“It is better and more satisfactory to acquit a thousand guilty persons
than to put a single innocent one to death.”
The Leader of the Jewish State made a speech at the UN General Assembly 24th September 2009 stating: “Never has a country gone to such extraordinary lengths to remove the enemy’s civilian population from harm’s way.”
Despite issuing warnings, the State of Israel had all means of escaping the violence of war closed, under the 2005 agreement with Egypt, thereby preventing civilians from fleeing a war zone.
If the State of Israel doesn’t adhere to even the most basic tenets of Judaism, why call it the Jewish State?
Geneva Convention 1V Section II Occupied territories Art49 The Occupying Power shall not detain protected persons in an area particularly exposed to the dangers of war unless the security of the population or imperative military reasons so demand.
Not even the mercy of fleeing by boat after being driven into the sea. Israel controls all Palestinian territorial waters off Gaza’s coast.
If the Jewish State doesn’t adhere to the Customary Laws of War, why is it in the UN?
Think about the warnings, if you dare. We’re expected to believe only civilians are going to read the leaflets or listen to the warnings? Does that really make sense? Like all Hasbara, it simply does not add up.
“Hey Mahmoud, what do you think you’re doing? You can’t read that, it’s for civilians only ………….. pssst….. what does it say?“
“It says civilians should flee the war zone to… to… uh… to… oh, some other part of the war zone, because one of the most modern equipped militaries in the world with their tanks, artillery, fighter bombers, missiles, fletchettes, cluster bombs, white phosphorus, infantry and billions of loverly dollars of US military aid, is coming to get us”
“Uh huh. Nice of them to give everyone a warning”
“But they’re only warning civilians”
“Too late now, we’ve read th’ leaflet”
“Say …… doesn’t that sort of screw their plan?”
“Not if you’re an Israeli propagandist pretending to be concerned about civilian casualties.”
“Ah. I see….So…..how much time have we got?”
“A few hours”
“OK…. hand me another one of them rickety olde home made rockets. Maybe we can hit something other than sand before we get outta here!”
“Right…. Uh… when you say … “get outta here” … er … th’ crossings are all closed, there’s only here to go unless we swim out to the limit and wait till it’s all over?”
“You’d be lucky to get to the limit. Maybe about 2 mile, tops!”
“Really? Is that all?”
“S a y …… Can I borrow your swimming trunks?”
“Uh? … what will I wear?”
