Andrew Bolt, Repercussions of Gaza

Andrew Bolt is a raving lunatic. There is no polite way of saying it. He is nostalgic for the days when Aboriginal kids could be stolen from their families without bleeding heart types being upset by notions of them having human rights.

Meanwhile, Israel is facing a crisis: Turkey suspended military cooperation with Israel, cancelling a military drill. An emergency meeting was held about the crisis. The Gaza massacre may become something like Israel’s Sharpeville. Certainly, Israel is getting increasingly bad press. Larry Derfner wrote derisively about IDF apologetics in the Jerusalem post.

THERE are no limits on our right to self-defense. There is no such thing as “disproportionate.” We can blockade Gaza, we can answer Kassams with F-16s and Apaches, we can take 100 eyes for an eye.

We can deliberately destroy thousands of Gazan homes, the Gazan parliament, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Interior, courthouses, the only Gazan flour plant, the main poultry farm, a sewage treatment plant, water wells and God knows what else.


After all, we’re acting in self-defense. By definition.

And what right do the Palestinians have to defend themselves against this?


Why? Because we’re better than them. Because we’re a democracy and they’re a bunch of Islamo-fascists. Because ours is a culture of life and theirs is a culture of death. Because they’re out to destroy us and all we are saying is give peace a chance.

Today, Human Rights Watch issued a release on the blockade:

“Israel’s blockade affects every aspect of life in Gaza, and is even preventing students from having basic school supplies,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch. “What possible justification can there be for blocking school supplies, which effectively deprives children of their right to an education?”

Meanwhile, 88 new refuseniks wrote a letter to the Israeli government. They will not serve.
