Israeli Criticism is not Anti-Semitism
Israel troops admit Gaza abuses
Israel frequently claims to possess the most moral army in the world
An Israeli military college has printed damning soldiers' accounts of the killing of civilians and vandalism during recent operations in Gaza.
One account tells of a sniper killing a mother and children at close range whom troops had told to leave their home.
Another speaker at the seminar described what he saw as the "cold blooded murder" of a Palestinian woman.
Don’t dismiss the tragedy if the victims are Palestinians and the blame is pointing at Israel. Criticism is not anti-Semitism so no need to panic. If one doesn’t have the courage to condemn the continued Israeli atrocities then at least acknowledge the human tragedy. Through out the history of this conflict, the human suffering has been almost completely one-sided i.e. Palestinians. It is they who have been paying the price of the German Nazi atrocities of Holocaust. They were the ones forced out of their homes, made refugees in their own country because Europe did terrible things to Jews in second word war. Since its creation, Israel choosing to see everyone from gun sight is the result of West’s unqualified support for whatever it does has also never ever helped.
Yes, Israel has the right of existence and it has had some very real concerns for the sovereignty and security of state and its people but the way it has conducted itself with the Palestinians is far from impressive. While we hypocritically look away its Israeli soldiers, NGOs and general pubic again this time who have the courage to speak up and admit the plight of Palestinians.
We quote UN resolutions to run over Iraq and Afghanistan, condemn Zimbabwe, Iran and North Korea but the same UN become irrelevant when the victims happen to be Palestinians and the oppressors the Israeli governments.
condemn the perpetrators for the loss of human life and suffering in a conflict regardless of the fact whose side they are on. If you will find me condemning Taliban for their medieval, twisted and out of touch faith then you will also find me condemning Ahmedin Najad the Iranian President who wants to wipe Israel off the map of the world. If you see me condemning Israeli atrocities then you might remember me reproving Hamas for its rocket attacks. From Bali to New York I have condemned the Islamic terror and also the people like Dick Chaney and Rums field whose war mongering and lust for oil fields has pushed us all to an ongoing conflict at a massive scale.
So before knocking me off please allow your self a thought to start acknowledging the suffering of human irrespective of their race, religion and political affiliation and be brave enough to condemn, stop and discourage the offenders even if they are on your side. This will be one major step to prevent these mishaps from happening in the future. I have the proof for that, even being a Kashmiri and in the centre of the main cause of Indo-Pak conflict, the amount of love and respect I have received from my Indian friends was more than I expected. I can be rest assured that with people like us across the border we will find an amicable and practical solution for this issue which won’t compromise the national interests and principles and hostilities will change into mutual trust and friendship.
