Remind me again when they met when Gaza was bombing Israel?
Only when Israel retaliates.
Oddly enough, I blame Israel for this continuing nonsense.
For the simple reason that no other country in the world would permit such harassment without forcing the offending group to leave.
But four major wars have been fought against Israel, in which the Paleos have openly supported the foreign armies trying to destroy Israel, but after the Israeli victories, *nothing* was done against their fifth column Paleos. Nothing!
Common sense dictates that the restive Gazans should have long ago been pushed into Egypt, one way or another. The Israelis could have been brutal in doing so, or they could have been “nice guys”, to assuage their overwhelming feelings of stupid guilt, and given each and every one of the Paleos cash on the way out the door. BUT THEY WOULD BE GONE. For good. Never, ever to darken Israel’s doorstep again.
This is simple enough to understand. And until Israel does what every other country in the world would do, this problem will continue. With Israelis being murdered. Indiscriminate attacks falling down on their heads. Infiltrators bent on homicide bombings.
Why, oh why can’t Israel do the sensible thing and make an end of it? Their overwhelming guilt at the thought of doing so is insane. Unjustifiable. Mentally ill.
They could end the problem tomorrow, and after some brief hubbub, the rest of the world would forget about it, thankful that the continual, nagging, festering wound that is the Paleos has *finally* stopped.
And, of course, if the Paleos decided to annoy their Egyptian hosts even in the slightest, the Egyptians would not hesitate for a moment to discipline them. And nobody would care one whit.
The UN decided not to do anything in their “emergency meeting” because they all forgot to bring a pen and paper to the meeting. How are they going to write a letter if nobody brings paper and a pen to the meeting?
Meanwhile, Obama has a difficult schedule, no time for trivial problems after a short jaunt to NYC.
"The President views storm damage, talks with citizens who are recovering from the storm and thanks first responders who put their lives at risk to protect their communities."
Wonder how those citizens view the response of FEMA?
From The White House, President's schedule November 15, 2012:
4:35 pm "The President hosts cast and crew members of the film Lincoln for a screening at the White House"
The terrorists launch 240 rockets from Gaza into Israel in two days, and the UN meets to discuss Israel’s counterattack? The UN has no legitimacy and no purpose beyond undermining freedom and decency.
Agreed. Go Bibi!
there was no emergency meeting called for immediately when the rockets from Gaza began hitting Israel, ONLY when Israel responded
