New York Post Editorial: Blood is on Hamasí hands, not Trumpís
New York Post ^ | 05/15/2018 | Michael Goodwin

Posted on 05/15/2018 7:51:32 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Amidst the screaming headlines about “massacre” and “war crimes” and unsettling pictures of Arab casualties, keep in mind the central question: When is it the right time to do the right thing?

That’s the question President Trump faced when considering whether to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem. His three predecessors had used a loophole in the 1995 law requiring the move to give a consistent and increasingly cynical answer of, “Not now, maybe later.”

That dodge lasted 22 years, until Trump cut through the nonsense last December with a statement of resounding moral clarity. Now, he said, is the right time to do the right thing.

It was a singular decision and Monday’s opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, righted a historic wrong. As both American and Israeli speakers noted, the custom throughout the world and throughout the ages is for foreign embassies to be located in the city designated by the host country as its capital.

And so now the rest of the world is out of step when it comes to Israel — and only Israel. That would be a curious exception if the pattern weren’t so pronounced and the reason so obvious.

The world’s double standard against the Jewish state helps explain the decision by Hamas leaders in Gaza to mix armed terrorists and unarmed civilians and urge them to crash through the border fence. This was murder, and not by Israeli soldiers defending their country against a mass invasion.

The blood of the dead and wounded is on the hands of the merciless Hamas thugs who sent their people on a suicide mission that had zero chance of military success

But, of course, military success was not the goal. The goal was to get the headlines and pictures the world is seeing, the bloodier the better.

So when The New York Times writes that “Israel Kills Dozens and Wounds 1,700 at Gaza Border,” it’s mission accomplished for Hamas.

Success is getting the usual suspects to gang up on Israel. Indeed, the statements condemning it for a “disproportionate” response didn’t even need to be written anew.

Amazing how out of step the Dems and their media supporters are, quite embarrassing actually.

Quite a contrast today between the Post and the Daily News (spit).

The toll shows the fire discipline of IDF troops facing 40,000 rioters. The deaths of probably identified armed rioters and wounding of rioters probably trying to breach the border shows great restraint. As closely packed as they were non disciplined automatic weapons fire or artillery could have easily stopped the riot much faster with casualties in tens of thousands.

It really gets me, that with the embassy move, this violence is blamed on Trump, for inciting violence with the embassy move.

The news coverage has focused on the violence, and how Trump is to blame, rather than talk about the historic nature of moving our embassy to Jerusalem.

Wow, a Trump and Israeli leaning article. What heresy!

This is certainly out of step with today's media, which might as well be in the planning stage meetings when it comes to terrorism these days. Got to get your stories straight from the get-go and all.

That's our mistake for expecting "news" agencies to actually report "news" in a dispassionate unbiased way. We really need a name change so we don't continue to fall in that trap, these "news" people are actually Left Wing hate filled activists.

Hufpo has article on BABY killed. What parents brings a baby to an attempted border breaching where live fire is going on? Not human ones. All the comments are shut down on the Hufpo about this subject too. I wonder why, NOT!

The Fraud refused to even use the word “Jerusalem”, instead calling it “al quds” for his terrorist BFF’s.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the parents were holding the baby up in order to expose it to harm.

The left is solidly behind the America-hating, bearded savages. They have chosen their side. They hate us and love low-IQ fanatical savages.

I know, as a Christian, I should not hate the libtards, but I am having extreme amounts of difficulty, not doing exactly that.
I am so totally cynical of the libtards, that I would ask, how do we know that these bastards, are NOT in planning meetings with terrorists?

To declare Hamas has bloody hands is to either miss or to obfuscate the point.

Iran has bloody hands in yet another location. Iran attacked Israel with missiles from Syria. Iran attacked Riyadh, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with missiles from Yemen.

It is time for Israel and Saudi Arabia to attack directly the cowardly mullahs of Iran. The Saudi air force (and the UAE) should fly cover for the Israeli air force that destroys Bandar Shahpur (Homani) with bombs. The refineries and crude loading facilities there are an easy target minutes away from Saudi Arabia.

So the dems and the eurocucks did not want the embassy in jeruselem because the pigs and monkeys might start flinging poo everywhere? Seriously? They were afraid there might be violence...in the middle freaking east? How is this different than any other randomly picked day?

Perhaps conservatives should start blowing kale restaurants up whenever liberals do something we disapprove of

Don’t feel guilty.

Most Liberals would put you and your Family in a Railway Cattle Car headed for a Camp if they could without hesitation.

That is real hate. They take away your Rights while complaining that you want to take away theirs.

Look no further than the Primary Election Commercials their Leaders are flooding the Media with. It is disgusting.

We look at them as ignorant and probably deluded, they simply hate our guts and it seems with every passing day it consumes them more and more.

You express a lot of people’s opinions when it comes to their thoughts concerning the state (mindset) of Leftist people these days.

Shock, anger, incredulity, humor, the whole gamete of emotions are in play for various parts of their nonsense.

They don’t like Capitalism. The world’s largest most notable Communist nation does. And look at the progress in China since it abandoned the collective business ideology just shy of 30 years ago. They jumped forward about five to seven decades.

They don’t like our Constitution, which gives them the right to do what they do in public. It also gives them the opportunity to take matters to court and get relief if their beliefs are accurate.

They don’t like our flag, our national anthem, and the predominant race of people here.

Of course this predominant race of people for the most part created the leading nation on the planet. Many of them refuse to join the rest of us working to create our own future, and then complain because they don’t think they have a future.

These are very simple minded people. They just can’t grasp the simple main concepts of life.

Yes, they would. Screw them. I DO hold them in utter contempt, and since this is a family forum, I don’t say what I really think of these scum sucking Siberian snow lizards, but I think you can figure it out on your own.
By the way, my old high school classmate, was a FEMA agent. I asked her, if she ever heard of any contingency plans to open FEMA concentration camps. She said she heard rumors here and there about it, but was not positive about it.
