Israel's War Crime Problem

NYT Article

I give credit to the NYT for running this article. Most other media outlets protect Israel when these reports come out, which they frequently do, by refusing to cover it.

And in the context of all these silly Senators and their opposition to Chuck Hagel's nomination, let's make the obvious point. The pro-Israel wing of the US Senate (which is around 90% of the Senate) is trying its best to rake Hagel over the coals on his statements about Israel and Iran, and this is done in the service of a country that is routinely found guilty of war crimes (Cast Lead/Goldstone report) by humans rights groups and the UN. What is wrong with this picture? McCain is up there trying to spin the surge as a success, even though he backed the lies that took us into war, war which we all recognize as a catastrophic blunder. Only the Israel zealots still claim that Iraq was justified. Why do we still listen to these Zionist neocon clowns? Why are they treated with such veneration? They have been wrong and dishonest and downright unpatriotic with their machinations, and now these same blowhards are trying to block Hagel's nomination, because he does not want to pursue another illegal and avoidable war with Iran for Israel's sake?

How I wish it were just a bad dream I could wake up from. How I wish I was just exaggerating the issue. How I wish Americans would just see this reality.
