Stop Saying 'If X Fired Rockets at U.S.': It's Racist, and Assumes We're Colonial

There are 27 comments on the Truthdig story from Jul 12, 2014, titled Stop Saying 'If X Fired Rockets at U.S.': It's Racist, and Assumes We're Colonial. In it, Truthdig reports that:

Is anyone else disgusted by the propaganda trick of trying to get Americans to sympathize with Israel's massive attack on the civilian habitations of Gaza by saying, "If the U.S. was subjected to rocket fire by X [usually Mexicans], what would it do?" This hope that Americans are racists and that their racism can be incited against the Palestinians ... (more)

Rockets fired into Israel and become possible threats to civilians are intercepted thanks (again) to U.S. tax dollars.
.
Bombing and shelling civilians is the warcrime. Check out Goldstone report. He's Jewish and agrees with me.
.
Power and water, rightfully belonging to Palestinians. have been hi-jacked by Israel.
.
Base of operations for refugees is not equatable to a nation having multiple bases--
at U.S. expense--for a modern army, navy and air force.
.
Killing defenseless people is one thing, covering up the hateful act with lies is another! Your lies, I am saying, are worse than those Israeli forces who are actually committing the genocide--again at U.S. expense.
You seem to be lacking in facts here.
Goldstone himself retracted his support for his own report. http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2011/04... there are hundreds of links.
He also said previously that the report would not stand up in a court of law. Basically it is a bunch of hearsay and there are various parts which disagree with other parts. At the same time all you have to do is name the HRC and those who wrote the report. This should be enough for any intelligent person to understand the conclusions were drawn by the writers (of their own admission) before they even started investigating.

So he basically said that Israel doesn't intentionally target civilians. This is clear from the fact that after nearly 1500 missiles have been fired only 1/10 has killed a person. In one of the most densely populated places in the world. While Hamas admit to using Human Shields. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Not sure why the Jewish reference? Is that how you reach your conclusions and what you base your opinion on? If a Jew says something bad about Israel it is automatically fact?

How does power belong to the Palestinians? it is a private company which provides electricity. Some of the water comes from desalinization plants and most from inside the green line. SO you are basically saying that Israel has no right to exist nor does ownership of land, property, or business if you are a Jew.
Funny how you perceive yourself as the moral one.

You are the evil one supporting Hamas and their genocidal intentions.

AGAIN NOT SURE HOW ANYONE CAN DENY THAT HAMAS USE HUMAN SHIELDS, FIRE FROM CIVILIAN AREAS AND FIRE ON CIVILIAN AREAS. THIS IS A MULTIPLE WAR CRIME. THERE WOULD BE NO ISRAELI RETALIATION IF THEY WERE NOT FIRING MISSILES AT ISRAELI CITIES. THEY ADMIT IT OPENLY.

Basically you are calling me a liar when the people you supposedly support would call you a liar. Your support for evil is disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself unless you are a Muslim extremist. Than it would make more sense.

As for the Iron Dome while the US helped to fund it the development is mostly from Israel.

Leaflets! Reminiscent of the shelling of the Jewish ghetto by the Germans during WWII. It's OK --according to you--to destroy people and their homes b/c you've informed them of the action beforehand.
.
.In general, the effort to blame Hamas and other groups for the apartheid, displacements and oppression committed only by Israel(with the support of U.S. tax dollars) is--in and of itself-- a load of crap.
German Jews were citizens who were not working to destroy the state and massacre the population. Nice BS comparisons. Come back when you leave high school IDIOT.

Maybe they shouldn't have elected 67% Hamas.

My questions are these:
Why can't the Palestinians stop warring against Israel?
Why not put all of their energy into using more land as farms, and industry?
If they became self sufficient, they would have no time to worry about Israel.
Why aren't t the billionaire Arab Muslims not helping the Palestinians to become productive?
The Palestinians might as well give in, because if this continues, they're going to get liquidated.
The Six Day War, should have given them a good example!
Stag-Ar-Lee Can't answer these questions as he may have to admit that they bring it on themselves and have created a society whose only real aim is the destruction and massacre of another. They admit to all of this.

There is nothing racist about defending yourself against hundreds of missiles being shot at you. What is racist is condemning Israel for doing it, just because it is Israel. I don't care if it is your mother shooting missiles at me. Who ever it is, would get a strong defense from me that will drive home the point that you don't get to be an aggressive, belligerent, destructive fool without paying a price which may possibly be death. You don't get to hide your war machines in civilian neighborhoods without you yourself being responsible for it causing the deaths of those you are using as human shields. Peace begets peace. War begets war. Simple concept.
O, please... The whole eternal victim act from Israel isnt't going to work anymore.

Israel started firing their rockets into Gaza FIRST, in a act of collective punishment for the three Israeli teens slaying. Everything that followed from Hamas has been RETALIATION.

Stop your pathetic attempt to spin the matter. Youre just making yourself appear as being okay with genocide.

The one fact youre not considering is that niether of you Jews or Palestinians are the true owners of that land, so youmight aswell just get along because youre all just squatters.

Also its interesting to see that the US media and the international community is far more critical of Israel this time around than Ive ever seen. The game is coming to close for you Talmud worshippers.

??? Who owns the land then???

Do you not believe in individual ownership rights? or are you speaking religion?

Most Israelis and Jews are not practicing.

The US media and international community has always been critical. They are the ones funding the Palestinian incitement, missiles, rockets, guns, education and salaries to mass murderers dependent on the number of Jews they kill.

So moral the world.

This would be like saying that the US started with Al-Qaida because it invaded Afghanistan.
Hamas never stopped firing their missiles into Israel nor trying to breach the border.
This is not about an act of collective punishment but the fact that Hamas must be exterminated once and for all.
Hamas calls for the destruction of Israel no matter what and their founding charter called to kill Jews as a policy. They act on all this and you claim retaliation????

Stop your pathetic attempt to spin the matter. You are just making yourself appear as being okay with genocide. It is Hamas who call for Genocide against the Jews in their charter you live in denial.

1500 targeted missiles dropped with 170 casualties. So only 1/10 missiles hits a person the majority being terrorists or human shields.

You preach morality while supported Hamas you should be ashamed of yourself.

I suppose when Israel pulled out of Gaza it was to blame also for the continuous missile fire the past decade at Israeli civilians.
