You know this bit the Israeli apologists come out with when it is suggested to them that the current operation in Gaza might be considered just a little disproportionate? This bit about their right to defend themselves? Their 'country' and their people are being attacked? If it was our country we wouldn't stand for it? If Denmark was fucking fireworks at us then we'd go and kill us a whole fuck load of Danish kids? Well, Alexandra, Leonard, Jeff, and John folks, because it looks like that's exactly what just happened. Except what the fuck do you know, it weren't the Denmarkians what done it. It were Israel! Who the fuck would have thunk it?
I try to get an 'I know fuck all about this' precursor into all my political posts. Here you go: I know fuck all about this. But folks, let it be known that I speak from my ignorant heart.
Ireland, we're a whatdjacallit, a nation, right? Sure we are. I know this because we have a National Anthem and a National Concert Hall where we play our National Anthem and a National History Museum. where we keep this big stuffed deer yoke. Oh, and there's that song, 'A Nation Once Again'. Although maybe that's about England. Who knows? Anyway, we're a nation, I'm sure of it.
So one of the things that nations do is be in the United Nations. Or some nations anyway. Again, who the fuck knows? Not me. But this I do know: Ireland is one of the some nations. And Israel just bombed the UN compound. On purpose. Repeatedly. With phosphorus. So as far as Gimme is concerned Israel just bombed Ireland. On purpose. Repeatedly. With phosphorus.
Pop quiz, shit hots:
Small occasionally fatal rockets are to a 20 day aerial and ground assault using the most modern tanks and artillery resulting in the deaths of more than 1,000 people as phosphorous bombs are to what? What's that you say? A nuked Tel Aviv?
But wouldn't that be a little disproportionate?
