Tel Aviv, Israel just recently experienced an awful terror attack that left many folks injured and four dead, a horrible tragedy that absolutely demands military action.
But not so fast.
Our dear leader of the free world, Barack Obama, says Israel shouldn’t fight back against this horrific act of terror and seek to get justice for the victims and their families.
This man is despicable.
From Jerusalem Post:
The State Department underscored its condemnation of an attack on civilians at a Tel Aviv market on Thursday, but cautioned the Israeli government to “exercise restraint” as it vows to increase security control over the West Bank and its residents.
“We understand the Israeli government’s desire to protect its citizens after this kind of terrorist attack,” said Mark Toner, a spokesman for the State Department. “We would just hope that any measures that Israel takes would be designed to not escalate tensions any further, but we certainly respect their desire to express outrage and to protect the safety of their people.”
Nine Israelis were shot on Wednesday night by at least three Palestinian men, in what has been characterized by the United Nations, the US and Israel as an act of terror. Four of the victims have died.
The decision by Israel not to return the bodies of dead Palestinian perpetrators to their families– a policy Israel considers a deterrent against future attacks– is “obviously an internal matter for Israel to debate,” Toner remarked. But he made note of Israel’s decision to constrict ease of travel for thousands of Palestinians in and out of the strip.
Toner said the US seeks to “simply caution” Israel to “take into account” the affect that these new security measures, including an increase in troops, will have on the lives of Palestinian civilians.
Not escalate tensions further? They were attacked by terrorists!
Does a nation not have the right to defend itself after being attacked by radical Muslim extremists who are bent on the destruction of an entire people group?
Obama has never been a big fan of the nation of Israel, a beef that has its roots in the progressive narrative that the country is somehow treading on the rights of Palestinians. A lot of progressives are very anti-Semitic for this very reason.
They don’t seem to care much about the fact Hamas and other Palestinian terrorists are the ones who are murdering Jews left and right. No, that doesn’t matter.
You see, in their minds, terrorists like those in Hamas are freedom fighters, not evil wicked Muslim terrorists who want Islam to rule the world.
Israel has every right to engage the enemy killing its people and should promptly ignore our deplorable president and his faux calls for peace.
