"That is the reality"

Seraphic Secret is driving home a truth that slaps in its intensity and validity... or certainly ought to:

Six million dead over the past ten years.

Six. Million.

Murdered through barbaric violence and mass starvation.

But, oddly enough, not with that weapon of death, the paint ball gun.

Mass rape is a weapon unleashed on thousands of women every single day.

Over a million refugees are living in filth, dying of disease and starvation.

We're talking about... Congo.

Perhaps the scale of the humanitarian tragedy is too much for people to comprehend, or perhaps the hidden corporate agenda of mainstream media in the United States will not allow this story to see the light of day. The rape and plunder of Congo's resources is behind the great silence which surrounds this story. The proxy armies of Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda serve the international corporate agenda. The story is complicated, and will never be fully understood except within the confines of historical analysis.
Meanwhile, six million are dead in the last ten years, 1,200 people die every day, unspeakable crimes against women's bodies go unreported, and the 1.2 million innocents in refugee camps cannot afford the time to wait for history's analysis of the reasons behind their despair and misery. More than 2,000 rape cases were recorded last month alone in the Democratic Republic of Congo's violent North Kivu province.

Full story here.

But no one questions the legitimacy of the Congo, arguably the most barbaric, dysfunctional country on the face of the earth.

The U.N. barely notices Congo.

And all the so-called peace activists on the left who wail and gnash their teeth about non-existent Israeli atrocities are criminally silent when it comes to authentic war crimes; the oceans of innocent blood barely registers in their collective conscience.

You know why?

Because there are no Jews in Congo.

Because Congo is not the Jewish State.

Because anti-Zionism is the new Jew-hatred.

Because Jews were despised when we did not have a state, and now we are despised because we do have a state.

Israel's enemies are not interested in human rights. They are interested in the destruction of the Jewish State, the extermination of the Jewish people.

That is the reality.

There is no rebuttal to this.  None.

That too is the reality.

Seraphic Secret needs to be on your regular reading list.

Similar in various ways to the Rwandan genocide in the mid-1990's. Leftists didn't care one iota. It was black-on-black genocide. No way for leftists to project their anti-Semitism. No way to blame Republicans. So, they just ignored it.

Oh, please.

No one in the first world gives a crap about Africa, period. To try and blame this on "anti-Zionism", is crap.

Not caring about Africa is, in fact, one of the few fully bipartisan stands in America. Bush wrung his hands but didn't act about Darfur; Clinton wrung his hands but didn't act about Rwanda.

And to throw in on top that "Anti-Zionism is the new antisemitism", is crap cubed. Somehow the mere suggestion that Israel can be wrong, equates being against the existence of the state of Israel??

I guess all the jews in Israel and around the world who think that Israel overreacted in shooting 15 civilians dead - I guess they're all anti-Semites? How's that work?

Your take on this?

IHH is a Turkish humanitarian relief fund with a radical Islamic anti-Western orientation.

Some of the suspects were found to be carrying large sums of money. Others had Kevlar vests and gas masks; and all were found to be carrying weapons such as knives, metal clubs and slingshots.

Several of the suspected were wounded by IDF fire.

Investigators have already concluded that this was the group that planned the violent resistance, which centered on the Marmara's top deck.

Kinda reminds me of the gang bangers running drugs on the NJ Turnpike and AC Expressway that would rig shot guns into the driver's door, in case they "needed" to take out a cop at the knees during a stop.

Americans have to take responsibility for Israel's actions since are tax money and our Congressional representative support goes directly into actions like illegal raids, assassinations, starvation/malnutrition of children etc.

The point of the commentary is contained in the key phrase "all the so-called peace activists ... are criminally silent when it comes to authentic war crimes." Of course, jim x stressed the "15 civilians killed" while ignoring millions dead elsewhere, tens of thousands of rapes and over a million refugees.

Apb, of course the article's attempted point is that because liberals don't really do much about the congo, they must anti-Semitic to dare suggest that Israel is mistreating Palestinians.

My response is to point out that a) neither liberals nor conservatives really care about the congo, or Africa in general, and b) there are plenty of Jews around the world who disapprove of Israel. Are they all anti-Semites too?

Perhaps you might actually want to read my post again and respond to that. Or you could just remain a doodybag. There. I said it.

SCSIwuzzy, here two of the points in my comment:

Please explain why either of those points should be changed by your assertion that the boat's activists weren't peaceful.

You do realize there's a difference between "anti-Semitic" and "wrong", right?

So even if you think Israel is completely right, it's possible for someone to think they're wrong WITHOUT being anti-Semitic.

Right?

Upset Old Guy:

So, Jim X is carrying on about his fifteen, poor, dead "civilians." Just part of that group of 40 "civilians" lacking identification, wearing bullet-proof vests, armed and in possession of night vision devices. You know, the ones who threw one IDF member off the O-3 level to the metal deck on the O-1 level. The ones who attempted to hang an IDF member. Stabbed another. Beat other with metal pipes. Those "civilians."

For everyone else, Jim X doesn't need this since he doesn't really care: http://dover.idf.il/IDF/English/News/today/10/06/0201.htm

A telling quote from Jim:

"No one in the first world gives a crap about Africa, period."

Y'see, Jim doesn't give a crap about Africa, and so he assumes everyone else feels the same way. Now Israel, that country gets his panties in a twist far more... even though what is happening to those poor, peace-loving Palestinians at the hands of the evil Zionists doesn't even rate on the same scale.

And when you call him on his hypocritical bullshit, he shrieks like a wounded cat. When I see losers like him yelling as loudly about the human rights violations in China, North Korea, Congo, and all of the other places where people are butchered, I'll pay attention. Until then, I'm going to take his opinions for what they are: garden-variety antisemitism.

"Evil Otto", in my comment you skipped over my proof: that both Bush and Clinton did nothing about horrible events in Africa.

You are also, like others here, somehow construing my stance of "neither Palestinians nor Israelis are angels" as "Palestinians are 100%, Israelis are 100% guilty".

Apparently you can't handle the notion that Israelis might even be a little bit wrong.

Perhaps you even feel, like 914 does, that Jews in Israel who criticize Israel are also anti-Semites?

Bruce Henry:

What a load of hogwash this post is. American conservatives have ignored the Congo's problems to precisely the same degree as American liberals have. The issue of Israel/Palestine has exactly nothing to do with the issue of the Congo.

Conservatives who attempt to make hay out of the Congo issue would do well to read some history of the subject. A very good popular layman's history came out a few years back, called "King Leopold's Ghost." I forget the author's name.

It was conservatives, not liberals, who supported the attempts by Belgium to hold on to the Congo. It was conservatives and corporations, not liberals, who conspired to assassinate Lumumba. It was conservatives and corporations, not liberals, who facilitated the coup by Mobutu, and kept his brutal, kleptomaniacal regime in power for decades. And BOTH conservatives and liberals have ignored the tragic results.

This piece was just another pathetically transparent attempt to paint ALL criticism of ANY Israeli action as anti-Semitic. Using the tragedy of the Congo to do so simply illustrates the fact that conservatives will say or do anything, however distasteful or dishonest, to "win" an argument.
