The Bravery Of Robert Bernstein

There rarely goes a day where Israel isn’t viciously attacked by ever-powerful non-profit organizations or the bountiful exploding bottle rockets of the Hamas-Al-Qaeda-Islam-Iran Brigade. Even with the best funded, most technologically advanced army and the worlds largest undocumented nuclear arsenal, Israel is utterly helpless in the face of sternly worded human rights reports or mistranslated Ahmadinejad quotes. Thankfully, Robert Bernstein, former Executive Director of the Human Rights Watch, had the courage and temerity to stand up and say no to the impending slaughter of Israel by NGO’s in a New York Times op-ed:

Human Rights Watch has lost critical perspective on a conflict in which Israel has been repeatedly attacked by Hamas and Hezbollah, organizations that go after Israeli citizens and use their own people as human shields. These groups are supported by the government of Iran, which has openly declared its intention not just to destroy Israel but to murder Jews everywhere…

Yet Israel, the repeated victim of aggression, faces the brunt of Human Rights Watch’s criticism.

What don’t you idiotic genocidal human rights reporters get? Israel and Jews everywhere are always the victim. I don’t care how many civilians Israel kills, how many war crimes it commits, or how many wars it starts. Israel is a free, democratic nation that does everything to protect civilians from its bombs of peace, and if you don’t agree, I will bend the truth, then call you an anti-Semite when my logic collapses on itself.
