I happened to catch a few minutes of the Glenn Beck show, a show I never watch, two nights ago. He was discussing Israel and expressing consternation that anyone would dare criticize that nation, particularly when neighboring countries such as Syria shoot their own people (protesters). He then went on to allege that Israel never shoots protesters.
During the first intifada, Israel killed hundreds of children
, and maimed 40,000 more.
During the 50's, in a place called Kafr Kassem, Israel had imposed a curfew on the villagers - unbeknownst to them - and then gunned down those in violation thereof - including children, killing 49
Then there's the time that Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount in 2000. The Israelis killed 13 Arab protesters a few days later
There are numerous examples of Israel's killing of civilians - protesters or otherwise. For example, Rachel Corrie
, an American citizen, was protesting the home demolitions along the Rafah border. An Israeli bulldozer ran her over - twice. No action was taken by the American government.
Glenn Beck - get your facts straight next time you open your mouth. No one at Fox News (owned and operated by Christian Zionist Rupert Murdoch) will correct you, but rest assured, this Republican writer is more than up to the task.
