Jim W. Dean is probably having a blast over the current news in the media. It has been reported that world leaders are headed to Paris “to attend a ‘silent march’ against terrorism, in memory of the 17 victims of several terror attacks in the French capital over the past few days.”
Surely you can’t make this stuff up.
Netanyahu, arguably one of the greatest political con men in the twentieth century, seized the opportunity to make a Zionist point:
“These attacks in Paris are a direct continuation to extremist Islam’s fight against our culture of freedom and the Western world, actually, against the entire modern world, and also against moderate Arab countries and entire publics in the Muslim world.”
Netanyahu, of course, will be in Paris.
All right. We all got the point: Muslims are responsible for the attack because they are intolerant. They are bad, sad, and mad people. And let us grant Netanyahu the ridiculous notion that the attack is “a direct continuation to extremist Islam’s fight against our culture of freedom and the Western world…”
But let us do some basic math using the Zionist narrative. We are told that 17 people lost their lives in Paris. If this is true, then their families are mourning at this present moment.
Now, let us turn the table around. How many men, women and children lost their lives in Gaza last year alone? Listen to the Guardian:
“In Gaza more than 2,100 people have been killed, most of them civilians, including about 500 children, in the past seven weeks. At least 11,000 people were injured and more than 17,000 homes destroyed or badly damaged.
“Around a third of Gaza’s 1.8 million people have been displaced, many now living in United Nations shelters. Schools, hospitals, factories, farms, mosques and infrastructure such as power and water plants were hit. Reconstruction could take up to 10 years, say analysts.
“On the Israeli side 64 soldiers died along with six civilians including a four-year-old boy. Hundreds of families relocated from homes near the Gaza border to safer areas further north.”
John Kerry himself made it clear that Israel’s carnage in Gaza was “a hell of a pinpoint operation.”The Huffington Post said, “Kerry [was] apparently unaware he was being recorded.”
Kerry, talking to his aid, continued, “We’ve got to get over there … I think…we ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”
Let us not forget that this is not the first that the Israelis have done this:
Gaza is still a concentration camp. “You cannot keep 1.8 million Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip in this huge prison,” said Palestinian U.N. ambassador Riyad Mansour last year. “That is a recipe for disaster. It is inhumane, and it has to be stopped and it has to be lifted.”
The simple question is this: will world leaders head to Gaza and demand that Israel end the occupation? Will they pick up a history book on Israel’s terrorism? Will they discuss the Levon Affair? How about the USS Liberty incident?
If the answer is a resounding no, then you can be sure that if whatever happened or didn’t happen in Paris last week will be in Israel’s favor. Jewish scholar Avner Cohen was right, “Hamas, to my regret, is Israel’s creation.”

 I’ve had the opportunity to contact one of the men onboard the ship and he declared that the Israelis did it deliberately. Readers are encouraged to check out his book. James M.
