|…So this eminent international jurist Goldstone turns out to be a bit of a dunce. His penultimate paragraph: “Simply put, the laws of armed conflict apply no-less to non-state actors such as Hamas than they do to national armies.”
This man is a slave to his generation’s wicked clichés. “Non-state actors.” Now what the heck is that? Max Weber the famous German sociologist and theorist of what makes a state said it has the authority; it has a monopoly on the use of force, deadly force, to raise an army or a police force. The state, the government is the body that licenses people to carry weapons and use them if need be.
Versus Hamas, a “non-state actor,” he says, that licenses itself to possess weapons of death to murder Jews. Here Goldstone the slave of intellectual fashion accepts the moral equivalence between the legitimate use of deadly force by a recognized governmental authority such as that of Israel, and Hamas this band of outlaws loyal to no state which arrogates to itself the right to acquire weapons and murder Jews independent any governmental authority. Here Goldstone the Sunday school teacher admonishes Hamas to play by the rules. Not for him calling them terrorists and therefore a criminal outlaw organization like the Mafia. No, they are “non-state actors” who also play by the rules.
This guy is a dunderhead. Ronald Reagan of blessed memory had the integrity to withdraw US participation in this farce of a Human Rights Council, then called a Commission, which Emir Barack Hussein Obama rejoined. He is America’s first Third World intellectual president.
Well, in the matter of Hamas, whom the Israelis foolishly do not re-brand as the Muslim Brotherhood, which is what they are, it is a crying shame that fools like Goldstone are oblivious to the role of Islam in this violence and what a retrograde culture it is.
Look at the past couple of days in Afghanistan following the burning of the Qur’an at that church in Gainesville, Florida. I don’t recommend burning Qur’ans precisely because Islam is such a violent religion thank to Qur’ans. On Friday thousands of believers there in Afghanistan stormed a UN office in the north and seven foreign aid workers were murdered.
I don’t recommend burning the Qur’an but Pastor Terry Jones is right on target in seeing in the Qur’an a dangerous document, dare we say an evil book. Look at how some Muslims respond to the book-burning: murder. The barbaric murder of innocent people. What kind of religion is it that allows for these massacres of innocent non-combatants?
Islam is a menace, and Geert Wilders in Holland is right on target too. Political correctness requires treating Islam as if it were in the same class as Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Jainism, Shintoism, Hinduism, as a religion like all others.
No, it is not a religion like all others. None of the above threatens mankind the way Islam does.
Which makes of Richard Goldstone an even bigger dummy for siding in Gaza against us Jews with the Muslim Brotherhood…
