During the war against Hamas last summer, the world condemned Israel for defending herself against 3,500 Hamas rockets. Left wing actors were brokenhearted over Israel’s supposed ‘savagery’ (But silent over Hamas’ targeting civilians). Who can forget Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardam signing a letter condemning Israel for a supposed ‘genocide’.
“In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is no place for distance or neutrality… It’s hard to understand and impossible to justify. And it’s disgraceful that western countries are permitting such genocide.”
In truth Hamas had created a series of tunnels and were planning a mass murder of Israelis in the nearby area. The Israeli Defense Forces prevented that only because Hamas got impatient and started a war.
Palestinians are Being Murdered However
Here is what is amazing! Palestinians are experiencing a real genocide and no one cares. Have you even heard one peep from Hollywood or MSNBC about Yarmouk?
Yarmouk Palestinian Refugee camp is under siege by Assad and under attack by ISIS. It has shrunk from 160,000 Palestinians to 18,000 in three years. Tens of thousands fled, thousands have been murdered, and many have died of starvation. Many of the remaining Palestinians are being prevented from leaving Yarmouk by ISIS, who instead is forcing them to be human shields… sound familiar?
Yarmouk has been described as an open-air prison.
Claiming that rebels were using Yarmouk, Assad’s forces laid siege to Yarmouk, leaving the residents without food, water and medical supplies.[i]
