hope it’s not too late….
A fly falls into a cup of coffee.
An Italian – throws the coffee, get angry and goes home.
French – takes out the fly and drinks the coffee.
Chinese – Throws the coffee and eats the fly.
Russian – Drinks the coffee quietly.
Israeli– Sells the coffee to the French, The fly to the Chinese, buys himself a new cup of coffee, with the money he has left he starts a company to develop a device which prevents flies from falling into coffee cups.
Palestinian – blames the Israeli for putting the fly in his coffee, complains to the UN about the Israel using excessive force, gets money from the European union to buy a new cup of coffee – but in fact – uses the money to buy explosives and blows up the coffee shop in which the Italian, French, Chinese and Russian drink coffee with them inside while they are trying to explain to the Israeli that he MUST give up his coffee cup for the Palestinian….
I Red a great article today actually describing the absurd situation in which this world is in.
I have been reading, watching and hearing thousands of articles, video clips and audio clips where Israeli officials and politicians are interviewed with this opening line “….XXX number of people were killed in the Gaza strip…” while images of destruction are shown in the background, luckily, the Israeli politicians are immune to these situations and handle these situations really well.
The real questions one must ask are: do bloody images do the job? are bloody images the key to public option?
If you bleed, does that make you right?
and getting back to the subject, should Israel stop defending itself with the Iron dome system in order for Israelis to get hurt and so that Israel would have some bloody images and bodies lying in the middle of Tel Aviv?
I really wish I had someone or some organization to ask these question, alas, the media is the only one who can answer these questions, and let me tell you something upfront, to the media: blood=great story=ratings=money.
So next time you watch the TV, listen to the radio or read the newspaper, think for a second:
are getting the full story here?
Do you believe the one who bleeds the most?
Does a higher body count allow Terrorists to get a “get out of jail card”?
while you think and try to find yourself an answer, I have to caution you, Terror has no country, it can and will strike wherever you will allow it to (9/11 for example) it is not only against Israel and Hamas is not the only Terrorist organization out there, and all of those organizations have learned that they can use our democracy and our moral to do horrifying things. Today, it is Israel who is fighting Hamas, tomorrow it can be Paris, Berlin, Rome, Washington, Sydney or anywhere in the world, and when it will, remember – how did you answer the above questions?
