Today I read that 6 of the people murdered on the Gaza Flotilla were killed by the same lunatic Israeli soldier, one man kills 6 people who were described by the Israeli liars as armed terrorists who were trying to kill them; well what can you say about this guy; does he wear his underpants outside his trousers or what? The dead were described in various lurid terms as fanatics who were out to kill Israeli soldiers and they were carrying weapons; the most charitable thing one can say is they were not very proficient killers were they? Israel with no apparent sense of incongruity are considering this soldier for a bravery medal; honestly. I have also been wondering about the Israeli version of events and come to the conclusion that they are calculatingly insulting the rest of the civilized world; they are going to some lengths to say “see what we are capable of; don’t mess with us; we are blood soaked kill crazy lunatics”
Anyway as far as the medal for this cold blooded killer is concerned I have to spoil their sick joke by telling them that the great Jewish writer Joseph Heller got there before them. In the comic novel masterpiece ‘Catch 22’ The American Air Force in Italy in WW11 are sent out to bomb a target and the aircrews can’t spot any enemy threat in fact it’s a small fishing village. The aircrews know that they can’t return with their bombs intact so they bomb the bay next to the village and the villagers are delighted at the dead fish which wash up.
The American Air Force using a shared logic which is now used by Israel decide to make up a heroic story and give all the men on the raid a medal; rather than admit to a blunder; the scene where the medals are handed out by a General Dreedle played by Orson Wells will stay in my memory for ever, the narrator Captain Yossarian can’t have his medal pinned on because he turns up at the parade stark naked. I reckon that this is not unlike the IDF right now; completely out of control or as Norman Finkelstein the radical left wing American scholar and Palestinian supporter said the other day “Israel is now a Lunatic State” Catch 22 though was hilarious black comedy; Gaza is anything but.
