Zionist rally with NY Dem Attendees full of hate and Godlessness among people who think they love God.
EXCERPT from AlterNet – “Pro-Israel Rally Attended by Big-Time NY Dems Descends into Calls for ‘Wiping Out’ Palestinians” by Max Blumenthal:
On January 11, an estimated 10,000 people rallied in front of the Israeli consulate in midtown New York in support of Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip. The rally, which was organized by UJA-Federation of New York and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York in cooperation with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, featured speeches by New York’s most senior lawmakers. While the crowd was riled to righteous anger by speeches about Hamas evildoers, the event was a festive affair that began and ended with singing and joyous dancing.…
But hatred was plentiful at the rally Paterson addressed. Right in front of the stage, a man held a banner reading, “Islam Is A Death Cult.” Rally attendees described the people of Gaza to me as a “cancer,” called for Israel to “wipe them all out,” insisting, “They are forcing us to kill their children in order to defend our own children.” A young woman told me, “Those who die are suffering God’s wrath.” “They are not distinguishing between civilians and military, so why should we?” said a member of the group of messianic Orthodox Jewish Chabad-Lubavitch group that flocked to the rally.
No one I spoke to could seem to find any circumstance in which they would begin to question Israel’s war. No number of civilian deaths, no displays of extreme suffering — nothing could deter their enthusiasm for attacking one of the most vulnerable populations in the world with the world’s most advanced weaponry. There are no limits, no matter what Israel does, no matter how it does it.
We’re seeing collectivist tribalism at its worst in this “pro-West” meme.
Love is God and God is love in that love is an irrational, subjective feeling that we all know is real, but can never prove with logic and facts. As far as I’m concerned, to hate a human being able to experience the love of God is to hate God.
And that’s fine, if you’re Godless and want to sacrifice your autonomy for institutions such as the State or your race or your class and participate in the endless us v. them clusterfuck that harms humanity. You can be Godless and still celebrate love, liberty and the non-aggression axiom.
But, you cannot have God and hate for the innocents who need love the most in the same heart, whether you parade for the death of a Gazan child, a Nicaraguan mother, an El Salvadoran priest, a rabbi feeding the poor in Mumbai or a World Trade Center security guard.
I’m not a religious man. I have a personal faith that belongs to me which I don’t assumes others should have, but there’s a level of rationale anyone must meet in order to justifiably exercise domination of any sort — and it’s quite simple: apply the same (or higher) standards to yourself as you do to those you wish to dominate. Until then, no God or rational being can legitimize your use of force.
