On October 6, Israel and Gaza were in a ceasefire. How did that work out?
10,000,000 civilians were killed in World War I. Where were the protests? Where were the cries for humanitarian aid? Where were the cries, “Watch out for the civilians?” Where were the flyers to notify civilians of where to expect the strikes so they could move out of harm’s way? Where were the demands for a humanitarian ceasefire?
38,000,000 civilians were killed in World War II. Where were the protests?
2,000,000 Germans were killed in World War II, while 70,000 British were killed. Does that mean the British were the evil ones? Where was the call for equality?

This bombing of innocent civilians stopped Hitler, Germany’s monstrous dictator, Tojo, Japan’s tyrannical dictator, and Mussolini, Italy’s fascist dictator! The world felt that it was sadly unavoidable but definitely worth it to bomb the innocent to get rid of the dangerously wicked who were committing genocide.

Russia, though it denies targeting civilians, has hit hospitals, energy infrastructures, schools, residential buildings, and civilian infrastructures. Where are the protests? Where is the world’s call for humanitarian pauses?

1,500,000 civilians were killed in the Korean War. Where were the protests?
432,000 civilians were killed in Afghanistan, and millions were displaced. We cared about our soldiers but not the civilians. Where were the protests?
Millions of Arabs have been killed by other Arabs. Where were the protests? The West is shocked by the atrocities that occurred in Israel on October 7, but in the Arab world, beheading, decapitation, rape, and violent murder is commonplace. No one cares. No one protests!
Iran, Iraq, Syria, Hamas, and Hezbollah kill hundreds of thousands of their own people every year. Where is the world’s outcry? Where is the empathy? Where are the protests? Where is the UN condemnation?
Arab dictators and terrorists killed hundreds of thousands of Arabs in Libya and Syria. No one protested.

To rid the world of ISIS, our troops surrounded ISIS and kept food, water, fuel, and medicine from them until they surrendered. Innocent civilians were collateral damage. No one objected.
400,000 Yemenis were killed and starved by Saudi Arabia. Where were the protests?
70,000-100,000 young people are dying per year because the cartels in Mexico are sending fentanyl over the border. Where are the protests? These are our citizens dying. Where is the outcry?

Going further back in History:
50,000 civilians were killed in the Civil War. Where were the protests?
In 1863, in the Siege of Vicksburg, General Grant surrounded Vicksburg, cut off the supply lines, and relentlessly refused the entrance or exit of anyone for 40 days, causing the inhabitants of the city to eat dogs and rats and die of starvation. Where were the protests? Where was the cry for a humanitarian cease-fire?
In 1864, General Sherman admittedly marched through, raided, and slaughtered everyone in the Battle of Atlanta. Where were the protests? Where was the cry for a humanitarian cease-fire? General Sherman said, “War is cruel, and you cannot refine it.” Later, he revised his comment, saying, “War is Hell.”
President Abe Lincoln, one of our greatest presidents, approved these tactics to win the war and keep the Union united. He could have agreed to a two-state solution, separating the North and South, but he united the states and abolished barbaric slavery. The end justified the means.
The question then is: Where in history did a country give its sworn enemy a time-out, do precise targeted fighting, drop leaflets, and make phone calls to warn its civilians to move out of harm’s way? Has a country ever opened passageways for enemy civilians to leave? When has a country ever provided its enemy with food, medicine, water, and electricity? When has a country ever brought in doctors, nurses, incubators, and medical supplies to treat the wounded in its enemy territory? Never! Never before was this expected of a country, and never would any other country but Israel think to do this… But Israel cares about humanitarian needs!
Israel is defending itself against its inhumanely vicious terrorist attackers, and the threat of extinction, and the world is championing the terrorists.
Suddenly, everyone is siding with Hamas. Suddenly, everyone cares about civilians, screaming for humanitarian aid and demanding a cease-fire.
Suddenly, everyone is protesting Israel’s right to get back its precious hostages and defend its right to exist!
In other words: Everyone is doing exactly what Hamas has set the world up to do: care more about the “innocent” Palestinians, whom they are using as human shields, than about the slaughtering, beheading, burning, raping, and kidnapping of Jews. How can immoral anti-Semitic individuals dare to cry out for morality?
