Violence & Social Strife-3-G

06 Dec

The media continues to call for Israel to stop the fighting and to reduce civilian casualties, completely ignoring what is going on in the Mid-East. Many people, deceived by them are also condemning Israel for civilian casualties and calling on them to stop their attack on Gaza. Israel did not attack the Gaza strip until after Hamas attacked Israel. Hamas attacked Israel with no advanced warning, in one of the worst attacks imaginable. They raped women, slaughtered innocent children, and destroyed homes. They have continued to attack Israel with rockets targeting civilian populations. They have no military objective but have continued to call for the extermination of Israel. These were all deliberate attacks on civilians, yet we hear very little condemnation against them. Israel must defend herself or be destroyed. They have had to attack Gaza to destroy the rocket launchers and military camps that Hamas is using to attack Israel. Hamas has deliberately set up rocket launchers in hospitals and schools and set up their headquarters and military camps under the hospitals so Israel will have to attack them to wipe out the military sites. Israel has done everything they can to avoid civilian casualties. They always drop leaflets beforehand to warn civilians to leave. However Hamas has prevented civilians from leaving so they could use them for human shields to protect their military sites. Israel must attack the sites if they are to prevent further attacks against Israel and cannot avoid civilian deaths. Hamas should not only be condemned for its actions, but its leaders, when caught, should be tried for war crimes against Israel, before the world court, just as Germany’s leaders were.

The New York governor has allocated funds to built up the State police and encouraged the FBI to increase their presence on social media to combat hate speech. That sounds like a worthy goal. However, the truth is in the definition of hate speech. They consider hate speech to be anything that goes against their policies. They ignore their own attacks against parents who peacefully question their school’s policies, while ignoring their school text books that label  white people as oppressors and Black people as victims, fueling racial hatred. They arrest peaceful pro-life people who pray for those going to abortion centers and ignore the violent attacks on pro-life churches and pregnancy centers. They praise Hamas for its violent and senseless attack on Israel and condemn Israel for defending itself. They arrest peaceful pro-Israel demonstrators and ignore the pro-Palestinian demonstrators that violently attack them. Yet, the people of New York not only tolerate them but keep reelecting them. Is the media so corrupt that the people are unaware of what is going on or are the elections so corrupt that the elections are meaningless and the New York mob still appoints the people for public office? Is New York a glimpse of what our nation will be like if they prevail on the national level?

Liberals like to blame everyone but themselves for the violence. They are the ones setting up the policies that break down the family that teaches respect for authority, They are the ones taking the Bible out of our schools and the Ten Commandments out of our courts. They are the ones that ignore the law if it prevents them from doing what they want, and pressure parents not to discipline their children. They play up police shootings and break down respect for law, and call for attacking those that disagree with them. They push abortion, assisted suicide, and mercy killing, breaking down respect for life, and are the ones that publicize the shootings giving people that feel ignored the attention they seek. They refuse to admit they are causing the problem and feel that all they have to do is take away people’s guns and it will all go away. They seem to feel that without guns, everyone will be happy and love each other, and respect the law. They live in a dream world where they feel they are entitled to whatever they want and become frustrated when everybody doesn’t just step aside and give it to them. They become angry with anyone who stands in their way. Such teaching fuels anger and frustration which leads to violence. Jesus calls us to love each other. If we all love each other, there will be a lot fewer shootings, stabbings, beatings, and overall violence.

The second tactic being used today is one I learned about very early in life. I had Polio at age two and was on crutches for several years. I was an easy target for bullies. They would attack me by stealing my lunch or kicking my crutches out from under me. When I complained, they said I started it. Their friends would lie and support what they said. All the other kids were afraid to speak up and tell what really happened, because they were afraid the bullies would attack them too. The teachers believed them since there were several of them and only one of me, so I got punished. We see this in the current Hamas war with Israel. The Hamas made a brutal attack on Israeli civilians and when Israel fought back to defend themselves, they claimed that Israel had attacked them first. The other Arab nations then rallied behind Hamas, and the media supported their claims and blamed the Israelis. Many nations are afraid to speak up in support of Israel because they are afraid the Arabs would cut off their oil supply or attack them. As a result, many people believe them, especially young people who have grown up hearing how Israel was attacking its neighbors, but never hear about how Hamas had attacked them first. Unfortunately, many people do not think things through. Any thinking person would realize that a small weak nation would not go around attacking its big strong neighbors, unless it had a serious death wish. There are many large powerful Arab nations surrounding Israel which is very small, only about the size of New Jersey. No nation in its right mind would attempt to attack it neighbors like that and hope to survive. Israel has survived continuous attacks by its neighbors because God has protected it. In the same way I could never understand why my teachers believed the bullies. I would be a fool to attack someone bigger and stronger than me when I couldn’t defend myself if they attacked back. If I attempted to attack them, they could just run away and I couldn’t chase them. In addition, Hamas has been open and vocal about its goal of destroying Israel and wipe it off the face of the earth. All Israel wants is to be left alone. Israel has even given up land to its neighbors in the hope of being left alone but its neighbors have continually broken the treaties and demanded more land. Hamas has clearly stated they will not stop until they have wiped Israel off the map.

Hamas is crying about all the civilian deaths in the Gaza strip and the fact is that they  are much higher than Israel’s deaths but you must look at the facts before passing judgement. Hamas attacked Israel without warning and specifically targeted civilians with no military objectives. Israel had to defend themselves. The only way to do that was to take out the rocket launchers that are firing the missiles. Hamas deliberated put the launchers in population areas so there would be civilian casualties if Israel tried to destroy them. Israel announced they were going to attack the launchers and ordered the civilians to leave the area. They gave them plenty of time to leave. That cost them the element of surprise and allowed Hamas to move or protect their launchers, but Israel did not want to risk the lives of Arab civilians. However, Hamas blocked all the roads and would not allow the civilians to leave so they could use them as human shields. Israel had no choice but to attack the rocket launchers or face a lot more of their own civilians being killed. The high death toll is not Israel’s fault. They did everything they could to prevent civilian deaths, but Hamas deliberately put the civilians in harms way so they could use them to gain sympathy.


Violence and Social Strife-3-E

Hamas launched a huge attack on Israel which was an act of pure evil. Families were killed in their homes, children were killed at a children’s event, women and children were kidnapped and many later killed for no other reason then to instill fear. It was totally unprovoked and served no military purpose. The attack on Israel was so terrible that President Biden actually had to condemn it. In the past he always praised Hamas for their unprovoked attacks and condemned Israel when they responded to defend themselves. He seems to feel that if he is generous toward Hamas that they will like him and accept peace. That is the same view they had of Hitler when he was attacking Europe. The nations felt that if they just humored him, he would settle down and be at peace. When you give in to a bully, it encourages him to be more bold and demand more. Hitler said he was going to take over the whole world. There is nothing you could give him to satisfy him because he wanted it all. He would not be satisfied with just a couple countries. Hamas has said they are going to wipe Israel off  the map. There is nothing you can give them to satisfy them. They want to destroy all of Israel. They aren’t going to be happy until Israel is gone. Israel is just a small speck compared to the huge Arab controlled world. It doesn’t stand a chance by itself. Hamas will not stop until the world makes it clear that they stand behind Israel and will help defend it.



Violence and Social Strife-D-O

It really made no difference whether the police officer in Minnesota was guilty or not because the verdict was already determined before the trial started. Maxine Waters called for riots in the streets if the officers were cleared so the jury knew their only choice was to convict them or face more rioting. The officers never had a chance for a fair trial. We have to decide whether we want a country ruled by law and justice or one ruled by mob rule. After the verdict, new rioting broke out even though the officers were convicted and leading Democrats began calling for defunding the police. Of course cities ruled by Democrats realized they could not eliminate the police or there would not be anyone to keep order so they slashed the police budgets. Then they faced the question of where to make cuts. Since the conflict between police and Black subjects usually occurred in  Black areas, they reduced the police patrols in Black areas to reduce the chance of conflict. Since criminals no longer had to worry about police, they went on a field day and crime in Black areas exploded. Of course the victims in the Black areas were mostly Black so Black people suffered the most. Liberals just don’t seem to be able to foresee the consequences of their actions.

Democrats say they want to reduce mass incarceration. One way they are trying to do it is by reducing penalties for crimes. They have been dropping some minor crimes and no longer consider them crimes and reducing sentences for other crimes. In addition, they are pushing to eliminate bail so a criminal can be released without bail and still be expected to show up for his trial. That is the purpose of bail, to guarantee he will show up. All these things have not reduced the amount of people incarcerated. By letting minor criminals go with a slap on the wrist, they encourage them to commit more crimes. Punishment is supposed to make it so they don’t gain from breaking the law. When punishment is weak, they can commit the crime and put up with a little inconvenience before going out and committing more crimes. Crime has continued to rise in areas where laws are not enforced.



Violence and Social Strife-E-I

Democrat politicians say they want to make society more equitable and lessen discrimination but show that they have more interest in maintaining division then in creating equality. They fought to protect slavery until forced to abolish it, then they prevented Blacks from getting equal opportunity through the Jim Crow laws. When forced to abandon the laws, they turned to promoting privileges for Blacks. They pushed affirmative action with requirements that Blacks be hired equal to their proportion in the population, whether there were enough qualified Blacks or not. While they say they want to make society more equitable, affirmative action provides special privileges for minorities at the expense of the Whites. While the quota system was important in combating racism in the 1960’s, most Whites have grown up with Blacks and got to where they did not pay much attention to race until liberals began highlighting incidents of Whites against Blacks and began stirring up racial strife. Quotas today hurt Blacks more than help them because it enables them to get positions they aren’t qualified for setting them up for failure and discourages them from seeking to qualify for the positions if they can get them without working for them. Why get a college degree to qualify for a position if you can get the position without going to college. It also creates anger against Blacks who get positions they don’t qualify for in Whites who qualify for them, but are passed over. While affirmative action brought Blacks and Whites together so they could get to know each other and helped break down stereotypes, it also was forced and resulted in increased tension. Conservatives have done far more in reducing racism by building bridges between Blacks and Whites through joint efforts to combat the problems that result in broken families, which has helped reduce crime among Blacks. Whenever one group gets privileges over another, whether Blacks or Whites, it creates tension and ill-will. We must seek to create a society where all are equal and no one gets special privileges. That will come by working together, not by fighting each other.



Violence-Gun Control-4-S

29 Mar

Liberals are again calling for gun control but they ignore their own guilt. They continue to push the narrative that we need to kill babies that get in our way. Although they claim they are just blobs  of tissue and not really babies, ultrasounds show that it really is a baby and we can now detect a heartbeat and even brain waves within a few weeks of conception, so we have plenty of evidence that it is a baby from very shortly after birth. Now they are pushing for freedom to kill them even after birth. Once you proclaim the right to kill someone that gets in your way, it is only a matter of defining who is getting in your way. Some say it is those who are elderly, critically sick or injured, or mentally ill, while others say it is those who feel life is no longer worth living. Liberals have spent fifty years teaching that life only has value when it benefits you and when it doesn’t, it is alright to eliminate it. If you say something long enough and often enough, people begin to believe it. In addition, many people feel that if something is legal, it must be alright. During the last fifty years, abortion was technically legal. It wasn’t really legal but the courts felt they could not protect the baby because it could not be proven to be a person. That allowed abortion to flourish. As  it flourished, a growing number of people have begun viewing it as acceptable. In addition, liberal politicians turn a blind eye to violence against conservatives and those who oppose violence, reenforcing the idea that violence is acceptable if someone gets in your way. You can outlaw abortion, but you will not stop it or the increasing violence until you convince people that killing is wrong. That is not going to occur overnight. We have the laws we need to stop abortion and violence, but the laws need to be enforced or they do no good. In addition, we need to stand up and be vocal in defense of those who cannot defend themselves.
