The Palestine Double Standards

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Gaza and Hamas, Israel, Muslim, News, Palestine, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 26/07/2014 by floroy1942

Is there anyone out there who does not believe that Hamas are ‘pulling the wool over the eyes of the world’ and the Press is one-sided in it’s reporting of the struggle in Palestine? Almost every day we see photos, and film clips on TV, of the wounded and dead in the conflict, and the Press love to put great emphasis on killed and wounded children in Gaza.

Let me make it clear I am neither an Israeli nor a sympathizer, but I do believe in justice and truth. These stories and pictures are massively distorting the Palestinian picture which is exactly what Hamas wants.

THIS IS WHAT THE PRESS SHOW US ALMOST DAILY BECAUSE IT GET’S PEOPLE’S ATTENTION

Can You Spot The Difference?

Hamas want you to feel sorry for the poor victims of Israeli aggression and put all the blame for it on the Israeli’s. Looking at the second set of pictures, can you really be sure what Hamas says is accurate? For years they have been indoctrinating their children to fight Israel. The truth is here!

Oh How Blind Are Those That Cannot See!

Posted in Britain, Children, Equality, Gaza and Hamas, Human Rights, Israel, Netanyahu, News, Palestine, United Nations with tags , , , , on 21/07/2014 by floroy1942

With such a title I could be writing about almost anything, but today I concern myself with the farce that is the current Gaza conflict. I did write about this recently but now the pace has stepped up to bordering the ridiculous. I say this because there are many, like those causing the recent riots in Paris, who just cannot see the wood for the trees as they saying goes.

Paris Riots In Support Of Palestine

Paris Riots In Support Of Palestine

Once again the masses are wailing about all those killed in Gaza with the news programmes emphasising the number of civilians, and especially children, who are killed by Israeli gunfire. Scant mention of the Israeli casualties, and after this hypocrisy we have now had two large demonstrations on the streets of Paris that turned into riots, protesting at the Gaza casualties.

As you would expect, all the hatred is being directed at the Israeli Army and government for their “brutal” slaughter of ‘innocent’ Palestinian civilians. To these small-minded people Israel should ignore the more than a thousand rockets that have been fired at Israeli cities and towns by Hamas and continue life as normal.

Deadly Hit On Sderot Israel

Deadly Hit On Sderot Israel

To all those deaf, dumb and blind people who demonstrated in Paris, let me ask one question: What would you expect your government to do, if say Germany started raining rockets down on Paris and its suburbs? Oh that’s alright, lets just choose to ignore them! Yea right! Pull the other leg its got bells on! Everyone would be up in arms screaming for retaliation. So that means its alright for you to retaliate but not Israel?

There is one simple way for Hamas to stop the Israeli offensive, and that is: Stop firing rockets at Israeli cities and towns! 

Palestinian Casualty

Palestinian Casualty

It is obvious that Hamas has no intention of doing this because they are getting exactly what they want from those among us who do not have the capacity to think straight – anti-Israeli rhetoric at the mounting civilian casualties! The more civilians killed the more it plays into their hands, for they get the sympathy while Israel gets all the hatred. Its an old story that has been repeated several times during the last two decades. Only when they run out of rockets will they be happy to negotiate a ceasefire. Until that time the civilian casualties among their own people are a huge propaganda victory for them.

Self Explanatory.

Self Explanatory.

Why else do you think they always fire their rockets from inside built-up areas and not the open countryside? They know that Israel can pinpoint the firing location and will come in with helicopters and or artillery to sanitize the area. That way they get the maximum number of civilian casualties and can blame the heartless Israeli regime.

Hamas even had the gall to attempt a humanitarian ceasefire to which the Israeli’s agreed, and then they promptly broke it by firing more rockets! Their callous attempt to put the blame on Israel for this is beneath contempt, but not many people picked up on it, and henceforth, more hatred against Israel.

The Israeli government dropped leaflets to the Palestinian people warning them to vacate the areas of the city they were going to bombard in an effort to reduce casualties but that did not suit Hamas. They wanted as many casualties as possible to make it look good in the world’s news programmes so they ordered the people to stay, knowing what the Israeli Army was planning. So don’t play into the hands of Hamas and blindly blame the Israeli’s.

Hamas Human Shield

Hamas Human Shield

One thing the simple-minded among us have to understand is that Hamas are past masters at gaining the sympathy of the world when civilians are killed. So far as Hamas are concerned, they don’t give a damn for all the Palestinians killed, the more the merrier because it strengthens their cause. It was Hamas who started using human shields a decade ago, not Israel.

The Hamas leader has demanded the release of terrorist prisoners and an end to the Israeli blockade of their borders, but regarding the blockade, you have to go back a few years to understand why this is in place.

Hamas Smuggling Tunnel

Hamas Smuggling Tunnel

It is there for one reason only, to stop the flow of arms into Gaza by Hamas. Before the blockade all sorts of arms and ammunition were flowing into Gaza at a steady rate, but since the blockade the only method open to them is the smuggling tunnels, of which there are many. For Israel to once again open the borders would mean unfettered access by Hamas to all the arms and ammunition they need, plus of course the rockets supplied by Iran.

All this being said, the Palestinian people can end this themselves by demanding a change of government. Hamas was after all a terrorist organization when they were voted in. If the people of Gaza want peace then they should demand elections and remove these terrorists who pose as a government. It is up to the people to demand a halt to all military actions in Gaza and come to the negotiating table without an AK47 in their hands. Only in this way will Gaza be free of war.

Many of you may think that I am either an Israeli or at least sympathize with them, well you couldn’t be more wrong. I categorically do not.

Israel Growth Over The Years

Israel Growth Over The Years

On the Israeli side they have made a huge mistake by building on Palestinian land that is not rightfully theirs. Should this continue the war will never end. Israel must pull back to the lines drawn by the United Nations in 1967 and hand over the land they stole. Only then can peace be attained. Will it ever happen? Not in my lifetime!

Blair’s Education Legacy Just Got Comical

Posted in Britain, Children, England, English Schools, Insanity, News, Parenting, Primary Education, Teens, UK with tags , , , , on 14/07/2014 by floroy1942
Yes We Know!  Education, Education, Education!

Yes We Know!
Education, Education, Education!

Ever since Tony Blair uttered the words “Education, Education, Education” and then proceeded to ‘dumb-down’ exam pass levels to make his League Tables look good, intelligent people have been waiting for the fallout. Well now sadly it’s here, and hilarious.

The Voice Of Business

The Voice Of Business

Today, employers are saying that our school leavers are unemployable because of their low education standards and are looking to immigrants to fill jobs requiring a reasonable standard. It is well known that many of today’s youth cannot read or write properly once they leave school, and of course teachers themselves have come under fire for failing children with their poor performance.

Well, I came across some snippets that just about put all this in perspective. Times Higher Education Magazine pointed out some of the amazing bloopers made by college students during exams. A lecturer from the University of Ulster sent in this answer from a student on the Earth’s ozone layer, and I quote: “the hole in the ozone layer was caused by assholes“. As the lecturer pointed out, he may have meant aerosols!

Another student answered a question on vehicle emissions by saying:  “in future all cars [will] be fitted with Catholic converters“.

A senior lecturer in psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University got this reply to a question in an exam: “Octopuses are intelligent because they have been found to be able to predict the winners of football matches during the World Cup.” This is a reference to Paul the Octopus who ‘predicted’ winners during the 2010 World Cup.

Even on the subject of the Second World War some youngsters get a bit tied up. One wrote in a history exam at the University of Hertfordshire: “Hitler’s role in the Second World War is often overlooked.

All of the above are from university students, but at the other end of the education scale things are not much better. Here are some examples from the lower end of education since Tony’s interference.

 

Hmm! I’ll have to think about that!

Maths

I thought all angels were cute!

Geography

So that’s where lap dancers come from!

Geography

The doctor has a cure for that!

History

So that’s why the Earth has no balls!

History 2

I hope she tasted good!

Science

They would be handy around the house if they could get through the door.

Religious Studies

Must be due to poor building techniques!

I am sure there are more humorous examples out there somewhere, but you have to admit. these are hilarious.

Considering that the first selection came from University students, it makes you wonder at the effectiveness of our education system.

We used to have a system that was the envy of the world, but sadly, after Tony Blair’s tinkering, and the loss of knowledgeable and effective teachers, it seems we have lost our way.

As you may expect, the ones that will suffer the most are the current generation of our youth, and their children. Many could well be doomed to low paid menial work because they do not have the knowledge or skills to get higher. Thanks Tony!

A sad indication of our times.

The Hypocrisy of The Israel/Hamas Conflict

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, European Union, Gaza and Hamas, Iran, Israel, News, Religion, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 13/07/2014 by floroy1942
Hamas Rocket Attack

Hamas Rocket Attack

Once again we see the complete hypocrisy of the Press when it comes to fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. It’s really the same old story of Hamas firing rockets into Israel and then the Israeli’s fight back, but all we hear in the news and tabloids is “Those Poor Palestinians”.

As usual the papers and news reports are all about the number of Palestinian civilians especially children, killed or wounded with a one-line mention of the Israeli casualties. There have not been many because Hamas couldn’t hit a bull in the fanny with a bag of rice as Frank Sinatra once said. I even saw one report greatly emphasizing that a disabled Palestinian child had been killed in an Israeli attack – huge emphasis on disabled!

Typical biased reporting:

What Would YOU Do?

What Would YOU Do?

It is high time the Press in general got the point that Hamas start these conflicts to deliberately provoke the retaliation that inevitably follows from Israel. It is part of their tactic to gain headlines, and most of all, sympathy from the simple-minded among us, of which there are many.

The truth is, if they did not fire the rockets, Israel would have no reason to attack them. This is part of the propaganda war that has been going on for decades in the Middle East. Hamas don’t care a fig for the number of their citizens who get killed in these spats because they are getting what they want: World Sympathy!

Rocket ThreatYou can bet your life Hamas will call for a ceasefire very soon, but not for the reasons you suppose. It will be because they have used up their entire stock of rockets and need to rearm. Once again rockets will be smuggled into Gaza by way of the tunnels from Egyptian territory, and when they have sufficient, it will start all over again. This scenario has been repeated more than a dozen times over the last decade, but still many outsiders, including the Press, are too dumb to see it.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee people, your sympathy for Hamas is playing right into their hands. So far as the Palestinian people are concerned, they voted in the terrorist Hamas to govern them and they are the ones who can get them out. They could have put an end to all this unnecessary suffering by demanding an election for a new government.

Israel's Iron Dome Protection.

Israel’s Iron Dome Protection.

Hamas is not willing to enter into negotiations for peace unless they can carry their guns to the table. They want to destroy Israel and return Palestine back to its pre-1948 borders. This will never happen, but their continued fight against Israel does get them money, aid and arms from sympathetic states like Iran.

It is clear that neither America, Britain, Europe or the United Nations can stop the bloodshed until Hamas is willing to negotiate.

So long as a terrorist organization like Hamas controls Gaza there is no hope of peace between the Palestinians and Israel, and you can take that to the bank! Many are dismayed at the Israeli attacks against these people, but look at it this way, if you kept getting bitten by a mosquito would leave it alone or take a swipe at it? I believe the answer lies in the latter!

As a final note, let me say that I am not Israeli, and I have no preference for either side in this dispute. I just think we need some balanced reporting on such subjects.

It’s time for a bit of common sense on this issue!

Gay Cake Anyone?

Posted in Britain, Christianity, David Cameron, Equality, European Union, Gays, Human Rights, Justice, News, Religion with tags , , , , on 09/07/2014 by floroy1942

Christian views, this time in Northern Ireland, are once again coming under fire from the ‘gay’ community, and all because of a cake of all things. As a Christian myself I find these consistent attacks on anyone with religious beliefs deplorable, but it seems the homosexuals among us are still determined to hammer home their message that they must be accepted as ‘normal’.

Daniel McArther

Daniel McArthur

It is disgraceful that these people can run roughshod over anyone with religious beliefs, and the Law, such as it is, sides with these people every time. The interesting part is that ‘Gay’ marriage is still not legal in Northern Ireland. Thanks goodness, at least the government there have more sense than our bent politicians!

According the reports, a civic event was planned in Bangor Castle Town Hall, County Down, to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. The gay rights activists ordered a special cake from Ashers Baking Company in County Antrim in Ireland, but on seeing that it promoted homosexuality the company turned down the order and refunded the client.

Queer CakeIt would seem the cake was to have a picture of Bert and Ernie, two Sesame Street puppets, along with a logo from the Belfast-based campaign group called “Queerspace”. Due to its homosexual reference the bakery turned down the order because it went against their Christian values.

This refusal got the homosexual community in a ‘tizzwoz’ and they contacted the Equality Commission who have written to the company with a threat of legal action.  So once again the Christian Faith is coming under attack by this bunch of perverts, and you can guess what the outcome will be – again!

Peter and HazelMary Bull Who Lost Everything

Peter and HazelMary Bull Who Lost Everything

We have already seen the total destruction of the livelihood of two devout Christians who would not allow two homosexuals to share a room in their hotel. I refer of course to the case of Peter and HazelMary Bull who turned down a homosexual couple because their policy was not to allow any unmarried guests to share a room. The resultant court case against them completely ruined their lives and left them penniless when they lost their business.

Yet another travesty:

Of the current case, the firm’s 24-year-old general manager, Daniel McArthur, said marriage in Northern Ireland is “still defined as being a union between one man and one woman and said his company was taking a stand”. He added in an on-line statement that “The directors and myself looked at it and considered it and thought that this order was at odds with our beliefs. It certainly was at odds with what the Bible teaches, and on the following Monday we rang the customer to let him know that we couldn’t take his order.”

The company has now consulted with the Christian Institute for advice on how to deal with the case. They have in turn said they will give whatever legal assistance is required.

Councillor Andrew Muir

Alliance Councillor Andrew Muir – who hosted the civic event is reported as saying: “Businesses should not be able to pick and choose who they serve. There would not be any debate if the cake had depicted an anti-racism or anti-ageism slogan, nor should it require intervention from the Equality Commission for this cake for Anti-Homophobia Day. It is ridiculous for this bakery to suggest that they would have to endorse the campaign.”

Gay Rights Promoter Gavin Boyd

Gay Rights Promoter Gavin Boyd

Gavin Boyd, a Rainbow Project gay rights campaigner said on BBC Radio Ulster: “It is because of sexual orientation that the company decided not to print this. The law is really clear. You cannot pick and choose which sides of the law apply to you. If you are a company that is trading out there in the market place and someone comes to you, you can’t pick and choose whether or not to fulfil that order based on their sexual orientation. I would encourage companies to make business decisions that would be in the best interests of the profit margins of the companies.”

My question to that is: Why not if it goes against your Christian beliefs? Are the basic Christian values of morality, love, kindness and respect so outdated that they no longer apply in our modern world? Having said that, I know they mean nothing to many in society these days but that does not mean a bunch of perverts should be able to run roughshod over the teachings in the  Bible for their own sordid ends.

Colin Hart

Colin Hart

The Christian Institute’s director, Colin Hart, said of the case: “The Government repeatedly failed to listen to members of the public, lawyers, constitutional experts even its own MPs when they called for safeguards to protect those who back traditional marriage, whether at work or in business. All the McArthurs’ want is to run their bakery according to their Christian beliefs. There won’t be many situations where they need to turn down an order but this is obviously one of them. No-one should be forced to use their creative skills to promote a cause which goes against their consciences. Imbalanced equality laws are making it increasingly hard for people, especially Christians.”

Because of all these Equality and Human Rights laws we have reached a stage where Christians have no rights at all, and their beliefs are being trampled on at will by any pervert who does not get his own way! British companies are being forced to accept ‘gays’ whether they want to or not or run the risk of ending up in court in a trial in which the Judge will always find for the depraved. This is not Justice in any shape or form but a more ‘like it or lump it’ approach.

I once thought Great Britain to be a Christian country but that is no longer so, despite what Cameron says. The Christian faith is being trampled in the dust by these perverts who see their disgusting activities comparable to that of normal people. The sad thing is, the government is too weak-willed to see what is happening and do something about it.

The Slow Death Of Christianity And Its Values In Britain.

The Slow Death Of Christianity And Its Values In Britain.

Time after time such cases have been brought before the courts, and in every one the judgement goes against Christianity. The lives of good honest Christians are being totally ruined by these perverts, who demand they be accepted as being the same as everyone else while practicing their vile perverted habit. It would seem that to be a devout Christian in Britain today is more like a punishment rather than the uplifting experience it once was.

Christian Britain - Well, At Least There Are A Few Of Us Left!

Christian Britain – Well, At Least There Are A Few Of Us Left!

So long as these ridiculous laws are in place, or at least not administered properly, we are on an express train to hell! If this keeps up, this country will no longer be referred to as Great Britain but will become Great Britanal! (Work it out).

May the Almighty save us from these anal monsters!

The Veil Controversy

Posted in Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, England, European Union, Human Rights, Muslim, News, Religion, UK with tags , , , , on 01/07/2014 by floroy1942

Britain’s government has never been able to solve the problem of Muslim women wearing full-face veils (Niqab) since the controversy began, mainly because we are supposedly hamstrung by the Human Rights and Religious Freedom Laws from Brussels. The big question on everyone’s mind should now be: Why has France been able to pass this law and not Great Britain?

French Muslim Reaction To Ban

French Muslim Reaction To Ban

It has been revealed today that the European Court of Human Rights (CHR) has upheld France’s right to impose a veil ban so our government can no longer use that as an excuse.

In the past we have had cases where Muslim’s charged with an offence have refused to lower their veil in a court of law because of their religion. The problem in one case was eventually solved by the defendant being taken to a private room and identified by another female, but the veil remained in place throughout the trial.

This sort of farce should not be allowed to continue, and Britain must follow France’s example and ban them in all public areas. The above mentioned case against the veil ban was brought by a 24-year-old French woman, who argued that the ban on wearing the veil in public violated her freedom of religion and expression. Her case was thrown out by the court.

The Infamous Muslim Niqab

The Infamous Muslim Niqab

France has about 5 million Muslims and the ban was most unpopular when brought in by Nicholas Sarkozy. But this recent court decision has clearly shown that Muslims can no longer rely on the CHR to get their way, and I must add, about time too!

It is way past time the ban was enforced here with a fine for wearing one in public and a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ rule that sends consistent offenders to jail for three months. The only other answer is: If you can’t live without the veil, move to a Muslim country!

This whole episode indicates that there is nothing to stop the Cameron government from imposing the same ban here in Britain. I do however fear that this will not happen, for the simple reason Cameron is going to need every vote he can get at the next election, and if he bans the veil he will surely lose all the Muslim votes.

I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of modern politicians who do not do what is right for the country and its people because they may lose a few votes. It is time they all stepped up to the wire and did what is right for the majority of our citizens, like stopping immigration, kicking out the undesirables, stamping on the benefit cheats and concentrate on getting everyone into work.

The Streets Of Britain

The Streets Of Britain

For far too long this country has suffered at the hands of politicians who are looking out for themselves and to hell with what the people want. If some of the actions they take go against the ‘Rules’ passed down from high and mighty Brussels then tell them to ‘go suck an egg’ (and I kept that polite).

This country needs more politicians with backbone like Margaret Thatcher. Does anyone for one minute think she would have allowed things to get into this state with European Laws? Not on yer life!

May the only veil you see be that of a bride!

Roy.
