Israel Causing Civilian Casualties In Lebanon: Dead Muslims In Iraq Don't CountTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
While the liberal American press and cable media (along with the usual spattering of Muslim groups in the U.S.), as well as the anti-Israeli foreign media, all focus and bring great attention to the number of civilians killed in Lebanon from the Israeli actions against Hezbollah, a number now exceeding 220 as of this evening, not one damned word of outrage is expressed (including those same Muslims screaming about the civilian deaths in Lebanon) over the huge number of Muslims killed by Muslims in Iraq.
Since the start of May, attacks by Sunni Arab and Shiite Muslims have claimed the lives of more than 6,000 Iraqi civilians, according to a United Nations study and Iraqi police reports. And the wholesale slaughter of Muslims by Muslims in Iraq alone continues to grow exponentially.
I think I'm way over hearing or even caring about civilian casualties brought on by the West in defense of freedom, democracy, and survival from Islamic terrorism. Please don't bore me with casualty numbers for civilian deaths resulting from the Israeli efforts to survive without constant terrorism, or civilian deaths by American forces in Iraq. Tell me about these matters when Muslims themselves stop killing the s--t out of each other in Iraq and elsewhere. Tell me about collateral damage from the forces of trully democratic countries when Muslims stop blowing up bus loads of their fellow Muslims on purpose, tell me about collateral damage from the forces of trully democratic countries when Muslims stop strapping suicide belts on children to go blow up other children's parents, tell me about collateral damage from the forces of trully democratic countries when Muslims stop blowing up each other's places of worship in the name of Allah, tell me about Western-caused collateral damage when Muslims start loving their children as much as they hate everyone elses!!!
Meanwhile, as Chad at In The Bullpen says, Israeli ground forces are now in Lebanon.
