It’s easy to be outraged at Israel’s outlandish, criminal and immoral behavior. Israel murdered a bunch of peace activists on the high seas with total disregard for international and maritime law. Israel runs the biggest prison camp in the world. Israel is an apartheid state. The current government of Israel is a global pariah.
What’s not to be outraged about?
But what I want to know is where is the outrage against the United States of America who makes Israel look like Utopia?
The United States wages immoral, illegal and irresponsible war daily. Kills more innocent people daily than Netanyahoo could ever wet-dream about. American arrogance daily makes Israeli arrogance look like the humility of Mr. Rogers. The United States murders by video-game remote control. The United States uses the WMD of depleted uranium to maim, deform and destroy humans and the bio-sphere. The United States uses assassination and terror against its perceived enemies who are mostly freedom fighters, women and children. The United States continues the Bush doctrine of all war, all the time, everywhere. The United States has hundreds and hundreds of military bases in more than a hundred and thirty countries to protect the profits of Bankers, Big Oil, Merchants of Militarism and Pirates of Disaster Capitalism.
Where is the outrage?
The United States wages genocide against people of color all over the world who slave in sweat shops of Western Consumerism and sells weapons to client despots to keep the slaves in check when they are tired of their servitude. The United States destroys the hopes and dreams of billions of people around the world daily in the name of ‘national interest.’ It is the United States who daily directly and indirectly oppresses the aspirations of people to pursue their Happiness through Life and Liberty. It is the United States who leads by example at home with the largest gap between rich an poor in the world right here in the good ol’ US of A.
It is the United States government which is corrupted beyond repair and is nothing more than a bribe factory where the sausage of legislation is poisoned with corporatist graft and fat-cat greed. It is the United States government who sells out ‘the people’ to the indentured servitude of private banking cartels and cuts social services, education, health care and infrastructure in the name of ‘fiscal responsibility.’
Where is the outrage?
So, sure, to me Israel is a piece of crap nation-state.
But the crap of the abomination to our founding ideals called the United States makes Israel smell like rose-water.
Let’s take the beam out of our own eye of American arrogance before we preach the morals of Truth, Justice and the American Way to the rest of the world which we have spent a century raping and pillaging.
Where is the outrage against the greatest purveyor of terror and tyranny in the world?
