If I’m in the mood for some relatively violent entertainment, I can watch Broncos game films (until the Holy Ellipsoid Orb returns). For even more violence, I can turn on the fights, where sometimes a hockey game breaks out. Or for the most violence of all, there are children’s cartoons on network TV. But fans of Butcher Ben Netanyahu get to enjoy a front rows seat where they can cheer the rain of Israeli bombs killing Palestinian children.
As the sun begins to sink over the Mediterranean, groups of Israelis gather each evening on hilltops close to the Gaza border to cheer, whoop and whistle as bombs rain down on people in a warzone hell a few miles away.
Old sofas, garden chairs, battered car seats and upturned crates provide seating for the spectators. On one hilltop, a swing has been attached to the branches of a pine tree, allowing its occupant to sway gently in the breeze. Some bring bottles of beer or soft drinks and snacks.
On Saturday, a group of men huddle around a shisha pipe. Nearly all hold up smartphones to record the explosions or to pose grinning, perhaps with thumbs up, for selfies against a backdrop of black smoke.

I fully agree with him. Furthermore, unequivocal US support for Israel, out of the fear of losing the Jewish vote, threatens our own national security. When the UN agrees to sanction Israel, but can do nothing because the US uses our Security Council veto to prevent it, that creates enemies around the world. Instead, we’ needs to cut off Butcher Ben’s supplies of money and weapons until such time as he becomes willing to stop the slaughter and negotiate in good faith. Otherwise, I can guarantee you that Americans will die at the hands of family members or sympathizers of these murdered children, who are seeking revenge against Israel’s enablers.
