Britain Sends Israel A MessageDecember 15, 2009 at 6:42 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
War has consequences, and justly so. Britain should not cower to the demands of Israel to remove this possibility. Any political leader around the world should be held accountable by someone when that political leader’s actions and decisions leads to the deaths of thousands if not tens or hundreds of thousands of people. If the citizens of the nation which that particular politician led will not hold that leader accountable for those deaths, someone else should. That includes George W. Bush. That includes Barack Obama as well.
Israel does not get a free pass to kill Palestinians as they wish, nor likewise Palestinians to kill Israelis as they wish. America does not get a free pass to kill whoever they want as they wish, as no nation on this planet has that right. For such actions, a consequence must be in place, a sacrifice must be there.
If you show you cannot live peaceably with your neighbors in this world, you should live in a world then where your own life and your own freedom feels threatened.
