Jeremy Corbyn – Read these 10 most pathetic criticisms of Israel’s actions on the Gaza border

(Make sure to subscribe to the IsraelB newsletter for the latest happening in our community)

Many of us were both shocked when reading Jeremy Corbyn’s Facebook status on yesterday’s violence down South on the Gaza border.

Firstly, I want to make clear, obviously we all feel the pain of seeing innocent civilians being injured and killed. But, Israel has no choice but to defend her borders and soldiers against terror attacks.

If you actually find out what happened, you will see a very different picture from that painted by the Western press and even some leaders.

What Corbyn wrote on his Facebook status reflects how ignorant and detached he and others are from what is actually going on here.

TOP TEN STUPIDEST CRITICISMS OF ISRAEL’S ACTIONS ON THE GAZA BORDER

1) People have a right to peacefully protest! (Indeed they do. But there are plenty of people here who are taking butcher knives and firebombs and guns to storm the border and kill and kidnap Israeli civilians.)
2) There is no evidence of that! (Yes there is. There are Arabic Facebook pages and interviews and photos.)
3) But it’s not all the Gazans who are doing that! (Right. And it’s not all the Gazans who are being shot!)
4) Israel is just trying to kill as many Gazans as possible! (If it was, there would be carnage like in Syria, which probably doesn’t particularly upset you. Israel is trying to avoid killing Gazans – aside from anything else, it is politically very damaging.)
5) Israel should just use tear gas! (They have, but it often doesn’t work, such as when it’s windy, or when the Gazans have gas masks and bury the canisters.)
6) Israel should only use rubber bullets! (They often can’t, because these only work at short range.)
7) Israel should just arrest them! (If soldiers went up to the crowds to do that, there would be a bloodbath.)
8) Israel is so technologically advanced, there must be a way to stop them without shooting them! (No army in the world has yet found a way to repel armed attackers without ever using bullets)
9) It’s so disproportionate – so many Gazans wounded or killed, and no Israelis! (So what?! When you are repelling an armed invasion, there is no reason to let them kill more of you before continuing to stop them!)

And the Top Stupidest Argument is…:
10) The Palestinians have legitimate grievances! (Even if this were true – what, so Israel should just let them storm the border and butcher its civilians?!)

May peace and harmony return to our borders and region,

Benjy.
