Andrew Bolt's Blog,17/5/18; ISRAEL is EVIL; Killing Gaza a documentary; Class war has been here since Eureka it's not "comiing"

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Israel’s blockade of Gaza—where trapped Palestinians for the past seven weeks have held nonviolent protests along the border fence with Israel, resulting in scores of dead and some 6,000 wounded by Israeli troops—is one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. Yet the horror that is Gaza, where 2 million people live under an Israeli siege without adequate food, housing, work, water and electricity, where the Israeli military routinely uses indiscriminate and disproportionate violence to wound and murder, and where almost no one can escape, is rarely documented. Max Blumenthal and Dan Cohen’s powerful new film, “Killing Gaza,” offers an unflinching and moving portrait of a people largely abandoned by the outside world, struggling to endure.
Starting Tuesday, May 15, “Killing Gaza” can be seen at Vimeo On Demand.
A movie by a Jewish Film Maker and Journalist made after 2014

Andrew Bolt the Israel apologist simply flips the coin offers nothing himself simply when turning Israel into the victim and asks having killed a child " Well what would you do ?" Wasn't that the Eichman defence? The judge had no trouble deciding.


 "Yes, Israel looks monstrous for shooting dead about 60 Palestinians who were threatening to tear down the fence along its border with Gaza." Bolt.

 Bolt the apologist poses the defence question of every war criminal when he says"well what would you do?" as Israel's defence. What give you the right to judge? If you have just murdered women and children innocent people who have just cause to complain about your illegal treatment of them for the past 70 years then that question doesn't absolve the right to judged. Palestinians have been killed imprisoned and harassed on a daily basis for 70 years you simply don't get to pose that question "well what would you do?" as if it only has an immediate context. The world has already judged Israel for illegal occupation of Palestinian land and Israel has ignored that judgement and has acted illegally ever since. Simply justifying every illegal action with we feel uncomfortable so we need to be a fascist state. 
 The fact is one crime doesn't justify a lifetime of repetitive crime or mitigate your actions in the eyes of the world. Why does Bolt seem to minimize reality 110+ people were killed which the Israelis claim were all forced or inspired by Hamas? Over 10,000 were injured, 4000 by live Israeli bullets. These are facts left out by Bolt 78 women, 203 children, Journalists with well signed Press vests, and medics with fluoro jackets none of which could be declared Hamas supporters. Bolt doesn't mention the "fun" Israeli snipers were videoed hitting targets half a kilometre away.
 Faced with an unarmed crowd unarmed because no shots were fired at any Israelis Bolt puts up photos of rocks flung from a distance but not the one of the Palestinian in a wheelchair who was shot. Does he show evidence that a fence was being breached or that snipers feared for their lives yet he talks of "fear" and Bolt asks what would you do?
 What you wouldn't do is order trained snipers to arbitrarily kill and wound people as the Israelis did?  You wouldn't order to aim at knees and elbows to incur the most damage possible the Israelis did? Wouldn't then blockade medical supplies from reaching hospitals so people couldn't be properly treated and limbs amputated instead the Israelis did? Could you possibly confuse women and children in the chaos from your high ground position Israelis did? They had the most advanced equipment money could buy and they had a choice but Bolt, ever the schoolboy debater flips the bullies position to the victim when he says "Your honour, I demand you tell me what you would do? and he claims that the accusing world that "Here is the question they won’t answer, in various permutations."
 Injured Israelis 0 Palestinians 10,000 plus 4000 by bullets with 110 killed these are the permutations, Mr Bolt, When people are faced with one of the worlds most advanced armies fully equipped to kill and have been imprisoned illegally by them since 1967. That land allotted them is illegally taken on a daily basis and people killed and imprisoned without trial Bolt doesn't ask why is this happening he asks why are they angry. Which is the greater moral threat guess the Germans answered that one too when they faced Jews wanting to escape the Ghettos or complaining. They knew what to do and were tried. The White South African government had to kill blacks because they too were faced with a moral dilemma that they were angry. The question isn't what would you do given the last 70 years of oppression. Bolt's asks every slave owners question while whipping his property. You address the question of equality and humanity and do everything in your power to make amends not for this action but for every action deemed illegal since 1967

Can Palestinians Be Killed by Israelis? Or Do They Only 'Die'?

Social media is outraged by the language Western media use to describe the peacefully protesting Palestinians shot in cold blood by Israeli snipers.


 Gaza: Israel's security relies on fair deal for Palestinians

Instead of blaming the Palestinian leadership, Malcolm Turnbull should show some moral spine and reprimand Israel for killing unarmed protesters. The Palestinians have lost nearly everything since the acquisition of their lands by Israel in 1948 and 1967. They still have no country and are under occupation and/or siege.

19mBolt's not endorsing Labour's right to represent the workers of Australia he's just expressing the fact that's what they will do. He's not suggesting it was Tony Abbott who was an idiot when he alone insisted on the Royal Commission into unions which were always going to be a risk and was a total failure. No unionist other than Craig Thomson was charged with the misuse of $13,000 petty cash.  Imagine a banker was caught misusing $3.5 million and wasn't charged. The Tasmanian branch of the LNP let their treasurer embezzle $50,000 and hid it allowing him to do the same in Victoria. Abbott even said when NSW MPs were caught taking money from developers illegally it was the fault of the law, not the MPs committing fraud. 
Yes, the courts discharged 2 union officials and Michaela Cash still calls crims and guilty. She doesn't know what but guilty because the CMFEU has in the past accrued so many fines.  But then Bankers have never had so many charges to face under an LNP government even when the banks were found to have committed over 200,000 offences totalling hundreds of millions of dollars repeating their actions so that it felt normal. Bolt claims they weren't systemic. Is he for real. He warns that a war now is coming when one has been waging since Keating lost to Howard one has existed for last 20 years and the LNP government changed all the rules for Australian workers to be represented. Who were determined to destroy bipartisan politics the unions and the rate passing of bills through negotiation but Howard and Abbott? They effectively brought this nation to a social standstill.
Bolt even admitted that the workers of Australia haven't had a fair share of the increased  GDP not even keeping up with inflation like the ABC they have been under attack. But that was apparently good because it trimmed the fat and gives it to business which was already on a high sugar diet of an average profit of 20% + coupled with taxes they just saw fit not to pay. 
 Let's face it the top 10 Executives of AMP's salaries have not been charged and have cut their next 6monyhs pay by 25% from the $110 mill they were getting. Why would that be that banks execs and directors are rarely charged and Unions are constantly under the threat of being charged and fined? Why because the LNP ensured it that way allowing Bolt and Cash say the fines are evidence of their criminal activity. When banks are fined or even the execs are fined they don't pay those fines the shareholders and clients do. Those they have been ripped off do. A class war isn't " coming" it's been here since Eureka.
