We all have fond memories from our childhood of our favorite games. I can recall getting cap guns and skates — you know, with the metal key — and playing cops and robbers, or cowboys and Indians. We also would hang out all day playing baseball, two-hand touch football, and basketball. The ol’ folks would watch us play, and they would cheer us on. We didn’t have gangs, but we organized ourselves into sports teams based upon our street, or neighborhood.
However, over in Gaza Strip, they have a different interpretation of “children’s games.”
As reported by Itamar Marcus and the crew at Palestinian Media Watch:
“Official [PA] Government Spokesman Yusuf Al-Mahmoud… said: ‘The occupation’s escalation, to which the Gaza Strip – which is under siege – has been witness in recent hours, constitutes part of the occupation government’s policy towards our residents and the heroic members of our people…He added: ‘The occupation is striving to create equivalence in which there is a parallel between the newest and most lethal fighter jets and a children’s game such as kites (i.e., flaming arson-kites) used by peaceful protestersas one of the means of protest against the siege and the occupation.'” [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 22, 2018]
Yes, it appears that the new “game” in the Islamic terrorist group, the Hamas-occupied territory of the Gaza Strip, is kite flying — flaming arson kite flying. How interesting that we have heard nothing about this here in America. Perhaps someone should inform socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about this, especially since she admits to not knowing too much about foreign policy.
What I truly find perplexing is how we have not heard any ranting from the environmental groups, considering the damage being caused. There have been 11km of natural reserves, and 8.8km of natural forests that have been destroyed because of the 500 fires that have been started by this “children’s game.”
Where are all the bird lovers, and animal rights groups, knowing that these Islamic jihadists are using falcons, which I find offensive, being from Atlanta. They are attaching a flaming bomb to their wings, and turning the innocent bird into an incendiary weapon.
Now, of course, if you were to refer to these demonic, savage Islamic jihadists as “animals” you would certain draw the ire of the progressive socialist left, and all the other anti-Semites. As Nancy Pelosi said, perhaps they have a “spark of divinity” within them, like MS-13.
The actions of these Hamas-supported jihadists are despicable. The lack of condemnation from the West for their actions is disgusting. However, it just goes to evidence, once again, that the hypocrisy of these leftist environmental and animal rights groups is more politicized than anything else. Just imagine if the shoe were on the other foot and incendiary devices, bombs, were being implemented to destroy natural reserves and forests in the Gaza Strip — oh yes, you know what would be happening.
Children should be in school getting a quality education, preparing them to be productive members of society. The problem is that islamo-fascism embraces the idea that being productive is all about killing others. That is why we should all be unified in hating them, and defeating them.
