Anguish & Shame

The News: Another Israeli "precision bomb" supposedly "targetted" at combatants only, again managed to slaughter more civilians and more children, this time the daughters of Izz el-Deen Aboul Aish a gynecologist who had worked in one of Israel's main hospitals before he was imprisoned without leave in the Gaza Ghetto pursuant to the Israeli imposed "blockade". In an audio-cast that will not be shown on the AIPAC and Zionist controlled US media, Israeli television broadcast Aboul Aish's desperate cries for help and anguished utterances of grief,

"My girls were sitting at home planning their futures, talking, then suddenly they are being shelled," he said in a voice shaking with emotion. "I want to know why they were killed, who gave the order?"

The Note: The doctor's cries are almost unbearable to listen to. But equally of note is the look of unease, disquiet and shame that slowly overcomes the Israeli broadcaster. This is what it looks like when conscience makes contact with synderesis. It is more than we will see on U.S. television, whose anchor-people float adrift on a dead sea of moral indifference masquerading under the rubric of "news neutrality". They would do well to remember Dante's observation that between heaven and hell lies the land of the neutrals despised equally by those above and those below. And we would do well to remember that although these anguished cries are the direct result of Israeli barbarism, they are also the result of the psychotic cunning of the American Jewish establishment and the prostituted cowardice that pervades Congress. We would do well to remember, that all vintage is always trampled out eventually.
