Last year: Obama Administration "appalled" by Israel's "disgraceful shelling" in Gaza
Today: U.S. Airstrike Kills 19 at Doctors Without Borders Hospital in Afghanistan

Who is appalled today? Where is the condemnation? Where are the accusations of "targeting civilians?" Where ar the cries of disproportionality (remember no one from Syria has attacked the US).

I am sick of the hypocrites!





Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan bombed, at least 19 dead in blast linked to U.S. airstrike: officials


At least 19 people, including nine Doctors Without Borders staffers and three child patients, were killed Saturday morning in an airstrike on an Afghan hospital.


American officials confirmed a U.S. attack on war-torn Kunduz “may have resulted in collateral damage to a nearby medical facility” and that the lethal attack was under investigation.


More than three dozen others were injured in the bombing that reduced the hospital to burning rubble about 2:10 a.m., and another 30 were reported missing.

President Obama's statement regarding today's bombing of the hospital.  (From the White House FB page)


"On behalf of the American people, I extend my deepest condolences to the medical professionals and other civilians killed and injured in the tragic incident at a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz. The Department of Defense has launched a full investigation, and we will await the results of that inquiry before making a definitive judgment as to the circumstances of this tragedy. I have asked the Department of Defense to keep me apprised of the investigation and expect a full accounting of the facts and circumstances. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to all of the civilians affected by this incident, their families, and loved ones. We will continue to work closely with President Ghani, the Afghan government, and our international partners to support the Afghan National Defense and Security forces as they work to secure their country." —President Obama on the casualties in Kunduz

Yes in both cases civilians died. Which is sad.



However compareing Gaza with Afghanistan is a propaganda tool to defend Israel's immoral planned attack on civilians. Israel is pretty well known for mudering and targeting Civilians.


Americans did kill civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan and criticized for it. The only major difference between these two senarios is Israel knows every inch of Gaza and Afghanistan is a VAST country (Compare of Gaza strip). Israel has been bombing and attacking refugees for decades. They started targeting non-Jewish civilians since re-birth of "Modern Israel".



Over the history we have that, US army is known for bombing civilians by MISTAKE. Many times in Iraq, Afghanistan,Pakistan they have killed civilians by mistake. However Gaza, Lebanon etc are tiny places where each corner is known to Israel and it's multiple spy agencies. During the Gaza assult last time, Israel was given location of UN schools at least 17 different times but they were bombed anyway.



We have seen similar targting civilians and infrastructures in Lebanon and other areas. So it is less than honest to compare US army and Israeli army.


Us army has history of saving Muslims of Bosnia from Christians. Israel exclusively targets non-Jews and accept high civilian casualty of non-Jews to "Protect" it's land grab operation.


US army has it's problems and it has been criticized by Americans and non-Americans alike. But it intents to do no harm to innocent civilians. I cannot say the same about IDF.



IF you wish to make a fair comparison. You may compare Israeli army and Hamas. Both intents to target civilians and does it regularly.

Until Israelis stop their anti-non Jewish hostility, speaking truth may be considered as anti-israel. I always wish to see a civilized democratic Israel which may lead it's neighbors into a better place. Each year it disappoints me.


I am not simply throwing out ideas, I do spent time to ensure information I express are factual ( Unlike many members). I offer sources of my information. In reply I am attacked (Personally). I welcome your opinion on issues (About accuracy of information etc). Personal attacks are silly and I do not consider it civilized.


I do not have power to change middle east for good but I am capable of treating your ideas FAIRLY. I try to do that. Even when I oppose your ideas, I put out information with sources (Everyone can varify).



Now I am sharing my information from ADL (A historical Jewish civil rights group). Are they anti-Jewish???



While we are not paying attention, Israel is becoming a dangerous religious fanatical state. Which openly discriminate native non-Jewish population. No one should tolerate such ideas in 21st century. Everyone should peacefully speak up against it.

How can anyone attempt to "Defend" bombing school children (When their existance were given 17 times to Israelis!!)??


These are NOT my words. Even Israeli media reported massive attacks on non-Jewish civilians. If the News is ugly, do not blame the messenger!!

>>>>>>> So it gave Israel right to bomb civilians? What kind weird logic is that?



I reject these folks. Can you stop supporting Israel (For killing innocent civilians)???


FYI, anyone who kills innocent civilians, will not get my support.


These are political clashes and Islam does NOT supprot it. They are well used by certain non-Muslim groups but Muslims who know their religion reject these type of violence abusing the name of religion.
