Here's a nice hot cup of STFU to go with your chocolate!
Um, so what were they busy doing when this happened? I certainly didn't see the Swiss put down their watches and chocolates to make a press release about the fact that Sderot is emptier then Pelosi's head! Seriously folks, why do the Israeli's have to sit back and take constant shelling yet they get criticized when they blow up a few bridges and a power plant? Does the media and the Swiss value the lives of the children of Sderot so much less then the Palestinian people? You never see the terrorist missles on the news but the minute the Israeli's respond back they get international criticism, have a cup of STFU.
"A number of actions by the Israeli defense forces in their offensive against the Gaza Strip have violated the principle of proportionality and are to be seen as forms of collective punishment, which is forbidden," the Swiss Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
"There is no doubt that Israel has not taken the precautions required of it in international law to protect the civilian population and infrastructure,"
In 99% of the news reports of the Israeli counter-offensive (and it IS a counter offensive since they didn't start it but you can bet they will finish it!) into Palestine you hear about the Israeli soldier that was kidnapped. Sounds bad doesn't..one soldier "kidnapped" and the Israelis go all nuts. What you don't see talk about in the MSM is that the Pali's had to tunnel almost a mile, come up behind the guardpost, sneak up on the soldiers and kill several to capture Shalit. That's what's called premeditated murder and kidnapping. It's not like Shalit "wandered" into a bad hood. He was on ISRAELI SOIL and they tunneled in like cowardly worms to kill some soldiers and abduct one. At the time I am writing this, Hamas has given Israel 7 more hours to start releasing criminals (they call them prisoners..but we all know they are there for a reason) or else they will "close the case" on Shalit. I pray that he's ok, and that Israel does not give in, all that will do is embolden Hamas for more of these type of showdowns.
Because of this, I present the Swiss with a nice steaming extra large cup of STFU. (on a side note I think I might start doing this daily..there are so many groups/people who need a steaming cup of that).
