And In This Week of Hypocrisy….

Jimmy gets vocal

Former US president Jimmy Carter states that Israel has over 150 nuclear weapons in its arsenal. He also reiterates his belief that Israel’s suppression of the civilians in the West Bank is "One of the greatest human rights crimes on earth is the starvation and imprisonment of 1.6m Palestinians," well really Mister Carter thanks for saying that and still showing your support for Israel ‘As a country’??? (Quotes; the BBC).

The big dog

In the same story former Israeli Military intelligence chief Aharon Zeevi-Farkash has told Reuters that he finds Mr. Carters comments “irresponsible” and goes on to say that "The problem is that there are those who can use these statements when it comes to discussing the international effort to prevent Iran getting nuclear weapons," he said. Oh, he must mean the few of us with a bit of sense in our heads who can somehow find the brains to ask the question; “If you can possess nuclear weapons, why can’t anyone else??”

Sir, would you please let us protect you in exchange for some entertainment for our troops?

UN peacekeeping sexually abusing children? Well that certainly seems to be the case in Africa where one 13 year old girl claims to have been gang raped by ten (that’s right TEN) peacekeeping soldiers and left bleeding cold and vomiting in the ground in a field near her Ivory Coast home. Other incidents of such a nature have been reporter from Sudan and Haiti and that’s only because a research was carried out in these areas. If that study was never done by we would go on being ignorant of these heinous crimes. And to think the UN positions itself as the savior of the world? What are they going to do about this?

Bloody Rogues

In two more interesting news stories, one Peruvian politician has come under fire for popping a bullet in a neighbor’s dog which was ‘bothering his ducks’ and Canada’s foreign minister has resigned after leaving a classified document in a ‘non-secure’ place (an ex-girlfriend’s apartment) . Man, am I glad our Sri Lankan politicians are not rogues like these. Arent you?

thanks for the comment mate, but let me just reiterate why i branded the subjects of these stories hypocrites.

1)Carter - sure he's done a lot of work to help pressing issues all over the world but acknowledging Israrels treatment of Palestenians as a crime against humanity and still showing support to Israel 'as a country' kinda stops on the edge of the line where words meet action. but believe me even a statement like this especially from an ex-US president could go a long way in creating awareness of the situation in that part of the Middle East so im still supportive of his comment.

2) UN peacekeeping abusing kids? now i know there is rioting and stuff in haiti but the UM is supposed to protect the peace, not gang rape kids!

3) That was meant to be extra sarcastic...i'd trade a dog killing peruvian (if thats all he is upto) with our dear ol Merv Silva ANY old day!

Peace out!
