How many times have you thought to yourself that Palin was a fraud? How many times have you noticed that she proclaims herself to be a Christian, but seemed to have evil motives? Are you tired of watching Sarah Palin act like she cares about special needs kids while defending people like Rush Limbaugh when he used the “retard” word? How many times have we listened to Sarah Palin make racist remarks, while proclaiming herself not to be biased?
Recently I posted an essay highlighting Palin’s lack of attention to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, even though she has portrayed herself as a good friend of Israel.
Now with her recent post on Facebook, immediately following my post, it is clear that Palin was busted. Even more significantly the analysis, or lack thereof, in her post is proof that she is not only ignorant of the conflict, but that she doesn’t care to educate herself about it.
Here are the facts:
June 12 is the day the three Israeli teens were thought to be missing. Sarah didn’t say a word about the anguish their parents felt.
June 30 was the day the bodies were found. Sarah didn’t even say “sorry for your loss.”
July 1st was the day that the funeral was held for the dead teens, and when the Israel airstrikes began. Palin didn’t send flowers, a card, or even a Tweet about the funeral or the loss of three precious lives.
July 1st was the day Prime Minister Netanyahu said “May God avenge their blood.” “Whoever was involved in the kidnapping and the murder will bear the consequences.” Palin didn’t say a word about a “blood libel” or “reloading” that day.
For 24 days the war in Gaza raged on killing children and soldiers and Palin was silent. That was during the time she was fishing.
July 25th Sarah Palin posts a picture of Howard Stern on her Facebook with no commentary.
July 27- after a month of fighting a brief cease fire was agreed to, but Hamas broke the peace and fired additional rockets at Israel.
July 29- My post on this blog regarding the lack of comment by Palin to even suggest that she is focused on, or concerned for her dead friends in Israel. While the time of my post is not listed, it was at sometime before 2:38 pm Dallas time, as that was the time of the first comment.
For over 30 days Palin had not offered a kind word, a prayer, or a letter from God to express her concern for her friends in Israel. However the day that I made the observation that Palin had failed to comment or notice the plight of the people of Israel, she posted a brief, 3 line reference to the war, with absolutely NO commentary from her about her “friends in Israel.” She said:
“I posted a new video to the top of my channel called “The Truth About the War in Israel.” I look to two very unlikely sources for wisdom on what’s really going on there. Please check it out and let me know what you think.”
Thus even this reference seems more like a way to generate hits for her new channel rather than taking a position on the conflict in Gaza. This post was made on the same day as mine, just a few hours later. While her post does not have a time either, the first comment came at 6:28 pm from “Peter ACS,” roughly four hours after my post.
What Sarah failed to mention was that:
1. There have been 32 tunnels of Hamas uncovered by Israel.
2. Each tunnel cost roughly 3 million dollars that could have been spent to feed or educate the children of Gaza.
3. Israel estimated that Hamas had 10,000 rockets when the conflict began, and more than 2600 rockets have been launched at Israel. Roughly 3000 rockets have been destroyed in the assault by Israel, so it is estimated the reserve of Hamas is roughly 40% of what they started with.
4. The population of Israel is roughly 8 million while the population of Gaza it closer to 1.8 million. The majority of Israelis currently support military action against Hamas, but it is unclear exactly how many in Gaza want militants to stop rocket attacks. While most Palestinians in Gaza oppose a two-state solution and want to work toward a five-year goal of abolishing Israel, the majority support nonviolent methods of “popular resistance.”
The timing and nature of the post of Palin conveys a total lack of concern and understanding of the conflict that rages on between Israel and Hamas. In Texas we call that “busted.” I’m not intending to suggest that Palin is “busted” as defined in the Urban dictionary. My meaning is more like this:
