Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
First off, let's define what moral equivalency is: it is a term used to usually deny that a moral comparison can be made of two sides in a dispute (in this case a war).
With that definition in mind, many anti-Semites in the United States and countries of the world are blaming Israel for the war between Israel and Hamas, claiming that it is all Israel's fault when really the opposite is true. It was Hamas who attacked Israel, not the other way around.
On October 7th, Hamas attacked Israel, killing, butchering, maiming, and taking innocent hostages from inside Israeli territory. With over 1400 Israeli citizens, and some foreigners included as murder victims, along with over 230 hostages taken, Israel responded by declaring war on the Hamas terrorists who reside in the Gaza Strip. As Israel goes about trying to annihilate the Hamas threat, they are being charged with genocide, no matter what the provocation was by the brutal, inhumane attack by Hamas. It seems that through “social media” (Tik Tok for one), and by various world organizations (the U.N.), this vile calumny against Israel has resulted in world-wide condemnation of Israel. It seems common sense and logic have been turned upside down.
For years, Israel has been subjected to attacks of missiles and acts of violence within the State of Israel by various Muslim groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad etc. Their response was to try to immobilize the sources of those attacks, with minimal results as the attacks continued, but after the barbaric attack by the Hamas thugs and murderers with their butchery of hundreds attending a Peace Concert, and the killing of innocent families in their homes near the Gaza border, the Israeli's could not let that horrific episode go on without a response – hence the decision of Israel to declare war on Hamas, and their desire “to cut off the head of the snake”, Hamas leaders, and their marauding hordes of crazed killers.
Some of the world community have been brainwashed into thinking that Israel is a pariah state and is an occupying nation, contrary to all rational thinking, but most of the Western nations have come to the defense of Israel in trying to stop the brutality of Hamas and to point the finger at the major terror State of Iran, who has been supplying arms and munitions to their puppet groups of Hamas and Hezbollah. In our country, many rallies have been attended by Muslim citizens, far-left lunatics, and with many misled young people who attend schools, colleges, and universities, in denouncing Israel. Some of these protests have turned violent and many Jewish citizens fear for their safety, especially at some colleges and universities.
The Biden Administration, has lukewarmly supported Israel, but have been supporting a cease fire (calling it a pause), but the Israeli's have rejected it, and rightly so. President Biden projects, from his words and actions, weakness and the enemies of Israel seem to be taking advantage of that. Israel says that they must annihilate Hamas so future atrocities can be minimized or done away with, so any shutdown will only let Hamas to rearm and regroup.
The fear that this conflict could lead into a major war in the Middle East is a real possibility, mainly due to the participation of that evil regime in Iran who has called for the elimination of both Israel and the United States. The chants by the pro-Hamas demonstrators of “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” is a call to wipe Israel off the map and to humiliate the United States, the major backer of the State of Israel.
So, when you hear the term “moral equivalency” directed at Israel as they try to defend their country and their population, it shows the lack of moral enlightenment that the anti-Semites project as they spew their venom against the only real democracy in the Middle East. Unfortunately, collateral damage to civilians during times of war are inevitable, but Israel, to its credit, has warned residents caught in the line fire in Gaza to go south to avoid being caught in the crossfire, which the Hamas leaders have, in many cases, turned back the civilians from leaving Gaza City so they can be used a shields for the purpose of showing dead civilians killed by the 'ruthless' Israeli's. A total fabrication and a definite war crime by Hamas. There can be no moral equivalency when dealing with terrorists so we should let Israel do what it has to do to survive with God's speed.

Most everyone knows, with the exception of some spokespeople in the White House and the left-leaning media, that the evil mullah's of Iran are responsible for the vicious recent attacks on innocent civilians in Israel. That being said, shouldn't Iran be brought up on charges of being “accessories to a crime”? The definition of being an “accessory to a crime” is as follows: “ Someone (or some country) can be accused of being an “accessory to a crime” if they in any way knowingly assisted, contributed, aided, or offered advice to another so they could commit a crime”. Iran seems to meet that definition to a tee and should be held accountable.
The dastardly, vicious, evil acts by Hamas of maiming, murdering, and the taking of hostages, should not go unpunished by Israel, the victims of this crime against humanity. The pressure that some apologists for Hamas have exercised around the world, and especially in our own country, is hard to comprehend. The false, unverified, inhumane acts supposedly committed by Israel in reaction to the murderous rampage of Hamas, shows that antisemitism is alive and well in many countries of the world, including our own.
The acolytes of Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah, both who viscerally hate Israel, couldn't have lasted over the years if it wasn't for the physical and monetary help of the evil country of Iran. Neither Hamas or Hezbollah have done anything to help their fellow Muslims than to use the funds given to them, not to improve the lives of the Palestinians, but to assemble an arsenal of arms and explosives to be used against the Israelis.
The latest horrendous episode by Hamas couldn't have been carried out without the help of Iran, especially during the almost three years of the Biden Administration. When Joe Biden took office, the Middle East was somewhat tranquil under the leadership if Pres. Trump, but upon Biden being sworn in as president, he did away with most of the roadblocks Trump set up to rein in the Iranians, and their puppets, Hamas and Hezbollah. Our appeasement policies by the Biden Administration has led to a war in Ukraine, and now a war between Israel and Hamas, with Hezbollah waiting in the wings. Ever since our disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, our enemies have sensed weakness on the part of the United States under the stewardship of Joe Biden and his group of flunky's in his inner circle. Biden has even refused to enforce the sanctions against Iran thereby letting them reap billions of dollars of oil money used to finance terror. A major blunder.
So in conclusion, it can be deduced that Iran, the world's greatest purveyor of terror in the world, can and should be charged with being an “accessory to the crime” as they have their footprints all over the volatile Middle East. The United States must give our full support to Israel in its fight to remain a country, in the face of the Muslim hordes that want to see them driven to the sea. Israel can take care of business against Hamas, but we should be there for them if other bad actors enter the fray. We must act as their insurance policy to help them remain a free and democratic country, and our only reliable friend in that part of the world.
