Amnesty International Calls For Arms Embargo On Israel

Hardly unexpected, but uniquely cowardly and supine:

The human rights group Amnesty International called on the United States to stop weapons sales to Israel and on all countries to impose an arms embargo on both Israel and the Palestinians.

Slideshow: Pictures of the week "As the major supplier of weapons to Israel, the USA has a particular obligation to stop any supply that contributes to gross violations of the laws of war and of human rights. The Obama administration should immediately suspend US military aid to Israel," said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty's Middle East director.

He also called on the "UN Security Council to impose an immediate and comprehensive arms embargo on Israel, Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups."

As if Iran is going to stop supplying missiles to Hamas and Hezbollah!

What Amnesty International is actually calling for is for the West to participate in a second Holocaust by simply looking the other way...and what happens, happens.Not only that, but with all their supposed concern for the Palestinians, they fail to realize that this time the Jews can defend themselves and are not going to go quietly. And that if there's a shortage n conventional weaponry and Israel is attacked by its genocidal enemies, she might just resort to more drastic means to take care of the problem and defend the country.

How ironic that this clown's last name is 'Smart'...

Intelligence has never been a barometer of wisdom in the history of the human species, Rob. You know that.
