It has been quite a while since I've blogged here, and lack of time is mostly to blame. However I do intend to resume blogging in the near future.
For now, I cannot help but share a frightening realization.
Several years back, I voiced my ire on this blog about the Enemy Among Us. I deplored our unsuspecting sponsorship of the egregiously-morally-bankrupt media outlets simply by clicking on their news stories, not to mentioning clicking on their advertisers or subscribing to their worthless publications. No, I was not only referring to Al Jazeera or RT, but to CNN, BBC, and all others of their ilk, as I clarified in subsequent Clarification. Please read the original post for context.
At that time, I wrote: "Why are we funding propagandist organizations that tacitly endorse terrorism?" (Parenthetically, please re-read blog post War of Words for elucidation and critique of the term "terrorism," and my alternative term of choice, IGM.)
Well, I now have come to realize that I am personally guilty of far worse. Ok, maybe not personally, but certainly collectively. You see, I have just come to realize that my very own US government is directly funding a notorious, world-recognized jihadi-terrorist organization, Hamas. Here's a link about this shocking turn of events. So now I know how my tax dollars are being spent, to fund Islamo-fascist genocidal murderers, kidnappers, suicide bombers, jihadi warriors, war criminals and baby killers.
Great job, Barack. You've got some foreign policy. Foreign, indeed. Foreign and bizarre that any western power or self-respecting government from the free world would so unabashedly and flagrantly violate their very own laws that prohibit dispensing taxpayer money to recognized terrorist organizations.
But what is more bizarre that we sit by silently while this outrageous malfeasance goes largely unnoticed.
Where are the mass protest, popular uprising, civil disobedience, or at least a few picket signs? Where are all the Jewish organizations? Why aren't we all up in arms?
The silence is deafening.
Someone once aptly commented, "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem."
It seems to me that the very first step of the solution is to stop funding the problem.
