In the great debate regarding Israel-Palestine, the evil nature of Hamas is regularly relied upon by the Zionist crowd for, well, just about everything Israel does. One of the frequent talking points of Americans in the pro-Israel crowd is to condemn Hamas for its diversion of resources that could be used to improve conditions in Gaza to its resistance fighting. I’m not sure how this justifies Israel’s actions, but the talking point is relied upon regularly.
There’s that old expression: Before you can talk the talk, you have to walk the walk.
So, I wonder. What if we Americans took the Zionist criticism of Hamas to heart by discontinuing the diversion of just 20% of the resources currently consumed by the military, and instead used those resources to improve life for the poorest of Americans? Here’s what:
1. We still would have far and away the largest military in the world.
2. We would eliminate poverty in America.
So, let’s heed the words of the Zionists among us, and hold ourselves to at least the same standard to which they seek to hold Hamas, okay?
