160 – 0. Where are the U.S. government calls for Netanyahu to step down?

“Ignoring international appeals for a cease-fire, Israel widened its range of Gaza bombing targets Saturday to include civilian institutions with suspected Hamas ties. One strike hit a center for the disabled, killing two patients and wounding four people. In a second attack, an Israeli warplane flattened the home of Gaza police chief Taysir al-Batsh and damaged a nearby mosque as evening prayers ended, killing at least 18 people, 17 of whom were al-Batsh family members. Fifty were wounded, including al-Batsh himself.”


At the beginning of protests in Syria, the US government and others called for Bashar Al Assad to step down because some protesters were killed. This despite the fact that some of these “peaceful protesters” had killed civilians and policeman at the very earliest rallies.

Palestinian rocket fire has killed ZERO Israelis. ZERO. And yet, Benjamin Netanyahu has killed 160 Palestinians with airstrikes and the airstrikes continue. In defiance of calls for “restraint,” Netanyahu has stated that the attacks will continue until he has decided they are done.

Where are the calls for his resignation? The hypocrisy is sickening.


About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a yoga and fitness instructor and personal trainer. And I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. My life is defined by my family, and right now, that means chronic worry and fear. Thank God for my faith and the support of my family and friends. I started this blog to talk about all sorts of things, but now I focus on Syria. Until this war is over, I, like all Syrians with a love for their country and their families, am a prisoner of this war, waiting to see what will be left after the dust settles. I pray for the safety of my family and for my country to survive and repair itself in the future. God willing.
