"THE FENCE" - Whatshisname Trudeau
I was not able to catch the whole program called "The Fence" but from what I could see it was a surface attempt to explain that the fence should not be there because "I have been on both sides of that fence," says Trudeau. "I have laughed with the people there and shared their fears and frustrations. They are just people." (Unfortunately he left out the "JUST PEOPLE" WHO ARE WILLING TO STRAP ON A BOMB AND KILL MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE!!!) Is that his idea of "just people" ?
I SAW VERY LITTLE REFERENCE TO THE NECESSITY OF THE FENCE. The unfortunate lack of depth and seeking the real truth leaves one to "feel" that the fence is unjustified.
Well I would say that saving innocent lives of those that live in Israel IS JUSTIFIED! Is Mr. Trudeau saying that he would leave his door unlocked and open when there are "wild animals" outside? The wild animals are the Palestinian terrorists who have been taught to hate from a young age.
Why not some outrage at the textbooks which teach young Palestinians of elementary school age to hate and kill Israelis? Why not point out that it is too bad that so many Palestinians are willing to listen to their corrupt leaders like Arafat who takes aid money and builds himself more homes and leaves his Palestinian brothers to live in such places as Jenin. He cares NOTHING about his brother Arabs. He just wants as he said once, "to drive Israel into the sea". And he has to keep his people poor and uneducated so they will be his willing angry slaves.
When was the last time that you heard of an Israeli suicide bomber? The fault is on one side, NOT TWO as Mr. Trudeau would like us to believe. I know there are many innocent Palestinians but unfortunately by listening to their terrorist leaders they have brought destruction and hardship on themselves. Do they blame their leaders who encourage the suicide bombers? Or do they blame the Israelis for making life harder due to the fence? From the program, we get the feeling that the fence is unjust BUT IT WAS NOT POINTED OUT THAT IT IS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE BLOODSHEDDING OF INNOCENT ISRAELI JEWS AND ISRAELI ARABS.
Arabs who live on the Israeli side are treated with respect and dignity. If they are citizens, they receive the same healthcare and privileges as Jews. Can the same thing be said of Jews who live on the Arab side of the fence?
I am not Jewish. But I can at least not encourage hatred of Jews and anti-semitic feelings that can be the only result of this "seemingly innocuous" story. Shame on W5 and shame on CTV to allow a story which seems to lay the blame for the fence on the Jewish side when all they are trying to do is protect themselves.
There used to be an alternative to the RADICAL LEFTISTS WHO RUN THE CBC, but unfortunately that APPEARS to be gone and now we have two radical leftist networks. It is sad that I have to abandon the CTV network which I watched for so many years due to it's unbiassed reporting. It is sad I have to turn to U.S. PBS stations to hear reasonably balanced news, but I do.
