Smart Lies or Evil Lies?

Aren't you exercising excessive use of force?
No at all, we are responding to their violence ...
But they are using rocks and small weapons ...
They are killing us with rocks and their weapons ...
But there is more death on their side than on yours ...
It does not make any difference ...

But Israel kill with gunships and tanks ...
So what? We are defending ourselves ...
You are killing their people and their activists?
We are killing the terrorists?
But they are the Palestinian resistance.
Resistance is terrorism.

But by international Law, UN Charter ...
They have the right to resist occupation.
Resistance is terrorism for us.
But you have to listen to the International Law.
The Israeli law is the only law that we listen to.
But you cannot ...
I feel that you are Anti-Semitic!
Sorry, I am not.

You demolish Palestinian houses and burn their farms ...
So what? We are defending ourselves ...
You took their lands and built settlements ...
So what? We need to build settlements for our people ...
But all the settlements by International Law ...
By the UN resolutions are illegal ...
We believe only in the Israeli Law.
You cannot oblige the whole world to ...
We feel that you are Anti-Semitic!
Sorry, I am not.

But what about the right of the Palestinians to build ...
They have to apply for permission ...
But you are not giving permission to them ...
They have to apply until we give ...
And if they applied for years and years ...
And you did not give permission?
Without permission! It is illegal ...
And we have the right to demolish the house ...
But Settlers build everywhere, anywhere ...
I told you are Anti-Semitic?
Sorry, I am not at all!

You took over 80% of their Land!
So what? We may give them the rest!
But the rest is dispersed and divided land?
So what? We could keep it, and we are giving it.
You are not giving, this is their own land after all.
Again? With your anti-Semitism?

You control everything?
You control the borders ...
The electricity ... the water ...
They're coming in and going out ...
Because we want security!
Is your security to make of them slaves?
If they are not happy, they can go to Arabic countries!
But this is the land of their fathers!
And you cannot do that!
I assure you that you are Anti-Semitic!
I assure you that I am not.

Why you do not accept international forces?
Because we are a democratic country ...
We do not need any forces to watch over us ...
But they will protect you and them ...
They will say who is using violence ...
The Palestinians are using violence ...
Let the International forces determine that ...
They will interfere in our democratic country ...
They will not ...

Look, enough ...

I always smelled anti-Semitism in your questions!
But I am not!
Yes, you are!
Why?
Because ...
Anybody who asks such questions ...
Anybody who does not accept our "TRUTH" ...
Anybody who dares to question our visions ...
Anybody who interprets the news that we give ...
Differently ... or changes an "Alpha" or 'Iota" ...
Is Anti-Semitic!

But, sorry facts on the ground ...
Say that you do lie ...
Facts are anti-Semitic!

But many investigators have reported the Truth ...
About what is really happening and ...
They do not agree with your versions ...
They are all Anti-Semites.

But they wanted to tell the objective "TRUTH."
The Truth is Anti-Semitic!

But a lot of them are even Jews!
Good people, wonderful witnesses ...
They are pro-Justice, pro-Truth ...
They feel that it is not right ...
That it is not fair ...
They say: "Not in our name!".
They dissociate themselves from ...
Jews can be Anti-Semites!

And Uncle Sam believes that ...
There is no worse than somebody ...
Who knows that it is a lie ...
And cover it with its "Intelligence"...
And let others believe in it ...
And come to believe their own lies ...

And Uncle Sam supports the lies ...
With weapons, with Vetoes at the UN ...
With money, the Congress and ...

Uncle Sam is lying to himself ...
Uncle Sam "Junior" is also lying to himself.

Uncle Sam is lying to "Junior" Sam.
Uncle Sam is not helping "Junior" future.
Uncle Sam is destroying "Junior" future.
Uncle Sam does not tell "Junior" all the Truth.

The Truth, the Uncle Sam should tell Junior ...
But he is just lying to him is ...
"If you need to survive ...
Dear Junior, make friends and not war ...
Accept the rights of others, respect them ...

Do not destroy their hope, dreams and souls ....
Nobody could destroy yours...
So respect, accept their rights.
Give them back what you have stolen from them ...

After all Palestinians want to live in peace in thier land ...
In their houses, with their Children...
They have the right to resist occupation ..
You are just an occuping forces Israel..."

Until when ...
Until then ...
The world will be lied to.
Uncle Sam is loosing its credibility ...
Uncle Sam will be considered a LIAR.
"Junior" Sam will be a LIE.

Until then ...
Uncle Sam is lying to "Junior."
And Junior's Electric chair ...
Is the US Congress and Administration.
They are killing Israel not helping her.

And lies will continue ...
Smart lies ....
But at the same time ...
Sorry...
Evil lies.
