Stephen Sizer link compares Qassam rockets to slingshots


Above: The reality of Qassam rocket attacks.

I followed this link from this blog post by Stephen Sizer, to find an article entitled “The truth about those Hamas rockets.”

The article claims:

Yes, such rockets exist, but they’re little more than slingshots against Israel’s incredible military might, and they’re used out of desperation by Palestinians who’ve never been accorded the democratic space within which to gain redress of their eminently just grievances.

Israeli apologists have presented absurd propaganda about those devices.

We’ve been asked, for instance, what would we do if rockets were being launched on our homes in New York or Texas, from Canada or Mexico?

The proper answer is that, if those two nations had been unlawfully occupied or embargoed by the United States for 60 years of relentless oppression and repression, and if all attempts at peaceful change had been forcefully prevented or scuttled by the U.S., then such attacks would be an understandable, indeed a justifiable attempt at gaining intolerably deferred liberty.”

(emphasis mine)

Thus Rev Sizer appears to back the claim that illegal acts of terrorism against Israeli civilians are justifiable (see here also), whilst also propagating the myth that Qassam rockets are ‘little more than slingshots.’

Along with the writer of this article Denis Rahkonen, and blogger Richard Seymour, Rev Sizer joins those who sneer at Sderot.

    Its a pity Shyster doesn’t have a comments facility on his blog. I guess his narcissistic disorder means he only works in output mode.

    What a prat!

    These rockets have killed have they not? Is that not good enough for Sizer??? (I say this to demonstrate Sizer’s mentality, Last I heard a few days ago it had killed 4 Israeli’s – which is 4 too many in my view!).

    j.r. – Sizer removed the comments section on his blog deliberately so nobody could challenge or contradict his views.
