Above: The reality of Qassam rocket attacks.
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.”
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.
