Your Letters: Israel vs. Hamas

Israeli vs. Serbian politics

Re: your Dec. 31 article, “Israel rejects truce call, pursues bombing Gaza”:

What do Palestinian Hamas and Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) have in common?

They both are labeled terrorist groups, according to the U.S. State Department, but that is where all similarities end as far as the U.S. is concerned, as well as most of the world.

When Hamas targets Israeli people, infrastructure from their civilian areas in Gaza, along with the suicide bombers, and when Israel retaliates like it knows how, the U.S. blames it on the Palestinians, Hamas. And let’s not forget Hezbollah, who is being very quiet now.

Yet, when Serbia does the same thing against the terrorist group KLA, which also hides among civilians and kills Serbian people all over Kosovo, the U.S. and the world condemn the Serbs. Let’s not forget, in case local readers did not read in the newspaper, how KLA was taking Serbian people hostages and removing their body organs for sale all over the world before they killed them. (Referenced in Karla Del Ponte book and now the case is being investigated).

Where is world’s outcry now for this barbaric act by the Kosovars? Just two weeks ago, three Kosovars were found guilty for plotting an attack on a U.S. Army base in New Jersey, but 6,000 miles away, the U.S. supports their actions in Kosovo against Serbian people. Funny how that works: not in my back yard, but it’s OK across the street.

We, the Serbs, also have the same rights to defend our land and people in Kosovo, just like Israel does. Yet, the U.S.-led coalition supports the KLA terrorist actions, but condemns the Hamas terror actions. Funny how that works.

Hamas is a terrorist group and don’t be fooled with the front-page pictures of its civilians, as they would cut you to pieces if you are American or Israeli. The world was fooled with the civilian images in Kosovo and is being fooled again in Gaza. I fully support Israeli actions and its right to defend its people and land.

Also adding insult to Serbia and their people, the U.S. pushed for and got its way for an independent Kosovo, which is part of Serbia and is the birthplace of our Orthodox religion, where more than 150 Serbian churches have been destroyed ever since the so-called piece force was brought in Kosovo in 1999.

I would like to see the same efforts being exercised by the U.S. government, i.e., push for and forcibly take away Jerusalem and the sacred Wailing Wall from the Israelis and give it to the Palestinians and Hamas.

Oh, I am sorry, I forgot that we are talking here about Israel and its indirect influence in the USA versus a small country like Serbia, which saved 500 American pilots in World War II behind the enemy lines.

Once again, the double standard is being shown by the U.S. when it comes to Balkan politics versus Israeli politics. Support the terrorists in Kosovo, but condemn them in Palestine. The American Indians had this to say about the U.S. government back then: “White man speaks with a forked tongue,” and it’s very interesting that it is true to this day.
