Israel Is Losing This War

NEARLY SEVENTY  YEARS ago, in the course of World War
II, a heinous crime was committed in  the city of
Leningrad. For more than a thousand days, a gang of
extremists  called "the Red Army" held the millions of
the town's inhabitants hostage and  provoked retaliation
from the German Wehrmacht from inside the  population
centers. The Germans had no alternative but to bomb and
shell  the population and to impose a total blockade,
which caused the death of  hundreds of thousands.

Some time before that, a similar crime was  committed in
England. The Churchill gang hid among the population  of
London, misusing the millions of citizens as a human
shield. The  Germans were compelled to send their
Luftwaffe and reluctantly reduce the  city to ruins.
They called it the Blitz.

This is the description that  would now appear in the
history books - if the Germans had won the  war.

Absurd? No more than the daily descriptions in our
media, which  are being repeated ad nauseam: the Hamas
terrorists use the inhabitants of  Gaza as "hostages"
and exploit the women and children as "human  shields",
they leave us no alternative but to carry out  massive
bombardments, in which, to our deep sorrow, thousands
of women,  children and unarmed men are killed and
injured.
