Condemnation of Israel for defending herself is insane. But then again Islam is an insane ideology and this should be expected.

Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama urged both sides in the escalating conflict between Israel and Palestinians to show restraint and not act in a spirit of revenge, in a German newspaper article to be published on Thursday.
Jordan “condemns the military aggression that Israel has launched in the Gaza Strip” and calls for “its immediate halt”, Government spokesman Mohammad Momani said.
He said the “barbaric aggression” had “negative repercussions on the Gaza Strip and the whole region”.
“Jordan demands Israel stop all forms of escalation. The international community should actively intervene to stop the Israeli aggression,” Momani said. “The Israeli actions violate international laws and obstruct peace efforts in the region,” added the minister, whose country has a 1994 peace treaty with the Jewish state.
The IAF bombed 160 targets in the Gaza Strip overnight as it pressed foward with Operation Protective Edge, the IDF said. The fire escalated early Wednesday, with army radio reporting that at least five rockets or mortar rounds from Gaza were intercepted over the Tel Aviv region by Israel’s Iron Dome air defence system.
Iran’s foreign ministry on Wednesday condemned the raids, calling on the West to urge the Jewish state to prevent a “human catastrophe.”
“We are, unfortunately, witnessing the escalation of savage aggression by the Zionists in recent days against the innocent and defenseless people of Palestine,” ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham said in her weekly briefing with reporters.
Iran calls on “Western countries and supporters of the Zionist regime (to) take firm a stance and prevent a human catastrophe and stop the attacks,” she added, while questioning an “unrealistic excuse of the kidnapping of three Zionist settlers.”
