Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Benjamin Netanyahu has taken extraordinary steps to limit Palestinian civilian deaths yet he knows Hamas cannot be defeated without them. Palestinians, who cheered each of the thousands of rockets that howled their way toward Israeli suburbs, are now asking if it was worth it. And Israel needs them to ask that question of Hamas.

Terrorism’s secret weapon of martyrdom is not shared by those Palestinian parents nursing their dead children and the price Hamas has asked them to pay is becoming too costly. Israel needs the innocent inhabitants of Gaza to tell Hamas it's time to stop the rockets. 

But there is a downside to Israel’s justified resolve... Islam has a long memory and Israelis are surrounded by Islamic States that want them obliterated. Netanyahu may stop the rockets but he will never stop the increasing hatred for Israel.

In 1945 no-one but the West wanted Israel to exist and it was asked to occupy a speck of rocky land surrounded by its enemies. The Saudis even suggested partitioning the Jews a piece of defeated Germany.

Yet the tenacious Israelis transformed a shit block of land without oil into a modern jewel of culture and advanced technology. It transformed Arab swamps into fertile farms, it educated its youth and became an intellectual and technological giant among envious Arabs steeped in past animosities.

And Israel, with the help of eager media, is now criticised for daring to defend the morsel it was once thrown.

Each Palestinian death brings a Middle East showdown one day closer. It’s not a war without end, the end must eventually come. The past is the best gauge of the future but the future is now and weapons have superseded ploughshares. The West must soon show its hand.

Only the Arabs (and of course the Greens) see evil in Israelis seeking to defend their little block of land.


Israel has withdrawn from Gaza. OUR soldiers (the ones that are bravely fighting OUR battles), have taken up defensive positions inside Israel. They stand back, do nothing...... and Hamas fires rockets into Israel!!!
These filthy Philistines DON'T WANT peace! They want carnage. They WANT dead and mutilated little bodies. They want the sympathy of the dumb leftist world condemning Israel. This is their food and water - the blood of THEIR OWN innocents. I wonder how many of these Hamas' leaders little children are in the target areas? They want Al Jazeera filming the agony of their poor, benighted, DUMB,STUPID cannon fodder people.They make me sick.
Go Israel. Finish off these EVIL MURDEROUS ISLAMIC BASTARDS once and for all.

Tonight on Q&A an Australian Arab fellow asked why isn't Australia doing more in regards to Palestine so I am wondering why we should be seeing that argument is none of our business and if we did join in we would be seen as guilty as Israel just by calling for a ceasefire . Hamas will only accept the over throw of Israel and nothing else and the last thing we need is their people migrating to our country and stirring up their shit with us by demanding we join in .

Hamas has, for the third time, rejected Israel's offer of cease fire. Now, I know that the Greens are stupid, but how can anyone (stupid or not) believe the Palestinian propaganda. They whinge and bitch about Israeli attacks and the rising Palestinian death toll, but refuse a cease fire. Typical lying Arabs.

Consider 2 Typical Families – Mine v Osama bin Laden
(Typical because Neither of us was responsible for 9/11)
Osama had 4 Wives - Oigle has 1
Osama had 20 Kids - Oigle has 2
Osama’s Dad had 25 Wives – Oigle’s had 1
Osama’s Dad had 54 Kids - Oigle’s had 2
Osama was the 18th. of 25 sons
Osama's Mum was 14 yo when he was born and he had 7 half brothers/sisters born in that same year
So - What is the RATE at which these moslems are out-breeding us?
Is it 6,750 ::1 ??????Please correct me if I'm wrong?
I keep getting LOST in these HUGE Numbers???
However, any way you look at it....... We are still ROOTED Mate.

Shorty is having a brain installed.

The UN Human Rights Commissioner who was making such critical statements about Israel today, suggesting the possibility of crimes against humanity, looks as if she is an Indian, and possibly a Muslim. Does anyone know? In any event, she should be forced to resign from her very lucrative position for making such inaccurate statements.

Please google The Israel Report and/or to get an up to date report on the war between Israel and Hamas. It is not like our reporters or Al Jazeera are telling us. Make up your own minds!

I have no empathy for either Jews or Muslims. To me, the formation of Israel in 48 was a big mistake. However, the expansionist agenda of Israel is wrong. From the formation until now, Israel has never ceased its expansionism, to the point now of almost being a war criminal. The whole situation there is a conundrum with no easy answers. It is only Israel's affinity with the US that has saved it from being wiped off the map. Regardless of whether Israel has a right to exist or not, it should be accepted that it has that right. But it never has had the right to expand on the territory that was set aside for it to exist in the first place. Israel listens to nobody, acts like it has every right in the world to do what it wants, and THAT is the reason for all the protests around the world.

Imagine the out come of the following two scenarios. 1.Palestine and Hamas disarm- the result, peace between Israel and Palestine and the two-state solutions implemented. 2. Israel disarms- within days the remnant population of Jews in Israel will be slaughtered with the rest fleeing to all corners of the world. The current state of Israel will cease to exist and there will be fighting by Lebanon,Syria, Jordon and Egypt over the territory which was once Israel- the Palestinians will then be subsumed into these states and there'll be nothing left of their "homeland". Which is why Israel must never disarm and be allowed to defend itself.

The ABC Adelaide radio news has just described the conflict as 'Israel's war in Gaza' !!

Thanks Larry. A mint of knowledge above and below. Such a shame without end.

The Jews have lived there one hell of a lot longer than the ragheads. Since Abraham at least and I remember reading a long time ago that the Jews never left, the Sabras are those born there and before the poms stuffed verything up in the 1920's with the Balfour papers, they coexisted pretty well with the Arabs. The Sabras and the Arabs are both Semitic, separated by religion one of which only appeared in 632AD, so the Jews have claim. I think Palestine was a pommy creation as well as Jordan, bloody idiots. But I could be wrong, history has been rewritten by the screeching minorities since then.

The thing that the lefties forget is that Israel formerly occupied Gaza after the '68 war (I think). Stupid Israeli leaders then caved into Western pressure to give the Gaza strip and other occupied territory to the Arabs in exchange for peace. And after Israel accepted the "peace deal" and gave the Arabs the land, who then broke that peace with rockets and suicide bombers? That's right folks, the lying Arabs. This is a very interesting article, basically says it like it is, no frills no fuss.

"They call us now. Before they drop the bombs.
The phone rings and someone who knows my first name calls and says in perfect Arabic“This is David.”
And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
still smashing around in my head I think "Do I know any Davids in Gaza?"
They call us now to say Run. You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
Your house is next.They think of it as some kind of war time courtesy. It doesn’t matter that there is nowhere to run to. It means nothing that the borders are closed
and your papers are worthless and mark you only for a life sentence in this prison by the sea and the alleyways are narrow and there are more human lives
packed one against the other more than any other place on earth
Just run.

and sadly the stupid sheep follow them.

Islam Vs Civilisation......What can you do with a cult that has no value for life.

Hamas will fight to the last drop of their children's blood.......Typical of muslims and islam.

Not true,not plain stupid,exceptionally stupid and they give lessons on stupidity
