One should note that despite calling for constant military intervention in the name of preventing atrocities/genocide, Power herself is now responsible for supporting and contributing to a genocide—that of the Palestinian people.

Israel can’t even claim self-defence anymore.

The Netanyahu government lied about the three teens they knew were murdered by a different clan and used this as an excuse to go on a violent rampage before Hamas decided to fight back with its first rocket.

The Netanyahu government repeated this tactic a second time and accused Hamas of breaking the ceasefire because they claimed Hamas captured an Israeli soldier, who again turned out to have already been dead. This resulted in massive destruction and death of countless civilians.

Today’s servant of power is:

The Genocide Exploiters

People who are complicit with the blatant exploitation of the Rwandan crisis to justify further Western aggression and intervention (as if such an intervention will ever truly help anybody) should also be held responsible for contributing to human death and suffering.

The mentality of Americans is “we come first and we need to protect ourselves from the rest of the world; no questions asked” as well as “we are benevolent and the sane good guys.”

Uncompromising and exhaustive?  She skipped over entire chapters of history and downplayed America’s contribution to the tragedies…

Any mention of East Timor in the book?  Any mention of the role the US did play in Rwanda?

On top of that, now that the West is finally shedding some long overdue responsibility on Israel, Goldberg can’t help but chime in with some victim blaming:

U.S. Officials: Blame Palestinians, Too


People like Henneberger couldn’t care less how many people are murdered in this world.  If she did she would be educating the public on genocide exploitation in the Western media rather than being party to it.

Rwanda genocide witness bemoans lack of political will to stop similar atrocities

I feel Romeo Dallaire was genuine (he even crashed his car in front of Parliament Hill because of the guilt he was experiencing over the Rwandan crisis) but that doesn’t mean the reason people are honouring and reporting on him is genuine.  Henneberger is exploiting what this poor gentleman went through, as well.
