Where Art Thou, Green Parties of the World?

Since April of this year, when the palestinians began their so-called “march of return” riots, they have burned over 30,000 acres of land in the western Negev with their incendiary balloon, condom and kite terrorism.

This act of eco terrorism has been very instructive.

As I have already posted, if you are still unclear as to who is indigenous to this land, allow the wisdom of Solomon to decide. But there’s also another revealing aspect to this all.

According to the Green Party of the US:

There are over 100 Green Parties around the world, on every continent except Antarctica. Greens represent a global movement for environmental and social justice, nonviolence, and democracy.

That’s a lot of Green parties around the world campaigning for the environment. So you’d think at least one of them would object to the palestinians causing so much destruction to cultivated fields, forest and nature reserves, as well as polluting the sky with smoke.

Think again. Not even one of the 100 Green Parties around the world has issued a condemnation or even comment on this wanton destruction.

Not that they haven’t found the time to issue press releases on the goings-on at the march of return. For example the Green Party of NZ:

but nothing on the destruction of land equivalent in size to 10 times the New Zealand Island of Tokelau.

The Green Party of Canada has managed two press released on Gaza

but nothing on the destruction of land equivalent in size to one-one-hundred-fiftieth of Lake Ontario.

Similarly, the US Green Party has had this to say:

but do not seem at all concerned with the destruction of land equivalent to one-fifth the size of New York city.

And let’s not forget the UK Greens:

who seem indifferent to the destruction of land three-tenths the size of The Isle of Wight.

What this should tell you is that for the Green Parties, hatred of Israel trumps faux concern for the environment.
