Hawkish US Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) says Israel is demonstrating “restraint” in its continuing airstrikes on the Gaza Strip that have killed over 170 people, adding such “restraint” is “admirable.”

According to the latest reports, the death toll from Israel’s attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip has risen to 175. Over 1,230 Palestinians have also been injured since the Tel Aviv regime began its deadly airstrikes on Gaza on Tuesday.

Reports also show Palestinian families are fleeing their homes in northern Gaza. According to the Gaza-based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, more than three quarters of the victims are civilians.

Meanwhile, Palestinian fighters have launched more rockets into Israel in retaliation for the bombardment of Gaza.

In an interview with CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday, McCain said the situation has become “more dangerous than any time in the past” and he blamed Palestinians for Israel’s atrocities against them.

“It’s very important to understand: There’s no moral equivalency here. Israel is being attacked by hundreds of rockets,” McCain, who is a member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said.

“Picture the United States of America with a country contiguous to ours, that we’re being subjected to rocket attacks. So the restraint of the Israelis, in my view, is admirable,” the Arizona Republican added.

McCain’s remarks came just two days after Jewish protesters in 15 US cities condemned the Zionist regime for its atrocities against Palestinians.

On Friday, Jewish Voice for Peace organized anti-Israel protests in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, among other US cities.

Jewish Voice for Peace is allied with the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement which campaigns for the boycott of Israeli goods.

    McCain’s a documented sociopath, character disorder. In 2008 on the eve of the Presidential elections Rolling Stones published a well-researched article by Tim Dickinson titled, “MAKE BELIEVE MAVERICK” on McCain’s character and dubious history.

    McCain’s aberrant behavior showed up well before his prisoner of war experience. I’m posting a couple of excerpts from the article – one from adolescence and one from 2008 when the article was published.

    **Trailing his hard-charging, hard-drinking father from post to post, McCain didn’t play well with others. Indeed, he concedes, his runty physique inspired a Napoleon complex: “My small stature motivated me to . . . fight the first kid who provoked me.”

    McCain spent his formative years among the Washington elite. His father — himself deep in the throes of a daddy complex — had secured a political post as the Navy’s chief liaison to the Senate, a job his son would later hold, and the McCain home on Southeast 1st Street was a high-powered pit stop in the Washington cocktail circuit. Growing up, McCain attended Episcopal High School, an all-white, all-boys boarding school across the Potomac in Virginia, where tuition today tops $40,000 a year. There, McCain behaved with all the petulance his privilege allowed, earning the nicknames “Punk” and “McNasty.” Even his friends seemed to dislike him, with one recalling him as “a mean little fucker.”

    McCain was not only a lousy student, he had his father’s taste for drink and a darkly misogynistic streak. The summer after his sophomore year, cruising with a friend near Arlington, McCain tried to pick up a pair of young women. When they laughed at him, he cursed them so vilely that he was hauled into court on a profanity charge.**

    HERE’S A MORE RECENT EXCERPT:
    **McCain is sensitive about his physical appearance, especially his height. The candidate is only five-feet-nine, making him the shortest party nominee since Michael Dukakis. On the night he was elected senator in 1986, McCain exploded after discovering that the stage setup for his victory speech was too low; television viewers saw his head bobbing at the bottom of the screen, his chin frequently cropped from view. Enraged, McCain tracked down the young Republican who had set up the podium, prodding the volunteer in the chest while screaming that he was an “incompetent little shit.” Jon Hinz, the director of the Arizona GOP, separated the senator from the young man, promising to get him a milk crate to stand on for his next public appearance.

    During his 1992 campaign, at the end of a long day, McCain’s wife, Cindy, mussed his receding hair and needled him playfully that he was “getting a little thin up there.” McCain reportedly blew his top, cutting his wife down with the kind of language that had gotten him hauled into court as a high schooler: “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” Even though the incident was witnessed by three reporters, the McCain campaign denies it took place.**

      Nancy, thank you for this!!!

      Without going into the details, which I frankly cannot remember, McCain as I understand it has spent a lifetime trying to gain his father’s love and recognition. . . and we see the results. I see you’ve mentioned this fact . . . I read it years ago in some detail. It all goes back to our early years . . . sad, but true . . . Hugs, ~Jean

    Mr. McCain is in desperate need for a long over due pink slip.
    This man, is always on the side of more war. He NEVER supports peace.
    What is this man still doing representing Arizona or Americans. He does not hold our values.
    I think he left his mind in Vietnam. Can’t believe Arizona keeps him hinging around when Arizona citizens cringe when he gets time on TV or out in the public.

    I wrote him, about labeling GMO products & foods and he told me, it would be too expensive for those big stores/companies to require labeling on our foods & products. I rest my case.
    Can’t we vote this man gone gone gone?

    Now, why doesn’t that really surprise me?  GRRRRRRRs Cheers and HUGS
