A guest post by Steve Wenick from Facebook.

In Israel there is a popular coffee drink called Cafe Hafuch (Upside Down Coffee). As it is with that coffee - so it is with the world.

In today’s upside down world why is it that:

· Israel’s blockade of Gaza is regarded as the collective punishment of 1.5 million Palestinians instead of the collective protection of 7 million Israelis against rocket bombardment.

· There's either a demonstration or flotilla, by so called 'peace activists', in support of breaking Israel's blockade of Gaza but no denunciation of the Hamas Charter which calls for the utter destruction of a member state of the UN - Israel.

· Pipe wielding thugs are lauded as humanitarians while the Israel Defense Forces, acting in defense of its civilian population and Israel's right to exist, are condemned as aggressors.

· When Israel occupied Gaza she was criticized and when she left Gaza she was criticized.

· When Israel was the first country to bring medical surgical teams to Haiti, in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, she was accused of engaging in a publicity stunt.

· Israel, a democracy and egalitarian state, is reviled, while some Arab theocracies are free to subjugate women, stone gays and forbid Christians and Jews the free practice of their religion.

· The third Thursday of every month has been declared a day of fasting by a few misguided clergy in protest to Israel's legal blockade of Gaza but that group does not fast in support of calling for the release of Gilad Shalit, who was abducted and is now illegally held hostage by Hamas.

· When the journalist Helen Thomas spewed her venomous and biased remarks against Israel at the President’s press conference, there were still those who rose to defend her rather than condemn her.

· A long time Israeli ally is snubbed during a meal while a long time Russian adversary is treated to one.

· Those who praise the teachings of butchers like Mao, ignore the threats of repressive unhinged supporters of worldwide terrorism like Ahmadinejad, and cozy up to simple minded thugs like Chavez, condemn the only true democracy in the Middle East - Israel.

· The world condemns Israel's leftist, rightist and centrists positions while praising the dictatorial regimes of caliphates and terrorist miscreants.

· During every hudna (the Arabic word for a temporary truce to be used for rearming) only Israel is implored to make tangible concessions for the sake of peace.

In today’s upside down world - I wish it were only the coffee that was upside down.
