Fire even one rocket at another nation – you have declared war

The Israeli request is that they be allowed to live in peace. The Arab book and every Imam has them killing every last Jew, wherever they can be found and wiping Israel off the map. That’s it. That’s the beginning and end of it, the alpha and omega.

One commenter at my place replied to another about the wicked Israelis going out to murder innocent Palestinian children.

Dear oh dear.

Ordinarily, a person would stop and think when confronted with so many other commenters saying similar things. I would stop and think.

No one is condoning the slaughter of children of either side or any children anywhere. That’s a given we start with. No one would want that as their international reputation – it’s bad for business.

Also remember that we are over here and are neither Jewish nor Palestinian ourselves in the main.

Why are Palestinian children being killed? Are the Israelis chuckling to themselves like fiends and out-of-the=blue saying, “Ha, ha, ha, let’s go out and kill some Palestinian kiddies today?”

Nethanyahu, for all he is one of Them, a Rothschild plant and therefore one to sow discord and strife i nthe area, still cannot afford to have civilians killed on the other side in any numbers, in order to maintain military funding – it is military targets such as Hamas they are after.

They’re airstriking at the moment because a ground invasion complicates the matter greatly, especially without any international support beyond America’s contractual obligations.

The reason any children are killed is collateral when Hamas put their military installations in among the people. This is a known-known – they use human shields. Think through the humanity in that or lack of it. Do we do that in war? Do we launch rockets from inside a school, in the vain hope that the victims will not strike back?

Remember Beslan for an idea of the Muslim commitment to the lives of children.

As for why Israel strikes back: name one country which, if its sovereign space is being invaded by rocket attack day after day after day does not call that a breach of ceasefire and a de facto declaration of war? Under international rules, Israel have all the jusification in the world for invasion and whatever follows that.

The last time Gaza was invaded, Hamas were severely wounded and their weapons largely destroyed. Now they’ve rearmed and are raining rockets down on Israel again, indiscriminately. They don’t care whom they kill. They just want to kill Jews.

Contrast that with ground invasion by Israel which, apart from the phosphorous – which was roundly condemned by all sides – targetted Hamas militants and kept collateral [human shields] to a minimum.

Hamas know that ground invasion will produce the same result as last time and they don’t particularly wish to be killed. Firing rockets is much safer because only their people are killed in return and they don’t give a s*** about their people.

If you’re going to lay the blame for the dead Palestinian children anywhere, it has to be primarily at the door of Hamas and by extension, Hesbollah in the Lebanon.

Saying to a sovereign nation that they must suffer daily rockets but can never retaliate is insanity.

Saying that Hamas rockets go into empty fields but Israeli strikes are pinpointed, therefore Israel has the greater bad, even in retailiation, is ludicrous.

A map in the Beeb showed that Hamas rockets were going to population points, e.g. Tel Aviv and were largely prevented by this Iron Dome. Hamas target civilians, Israel attacks military targets and there is collateral.

To say that because Israeli defences are better and less are killed, therefore it means that they are proportionally more culpable coz they’re not dying as much is so devoid of logic it’s not even worth answering.

As for the chicken and egg situation – a two-state solution was offered to all parties in 1948 and Israel accepted it, i.e. that they would not have the whole area but the allocated land.

The Arab response was all out war.

The Israeli request is that they be allowed to live in peace. The Arab book and every Imam has them killing every last Jew, wherever they can be found and wiping Israel off the map. That’s it. That’s the beginning and end of it, the alpha and omega.

    May I just add that Israel is a tolerant democracy? Arabs, Christians & Muslims may live in Israel without persecution, unlike the intolerant surrounding countries where Christians & Jews are in constant danger.

      ….and that includes the intolerant West Bank and Gaza Strip. Hardly any Christians left in Bethlehem now…….

    And yet……. Israel’s ‘sovereign space’ is itself a false construct, imposed remotely on the resident community by a guilt-ridden international authority as some sort of recompense for the holocaust.

    And now that the descendants of those old residents are finally accumulating the wealth, education and political power to respond to that imposition, we see the results.

    The Palestinians are wrong to launch indiscriminate rockets at civilian areas, the Israelis are wrong to plant yet more settlements in someone else’s back-yard. The UN was wrong to gift that land to Israel in 1948, Israel has been wrong to ignore UN Resolutions for decades with impunity.

    There’s lots of wrongs here – with the additional wrong of Tony Blair as some sort of peace envoy, like putting King Herod in charge of Mothercare – and precious few rights.

    But who can define a solution to something so engrained into the psyche of all the players ? It makes Northern Ireland look like a kids’ tea-party.

    As I commented over on Atlas Shrugs:-

    Judges 9:45

    All that day Abimelek pressed his attack against the city until he had captured it and killed its people. Then he destroyed the city and scattered salt over it.

    Netanyahu should take his stance from Abimelek, send the heavy armour in and level this seething sore upon Israel’s wounds, and not take a heap of notice of any of the ‘international opprobrium’ for the time it takes to kill every Hamas fanatic.

    Certainly not an easy one and probably, like the Balkans, the major flashpoint from where MAD will arise.
