And not just nursery schools, of course, but elementary schools, as well.
We need to bomb schools and hospitals.
It is exceedingly important that Israel bomb the holy crap out of hospitals... and nursing homes.
We need to bomb nursery schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. Wherever people are the weakest in Gaza, that is what we must bomb.
And when I say "bomb" I do not mean one little bomb. What I mean is flatten.
Of course, were it not for the fact that so many Arabs believe they have some Allah-ordained right to kill Jews then Israel would not need to bomb nursery schools and hospitals and nursing homes or any place else where Hamas uses old people and sick people and women and children as a means to defend themselves and their rockets.
Israelis uses rockets to defend their women and children.
Hamasniks uses women and children to defend their rockets.
The bottom line is this, however, if Arabs don't want war they should not wage war.
So long as the Arab majority insists upon bombing the tiny Jewish minority in that part of the world then the Jews of the Middle East are going to defend themselves and what that means is fighting back and what that means is dead Arabs, including children, because civilian populations ALWAYS suffer in war.
Furthermore, given the fact that the brave fighting men of Hamas love to hide their identities behind ski masks and use women and children to defend rockets, it is frankly amazing that there are not thousands of more dead Arabs lying around the streets and rubble of Gaza.
There are two reasons that this is so.
The first reason, of course, is that Jewish self-defense is entirely anathema to so much of the world community which always pressures Israel never to defend itself. They do not mind when Arabs kill Arabs or Arabs kill Jews or Arabs kill Christians, but Jewish self-defense is traditionally considered unacceptable among both Arabs and secular westerners and when the Jews do defend themselves we are always accused of aggression.
The second reason is Jewish ethics, morality, and self-reflection. There is virtually nothing in contemporary Jewish culture that justifies the stomping the hell out of anyone for almost any reason and Jews are exceedingly reluctant fighters.
Unfortunately, Israel is in no position not to defend itself.
Unless one thinks that the Jewish people are subhumans that Arabs have every right to bomb then you cannot strenuously complain about Jewish self-defense. Southern Israel was bombed for years and our western-left friends, who claim to be the stewards of western morality and universal human rights, did not care one whit until finally the Jews stood up in our own self-defense.
I say that we drain the swamp and absolutely eliminate Hamas and if the western-left does not like it, too bad.
But they're not 'waging war,' though, Mike! They're resisting! Haven't you been paying attention?!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I would really love to hear under what circumstances the "Israel can defend itself in theory, but not in practice" crowd would actually not object to Israeli self-defense? We know thousands of terror missiles being shot at Israeli civilians doesn't qualify, and we know that uncovering plans for a massive slaughter of civilians using an extensive tunnel network draws a yawn, as well. What would it take, really?
"An immediate and unconditional ceasefire ending Israel's assault on Hamas is a "clear strategic imperative" to Israel, US President Barack Obama told Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu in a phone call on Sunday."ReplyDelete
IOW, Obama wants to allow Hamas an opportunity to regroup and rearm, ensuring this shit goes on forever. America and the rest of the worls will of course finance the whole thing. Lovely.
Oh, it's a 'clear strategic imperative,' alright. Just not for Israel. No more two year hudnas. Hamas needs to be ended.Delete
0.5Kt ground burst middle of Gaza; about 13,500 people killed, 26,000 injured (far fewer than an airnburst)ReplyDelete
I favor Hamas' clear and unconditional surrender.ReplyDelete
There is no disproportionality until that war aim is met... if it were a war aim, which it is not, unfortunately.
"It's become quite clear that those who support Hamas want genocide and the complete destruction of Israel. On Friday, Christine Habib, a Lebanese reporter who, according to her Facebook profile, is a "Senior Reporter at Al Jadeed TV," issued a tweet calling for Iran to send nuclear weapons to Hamas for use against Israel, assuming the Islamic country has weapons to send.ReplyDelete
"#Iran should send its nuclear weapons, if they exist, to #Hamas," she tweeted. Her message sparked a great deal of controversy on Twitter."
Trudy, while I admire your sentiment, I'm thinking that a small series of 10kt neutron bombs will solve the problem definitively!ReplyDelete
And what problems would it create in return?
I recognize, of course, that you guys are joking.
You are joking, aren't you?
Of course Mike!ReplyDelete
