Israel responds to Hamas rockets

Israel was once again forced to lauch attacks against Hamas targets in Gaza yesterday, and the international reaction is predictable.  Calls from around the globe for Israel to stop its “aggression” are the typical response of the international anti-Semitic coalition.

The same people, nations, and groups who so loudly decry Israel’s military response are those who sat idly by as Hamas militants fired rocket after rocket, mortar after mortar into Israel.  These one-way pacifists see nothing wrong with Palestinian (or other Arabs) killing Israeli civilians, but consider every Palestinian death an outrage.

President Bush has rightly stated that Israel has the right to defend itself against attacks by the terrorist organization that runs the Gaza Strip.  Unfortunately, among world leaders only Britain and Germany have joined Bush in recognizing Hamas’ role in initiating military action.  President-elect Barack Hussein Obama has yet to comment on the current conflict, and that leaves many wondering how he will address the issue once he occupies the White House later this month.

Israel has doubts about soon-to-be President Obama’s administration, even though he emphatically stated he’ll continue to support Israel’s right to defend itself.  With former President Carter consistently spewing anti-Israeli rhetoric and former President Clinton’s willingness to trade Israeli security for “peace”, it’s no wonder.

The fact is, until militant Palestinian factions and other Arab nations accept Israel’s existence as a reality, there will be no peace.  Nor should there be.

  1. To all the people who sleep safely in their beds at night and have the audacity to criticize the Israeli government, this is for you:
    None of you spoke in the past 8 years when rockets and bombs fell in southern Israeli cities, causing death and damage without any provocation on our part.
    What you need to understand are two things-
    First of all, there is no functioning government in Gaza. The Hamas took over and they are running the show. The Hamas, in case you didn’t know, is a terror organization. Just like Al-kaida and Hezbollah. Israel is dealing with terror organizations all around its borders. Not with governments. And not with civilians. We have nothing against the Palestinians. Only the terrorists.
    The second thing you need to know is that the Hamas is a very cynical organization which uses innocent women and children to fight Israel. They launch their missals from civilian’s houses, not from open fields or military camps, and when the Israeli army wants to destroy those missals launchers- sometimes innocent people die.
    Ask yourself- what would you do if your life was constantly under threat? Look at the map. Maybe that will help you grasp our geographic situation.
    The purpose of the Israeli army is to defend. Not attack.
    So next time you think about how miserable and poor the Palestinians are, and how powerful and evil the Israelis are- think again.
