Israel Takes On Terrorism Before US Appeasers Take Control Of Congress

Published by at 11:21 am under All General Discussions


I have been holding off on commenting on the Israeli actions in Gaza against Hamas, primarily because the handwringing from the Surrendercrats on the left has just been too embarrassing even to discuss. I tend to view these events similar to how Alan Dershowitz recently described the situation:

Israel’s decision to take military action against Hamas rocket attacks targeting its civilian population has been long in coming. … Over the past four years, Palestinian terrorists – in particular, Hamas and Islamic Jihad – have fired more than 2,000 rockets at this civilian area, which is home to mostly poor and working-class people.

The rockets are designed exclusively to maximize civilian deaths, and some have barely missed schoolyards, kindergartens, hospitals, and school buses. But others hit their targets, killing more than a dozen civilians since 2001, including in February 2008 a father of four who had been studying at the local university. These anticivilian rockets have also injured and traumatized countless children.

The firing of rockets at civilians from densely populated civilian areas is the newest tactic in the war between terrorists who love death and democracies that love life. The terrorists have learned how to exploit the morality of democracies against those who do not want to kill civilians, even enemy civilians.

Picture your family members being harassed, threatened, injured or killed as they simply tried to live their lives. Maybe on the way to school they are attacked. Maybe they just miss being killed shopping for food. Maybe bullets fly by them playing in the playground. And further imagine all this coming from one street in your neighborhood, where some really evil criminals live. Imagine the police doing nothing and you have to protect your family and do so by trying to avoid the street, staying away from the killers. 

And then imagine you have to physically fight off an attack, and the police finally show up and claim YOU are guilty of committing a violent crime by attacking your attackers.

That is the twisted world view of the liberal left and all those criticizing Israel. The Islamo Fascists openly cry for the destruction of Israel and Jews, yet the world looks the other way as Nazism 2.0 washes its filth over mankind. I applaud Israel’s actions and wish them God Speed in their hunt for Hamas criminals. Right now the Israelis are in Gaza hunting down terrorists one by one.

Witnesses said the Israeli forces had punched across Gaza, bisecting its northern and southern parts, and had taken over certain strategic areas, including what the military has described as rocket launching sites.

More here.  I am also of the opinion that Israel took this step prior to Obama taking office because they felt they had to act before Democrats took over the reigns of power. Not so much because of anything Obama has said directly (though is plans to sit down and talk with that minor threat called ‘Iran’ was a disturbing combination of policy statements), but more because he appears to be too weak to stand up to the liberal Democrats (or I should say Surrendercrats) now running Congress. I believe Israel realized they had to move before the new US leadership put barriers up to any action.

It would not be the first time that the impression that America is receding from the fight against evil has resulted in fighting.  Every time we appear weak, distracted or unwilling to fight the stress points in the world erupt. This should be of no surprise really. Our focus keeps the lid on independent actions. Release that focus, that pressure, and the wounds start bleeding again.

Democrats and the liberal left are moaning for the damage Hamas has brought onto itself. It is a pathetic act of bleeding heart idiocy. While America may have tired of the War on Terror under Bush (probably thinking we have sent a strong enough signal of how we will respond), the country has not become sympathetic to terrorists. They expect terrorists to learn the lesson, not become causes for American largesse and support.

Anyone who thinks America will chose Hamas over Israel is truly naive. Israelis do not raise their children to be suicide bombers against the evil West. It might seem like a minor detail to some thick heads, but it is a core difference to most people.

    Israel should never have left Gaza. This was a huge mistake. They should have relocated the Gazans to the refugee camps they so love to live in on the other side of Israel and take them out of the main body of Israel itself.

    Time magazine is mainly responsible for the rampant Palestinian support by liberals. I read an article some years ago bewailing the fate of the Palestinians. I felt sorry for them muself until I remembered how cruel they were and how suicide bombers came amongst civilians and blew them up every few days. I lost all sympathy for them then. But liberals will always be on the wrong side of history.

    Ah, the appeasers have been in control of Congress for two years. The appeasers will control the White House soon.

    Thanks for posting the Dershowitz article AJ – one of the most thoughtful.

    The Code Pink protest started before Obama arrived at the Hay Adams Hotel today.

    palestinian terrorists get so much support solely because Israeli is a Jewish state. It still stuns me how history is re-written to demonize Jews, and how so many fail to realize that Israel will fight to the last Jew standing.

    But, pretty amazing to watch a proxy war where Israel fights in part for the Egypt/Saudi axis because Sunni Hamas is now a client of Shi’a Iran.

    You do have to wonder why libtards always turn into appeasers before they get clobbered.
