Israel's Defense Minister says: 'IDF needs to be moral'

Peretz's comments come in light of the continuation of military operations in south Lebanon and diplomatic efforts to find a solution for the crisis, mainly at the United Nations Security Council. "A military confrontation is not sufficient," Peretz stressed. "It is a tool that creates a room for maneuver for reaching the best political deal." Peretz said that Israel's biggest problem is the fact that over million Israelis are in shelters and the army's duty is to allow northern communities to return to their lives as soon as possible.

Who the hell's side you on any way, the Hezbozos?

Amir Peretz is the current Defense Minister and Labour Party leader in Israel.

Why doesn't he just say Israel should commit suicide? At least that would be more accurate and honest.

I hardly see where the IDF needs to retain a level of morality any greater than that of the "Orkin Man" when dealing with these stinking terrorists.

What good will it do for Israel to fight a so called morally correct PC war (let's face it, they'll never win the hearts and minds of the Liberal MSM), when waiting behind that curtain is a nuclear armed Iran? Syria/Hezbollah is Iran's catspaw, and once Iran has nukes, they really start making demands. The Arab world will declare victory, the US is in retreat. Dancing in the streets. Get out of the Middle East, bow down to worldwide Islamification or we'll nuke you. How fast will our allies desert us? At the speed of light.

Your are either us or against us. Attacking any part of Israel would indicate your a terrorist sympathizer or a gullible rube to believe Peretz is throwing out more than chaff.

Being moral is to obey the rules of war. That means shooting any person not in uniform--man, woman or child-- who points a gun.

No one asked the people who died in the Twin Towers if they were moral or not.

I know damn well whose side I'm on and you take it to the bank that it's not the Hezbos nor is it any one else BUT the Israelis. That said, I also know damn well who Peretz is, as do my many civilian and military friends In Israel. My statement about Peretz stands!!

You're an idiot.

Attacking leftists like Peretz who is politically and morally incompetent to lead the military IS SUPPORTING ISRAEL.

There's only two sides in war, the enemy and us.

A divided house does not stand and neither does your traitorous slander that aims to dichotomize Israel and comfort the enemy.

Logic like yours breeds infighting, division, and polarization...you work for Iran would be my guess.

Then you stand for the enemy by aiding them with slanderous attacks on Israel's leadership.

Dear Rainintheface,

Thank you very very much for your fervent support of Israel.

I do want to wish you the very best of luck when, as seems obvious, you rush off to join the IDF. One word of advice: all the sounds you'll hear when you get there are real so try to keep your head down.

Again, good luck and goodbye.

Your friend,

Postman
