Maj. Gen. Benny Gantz, IDF Chief of Staff, warned Israel's enemies Wednesday that any attempt to harm Israel will be met with a painful response.

Unless, of course, some stinkin' anarchist breaks your fingers. Then you better not wack him with your rifle. Just stand there defenseless. And if IDF wakes you up in the middle of the night to tear down your house or evict you from the building you paid for fair and square. Don't you dare lift a hand to the Druze soldiers we send to do our dirty work, and who might be man-handling your still drowzy kids. Just stand there defenseless. Holocaust day, when the hypocrites come out to mouth empty platitudes.
