Skip to comments.Bizarro World logic vs. Israel

A cartoon image comes to mind. A mother breaks up a fight between two children, one of whom offers this defense: It started when he hit me back.
Remember that mentality when you hear Palestinians call Israel the aggressor. Hamas fired hundreds, perhaps 1,000 missiles into Israel from Gaza. They hit schools, apartment buildings, streets and vacant lots. The aim was to kill and, if not to kill, at least to terrorize. Mission accomplished.
Finally, Israel responded, first by droning the Hamas military leader, then by airstrikes against the terror groups ammunition dumps and rocket launchers, some intentionally placed near mosques and houses.
So, yes, naturally, the war started when Israel hit back.
Double standards are par for the course in the Mideast and all the Jew-hating salons from Turtle Bay to Paris. While the hatred is shouted with a clenched fist on the smoldering streets of Gaza City, equally absurd claims are made by striped-pants diplomats and left-leaning sophisticates who insist Israel is guilty of disproportionate force because it uses its huge military advantage.
Their argument moves the goal posts. They tacitly accept Israels right to respond, but only up to a point. No matter its losses, the Jewish state must never escalate because that would be unfair.

If the Palestinians in Gaza want peace all they have to do is stop fighting.
It’s that simple.
Maybe they are like the guy who wants to commit suicide but hasn’t got the balls, So he attacks a cop and waits for them to come and kill him.
Suicide by cop.
Hamas is only testing the Iron Dome for Iran and the Arab Spring countries.
There will be a new and ramped up attack soon. I would think they would fire from the Sinai instead of Gaza, but they seem to like the collateral damage in Gaza (good press).
By the same logic the police use disproportionate force against criminals...lol
But then logic does not run strong among the leftists.
BTW: The right-leaning part of the Israeli electorate is so pissed off at Netanyahu about the cease-fire that as things stand he has very little chance of retaining his job in the upcoming elections. Not that he deserves any better mind you but that will mean a leftist will become PM.
His only hope for redemption now is if Hamas breaks the cease-fire in a big way and he sends the IDF in and cleans the place out....these facts are surely on his mind now.
if it weren’t for double standards l liberals would have no standards at all
Right. Suicide by cop and then complain to the UN and press that you are the victim. What a bunch of %$@#@%&(*^&%#$ losers.
There is nothing in their koran about stop fighting the enemy. Enemy is a perception defined by a cleric. Never lose sight to the obvious teachings of the koran of perpetual enemies & it’s battle plan against non-Muslims. Another hideous fact since ALL messages have been delivered by Moh, every muslims sees their existence as a “test” & not a message to change their ways.
I agree. This was just testing the waters, getting ready for the Psalm 83 War. God bless Israel and PM Netanyahu.
One also has to take into consideration that anti-semitism is once again as trendy and chic as it was in the thirties, if not more so. And Israeli Apartheid Week probably deserves more thanks than any other individual or organisation for that development.
It’s one of those things that has shown me that the ultra-liberal “intelligentsia” really CAN suck and blow at the same time.
Some bubble-head on Fox just said “I hope the peace in the Middle East last forever this time.”
I love it! I hope you don’t mind, I’ve posted it in my FB page. Yeah, I know about FB, but many of my son’s friends, teammates and teachers are “friends” so I’ve been using it to spread the truth about the current events.
The Islamic Terrorists have an advantage. Their missiles are inexpensive when compared to the Iron Dome interceptors.
The Palestinians are a people bound together solely by hate. Theirs is a hatred that transcends their love of country, god, self and even of their children. If Israel were to vanish tomorrow, the Palestinian people would also perish for a lack of a reason to eat, breath or live. This is why even the Arab world refuses to embrace them except so far as they are useful to threaten and harass Israel. They will be outcasts regardless of what the Israelis do.
True...but the Israelis also have an advantage. Their weapons actually hit what they're aiming at.;-)
What would be funny is for the US to sell Israel a piece of US soil and let the ragheads have that place. Within 10 years the muzzies would have mostly killed each other off. They are nothing but savages bent on murder. It is the way of Mad Mo and his islam.
