Posted on 07/16/2014 9:11:28 PM PDT by Olog-hai
European Union (EU) leaders on Wednesday condemned the firing of rockets into Israel while urging the Israel to act proportionately and Hamas to agree to a ceasefire, AFP reports.
Voicing great concern over continued violence in Israel and Gaza, EU leaders said the bloc condemns the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel and the indiscriminate targeting of civilians.
Israel has the right to protect its population (but) in doing so it must act proportionately and ensure the protection of civilians at all times, a European Union statement added.

Why doesn’t the EU do something constructive like warn the governments of Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Ecuador and El Salvador to stop the violence and start caring for “the children” of those countries instead of throwing them onto the backs of U.S. taxpayers?
There is a great article about the idiocy of the “moral high ground” article by Sultan Knish at http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2014/07/winning-moral-high-ground-is-losers-game.html
Translation = Don’t kill so many or, more of you have to die.
Wouldn’t “proportionality” lie in shooting the exact number of missles into gaza that the pali-idiots already shot randomly into Israel? The EU proves that antisemitism lives.
Their argument always centers around the lack of deaths of Israelis from Hamas missiles. Never mind that Israelis have to run for shelter with a minute to a minute and a half warning.
It’s as if the E.U. and other apologists think that it should be okay for Hamas to send thousands of rockets in, so long as only a few Israelis actually die.
Let me ask this. If a person is shooting a weapon at you from fifty feet and is missing or only hits you in the leg, isn’t it disproportionate to kill them? Of course it is. And of course there isn’t a person around who wouldn’t kill the other person before they were killed.
Of course, the E.U. would step in to condemn the killer, if it was a Jew defending themselves.
And this is exactly what is taking place here. Each of these missiles has the potential to kill. You wouldn’t find moss growing under my feet, if I could take the asshole out who was firing them into my town.
Israel can kill every stinking terrorist they wish to IMO, as long as they have been found to be shooting missiles off. And as for collateral damage, when the Palestinians get sick enough of watching their loved ones die, perhaps they’ll shoot the Hamas players themselves, and protect their families by doing so.
The EU is nothing but socialist trash, the only thing the EU is good at is destroying countries and playing the race card.
I’m all for proportionality.
Hamas has fired around 6000 explosive missiles into Israel over the several years.
Israel has fired around 1000 in the same period, so Israel has really got to hustle to catch up with HAMAS
Well Israel could start indiscriminantly lobbing thousands of rockets into Gaza, like Hamas is doing ...
if the EU really wanted to do something useful, it would offer money to relocate Arabs in the land of Israel to Arab countries of their choosing (either their home lands or any others that can be persuaded to take their brothers in)
but of course this won’t happen, for the EU masters are too busy selling out their own home countries to the very same IslamoNazi world-wide movement... that keeps trying to murder Israel
“More than the other guy” is a proportion.
A thug threatens me and approaches me with a knife. I could draw my knife or I can use my 45.
Let’s get this straight. Without provocation launch a rocket attack on a country and when they respond and kick your ass cry for “proportionality”.
Here’s the deal: f-you die. You attack you die. Period. There is no proportionality, only victory. You attack you die.
To my way of thinking since Hamas has lobbed 8,000 missles at Israel since Israel gave away Gaza then Israel should lob an equal number into Gaza just to make it proportional
Also, since only 6 million Jews are in Arabia, and there are a billion plus Arabs, for every one Jew killed Israel could proportionally kill 15,000 Arabs.
Fire rockets indiscriminately into civilian areas.
