Skip to comments.One thought on the war in Gaza
Posted on 07/31/2014 5:12:09 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Perhaps Im missing something in all of the outcry over the Israeli action in Gaza, but what, really, is Israel supposed to do? Whats the right response to having a country on your border that sponsors openly rocket attacks on your territory, and has built a network of tunnels under the border and a whole terror infrastructure from which its operatives can enter the territory and attack your citizens? How would we respond if Mexico did this not just some rogue band of Mexican drug lords, but the Mexican people, acting through their elected representatives? Or to make the analogy closer, what if it were the Navajo Nation, from inside the borders of their territory in New Mexico. How would we respond? How would any country (other than Israel, I guess) be expected to respond?
War is ghastly; innocent people get slaughtered for no damn reason at all, its horrible to see and to contemplate; and whose heart does not go out to the parents of all the kids who have been killed? But I cant get my mind around the notion that anyone other than Hamas bears the full responsibility for this horror.
That one of their demands that helped spark this crisis was that Israel open up the border with Gaza Hamas rejected one of the early Egyptian ceasefire proposals because they insisted that Israel open up the border first borders on the absurd, in a particularly cruel way. I could imagine any number of demands Hamas could make of the Israelis, demands that it is not inconceivable the Israelis could actually agree to: that Israel pay them money for reparations, or build them an airport, or support their entry into the WTO and the UN....

You are supposed to write them a letter.
I usually do not watch the national news but have been catching bits and pieces recently. One thing which is pretty obvious yet I bet most people don’t even think about it is how they start each report on Gaza.
In nearly every case, they start their story with video of Palestinian children, either dead, injured, or running in fear.
You are right, just about everyone is upset at the sight of a child injured etc. What needs to be understood is the Palestinians are totally responsible for these.
Gaza was supposed to be demilitarized.
Clinton signed that Treaty worth its weight in feces.
Obama KNEW weapons and tunnels were there.
When did Hillary know?
When did they first arrange to use US taxpayer money for
the extermination of Jews worldwide?
When did they decide to lie about it (like Benghazi)?
Finish the war with Hamas and get those tunnels destroyed and filled in.
We probably would send them money and grant the shooters amnesty.
And liberals in America are fully behind Hamas.
Pretty clear stuff.
The writer neglects to mention the last 1400 years and the root of the oppressive regimes which have subjected large masses of the global population to illiteracy and poverty. Most of the turd world is dominated by the advanced and progressive 7th century philosophies of Mohammet.
Don't even have to go that far.. if the country thousands of miles away refuses to rid themselves of the leader you don't like.. well. bomb 'em! bomb 'em all!
Belgrade bombing defying bill clinton and albright
I don't recall many MSM employees publishing photos of damage done to Belgrade and its children. The Israelis should claim that Clinton and Albright are advising them.
What, really, is Israel supposed to do?
Democrat Party: Die.
Unless they're Jewish children. Yes, MSM concentrates on showing Palestinian children. Rarely if ever of Jewish Israeli children being maimed or killed. I have seen explicit photos of dead Israeli kids and babies, but not in the mainstream news media. And those dead were by Palestinians who sneaked into their bedrooms in Israel and butchered them. The Palestinian terrorists are cold-blooded baby-killers, but you wouldn't know that from watching national news programs.
I haven’t seen the pictures of the Israeli children and don’t want to but I know you are correct. I have seen the works of those Islamic butchers and I don’t want to see any more.
The media basically makes news, or at least tries to and usually they succeed.
I've seen them in news outlets outside the U.S.A.
European, Asian, Middle East, lots of news sources unafraid to show what's going on in the world. What is most troubling, is that those outside sources show news events happening in the U.S.A. that we can't see in the MSM here!
“........ Whats the right response to having a country on your border that sponsors openly rocket attacks on your territory”.......
Could be worse, it could be millions of their citizens sneaking in (illegally) and occupying your entire country without firing a shot. I wonder what the U.S. would do if they did fire shots at us.......ah, never mind, that too has already happened and still nothing........crickets.
