Victor on Israel and the World Press

Jihadists are fond of comparing their despicable, cowardly actions to the exploits of legendary heros like Saladin. What a cruel joke. He wouldn't let these whackjobs clean his stables.

The latest heroic exploit of this sub-human cult was the murder of defenseless religious students.
Israel needs to recognize that practicing tactical restraint will not earn them accolades from The UN, European appeasers and most of the world media. They tried that in Lebanon. Reuters responded by staging photos of bombed ambulances and the same,fat, wailing Arab woman posing in front of any derelict building they could find. Newspapers around the world ran the photos.
Currently, families of suicide bombers are showered with gifts by grateful neighbours honouring their heroic children. When those same neighbours suffer devastating casualties in response to every suicide bomb or rocket, the worship of these so-called heros will cease.
Forget tactical restraint, Israel. It neither works nor does it garner world support.

According to many Canadians I've spoken with, Israel & America are mostly to blame for all of the violence in the Middle East. And according to the righteous UN, anything more than a "measured response" by Israel is improper.

Such views both sadden and sicken me but I deeply believe that Victor is in the minority in his views. :-(

Rafe Mair is in on it too.
The guy couldn't be more anti-Israel.
"The United States has squandered many opportunities to have better relations with countries like Iran. But its biggest sin has been its unqualified support of Israel. ...
The plain fact is that Israeli Arabs will soon outnumber the Jews and one can only imagine what will happen then. For one thing, Israel will be demonstrated to be something they have always denied – a theocracy. ..."

Fish farms, asskissing the CBC after years of declaring how he despised 'em, and bashing Israel.
The guy has three routines.

I agree with you David. The only proper response to this for Israel is to fully defend herself and retaliate against these nutbars who love death. Perhaps Gaza should be given over to Egypt, and then that country would have to take responsibility for its Arab brothers in Palestine. As Golda Meir said... it will only end when Arabs love their children more than they hate the Jews. And it is sad to see such bias in the mainstream media against Israel, which in the long run only serves to perpetuate Palestinian atrocities by legitimizing their victimhood. I despair of people getting their history lessons on Israel from the media and actually believing it.

Egypt doesn't seem too interested in taking care of their Palestinian brethren and sistren at all.

"DEBKAfile Special Report

February 27, 2008, 1:41 PM (GMT+02:00)

On the sixth day of the Palestinian surge out of Gaza into northern Sinai, Egyptian intelligence is discovering that, far from being chaotic, it was minutely planned by the fundamentalist Hamas group which rules the Gaza Strip.

According to DEBKAfile’s military sources, each of the estimated half a million Gazans in flight, one-third of the total population, received a $300 grant, which accounts for the shopping spree they could suddenly afford. Hamas was therefore willing to spend $150 million on a maneuver for seizing control of an enclave in northern Sinai.

Egyptian border troops were forced to stand aside by this mass of surging humanity. Dozens were injured by gunmen shooting from inside the mob. Early Monday, Jan. 28, Cairo deployed a border guard brigade in the northern Sinai town of El Arish, to hold the line against the spread of the Palestinian tide into the largest town in the peninsula.

It is calculated that if the Palestinians take over El Arish, they will use it as a springboard to advance on Egypt proper.

Egyptian forces have in the last 24 hours, apprehended 30 Palestinians on their way to the Suez Canal armed with weapons, explosives and devices for monitoring Egyptian and Israeli security communications, and a second group heading for the unfenced 220-km Egyptian-Israeli border.

DEBKAfile’s military sources also report that Cairo has, without making a public announcement, clamped an economic blockade on El Arish, closing down shops, hotels, restaurants and gas pumps, to make the town less attractive to the roving Palestinians than their own towns in Gaza. ..."

Re the DEBKAfile report: Curiouser and curiouser! I trust that people know who Hamas is financed by? Iran.

It's commonplace for many over privileged and under informed Westerners to assume that all Muslims in the Middle East are a unified force, all of whom hate America and Israel. It's much more complicated than that.

If you choose to believe that the governments of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and many other countries aren't deathfully scared of the nutcases currently running Iran then you are either ignorant, a fool, or both.

PelaLusa said..."I trust that people know who Hamas is financed by? Iran."

Indeed, I should really have included the headline with the quote, as some people don't follow links:
"Hamas backers Saudi Arabia and Tehran Step into Gaza Crisis"
Iran, and George Bush's dear, dear friends the Saudis. :roll:
