Mr. Stephen J. Kohn (of the previous blog entry) is completely right. And the reason why? Because the world thinks Jewish blood is cheap! The world believes it and the Arabs re-enforce it every time by calling their terrorism “resistance” and Israel’s response as “agression.” And the liberal media buys it — lock, stock and barrel! It’s about time Israel said to the world “To hell with you…it’s not your citizens dying…it’s not your cities being hit by rockets indiscriminately!” I wonder what the EU would say if it was Paris that got hit by Katushya rockets today instead of Haifa? Or London? Or Berlin? They’d probably cry and wonder how they could appease their Muslim attackers and ask them nicely not to do it again. The world is spineless.

It took World War II for the world to be willing to recognize evil for what it was. For some reason no one has the stomach to risk the idea that perhaps that same evil has finally resurfaced among the Arabs.
Hitler’s final revenge is that he sowed the seeds of his brand of anti-semitism and hatred in another corner of the world and now it’s festering presence can no longer be ignored.

I recently saw the movie Syriana and Matt Damon’s character has a wonderful line he says to this Arab prince:

“You want to know what the business world thinks of you? We think a hundred years ago you were living out here in tents in the desert chopping each others heads off, and that’s exactly where you’re gonna
be in another hundred.”

Without their oil the world wouldn’t give two thoughts to the Arabs. There may be moderates among them but they’re few and far between. I can certainly understand their unwillingness to speak out as it would risk their lives. I do not fault them for that…but the rest of the Arab world is full of uneducated, poor masses…and while that doesn’t help them at all it is NOT the fault of Israel. The Arabs (and especially their leaders) need to do some serious, introspective, soul-searching and if they want to be taken seriously. They’re like little kids…unfortunately the toys that they have are more dangerous.

The fact of the matter is that Israel is doing what it should have done quite a while ago. When you are punched, you punch back…and you make sure that you give a bloody nose! For those who remember Sean Connery’s role in The Untouchables, you might remember this memorable quote from his character Jim Malone:

“You wanna know how you do it? Here’s how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way, and that’s how you get Capone! Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that?”

Just replace Chicago with Middle East and Capone with Arabs and you see that this is apropos for the day.
