Many, including members of my own family, have questioned why I support Israel so wholeheartedly in recent weeks, but never have been more sure of my support for them than today. The arrogant and abhorrent leadership of Hamas have come out from their ratholes revelling in what they term Israels ‘defeat’ and their ‘victory’. Only such a wicked and barbaric organisation like Hamas could possibly see the death and destruction all around them and proclaim it a victory!
I have heard no such arrogance from Israel. They went in to Gaza to neutralise Hamas, an organisation which refuses to recognise their right to exist and wishes only to inflict murder and terror on their people. When their objective was complete they left. They had no desire to occupy Gaza. No desire to kill its population. Their only desire was to eliminate what is nothing more than a terrorist organisation bent not on peace but war with Israel.
Hamas, as I have mentioned before, delight in the death and destruction of Gaza and its people because it furthers their cause. That is the victory they speak of. They poked the lion and it responded and inflicted massive carnage on the region. However this situation is not a numbers game, the number of deaths and casulties inflicted does not represent ‘the right and wrong’ as many crudely assume. It is the intentions that matter. Israels intention is to protect her people from over 7 years of sustained rockets attacks, numbering thousands, that are intended to kill maim and destory, not its military, but its people and their homes.
However many have died in these rocket attacks is frankly irrelevant. Each one had the potential, and the militants desire, to kill Israeli civilians. 80% of the deaths in Gaza over the last few weeks have been militants which considering the scale of the offesnive is impressive. The militants they killed are the scum of the earth who, given the chance, would have done far worse to the Israelis. That is what we have to keep in mind. Of course the death of civilians is tragic and regrettable. Im sure noone more than the Israelis recognises this having suffered from it for so long. But it is inevitable when your enemy, rather than come out and fight, hides deep within civilian quaters using them as shields to cover their cowardice.
Im sure many of you will ignore what ive said. Most people just look at the Biased Broadcasting Corporations version of events without using their own initiative and imagination. The media get off on stories like this. Bland stories don’t catch viewers or sell papers. Of course they have to ‘jazz’ it up a bit for the viewers but I ask you to look at the facts not the fiction. Hamas are the wreckers in our midst. Not Israel. They willfully kill civilians not Israel and they want war not Israel.
