Never give in to them…


I was beyond appalled tonight to discover that a 13 year old boy has been hacked to death with an axe by a Palestinian attacker whilst a 7 year old boy is in a critical condition. You may find the fact that I have used the word ‘hacked’ a little disturbing, as do I, however the fact remains that such a shocking tone of phrase is an accurate and abhorrent reflection of this situation and a reminder of the enemy we face. I say ‘we’ because I am a passionate vocal and continued supporter of Israel and believe that Britain should stand by her side against this continued Palestinian aggression however much the liberal media might like to pin everything on Israel. I find the methods and motives of many Palestinian militants, and indeed politicians, beyond reproach and have always argued that their methods to achieve their ends are barbaric and inhumane. In simple terms I believe these people are sub-human and should be treated as such.

The liberals amongst you as always will call for restraint, will claim these attackers are not reflective of the majority of the Palestinian’s searching for a Palestinian state and I might be inclined to agree with you. Indeed not all Palestinians are like these wicked wicked creatures but that moderate majority have become silent even subservient to the will of this ever increasing cruel minority. The fact is we in the West have a duty to defend Israel in its fight against these militants. While they remain, Israel, Palestine indeed the world can never be free or peaceful. So long as we sit back and allow these wicked individuals an ounce of political legitimacy the peace process hasn’t got a hope in hell. We have to root them out and deal with them in the only language they understand: brutality.

The military wing of Islamic Jihad and Imad Mughniyeh Group have already admitted they carried out the attack and as usual basked in their own self righteous glory at the murder of this helpless child. Unless Hamas and other Palestinian political organisations come out completely against this action I would say Israel is justified in what ever methods it deploys in order to rid us of these cancers. There is no justification what so ever to accept such an attack on ones so young. Although in a curious way I hope Hamas and other Palestinian political groups do not come out against the killling because then perhaps the world can truly face up to the type of people we are fighting; people who make no distinction between man, woman and child, people who deserve to rot in hell.

  2. Yes, Israel is a saintly god, despite killing a good few thousand Palestinian civillians (with only loosing 4 of their own through Hamas rockets).

    So please Dan never ever again say “In simple terms I believe these people are sub-human and should be treated as such.” it will offend a hell of a lot of people.

  3. This is nothing more than vitriolic, far right, bile, not at all dissimilar from the British National Party’s policy regarding Northern Ireland, though stated in notable stronger terms in this case.
    Terrorism is the employment of violence and fear to further political aims, is it not? What you are suggesting is nothing more than that: “We have to root them out and deal with them in the only language they understand: brutality” – violence, fear and political aims. In order to “root them out” an invasion of Palestine would be necessary and so in the process of “rooting them out” you would rip apart a nation, for it would be a guerilla war, urban areas torn apart in the relentless search for one’s enemies, with all the civilian deaths that would entail. There is no discriminate warfare, no “smart bomb” and no war, especially against guerilla fighters, that is not also against civilians.
    What you also fail to understand is your strategy against Palestinian terrorists will only serve to further their cause. Brutality, widespread destruction and a war where thousands, possibly ten of thousands, of civilians will die and believe it or not when people are subjected to such things a greater number than was ever thought possible want to fight back, and just to fan the flames you’d suggest sending in foreign, western, troops too?
    “…these people are sub-human and should be treated as such.” I believe this section from Carter’s Nobel Lecture basically summarises your logic, as well as many others:
    “In order for us human beings to commit ourselves personally to the inhumanity of war, we find it necessary first to dehumanize our opponents… . Once we characterize our adversaries as beyond the scope of God’s mercy and grace, their lives lose all value. We deny personal responsibility when we plant land mines and, days or years later, a stranger to us — often a child – is crippled or killed. From a great distance, we launch bombs or missiles with almost total impunity, and never want to know the number or identity of the victims.”
    Yes, the brutal murder of a child is an atrocity and one that cannot go unpunished, but what you are suggesting would result in a great many more atrocities, a vast escalation in violence and the utter destruction of a nation.

  4. I have some sympathy for what you say Daniel. Israel is often portrayed as the villain of the piece and, though far from blameless, it is by no means the pariah that it is made out to be.
    As you say, there is no justification whatsoever for attacks on the young. By the same token, however, you must take the same stance when Israeli aircraft launch bombs that hit schools, community centers and civilian areas and children are among the victims.
    Your use of the term sub-human is, however, disturbing.

  5. Israel is in clear defiance of several UN resolutions with regard to its policy of building settlements. True. Israel has used disproportionate force when conducting a well publicised policy of pre-emptive strikes, which has led to the death and injury of many Palestinians. True. Israel needs to show more restraint and regard for the human rights of Palestinians. True.

    But it is equally true that the Palestinian Authority represses homosexuality and ignores the teachings of the Koran and Bible in its treatment of women. For all its faults, Israel is a liberal democratic state in the Western sense. Hamas and Hezbollah have refused to accept a two-state solution for they do not recognise the state of Israel, which they count aming their professed aims, the destruction of the State of Israel. This is despite the United Nations declaring that a two state resolution is the way forward. Hezbollah and Hamas have also not done enough to subdue terrorism within the areas that they command.

    I am not in anyway agreeing with the post or condoning the language used by this poster. The term ‘sub-human’ is not only wrong but dangerous in that it diminishes responsibility. This person also demonstrates political immaturity in that this person tries to maintain the obvious, that the killing of a child is wrong, and linking it with foreign policy.

    It is not really important in my mind who is and is not to blame or more at fault; Israel or Palestine. What matters is progres on the Middle East question and it is clear that BOTH sides are blocking that by their policies towards each other.
