Let’s say Al-Qaeda or Hezbollah or some other Islamic terrorist group sends a rocket into an American Army base. Let’s say 57 out of 69 U.S. soldiers at an Army base are wounded as they sleep, and five are killed.
Would the U.S. just sit back and take it? Or would we start attacking the mountains of Pakistan and maybe–if we did the right thing–the palaces of Riyadh?
Or would America “show restraint”?
HELL NO. Nor should it. So why are we asking Israel to do the same in the face of such an attack by Palestinians, yesterday? And why are we asking Israel to act in the embarrassing way we once acted when our troops were attacked in Beirut while they slept?
Just before the Jewish New Year, Palestinians sent a rocket into an Israeli army base near Ashkelon, north of the Gaza Border, early Tuesday morning. With at least 57 soldiers wounded and five dead, it was also the highest casualty toll of any single Palestinian rocket attack.
So what does America do? U.S. officials urged Israel to “show restraint,” fearing it could jeopardize “new peace efforts with the Palestinians”.
HUH?! What “peace efforts”? This is a never ending war. Restraint is for idiots. And dead people. Who makes peace with these barbarians as they are committing mass murder?
America would never again take a bombing like the one in Beirut in the early ’80s, without a response. Why should Israel?
