As the Stomach Turns: Israel versus the Arab World

Here’s the latest news out of the Middle East regarding Israel’s bombing of “Palestinian” targets. This whole scenario reminds me of my school days. You know: every school has that one student others like to pick on. Many bullies have their time with him, kicking, punching, pushing, shoving, tripping, threatening, humiliating. And then finally the bullied student fights back. He bloodies the nose of one bully. All the other bullies get outraged and decide to retaliate.

Reminds me of the Middle East. All the surrounding Arab countries practically expect Israel to endlessly tolerate homicide bombings*, air strikes, threats and so forth.

After the end of a six-month cease fire, Hamas has been bombarding Israel daily with air strikes. So, Israel decides it’s had enough and retaliates. Among the places they’ve bombed was a rocket launching site conveniently located in a civilian area. Think about it: build the rocket site near some expendable civilians (makes me wonder if they’re of a different sect of Islam) and when Israel bombs it, whine about the evil Jews are killing innocent civilians.

*Sorry, but they’re not “suicide bombings”. A person who commits suicide kills themselves. A person who kills others is committing homicide.

    To all the people who sleep safely in their beds at night and have the audacity to criticize the Israeli government, this is for you:
    None of you spoke in the past 8 years when rockets and bombs fell in southern Israeli cities, causing death and damage without any provocation on our part.
    What you need to understand are two things-
    First of all, there is no functioning government in Gaza. The Hamas took over and they are running the show. The Hamas, in case you didn’t know, is a terror organization. Just like Al-kaida and Hezbollah. Israel is dealing with terror organizations all around its borders. Not with governments. And not with civilians. We have nothing against the Palestinians. Only the terrorists.
    The second thing you need to know is that the Hamas is a very cynical organization which uses innocent women and children to fight Israel. They launch their missals from civilian’s houses, not from open fields or military camps, and when the Israeli army wants to destroy those missals launchers- sometimes innocent people die.
    Ask yourself- what would you do if your life was constantly under threat? Look at the map. Maybe that will help you grasp our geographic situation.
    The purpose of the Israeli army is to defend. Not attack.
    So next time you think about how miserable and poor the Palestinians are, and how powerful and evil the Israelis are- think again.

    Haha, mr. Shirojordan is copy-pasting his comment on every blog talking about Gaza. I will respond to you again on this blog.

    poor shirajordan, if you knew.
    these rocket bombs you’re talking about are nothing in front of all you did to us. 999 of 1000 victims of this war are palestinians. and the thing is your medias and the world medias don’t show this, publicity is for Israel.
    I know both sides are wrong, yes I know we’re not angels, but don’t you put us on the same level! Israel is committing a genocide, you should be ashamed of defending this.
    you say you’re just against terrorists, not the palestinian civilians? it’s funny, you’re like that israeli guy that said this morning on tv they wanted to make the bomb attacks in gaza the more delicate possible. They killed more than 300 innocent people and wounded hundreds and hundreds in just a day. so, who did you say was the terrorist, again?
    I’ve seen and lived so horrible things, things a child shouldn’t have to face, ever. and i’ve experienced the thing in the two sides, but i can tell you you’re very far from the reality. truth will come and you will know, you will see. just wait. Merry christmas.
