Go Israel!!

When I was a kid, I loved Mad Magazine and even as an adult I appreciated the humor, insight, and wisdom of Dave Berg in Berg's Eye View which was a regular feature of the magazine and had some of the most true-to-life humor ever.

One strip of the feature that stands out in my mind was a strip where a little girl goes crying to her mother and says "(My big brother) is hurting me."

Mom: What happened?

Girl: He started a fight.

Mom: How did he start it?

Girl: I hit him and he hit me back.

Sounds like the Palestinian, Hezbollah, and some other Muslim's response to Israel defending themselves against terrorist aggression.

Like the little girl in the above strip, they thought they could torment Israel without risk because Israel has no right (in their book) to defend itself. They are finding out that they are wrong.

A sign says "Stop Israeli Terrorism". Israel has never attacked a nation that has not attacked them first or offered a serious threat that they could not ignore (as in the Iraqi reactor years ago.) Israel has never attacked in unprovoked manner simply to take land.

They may choose to say that they attacked Palestine when Israel was founded but that is half-true at best. The founding of Israel is far different than what the Palestinians say. I will do a posting on it some day, but, in a nutshell, the Zionist movement involved buying land from the Muslims until they had enough adjoining land to form a nation and when the local Muslims realized what was happening, they attacked the Israelis in order to steal the land, which the Jews had legally purchased, back and the Israelis took more in self-defense. It was not an invasion of a Muslim land by Jews in 1948 but a lawful land purchase and migration policy that had been in action for nearly 75 years. I really need to do an in depth on this but that will take a bit of time.

You've got it exactly right, Shoprat, but I'm not surprised; you're a very edjumicated guy! ;) It would be like purchasing land from someone in this country, then striking oil and having the original owner decide that he wants the land back. When you refuse to sell, he tries to take it back by force. But in the history of the land the Jews legally purchased, I've never read anything anywhere that says they ever made an offer to buy it back.

Israel is within it's rights all the way down the line, and it really shouldn't be an issue at all. GO ISRAEL!

Exactly! People forget that the Zionists bought and paid for every inch of Israel.

Of course the Palestinians, like Esau, were willing to sell their supposed birthright.

gayle, you're forgetting something! "when you refuse to sell, he tries to take it back by force". Brute force isn't necessary in America! The man would get himself elected mayor and use the power of eminent domain to take the land back!

Let us not forget about the U.N. either. They helped found the State of Israel, and now they want nothing to do with it. All they want to do now is condemn them and praise the palestinians!
