Let's say you live in America and on the other side of the border, in Mexico is a radical terrorist faction hell bent on murdering Americans, taking back the entire Southwest, and bringing an end to freedom and democracy in North America. They believe our way of life is immoral and as such it is their responsibility to eliminate us. The Mexican government knows they exist but the terrorists are so powerful the Mexican government can do nothing to eliminate this terrorist faction. In fact, the terrorist faction has put most of the Mexican goverment in power, so to go against them would mean to lose office.
Let's say that they say they will leave us alone if we give them some land that they say they have a right to, like Texas. The world is pressuring the big bad mean US (to the point of sanctions) to cease defending itself and killing those poor innocent Mexicans and just move Americans out of their homes in cities in southern Texas and we do it, we force thousands of people to leave the homes they have known their entire lives, so we can give that area to Mexico and this terrorist group. But it doesn't stop them because a few years later they're back and their using car bombs and killing Americans again. Eventually they sneak over the border and kidnap a few of our National Guardsmen working the border. They say that if we release their radical terrorist buddies they will let our Guardsmen go.
The American government and the people get sick and damn tired of having this terrorist group making demands for land, attacking innocent Americans, and now kidnapping our soldiers from OUR side of the border.
What does America do? Does America concede and give them more land? Appease them by turning over the terrorists? Or go into northern Mexico and start kicking some ass.
If this happened in America you would want your government to protect you and your family by going in and killing the terrorists and regaining our sovereignty. You would want them to do this regardless of the numbers of innocent Mexicans who would be killed.
So then why is it Israel cannot protect its sovereignty, its people, its way of LIFE? Muslim terrorism has been going on in the world for over a thousand years. Israel is not a terrorist nation. When is the last time you ever saw a video on the internet of the IDF beheading someone? When is the last time you heard of Israelis blowing themselves up in marketplaces? When is the last time you heard Israelis threatening annihiliation to the rest of the world?
That's right, you don't.
YES I feel for the innocent people who always get caught in the middle of these terrible battles, it's so sad. But to those of you angry over the 700,000 displaced Lebanese and those women and children who have been injured and killed...
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THIS WAS HAPPENING IN ISRAEL?
