Finally, a Little Disproportional Retaliation

Posted by Exile on March 2, 2008

Israel is back in the news again after going into Gaza with about 2,000 troops, hell bent on destroying the rocket brigades. After months of being under constant barage, the Israelis have finally had enough. During this attack on Israel, we have heard precious little from the UN and all the other do-gooder do-nothing outfits around the world to condemn or stop the rain of qassam rockets. Any country under this kind of attack would be justified in taking appropriate defensive military action, but not so for beleagured Israel. This little snippet from The Times on Line says it all:

Ban Ki-Moon, the UN Secretary General, condemned what he called Israel’s “disproportionate and excessive use of force,” but his comments drew an angry snub from Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister. “With all due respect, nothing will prevent us from continuing operations to protect our citizens.”

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations told the assembly that Israel was acting only after extreme provocation by Hamas.

“As I speak to you now, more than a quarter of a million Israeli citizens are in the range of the deadly and murderous weapons of Hamas, care of Hamas, of its backers in the region and their malicious vision,” said Daniel Carmon. “The Government of Israel should thus not apologize for protecting its citizens.”

I now understand why the Palestinians aren’t really interested in being a recognised state. If that were so, they would be accountable to all the worlds organisations, including the UN, for their actions. As things are now, it is merely a terrorist organisation attacking Israel and not a foreign country run by a government.

Perhaps the good Ban ki-Moon would be so good as to enlighten us, what would be a proportionate and non-excessive amount of force? Probably, none at all would be his suggestion.

It is good to see Olmert taking a stand against the criminal Hamas organisation and the despicable statement from Ban ki-Moon. I fail to see the point of this constant rhetoric emanating from the UN against Israels right to defend itself.
Anywhere else in the world, there would be UN troops positioned to hinder these attacks and to hold the aggressors at bay. Apparently, the UN is as committed to the destruction of Israel as is Hamas and all the other vile terrorist organisations in that area. This has to stop.

Israel has shown more than enough tolerance and soaked up enough rocket fire. It is time to draw a line in the sand around Gaza and go after the perpetrators. The UN won’t, so Israel must. It really is that simple.
