Over the last few days, I’ve found myself defending Israel’s intense response to Lebanon’s Hezbollah. What most people don’t understand is that Israel is surrounded by enemies, and thus, can never show any weakness whatsoever. In other words, Israel can’t take any shit.
It’s quite simple – Lebanon played host to a terrorist organization whose sole purpose was to destroy Israel. I mean, if terrorists were gathered on the Canadian borders armed with missiles, what do you think America would do?
As liberal as I am, I despise Islamic Arabs. The other day U.S.A. Today ran a picture of a towel-headed Lebanonese woman cheering Hezbollah and the capture of two Israeli soldiers. Her eyes were glazed over in sick joy while she waved two guns in the air.
I’m sorry, but that about sums up Islamic Arab culture to me.
As a New Yorker, I witnessed first hand what these animals can do. And I will never forget the images on CNN showing footage of Arabic people dancing in the streets in celebration of 9/11.
I have been to Israel and have witnessed first hand that democracy works. Believe me, when I crossed over into Jordon, the change was immediate. In most Muslim based countries, the rich dictators rule in splendor while the people live in squalor. I don’t understand why the people don’t revolt – it’s not Israel that’s holding them down, but their own millionaire dictators. It is common knowledge former Palestinian leader Arafat died a billionaire while he left his people to starve and live in poverty. I mean, he kept his wife and child in a five star Parisian hotel with all the money he received through foreign aid.
Israel needs to do what it needs to do to ensure the safety of her people.
