Israel Exercise Restraint?

The G8 issued a statement on the Israel-Lebanon conflict:

"These extremist elements [Hezbollah] and those that support them [Syria and Iran] cannot be allowed to plunge the Middle East into chaos. [Yet] We call upon Israel to exercise utmost restraint."

Talk about a useless statement. Hezbollah (who killed 241 of our Marines in 1983) has been operating freely in southern Lebanon for years, ever since Israel pulled out its troops. The flegling Lebanese government has never been able to do anything, assuming they wanted to, to rain in the terrorist group.

Let's regroup: we have a terrorist group operating freely in a so-called democracy. They kidnap Israeli soldiers and fire rockets into civilian populations. Israel retaliates. And what is the reaction? Israel is over doing it.

It is obvious the bulk of the world is anti-Semitic -- from government leaders to the media. Israel is fighting our mutual War on Terror -- they are fighting Iran through its cronies.

Whenever Israel pulls back, they have received nothing of value in return. Consider Lebanon, West Bank and Gaza. Be it Hezbollah or Hamas, they are terrorists. They should be eliminated completely -- them and their sympathizers. This is a GWOT.

I really doubt China and Russia are going to support the Muslim cause -- historically, this is not their way. They are secularists. They are economically driven first and foremost. They could care less about Muslim rights.

This is not a problem that can be negotiated away. It never has. Politicians take pride in negotiation. However, it has never solved, and will not solve, this Middle East problem.

Consider the account recorded in the Book of Joshua: when the children of Israel re-entered Canaan (after decades in Egypt, Sinai and southern Israel), they destroyed city after city, killing every living thing from humans to livestock. Their weakness was not doing what the Lord told them to do -- they spared those they were told not to. They then intermarried and became corrupted. The Lord certainly required a politically incorrect war. Understanding this as well as the geographical alignment after the WWI Mandate for Palestine by the League of Nations, the creation of a Jewish State and 1948-49 Israeli War of Independence, the Six-Day War in 1967 are essential to understanding the area's history.

Those that respect and honor freedom need to fight the GWOT with a greater urgency than we currently are demonstrating. These terrorists want all non-Muslims dead. They want freedom eliminated.

If we think these Israeli - Hezbollah - Hamas conflicts are isolated, think again. They go in cycles but they never go away.
