Appologists Unite Against Israel

It happens every couple of years in Israel: the Israelis and the Arabs living in Gaza and West Bank escalate their attacks. Bombings happen every week but are rarely reported by the western media. When Israel ups the weaponry, they can only do wrong.

The United Nations has condemned Israel's air strikes in Gaza as "disproportionate" and a breach of international law. But I guess the fact that Hamas' relentless attacks, albeit with less fanfare and destruction, are okay?

I have sympathy for the average person living in Gaza. They live in a pigsty. They have little hope for a normal life. Every day is a struggle for their physical well-being.

However, I have no sympathy for the Hamas leaders. They have no desire for peace side-by-side with Israel. Their only hope is for the complete destruction of Israel and the annihilation of every Jew in the world.

Israel was embarrassed in their last skirmish with Hezbollah in Lebanon. They fought proportionately and lost.

Why would a country with military supremacy elect to fight on the terms the enemy can support?

I really do not understand why Israel just does not bulldoze the entire Gaza strip. I am sure there are nice people in Gaza, even Mother Theresa-like, but in the big picture, there is very little of redeeming value that comes out of Gaza.

Corrupt rulers -- Hamas leaders -- make life miserable for their subservient masses. Their only hope is to somehow try to make the stronger enemy appear to be the unfair party. Leave it up to the UN and the liberal media to come to their aid.

If the shoe were on the other foot...and it is not too far of a stretch to see it happen one day...the Arabs would give no quarter to the the Jews. Why should the Jews continue to show restraint when they could literally wipe the Arabs in Gaza off the map?
