IS DEFENDING MILLIONS OF ISRAELIS NOT INCLUDED IN "OBAMA'S HUMANITARIAN" MISSION?

Obama's "Humanitarian" War to Cause Major Earthquake in America?

ACCEPTANCE DESPITE HYPOCRISY

The sincerity of Obama in his argument is irrelevant, since the argument was accepted, though critics expose the hypocrisy and murdered in cold blood by the Islamic Republic's notorious cruel Basij militias and Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
-Syria's prison State where the true numbers are hard to figure out in that tightly closed totalitarian, but at least over a hundred have been massacred by the oppressive Syrian Arab Republic.
-In the Sudan, where they just voted for independence from the Arab racist dominated regime in Khartoum after years of the biggest calamity since WW2, the genocide, costing the lives of 2,500,000. In March (2011), at least 70 died in Northern Sudan's aggression.

Nevertheless the argument for "rescuing civilians" the humanitarian pan, finds ears in the US.

ISRAEL'S STRUGGLE AND CONCERN [IS ONLY] FOR SURVIVAL

Though distracters among Arabists (and their helpers) try to divert the issue, time and time again. The truth must be told, Israel's worry and actions were always about survival.
As someone in Congress has put it so eloquently: "since when do we demand that responses to naked aggression and intended genocide be proportionate?"
The undeniable fact of Israel, Jews in Israel/Palestine facing the constant threat of genocide at least since the 1920s must be reminded, lest we lose focus on the bigger picture.

PROTECTING ISRAELI AND ARAB CIVILIANS UNDER THREAT FROM HAMAS/FATAH'S "AL-AQSA" BRIGADE/HEZBOLLAH

Further more, since both, the Arab-Palestinian regime in Gaza - Hamas and Iran-Syria proxy Islamic terror group in Lebanon Hezbollah, hold their own civilian population hostage and aim at Israeli civilians. Every help Israel can get to combat these forces, thus minimizing both Arab and Israeli civilian casualties, should be as much 'humanitarian' as Libyans are.

CONCLUSION

If the 'humanitarian argument' holds any water in Obama's policy vis-à-vis Libya, so can be -to say the least- the argument be made for any action against 1) Iran (not to mention actions against Nuclear Iran - the perfect world disaster). 2) Syria, the catch: clearly the racist Arab League couldn't care less for Arab civilians as long as the regime is anti-Jewish. 3) Iran/Syria's Hezbollah arm (actually from the US stand, American people have lost more lives to Hezbollah than to Gadhafi). 4) Against radical Arab Palestine.
(And any diversion such as blaming the so-called "settlements" or the like, can not be used to hinder the survival of Israeli innocent civilians. Need we say more?)

As long as there is a double standard and civilians whose agenda is not the Arab League's. It only reaffirms the criminal shame, that that Goliath Arab League Lobby not only dictates the UN and Amnesty but US foreign policy as well.

A minimum of honesty from the Obama's admin. would be nice. Like: 'We went into Libya because the Arab League pushed/forced us to.' To paraphrase Obamanism to Obama himself: A bit of "transparency" wouldn't hurt for a "change."
