Halloween Pranks

Reader comment on item: Israel and Clear Victory

Submitted by Jules Posten (United States), Dec 28, 2008 at 19:18

does the "civilized" world regard the shelling of Israel by rockets and mortar projectiles as some type of halloween prank that goes on year round? just why is it that when "militants" playfully send barrages of these explosive rounds at Israel, we never see reports of marches to protest these actions. if Israel reacts to protect its citizens, they are condemned and villified, and preached at to show "restraint"., and there are marches made from all over the globe.

well to Hamas and their ilk, that type of restraint means they are free to attack over and over, while the civilized nations of the world restrain Israel from defending itself. is there any other nation on the earrth that is held to such an impossible standard?
