Reader comment on item: "Free Gaza" Flotilla Defeats the Israel Defense Forces

Submitted by eigthman (Australia), Jun 1, 2010 at 09:39

Israel cannot ever win this media war. Because its supporters are part of the sobriety of the general population they do not go to university, do not throw molotov cocktails and do not provide exciting press copy and entertainment to fill news schedules, they do not 'demonstrate'. This population sector also do not entertain lies, are not ideologically driven and know well the hard realities of working life. And most do not give a damn about Israel and especially the 'palestinians'. As if these demonstrations would not happen for any of a hundred other reasons. If Israel discovered cold fusion they would be demonstrating the same. Get over it. They do not love you. They will never love you. They want to kill you. There is nothing you can do to avert them from that course. muslims are only good for this sort of intimidatory crap.

Submitting to the proposition that Israel should engage in this battle only paralyses Israel to the bankrupt premises of an arena that is systemically stacked against it. There is NOTHING Israel can ever do to satisfy these people other than national suicide. So pandering to the fiction of the sincerity of their cause is totally delusional and self destructive.

And Israeli reaction to this set of contrived parameters encourages the vitriole. When they know or think they can work on you they go on a feeding frenzy.

The West is awash with lies and liars. The liars in chief Obama/Clinton are in the driving seat now. Let them drive themselves off the cliff.

Gaza is at war with Israel. People who aid and abett Gaza are also at war with Israel. Let them take the full consequences of this. Apologising for defending yourself invests and invites your opponents to deal in an unquestioned premise to squeal not only when they are aggrieved by your actions when precipitated by your own needs, but to squeal and scream at the fact that you even have the temerity to defend yourself AT ALL.

After all that is the arab premise. 'You Jews will get slapped and like it and how dare you do anything about it'! Its 1935 again. The foot of the world is again on the neck of the Jews.

This time the arabs will pay a 100 times what the world paid for its last indulgence in the orgy of anti-Semitism. Mealy mouthed squirming to Western press/leftist interests only invigorates them and involves psychological capitulation diminishing yourself. These people cannot be placated and it is the biggest lie to think that they can be.

There is nothing to win with these people. The only way to 'play' is to not play their game. Their lies are easily exposed, their intellectual and moral cowardice is a simple matter to establish from the President down. arabs are incapable of reasoning, so is the left. They think that all of this is something 'new'.

How many Germans thought they would be punished for their crimes in 1938? 1940? How many of these 'humanitarian activist' nazis think that there will be no reckoning?
