Zionists Should Celebrate this Rite of Passage

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

Submitted by Alex (United States), Jun 4, 2010 at 00:49

Something is happening here--Israeli troops were similarly unprepared in 2006 when sent into Lebanon without the proper backup and plans, but there were no video cameras back then to capture the image of overly-restrained and under-armed soldiers confronting savage yet less well-equipped terrorists, let alone terrorists disguised as humanitarian aid workers! I will go ahead and say that the gritty, no-holds barred, take no prisoners ethos of Israeli self-defense that we have not seen since before 1982 in Lebanon was reborn on the deck of that ship. I'm happy.
