Israel's Plight - A Right to Fight In Spite of the World's Might

Reader comment on item: Panetta Predicts an Israeli Strike on Iran
in response to reader comment: Israel is determined - No, it is a simple, tragic crisis mechanism

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Feb 16, 2012 at 18:53

When the presupposed actions of the IDF are couched in terms of when as opposed to if, one might suppose that a certain provocation is expected, vis a vis Lebanon in 2006; or other some such ankle biting activity that gives Israel's enemies their rationale to retaliate or for Israel's retaliation to their enemies' act of violence. But that further presupposes that all those rocket attacks are not provocations of their own, right?

Israel is forced to walk a tight rope of uncertainty, faced with the treachery of their avowed enemies and further with the ambivalence of certain of her allies, not the least of which is the United States under the current American Chief Executive's unfathomable attitude that is obscured by his favoritism of things Muslim. Israel does not have a choice of which evil to deal with first: all choices facing Israel are controlled by circumstances that must each be addressed by one irreversible conclusion: anything short of annihilation of any of Israel's foes will result in the world being a place no one will be safe in for several years.

The world has made it choice; that having allowed the 'Palestinian' entity access to the inner crowd of the Security Council of the United Nations, they have, by proxy of the enemies of Israel in the U. N. allowed for a decision that is intended to reverse the decision of nationhood granted to Israel in 1948. It is a fatal mistake, not for Israel, but for her enemies. And America, by not taking the most definitive stand beside Israel, will be included in the fallout.

In actuality, a targeted location is likely to be the place everyone will have to go back to prophecy to find out 'what happened?' Does anyone think this is improbable? Hey; whoever thought in 1947 that Israel would be reborn out of the rubble of the holocaust? Let him who understands, understand.

The War of 2012 is already engaged as a continuation of the hostilities directed towards Israel. The question remains: whose side will you be on?
