Reader comment on item: Reflections on Current Hamas-Israel Hostilities

When enough is enough – Israel it is time to take off the gloves and defend your citizens - no holds barred.

No sane country in the world would stand for hundreds of missiles fired at her citizens in a few days without an extreme response. The hell with world opinion or the leftist distorted Media. People respect a country that defends its citizens and not put it citizens in harms way.

This is the results of years of concessions by Israel. To the Palestinian Arabs a concession is a sign of weakness.

When Israel had the policy of retaliating with a heavy hand many years ago, this escalation would have never happened.

I would like to see us Americans tolerate hundreds of missiles coming at us across our borders and bombing our territories our schools and our homes.

The outcry by the American population would be respond with extreme power and stop the missiles, no matter what the cost.

In 1962 the Russians put missiles in Cuba without firing on the United States that almost started a nuclear World War 3.

Let the action begin.

I strongly support an extremely strong action against terrorism and missiles.

PS.

Here's the point I'd like to make - if Israel restrains itself against firing back at the terrorists in Gaza, the world sees Israel as an occupier and oppressor. If Israel retaliates with an Operation Cast Lead style retaliation, the world sees Israel as an aggressor and violent regime. It seems to be me that either way Israel loses in the theater of world opinion, so why not shut down the jihadis and protect your citizens?
