There is probably nothing more outrageously stupid than those arguments which condemn Israel for the “disproportionate” nature of its attacks on Hamas in Gaza. Hamas, along with its Iranian masters, is dedicated to the extermination of Israel. These terrorists have lobbed thousands of missiles into Israel. They purposely place their military installations in residential areas. And they’ve tried to prevent the wounded from getting help from Egyptian medical personnel. Presumably, the western shills for Palestinian statehood (and good luck with that, incidentally, considering that there are at least two Palestinian factions at each other’s throats) would also argue that a proportionate response to the destruction of the Trade Towers in New York would have been to fly an airplane into the tallest building in Kabul.
No, geniuses, the proper approach to a rabid dog is not to say “bad doggie” and swat him on the head with a rolled up copy of the New York Times. The proper approach is…put him down.
Seraphic Secret has some good commentary on the subject, plus a roundup of links.
