In Israeli politics, almost everything is upside-down. The rich vote labor and the workers vote for the capitalists. The generals and heads of the secret service are left-wing. The left-of-center parties again blame the right-of-center government not to hit Chamas hard enough.
NB: These Israeli counterattacks, contrary to what the media report, are not for revenge. That’s the old libel, that the G^d of the Jews (“the Old Testament”) is a revengeful G^d while the G^d of the Christians (“the New Testament”) in contrast, would be the G^d of love who taught them to turn the other cheek. Pretty little love that we received from them that is. Israel’s repressible measures are meant as deterrence.
Then, Israel is blamed if an attack from Gaza killed no one and our response did. As if we are to be fault for building safe spaces and running for safety while in Gaza the junta does nothing to support the population because every victim is a welcome martyr for the regime.
And of course, when G^d protects the Jews, the Jews are malicious; and when He didn’t, He abandoned the Jews. This has very long roots too. When the plague in Europe killed the Jews less (we wash before eating a meal), we must have caused it and they exterminated communities for it.
The first word a Jew says in the morning is shalom; the last word before retiring is shalom. There are no people in the world who want peace than Jews. To force a peace process on us is like demanding that vegans stops eating meat.
The only reasons for not having peace in the Middle East are hatred for Jews and little respect for Thou Shan’t murder. Teach these two concepts and everyone will live in peace and harmony, prosperity and dignity.
Thank you, Bibi, for not retuning the hatred and refraining from risking a war. We’re waiting for the world to embrace us. That’s all there is to it.
History may count among Bibi’s greatest accomplishments, all the wars that he refused to fight. Thankfully, he doesn’t stand alone.
BTW, how do we know that the rocket fire from Gaza doesn’t stem from a political or ideological conflict but is rooted in hatred? Because they always shoot rockets on Shabbat and the Jewish Festivals. That’s what hate does. The German Nazis in occupied the Netherlands could’ve railed Jews to the extermination camps because they ‘believed’ that Jews are vermin. The proofs that the real reason was hatred: They packed the cattle wagons with Jews on Tuesday because Jews hold that day as doubly blessed. They rounded up Jews not on Rosh Hashannah, Yom Kippur or Sukkot but on Simchat Torah. That shows that their motive was hatred alone.
