Within a few hours, media outlets in your countries shall present horific photos of blood, fire, and rubble from the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians will be screaming in front of the cameras about the massacre undertaken by the state of Israel.
Initially, you may show understanding for our operation in Gaza Strip, yet, once the photos of wounded civilians reach you. You shall press us, as is your custom to stop defending ourselves.
The first sign of this phenomenon can already be seen. Calls to "end the violence" from across the world are being heard loud and clear.Yet, they are only being heard now, after years of violence, and after Israel finally decided to respond.
The European Union is already rushed to declare that it condemns "Israel's disproportional use of force". Several news networks have brought together panels whose members are scrutinizing the law books at this very moment, in order to ascertain whether the Jewish state violated some international law.
I do not intend to deal with the question of where were these condemners and critics for the past seven years when Hamas murderers set the timers of their rockets to coincidence with the end of the school day in Israel because of a declared aim to kill as many children as possible.
The question we should be discussing at this time is as follows:
Why do the countries of the world and global media outlets obsessively engage in strict criticism that is only directed at Israel?
After all, there is not even one country out there that is required to adhere to the moral criteria which the world demand of us - of us of all people, the ones who opposed to the rest of the world face threats of extermination.
Our Arab neighbors are well familiar with this double standard vulnerability on their part, they are not bound by any kind of moral code. And so, they learned to exploit the international strictness towards Israel. A long time ago, they are already understood that, they can not face the state of Israel on the battlefield.
Indeed, when it comes to photographs and videos, they boast uniforms and weapon, yet once the fighting gets underway, they are quick to take off their uniforms and assimilate among women and children used as human shields.
They also make sure to place their arm depots in hospital basements and to fire rockets at population centers out of schoolyards. Their great hope is to elicit an Israeli response that would unintentionally hurt a few children.
Once that happens, they will wave their bodies before the cameras and cry out to the world for help. This was the case in Lebanon, and this may happen tomorrow in the Gaza Strip.
Easing Europe Conscience:
The stated demanding that Israel adhere to certain moral standards do not even dream of asking the same of her enemies. After all, we are dealing with theocracies and dictatorships, where homo***uals are publicly hanged, where women are regularly stoned for undermining their family's honor, and where children suspected of theft have their arms severed.
What do these states have to do with value of human rights or human life?
We should therefore ask representatives of global opinion:
Be honest with yourselves - Do the lives of humans being butchered daily in Iraq, Afghanistan and Darfur arouse you into similar action?
Reality indicates this is NOT the case.
My answer to the question regarding the obsessive preoccupation with the action of the Jews is purely sociological. Many of you, the shapes of public opinion, and mostly the European amongst you are interested in easing your conscience: If only can only show that the Israelis-Jews are not so moral or innocent, perhaps they deserve everything you did to them before they were able to establish their state? After all, here they are occupying and butchering the "poor Palestinians"; They are certainly no better than us.
To that end, you are willing to help out the lowliest terrorists. Therefore you bought into their slanderous Mohammed Al-Dura tale (Pallywood), and therefore you will rush to buy into various blood libels in the coming days.
Those who launch missiles and mortar shells into kindergartens know that they will always enjoy a protective umbrella from you. They draw their self confidence from the intolerable ease with which they enlist your public opinion in their favor.
Therefore, you would do well to think twice before you move to stop the punishment they lawfully deserve. After all, you are the only lifesaver that can spare this radical terror group, the measure of justice hovering above it.
IT IS MY RIGHT TO DEFEND MYSELF!!!
