Israel is wrong

Scripting News: 8/1/2006: “I know I’m going to catch hell for this, but it’s time to say something. Israel is wrong. There aren’t two sides to this anymore. I’ve heard all I want to hear from Israel. It’s time to stop the attack on Hezbollah, withdraw back into Israel, stop firing bombs into Lebanon, and shut up for a while and let everyone else sort this out. It’s not just Israel’s problem. There are hundreds of millions of lives at stake in the Middle East, and this time not only has an Arab country, and that’s what Hezbollah is, withstood Israel’s attack, but they’re also clearly justified in their response to the Israeli attack.

Hezbollah has every right to have defenses against Israel. If I’m not mistaken, Hezbollah didn’t start firing rockets into Israel until they were attacked by Israel. Okay, they took two Israeli soldiers hostage. And now Israel has killed hundreds of Lebanese, destroyed large parts of the country and its infrastructure. It’s enough already. Even a Jew like myself sees how wrong the Israeli position is.”

  1. Argh. I hate what’s going on. I also hate that world opinion here is so one-sided. If Mexican terrorists were lobbing rockets into Harlingen, and getting the technology to reach Houston, I don’t imagine that even a more reasonable US government would react much differently, especially when the terrorists were hiding among civilians. Same is true for any other government on the planet.

    No matter what the Israelis do–good or bad, and in this case, much is bad–they have the misfortune of being the proxy for the western “progressive” world’s collective inability to come to terms with its own guilt over past and current indiscretions and cruel treatment of former colonies and current economic fiefdoms. Hence the current outrage, which has dwarfed the far greater and less justified horrors of Darfur, East Timor, etc., etc., etc…
