Israeli Restraint

Everywhere we hear about the need for Israeli restraint.


If your family was being shelled and rocketed, would you exercise restraint or would you eliminate the problem?

If you are one of those restraint exericisers, I do not want you in my family.

If my family is shot at, trust me, I will exercise every last bit of force I can get my hands on to eliminate the problem from the face of this earth.

There is only so long until the "End Game", tolerating evil only accelerates the timing. The Israelis, rather than using excessive force, by their "restraint" are only speeding the final days. The time for taking prisoners is long gone. Muslims only see prisoners as something to bargain for. The next time they kidnap an Israeli to get back their Muslim friends, the Israelis should execute every Muslim in that prison, and then go on to the town the ransom note came from.

The time for understanding, understatement and restrain is long gone.

There are 1.5 billion Muslims. If only 10 percent are hardliners, that is 150 million.

A point to keep in mind, the Israelis only have about 300 warheads. On the other hand, the Muslims only have about 100 targets of value. Thus, there are 200 warheads left for Europe in the end game.

Israel, nice people and Collateral Damage

Unfortunately we learn the lessons of the last war and usually not the lessons that mattered. The Japanese fought World War II on the basis of the Russian War of 1905; they just missed the real points. We fought Gulf I on the basis of Viet Nam, we just missed the real points. Israel is fighting this war on the basis of the our example of Kosovo.

The Israelis are surrounded by people who want them dead. They do not have enough territory to allow an in depth defense. There are only two real solutions, either allow no incursions or attacks without massive and complete destruction of the perpetrator or take enough territory to allow an in depth defense.

Israel should never have occupied any territory beyond its borders. It should have expanded its borders and expelled or eliminated any previous occupants who did not desire to become Israelis. The occupation of territory is a mistake. That implies the territory is not legitimately theirs.

Our enemies, for in this case Israel's enemies are also those of the United States, and in fact enemies of the entire non-muslim world, must understand that we will accept no nibbling away at our toes. If they strike at us from a location, we will take that location for our own. For when it is our territory we need not fear attack from it. Muslims who will not acknowledge the civil authority of non-islamic government need to be expelled. There is no freedom under even the United States Constitution to advocate the violent overthrow of our government.

Our enemies also need to understand that what we take, we will never give up. Never.

Airpower is nice, precision is nice. A rifleman wins the war. With enough airpower, you can make it easier for the rifleman, but the war is not over until the rifleman holds the ground.

Precision has its limits and is not always that helpful. Perhaps rather than precisioning a 125 pound warhead, it would be better to precision a 3,000 warhead and tell people not to get too close to the enemy.

Pat Buchanan and the Bloodthirsty Hebrews

In two columns, posted at WorldNetDaily this week, Pat Buchanan accused President Bush of being a puppet of nefarious Jewish warmongers. Nothing sets Buchanan’s imagination racing like a Bush-backed Israeli war. On Tuesday, Pat asked, “Who is whispering in his ear?” His answer: bloodthirsty Hebrews.

“That Tel Aviv is maneuvering us to fight its wars is understandable. That Americans are ignorant of, or complicit in this, is deplorable.”

This occurred after “Israel instructed the United States to terminate all aid to the Palestinian Authority,” and “Our Crawford cowboy meekly complied.” In an overtly ethnic reference, he added, “Bush sounded less like the leader of the Free World than some bellicose city councilman from Brooklyn Heights.”

In Thursday’s column, entitled “No, This is Not ‘Our War,’” Buchanan writes America is “impotent” because “we have allowed Israelto dictate to whom we may and may not talk.”

Worse, blood-drenched Jews are using America equipment to commit war crimes. “Israeli airstrikes [are] an outlawed form of collective punishment, that has left [Hezbollah supporters] with no sanitation, rotting food, impure water and days without light or electricity in the horrible heat of July.” (Days without light in July?)

He sagely concludes: “And we wonder why they hate us.”

I am a bit offended by the reference to paleoconservatives and Pat Buchanan in same sentence. I presume the paleo… refers to "old" and then ties in conservative.

Pat Buchanan is a populist, one of those who the founding father hoped to protect us against when they did not make this a democracy, but rather a constitutional democratic republic. The function of the Constitution in a large part is to stabilize the government and protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.

In addition to being a populist, Pat Buchanan is either a devil buddy or a fool.

The Israelis have tried since the the year 33AD to make people like them by being timid. They ignored the instructions in the Old Testament, their Torah; they ignored the lessons of the Inquisition; they ignored the lessons of the Holocaust; they ignored the lessons of the first seven Arab-Israeli wars, which were really Muslim-Israeli wars. Seven wars, the Israelis won each one of them. There are still Muslims left. How many Jews would be left if the Muslims won one war?

The Israelis need to listen to history. Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it; repeat it they certainly have.

The Israelis need to:
• Tell the Muslim world that they have a right to exist;
• Tell the Muslims that they will no longer accept Muslim violence passively;
• Tell the Muslims in advance that they will annex permanently any territory that harbors perpetrators of violence against Israel, but not annex the people; they will drive the people out and it will become Israeli territory forever;
• Tell the world this is a new dawn, Israel will no longer beg for mercy;
• Put their fighters on Victor alert;
• Tell Europe in no uncertain terms the Victor alert fighters will nuke the European capitals as well as the Muslim world in the event of a war that the Israelis appear to be losing;
• Name every operation with code words like FAT BOY, LITTLE MAN, SUNRISE, MUSHROOM and the like, just to make sure the world groks the plan in its fullness;
• Remind the world of Masada and tell them the sword goes out first this time;
• Strike the heart of any nation who allows violence to cross their borders into Israel.

It is well known that Muslims are either at your throat or at your feet. The word of Allah, as interpreted by the Wahabbist, leaves no room for other religions, thus there is no room for other religions. Thus, either you kill them, or they kill you.

Let there be no misunderstanding; no talk of compromise; no talk of love without love in return.

Give violence a chance.
