" Thou comest to me with a sword and a spear and a shield, but I come to thee in the name of the L-rd of Hosts, the G-d of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast humiliated..." (I Samuel, 17:45-47)

Moral Violence

Once upon a time, people fought evil. They understood that in order to survive the slaughter of madmen you killed the enemy. More concern was placed on the lives of one's own countrymen that those of the enemy. Thank G-d, Harry Truman bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Were it not so, Japan would have prevailed. There was no other way to snap the cruel spine of a society that cultivated the death culture of the kamikaze pilot.

And so the pacifism of restraint, in addition to the inherent diseased morality of such a doctrine, is a guarantee of failure. Look at Youtube to see the true face of the "civilians" of Gaza. These ghouls distribute candy when Jews are murdered. Such soulless bi-pedaled mammals have cast their souls away, as surely as any Hitler adoring German did during WWII. Their lives are not worth the thumbnail of a Jew.

Hypothetically speaking, even if Bibi was willing to use the full force of the IAF (and he is not), there are untold numbers of terrorists and targets within Gaza, that require the surgery of capable ground forces. Unfortunately, Bibi's unwillingness to end this fight once and for all means that he would never give our soldiers the kind of cover they need, neither on the ground nor in the air. Hamas knows this and so they will eventually agree to a ceasefire. The conditions will be ridiculous. Hamas will limit their targets to the northwestern Negev. Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will see a cessation of rockets. Until the next time. The sorry shmucks of the South  Sderot, Netivot and numerous other kibbutzim and moshavim will continue to endure what they have always endured. Abandonment by their government. The reality of daily rockets that threaten to kill their children. Destruction and terror. And the psychological consequences that lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

What should be done?

Biblical Warfare. Death to Hamas and Gaza's populace who dance like ghouls in the streets whenever Jews are dismembered. Death from the skies to totally crush and destroy any vestige of Hamas. Carpet-bomb the region. If ground forces are necessary, only send them with the heaviest cover. And when the dust clears bring back all of the expelled Jews to Gaza. Let the return to Gaza symbolise the first of many such actions to save Israel.

Of course this is a dream. Bibi grovels before Obama and promises continued restraint, while other nebbish politicians keep explaining to goyim that we have  the right to defend ourselves. Here's an interesting point. Those who keep spouting the right of self-defence don't really believe it themselves. That's akin to saying that we need air to breath.

Nevertheless, truth is truth even when the articulation of truth (in an insane society) precludes its expression. We need to fight wars the way the Torah commands us to do. And biblical warfare is brutal.

Death to Amalek.
Shabbat Shalom!
