  1. Well said B.Poster. Israel must stop allowing itself to be used as the sacrificial lamb for the west to curry favor with the muslim world.

  2. It doen’t matter what the US says. The US is not in charge of Israel. Ehud Olmert and the Israeli government are in charge of Israel. They along with the citizens of Israel should decide what tp do. If the Americans or anyone else try to “dictate” to Israel, the Israelis should tell them to TAKE A FLYING LEAP AND SHUT THE F*CK UP!!

    If Islamic terrorists set up shop in Canada or Mexico and began rocket attacks on America, I can assure the United States military would respond and they would respond vigorously!!

    If Islamic terrorists set up shop in Ireland and began rocket attacks on Britian, I don’t live in Britian but I think it is a safe assumption that the British military would respond vigorously!!

    Israel should do the same. They should respond vigorously!! Ultimately how they choose to respond is up to the Israelis, not the Americans or anyone else.

    Now a humble request. If the Israelis should opt to not respond aggresively, DO NOT use the Americans or anyone else for political cover. In other words, if Israel should choose not to respond to this act of naked aggression by the Palestinians, do not use the excuse that the Americans or anyone else dictated to them that they could not respond to this attack.

    I don’t know about other countries but I do know in the US that Israel has much support. In my opinion, if Israel responds aggressively to the attacks from the Palestinians, it will make it easier for their supporters in the US to lobby on their behalf. Also, if Israel will state their case more forcefully, more Aemricans would be aware of their plight. Unfortunately most Ameiricans are unaware of the situation. This needs to change.

    Finally, no matter what American leaders or the leaders of any other nation says Israel needs to act in its own best interests. Neither Americans nor anyone else rule Israel. Israelis rule Israel. Decisons regarding their defense are theirs and theirs alone.
