Israel vs. Lebanon and Pali, and Iran and Syria and ...

Ok, every blogger in the world seems to be writing about the resumption of the Israeli-Arab war. It's not a new war, it's just a continuation of the 1st one. I'm not going to blog about the current event's of the war, you can go Hot Air and check out what Allah's been updating everyone on or go over to the Jblogosphere to see what live bloggers in Israel are saying.

Everyone is saying how the kidnapping of those soldiers are what started this, but I think we have to look deeper. The actuality, as most people know are that the Arab's don't even acknowledge the existence of Israel. That's right folks, Hezbollah and Hamas are fighting apparations. That must be why, in 1967, the Israeli's fought a war on 3 fronts and kicked the collective butts of every military in the region at one time!

Now think about this, the terroristic Arabs, as well as the governments (there is a difference between the 2 albeit small) don't even refer to Israel as Israel, but rather as "Zionist Regime" or something close to that. Egypt might be the only one that even says Israel IS REAL (yeah it's a play on words). Now all these people are running around saying that Israel should "use restraint" or "control their temper" or some such nonsense. However, I have to ask you, should you show restraint and consideration for people who won't acknowledge your basic right to live/breath etc? Israel should just say to it's critics, especially in the middle east "we don't exist, so these bombs aren't real, nothing to see here move along".

Now think about this, if someone you worked with, decidedly that you didn't exist, only referred to you as "that guy in cubicle A", and went around telling everyone that they "wanted to push you and yer cubicle out the window". Then this person started getting people on your floor to start agreeing with them, or at least not condemning them for their statements, would you show "restrain" or would you raise your voice just a little? When they came and started shoving the walls of your cubicle towards the window...would you shove back some? Damn straight you would, yelling the whole that it was your stapler!

Substitute stapler for soldiers, cubicle for land, and window for ocean and you have what Israel is going through. They are not fighting for just their soldiers (though you have to love any country that will raise hell for even one of it's son's), they are fighting for their lives, for the existence. Quite frankly, I think they are just severely pissed off at continously being told they really "don't exist". Methinks Olhmert is saying "Won't acknowledge our existence eh?, then whats causing your bridges to blow up? Wasn't us, we don't exist!". Olhmert claims to be a Menachem Begin disciple, wonder if he's been thinking of some of Begin's speeches. (hat tip to Daniel Pipes for the quotes).
"Our right to exist - have you ever heard of such a thing?" he declared, passion creeping into his voice. "Would it enter the mind of any Briton or Frenchman, Belgian or Dutchman, Hungarian or Bulgarian, Russian or American, to request for its people recognition of its right to exist?"..."Mr. Speaker: We were granted our right to exist by the God of our fathers at the glimmer of the dawn of human civilization four thousand years ago. Hence, the Jewish people have an historic, eternal and inalienable right to exist in this land, Eretz Yisrael, the land of our forefathers. We need nobody's recognition in asserting this inalienable right. And for this inalienable right, which has been sanctified in Jewish blood from generation to generation, we have paid a price unexampled in the annals of nations.""Mr. Speaker: From the Knesset of Israel, I say to the world, our very existence per se is our right to exist!"
Everyone should ask themselves, "How would we act, if all of our neighbors told us that we did not have a right to simply exist?". When you ask yourselves that question, you get a much better appreciation of what Israel has been going through and an understanding of their response.
