Julie Robinson claims of not being able to justify the bombing of homes and hospitals, yet these very places are where the Hamas fighters hide and launch missiles into Israel from; can you Julie justify that?
Encroachment on another’s land – the facts Lord Balfore decreed in 1917 that the British Mandated Area would be for a Jewish homeland (this included all of present day-Jordan, Israel – including Gaza and the West bank). In 1922 Jordan was partitioned off, 1947 the UN partitioned off more west of the Jordan. From 1948 every Arab nation attacked Israel (to drive the Jews into the sea) and the continued attacks are still unable to dislodge Israel; many if these Arab nations hived off part of their armies into terrorist organizations to continue to disrupt Israel. During the whole of this time Israel remained the only free democratic nation in the Middle East where real freedoms exist. While Arab nations expelled all their substantial multi-generational Jewish populations Israel has always welcomed many Arabs into citizenship with equal rights, with only one exception – they do not have to serve in the army but most volunteer to serve, and there are over 2 million Muslim Arabs as well as many Arab Christians and Arab Drews.
Facts are a good thing, Julie, but it is best if they are historically correct and not massaged for a story line.
I’ve said it before Israel places her soldiers at greater risks than any nation in trying to protect non-combatants by giving advance warnings and creating safe corridors; while Hamas and other terrorist groups hide among residential homes, in or under hospitals and schools and will always be prepared to use human shields.
Israel is for life Hamas is for death!
Yours in Good Faith
