International Cat Speculators Since 2006

This has to be the best quote I have ever seen on the Palestinian conflict.

Let me ask you a hypothetical question. What do you think America would do if Canadian soldiers were firing dozens of missiles every day into Buffalo, N.Y.? What do you think our response would be if Mexican troops for two years had launched daily rocket attacks on San Diego — and bragged about it?

I can tell you, our response would look nothing like Israel’s restrained and pinpoint reactions to daily missile attacks from Gaza. We would use whatever means necessary to win the war. There would likely be numerous casualties on our enemy’s side, but we would rightfully hold those who attacked us responsible.

More than 1,300 rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza since Palestinians were given control two years ago. Israelis, however, have gone to incredible lengths to stop the war against them without harming Palestinian non-combatants. But make no mistake, Israel is at war. The elected Hamas government regularly repeats its official promise to destroy Israel entirely and replace it with an Islamic state. Hamas openly took credit for killing one woman and wounding dozens more last week alone.

The Palestinian strategy is to purposely target and kill Israeli civilians. Then, when Israel goes after those launching the attacks, Palestinians claim to be the victims. If Palestinian civilians aren’t hurt in the Israeli attacks, they stage injuries and deaths. Too often, they garner sympathy and support from a gullible or anti-Semitic media in the international community.

Israelis, themselves, are often incapable of facing the damage they inflict in self-defense. Knowing this, Islamic extremists are using their own populations as human shields.

I’m beginning to wonder how much longer this vicious plot will work though. International sympathy for Palestinians has diminished as the same Islamofascist extremists have brought havoc to Madrid, Bali, Somalia, London and elsewhere. More importantly, Israelis themselves are suffering so badly, they may be on the verge of losing their sympathy for the people who have sworn to kill them.

Imagine what it would be like to live, knowing that a rocket could fall on you or your children at any minute. Half of those who live nearest to Gaza have fled their homes. Those remaining are traumatized by daily warning sirens and explosions.

The irony is that Israel has the military might to easily win the war that is being waged against them today. They haven’t used that might, in the past, out of compassion for Palestinian civilians and because it could trigger a wider regional conflict.

That balance of power is about to change, though. If Iran develops nuclear weapons, the very existence of this tiny nation of Israel will be threatened. The Iranian regime has left little doubt that it intends to see Israel “wiped off the map.” Hamas is using the same language, not coincidentally, and has announced it will begin launching missiles into Israel from the West Bank too.

If the world doesn’t act to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions, it must be prepared for the consequences of Israel defending itself.

    I would consider it a privilege if you would add my blog “The Tygrrrr Express” to your list of linked sites if you feel the quality of it is high.

    Happy June.


  2. “our response would look nothing like Israel’s restrained and pinpoint reactions” – wow, what a statement, I couldn’t agree more.

  3. I think it’s plausible to say that Mexicans have infact killed many more Americans than any so called Arab terrorists have killed jews in Israel.

    But since you guys like Israel, let’s celebrate this Friday June 8. The 40th anniversery of the murder of 34 US sailors in the prolonged attack on the USS Liberty. What else has Israel done?

    If Fred wins the nod and becomes the Prez, well at least my F The President bumper sticker will still be relevant.


  4. blacktygrrrr – I might have linked to your site if you had linked to mine. Perhaps less of a privilege and more of a way to get up your hits?

  5. Woody: Nice to see you can’t tell the difference between defensive actions by a nation under siege from birth and a terrorist attacks from political pawns.

    As for mistakes in battle, they happen. The terrorists who fire random missiles from land given up for peace are doing so deliberately.

    As they say, if Israel were to stop fighting tomorrow, they would be destroyed. If the Palestinians were to give up fighting tomorrow, they would be the most prosperous nation in the Arab world (as they were before they started fighting).

  6. I have just visited Woody’s website, may I say he would feel comfortable having a coffee with Mengele, Eichmann and every possible white supremest and hate mongerer around.

    Thank G-d I live in Israel. Where me and My army protects its citizens. The only problem with the Israeli government and Army is that it does not put enough trust in G-d. We should do what every other nation on earth would do if it had over 5000 rockets fired at it since the Oslo accords-give the Palestinians an ultimatum either stop the shelling or we will eliminate one city at a time until the bombing stops.

    Our lives and our soldiers and children are too precious to keep on fighting with one hand tied behind our back (worried about US and world public opinion) “out of compassion for Palestinian civilians and because it could trigger a wider regional conflict”

    With regards to the USS liberty-today the US killd 8 afganistan-soldiers in a friendly fire accident, in addition the US killed 6 Canadian soldiers in afganistan a few years back in another friendly fire accident. Unfortunately, errors do occur during war.

    G-d Bless Fred Thompson

  7. Thanks for your comment, I’d love to live in Israel myself.

    Come back anytime!

  8. Merci pour ces magnifiques photos!

    Fred Thompson has my vote! Really tells it like it is and hits
    the nail on the head. I am a life-long Demo who is fed up
    with the party pandering to the extreme left….. these antisemites and “good Jews” want to solve problems like
    Nevile Chaimberlain…. Appeasement never works…..

    If Russia was subjected to what Israel was, it would level
    the homes and wipe out the Pals, China-worse, USA worse.

    Yet, the Brits and French run with all this revisionst crap!
    Thinly veiled neo-fascism……. P.S. Syria destroyed a City
    and killed 40,000 of its own for a minor rebellion, Iraq gassed
    its own citizens, Saudi Arabia beheaded over 100 people last
    year——- but, of course, Israel is the bad guy on the block.
    Imagine how long it would take the Arabs to kill every Jew
    if Israel did not have a strong military and the N weapon,

    Teddy Roosevelt, Truman, Johnson, Reagan and Bush II
    had cojones….. That’s what an American President should
    be like.


  10. An American President should be like George W? I don’t think so. A President should be willing to do whatever they advocate. If going off to war is good enough in Bush’s opinion for Jow nobody, then it should be good enough for him.

  11. Figures a guy that looks like the Creature of the Black Lagoon must neak of to Israel but he decides to run. As long as Fred doesn’t open his yap, he’ll have a chance to garner some votes.
