So many people are trying to analyze why there's been such a huge explosion of violence in the Middle East. There's been hatred and animosity for years, so why only now does it break out into yet another full scale war? Democrats and other peaceniks are blaming Bush foreign policy of all things, as well as how 'cruel' Israel is to the 'Palestinians.' First off, let's get one thing straight. There's two sides to this war: Israel and bloodthirsty barbarians. Hamas and Hezbollah have publicly stated that their sworn goal is the eradication of Israel. Everything they do is towards that end. Every time they pretend to toss that goal aside is only an attempt to buy them time to prepare for yet another homocidal assault on Israel...usually against civilians. So, what is the true cause of this war, you ask? Let's take a look. One of the main reasons the terrorists don't attack Israel openly a lot is because it's HARD. Israel, out of sheer necessity, is absolutely vicious on defense, and suicide bombers, more often than not, get gunned down before they get to murder all the poor Jewish kids. What they were doing recently with these 'negotiations' was bide their time, looking for the opportune moment. Then, it appeared to come. Israel publicly stated that they were 'tired' of the fighting and conceded the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. 'Tired,' huh? Well, the terrorists took that to mean 'weak,' and began to prepare. Now, they're in full jihad mode and trying to finish what Israel started by conceding land to the barbarians. The 'official' governments of the countries they're from are taking advantage of another 'weakness,' our willingness to negotiate with them. Lebanon, Hamas, and Syria have said that they're not responsible for the actions of the terrorists, all the while funding them and letting them set up headquarters and rocket batteries on their land. It doesn't matter how ludicrous this claim is, the peaceniks again show the terrorrists their weakness by condemning Israel's attacks. Even the hawks among us are encouraging 'restraint.' Then there's the third weakness. The barbarians have watched us as the news is so quick to condemn the U.S. military and Israel for 'civilian' casualties, even going to far as to include ununiformed combatants to skew their statistics. The being said, Hamas and Hezbollah are setting up rockets and headquarters in the middle of residential areas so that any attempt to destroy them will result in civilians. The civilians end up on the evening news. The international community condemns Israel. Nobody comes to their aid. The terrorrists have seen our weaknesses and instead of trying to embrace peace, which is what so many claim their religion means, they are taking advantage of every chink in our armor. If Israel goes down, Europe is next. The barbarians see them as ripe for the picking, just like in the fourth century. Just watch.
