I haven't said anything about the whole situation over there in Lebabnon and Israel. I'll weigh in on it, I guess.
That should about cover it.
Well, I guess I can elaborate somewhat.
For those of you who think Israel is being too harsh, what would you have them do?
You either agree that Israel has a right to exist, or it doesn't. If it does, then the Israelis have the right to self-defense, to protect their citizens from attack, and to police their borders. If you think Israel does not have that right, then there's no sense discussing this any more.
History shows us that conceding land to people in order to forestall a war doesn't really work too well. Remember the Sudetenland that Hitler ended up with? Chamberlain thought it would stop there. Israel pulled out of the West Bank, and trouble just got closer to home.
The only way to deal with evil is to wipe it out. This is a very simple concept. Israel understands this. Their survival depends on it. Biblically speaking, the forces opposing Israel are the enemy. Pure and simple. Secularly, the forces opposing Israel are supporting terrorism, and advocating the establishment of sharia worldwide. That makes them evil, no matter what one's religious views on the subject.
So all that remains is to stay out of Israel's way, and they'll deal with the terrorism problem. They'll deal with it in the only way that will work. Break the backs of the terrorists and those who sponsor them.
