Peace in Our Time?
Yet another bombing in Israel
, 18 more Israeli civillians dead.
When will the world unequivocally, without reservaiton, without any attempt at explanation or understanding or justification, condemn these barbaric attacks?
Oh, right. Never. It's all about "Palestinian Rage", it's all about the occupation, it's all about Israeli oppresion. Oh, sure, the Palestinian Authority will "regret" this latest attack, but only in the mildest of terms. And the rest of the world press will likely ignore it, or wring its hands about the "cycle of violence" and the misery and horror that forces young Palestinians to go to such lengths.
And this latest atrocity may be just the first
in a planned series of attacks. Apparently Hizbullah plans to up the ante, with the support and (presumably) approval of Syria and Iran.
But of course that
is never condemned, certainly not among the elites of Europe or, for that matter, the U.S. State Department. Because it would upset our fragile "coalition", I assume.
Madness, all of it. We tolerate this barbarity from the Palestinians, we excuse it, we turn our heads and look away from the overt support given to the terrorists by Arab governments, both morally and materially.
As has been noted in this space before, pretty much every Arab state is a kleptocracy, run solely for the benefit of its despotic leaders; and whose policies both foreign and domestic are geared entirely towards the goal of keeping said despotic leaders in power, with no regard whatsoever to the good of their people, their neighbors, or regional stability. Pretty much every single Arab government ought to be removed, by force, and replaced by a military governor from the U.S. or other civilized Western nation, and thhose military governors should be tasked with the job of educating and civilizing the populations of those Arab states, and building proper institutions necessary for the running and proper functioning of a modern, prosperous, civilized, democratic nation. Such a solution would be better for the Arab people themselves, for the region as a whole, for world stability, and for the West; in short, it would be better for absolutely everyone except the actual despots themselves - and their well-being ought to be the last thing on anyone's mind.
If we do that, support for the Palestinian terrorists would be removed, and the Palestinian people would be forced to accept the fact that Israel isn't going away, and no one will reward them for murdering civillians, and, eventually, they would come back to the peace table ready to make real, lasting agreements that would serve both their interests and those if the Israeli people.
