In April 2011 The Jerusalem Post published the lengthy article, ‘Editor’s Notes: The Moralist’, by David Horovitz.
On 5ht of June 2011 hundreds of Syrians have decided to partake in “Naksa” Day, the day the Six Day War begun. To commemorate their loss in this war, this mob thought it could simply make its way into the territorial land of Israel with impunity.
The UN, once again, was immediately at its usual anti-Israel slogan. Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, chastised Israel over the Golan border clash. Pillay expressed her concerns over the Israeli forces’ use of live ammunition against, simply, protesters who were about to cross enemy lines into Israel.
It is now rather clear that the Syrian authorities encouraged the civilians to protest in an area where landmines had been planted. More, so, Israel warned its neighboring countries to halt the protestors’ march as she will not hesitate to practice her full sovereign right to protects her borders and her citizens.
An army that announces, in time, to the government and to the civilian population its upcoming attacks, through leaflets, thrown from helicopters, through text messages it sends to all the mobile phones of the companies that provide cellular service to the area designated for an attack, and by announcements from vehicles, passing through the streets, is a humane army.
Do you know of any other army in the Arab and/or Western world that behaves more ethically than the Israeli army? No!
Which country has a moral army that behaves as the Israeli military behaves? None, not even one!
In Israel’s case, fighting terror organizations, when terrorist organizations and advocates of war – not peace – take advantage of civilian population and use them as political tool or human shields, the whole world roars of Israel’s harshness and immediately shows pictures of “innocent” protestors carried in coffins to their burial, or children who died because Israel had to attack the terrorists who were hiding behind women and children in their neighborhood. All this, despite the fact that the responsibility rests on the shoulders of the terrorists, who are willing to sacrifice their children.
Terrorists insert venom, hatred and incitement; they elect to fight from areas of dense population for one, to prevent the IDF to be able to respond immediately, and, when the IDF retaliates and there are fatalities, they can use images to create solidarity among world public opinion that will jump at any occasion to show its anti-Israel sentiments.
We have to chase these terrorists and strike them as hard as possible, for one, to show to the world their warfare methods and the clean hands of the Israeli army on the other hand. Only then Israel can, both, deter terrorism and, finally, expose the network of lies these loathsome people use, as long as they enjoy the West’s support, from the UN, European countries and various haters and opponents of the State of Israel.
I don’t believe in altruism fighting. I don’t believe in proportionate warfare. The whole concept of war is to defeat your enemy and to prevent him from ever coming back.
I believe that if your enemy threatens you, you do not wait until they attacks. I believe that you need to kill your enemy before they kills you.
I believe that if the enemy hides among civilian population, you kill them all because it is their problem being there, not yours.
I believe that if the enemy has a cache of weapons, you blow it all up before they can use it.
If you know where your enemy weapons’ supply comes from, destroy the supply and the suppliers.
I believe that if a terrorist is captured, he should be executed after he is drained of all vital information.
I believe that if you know where the enemy leaders are, you assassinate them, as soon as you possibly can.
Make me the Commander in Chief and I will end the belligerence without further ado.
Good guys do not win in wars. What is the use of having a potent military if one does not use it to its maximum capability?
Rather brunt, but some thoughts to digest!
