i think the thing that annoyed most of all was that shimon peres had the gall to assure "the people" that in the "battle for the moral high ground", Israel won

Why doesn't Mr. Peres ask the 60 million or so who died after Neville Chamberlain dropped that stupid line on Europe in October 1938 how that worked out?
I don't know if I asked this before, but how close are you to your nasty neighbors to the north (and yes, I know that you live in one real small country)?

More Events On This Day
"1946: A violent Jewish right-wing underground movement in Palestine, the Irgun Zvai Leumi, blew up a wing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, killing 91 [British] soldiers and civilians."
The Stern Gang (!) was another active group back then. Some members of both became instant "statesmen" in 1948.
Something better is needed.
However, I refuse to live in the past. The present is that a group of Islamofascist thugs dedicated to the destruction of Israel are massed in southern Lebanon in larger numbers and with more arms than it had in 2006.
The future is for more attacks by Hezbollah, more death and destruction in Israel - until and unless it can be made to leave the dogs of war in their cages. Since that's highly unlikely to happen in a peaceful manner, this time Israel will face a true Hobson's choice. Option one is to resolve to fight another half war against Hezbollah, bowing to the words on an "international community" which if the truth be known, cares nothing about Israel or Jews. Option two is to fight a real war against the terrorists, devastating all of southern Lebanon in the process and angering those whose influence in the world is not matched by their evenhandedness or responsible statesmanship.
For my part, I'd rather see Israel take option two, as it will get only the opprobrium of the closet Jew haters regardless of what choice it makes.
You may not be interested in War, but War is interested in you. - Leon Trotsky
Ps 46:9 He is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth.

And satisfying the desire of every living thing.
