'israel determined to be fair' shock

Perhaps in a bid to prove itself an equal opportunities slaughterer of civilians, Israel has decided that the wholesale butchery of palestinians and lebanese is not a sustainable policy - hurrah!
it is conscripting reservists presumably to try and equalise the non-military casualties - boo! I'm not sure quite what Israel hopes to gain by this - it could be a bid for international symapthy:
'look what those nasty hamas/hezbollah are doing to our innocent youth'
'err so are we'.

Sorry chaps - apart from the highly dubious logic, you must realise that virtually every nation on earth is against you - arab nations on principle and the rest of us because we just don't like your foreign policy (for which the usual british pro-israel journalists will trot out the usual tired accusations of anti-semitism, holocaust denial and err leaves on the line).
The one honourable exception - America - is perfectly happy to see you do their dirty work of making life unpleasant for whichever bunch of nasty islamists (or maronite christians for that matter - well they're all the same, really) they bump into. Maybe the fragrant Ms Rice believes that if al quaeda and related nasty islamist purveyors of death hate Israel more than the US they'll start crashing planes into whatever the Israeli army/hezbollah haven't bombed to rubble and leave god's chosen people alone (nice irony there, I think).
Well it's a plan...and Mr Quaeda and his bomb-toting chums seem to have bought it, because they have announced that they will indeed turn their attentions to Israel. You'd have thought they would already be keeping their hands in as it were by being beastly to Israelis, but hey... So; more joy for the poor bloody Israeli man/woman/child on the street/in the gutter/in bits/bleeding to death on the Tel Aviv omnibus. Nice one boys! What have you for us next???

    you shall be hating me for disagreeing... oh well.
    See, the problm ISrael has is that... they have a leadership that's quite happy to send young people to war whilst keeping their own offspring away from the reaches of the IDF. In the mean time, I have friends thathave to live in fear of getting bombed, friends who got sent to the warzone immediately after returnign from holiday... and whole lot of young people who have to get bombed, go to war and die for the sake of maintaining a racist state policy and a conflit that could have been solved out decently 6 years ago.

    I don't blame the israeli people because they are just as well trapped into teh war machine as we are, only that in Btritain and the USA we're somewhat safer.

    Their government however... (

    Soopermouse - au contraire. I certainly wouldn't hate you for disagreeing and I am grateful to you for posting - as I am to everyone who comes up with something sane to say about this mad old world.

    However I do want to stress what I have said in this post as well as those of July 9 and August 14 and 18 (on ceasefire and victory): that all the killing is the same to me, all wrong and all must stop. I certainly don't regard the Israeli population as the problem; they are in the frontline (not a place for civilians to be living IMO) and victims of their weirdly illogical government, hence my comment in this post:
    'more joy for the poor bloody Israeli man/woman/child on the street/in the gutter/in bits/bleeding to death on the Tel Aviv omnibus'. Not to mention the pretty appalling nature of the leaders of Hezbolah/Hamas and their cavalier attitude to the deaths of Israeli and their own civilians. Nobody anywhere should have to spend their life cowering in bomb shelters - and if they go on to develop some negative thoughts about the people they regard as responsible for the missiles then that is only to be expected and fuels the continuing hate and murder spree. All great news for the dick-swingers on both sides.

    Which is a long-winded way of saying that, far from disagreeing with you, I endorse the comments in your post.
    Thanks for visiting - I enjoy your site (well enjoy isn't really appropriate given the painful nature of lots of what you write about, but you know what I mean) and I hope you'll be back to read, comment and disagree as appropriate.
