"ALL CAPS IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY IS NO VICE."

IS THERE A UNIVERSAL RIGHT TO NATIONAL DEFENSE, OR, IS THERE A UNIVERSAL RIGHT TO NATIONAL DEFENSE FOR EVERY NATION EXCEPT ISRAEL???

HMMM: WHAT IF:
ISRAEL has vowed to fight HAMAS until they are "annihilated", after attacks killed 11 soldiers.

PM BIBI NETANYAHU said Saturday's "cowardly" assaults would not end ISRAEL’S determination to fight HAMAS "to the end".

The army said it had retaliated with a helicopter attack that killed at least 12 rebels.

There has been a sharp increase in the number of recent clashes with the HAMAS.

On Friday the ISRAELI military said it had killed about 120 HAMAS since March, while 43 members of the ISRAELI security forces had also died.

Rebels killed nine soldiers in a raid on an outpost near the Iraqi border early on Saturday, in the deadliest attack against the ISRAELI military since April 2009, when nine soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb that was blamed on the HAMAS.

The deaths of 11 men in a single day will certainly harden official attitudes towards the HAMAS.

In a country where every soldier's funeral whips up a frenzy of nationalist sentiment, Mr NETANYAHU's party is vulnerable to charges of selling out to terrorists, because of its efforts last year to promote a softer approach to the conflict.

The increasingly bold attacks by the HAMAS this year have effectively killed off that initiative, although it was already running out of steam.

But after 26 years and 40,000 deaths, few officials can be under any illusion that just throwing more military forces at the HAMAS along the Iraqi border can finish the movement off.

Later on Saturday, two soldiers were killed in a mine explosion while attempting to capture rebels near the border.

As well as responding with helicopter attacks, ISRAEL launched air raids on HAMAS positions inside GAZA territory.
IF THIS WAS A REAL NEWS ITEM, THEN IT WOULD BE FOLLOWED BY CALLS FOR SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL.

BUT IT ISN'T A REAL NEWS ITEM - NOT ABOUT ISRAEL, AT LEAST.

IT'S REALLY ABOUT TURKEY:

BBC: Turkey has vowed to fight Kurdish rebels until they are "annihilated", after attacks killed 11 soldiers.

PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday's "cowardly" assaults would not end Turkey's determination to fight the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) "to the end".

The army said it had retaliated with a helicopter attack that killed at least 12 rebels.

There has been a sharp increase in the number of recent clashes with the PKK.

On Friday the Turkish military said it had killed about 120 Kurdish rebels since March, while 43 members of the Turkish security forces had also died.

Rebels killed nine soldiers in a raid on an outpost near the Iraqi border early on Saturday, in the deadliest attack against the Turkish military since April 2009, when nine soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb that was blamed on the PKK.

The deaths of 11 men in a single day will certainly harden official attitudes towards the PKK.

THE WORLD ACCEPTS TURKEY'S POSITION. BUT IT DOESN'T ISRAEL'S.

WHY THE DIFFERENCE IN TREATMENT?

  • IT CAN'T BE THE NUMBER OF CASUALTIES: IN THE LAST 26 YEARS, MORE KURDS HAVE BEEN KILLED BY TURKS THAN GAZANS OR ARABS BY ISRAEL.
  • IN FACT, MUSLIMS HAVE KILLED 100X ARABS THAN JEWS HAVE - SOMETIMES EVEN USING WMD, AS ASSAD DID AND SADDAM DID!!

SO WHY IS THERE ONE RULE FOR TURKEY AND ANOTHER FOR ISRAEL?

BY DEFINITION IT'S ANTISEMITISM.

AND IT WILL NOT STAND.
