Today’s logic, seems to be, if you do something to someone else, and they retaliate, then you have the right to retailate back, because they returned the favor. This is shown in the latest skirmishes between the terror group Hamas, and Israel, as reported in the news this morning.
To me, this is stupidity gone wild. Here is what happened.
Israeli warplanes fired missiles, in response to Hamas firing a big powerful rocket into the Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon on Friday. Now, in my way of thinking, if someone attacks you, then you have the right to fight back. But that is where the sanity in this ends. Hamas started this one, after weeks of relative calm between the two, and they fired a missile into the heart of an Israeli city. Thank God no one was killed in that attack, but Israel showed Hamas that they would not take having their cities bombed without retaliation…….and rightfully so. The stupidity comes in when Hamas decided this….
A Hamas spokesman said the militant group would avenge their leaders killing……which happened when Israel retaliated the Hamas attack.
“Hamas will not be quiet over the blood of its martyrs,” said Hamad al-Rakab. “Israel is opening all the gates of fire. This blood will cascade into rage and fire,” al-Rakab said.
I think that Hamas figures, that since their original attack on Israel didn’t kill anyone, but Israel’s fighting back did kill someone, then retribution is deserved. Are they insane? Yes they are! They are the ones that started it. Who the hell cares if they lost a leader when Israel retaliated? They started it. If they hadn’t, their rocket maker would still be alive.
I just hope, that if Hamas does the stupid thing here, which we all know they will, that Israel stops listening to the world community who seems to think that she should never fight back, and goes balls to the wall and destroys Hamas. Sorry folks, but I am on Israel’s side on this one. I just think that Hamas is showing the world “sour grapes” on this because they lost one of their leading rocket makers in the personage of Issa Batran, 42, the commander of the groups’ military wing in central Gaza, who was also one of their senior rocket makers. My response to Hamas on this one is: OH BOO HOO! If you can’t take the retaliation to your attacks, then stop attacking others! It is as simple as that. Because no matter what you all think, if you attack someone, they WILL retaliate. Human nature.
Of course, if you think it is your right to retaliate against someone who is only defending themselves against your attacks, then go for it. That will give the people you are attacking the right to annihilate you. And on that one, I am also on Israel’s side. Happy days to you, you terrorists….
