Just last summer, the world was complaining, unabashedly, that not enough Jews/Israelis had been killed in our war with the Gazans. They didn’t like the disproportionate numbers of Arab dead verses Jewish dead. The Arabs attacked more, but fewer of us died and more of them did. They bandied around the word “disproportionate” as it it was a mystical formula that proved Israeli cruelty to Arabs. In theory, they would have had approved of our defensive actions better if more of us had been killed, but Gd in His Mercy refused to cooperate. And of course one of the reasons for the disproportionate numbers could have been that the Arabs were exaggerating their dead… Now, the world and too many Israelis are up in arms against the possibly one or few Israelis who allegedly firebombed an Arab house burning a toddler to death.
If anything is disproportionate it’s this.
Count the amount of Arab attacks on Jews versus the retaliations of Jews against Arabs.
So compare the numbers. What do you think? I think that Disproportionate is the word. Disproportionately too many Arab attacks on Jews have been happening. Actually the numbers have always been similar.
We are not supposed to grin and bear it, turn the other cheek etc. What we must do is the stop the terrorism, and being pacifists isn’t the way!! If you want to do it legally, there’s one way. Apply the law of Arab terrorists and institute mandatory death penalty on all attempts at murder, whether, shooting, stoning, stabbing or firebombs. And let those convicted terrorists threatening hunger strikes starve to death. Most will voluntarily begin to eat.
