Israel Squandering Good Will

Letter to the Editor

In 1947 the world community gave Israel to the Jewish community in sympathy for the holocaust. For the last 60 years Israel has been considered a good member of the civilized world for the most part who only went to war when it had to and after it had been attacked. But this new war is different and unjustified. A nation doesn’t start a war over 2 hostages. If we started a war every time a few hostages were captured the entire planet would always be at war.

The people of the world like to stand with the country that is morally right. We want to support the “good guys” in any conflict. In this case however Israel is not the good guys and some of the people they are attacking are not the bad guys. Israel has shown an arrogance and an indifference towards the lives of civilians including its own citizens and have brought war to the world community, as if we need more of that. I used to think that a Jewish state was a good idea but now I realize that any time any nation falls under control of a religion that they become war like and irrational. Israel may win the battles but they are losing the support of the world and in the long run they might find themselves shunned and isolated. I believe that there is a price for an unjust war and I don’t think Israel understands the true cost of their poor judgment.

You know what the creation of Israel really did? It cut into 6 country’s lands/borders and totally covered Palestinian territory and made the entire region unstable. Did you know they built a horrible wall trapping and dividing and almost imprisoning all the Palestinians in the area. What was poor judgment was making the country in the first place, maybe they should have established it on U.S. soil. Cut our borders up and see if we wouldn’t attack.

made a mistake actually it was 4 countries that Israel cuts borders with but still proves my point.

I used to think that the Israel’s air strikes were an overkill against Lebanon’s infrastructure. There was obliviously a military build up in residential areas; those areas were fired upon provided sympathy for Hezbollah. Israel is surrounded by Islamic nation’s hell bent on its destruction. So I guess its matter of survival and creating a buffer.
