I can't believe it. I just read on Yahoo! News that Israel's Security Council (SC) voted to impose a unilateral cease-fire on the Jewish state's offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Pardon my French but, WHAT THE FUCK?!?!
Ehud Olmert, Israel's left-wing prime minister, claimed that Israel's goals have been achieved because "Hamas was hit hard, in its military arms and its government institutions". For the time being Israeli forces will stay in Gaza but will be willing to leave if and when "the time befits [them]." Excuse me, but I thought the goal of this offensive was to stop Hamas rocket attacks on Israel. Those attacks have continued throughout the campaign, so how on earth can Olmert say that Israel's goals have been met?
Frankly, I was afraid this would happen. Ehud Olmert is a leftist. In June 2005 he distinguished himself by infamously declaring that Israel was "tired of winning;...tired of defeating our enemies ". During the '06 Lebanon war, Olmert insisted that there would be no cease-fire without the unconditional return of the Israeli soldiers whose kidnapping triggered the conflict. But then, in true spineless liberal fashion, he not only accepted a cease-fire agreement, he accepted one that didn't even mention the return of Israel's soldiers. So this current change of events isn't really surprising.
Olmert and the Security Council almost certainly caved to international criticism of Israel's effort to defend itself. I mean, Olmert can't really think that anyone believes his assertion that his nation's objectives have been achieved, especially since Hamas continued to fire rockets into Israel even as Olmert was declaring this abominable cease-fire. No, Olmert and the SC are playing the Israeli left's usual spineless game of trying to make the world love them. The game's never worked but the leftists keep playing it to avoid dealing with the fact that they have no commitment to their own nation's survival. Well, let me tell Olmert, the SC , and the whole of Israel's left something.
No one, and I mean no one, cares about Jews but Jews and the few truly pro-Israel, anti-anti-Semitic gentiles like me. The world is NOT going to be impressed by Israel's latest self-defeating action. No matter how many cease-fires Israel makes with her enemies; no matter how much trust she stupidly puts in the "world community"; no matter how many investigations she conducts into her own actions, the Jew hating world will NOT love her!
It's time for the Israelis--for all Jews everywhere--to wake up and smell the proverbial coffee and defend themselves without any concern for world opinion. The IDF must destroy Hamas. That is what the objective must be. That is what victory must mean, and Israel must accept no option but victory. If Palestinian civilians die in the process, so be it. The Jews can't become obsessively concerned about that. The moral responsibility for those deaths lies squarely with Hamas, which uses its own people as human shields. The Jews must stop succumbing to that phoney morality that says they must let themselves be destroyed in order to prove how civilized they are.
I hope the Israeli people will oppose this cease-fire. I hope they will rise up and demand war until victory, whatever the cost. Why? Because for the most part the Jews, like the Kurds, have no friends, and they need to stop putting their collective head on the chopping block trying to make some. It will never work. The Jew hating world will never be satisfied with anything less than no Jews. Consequently, the Jews must unapologetically commit themselves to victory because, and I'll quote Sir Winston Churchill yet again, without victory there is NO survival.
