Israel and Disproportionate Response

Here's a question for you liberals: if 5 thugs came in to rob your business and shot your manager and were ready to kill you, would you, if you had a pistol, shoot all 5 dead? Or would you instead, have a debate inside your head that goes like this:

  • Well, they only killed one so far, perhaps I should wait to see if in fact they don't kill me...
  • Damn, there's five of them, if I kill them all, someone may say it was a disproportionate response since only one of my team got killed and I killed 5. It doesn't seem fair...
  • Hmmm, it's possible that one of the five is someone's son who will miss him and cry if I kill him...
  • Violence never solves anything, I should just let them rob me and hope for the best...
  • Perhaps I can reason with them, after all, they're human beings just like me...

There are bigoted idiots in the blogosphere who think that Israel killing hundreds of Palestinians when only 15 Israelis died is morally wrong.

Here's the problem: your house is surrounded by 100 thugs who throw grenades into your home every day. Because you have a good security system, you are forewarned that a grenade is coming your way so most of the time you are lucky. You take your family into the cellar and during the course of a year two of your children are killed. You keep asking the thugs to stop but they do not listen. Finally you can't take it anymore and you shoot 25 of them and your hope is to kill all of them. To try to protect themselves, some of the thugs shield themselves with family members and in fact have their own children propelling the grenades hoping you won't shoot them. Unfortunately there is no way to kill the thugs without injuring their family members. Some leftwing-violence-doesn't-solve-anything moron reads in the paper that you killed 25 thugs and some poor innocent women and children while barely two of your family have died. He calls your actions extreme. Since there are only 5 in your family (actually now 3), you shouldn't kill more than 5 of them. Is there a name for such a morally-bankrupt imbecile?

Hey, Liberal idiot, if there weren't tens of thousands of Hamas terrorists lobbing missiles into Israel there wouldn't be this many to shoot at.

The First Disproportionate Response by Israelites

Moses is to blame for this. Over 3,500 years ago, he wiped out the entire Egyptian army even though not one single Jew died, "And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them." (Exodus 14:28)

And it's been like that ever since.
