'We didn't mean to, but we lied to our kids'

From Daniel Gordis:
"Why should children living in uncontested Israeli territory grow up being taught that in the playground, when the siren goes off, you run into the caterpillar, and hope that the rocket doesn't kill any of your friends who don't make it in time?

"These weeks, with the question of whether or not Jewish sovereignty means anything at all, there is really only one question. As Joshua said to the angel (Joshua 5:13), "are you for us, or for our adversaries?" Do you believe that Jews in Sederot have a right to live without bomb-shelter caterpillars in their playgrounds?

"Do you understand that the only point of having a Jewish state is that Jews should no longer live - and die - at the whim of those who hate us just because we exist?"

And this from Victor David Hanson at NRO:
"There is something especially nauseating about the latest Middle East war — scenes of worldwide Islamic protests with photos of Jews as apes, protesters (in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida of all places!) screaming about nuking Israel and putting Jews in ovens, parades of children dressed up with suicide vests and fake rockets, near constant anti-Semitic vicious sloganeering, Gaza mosques stuffed with rockets to be used against civilians — all to be collated with creepy Hamas rhetoric about the annihilation of Israel. This is the world in which we now live."

The largest threat to Israel is the media which refuses to report balanced stories on Israel: refuses to show maimed and murdered Israelis, their body parts in trees from buses that were target to cause the most civilian damage,the innocents at restaurants and hotels who were murdered and maimed by Palestinian terrorists, follow-up stories on the maimed civilians who live with nails in their internal organs from homocide bombers. It's truely disgusting - I'd love to see these media personnel living in Israel, G-d forbid that they were on one of those buses, one would think they'd have a different perspective. Oh yes, and what if 1000's of bombs blasted upon them and their children for years, and their govt did nothing to stop it because of international pressure? These hypocrites need to go and live in Sderot and see how it feels. The problem is, if any of this were happening to a non-Jewish entity, the media and the leftists would be in an outrage of moral indignation over it! where's the moral outrage over the years of murders and maimings of Israeli civilians, of the outright acts of war upon Israel? where's the praise for self-restraint and trying to negotiate for peace? Everyone knows arabs have no intention of negotiating, it buys them time and they see it as a weekness, because their creedo is to kill all Jews, and to take over Israel. On the same scale or worse is the stupid leftist Jews who are ignorant to the fact that the pals don't love them, a Jew is a Jew is a Jew, arabs don't care where a Jew holds religiously, they will kill a reform/secular/conservative Jew as readily as a religious Jew. So Jews, wake up, especially you Jews in the media: no one is on your side except other Jews, your fake non-Jewish friends are rearing their vile anti-Semetic heads now because the world has given the green light go-ahead by pressuring Israel to negotiate with those who seek our total destruction. Um, just look at the arabsin NYC and FL protesting, even 'socialized' arabs are dangerous, they can't be trusted, they are using American society to further their own goals, but have zero alligience to Am culture, society, govt, etc, just as Israeli arabs have no alligience to the very country that grants them such a high standard of living, in contrast to their arab brethren who would rather murder them and strap bobms to their own children then feed them and give them infrastructure. And the millions from the world that have been sent to Gaza? Is it being used for the greenhouses left behind in Gush Katif so they could feed themselves and creat employment opportunities? Those greenhouses produced 15% of the GNP of Israel, what could they have produce for the pals? Wheres the moral indignation over this?
