Liberty is not something that is given to us from the desk or the lectern of the Professor. Or yet-even from the iPad of the journalist. Liberty is something that radiates out from the citizen-soldier; in the context of, CONFIDENT ………….. (and appropriately armed) Civilians.
When I say “appropriately” I may suggest, that in urban life, the high-powered weaponry, that we would own in the city, ought not be loaded with ordnance, that might normally be regarded as lethal.
Palestinians are treated like cattle by their Arab brothers and the UN. They are crushed-up against the Israelis; barbarised, imprisoned, and left in concentration-camp conditions, with enough food as it takes to breed, so as to spawn “living title deeds” and recruits to be sent to their death.
Palestinians are pawns. They are indeed victimized. This is unforgivable victimization; Victimization-most-heinous.
But the victimization comes not from the Israelis, but rather from the UN and the Middle-Eastern elites. Whensoever the Israelis leap-frog the Palestinians and hit out at THE true enemies (the mutual enemies of the Israeli and Palestinian people) then this is a joyous thing, marred only by the innocents, and only marginally culpable, that get set up for death and permanent injury, by the authentic bigshot villains.
But aside from the heartbreak of non-combatant deaths and injuries, caused mainly by the enemy as a conscious strategy…..
Besides this sadness …… It is when the Israeli soldier leap-frogs over the Palestinian people…..
…. This is when he can be said to be really FIGHTING.
When I use the terms FIGHT or FIGHTING, I will mean in the sense as described above. This is why I will place these words in capital letters.
If you are an Australian take a look at this picture.
Do you see that man? Do you see him? Look at him and concentrate for one moment.
He is an Israeli soldier.
See the Israeli soldier.
When he FIGHTS for the lives of Israeli women and children he FIGHTS for Western Values.
When he FIGHTS for the survival of those other than himself, he is FIGHTING for humane civilization.
SEE THE ISRAELI SOLDIER
HE FIGHTS FOR YOUR FREEDOM
HE IS YOUR FRIEND.
