I've been watching the latest iteration of the Israeli / Palestinian conflict with some considerable dread, not least for the inevitable display of lefty mongosity that comes with these things.

"Disproportionate response" is the most frequent charge levelled against the Israeli government, and it probably is disproportionate. On the other hand, how many rockets does Hamas have to launch before the Israeli response is considered proportionate? Would these same lefties be more forgiving if Israel's response was to simply launch an endless stream of low-grade rockets into Gaza? Would that be acceptable?

But the thing that really grips my shit about the lefty wibbling is the question of intent.

Normally, lefties will justify any old fucking shit on the basis that the intent of the measure was good. Yes, we pissed money away on that cause to no avail, but the idea behind it was good, so it's OK.

What do these cretins think the intent of the rocket launches into Israel are? It's to kill people. If the rockets weren't dangerous, people wouldn't pay them any fucking notice.

But now, suddenly, the intent of the rockets - killing innocent Jewish civilians - is irrelevant, because they rarely do. How the fuck does that work then?

Either intent doesn't matter, in which case lefties need to 'fess up to the results of their economic stupidity or intent does matter and lefties need to accept that Israel's response to the rockets is justifiable self-defence.

You can't have your cake and eat it.

Israel is good at shooting down the incoming ordnance. Perhaps its a bit dumb to attack a superior fighting force and not expect to come off worse. But hey, the fuzzy wuzzys are big on being martyrs

I am eternally confused by the whole Israel / Palestine thing.

Is it actually Palestinian's firing the rockets, or is it just a flash point where upset Arab's/Muslims fighting against the 'enemy' come to fire weapons in a war of attrition? i.e. leading to the restriction of goods

It's not surprising that you are confused by the whole thing, the MSM are so biased against Israel that few people realise what is going on. You have to tune into Israeli news websites to get a truer picture.
