Fred Thompson had a nice piece on National Review yesterday. So many people seem to be clueless about the situation in the Middle East. It seems like everyone thinks that because Israel is militarily advantaged that it is the Palestinians who are the victims. The restraint that Israel shows never ceases to amaze me. Far from being unconcerned about the plight of the Palestinians, Israelis constantly exercise restraint in their response to attacks on Israeli citizens. Anyone who doesn’t realize this is blinded by Palestinian propaganda.

Let me ask you a hypothetical question. What do you think America would do if Canadian soldiers were firing dozens of missiles every day into Buffalo, N.Y.? What do you think our response would be if Mexican troops for two years had launched daily rocket attacks on San Diego ? and bragged about it?

I can tell you, our response would look nothing like Israel’s restrained and pinpoint reactions to daily missile attacks from Gaza. We would use whatever means necessary to win the war. There would likely be numerous casualties on our enemy’s side, but we would rightfully hold those who attacked us responsible.

…The irony is that Israel has the military might to easily win the war that is being waged against them today. They haven’t used that might, in the past, out of compassion for Palestinian civilians and because it could trigger a wider regional conflict…
