"If you prick us, do we not bleed? ... If you poison us, do we not die?"

"To bait fish withal It will feed nothing else,
it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me, and hindered
me half a million, laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains,
scorned my nation, thwarted my bargains, cooled my friends,
heated mine enemies. And what's his reason? I am a
Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands,
organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed
with the same food, hurt with the same weapons,
subject to the same diseases, healed by the same
means, warmed and cooled by the same winter
and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we
not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you
poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall
we not revenge?
If we are like you in the rest, we
will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong
a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge. If
a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance
be by Christian example? Why, revenge. The villainy you
teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard
but I will better the instruction."

The Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare
Act 3, Scene 1, lines 55-76

Why is the media and why are Israel's politicians so upset that the people of Yitzhar have reacted to the murderous aggression, terrorism, of the nearby Arabs?

Why is the media and why are Israel's politicians so sympathetic to the sic "plight" of the Arabs?

Why are we Jews supposed to constantly absorb the blows, the terrorism?

Why are we Jews expected to move away silently and passively and money-grubbingly to DP camps?

Why is "transfer" kosher when Jews are thrown out of their homes, but traif when Arabs are told to be peaceful or leave?

If you believe that Jews have the right to defend themselves against terror, click here and sign the petition.

I just came to this page through Google, but was shocked what I read.
I'll tell you why the media & the world reacts the way they do. Because every time, we all see see that Israel reacts out of proportion.
The world sees that Zionist movement still isn't happy with the land they got, and kept expanding their country out of it's boundaries.
During the last war, there were so many INNOCENT Arab people killed -a whole lot of them were children- because there were relative small bombings that killed less than 100 of Israeli people... Not ALL Arabs are terrorists, do you fail to see that? Do you fail to see in what conditions your neighbour country lives?
Israeli solutions against the terrorism reminds us of WW2. The wall, the imperialism,... things we thought the Jewish Community would never ever think about doing, because they should know better.

I don't get your point. Fewer Israelis have been killed, though more Arab missiles and rockets launched against us for one simple reason. It probably won't make sense to you. I guess you won't even believe me. G-d loves and protects the Jewish People. Arab terrorists are aggressors, and if they cared about their women and children they would stop attacking us. Simple

This is exactly the reason America can not win a war; we have no stomach for it. The last two Americans to truly understand what is necessary in time of war were Major General William Tecumseh Sherman and Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant. They knew what sacrifices must be made if you embark on the path of war and they had to employ this which is now termed Total war and Scorched Earth on none but their own countrymen. If we are not willing to do what we must then we remain as slaves.

And just to be clear, I am not a Zionist or a Jew or Christian. If it is important, I am a Hermetisist.
