Citing the recent efforts of the Isrealis to destroy the countries trying to destroy them... http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/07/ ... index.html I was wondering whether or not this is sending out the wrong message to the jewish youth about how to handle being bullied. Suppose I pick on the local fundamental jew... which ever type we pick. I call attention to his yamaka (sp?), point and giggle, maybe even try to cut his curly locks from under his hat... whatever... Should I expect jets and tanks to come burn down my house, blow up my drive way, and bomb my yard? I'm in no way condoning the actions of the kidnappers in anyway here... I'm just wondering if the political machine there knows that when they react with such force that DOES NOT immediately effect the kidnappers themselves, nor does yeild any constructive results, it doesnt help their situation, it doesnt make anyone feel safer, and it doesnt stop. This perpetual, its never ending... now we can expect violence to escalate past the levels we are used to and Israel will be soon be on the top of most terror lists as well. I am I the only one scared by this?
