I am dismayed at the various responses from Europeans decrying Israel. I respect Europeans desire and respect for human rights. But, frankly, Israel was created because of the horror that was the Holocaust. Israel was attacked in 1967, and won, gaining a substantial portion of land. To act like Israel somehow 'conquered' that land is very disingenuous. Implying that Israel's people, who are constantly threateded with destruction, somehow are not attempting to act in self-defense, is silly. I do not always agree with Israel's' actions. But rememmber, during WW2, appeasement is what allowed Hitler's murderous regime to flourish. Israel may be too zealous in acting in self defense, but self defense is the intent. Again, Europeans, as an American I respect your principals. But unfortunately, pacifism is not always the only answer. World War 2 showed us this.
