    If every soldier in Israel refused to protect Israel, there would be no Israel. I hope Amir Fester knows the history of Israel and those who died so Amir could have a country to call his own. I would like to ask Amir "What happens if Israel lays down its arms?" Answer: Hezbollah does not go away and they still have their weapons for future use. Every one thinks we (Israel) can just talk our way to peace. Tell me when this talking has worked. Has talking succeeded with Hamas, Al Queda, Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade, Taliban, etc. etc? Only elimination works with terrorism. Now go out there and protect your country, Amir. If not, move to Damascus. I am sure they can use your diplomatic expertise. Go IDF!!! Tora, Tora, Tora.
