When the final bombs and shells explode, when the guns fall silent, when Israel finally decides it can rest from it’s self-imposed cleansing task, I hope the rest of the world will ponder why all the loud calls for a ceasefire from only the Israelis? Haven’t seen many calls over the previous six years about the deadly games of ‘tag’ which the killers from Hezbollah played with the lives of ordinary Israelis as they fired their indiscriminate volleys of explosive-laden rockets into the Northern Galilee! I haven’t seen many calls for condemnation coming from the same mouths who are crying for a ceasefire now that Israel has decided that, for once, enough is enough; and the murderers are going to be taught a lesson!
My only question to be asked of Israel is simple:
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO WAIT SO LONG?
