The Golda Standard
Three quotes from Golda Meir:

"I have given instructions that I be informed every time one of our soldiers is killed, even if it is in the middle of the night. When President Nasser leaves instructions that he is to be awakened in the middle of the night if an Egyptian soldier is killed, there will be peace." -Golda Meir

"Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us." -Golda Meir

"When peace comes we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons." -Golda Meir

I don't agree with everything the Israelis do, but there's a whole different psychology at work in a culture that celebrates sending its children out to be blown up, and puts terrorist organizations in residential buildings. I still can't get the picture out of my mind of "the Arab street" cheering about 9-11. Who cheers when other human beings die?

i'm telling you Amy...the only way to deal with these Islama-nazi's is to do what Israel is doing now. i have some reservations about us being in Iraq (i think we went after the wrong idiots), but this is a different story....

Also, i hate the fact that the media shows all of this death and destruction, painting Israel and the US as being the bad guys....it's unfortunate that innocent folks are getting killed, but i don't remember ever seeing footage from WWII being sympathetic to the Axis powers.
