The one thing I will never understand is why all the celebrity protesters come out of the woodwork whenever Israel starts to defend herself from her enemies. After calling for Israel to stop its attacks on Gaza, Annie Lennox said violence could never be a solution to conflict.

First of all, let's define "violent":
- Physical force exerted for the purpose of violating, damaging, or abusing: crimes of violence.
- an unjust or unwarranted exertion of force or power, as against rights or laws: to take over a government by violence.

Now let's define "violence":
- acting with or characterized by uncontrolled, strong, rough force: a violent earthquake.

No one would say the IDF is uncontrolled. The moonbats out there could easily twist this around and say that Israel is "violating" Gaza or "using an unjust exertion of force" in Gaza, but once you define "violence" you see that the word is implies an uncontrolled, primitive force.

Much like a Kassam rocket. Strong enough to do violent damage to a home or a person, but not in a controlled, orderly manner.

Like an army.

Israel is not acting violent, Israel is acting like a nation being attacked. Israel is sending her army in to stop the enemy in a strategic manner. Yes, people die in a war. Death from a military strike can be a violent death. But a strategically dropped missile in a justifiable military action is not violence.

Sending primitive, but lethal rockets into areas whose target you can't specify, so you hit kindergardens, playgrounds and livingrooms? That's violence. And where were Annie Lennox and Bianca Jagger* when these rockets were raining down on Israeli children? Having their nails done?

So I can't help but conclude that their silence means that Jewish children don't matter. If rockets are landing on Jewish kindergardens and playgrounds and the world doesn't cry out in horror, it can only mean that the lives of Jewish children are disposable.

And yet they call us Nazis.

*You can add Roseanne Barr to the list, too. Why are there so many Jews who don't care about Jews getting killed?
