I'm an Israeli soldier !

Engough already!
About time too :)

 Col. Richard Kemp, former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan:
 ‘During its operation in Gaza, the Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.’

When speaking in Tel Aviv to a group of young professionals and soldiers Col. Richard Kemp, opened his speech like this:

“First of all, please allow me to say what a great honor it is for me to stand in the same room as those of you in IDF uniforms. You might think that you’re simply defending your country, but in fact you are defending mine, too. You are fighting for the whole Western world, and you are at the front lines of the battle...”

^^^^^^Well worth defending, dont you think?^^^^^^

"…The world as a whole, not just the occasional liberal brat, will continue being disappointed in Israel for not having magically and non-violently resolved the dilemma of people shooting at it no matter what it does. After all there's already a book titled, "How to Make Peace in the Middle East in Six Months or Less" on the shelf. Why not just read it and do what it says?" 
Daniel Greenfield (aka Sultan Knish)
