Letter to Editor: Israel unprepared for Gaza flotilla terrorists
Editor, San Diego Jewish World
More bad stuff centering on Gaza. Of course it was provocation and the desire for “martyrs” from the beginning. But if everyone else saw this coming, how could Israel have been so unprepared? Israel’s position was simple and clear: namely, that baring preinspection for munitions before sailing, then the ships would be permitted to disembark in Israel for inspection and then to proceed. And how could an “aid” mission not be concerned with the Israeli victim, Gilad Schalit? But an international press message cannot get through if said once, and by now, Israel should know this. The message needed daily retiteration to the international press and the UN. Now, instead, there are 9 dead people, and other injuries, including to IDF soldiers and Israel is blamed for all of it.
There is a simple message, as already spoken by others, but that needs repeating: “If first the Arabs lay down their arms there will be peace—if first Israel lays down its arms it will be destroyed.”
