Eretz Yisrael Time

Way, way back in January, I wrote a post that discussed a conversation I had with some left-wing friends in Tel Aviv.

We discussed the missile threat from Gaza, and they pooh-poohed any and all missile threats and said that missiles aren’t effective weapons and they are no big deal militarily (they also dismissed Hizbollah, but I didn't mention it in the context of that post).

Since the war I haven’t discussed with them the missile threat and how “ineffective” a military weapon they are.

I’ve been thinking about it, you know, giving them a good 'ol “I told ya so”.

But I’ve decided it would be a waste of time.

They’ll simply come up with some convoluted sophist answer why it was different and it wasn’t what they meant. Some might even say they were wrong, but so what, we still need to amputate the Jewish heartland for whatever their convoluted, distorted logic.

I really recommend reading the old post to get a better idea of the attitude that brought us Lebanon this summer.

In my comments I wrote, It was an epiphany that explained why all my Tel Aviv friends quite explicitly (and until then, inexplicably) don’t give a damn that missiles are falling on us from Gaza.”

Of course Lebanon is old history already (except to some of the reserve soldiers).

So I’m going to save my words for people who actually listen to what I have to say (that’s you guys).
