Surest sign Israel is winning: 'World leaders' call for 'halt' to 'violence'

Where were Monkey Moon and the other 'world leaders' for the last seven years when the 'Palestinians' were shooting rockets into Israel from Gaza? Where were they in the three years since Israel left Gaza and the rocket fire intensified. And as to you Mr. Sarcozy, go stick your snotty French nose up your you-know-what. It's got to be disproportionate. What do you want us to do? Shoot one rocket at a time? Going after the shooters within thirty seconds hasn't worked real well, has it?
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said he was "deeply alarmed" by the vlence and bloodshed, and called on both sides to restore calm.

Both Russia and the European Union called on both sides to cease hostility immediately, while France's President Nicolas Sarkozy went further in his criticism calling Israel's reaction to Hamas's provocations "disproportionate."

Quartet Representative Tony Blair said: "The terrible events and tragic loss of life in Gaza require, in the immediate term, the introduction of a genuine calm in which the rocket attacks aimed at killing Israeli civilians and the Israeli attacks on Gaza cease so that the suffering of the people, which is severe, can be lifted."
How about some moral equivalence, eh Tony? When the Germans bombed Britain, did you call for the RAF to cease fire too?

But here's the amazing part: Even the Arabs see what's going on here.
But the Egyptian leadership was also highly critical of Hamas, with Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit saying the organization had ignored Israeli warnings that rocket attacks must stop.
Unfortunately, no quotes go with that part of the story.

I was looking for some high brow discussion of the issues - thanks for providing confirmation that there is no excuse for Israel's total disregard for human life.

I was hoping Israel would flatten Gaza and dare the UN to do something about it! Just like the RAF did to Dresden in the 40s!

I meant Carl - Sir Arthur "The Bomber" Harris' air campaign against Nazi Germany. He left nothing standing and felt Germany wasn't worth the loss of a single British Grenadier. Israel should follow his example in Gaza. War is no place for moral squeamishness or misplaced mercy but demands extreme ruthlessness and utter brutality to crush the enemy so he is completely vanquished. That is the Art Of War.
