Voice of reason and logic
This morning I heard just three callers into C-Span. The discussion was about the recent attacks on Israel.
I remember the 1967 war. After a naval blockade and the dismissal of UN peacekeepers in place since the 1950s, Israel made a pre-emptive strike, then Israel was attacked by: Egypt, Jordan, Iraq and Syria. In what is also called the Six Day War, Israel scored stunning victories against their Soviet-backed opponents.
The moderator read from a "newspaper" about Israel fighting against Lebanon. The caller on the Republican line simply and correctly stated that Israel is fighting against Hezbollah, which happens to be firing missiles at Israel from Lebanon. Hezbollah had seized two Israeli Soldiers in an across-the-border raid into Israel, an act of war. Lebanon does have a Hamas-led government. The missiles are strongly suspected of being supplied by Iran and Syria.
Thankfully, there are enough intelligent people with some free time to counter the obsolete media that thinks it can "solve" the world's problems.
