Comments for entry Defense
I think you should get better at expressing your thoughts. I think what you are trying to say is that Israel has the right to defend itself and that by being strong it gains respect. I agree. But when you say things like "the strongest one deserves to rule" you are using Nazi terminology. And when you say whoever can kick the other guy's ass deserves the land, you are moving into rhetoric that will only hurt you in the end. Because by that mentality you are saying to the enemies of Israel that they should arm to the teeth and build up their strength and destroy Israel, because there is no morality, its just whoever kicks ass wins.
You also hurt Israel in another way. Because if people read your posts they can say, "You see how Jews think. They believe might makes right. And since they have no morals why should we have any regarding them?" Your antagonistic and xenophobic statements can be used to justify even more aggresion on Israel.
It is better to say that Israel has a moral right to the land of Israel. For instance, the Arabs have a few dozen countries, the Chistians have many countries, but there is only one Jewish country. Just by fairness the Jews should have the right to at least one country. Then when you add in the fact that Jews have been persecuted all around the world and expelled and killed, there is even more of a moral justification as to why they deserve to have their own country. And then when you add in the fact that Israel was a Jewish country for 1,500 years before the Jews were brutally expelled by the Romans, and the fact that there have been Jews living there for thousands of years, and the fact that the Jews never gave up their claim on the land and kept this claim alive through daily religious prayers and ceremonies, there is a good case for keeping Israel a Jewish country.
