Barry Shaw: Israel is Going to War. Which Side Are You On?

Baby twins were rescued by Israeli soldiers because their parents hid them in the closet, and they were found by the IDF forces 14 hours later.
Had they been discovered by Palestinian slaughterers they would have beheaded them, as they did to other Jewish babies.
Now, they have to grow up never knowing their mother or father, except, perhaps, knowing how they died.
I do not want to hear that Israel must act with restraint.
I don’t want to hear from pompous Europeans, who have never stood decisively with Israel, but who want to lecture us how to conduct warfare and will eagerly drag us to the ICC if we don’t follow their rules.
They will not be our referee.
I don’t want to hear from the Arab or Muslim world except to hear them condemn Palestinian anti-Semitism that leads to the slaughter of Jews.
Without that, we can live without your “normalization” agreements, because that would not be normal.
As for others, know this.
Israel is about to embark on a war in which we intend to eliminate Hamas.
We are ready to fight and die to eradicate the evil curse that is Hamas.
You are either with us, or against us.
If, perchance, Hamas is joined by Hezbollah we will double our resources to confront them as well.
Lebanon! You have been warned.
Syria! You have been warned.
Understand this! We are not the Jews of Kishinev. We are not the Jews of the Farhud.
We have learned the lessons of European and Arab- Muslim Jew hatred.
We are the next generation of the Holocaust, and we pledged, at Auschwitz – Never Again!
That Never Again happened the week after Yom Kippur, in a harrowing pogrom on the soil of our beloved land, which is now drenched in Jewish blood.
This was an unforgivable sin which must be avenged.
There is going to be a war between good and evil.
This time the Jew does not have quivering knees.
Think of the Israeli babies who were rescued again and ask yourself, in your heart, which side are you on?
