Rule No. 1:
In the Middle East, it’s always the Arabs that attack first and Israel that defends itself. That’s called retaliation.
Rule No. 2:
Arabs, whether Palestinian or Lebanese, have absolutely no right to kill Israeli civilians. That’s called terrorism.
Rule No. 3:
Israel has every right to kill as many Arab civilians as it wants. That’s called legitimate self-defense.
Rule No. 4:
When Israel kills too many civilians, the Western powers didn’t urge for restraint. That’s called the reaction of the international community.
Rule No. 5:
Palestinians and Lebanese have no right to capture Israeli soldiers, even if their numbers are limited to three.
Rule No. 6:
Israelis have the right to capture as many Palestinians as they wish — over 10,000 prisoners as of today, of which 300 are children. Uttering the magic word, “terrorist,” is all that’s needed to throw Arabs behind bars without charges.
