From Scott Ritter,
Israel claims the moral high ground in this current round of conflict, citing the July 12 attack by Hezbollah on an Israeli Army patrol that left eight IDF soldiers dead and two captured. The disproportionality of response aside (Hezbollah fires hundreds of rockets into Israel, and gets thousands of artillery shells and aerial bombs in return; Israel's civilian casualties run in the scores, Lebanon's in the hundreds), Israel's claim as the aggrieved party simply does not withstand the test of history and fact. end quote.
People in general know reciprocity when they see it.
There is a biblical belief that those who bless Israel will be blessed & those who curse Israel will be cursed.
I don't subscribe to it.
And no, I don't think an earthly Israel is holy. Period.
