|Gaza – What Would You Do? |
November 16, 2012 – New York – The AJC weekly radio messages are broadcast on the CBS radio network, before The Osgood File. All AJC radio commentaries since 2001 are available at www.ajc.org/radiocommentary.
The full text of this week’s commentary follows:
What would you do if your
city, your community, your home were attacked by deadly missiles?
What would you do if you had
15 seconds to find shelter for you and your family before the missiles
And what would you expect
your government to do to protect you?
You’d be outraged, wouldn’t
you? And you’d expect the government to go after the killers
That’s what the people of
Israel today face.
Hundreds of missiles from Hamas-ruled
Gaza have rained down on Israel’s south.
Because Hamas and its allies
want to kill as many Israelis, as many
Jews, as possible.
But Israel will not let them
succeed. It will do what it must to protect its citizens.
And Israel has received
support from the U.S., Canada and Britain. Too many other countries, though,
shamefully, remain silent, or can’t distinguish between the aggressor, Hamas,
and the victim, Israel.
AJC calls on all countries
and people of good will to speak out. Justice demands no less.
