Israeli Right

I'm not one to praise or denigrate Israel unnecessarily. And I usually just avoid referring to Israel here, since it's so loaded a topic. But this story really needs to be pointed out to as many people as possible.

Is there any other culture or country that would offer rescue assistance, in an area not directly under their control, to people that were trapped and endangered while trying to smuggle weapons that they would then use to destroy them? Can you imagine the U.S. attempting a rescue of attempted terrorists in a tunnel? No. It's only Israel that has such a regard for human life that they would rescue those trying to destroy them. Stupid? Perhaps. Admirable? Definitely.

Ya think the international press will pick this one up?
