Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Israel’s military chief on Sunday after the general drew fire for saying he would not want soldiers confronting a wave of Palestinian stabbings to “empty a magazine” into a girl wielding scissors.

One member of Netanyahu’s right-wing cabinet said Lieutenant-General Gadi Eisenkot’s remarks last week could be misinterpreted by Israel’s international critics as confirming allegations, which it denies, that disproportionate force has been used against assailants, many of them youths.

    Disproportionate force? Tell that to the Christians who’s heads are being cut off. Ask them if their is such a thing as disproportional force. Political correctness is designed to force upon the military a state of mind which causes them to hesitate before taking action. That is all a terrorist needs is political indecisiveness, a state of mind which causes security to under reacted rather than over reacte. All infractions must be met with tribulation force. Those will include extreme reactions to those who intend to eradicate Israel as the end times are upon us. Those who oppose Israel’s existence are becoming desperate, time is running out, they desperately need to kill as many Israelis by whatever means they can. The Palestinians will send waves of young girls in to be shot if they feel it will stoke an in incendiary international opinion against Israel. Flood face book and the Internet with heads that have been cut of by Islamic extremists. If an Israeli general says anything it will be taken out of context. Remember the end game is to kill all the Jews. A Hitler styled milinnial multinational force is coming against Israel and it will not be long before Israelis will be shooting anything that moves if they have a weapon or are screaming allaaaah Akbar. I will reiterate the destruction of Israel is not optional it is mandatory and the only thing between your family’s and Islamic lunacy are your.weapons
