The enemies of the Jewish people have for centuries claimed that we just love to kill children and innocents.
This is the basis of the deicide claim concerning Jesus Christ – being the ultimate innocent, of course – and the claims concerning Jewish lusting after non-Jewish baby blood throughout the Middle Ages.

The Day of the Dhimmi is Done and Jewish people are no longer going to be anyone’s punching bag… not even that of our traditional Arab-Muslim masters.

I suppose the main thing that we can do, other than those of us who are young enough to enlist, is simply advocate for the elimination of Hamas. So long as the people of S’derot and Ashkelon, and smaller communities like Nir Am, are under siege, so all Jews are under siege.
