Is the world pro-terrorist; pro-Hamas?

I have been quickly some headlines from around the globe and I have noticed that there is considerable outrage over Israel defending itself from Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. The following headlines are leading me to believe that the world, or perhaps just main stream media outlets, are pro-terror:

Pro-Palestinian protesters march on CNN headquarters
France condemns Israel land offensive in Gaza
Syria sends aid to Gaza
European protesters urge end to attacks on Gaza

and this small quotation from Mona Charen of National Review Online
Just for a lark, I decided to google “international condemnations of Hamas” this morning. You can guess what came up, right? Naturally, searching for condemnations of Hamas, one finds only international condemnations of Israel. An Australian report noted that the “British Foreign Secretary David Miliband is calling for an urgent ceasefire, while Russia’s Foreign Minister says he’s told his Israeli counterpart to urgently halt the military action.” The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, “strongly condemned Israel’s disproportionate use of force,” as did Brazil. Indonesia called on all countries to “sever all forms of diplomatic and business ties with Israel.” French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently holds the rotating chair of the European Union, did call upon Hamas to halt its rocket attacks but also censured Israel’s “disproportionate response.”

It seems that the world at large is very quick to condemn the Israeli's for defending themselves against the terrorist organization Hamas, yet these same people are not so quick to come to the defense of Israel when Hamas is murdering the innocent in Israel. It is my belief that Israel is within its rights to continue its offensive against Hamas. People blame Israel for the death of civilians in the Gaza Strip, but I blame Hamas.

If tomorrow Israel stopped defending themselves, and attempted to have a truce with Hamas, no sooner the truce was signed Hamas would launch attacks in Israel. We know this is true because it has already been done. Terrorists have no business running the show, and the outcry of sympathy for this terrorist organization is disgusting.

As a general rule I do not like terrorists, I do not like people who support terrorists, and I really, really like people who send terrorists to their creator, and do so with big guns. That being said, Kudos to Israel for defending itself.

Now before someone calls me a racist, I do not hate Palestinians, as a matter of fact I have some acquaintances who are of Palestinian decent. I never wish any group of people or area of the world to be afflicted by war, but the people in the Gaza Strip must realize that Israel is not attacking the Palestinian people, Israel is attacking the terrorist group that murders innocent people without regard.

There are many reasons why I like Israel. It is largely a land that supports freedom. Israel supports democracy, freedom of religion, women's rights, a free press, and an open economy. On top of that they have some a good gun stance. They arm their teachers in an effort to protect the children in the schools, something I wish America would adopt. It is safe to say that Israel is one of the only Middle Eastern nations to support these things, and it is safe to say that Israel is the only Middle Eastern nation to protect the legal rights, safety and freedom of homosexuals. No, I am not homosexual, and from a religious stand point I do not agree with the homosexual lifestyle, but from a political and freedom standpoint I am in full support of the homosexual lifestyle. The way a nation treats "minorities" says something about that nation, and when a nation is willing to defend every peaceful person within its' borders, that nation is alright in my book.

Once again, Kudos to Israel for defending itself. As an American who supports the right to self defense, the right to be armed, and the belief in freedom, I say that Israel should continue to rain hell down upon the Hamas militants. When peace and freedom can not be won by diplomacy, it must be taken by force, violent and overwhelming force. This is the philosophy of the American Founding Fathers, this is the philosophy of the freedom and peace minded individual.
