Lest there be any doubt that Chuck DeVore, a CMC alum running for U.S. Senate, is a friend of Israel, his office has released a statement about how he stands with them as they stop Hamas. I love DeVore's comparison with Israel and the territories and Mexico and the United States. He's right. If we were attacked by Mexico with rocket fire, we'd retaliate.
In fact, when Pancho Villa did a cross border raid at Columbus, New Mexico, President Woodrow Wilson retalliated by sending a 10,000 man force under the command of General Pershing into Mexico for nearly a year! I suppose by the U.N. and the left's definition of proportionate attacks, we would have been condemned for defending our territory and our citizenry.
