What we have in the Israeli army is the kindest and most merciful army in the world. Never before has a country had so many neighbors sit near its doors and wait for the right time to attack. Never before has a country which was attacked first had to give back land it conquered in those wars. Never before has a country had as much restraint as Israel has shown even under constant threats and decades of terror.
Never before has a country taken care of the people it hurt, the ones in error, to their hospitals and treated them. Never before has an army gone so out of its way to give notice and warning to the people and places it intends to attack. Never before has one country been vilified and attacked so much in a conflict in which it didn’t even start or provoke. Never before has an army agreed to such a one sided cease fire with an enemy in which it already had a cease fire and were the only ones to abide by the conditions of.
… and still, they apologize, the show signs of remorse, the band together, the show restraint and they give us all the strength and courage to continue on.
