Good versus Evil: Harper Gets It
Thomas Walkom gives us a revealing (yet ultimately wrong) insight into Stephen Harper's stance on Israel.
It would seem that Prime Minister Harper understands that there is 'Good' and there is 'Evil'.
This is an uncomfortable position for Mr Walkom. Whether it is emanates from a feeling of guilt that our Western Society is so much more affluent than the rest of the world, the belief that there are two sides to every argument, the repulsion of the presumed 'religious' association with the terms 'Good' and 'Evil', or an overwhelming disdain for all things Western (American), Walkom (as with Moonbats in general) is uncomfortable with a moral stance.
For the Moonbat terms like 'Good' and 'Evil' are relative. In other words, there is no such thing as 'Good' or 'Evil' because nobody can stand in judgment of another.
What is 'Evil'?
In Canadianna's excellent piece, 'Hezbollah Are People Too' the author states:
"...Evil is pure immorality (cruelty, violence, ruthless, savagery, depravity, absence of sympathy). It isn't by accident, or without forethought. Evil is repetitive, sustained immorality by choice..."
Not only is it possible to determine 'Good' and 'Evil': it is also critical. Without making this determination we are left in a moral quagmire. We are then forced to react in proportion to acts of terror. After all, in the Moonbat world of moral equivalence, we are only as good as the terrorists and any 'over-response' only legitimizes the initial act of terrorism.
This is why the Moonbats were so quick to rage about Israel's supposed lack of 'proportionality' in the recent Lebanese-Israeli conflict. They were unwilling to accept the obvious. They were unwilling to accept that Israel was at a war with an Evil terrorist organisation bent on the eradication of the Israeli state.
But there is positive news: we are the 'Good' guys.
No that doesn't mean we are perfect. However, what it does mean is that when we are confronted with Evil we should not worry about 'proportionality'. What we should worry about is using our full capability to eradicate those who would be so willing to eradicate us.
