It's a Crazy World We Live In

Read this post by Tammy Bruce on Europe's reaction to Israel defending itself against the latest unprovoked acts of war from Hamas and Hezbollah. And yes, you should read the whole thing.
French President Jacques Chirac questioned whether Israel was seeking Lebanon's destruction. "One may well ask if there isn't today a kind of wish to destroy Lebanon -- its infrastructure, its roads, its communications, its energy, its airport. And for what?

"I find honestly -- as all Europeans do -- that the current reactions are totally disproportionate," he said in a live television interview on France's national Bastille Day.
Being French, you kind of expect that. But-
Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano said Pope Benedict and his aides were very worried that the developments in the Middle East risked degenerating into "a conflict with international repercussions."

"In particular, the Holy See deplores right now the attack on Lebanon, a free and sovereign nation, and assures its closeness to these people who already have suffered so much to defend their independence," he told Vatican Radio.
I thought Pope Benedict had taken a strong stand against Islamic imperialism. He's made friendly overtures to the Jewish community. Apparently that friendliness only lasted until Israel showed strength in the face of adversity and the fact that Jews do not need the permission of the Vatican anymore to thrive. Are we now back to our regularly scheduled Vatican-inspired anti-semitism? I hope not.

On the other side we have some Muslim countries who are properly criticizing the terrorists of H & H.
Meanwhile, Lebanon sought support from fellow Arabs at an emergency session of foreign ministers in Cairo on Saturday. But sharp rifts erupted over as moderate Arab states denounced Hezbollah for starting the conflict.

Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal called the group's actions "unexpected, inappropriate and irresponsible," telling his counterparts: "These acts will pull the whole region back to years ago, and we cannot simply accept them."

Supporting his stance were representatives of Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Iraq, the Palestinian Authority, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, delegates said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the talks.
Even Russia's Putin, while offering weasel words, was less weaselly than the Europeans:
Putin said it was unacceptable to try to reach political goals through abductions and strikes against an independent state. "In this context we consider Israel's concerns to be justified," he said. At the same time, he said, "the use of force should be balanced."
What to make of this? I'm not sure, except that Europe is still in advanced appeasement mode, on their way to dhimmitude. The Muslim world, while still advancing the twisted cause of jihad, is as leery of the psychotic Iranian mullahs as the rest of us.
