I am lacking sleep so hopefully I am making some sense. This is my understanding and the way I perceive what the Bible is saying and how people should respond.
These are not the actions of Jews, nor the actions of any one who truely worships the creator God of the Israelites. Those actions are the work of a blinded, foolish politics , one which values appearance of strength, while ignoring or delaying dealing with its own internal issues. The voice of Israeli politics is the voice of hell, and it speaks with cannon fire, and the tramp of boot soles on parade grounds , a sound which one would assume any Jew would associate with the work of evil, but has by way of money, greed and decades of programming become the sound of what many have been duped into believing is the sound of salvation.
Its very simple. Only peaceful actions are Godly, only caring actions holy, only loving actions worthy in the sight of God. All but these things are sin, and any who step from that path are on the road to burning damnation.
38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.
This time the impact of the destruction sank in immediately. Perhaps because the 300 people who resided in al-Arakib, including their children, were sitting in the rubble when I arrived, and their anguish was evident; or perhaps because the village is located only 10 minutes from my home in Be'er Sheva and I drive past it every time I go to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem; or perhaps because the Bedouins are Israeli citizens, and I suddenly understood how far the state is ready to go to accomplish its objective of Judaising the Negev region; what I witnessed was, after all, an act of ethnic cleansing.
I am perplexed that Netanyahu appears to be behind this atrocity as I thought Israel had a good relationship with the Bedouins.
1CO 1:26 Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him.
Moments before the destruction of the Bedouin village of al-Arakib, Israeli high school age police volunteers lounge on furniture taken from a family's home.uruknet.com...
The spectacle of Israeli youth helping destroy al-Arakib helps explain why 56% of Jewish Israeli high school students do not believe Arabs should be allowed to serve in the Knesset – why the next generation wants apartheid. Indeed, the widespread indoctrination of Israeli youth by the military apparatus is a central factor in Israel’s authoritarian trend. It would be difficult for any adolescent boy to escape from an experience like al-Arakib, where adults in heroic warrior garb encourage him to participate in and gloat over acts of massive destruction, with any semblance of democratic values.

And they expect us to continue to weep for them over the "holocaust"?
The reason that they were persecuted and expelled from every country where they ever settled is becoming very obvious.
You showed the clip from the West Point speech in December 2009, when he made the decision to escalate the war in Afghanistan and to make it Obama’s war. I think that was a tragic error. The Afghanistan decision was his opportunity to begin to chart a new course on national security policy, to begin to break away from this pattern of behavior that we’ve adhered to for the past sixty or so years. And he blew it. I can’t pretend to look into his heart and understand what factors caused him to make the decision he did. I suspect that a political calculation may have weighed more heavily than a strategic calculation or a moral calculation. And I find that deeply upsetting, because I, and I think many of us, felt that here, finally, was a public figure who—whose decisions would not be influenced primarily by political calculations.
