Sir Winston’s point of view

Sometime contributor to Barry Rubin is a fan of Winston Churchill, as am I. He sent us the following quotation which — I hope — sums up the Israeli attitude to this war:

Winston Churchill to the Canadian parliament, December, 30, 1941:

We did not make this war, we did not seek it. We did all we could to avoid it. We did too much to avoid it. We went so far at times in trying to avoid it as to be almost destroyed by it when it broke upon us. But that dangerous corner has been turned, and with every month and every year that passes we shall confront the evil-doers with weapons as plentiful, as sharp, and as destructive as those with which they have sought to establish their hateful domination….We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy.”

Winston S. Churchill
