Political cartoon was offensive

By From page A8 | August 01, 2014

I found the cartoon published in Tuesday’s Enterprise highly offensive. It showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an Uncle Sam-type poster saying that he wants YOU for a war on Gaza!

To say that any country’s leader wants war is the height of stupidity. No one wants war, killing and death. Netanyahu is trying to prevent Hamas’ ability to infiltrate Israel through their tunnels and to prevent their short-range, and now longer-range, missiles from bombarding Israeli civilians, as thousands have for years upon years.

There is no evidence that he has a dedication to war.
