One of the pillar concepts of Budo is that to defend what is the rights of an individuals from being unjustly taken by anyone. A student of Budo would not attack for the sake of attacking. To that, we learnt in aikido that we do not attack at any given time. We are not allowed to provoke or fight. We should only use the art to defend. To defend the rights of ourselves, to defend the rights of others in the face of injustices.
In the traditional concept of war, there is no honor if one party is taken ambushed unaware. Both parties must be ready to fight on the same level ground in a neutral place and only the warriors would be involved in the war, and no one else. That’s also the concept of honor as propagated not only through Budo, but also simple common sense.
Hitler once said, ” I killed all the Jews in this world but left some so that you can understand why I killed them“. I used to think that quote another as one of his macabre sense of humor.
But yesterday, the Israelites who did what they did to the Flotilla, somehow proved that there in a point in the quote after all. They have no honor nor integrity. They have no shame. They terrorized and get away with it.
*Time to boycott Zionist goods conscientiously yet again. I had not been too disciplined with it, but after yesterday, I don’t think I need any more reminders.
