Belligerent Israel and Belligerent Hamas on a 12 hour break but the legitimate demands of the Palestinians needs to be addressed - The tunnels are a side show which Israel will exploit to keep the game going

  1. Belligerent Hamas is an improvement.

    How would you like a homicide tunnel dug under your digs in Philly?

    Every missile shot at Israel is an act of war.

    Really, this shooting off missiles into Israel every few months must stop.

    Much of this stuff comes from Iran.

    And Iran calls a lot of the shots in Gaza.

  2. Hamas's Useful Idiots

    By Rich Lowry - July 26, 2014

    Sound bites are usually meant to obfuscate as much as clarify. Rarely is one so incisive as the line uttered by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu the other day about the difference between Israel and Hamas: “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

    This is the ground truth of the latest Gaza War that gets obscured by the relentlessly repeated stark disparity in casualties between the Gazans, hundreds of whom have died in the conflict, and the Israelis.

    Each civilian death in Gaza is a tragedy, but who is ultimately responsible? The moral calculus here is simple. Hamas precipitated the war and persisted in waging it even when Israel was willing to accept an Egyptian offer of a cease-fire. Hamas hides its rockets in schools and places its command bunkers under hospitals. It wants war, and it wants civilian casualties.

    Joseph Stalin infamously said that one death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic. Hamas is happy with either a tragedy (the four kids killed on the beach by Israeli shells last week) or a statistic (the climbing civilian toll), so long as it is death and so long as it can be used in the propaganda war against Israel.

    This isn’t hard to understand. Yet even supporters of Israel give in to the twisted logic that the Gaza conflict is somehow an indictment of the Jewish state. Former secretary of state Madeleine Albright said on CNN “that this is hurting Israel’s moral authority.” Which is exactly the conclusion Hamas wants “the international community” to draw from its depraved indifference to the safety of Gazans.

    Jon Stewart did a controversial bit last week about how Israel has all the advantages in the conflict, what with its warnings via app to its civilians about incoming rockets and its ability to neutralize those rockets with its missile defenses.

    Yes, how unfair. Israel invested in systems entirely devoted to protecting its civilian population from unprovoked attack. What dastardliness is the Zionist entity capable of next?

    Of course there is an asymmetry between Hamas and Israel. There will always be a technological gap between a ramshackle terror force with medieval religious views and a dynamic, liberal society. On September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda had box cutters. We had B-52s. Did that make us the unsympathetic Goliath to al-Qaeda’s David?

    1. Israel might well undertake an indiscriminate, scorched-earth campaign in Gaza — if it were run by, say, the Assad regime in Syria, with its taste for chemical weapons and barrel bombs. Jeffrey Goldberg pointed out in The Atlantic that 700 people were killed in Syria last weekend alone, outpacing the total death toll in Gaza so far, but the deaths received almost no media coverage.

      Whatever their failings, the American news media are paragons of balance and context compared with their international counterparts. Still, Italian-Palestinian Rula Jebreal complained on MSNBC that the media, including MSNBC itself, are “disgustingly biased” in favor of Israel. Chris Hayes had her on his MSNBC show and explained the difficulty in giving representatives of Israel and Hamas equal time. It turns out that it’s hard to book spokesmen from the terror group.

      None of this is to deny the very real suffering of Gazans. No rational person interested in their welfare would govern the way Hamas does. Its technical proficiency is smuggling. Its infrastructure program consists of building tunnels for acts of murder and kidnapping. Its civil-defense system is to admonish endangered civilians not to heed Israeli warnings to flee buildings about to be hit. Its peace plan is annihilation of the Jewish state.

      It can’t achieve that by force of arms. Its objective is, with support from fellow travelers and useful idiots the world over, to make Israel the new South Africa, toward the goal of its ultimate destruction. If it takes countless dead Palestinians to do it, so be it.

    2. So tell us, Robert Peterson, are you willfully ignorant or are you losing your mental capacity?

      Do you not remember things or just maintaining a "Selective Memory"?

      You used to proclaim the quality of Judaic literature..

      I see make no comments about the content of the Talmud, why is that?

      Willful ignorance or a lack of comprehension of the written word?

      Dear Rodent -

      The Talmud is something like 6 or 7,000 pages long. I don't have a copy by my bed. Do you?

      When I speak of Jewish literature I mean the Jewish Bible along with some commentary from sources I like.

      IS is at it again.

      Saw a story on one of the news stations yesterday. IS has dictated that the heads of all female mannequins in department stores now be fitted with head scarves and veils, one assumes so that their macho warriors won't be tempted to try to hump them.

      If head scarves and veils will stop this behavior, I'm all for it.

    The Obama administration has sent a team of military and national security officials to the Texas-Mexico border to assess whether there is a need for National Guard troops to help deal with the influx of unaccompanied foreign children, senior White House officials said.

    A team of experts from the Defense Department and the Department of Homeland Security will conduct their study in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to determine whether the military can "temporarily assist" U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the officials said.

  6. The tunnels are the cause of the ground operation. Netanyahu did not dig the tunnels.

    The years' long bombardment of Israel by Hamas was the cause of the Israeli air campaign.

    Mortars Fired from Gaza as Israel Extends Humanitarian Ceasefire

    “According to Channel 2, the IDF says it might not be an intentional violation of the truce, but a lone terror cell acting without orders from Hamas’s central command.”

    For the record, Palestinians fired first.

    1. It is over.

      Israel needs to start looking for a new leader, one who recognizes that no state can long exist which will not defend its citizens and territorial integrity.

      Netanyahu must go. With any luck, he may share a cell with the criminal Olmert.

  10. Hamas should be disarmed and beaten to within an inch of its life but not allowed to die.

    Dead, Fatah takes over. That means both the west bank and Gaza under one control. Then the pressure for a two state 'solution' grows.

    But there is no solution, short of an all out mid east war in which no one any longer cares if the arabs of Palestine exist, or not.

    Hamas has rejected a continuation of the phony ceasefire and has been firing into Israel for the past few hours. From appearances, Netanyahu is going to sign off on a “permanent” phony ceasefire and let Hamas off the hook. From his behavior I gather that he has been able to bribe a few religious fanatics in the government to stick with him, preventing a vote of "no confidence". The criminal Olmert was able to do this several times as prime minister. May Netanyahu suffer the same fate as Olmert, the criminal.

    I really want to be pleasantly surprised by the Israeli cabinet and Knesset working hastily to summarily removal of Netanyahu, but I think not. Netanyahu is far too cagey a rat to betray his country unless he is absolutely sure of having the votes to survive. That said, he has made implacable enemies who will pounce at any opportunity to bring him down. Think of Benedict Arnold being retained by Washington following his treason, if you want the feeling now coming to a rapid boil in Israel.

    Were I Netanyahu, I would be changing my security detail regularly and staying in my safe room as much as possible. Like Qaddafi, he may have to change sleeping quarters nightly.
