Regarding Gaza and Hamas
The world is up in roar. Israel is attacking Hamas and inflicting serious structural damage to its operations. The Islamic influence on world opinion is huge. It is not a problem of truth. It is a problem of numbers. Muslims are many all over the world and they sympathize with the Muslims of Gaza. Hamas has been sending rockets towards Israel for years. Some whispers from Israel were heard. Obama himself was sometime concerned about Hamas action. Sometimes, even, he was double concerned, or even triple concerned. No serious action against Hamas was taken. When Israel had had enough and felt they had to take down Hamas’s infrastructure, the world was roaring against Israel. Islamic influence on the world stage is too strong. Hamas needs to be taken care of by Israel. In fact, the founding charter of Hamas has a basic tenet of annihilating the state of Israel. They make no apology about it.(1)
Gaza will remain a problem for Israel unless a permanent solution is enforced by Israel. Here we have an entity that wants to finish off Israel. It is apparently a major threat to the livelihood of Israeli citizens. Working at a solution with Hamas did not work despite serious concessions by Israel time and again.
A Jordanian past action is a good guide for Israel
In 1970 the Palestinian Militias in Jordan wanted to take over Jordan and make it a Palestinian state. The late king Hussein of Jordan had a kind heart and did not desire a civil war to preserve his rule. However he was the official authority in Jordan and a fine Majali officer stepped up to the scene and asked him to declare martial law and let the Jordanian army take care of business. It took about three months of street wars. In the end, the Jordanian military managed to get rid of all street militias and thugs who thought they can rule a sovereign country.
Gaza, in a sense, is no different. I am off the opinion that Israel should take over all of Gaza and declare it part of Israel. It is obvious Hamas is not a respectful entity for a sovereign state. You cannot negotiate with a thug who only understands the language of force. Muslims are like that. If you do not break his skull, he won’t get the message. It is true that if Israel takes over the whole of Gaza, it will take a few months to send to Allah’s brothel the Muslim militants. It is also true the world will go up in roar again about how evil Israel is. But so what? The security of the state and its civilian population is more important that all of the “hoo bla” by the international community.
The quicker Israel does that the better. Once the situation is stable, there will be no more rockets coming to Israelis from Gaza. Civil liberty for all Gaza honest citizens will be guaranteed. With time, life in Gaza will prosper and people will be mostly motivated to improve their lives instead of thinking that the Jews are a people marked for elimination.
