A Viscious Cycle
Good morning! I trust everyone had a nice and, hopefully, relaxing holiday? (Other than me.) Good. Now, let's get down to business. By now, we have all seen the countless stories on the news about the poor Palestinians and Israel's aggression against them. Waah. Has anyone seen a story about why Israel went into Gaza? Hmmm? It's not on the MSM. I found a small tidbit here and there in a few odd papers. One was even from a commentary in a UK paper. I'd give you links, but my hubby reformatted everything and I lost them. It's not important though. The reason should be obvious to you if you've been following the history between Hamas and Israel. I'll even give you a brief overview.
Israel left Gaza a few years ago (has it been that long already?) in order to prove to the world that they're not barbarians and the Palestinians are welcome to have their own "homeland". The point was to see if the PLO could actually restore order and run a country. Right. Hamas won the governmental election among the Palestinian people and, at the same time, refused to work with Israel on anything. They've kidnapped soldiers, tortured and killed them. Hamas also continually fires rockets into Israel, killing civilians AND brainwashes their children in school to be suicide bombers. Yeah, we love Hamas. They're doing such a great job. Meanwhile, "their people" are starving and jobless. Of course they blame this on Israel. What a bunch of crap!
I completely understand why Israel is tired of being pushed around. Keep attacking Israel, and they'll retaliate (and vice versa). The PLO and Hezballah see what Hamas has done and have no desire for self-destruction. They're sitting on the sidelines rooting for Israel! Hilarious! Israel has officially stated, "This is a war to the end." Good!
I say, "Go Israel go!"
