Basic terrorist doctrine states that merely surviving a conflict is a victory.
Sort of like cockroaches surviving a nuclear event.
But in a very real sense, this terrorist doctrine is correct.
When Israel fights Hamas in Gaza, she no longer tries to wipe out the terrorist infrastructure, she no longer tries to take real estate and hold it. Israel’s goal, which, sadly, has hardened into inflexible doctrine, is to “degrade terrorist capabilities.”
Does this mean destroying 10% of the Hamas rockets, or 50%? How about 90%? I have no idea. I’m not sure the Israeli government has a clear fix on their goals beyond restoring, ahem, quiet.
So: Israel wants to buy time in order to fight the PalNazis in a less explosive environment. In this way the economy can continue to roar ahead, and fewer people get dead.
But the PalNazis don’t care about their economy. They don’t care about civilian deaths. In fact, they encourage their people to die — for purposes of propaganda.The PalNazis don’t even care about founding a state. Their only goal is to destroy the Jewish state and establish a caliphate.
Thus, fighting a war with Israel and losing a tactical battle is, for the PalNazis, merely a learning experience.
Losing becomes a strategic victory.
Iran will now build guidance systems into the rockets they supply to the PalNazis, turning them into deadly missiles. The Iranian drone Hamas sent into Israel was just a warning, a cute way of letting the IDF know that Iran is seriously upgrading the PalNazi war making capabilities.
And then there is propaganda. The PalNazis have perfected the big lie, turning Israel into a pariah state in the collective imagination of much of the world.
The blogosphere is awash with gory pictures of dead children. The PalNazis and their enablers blame the Israelis. But in truth, all the photos are from Syria and Iraq, where Muslims happily slaughter other Muslims and, of course, Christians.
Take a look at this:
The Algemeiner Reorts:
As Hamas supporters are being called out on Twitter for posting photos of Syrian casualties from 2012 as victims of the Israeli Army in Gaza in 2014, Israel advocacy group StandWithUs on Tuesday posted a clip from Hollywood horror flick ‘The Final Destination 4′ that was used to create another fake that circulated widely on Facebook falsely depicting Israel killing civilians.
StandWithUs created a short clip of the scene from the movie to show how it was transposed into a screenshot used for Hamas propaganda.
Perhaps Israel is holding back in order to garner support for an eventual strike on the Iranian nuclear facilities. But if that is their strategy, I can guarantee it is a losing hand. America, under Obama, has already accepted a nuclear Iran. And the Europeans, besides being militarily useless, have reverted to their Jew-hating origins.
