But Arab television does the job for the Jewish State quite nicely. They produce and broadcast—round the clock—the most ghoulish, blood-thirsty, genocidal films since the Third Reich. In fact, the propaganda films of the Third Reich are positively subtle compared to the filth churned out by the Arab Muslim world.
These Jew-hating spots should convince most any fair-minded person—excluding the Hamas boosting dinosaur media—that Israel must fight and destroy her enemies. The charge of disproportionate response is just plain silly for there is no such thing as a disproportionate response in the face of relentless and solemn Muslim tribal calls for genocide.
Israel’s current offensive against Gaza, Operation Cast Lead, has been a long time coming. Hamas, a proxy for Iran, has poured more than 6,000 missiles into Israel since 2005 when Israel expelled every Jew from Gaza—the Israeli government acting as a modern Judenrat—and created a de facto Palestinian state. Terrorist rhetoric has been full-throated and triumphal. Hamas have boasted that The Zionist Entity—they refuse to acknowledge Israel—has no way of dealing with their rocket attacks. But now that Israel has struck back, the bombastic rhetoric has abruptly ceased. Hamas gnashes its teeth and cries that they are helpless victims.
Odd how the terrorists shed one identity for another so rapidly. Reminds me of the school yard bullies who used to torment the small and weak kids in my grade school—until the weaker kid struck back in self-defense.
I have no idea how Operation Cast Lead will turn out. Israel says that its strategic goal is to halt the rain of rockets on Israel, not to topple Hamas.
But Hamas was formed for one purpose: to destroy Israel and to murder every Jew on the planet. This genocidal goal is neatly and proudly laid out in the Hamas Covenant.
And so the truth is that until Hamas is destroyed Israel will suffer unrelenting terror.
America utterly destroyed Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan during World War II. If Israel wants peace from Gaza, and from her hostile Arab neighbors, she must demonstrate the consequences of making war against the Jewish state.
And the consequences must be the destruction of Hamas and their unconditional surrender. Defeat must be accompanied by humiliation for in the Arab Muslim world—a culture defined by honor and shame—abject humiliation is the surest long term remedy.
If an international cease-fire is imposed, then Israel loses, because like cockroaches, terror organizations need only survive a conflagration to declare victory.
Seraphic Secret’s buddy, Jameel at The Muqata continues to live-blog the war. Superb work.
My mate, (I speak the lingo) Aussie Dave, at Israellycool, between swigs of beer—he is an Aussie!—is also doing a great job of live-blogging the war.
Update:This is unconfirmed but Joshua Pundit reports that IDF troops have just entered Gaza. May Hashem protect and guide them to victory.
IAF footage of air strikes on Hamas tunnels, used to smuggle arms from Egypt into Gaza—with the aid of The Muslim Brotherhood—strikes on missile depots disguised as greenhouses, and a strike on the expensive high-rise headquarters of Hamas.
