Removing the Evil from Our Midst

Israel ought to take advantage of this new world order and clean house in Gaza.

So as I said, I am sick and tired of these “Baalei Chesed”. I fully support Israel’s choice to attack Hamas even if it means going into Gaza on the ground if necessary. If there are Arab civilian casualties – it is on Hamas. Not Israel. It would behoove people like Egypt’s Morsi to recognize that instead of saying he saw a child victim of an Israeli attack and was sickened by it.

Speaking of Morsi, the new reality on the Middle East complicates matters significantly. The spirit of the so called “Arab Spring” definitely leans toward a more Islamist perspective.

In the past, with the exception of America, the world did in fact buy into the Palestinian narrative that Israel’s incursions into Gaza were filled with atrocities. But that is no longer the case. At least not yet.

The Obama administration is supportive of Israel’s actions now. It almost seems like the President is more supportive of Israel’s right to defend itself in this way than were previous administrations. In light of the newer reality on the ground in that part of the world, that takes some guts. And all due credit must be given to the President who as recently as this morning said that Israel has a right to defend itself against those constant rocket attacks and he therefore supports Israel’s incursion into Gaza.

What is more surprising is that even Europe has come out in support of Israel!

Could this be the beginning of a brand new day in the world? Does the world finally get it? I don’t know. But I welcome the support now… even if it disappears later. I’ll take what I can get.

Why does Europe now support Israel? Perhaps it is because Iran being the suppliers to Hamas with rockets, many of which have far greater range than in the past. They can now reach places like Tel Aviv and even Jerusalem. Maybe that has something to do with this new support. Hamas is clearly Iran’s surrogate in the region. They have pledged to wipe Israel off the map. That falls neatly into Hamas’s wheelhouse.

Israel ought to take advantage of this new world order and clean house in Gaza. Even if and when the new world order tide turns against them. Hamas has to be destroyed in every possible way. From the leadership down to their lowliest soldier. While civilian casualties should always be minimized it should not alter Israel’s resolve to clean their clocks… and do the entire world a favor by eliminating at least one terrorist group from the map. They can cry bloody murder all they want. Every single Arab child that dies because of it is their own fault.

And I hope that Iran takes note of this. They ought to believe they are next!

It is my fervent prayer that this conflict comes to a positive conclusion very quickly with no casualties or permanent injuries to our valiant soldiers. May God protect them.

    Dear Harry Maryles, may your search for spiritual truth bring you righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. And to all those who seek spiritual truth and love of neighbours, may God who is Love Himself, neutralize the forces of darkness around them and make light their burden. Amen.

    If Israel does not remove the muslim Scourge, in their Midst, the Jews will NEVER have Peace. EVER.

  4. Khanny Ali says:

    This guy is twisted with the media Role-play of the West!!

    Man TV does brainwash you stupid people Palestine is the victim NOT the terrorist!!!!

  5. Khanny Ali says:

    The middle East 100 years ago was the most PEACEFUL place in the world…

    Until the West (Wild West as they called themselves) decided to interfere in the Arab lands….

    Look at how America are causing Chaos throughout the world

    Wake up your speculation of the world/Gaza are WRONG!!!

  6. Josh Jaye says:

    I don't watch TV. There is no such place as "Palestine". Just arabs who named themselves "palestinians". You occupy Israel's Land. If not for Israel, you arabs would have starved to death, long ago. Westerners consider you the WELFARE-arabs of the Middle-East. NOBODY wants you in their country. Trouble-Makers and terrorists. Plus they would have to financially support you. Who can afford it? Stop inbreeding with your relatives and maybe you will not be so Ignorant. No, what I say about Gaza is right! Israel built Gaza and GAVE it to you. You have turned it into a Ghetto. Arabs started this War. I hope Israel finishes the job. As for Barack Obama, YOU can have him. We don't want him.

  8. Aishah Bz says:

    If that's what u feel y did u enter the land of Muslims Israel was non existence until u decided to over take and kill the love spreading Muslims if they were the problem how did u manage to occupy nearly 80% of Palestine because u are the terrorist u don't want peace u want mOney and greed like you did at the time of the prophecy and by killing our children u won't be able to wipe us out as the world is full of Palestinians each one of us

  9. Aishah Bz says:

    Josh jaye does not watch tv we are not Arabs but we stand with them don't be daft Israel a Zionist country in between all Muslim countries don't think so maybe u should have took Uganda u would have been fully destroyed by now it's the kindness of muslim u have been able to go as far as you have today and u don't need Obama if it's not for him u have no weapons u are dead without him u fool Israel is nothing without USA nothing at all

  10. Faisal Khan says:

    what's ment to b is ment to b no1 cant stop tht from happenin..

  11. Josh Jaye says:

    "Kindness of muslims"?? "Muslims spreading love"??? Where do you get your information? Everywhere muslims go, they kill and destroy. Even in America, muslim men BEHEAD their own wives and daughters, under the pretense of 'Honor-Killing'. What is honorable about killing your own family? Hacking them to death? That is the Insane Sharia Law. I'm surprised that women support Sharia Law. Muslim men consider their women "property" and do not respect women at all. A married muslim man rapes a relative, and the whole family accuses her of Adultery, and STONES THE VICTIM TO DEATH. Have you ever seen a man beheaded? Or his fingers sliced off by a sword? I have. That is how muslims "spread love around". No respect for human life….not even their own. Go ahead and 'stand with the muslims'. It will be the biggest mistake you will ever make. When the time comes, please remember the words that I have told you… By the way, thousands of years ago, it was foretold that Israel would be surrounded by her enemies. Is it not true? When it was foretold, Israel was not a State….so the prophecy has come true.

Israeli’s are a religious people; even secular Jews believe that God is active in this world.

If Hamas would simply stop firing rockets into Israel, all the carnage would stop instantly.

Inevitably when tragedies like this happen there is a sudden burst of Achdus. Tragedies unite.

Looking for a spiritual cause of a tragedy is a time honored tradition in Judaism.
