Message From a “War Zone”‏

 

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

The good new is that the Israeli Government has announced that it will no longer keep the unilateral one-sided ceasefire.

The Israeli military said that since the cease-fire deal was to have gone into effect, Hamas had fired 123 rockets at Israel, one killing a civilian – the first Israeli fatality in the fighting. (Reuters)

That’s because the Hamas Gazan Arab terrorists haven’t taken a breath in their assault on Israel, launching missiles and mortars at our civilians. And another important reason is because there is no serious support for another useless ceasefire by the Israeli public.

The majority of the Israeli public is against a ceasefire with Hamas at this time, a poll conducted for Channel 2 News on Tuesday found. 53% of respondents said they opposed a ceasefire with Hamas, while 35% said they support it. 12% said they did not know or refused to answer. At the same time, a majority of respondents were pessimistic about Operation Protective Edge bringing an end to the rocket fire from Gaza. 92% said they believe that the operation will not end the rocket fire, and only 6% said that they believe that Hamas would stop the rocket fire after the operation. (Arutz 7)

The cycle of attacks, retaliation, ceasefire, improved terrorist weapons and then more attacks on Israeli civilians has been going on for more than a decade. The only change has been the expanded range of the Hamas Gazan Arab terrorist missile launchers. Today’s Arab weapons reach a once unthinkably large swath of Israel, including Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and beyond.

As my husband and I watched and listened carefully to the official announcements by Prime Minister Netanyahu, Minister of Defense Moshe (Bogie) Ya’alon and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz that we would respond with even more force I was hoping to hear that the name of this “military operation” from the easily mocked “Operation Protective Edge,” better suited for condoms, to something with more punch and determination, like “Finish Them Off.”

Even Israel’s strongly Left-slanted news couldn’t find supporters for the ceasefire. Only the very extreme Left, like the Meretz party believes that we can negotiate a peace. That’s the linchpin of their ideology. They refuse to recognize that the ultimate aim of not only Hamas but Fatah is Israel’s destruction. And you can’t negotiate peace with people who want you destroyed.

 

It’s heartening to see that there are people in this world who recognize that Israel isn’t at fault for the death of Gazan civilians. This cartoon says it all:

    You were not there and you don’t know about what is happening there. You are a muslim and it is natural that you take their side without questioning if it is all true what you see and hear on al jazeera…. Nobody except the Hamas want to kill children and innocent people. WAKE UP, please.

  2. Nathan Katz says:

    Tell me, Dheu, are you also concerned about the Israeli kids who were murdered in cold blood?

  3. David Cohen says:

    Dheu Dheu Jr., how would you know what the pilots said? We’re you there? Too many people t as me Palestinian propaganda as truth. They often lie about Israel and cover up their own misdeeds.

  4. They must eliminate Hamas this time. Not just wound them to recover and start terror all over again.

  5. Andrew Barer says:

    Iran needs to disappear then Israel will truly have peace!!.
