Dumb Question: If We Just Have a Ceasefire and Then Return to “Status Quo,” Won’t the Gazan Arab Hamas Terrorists Just Build More Tunnels?
Latest update: July 31st, 2014
Maybe I’m crazy, but it seems to me that if there aren’t some very radical changes in Gaza, they will just resume their terrorist activities against us. We know that the United Nations and all sorts of “peacekeeping forces” never do anything that would endanger themselves, like stopping terrorists from building missiles, underground bunkers, networks of tunnels etc.
Most countries that contribute forces are more sympathetic to the Arab terrorist than to Israel.
People of my generation and older will never forget how the United Nations peacekeeping forces fled the minute Nasser said that he wanted to destroy Israel in 1967.
Why would Israel want a ceasefire. It would just signify our weakness that we blinked first. Kerry is even claiming that Bibi requested it.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyaminhas asked for fresh US help in trying to broker a ceasefire in Gaza, top US diplomat said Tuesday.
“Last night we talked, and the prime minister talked to me about an idea and a possibility of a ceasefire. He raised it with me, as he has consistently,” Kerry said.
Netanyahu had said he “would embrace a ceasefire that permits Israel to protect itself against the tunnels and obviously not be disadvantaged for the great sacrifice they have made thus far.” (Arutz 7)
Where’s the truth and where’s the logic? Why should we have to go thought this again and again? Each time we pay with more lives.
