Now the pot has finally boiled over, ruptured, and this will continue as Gaza fractures into even smaller cantons with clans vying for their slice of the pie and crime families battling for their share of the drug and smuggling operations. And don’t forget the UN and its endless corruption – the heart and soul of the welfare state the world has so carefully structured.
This rupture will, I guarantee, spill over into Judea and Samaria. There are too many state and non-state actors in the volatile mix, each with their own strategic goals.
Iran has been financing Hamas in Gaza. Most of the Hamas leadership has gone to the mattresses in Tehran, terrified of being kidnapped, tortured horribly and then maybe put out of their misery by the “moderate” Fatah – or assassinated by an Israeli drone.
Make no mistake about it – Gaza is now a proxy Iranian state. The Shia Persians want to be big players in the region, push out the hated Sunni/Wahhabi Saudis and humble the big boys on the block, the Egyptians.
Iranian agents are now making their way, thanks to Nancy Pelosi’s buddy Puppy Assad, into Judea and Samaria. The Persians are setting up shop with lots of cash (much of it counterfeit American dollars) and making it known that they are ready to do business and push the Zionist dogs into the sea.
Besides, people conveniently forget that it was not just Gaza that elected Hamas, but also Judea and Samaria. And so while Judea and Samaria might be a bit more “moderate” than Gaza, it’s really silly measuring one Jew-hater against another.
At this stage, it’s no longer a regional conflict, an Arab-Israeli war; it’s a worldwide conflagration pitting Western values against Islamic jihadists who wish to impose a 7th century caliphate everywhere.
As a Marine wisely said to me: “In the future there’s gonna be only two types of folks: them that recognize the jihadists – and them that are dead.”
Here’s the equation Israelis and Americans have to keep in mind:
Fatah is Hamas.
Hamas is Fatah.
It’s that simple, that complex.
And policy should be based on that satanic equation.
