Here’s my solution to the conflict in Gaza:

1) Ultimatum: Israel’s prime minister should announce that Israel is about to attack military targets near population centers, and those uninvolved in the conflict who wish to remain safe should leave immediately. They should consider heading to Sinai, which is not far from Gaza. This will be the limit of Israel’s humanitarian efforts. Hamas can prevent the attack by unconditionally surrendering.


2) Attack: The IDF should use maximum force with all the conventional means at its disposal as it attacks the entire “target bank” throughout the Gaza Strip. All the military and infrastructural targets would be attacked with no consideration for “human shields” or “environmental damage.” It suffices that we hit exact targets and that we give advance warning to the enemy.

3) Siege: It is time for a total military siege on Gaza. Nothing should enter the Gaza Strip. Israel, however, should allow exit from Gaza. As suggested earlier, civilians may go to Sinai while fighters may surrender to IDF forces.

4) Defense: Any place from where Israel or Israel’s forces were attacked should be immediately attacked in return – with full force.

5) Conquer: After the IDF completes the softening of the military targets with its firepower it should conquer the entire Gaza Strip. The only consideration regarding this action should be to use all necessary means to minimize the harm to Israeli soldiers.

6) Elimination: The Shin Bet and IDF should thoroughly eliminate all armed enemies from Gaza. The enemy population that is innocent of wrongdoing and separated itself from the terrorists should be treated in accordance with international law and be allowed to leave. Israel should generously aid those who wish to leave.

7) Sovereignty: Gaza is part of Israel, and should remain as such forever. Liberation of parts of our land for eternity must be the only justification for endangering Israeli soldiers in battle. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, that strip of land should become part of sovereign Israel to be populated by Jews. This action would also serve to ease Israel’s housing crisis. As quickly as possible, the coastal train line would be extended in order to reach the length of the Gaza Strip.

According to polls, most of the Arabs in Gaza wish to leave. Those not involved in anti-Israel activity would be offered a generous international emigration package. Those choosing to remain would receive permanent resident status. After living in Israel for a number of years and becoming accustomed to the country, and contingent on appropriate Knesset legislation and the approval of the interior minister, those who accept the legitimacy of Israel’s rule and recognize Israel as a sovereign Jewish state – with all of its Jewish characteristics – will be offered Israeli citizenship.

  1. All the Lands with the originals borders set by HaShem and promised to the descendants of Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’acov will be restored to Yisra’el !! And the descendants of rejected Ishmael will be sent away, once again!! Am Yisra’el Chai !!!!

  2. Ali your such an Idiot .Where is your archeology and proof that Israel and Jerusalem is yours ? All you have is arrogance and Hatred .Their is no such thing as your Mythological Palestinians .You’ve been brainwashed all your life into hating Jews .You need to study the Torah and Tanakh and Jewish history and after you’ve done that then you will see that you’ve been lied to all of your life .

  3. Well its plain and simple. Hamas attacked Israel with rockets trying to kill innocent men women and children. And now Israel is fighting back. Have you heard this old saying ….”Don’t pull a dogs tail or he will eat you alive” ?

  4. I don’t disagree, Linda. However, people who do not consider Hebrew Scripture sacred will totally dismiss; to wit, the previous dumdums. We run the risk of others insisting on whatever their scripture says, including Muslims. They do understand sheer force, and that will be what it takes whether it’s an Israeli army or Moshiakh when he comes. And indeed he might end up ruling “Canada, Iceland, Botswana”, as well as the rest of the planet (, !) Gentiles have never nor will they ever ‘get it.’

  5. See, Linda??! Listen Hilal the Qur’an is as screwed up as the Injil. There are Muslims across the entire damned world and in most places they live their lives without too much incident. Those incidents may often be derived from Christian evangelism. It’s as stupid as Muslim evangelism. I am a Jew and in America I see Muslims as no worse and sometimes better than Christians. Both are a pain in the ass for Jews. Many Muslims would like us dead as Christians once did. Christians now want to destroy us by deceiving us into worshiping Isa who even you folks call masikh.There is not one Jew, I truly believe, who is out to see your beautiful children hurt. But it is a political thing, not religious, and Hamas would use your children and see them killed for their version of extremism. What if you want to see everyday Palestinians leave to a place of safety? Will Hamas allow that? I don’t believe so. Children’s bodies are useful to them. Martyrs are useful to them. I am a Jew and be just as extreme as any other extremist, but if you have ever read anything I have written, I hold no more prejudice for Islam than I do for Christianity.Christians have attacked me, Muslims have not personally done so. The Israelis warn Palestinians before attacks, do they not? Israelis would let them go to a safer place because it does not want any such guilt. Hamas wants to generate guilt. You think the world hates Muslims?? You think it loves Jews??? That is hilarious. Even all these Christian nuts support Israel because they think it will help them capture us for their cult. Out of every country in the world that rejects Islam, Israel has given Muslims better treatment than most. Where I live a masjid would be burnt down; in fact one was. The same people have threatened to burn my home, and would burn a synagogue too. They have ruined my business and career–for “Jesus”. Stop killing Jews and see what happens. Denounce violence, recognize our right to exist and see what happens.

  6. IF GAZA REMAIN PART OF ISRAEL WEL BE THE END OF ISRAEL. WITH 1.8 MILION NAW AND 10 CHILDREN PER FAMILY ? IN 10 YEARS They WILL BE Majority and this is the end of Jewish STATE .GAZA WAS PART OF EGYPT (EGYPT Don’t want the Palestinian back, and Jordan don’t want them back.) In JORDAN 90% ARE PALESTINIAN
