Israel has been very patient. For too long of time she has been forced to endure repeated rocket attacks from Hamas controlled Gaza. No sovereign country should be forced to endure hourly, daily, weekly and monthly rocket attacks. No people should be forced to scramble to bomb shelters at a moment’s notice.
It appears Israel has had enough of the hate-mongering bomb attacks by Hamas terrorists. She has struck back with pinpoint air attacks and is currently mobilizing reservist soldiers.
Israel needs to complete its military defense by forging a significant offensive. She needs to invade Gaza. Israel needs to annex Gaza as a territory and control it so that Gaza can no longer be an adjacent terrorist bully to the peace and security of the State of Israel.
One of the most serious botched diplomatic endeavors of the United States took place under the presidency of George Bush. Then, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, should have refrained from her hell-bent push for “free” elections for Gaza. There are no “free elections” where hate-mongering Arabs and Palestinians reside. Rice would have done well to resign before perpetrating all her diplomatic damage. She should have been content, staging piano concerts to political correctness politicians.
