Why was there war in Gaza?
Washington Post, by Charles Krauthammer

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/22/2012 10:26:47 PM

Why was there an Israel-Gaza war in the first place? Resistance to the occupation, say Hamas and many in the international media. What occupation? Seven years ago, in front of the world, Israel pulled out of Gaza. It dismantled every settlement, withdrew every soldier, evacuated every Jew, leaving nothing and no one behind. Except for the greenhouses in which the settlers had grown fruit and flowers for export. These were left intact to help Gaza’s economy — only to be trashed when the Palestinians took over. Israel then declared its border with Gaza to be an international

Why? Because muslims hate Jews and want them wiped off the face of the earth. That´s it in a nutshell. It´s not exactly a secret as they have said so out loud for years and continue to do so.

Again, Krauthammer is doing the heavy thinking for the rest of the media. Most of the other ´analysis´ seems to be coming straight from the hamass propaganda dept.

They took over the Gaza to use as a launching pad closer to the border.

When they finally occupy Israel and wipe out the Jews, guess who´s next on the list ?

This question is about as profound as "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

Answer : because the zany Gazanians wanted to wipe out the other side.

So far Israel has only used non nuclear weapons,but if,in a future war they start to lose, they´ll still have their nuclear arsenal ready to be used. Once this point is reached, Israel could sure incinerate the whole middle east?

My question is why did Israel cede Gaza to the terrorists in the first place? Look at a map. Is there any better launching pad for missiles into Israel? It was partly pressure from the USA. I think the US should sign a mutual defense pact with Israel which, NATO like would guarantee to come to armed defense against any attack from Gaza.

To recognize morsi and hamas as the superior forces in the middle-east? To weaken Israel? To obey obama´s master, iran? Any one or more of those COULD be the answer because ALL of them seem to be the conclusion.

There was a war in Gaza because Obama was re-elected. Muslims know Obama is on their side and they have nothing to fear. Elections have consequences. As soon as Hamas is resupplied with rockets it will start again.

After Obama´s covert and overt support of the Muslim Brotherhood (and similar) takeover of Egypt and Libya, the Palestinians and their European supporters apparently figured that they could invade Israel with impunity. They counted on the the cheers of Europe and the passive approval of the Obama Administration to ensure an easy victory. They reckoned without the resolve of Israel. When it looked as if the Palestinians, not the Israelis, were about to be driven into the sea, peace broke out.

I just wonder who will be running Syria the next time war breaks out. Instead of the current madman it will probably be an odd-lot collection of Islamic terror groups, which will readily join hands with those in Gaza.

Putting a better spin on this, perhaps Israel has bigger fish to fry? They have absorbed and depleted much of Hamas´ rocket/missile inventory. The Israelis handled Hamas with despatch. Perhaps this is a defanging of their left flank to ease pressure for the upcoming attack on Iran? The Gaza incident involved primarily the air defense and ground forces, which will play a reduced role in an air attack on Iran. The Israelis will restock their "Iron Dome". The trick will be to deny this to Hamas.

Israel foolishly gave Gaza back to the terrorists, likely due to US and "world opinion" pressure. Gained them nothing. Hopefully Israel will reoccupy Gaza after its dust-up with Iran. Screw the world opinion stuff, Israel will never be tolerated by the muzzies or "the world".

The BBC News continually refers to Hamas ´officials.´ Since when are terrorists ´officials´? Does the BBC consider Zawahiri to be an al Qaeda ´official´? Is Osama bin Ladin considered to be a deceased al Qaeda ´official´?
Does the BBC respect terrorists? Apparently the answer is yes.

The Israeli´s new strategy is, Speak softly and carry a big Iron Dome, while Hamas seems to have adopted the srategy of, Yell loudly and pretend you´ve had a great victory while standing in the rubble of the many buildings Israel has destroyed along with the lives of 30 top Hamas leaders.

Thirty-five hundred years ago, God delivered the Israelites from Egypt when he parted the Red Sea; now, with another miracle, this time an amazing military invention that repels missile attacks, God has delivered his people from an Egyptian-sponsored terrorist organization.

Why war in Gaza? Israel, our "Outpost of Freedom" in the Middle East, is : (A) A tiny nation state with a population of only 7,933,200 souls (B) Has an Arab (Muslim, Druze) population of 1,636,600 (20.6%) (C) A land area of less than 9,000 square miles and (D) Is surrounded by over 300,000,000 Arabs intent, for the most part, of wiping the tiny "beacon light of freedom" from the face of the earth!

I think it was completely contrived in order for O and Hillary to look good ´negotiating´ the ceasefire. All part of the plan. Their criminality at Benghazi will never be prosecuted. They will never be held accountable. They just keep on, pretenders that they are, failing to defend this nation and its allies but protected by a corrupt press and a nation that has been neutered by fixed elections.

This particular flare up started because the Israelis blew up the Hamas military boss.
The Israelis blew up the Hamas military boss because he was attacking Israel.
The Israelis ceded Gaza because it can not be held (population) and it is impossible to defend militarily (look at the map).
Gaza can´t be a Palestinian state because the Israelis are blockading it.
The Israelis are blockading it because they don´t want the Palestinians to bring in more weaponry than they already do.
The rationale is fairly straight forward and simple. The CAUSES are what is difficult to reconcile. It´s not math, it´s calculus.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s

The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
