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.

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
