Israel invades Gaza.

A man cannot lay down the right of resisting them that assault him by force, to take away his life. ~ Thomas Hobbes

To my admitted surprise, Israel has wisely committed ground forces to Gaza, resisting the urge at a self-congratulatory admiration of their air power’s fireworks.

Men and boots get real work done.

Hamas will use civilians and sacred areas as a defense. Not only will this hinder Israeli attempts at killing militants, it will also be food for fawning cameras should the civilians be killed. There will be no photos of dead Israeli soldiers. Only, limp children in the arms of crying mothers, only the torn bodies of Hamas militants splayed on stretchers. What could be a trillion words will be reduced to a thousand–in a single photo of a leveled mosque or a school reduced to pebbles.

Many will secretly hope that Israel fails in its quest to destroy Hamas, all the while spouting hollow words about Zionist attrocities and conspiracies. They may as well present us with the updated version of, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Most of these people don’t really want peace, they want Israel to lose, and peace can be the simple and convenient tool of the hatemonger.

Palestinians will be better off with Hamas gone.

    Funny how much damage can come from innocent rocket attacks.

    Everyone should invite an innocent and loveable member of Hamas over for dinner.

    With all of the anti-Israeli sentiment being thrown about it took a while for me to realize that the videos you have in your link(Magus71) were not Israeli soldiers committing war crimes against Islamic people. Are you sure those videos are authentic because I have a hard time believing that Islamic Fundamentalists would do such a thing. We are taught Christians and Jews are evil and I see no videos of them doing such a thing in the name of their God. The videos must be suppressed and the internet must be biased.
