One of the mantras heard in the condemnation of Israel in the current struggle to end the rocket bombardment and destroy the infiltration tunnel networks of the Hamas terrorist forces is that while there are hundreds of casualties being suffered within Gaza there are relatively little damage and a near unbelievable lack of noticeable casualties amongst the Israeli populations and cities. This lack of such disaster spread throughout Israel is due to two basic facts, first, the Hamas rockets are unguided and inaccurate with the majority landing in open areas thus doing little other than difficult to measure psychological damage simply from the repeated sirens and the having to hurriedly head for shelters and spend anxious minutes or longer in tense anxiety and second, the next to impossible success of the Iron Dome interceptor batteries which have downed approaching perfect interception percentage which has spared Israel the damage and casualties which previously would reached frightful levels. Take away either of these two factors and Israel would be showing similar levels of damage and significantly higher casualties than are being witnessed in Gaza despite the facts that Hamas places their civilians in the path of dangers and risks their lives in order to attempt to prevent attacks on something they value more than their people’s lives, their rockets to launch in the hope of murdering as many Israelis as possible while Israel invests whatever is necessary to prevent any harm from coming to her civilians. For those hanging on every new broadcast hoping for news of a highly successful attack which brings devastation to those Israelis, it will only take one failure of the Iron Dome batteries which are tasked with protecting Tel Aviv for your dreams to be unfortunately realized. In central Tel Aviv are tall office buildings with ten having forty or more floors and one that clears fifty which could be struck by a Hamas rocket and some of their largest are capable of doing sufficient damage to collapse one such skyscraper making such a strike the worst terrorist strike in Israeli history with a potential of thousands of murdered Israelis as a result of that one rocket which might get through. Those who hold the disparate death tolls and damages as their reason for despising Israel and throwing their sympathies to Hamas in empathy for their greater losses are damning Israel because of her success at protecting her population.

If instead of measuring by damage taken one were to measure the presumed disparity by number of explosive bombs and warheads launched or dropped and number of attempted ground mission and took the period of time leading up to the Israeli ground assault beginning you might be surprised. This comparison does not include the over a thousand rockets launched by Hamas into Israel before Israel launched her first bombing mission and only those rockets and attempted infiltrations by Hamas measured against the number of Israeli bombs and commando raids. The explosive comparison had slightly over a thousand-five-hundred Hamas rockets while the Israelis retaliated with slightly over two-thousand bombs with Hamas having attempted around a half-dozen infiltrations against a single naval commando mission by Israel. When one looks at the attacks and attempts to impart damage, destruction and casualties on the other side the conflict between Israel and Hamas becomes far more even contest with the measurable difference being in the preparation and success in defending and protecting ones people from those attacks.

This holding Israel at fault because of her being the stronger and more technologically advanced also ignores one of the most vital and important facts, Israel did not initiate this war and Israel removed every last Israeli and removed every IDF troop and base from all of Gaza in August of 2005. When people point to the blockade it needs to be pointed out that when Israel removed their presence they tuned the greenhouses and working businesses worth millions of dollars behind for the Gazans to utilize giving them functioning and profitable operations and did not impose any blockade on Gaza until after Hamas took control of Gaza in a bloody and violent coup defeating the forces of the Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas. As long as the Palestinian Authority was governing Gaza the Israelis felt little need to clamp strict control over the ports in Gaza but this sense of security dissipated when Hamas which is sworn to the destruction of Israel and the eradication of Jews worldwide stipulated in the clearest possible language in the Hamas Charter and is a unifying theme taught in their schools and portrayed throughout their media.

Anybody who has attended one of the liberal arts colleges or universities and received lectures from professors holding the typical anti-capitalist and anti-American views such as often lectured by such as Noam Chomsky you would be familiar with their anti-American programs. They claim that American culture is polluting the world and tainting the natural culture and altering societies claiming that this societal culture creep that is Americanizing many of the cultures in the third world presumably destroying these primitive cultures which they claim are superior to the crass American culture as the more primitive cultures presumably live in harmony with nature. They also claim that the United States is the worst polluter of nature in the world, something far from borne out by actual unmassaged statistics. Was the United States a large pollution engine a number of decades ago? Yes, though not necessarily the worst. The truth is that since the 1970s the United States has been the only nation that has actually met and surpassed the stringent requirements set by the Kyoto Protocols despite the fact that the United States never signed on to these standards. Another canard is that the United States economic wealth has stolen from the less developed world their share of wealth because since the available wealth is presumably constant, their claim, not mine, then by obvious measurement, by the United States having so much wealth they have to have made it unfairly by robbing the poorer nations. What they are intentionally suppressing is that wealth is not a constant and the United States historically has been the greatest creator of wealth.

What, you need some proof that wealth is constantly being created? To use the most obvious proof that wealth grows over time and directly proportionally to technological advancement one need look no further than ancient human history, real ancient human history. Original ancient man, as in Homo erectus, our ancient ancestors hunted with spears and possibly bow and arrows and the keeper of the fire would be put to death if he permitted the fire to be extinguished and was responsible for transporting the embers to spark the fire when the tribe migrated. We could now trend the advances and thus creations of wealth through the ages with the Greeks and Romans who used plumbing, aqueducts and relatively complex weaponry compared to spears but quite primitive and useless against modern weaponry. Then we see what we have today with buildings covering large swaths of Europe and the United States, automobiles and other items which not long ago were considered luxuries or were not yet invented. All of these are indication of increased available wealth and by claiming that American culture and production methods are ruinous to less advanced nations is actually a form of elitism which is using false arguments to keep the third world less advanced and inferior to the technologically modern world by claiming that their lack of modernity is a state of existence that needs to be preserved. Where this is actually more destructive ecologically can also be described by researching the production of a simple product which has been in existence for numerous centuries, the production of charcoal. Modern charcoal is produced using electrical heating elements with the wood chips placed in a chamber which is filled with CO2 which minimizes escaping pollution while the tried and true old school method is to make large piles of wood chips and allow them to smolder such that the ones buried in the center are oxygen starved and are made into charcoal but produce heavy amounts of smoke and if a large area is used to mass produce charcoal with numerous large mounds smoldering away the area can become absolutely toxic. Which way would any intelligent ecological activist desire to have people worldwide produce charcoal, with modern equipment or the good old fashioned way which is still used in much of today’s world? Criticizing the United States for having a worldwide cultural influence and a greater proportion of the world’s per capita wealth is a form of primitivism and a rejection of advanced technology. This is found in a number of other elitist fads such as rejection of most technological advancements in agricultural preferring “natural” products. The same crippling anti-success jealousy which has infected much of social academia is behind much of the anti-Americanism as it is also behind much of the anti-Israel hatreds. This is most evident in the condemnation of Israel for protecting her people while sympathizing with Hamas because they appear disadvantaged by the resulting casualty numbers and destruction of infrastructure despite the actual number and size of explosives launched by each side being relatively equal, and actually favoring Hamas if one includes the three week buildup of rockets fired into Israel before the initial Israeli response to those attacks. But it is so much more noble to favor the underdog and it gives one a sense of superiority but cannot be assumed to grant them any moral advantage, that takes a more reasoned, systematic and unemotional examination of facts and actual numbers and not kneejerk emotional spontaneous reactions.

Stop Telling Us We Cannot Pay the Price

There is a multi-front assault against the Israeli operation Defensive Shield predominantly by the administration of United States President Barack Obama which is being fully supported by the European Union and the majority of European governments and the United Nations with a large supportive roll being gleefully executed by United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay and her organization, sent to occupy the front lines and press Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israeli government to make the concessions demanded by Hamas just so the Israeli military actions in Gaza can be brought to an end and peace and quiet be restored to the areas and residents of Gaza. There are no demands for Hamas in Gaza to stop their attempts to infiltrate Israel through their remaining tunnels yet to be located and destroyed in order to execute mass assault of the Israeli communities the tunnels are designed to reach and attempt to kill large numbers and abduct others to hold as they did with IDF soldier Gilad Shalit pressing to trade them for the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons. These efforts are being further supported by the world’s mainstream media new sources which have stressed the numbers of Gazan casualties intimating that virtually every Gazan casualty was an innocent civilian noncombatant while stressing each and every IDF casualty interviewing those close to the soldier and others until they have sufficient Israelis they can quote claiming that Israel must cease all military actions as they have no hope to accomplish anything further and any additional casualties will all be in vain. Then there is the economic assault being perpetrated by the United States Federal Aviation Administration, a government agency which controls the entirety of the United States air carriers’ fleets, who suspended all American flights into Israel and Ben Gurion International Airport which was copied by the European airlines. Such a suspension will do far more than prevent tourism or travel plans by business people into or out of Israel by restricting the numbers of flights available because these actions has resulted in grossly restricting available flights. This ban also prevents any commercial shipments using United States or European air carriers such as Fed Ex, UPS, DHL and numerous other air freight carriers which will completely stifle and smother access to international trade by Israeli companies. Yet, almost within hours of the FAA ban on air travel into or out of Israel, Secretary of State John Kerry flew straight from Cairo into Ben Gurion International Airport in complete defiance of his own government’s ban, imagine that. Just to add to the dangerous activity engaged by Secretary of State John Kerry, he flew in on a standard executive version of a Boeing 757 airliner, not a military aircraft with defensive capabilities not found on standard airliners; it was just a nicely appointed 757 with really nice seats, and office, a bedroom and other niceties but no additional military capabilities.

 

The International press is also pressing every single defeatist quote they can find in their numerous interviews even if they had to ask leading questions in order to find the quote they desired. They exaggerate the demands that Israel must pull all IDF soldiers out of Gaza and deploy them within Israel and have them provide defensive functions as there will be no gains from their continued deployments within Gaza. There have been reports which make the claim that all of the Hamas tunnels have been located and destroyed. Such reports have appeared every day in one mainstream media report or another for the past week and will likely continue to appear until they can claim they got it correct. The fact that the IDF has found additional tunnels every single day and possibly every couple of hours has not dulled the mainstream media’s insatiable desire to continue the lie that there is nothing else left for the IDF to accomplish so they may as well be brought back to safety as any additional deaths will be unproductive. The overriding story is a constant beating of the further IDF operations inside Gaza against Hamas are endangering lives needlessly drums to deafening levels. That is why every mention of the death toll in Gaza makes no reference to the numbers of dead who are Hamas combatants and the mainstream media simply implies that every death is a civilian death. There is a tactic which is known well by the members of the mainstream media used by Hamas as well as numerous other terrorist entities almost in coordination with the media who accommodate this deceit by waiting for approval to photograph an area after a strike until the terrorist leadership in the area grants them their approval. The delay is used in order to transform the Hamas combatants into innocent civilians by a complex series of steps, they first remove any weapons from the dead combatant and remove any ammunition and grenades and remove rocket launchers from the area as well as anything else which might denote the corpse as belonging to a Hamas member and then presto-chango, instant civilian casualty. Israel has confirmed that at the very least they have killed approaching, if not surpassed, three-hundred Hamas and Islamic Jihad combatants but the media would never take IDF assurances as worth any credibility though Hamas press releases are sworn by as being from unimpeachable sources of the highest quality.

 

The next few days will have coverage of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and United States Secretary of State John Kerry releasing sound bites to the media about their hopes and beliefs that the Israelis will soon heed the calls from the world to end the needless carnage in Gaza and quiet may soon be reestablished in Gaza. There will likely be little commentary whether or not there will be quiet in Israel or if the rockets will continue to rain on civilian areas within Israel. Hamas has made it more than obvious that they will never accept any Egyptian brokered peace initiative and their obstinacy has been strongly reinforced by having meetings between United Nations and United States personnel with representatives of the governments of Turkey and Qatar and initiated further coordination in efforts to forge an initiative which might be more presentable and acceptable to Hamas. When one considers the statements made in recent days as well as over the past years by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan denouncing and demonizing Israel and insulting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu as well as other Israeli officials including Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and even Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, it is not surprising that the Turkish leadership would be completely supportive of Hamas. Their unrivaled support for Hamas is in complete agreement with their disintegrating relations with Egypt since the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood supported President Morsi and his replacement with former Egyptian Military Head General Sisi. Prime Minister Erdogan’s support for Sunni Islamist extremist militant groups even extends to his open support for ISIS. Also, Qatar has been Hamas’s most prolific and generous financial backer since their falling out with Iran over Hamas supporting the Sunni rebels against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad. It was a twenty-million dollar donation from Qatar which United Nations Middle East Envoy Robert Serry attempted to have transferred to Hamas during the search for the three Hamas abducted Israeli teens where he first requesting that Mahmoud Abbas handle the transactions and after being refused approached Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to make the transfer. This led to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman to demand his eviction. Why the United States and United Nations are both rebuking the Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire and instead seeking to facilitate either a Turkish or Qatari mediation escapes credulity unless one is to believe that both entities desire to place Israel in the worst and most compromised position possible and are seeking as pro-Hamas an agreement as can be presented to give their full backing and force upon Prime Minister Netanyahu. This also makes the actions by the FAA to suspend flights appear more as a shot across Israel’s bow than a necessary actions for the protection of the airlines. If the airlines believed there exists a serious and present danger to their aircraft, pilots, passengers and other personnel, they would not wait for any memo or announcement from the FAA, they would cancel the flights on their own volition. The only reason that an FAA order was issued was because the airline companies probably refused an advisory notice that continuing flights into Ben Gurion International Airport was no longer safe and should be suspended and that forced the administration’s hand and the ban was then issued taking the decision out of the airline company official’s hands. Just a point of information, Ben Gurion has an Iron Dome battery placed specifically to protect it from any missile attacks and the closest any Hamas rocket has struck was over a mile from the airport presenting no danger to approaching or leaving flights but did destroy an Israeli family’s home. This was the validating reason the FAA gave that flights to and from Israel were unsafe. Proof this move was an economic threat was the additional demand that the airline companies remove all their aircraft from Ben Gurion International Airport and fly them elsewhere devoid of passengers or cargos. This will cause the restitution of flights to take at least one additional day as the aircraft will need to be restationed inside Israel.

 

Between the media going to great lengths to write up the story that Israelis are tired of the death and destruction and that the deaths of soldiers are mounting to heights that have sapped the will of a nation to continue the fight are false and a disgusting attempt to poison the waters. The dispatch of Secretary of State Kerry when neither side requested his assistance is another affront which signifies that President Obama believes that this just might be the conflict where he can appear Presidential and win a victory even if it is at the cost of Israel’s future and the possibility for Israel to clean out the rats nest which is Gaza. There has been an eerie silence about the disposition of the rockets found stored at two separate United Nations Relief Workers Agency (UNRWA) schools which UNRWA officials arranged to have them removed by Hamas refusing Israeli requests simply for photographs as proof of the find. There has been no explanation why the request by a member state of the United Nations, Israel, was refused yet a recognized terrorist group even by the United Nations standards was given these rockets which were illegally stored in a United Nations facility. The world media and governments simply accepted such as business as usual. It is the accumulation of so many things as business as usual and virtually all of such events favoring Hamas over Israel which leads to suspicions that perhaps it really is Hamas with the cooperation, support, backing and blessings of the world governments and agencies against Israel. Yes, President Barack Obama has stated that the United States stands behind Israel in her right to defend themselves, but he also promised that the Americans under his healthcare initiative would save two-thousand-five-hundred dollars, be able to keep their own doctor if they liked them, keep their health insurance plan if they desired, and that after every scandal just read or heard it when everybody else did on the news, so somehow I will take his actions to speak louder than his words. His reliance on Turkey and Qatar, two nations supporting Hamas and antagonistic to Israel as proof of where his intentions and emotions lie. The backing of such by the United Nations and European Union do not make such decisions any more palatable. Israel needs to decide exactly what it is they require and feel is necessitated and then work towards that end regardless of whether or not Europe or the United States desire different. Let the news stories and the full court press by those less interested in the lives and future of Israelis and their country than they are with the survivability of Hamas and Islamic Jihad scream, pound their fists, stomp their feet and call Israel whatever names that intimate her being an out of control obsessive aggressive nation and yell it from the highest mountains and have it plastered across page one of media outlets the world across including even in Israel with thanks to Haaretz. We know what is necessary and what must be accomplished in order to make our little sliver of land safe and allow many of the children who have spent much of their lives living in fear and not playing outside without one eye on the closest shelter finally only have to worry about the weather and the rain falling onto their little heads be soft water and not steeled projectiles. Perhaps this is a little harsh, but perhaps Israel should send Secretaries Kerry and Ki-Moon back to their offices in the United States and tell them that this time, we will call them and do not call on us before then, thank you. This time the Hamas rockets are able to threaten and strike virtually every inch of Israel and if there were to be another time these rockets would become larger guided missiles with who knows what capabilities including chemical agent delivery which is the reason there cannot be a next time. This is a war for the life of Israel and we must fight it as such and everybody else may scream themselves hoarse, we are not listening and frankly only care about securing our future. Were your nation under the same threats you would act exactly as we must now act, so do not bother to condemn Israel for choosing life, we meant Never Again and continue to mean Never Again.

Hamas Abduction Balloon Must be Popped

From the beginning of this most recent Hamas systematic escalation of violence against Israel generally and her Jewish population in particular, one of the main objectives shared by all the Hamas terrorist fighters was the abduction of an Israeli, soldier or civilian was not among their concerns. This may have been what foiled with the abduction of the three youths in Judea and Samaria when after one of the kidnap victims succeeded in contacting Police led the Hamas kidnappers to believe they were likely to rapidly be facing capture so they immediately murdered the three youths and disposed of their bodies as rapidly as possible in a shallow grave. This was followed up by the claim earlier this week by Hamas that they had abducted an IDF soldier. This caused joyous celebrations in both Gaza and Judea and Samaria where there were crowds dancing and sharing sweets and cake. Initially Israel denied that any of their soldiers were not accounted for but later this fell into doubt as it appeared that one of the seven soldiers who were inside an APC (armored personnel carrier) which was destroyed and had been further destroyed by the ensuing fire, they found that potentially some body parts and his id tags were missing from within the destroyed vehicle. This creates a potential situation which has numerous similar cases from the past where terrorists such a Hezballah or Hamas have captured a live IDF soldier or taken an IDF soldier’s remains and held either in order to exchange either the live soldier, as Hamas did with Gilad Shailt, or the deceased soldier’s corpse, as Syria has done, for the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons. This must be the time where Israel puts this cynical and monstrous abduction temptation to rest permanently by refusing to permit such ransom from paying benefits ever again. Where this may become difficult is with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and United States Secretary of State Kerry and their teams all pressing Israel to agree to any sets of demands from Hamas just so long as they can declare that peace in our time has been attained and go home until the next war, and unless something radically different than all previous insanities is attempted this time, there will be a next war and another after that on infinitum.

 

There is one change which can alter the entire atmosphere and it is up to the Israeli leadership to initiate the necessary changes. The Israelis must inform all parties who are attempting to mediate an agreement that Israel will not entertain any peace proposals as long as any of their soldiers, civilians or even the mortal remains of a soldier or civilian is potentially being held as a hostage in order to force Israeli compliance and meeting of demands to release terrorists or any other demand which might be pressed for their return. After presenting the Israel position on this subject will come the difficult part, sticking to their guns. Once they have informed both Secretary Kerry and Secretary General Ki-Moon of their position and opinion that they refuse to cease their assault or even begin to negotiate until they have whomever Hamas may be holding returned, they must then literally be willing to hold fast to that position and when these diplomatic opportunists return demanding Israeli negotiate, they must politely refuse and restate their demand that their people be returned regardless of their condition. When the point is eventually made that prisoners of war are usually negotiated for to gain their release, Israel must reply that this war is not a war between nations but an act of enforcement against an alliance of terrorist organizations which Hamas and Islamic Jihad are identified as such by both the United States and the United Nations therefore the laws of prisoners of war do not apply and it is actually a hostage situation and Israel will not be negotiating with terrorists who are holding Israeli hostages. They must make the point that the Israeli operations in Gaza will continue and will, if necessary, overturn every last brick and tear away every board until they locate their missing personnel or their remains and that if Hamas has any desire for an end to hostilities, they can start by returning the abducted Israeli personnel. Then, until Hamas complies Israel needs to continue their Gaza operations and continue to seek their personnel and take whatever measures militarily are required in order to gain their release and return without exception or mercy.

 

The Israeli people need to reinforce this position by making it obvious through polling, demonstrations, petition drives and every other possible means that not only are they in complete support of no negotiations and no peace until all Israelis are returned to Israel and that if the leaders of this government are unable to hold such a tight line and position then the people will do whatever it takes to vote in leaders who have the willpower and intestinal fortitude to stand up for every Israeli as any one of the people of Israel could be the next terrorist bargaining chip. Only by making the abduction of both civilians and soldiers and even the stealing of the remains of a fallen soldier or Israeli civilian will not serve to the advantage and will result in bringing ruin down on the terrorist group and the population which supports them and such force will only increase over time. We have tried the other approach of negotiating for the return of our people or their remains and such has reached the point where the costs can no longer be tolerated. For that reason and for the future safety of every Israeli the practice of abduction and ransom must end and end immediately with whatever Hamas believes they are holding if such proves even that they have stolen parts of one of our brave IDF soldiers who sacrificed all in our protection. For those who have given so much we must demand their loss is respected by our leaders and such respect is forced upon our enemies such that they never again even think of stealing a single cell from one of our fallen heroes. For the future and for the dignity of fallen soldiers in this war and in all future conflicts we must stand firm and take this to whatever extreme proves necessary. We already know that our enemies do not believe in the same virtues as do we and that they hold opposing ideas of what is valuable as they value death which they prove by placing their innocents before their fighters while we value life which is why our soldiers stand between the people and our enemies. As was stated by Prime Minister Netanyahu, “We are using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.” The differences are as stark as they have been in any war in the history of mankind. This is the latest struggle between civilization and the barbarians and the barbarians of Hamas cannot be permitted to use any act to gain advantage no matter how depraved or obscene.

 

Hamas must be destroyed as must their friends in Islamic Jihad and the plethora of terrorist groups throughout Gaza and eventually the same will be necessitated for Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem and further with those who are their supporters and sympathizers wherever they are to be found. And the accusations that Israel is using disproportionate force, we hope so as only a fool restricts the force they will use to equal the force used by their antagonist, especially when it was their antagonist which started the conflict. The world needs to adjust their moral consciences when they can ignore the carnage in Syria, the destructive barbarity which has brought back the use of crucifixion in Iraq, the war torn strife paralyzing Libya and the rest of the conflagrations around the world but become apoplectic the second Israel protects her people from the indiscriminate launching of rockets into her civilian population covering over three-fourths of the nation. The Malaysian airliner shot from the skies over eastern Ukraine by Russian separatists murdered more innocent civilians than Israel has civilians in Gaza during the entirety thus far of the conflict. What the news reports are refusing to tell the people of the world is that the fatalities in Gaza have consisted of close to 80% Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists but the news simply reports the total number of dead and implies that they are all civilians. I ask you honestly, how is it possible that the only dead in Gaza could all be civilians when the news has shown Israeli strikes which targeted only Hamas or other terrorist armed combatants? It simply does not hold up to inspection or reason, but many are fooled into thinking the number of dead in Gaza do not mean that any terrorists have been killed. Wake up and think for yourselves or the world really will deserve whatever it gets, just do not expect those who are awake, thinking and actually seeking truth to stand idly by and go over the cliff with the unthinking droves of sleepwalking humans who simply lap up whatever pabulum they are fed by the media.
