Hamas Rejection of Peace Could Actually Save Israel


We are baffled, confused, concerned, distressed, perturbed and rightfully frightened and scared. What we cannot figure out is who are the crazies in the Israeli government who believe the terms leaked thusfar for a peace with Hamas and the declared end of violence on the Gaza border are at all acceptable and will tend to the betterment and peaceful existence, if any existence, of Israel in the future. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beytenu) has to be the initial suspect for even giving this obviously flawed plan any consideration. Next is Prime Minister Netanyahu (Likud) who has to take the credited blame for permitting such a disaster to even reach the point of floating trial balloons, after all, have we not had enough of incendiary balloons, and this peace will result in things incendiary falling over all of Israel in the near future once implemented. Here is a link to an article with the essentials of the deal which became public. The two things which we found most distressing was permitting Gaza, meaning Hamas and Islamic Jihad, to have a port on one of the central points of the Suez Canal located at the city of Ismailia which sits on Timsah Lake which is a central part of the Suez Canal. Anything imported through this port would be transferred into Gaza through the Rafah Crossing which would be reopened and remain open continually. The deal also requires that Israel open the Kerem Shalom crossing. Finally, as part of stage-one, this plan actually has five stages which we would predict would never reach stage-four before a real war breaks out from Gaza, and this would be a real to the death war, there would be an airport opened in the Sinai Peninsula for the use of the Gazans, read Hamas and Islamic Jihad getting imports from Iran, large and heavy imports.


Stage-two would require Israel to measurably increase the electricity it provides to Gaza. Read that carefully as it has no provision for Gaza to pay for any of this electricity but should Israel cut it off it would be breaking the agreement. Even if Hamas were to explode the high-tension power towers, Israel would be found out of compliance because the electricity stopped flowing. Further, there would be a complete opening of the blockade around Gaza. During this stage, Israel would also allow import and export of everything into and out of Gaza that Hamas and Islamic Jihad desires without any limitations, inspections or any form of control. Stage-three would include the United Nations executing humanitarian projects it previously promised, including an airport, seaport, general rehabilitation of Gaza, and the construction of a power station in Sinai. Somewhere between the stage-two and stage-three, most likely during stage-three, Hamas will have built a modern fighting force with artillery, tank corps, armored personnel carriers, fighter jets, attack helicopters, troop carrying helicopters, air assault capabilities and a navy which would include corvettes, destroyers and a submarine force all complimented by guided ballistic missiles with many tens to hundreds of kilometers of range, warheads with tonnage of high-explosives and accuracy of within fifty-meters of aiming-point and potentially even worse, a few nuclear warheads with twenty or thirty kiloton warheads. All the while, the economic situation would worsen and the crisis known as Gaza would have worsened and the world would continue to blame Israel claiming that we had not done enough to help the poor Gazans.

Well, we have a plan which would help the Gazans who desire to live well as our neighbors in peace and harmony. This would require finding sufficient Gazans willing to live in a modern multi-cultural democracy where everyone has equal rights and the driving force within the government and amongst the people is not attempting to blame Israel for every misfortune and constantly call for the destruction of Israel and the death of every Jews who exists anywhere. We would challenge the world to actually produce such a core of Gazans who number over five-thousand out of their population of over one-million-eight-hundred-thousands. We would hope that is not too much to ask before trying to rebuild Gaza as a functioning population with rational leadership, something totally lacking currently. Of course this plan would need to be a well-kept-secret as its implication would depend on Hamas doing exactly what they have been doing for the past going on five months, attacking Israel, destroying livelihoods, destroying fields of crops, burning down forests, burning up wildlife preserves, targeting civilians and especially targeting kindergartens and schools. After Israel would have cleared Gaza of its vile leadership and removed all leadership, members and supporters of Hamas and Islamic Jihad along with the criminal elements who have gotten wealthy on their black market and weapons smuggling, then we could build a functioning establishment starting with those individuals found who love peace and wish to reside in partnership under their own leadership.


Of course, we fully expect that the United Nations, European Union, numerous countries from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, third world and anywhere else and of course the United States State Department all to condemn such a plan giving every reason except the truth, that they want Israel destroyed as it stands in the way of a single world order run by those who truly know what is best. Who are these people that know best? Well, they are the same people who have gotten the world to the state in which we find it currently. They were the people who almost as soon as Israel was a concept and was to be brought back into existence in its ancient homelands after over two-thousand years of exile, insisted it not be allowed to be born and once born that it not be recognized and once recognized have yet to miss an opportunity to attempt to dirty her reputation or demand her being expelled from the world of nations. These are the forces which convinced the Kurds not to declare themselves a nation, which they heeded which was their greatest mistake since trusting the British. We understand, as we trusted the British and were also told that declaring our statehood was inconvenient and that we should wait until the State Department and others gave us their blessing. Had we heeded that, we would still be waiting and in the meantime the surrounding peoples would have been doing everything to erase us from existence and the State Department would have declared us terrorists. Thank Hashem we did not listen, as Jews we have often survived by not listening to others telling what would be best for us, it seldom would have been best. We survived barely listening on occasions which all resulted in great calamities and conflagrations which have often almost purged us from the world’s population, but we had a secret weapon, Torah and Hashem.


The alternative to finding rational non-Islamists to govern Gaza replacing Hamas and Islamic Jihad who have taken what could have been a tourist haven and a delight and turned it into a complete pit of torment and suffering with the sewage treatment plant regularly overflowing into the streets in such surging tides of morass that people have been killed. Almost the entirety of their multi-billion Euro budget is thrown into manufacture of rockets, incendiary devices, bunkers, interconnecting tunnels, rocket launchers, mobile MLRVs, weapons of all sorts and infiltration tunnels under the border into Israel which Israel destroys upon their detection making these tens to hundreds of thousand Euro tunnels a complete failure wasting their funds which could build homes and apartments and built a functioning economy. The school system teaches military tactics and hatred of Jews and Israel. Summer camps appear to be closer to basic training than a summer camp. Hamas and Islamic Jihad with their supporters are basing their entire governance upon hatred and the destruction of Israel by any and all means possible. They claim to have great support pointing to the tens of thousands, often an exaggeration repeated warmly and enthusiastically by the mainstream media, when the reality is that the vast majority of the people were not protesting violently or otherwise at the border and many who were there had been paid to riot. Hamas lays their claim to govern on a single closed election where the choice was the Palestinian Authority which were the incumbents and present government which the people despised and would have voted for the devil himself if that were the other choice, and in some ways Hamas was the devil itself and the people chose Hamas to replace the Palestinian Authority which led to the civil war between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas allied with Islamic Jihad for control of Gaza in 2007 and Hamas won. Elections since then have not been held, they won one election once, Arab democracy in action. Eventually, Hamas will cause sufficient damage to central Israel, and this is unfortunately coming sooner if this peace is accepted, that the only choice the people will give the government of Israel will be the complete and total annihilation of Gaza, wiping it clean and simply doing something the world has not seen yet this century, a completely capable and trained military going completely Biblical against their enemy, doing to Gaza what Joshua and the Israelites did to the Canaanite kings who came against them. The Israelites came into the lands and gave the Canaanites three choices; they could live peaceably by the Noahic Code which contained seven principles for basic civilization, second choice was to pick up their properties, flocks, families and members of their household and leave to restart their lives outside of the borders of Israel and they promised to leave them to go in peace and not chase them down or they could choose the final third choice, to make war, make an absolute and complete war where at the end only one side stands. The Israelites had been instructed that for those who chose war they were to kill every man, woman and child and to slaughter their sheep, goats and all animals and take all their idols and put them to the torch and smash them into small unrecognizable dust and to leave absolutely no trace of their existence having ever dwelled there. Gaza with Hamas and Islamic Jihad chose war, complete and Biblical war of annihilation, which is exactly what the Hamas Charter demands them to do to the Jews. Eventually, this war will happen and only one will remain in the end.
