I support the State of Israel but have never visited, nor intend to. My interests are elsewhere like the untamed Jungles of Guyana or the forest of Northern Maine. My closest relatives are second cousins who probably have never heard of me. They call my parents a few times a year.
Unlike the rest of my siblings I never accepted a trip from my parents. I preferred to work in the Mountains in long forgotten Hotels. This was a lucky turn of events. Every time I go for a security clearance the subject of Israel and my religious practices comes up. I explain my religious views are private and ask why I am being questioned about a country I never set foot in.
The Duck is intent upon talking about Gaza. It is fairly simple and straight forward. A group of genocidal religious fanatics intent on massacring Jews provoked a response. Rather than let its civilians die in assorted attacks it protected its civilians. These tunnels were strictly military in use and their construction was aided and abetted by criminal left types. How many cries did the left make about building supplies. Funny Hamas found enough to build scores of tunnels.
Hamas loves to create photo ops with its dead civilians. It places munitions and key personnel in areas designed to keep the body count high. The tunnel network could have been used by civilians as bomb shelters. Hamas kept the civilians away from the shelter.
Egypt and Saudi Arabia are not fans of Hamas. In fact Hamas only seems to have Turkey and Qatar and the deranged far left including Obama as supporters.
The truth is the residents of Gaza are Egyptian and the area needs to be annexed. Whatever Egypt does to
pacify the area is justified. No doubt there will be a huge body count but the residents of Gaza will have Muslim rule.
