Chickenshits, but if we do shoot, that will remove the next hoard of these Godless Bastards...
You got that right Sam
once more be suckered/pressured into being a "nice, reasonable" guy. The history of this ongoing, volcanic conflict, demonstrates clearly, that [excepting for Sadat and Hussein of Jordan] no arab/islamic leader could ultimately be trusted to make good on a REAL peace agreement. Arafat was the prototype of the invocation of Mohammed's principle of the Treaty of Hudaibyya. Thus, he stonewalled, lied, misinformed, disinformed and literally dashed the hopes of world belief that the "palestinian problem" could finally be on the way to being settled. After signing the Oslo Accords, he breached his own security and let it slip out, that his Islamo-extremist brethren should not be concerned about his signing this agreement, because he would be treating it as(code word) Mohammed treated the Hudaibyyan Treaty with the Meccans.[When we get strong enough, we will attack and totally defeat and destroy the enemy, despite the "treaty"].
It is apparent to all but the most naive, that Hamas [a stateless terrorist entity, sometimes referred to as a "political party"] is being supplied and encouraged to fight a proxy war on behalf of the Iranian psychotics, Khomeine and Ahmedinejad; they would be overjoyed to see the "ruthless" Israelis decimate the Gaza PA territory, and use that as an excuse to attack Israel on the international "stage", and attempt to force bloodless international sanctions on Israel.
IMO, there is only one Israeli option. Since Israel has already been deemed a pariah by much of the rest of the world: Israel should not waste time on taking out Hamas leadership, or attempting to invade Gaza to stop the rocket attacks. Israel should tell the Iranian psychotics, PUBLICLY, if the rocket attacks do not cease, and Iranian Fajar missiles continue to impact on Israeli soil, Iran will begin to lose major installations, infrastructure, towns and cities [as provided for in the law of talion]......more specifically to the extreme,.....if Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are damaged, Teheran will be forfeit. Then, Israel MUST demonstrate that this is NOT a bluff.
I know you will believe I have descended, once more, into complete senile psychosis, when I tell you, this could be achieved without significant, if any, death or injury to the civilian population. Sometimes, science provides us with miraculous, serendipitous results. This one came from the A bomb tests, and the Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions, as well as in subsequent significant research.
