    The Spin - Defies Logic?


    To  the terrorist organization Hamas and its sympathizers, Israel is to  blame for the use of tunnels from Gaza to sneak into the Jewish State to  raid, kill and kidnap Israelis.

    The Israelis are to blame for using tunnels to smuggle in armaments and missiles to fire into Israel.

    If Israel would simply open the border, demilitarize the area, there would be no reason or use for the tunnels.

    In  other words, the terrorists would then be free to walk across the  border, kill and kidnap Israelis without having to resort to building  tunnels.

    There  would then be no need to smuggle weapons and bombs into Gaza by tunnel  if Israel would stop its barricade and allow free movement of weapons of  mass destruction.

    The  reason civilians are being killed is Israel trying to root out Hamas  and other jihadists. Hamas and jihadists have no choice, but to store  weapons in United Nations facilities and to hide out in the civilian  population since Israel is hellbent on defending itself from attacks.

    If  Israel would stand down, no civilians would be killed. Hamas, along  with other jihadists, would not have to use civilians as shields to  protect themselves.

    Ignore  that the only successful outcome called for by Hamas is the total  annihilation of the nation of Israel. It is Israel's fault for existing.

    From the Cornfield, I am sorry. This defies all logic.

    Yes,  I lament the loss of life by both sides. I lament the tragedy of  civilians being used as pawns and fodder to be cut down like hay.

    But let's be real.

    Put the blame where it belongs.
