New violence in Israel and West Bank
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.
