The world should support an Israeli invasion of Gaza

If the Israeli government decides to invade Gaza, the world should support the decision.

Israel has remained remarkably restrained over the years as terrorists within Gaza mercilessly target civilian centers with rocket attacks. The loss of life and property resulting from these attacks often receive the most attention. However, the psychological terror being waged against Israelis has been traditionally overlooked.

Opponents of forceful Israeli military response like to point out that these rocket attacks from Gaza only sporadically kill Israelis. Yet, these apologists fail to recognize the psychological terror that these thousands of rocket attacks inflict on Israelis. In Sderot, just across the border with Gaza, two hundred bomb shelters dot the roadsides. Israel constantly monitors skies over the region for rocket launches. Because of Sderot’s close proximity to Hamas strongholds, once a rocket is detected, unlike other parts of Israel where residents receive a 15 second warning, the government can only provide a ten second warning for residents of Sderot. Imagine the scramble of those in bed, in a vehicle, in the shower to run towards a concrete safe haven. Talk to a kindergartner who every day is reminded of the possibility of death as he spends recess on a playground built near a bomb shelter.

The situation now grows more grave. The threat from terrorist group Hamas has expanded beyond southern Israel to the suburbs of Tel Aviv, with Hamas utilizing much more advanced Fajr-5 rockets. Hamas uses these weapons indiscriminately, knowing that with randomness and civilian targeting terror grows exponentially.

Consider this. In just over eight months, terrorists launched more than 1,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel. Gaza is only 360 square kilometers in size, comparable to NYC which encompasses just over 300 square  miles. NYC is immediately adjacent to surrounding population centers; similarly, the urban areas within Gaza are just miles away from civilian centers in Israel. After all, Israel is not much larger in size than the state of New Jersey. If a terrorist organization successfully gained power in NYC, just as Hamas gained power in Gaza, and launched 1,000 rockets into New Jersey, what should the proper response be? Would we actually demand Governor Christie and President Obama to just hope for the best? Or would we think of suggesting New Jersey residents simply vacate their neighborhoods? On the contrary, sensible people from across this country would demand our Commander in Chief root out terrorist fortifications in an effort to protect our homeland.

The world should support Prime Minister Netanyahu should he choose to wage a ground invasion of Gaza. The invasion is morally justified, and we should be vocal in our approval.

    Israel ought to wipe out the Palesteinians & Iran’s nuclear facilities; God is on Israel’s side & I can’t say that about the US now.

      Israel stole the land after WWII. why should the Palestinians live in a prison? 90% of their land was stolen by Zionists in 1948 know the real history

    Can we import leaders from Israel ? Seriously…I would shoot back. Actually I am quite proud of that little country and hope one day to visit the same.

    King Al’Fred, I demand a national emergency in behalf of the people, for the people, and the area torn apart from “SANDY”.

    That’s right! I demand that our government deploy and send our troops in to help clean-up, rescue, and restore that area immediately!!

    Send the Marines, the National Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force, etc. Send the Helicopters with big nets of food, blankets, heaters, water, tents, Doctors, etc.; like I have seen them do out in the middle of some deserts in other countries. Our people have been hit by a catastrophe!!

    The Red Cross and F.E.M.A. are not merely enough!! These are donations from the people to operate; more money out of us people to help others. I say to you, our people pay millions of dollars for our Government, including all the Military, ships, jets, and trucks, to name a few. Working people of this country who pay and pay, and now we should and MUST do all we can in our own country’s powers to focus on the people and destruction from “SANDY”.

    We the people own it all!! However, where is all the equipment and manpower for our own people and the broken piece of our country?? I am applaud, very upset, brokenhearted, disappointed as to how things have developed through this mess; a giant insult and disregard by those who could have, and still can, help restore that broken part of our country’s body. After all, what is the most important thing in life for people, the human race?? Well…it doesn’t matter how much one has or how little one has; the most important thing in life is how we treat one another while we are here…Got it!!

    This country has failed!! We watch the news about Bengozzi and the love triangle with the General and other stories

    e.g. the tax hike “cliff” ; However “Sandy” and its destruction should be our country’s number one priority on our country’s list to rescue, Right Now!! What a Disgrace.

      America need the fema for other reasons who gives aid to the US when disaster strikes what are we the world police we should just let them handel it. If they would realize that they have lost and just give up gaza if they don’t want to participate in the terrorist organization then they should move out who ever wants to fight should stay back and fight they should route the refugees to another country

    Yet hamas rockets kill very few people. Israeli attacks are killing numerous people 36 since they started, with property damage being astronomical. Strikes hit civilians, children, and on occasion the Hamas targets they intended. Hamas is a small group and does not speak for all of the Palestinian people, yet it is the people who are paying for it. Not Hamas, but the innocent people why is there no mention of them in this. The constant threat of death in Israel is minimal yet try being a Palestinian civilian and you will end up so scared you don’t want to leave your house. This is propagandist crap you spew and the issue is much larger then you think. America needs to wash it’s hands of this and have nothing to do with it. Especially with the threat of Egypt entering to protect the Palestinian people since they have no military of any kind. Israel has warships, tanks, planes, guided munitions, and so much more this is an unfair and one sided fight. The IDF is one of the best SF units world wide and yet they can not surgically take out Hamas? I have a hard to believing that.

    Aside from this flash of color on the walls,
    cabinet painting or refacing and vinyl flooring
    that mimics wood or stone. Sundanese people, for example, you’re protected from any business that wants to build a new home. As readers of my blog posts will know, a home is difficult. However when the sun is lower and there are several considerations to keep in mind while carrying out home invasion.
