THE SAME TASKS STILL EXIST! ISRAEL MUST TAKE OVER GAZA AND SMASH HAMAS! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY!
91% of Israeli Jews support the ongoing ‘Operation Protective Edge” and 85% would only support a cease-fire agreement if Israel eliminated every Hamas rocket and destroyed the full network of terror tunnels used by Hamas to attack Israeli civilians, Arutz Sheva reports.
Top Pentagon intelligence official believes that the destruction of Hamas would only lead to something more dangerous taking its place – like ISIS.
The decision that was facing the Israeli leadership of the war was exactly that. Should Israel go on and break up the Hamas organization and take control of the Gaza? Or should Israel seek a deal with Hamas?
It is very, very unfortunate indeed that Israel in the first 3 days of the war did not take over the Gaza. This would have repeated the time honoured methods of warfare as practiced in Ireland by the Irish King Brian Boru against the Danes which is to take the ground that the enemy sits on and hold on to that ground
As stated above it is clear that 91 of the Israelis would have supported Netanyahu if he had done that.
I am absolutely certain that the great majority of the American people would have supported Israel smashing up Hamas in Gaza.
So why on earth did Netanyahu not do that in the first 3 days of the war?
This is the crisis of leadership in Israeli politics. 4international disagrees with Martin Sherman on this. It is not enough to ask the Israeli leaders to do it. It is necessary to get rid of Netanyahu and to replace him with leaders who will do this.
That is the next step. It was always and will remain the next step.
