Bibi rocks: ceasefire not on the table
Here’s the deal. We are fed up. We have finally reached the last straw. We are not willing to see a situation that will have us seeing the same situation a year, two years, or three years down the line. We don’t want a ceasefire, we want a resolution.
We should have taken out both Hamas and Hezbollah and their military capabilities when they attacked us back during the Second Lebanon War but bowed to international pressure and stopped before the job was not even half done. The result is that both Hamas and Hezbollah massively increased their weapons supplies and capabilities and Hezbollah continues to do so to this day as the U.N. peacekeepers turn a blind eye.
Then we had the opportunity to eradicate the terror infrastructure in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in 2009, when we finally responded to continual rocket attacks from Gaza. But again we bowed to hysterical international pressure and agreed to a ceasefire that saw Hamas again stockpiling ever more advanced and deadly rockets through their smuggling tunnels.
Sporadic attacks on us continued and then Hamas launched barrages of missiles at us again in 2012, including showing off their new weapons that could reach Tel Aviv. International pressure saw us again return to the status quo and Hamas again getting more rockets and more advanced rockets — the ones they have now have reached as far as Haifa.
We are done with this. We do not want to see Operation Whatever Whatever in 2016 or 2017. We want to see the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza completely eliminated and their possibility of getting a new arsenal of weapons completely gone.
We should agree to a ceasefire only when Hamas and friends are forced to cease because they have no more weapons to fire.
Go Bibi for politely telling Obama thanks for the offer to broker a ceasefire but we ain’t interested.
