Bibi is playing this out exactly right

Newsflash to the international community, in particular Obama whose foreign policy is going so well (in case you missed it, that was heavy sarcasm there): You don’t negotiate with terrorists, particularly when those terrorists have proven themselves entirely untrustworthy by breaking every ceasefire and continue to fire at you. You also don’t agree to the demands that reward the terrorists’ strategy of targeting civilians. You do not let the terrorists hold your country hostage to their demands.

To say that Bibi Netanyahu is under incredible international pressure to give in to terrorists and endanger his entire country is putting things mildly. He’s not willing to say that we will go to hell in a handbasket along with the rest of the Western World and, more on point, he’s not willing to let us be the sacrificial lamb that alerts the rest of the world that they are next and spurs them to the kind of self-defense they deplored when we used it and, believe me, they’d make our actions look mild as milk water. The world’s mea culpe about standing by while millions of Jews were massacred does jack for those who were massacred and we are not willing to be the next group that the world wrings their hands about after the fact.

Hamas wants a war of attrition, they’ve got it. Use those rockets now. The more they use out of their supply, the better the chance that we will see a demilitarized Gaza and then the only real tiniest glimmer for future peace.

Obama the pathetically weak wants to say that Bibi is too strong. No, he could and should be even stronger but, given the incredible pressures he’s under, he has proven strong enough to save his country and people so far. He’s more than earned my respect. I didn’t think he had it in him but he’s proven his metal so far. Stay strong Bibi.

    An unbiased reading of Obama’s self-described autobiography (later he called it fictionalized somewhat after he was caught in his usual array of lies) reveals a deeply disturbed man, and I mean mentally disturbed. A man who others propped up, promoted, and put into a position of leadership that he should have never obtained. He is more than unqualified; he is warped and vile. I have no respect for him, and only the greatest disgust for a US media that continues to cover his lies, mistakes, and corruption. The exception is Fox News.
    I read that Obama called Bibi “too strong” and I just wondered what garbage would come out of his mouth next. I disregard the international community leaders and their corruption. I certainly disregard Obama. I know that it is difficult, but I am grateful that Bibi is resisting the demands of Hamas, because they cannot be rewarded for murder and attacking innocent civilians.
    Those who support Hamas in the international community are criminals. I keep reading LIES on CNN, for example, who are already trying to rewrite the history of the conflict just in a matter of days. Hamas committed murders, Hamas started aggression, not the other way around.

    Couldn’t agree with you more! I can’t imagine the toll this war has taken on Bibi. Reading the updates on the Muqata puts my stomach in knots, so how he can face all the critics just boggles my mind. What I still don’t get it why Israel is getting bashed for it’s offensive on Hamas and NOTHING is being done about ISIS. I mean what is it going to take for the world to see that ISIS is coming after all of us?

    Netanyahu is too careful of what the world will say for whatever Israel does or does not!! That is the reason why he decided to do an nth repeat of what exactly happened in the past and basically Israel is back to square zero. And now Netanyahu and the Israel governments of the past and current are incapable to take the drastic measures that need to stop FOREVER the launches of rockets from Gaza into Israel. And one of this drastic measures, as unappealing it is to the Israelis, is the complete expulsion of all the Gaza population forever. Without it, Israel will keep repeating the crazy cycle of launch of rockets, Israel’s retaliation, various cease-fires, calm for a few more months, back to a repeat of the launch of rockets, and so on! Each time, Israelis will be killed, soldiers or Israeli inhabitants.

    How much blood Israel can accept before it says “enough is enough” and expulse the entire Gaza population? So far, decades and counting!!

    It is pure madness from the Israeli governments!! If the USA was at Israel’s place or even if any Muslim country was at Israel’s place, it would have ended forever decades ago!!!
