Hamas can't be rationally defended. I do criticize Israel for some things, but Hamas is run by barbaric villains who can't be vanquished fast enough if peace is ever to be. They claim victory after a 10-1 death rate against them. We do Israel and the Palestinians a disservice by brokering peace. Let them have a fuller victory, if that is what they think it is. In the end, more lives will be saved if Israel is allowed to prevailed. At the same time, she should clean her own house, unilaterally evacuate the settlements and recognize Palestine as independent.

Just as Israel is not "muslim-free",there is no reason why Palestine should be "Jew-free".

The Jews intend to take over it all from the Jordan to the sea. "God gave this land to me" is their mantra. They will not give an inch. The Zionists there are not even native Jews; they came from Germany, Poland, Russia. They should go back there where it is relatively safe for them now, safer than living in the middle of Islam.

In the aftermath of Israel’s latest conflict with Hamas terrorists, it seems that the Jewish state’s greatest failing was that it did not suffer enough casualties to satisfy its critics. And so, once again, the world is railing against “Israeli aggression” and casting its sympathies with those who seek to slaughter its civilians, and this despite the outrageous statements of the Islamic radicals hell-bent on destroying Israel.

On Thursday, November 23rd, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said, “Israel screamed with pain from what the resistance did to it. I thank everyone who provided us with arms and money, especially...
