Of course, Hamas must continue to exist. Hamas is carrying out terms of the Israeli-Palestinian Mutual Suicide Pact. Hamas rockets are justified by Israeli bombing. Israel is doing its part too. Israeli bombs are justified by Hamas rockets. Hamas rockets are also justified by Israeli checkpoints. Israeli checkpoints are justified by Hamas terrorists. Hamas terrorists are justified by Israeli Settlements. Israeli Settlements are justified by Hamas intransigence. Hamas intransigence is justified by Israeli existence. Of course, Israel must continue to exist. Isreal is carrying out terms of the Israeli-Palestinian Mutual Suicide Pact.

You lost me on Israeli settlements being justified by Hamas "intransigence." Please explain.

What intransigence on the part of Hamas led to the Israelis disregarding the peace treaty they had signed and continuing to build settlements on the West Bank and elsewhere?

Hamas fires dozens of rockets not in response to anything. Israel wants peace. Hamas wants to destroy Israel. There's no one to negotaite with.

To say Israel wants peace, indicates that but for Arab aggression, everything in the area would be fine. That is certainly not the case. Arab aggression is in large part a response to continued Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.

Certainly, if Hamas stopped firing rockets at Israel, then Israelis would experience peace. However, Palestinians would still be suffering at their hands. Hardly a long-term solution.

Last night on Hannity, I debated President of the America Together Foundation Michael Ghouse on the crisis between Israel and Hamas. At one point in the segment, Ghouse argued Hamas, a terrorist organization, has a right to exist.

Today, Israel dropped a message in Gaza warning civilians about an imminent strike and urged them to temporarily evacuate their homes.

To the residents of Sheikh Ijleen, Tal al Hawa, Remal al-Janoub, Zeitoun neighbourhood, Shoujaiyat al-Tourkman, Shoujaiyat al-Jadida:
