Obama nonsense

Wormtongue (a notorious liar) says (among the many, many, many things he says) he wants to end the Israeli siege of Gaza’s terrorists and let them have their own seaport and own international airport. That makes him either a useful idiot for the jihadis or a scumbag who wants them to destroy Israel.

Fortunately, even Haaretz, Israel’s New York Times (i.e. so leftist it avoids walking too heavily on its right foot) publishes at least one columnist who is quite blunt (although diplomatic) in his disagreement.

“….we must not reach any agreement with Gaza,” says former IDF intelligence operative Mordechai Kedar, “What can bring quiet to Gaza is only fear based on the sure knowledge that any provocation – and it doesn’t matter which organization does that provocation – will be answered with a non-proportionate response.

“The idea of removing the sea blockade should not even be broached and certainly not the thought of an airport. Israel can continue to sell Gaza food, water, medicines, gasoline and electricity to prevent a humanitarian tragedy there.”

Wormtongue isn’t even mentioned, which is probably as much diplomacy as he and his latest crop of ridiculous notions deserve.

  1. Well, if they agree to disarm and a system of sufficiently effective control is achieved – why not. But we all know they will never agree to it, and even if they do it will be one big lie.

  2. The best way, perhaps the only way, is to destroy their organizations by killing their leaders. But if most Gazans back Hamas, etc., and they certainly seem to, new ones would only take their place. As Kedar says, fear of a disproportionate response is the best remedy, “world opinion” be damned. But it ought to involve more stealth than King Kong offers.
