Like on so many past occasions, Israel is on the brink of war. It’s a war not of Israel’s doing but one necessitated by the long held desire of Hamas terrorists to wipe Israel off the map. It’s a war launched by enclaves of terrorists hiding in Gaza and elsewhere amidst civilian populations in schools, apartment buildings and hospitals. And, it’s a war that is meant to indiscriminately kill as many Jews as possible.
Israel’s response will no doubt be tough and she will, as usual, endure the full brunt of world criticism which erroneously believes you can negotiate peace at the end of a missile targeting your family, your children and your home.
