Why Israel Will Defeat Hamas

with 6 comments

These potential future terrorists will think twice when they see what Israel did to their families and homes

A lot of people in the international community have been all upset because Israel has recently gone in and attacked Gaza. In the months before these attacks, there was a 6 month ceasefire between Israel and Hamas that was ignored by both sides. Israel carried out raids into Gaza and didn’t open the crossings as it had pledged and Hamas killed 4 Israelis with rocket attacks. Israel refused to stand for this and decided to take out Hamas once and for all.

What Israel needs to do in order to defeat Hamas is to convince ordinary Palestinians that the violent way of Hamas isn’t the answer. Israel has risen to this occasion in a number of ways. They have put a very tight blockade on Gaza which has required that 90% of medicine, food, and other supplies that go into Gaza come through tunnels into Egypt. By making the people of Gaza dependent on Hamas for these smuggled goods, the Israelis will be able to make the people turn away from Hamas in much the same way the United States’ embargo against Cuba has weakened the government’s hold on the people. The other advantage of keeping 1.5 million people blockaded is that close quarters give people a chance to cool off by giving them a chance to release their pent up tension.

Israel also knows the best way to stop people from joining a cause like Hamas is to show them that you mean business. Israel has done this by killing nearly 300 children. Nothing takes the fight out of a person better than having a family member killed. That’s why Israel has been targeting schools. If Israel is able to kill unarmed civilians it’ll make the people of Hamas begin to wonder, “If they will kill an innocent 4 year old who did nothing, what will they do to me if I attack them?” This is called winning over hearts and minds.

It is only a matter of time before the Israeli troops achieve ultimate victory over Hamas. When this happens, Israel can finally negotiate the peaceful settlement with the Palestinians that they have been longer for.

  1. Why do you continue to believe the lies of Hamas? They use civilians as human shields. Stop perpetuating their propaganda.

  2. What lies? Israel is kicking some major butt. It won’t be long now until the Palestinians give up on armed struggle with this approach.

  3. Nothing like disuading someone not to use muderous violence than with an even worse bit of murderous violence against them.

  4. Exactly Lucy P. If they bring a knife, you bring a gun. If they bring a gun, you bring a bazooka.
