Biden hardens tone on Israel

READER’S VIEWS - Jacques Fortier - The Freeman

Everyone pretends to care about Gaza’s civilians, but their actions show just the opposite.

Who are the Gazans? They are the people who voted Hamas into power. They are the people who made good wages working in Israel, where they collected the intelligence Hamas and Islamic Jihad needed to carry out the October 7th crimes against humanity. They passed out cake and candies and celebrated their children’s terrorism on that black day.

Was there ever a thought Israel would just curl up into a fetal position and do nothing to defend itself?

Now there is a war. People are dying and the systemically anti-Semitic UN and Muslim Students’ Associations across the world are whining. It’s not fair. It’s a genocide. They don’t see the irony of their chants calling for genocide against Israelis and all Jews.

Israel is absorbing more casualties than would any other army. They adjust their plans to minimize civilian casualties, though telling fighters from civilians is impossible as they are interchangeable.

The way to get “civilians” out of harm’s way is to move them across the border into the Sinai dessert. Setting up temporary tent cities, with all aid necessities to sustain the population while the war is raging, could be accomplished in days.

But there are problems. Egypt does not want them. The PLO started civil wars in Jordan and Lebanon and supported Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. They are seen as poisoned fruit. Hamas brought this war on themselves and will do their best to keep the people as human shields.

If you want to end this war, go after the Arabs, cut off their funding and force Hamas to surrender.
