The inimitable Lieut. Col. Ralph Peters has said everything about the Hamas/Israel fight in the Gaza Strip that needs to be said. Like Bookworm, who guided me to this piece, I wish I had said it.
The Hamas devils have deliberately and with malice aforethought put civilians in the middle of their war; hiding in the homes and under the skirts and beds of children. The Euros and the idiots at the UN talking shop on Turtle Bay are busily trying to cobble together one of their patented no-cease-fire cease-fires.
The talkers and their "peace-process" cannot be allowed to succeed: letting Hamas off the hook licenses the tactic of using human shields, ensuring that the same thing will be repeated again and again, possibly on a larger scale. As Col. Peters says:
No cease-fires please, Israelis: just tell the UN to stuff it and that they can have their precious cease-fire when the last of the Hamas criminals are stone-cold dead.It's time to smash the lies. The lies of Hamas. The UN lies. And the save-the-terrorists lies of the global media.
There is no moral equivalence between Hamas terrorists and Israeli soldiers. There is no gray area. There is no point in negotiations.
