THREE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES IN GAZA

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry meets with U.N. Secretary-General Ban in Jerusalem

There are only three possible outcomes in the Gaza War: a decisive Israeli victory, which dismantles the terror tunnels and reduces the capacity to launch rockets; another inconclusive cease fire, with no preconditions or resolution of key issues; or a deal dictated by the international community, where Hamas stops rockets in return for getting concessions on all its key demands. Amazingly, Secretary of State Kerry favored the third alternative – which would guarantee another war. That policy would reward the terrorists for starting a war, and then deliberately sacrificing hundreds of civilians in the ensuing conflict. If Hamas gains from violent attacks,why wouldn’t they use such strategies again? Only one resolution brings peace: demilitarization of Gaza with a clear message that attacks on your neighbors mean devastating results, not international sympathy. Unfortunately, misguided “moral equivalence” idiocy from the state department makes lasting truce vastly more difficult.

    Take them over including the west bank and give them full citizenship and treat them llike we treat our indigenous people,or treat them like we treated japan and guide them toward state-hood.Keep in mind you owe them that!!!!!!

      The Japanese and indigenous people did not continually fire thousands of
      rockets at the US after a cessation of hostilities.

    Make just the Gaza Strip a part of Egypt with effective rule by Egypt.

    Terror tunnels? Aren’t these the very tunnels that the perceived Jews (really Khazar impostors) dug under Palestine for their King David indoctrination tours? And what’s the score so far? 1000 dead REAL Semites (the Palestinians) and 70 dead impostors? I hate warmongers!

    It appears, from the vantage point of several days after the above column
    was formulated, that the incursion is ending with some elements of each
    of Michael’s three possible outcomes with an emphasis on one and three.
    The absolute rejection of Israel by the Palestinians and the continued
    cultural acceptance of Jewish eradication desires make it highly unlikely
    that the world will not continue to face an aggression cycle in Gaza.
    It would be great if everyone would take a deep breath, sing CUM By
    YAH, and to quote Rodney King….”Just get along” but I find this highly
    unlikely.

    I am so sick of people picking on Israel. People Israel is defending themselves period. And why do Jews have to die to be morally equivelent. Just because Israel is smarter and has better weapons to fend off the rocket attacks
