Frankly I am a bit fed up with the coverage of this issue but there is little doubt that it has the potential to disrupt world peace and for the life of me I cannot reason why. Israel has now been in existence for about sixty years. During this time they have shown, quite superbly at times that they, will defend themselves fiercely.
They have time after time proven that they wish to live in peace even to the point that they have, under international agreement, handed back land to the Palestinians even when it meant moving their own people from their homes. The Israeli government is a democracy which wishes to live in peace. It is not being allowed to.
Day after day, week after week, a terrorist organisation called Hamas which claims to be representing the Palestinian people, have been firing missiles indiscriminately
into southern Israel. It is absolutely unacceptable that a democratic country should be attacked by terrorists and Israel has responded accordingly.
Of course that is what Hamas wants. They care not a jot for their own people as they have shown time and time again by siting missile launchers in highly populated civilian areas. They know that there are enough Israeli hating arab countries who are just waiting for any excuse to pour their bile onto the Jews.
I think Israel should be allowed to put a stop to Hamas once and for all and then if they had any sense they would help to rebuild Palestine so that they could they live in peace with people who in return would have a decent standard of living for once in their poor miserable lives. It is very difficult to continue to hate people who are feeding you and in addition are putting your country back together again.
One final thought. I thought that there was a special envoy to the Middle East called let me think ... ah yes ... Tony Blair. Has anyone heard a peep from him? No I thought not proving once again that substance is not his forte.
