After a rocket was fired at Eilat by Al Qaeda-inspired Ansar Beit al-Maqdis (Partisans of Jerusalem) Friday night, and shot down by Iron Dome, Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz warned Saturday that at the current rate, Israel will soon have to once again enter Gaza to destroy Hamas, the Islamist terrorist group which currently controls the territory.

“In the last year or two there has been an improvement in the security situation, fewer rockets have been fired at Israel and fewer Israelis have been injured,” noted Steinitz. “But if the trickle of rockets from Gaza continues, we’ll have no choice but to enter and eliminate the Hamas rule, allowing the Palestinian Authority (PA) to rule Gaza again.” …

No, it isn’t a reversal of the huge mistake of the Gaza withdrawal.

Yeah... maybe Israel should do that — but what about Iran?

They need to drive the Arabs back into either Jordan, or to their native homeland of Saudi Arabia, where fellow Arabs will welcome their Muslim brothers with open arms and provide them with the support and aid that is so famous among Arab Muslims.

Why allow the PA to rule Gaza again? Actually, why not get rid of the PA also, annex Judea and Samaria, and tell the world to kiss it?

If I had just 30 seconds with Netanyahu, I would tell him to forget the US, EU and UN and remember Psalm 121:

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.

Deut. 32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the reckoning of the children of Israel.

IOW, just in case the PA and Hamas were getting serious about unity... thanks Olog-hai.
