"Weve never had a crushing blow that hurt the other sides the ability to launch missiles," Amidror said, adding that he believes the only way to achieve complete quiet is to "retake Gaza and be there for six months to a year to clean it out."

Suddenly, faced with IDF's power they are no longer so keen on dying.
Why not just keep it?
Until Isreal finally pushes the Pali’s into Egypt, like the Jordanian’s did decades ago, they are going to have to do this over, and over again, every time Hamas/PLO starts to run out of money.
Terrorists operating from Afghanistan killed 3,000 Americans.
Did anyone say that we did not have the right to attack Afghanistan with the FULL force of our military?
Even Obama called it “the just war”.
Israel has the right of self defense and the right to use the full force of their military to DESTROY the threat to their country. Godspeed!
Where can Israel these surviving Palestinian thugs? Think the Saudis would take them [and take care of them]?
> Where can Israel these surviving Palestinian thugs?
My suggestion would be the bottom of the ocean. If transportation is a problem, I hear that Hamas is very keen on cement.
this needs to be the LAST war with Hamas
By the time this is over Hamas , and Islamic Jihad , should cease to exist . No quarter , no remainder .
At the same time it’s time to clean up . clear out the so-called West Bank . It’s time for Greater Israel to re-emerge . No better time .
the world needs to once and for all pound a stake thru the Islamo vampires heart .
America needs new leadership to accomplish our role in this . And without waiting for 2016....
Exactly. Why go in to destroy some hornets and pull out later and leave the nest? It seems to be a cycle with Israel. Palis attack; Israel does some small retaliation; Palis attack again; Israel goes bigger; Palis surge; Israel goes in country as now. Then they will pull out again as they always do.
The Israelies unilaterally gave the Palis the Gaza Strip. Now, they're paying for that stupid political move.
I am more cynical than that. While it may be true that they are not so keen on dying right now, but maybe they figure Israel might trade one hostage for 1,000 of them, so they have an ulterior motive.
Israeli patrols through Palestinian territory are routinely attacked by militants, mostly boys, throwing stones. They speed through and sometimes get hurt. They do not respond to the attacks as the intent is to force them to open fire. (Yes, that sounds insane, but it’s the life-has-no-value way the game is played.) If they are not willing to fire at the boys then they will take wearing damage every day. Firing will be videoed and used as evidence of Israeli brutality. In the total it will be a PR disaster.

Agree. Israel should just take back the Gaza Strip as part of Israel. It is a defensive move and their land anyway.
The UN and ‘world community’ would go nuts. The same people who haven’t done anything about Russia taking the Crimea from another country; a takeover that wasn’t defensive.
They should take Gaza and KEEP Gaza
“retake Gaza and be there for six months to a year to clean it out.”..........
Unless the “exterminate” all of the Pali’s, there will never be peace in Gaza or in Israel. It has to be all or nothing for Israel, be damned world opinion. What would you do if you have a neighbor that constantly tried to kill you or your kids, assuming there was no law enforcement to stop them? Would YOU not fight back or just take it and die?
Yes. See Crimea. The world will get over it.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The problem then being who do you turn it over to. A military presence like the West Bank might be possible.
Bring back the exiles of Gush Katif.
Such a “cleanout” would be negated within months of completion.
The only way to solve this is to expel the Palestinians from Gaza, all of them.
expel all the Palestinians
I had a strange dream last night on that topic.
For some reason I was visiting Israel when all hell broke loose. Israel was forced to drastic measures. Literally forcing the Palestinians out of Gaza (most going to the West Bank, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and what-not)
How in the world I would have gotten in the middle of that, I have no idea. I remember riding on a train, does Israel even have passenger rail these days?
They should just use aerial application of pig urine and pig shit over the areas causing problems!
Expel or let them stay with a loyalty oath and a promise — in 10 years -— to be Israeli citizens, if they behave.
Most would leave. Some would stay and be OK.
Offer $$ to leave and sell all real estate.
There are countries that would take them.
There are subway-type trains and some commuter trains.
I did read that when it was still a British mandate the Haganah had destroyed much of the rail network the Brits used in just one night in their battle for independence
Great! They should have never let idiotic Democrats in the US convince them to let the terrorists have it.
I don’t know. There were some engines that dated back to the 1967 war. It’s pretty small network because you can’t cross the border.
Jerusalem has a light rail that is very nice.
Tel Aviv has one starting; I think there are some stations operating, but it’s no where near finished.
As an aside, it’s all set up by the Brits, so it’s backwards from the USA (just like cars, but with cars we drive correctly).
more than I needed to know
The retired trains are interesting to read about
and you can see what happened to Ariel Sharon....
Stop eating roast pork late before going to bed. Ought to help ;)
I disagree. The only solution is to remove the problem. The problem is the Muslims.
