The fragile ceasefire in Gaza was still holding last night after three days, offering a glimmer of hope that the brutal conflict between Israel and the militant group Hamas might be at an end.

Israel believes it has killed more than 700 Hamas fighters in the past four weeks and destroyed at least 32 of the underground passages through which Hamas smuggles weaponry and launches terrorist attacks on the country.

In their cold-blooded parlance, Israel’s military leaders say they have ‘mown the grass’ sufficiently to enable a withdrawal of troops from Gaza. In other words, they have degraded Hamas’s military capacity to the extent that they believe it will take three or four years before the terrorist organisation can become truly belligerent again; before the gruesome cycle of Hamas provocation and ruthless Israeli retaliation begins once more.

At some point it will become clear to all that islam is by definition, intent upon expanding. Violently when needs be.

All the intellectualizing and hand wringing won't make that fact go away.

You either stop them DEAD in their tracks and stomp on them pushing them backwards, or they keep pressing forward.

And the facts are, that the Israelis are no different than any of those trapped Christians under siege on that mountain range.

...except right now, they're able to defend themselves while showing enormous restraint in their military responses.

It's sad how when the targets are Jews, how public perception can be so easily negatively manipulated against them.
