War to Defeat Hamas, or to Win the Elections?

Posted by JewishRefugee

Israel has finally retaliated against the Hamas enclaves in Gaza Strip. Great start IDF, IAF, and the rest of the Israeli military; but the question arises why did this government have to wait for more than 2 years for this operation to begin? Qassam rockets rained down from Gaza on South Israel not just last week, but for years now. In other words no new external developments emerged for pacifists Ehud Barak (Labor), Ehud Olmert and Tzipi Livni (Kadima) to finally decide upon a military incursion into Gaza Strip. Except the internal developments that will come as soon as February 10, 2009: the elections in Israel. Kadima and Labor parties according to the last conducted polls that I do not believe in anyway has shown that these parties will suffer a major blow while opposition party Likud will win a crushing victory over the lefties. So here we are trying to understand did the current Israeli political establishment (Kadima and Labor) go into war to defeat Hamas or to win the elections?

It is kind of intriguing that this government had more than two years but it decided act right before the elections or to be precise 43 days before the elections (today is December 27, 2008). Do Israeli’s have short term memory? Have we forgotten Second Lebanese War? Have we forgotten qassams that were constantly fired at us from North and the South that this very government could not stop? Have we forgotten humiliating ceasefire with Hezbollah? Have we forgotten Gilad Shalit, Regev and Goldvasser? Have we forgotten the corruption allegation regarding the Prime Minister of Israel? Have we forgotten the rape allegation on Haim Ramon? Have we forgotten the negotiations regarding the division of Jerusalem and the withdrawal from the Golan Heights? Have we forgotten soon to be nuclear armed Iran? Let me make myself clear this government has brought Israel into the most dangerous state that it has ever been since the 1948.

Can Israeli’s be that easily manipulated? Time will show.

I totally agree and support what you are doing.. You can’t negotiate peace. Peace only comes when one side or the other totally subdues and conquers the other side. Then and only then will peace come about. It should be the Palestinians that should give up the land because they lost the Six Day War, and the Yom Kipper War. It’s time that we stand together as one and never give up another inch of Israeli land. Let hell freeze over first!

Will this economic crisis force the Jews around the world to leave the Galut (Diaspora)and come home to Israel?

Will the return of six million Jews from Diaspora change the political landscape?
