Link between terror in Ukraine and Gaza

Israel invades Gaza to prevent Hamas from acquiring — and using — advanced missiles that downed a plane over Ukraine.

Somebody incompetent or malicious downs a passenger liner over Ukraine. Innocents die.

Israel invades Gaza. Innocents die.

There’s a link.
