Israel just made a two-state solution possible

A unity government of the Palestinian Authority and the terrorist Hamas doomed any possibility of a two-state solution. This war was a game-changer.

Remember the calumny heaped on Israel for unilaterally destroying Iraq’s nuclear reactor, Osirak, in 1981? Nine years later, when Iraq invaded Kuwait in August, 1990, and the US organized a coalition to go to war against Saddam Hussein, the US and the Arab world were profoundly grateful to Israel.

The coalition had to face conventional — not nuclear — weapons in Iraq and Kuwait.

FAA flight ban undercut US-Israel trust

The US said that Iron Dome made it safe for Israel ?to withdraw from the West Bank. The US undermined its position by banning flights to Israel due to a single rocket.

Innocents die. Israel invades Gaza. Innocents die. There’s a link. What Hamas wishes to do, the bad actors in Ukraine did. What Hamas seeks is precisely the sophisticated missiles in Ukraine currently beyond Hamas’ capacity. The type of inhumane action we witnessed over Ukraine is the goal of Ha...

Now we know why Gaza is so poor

Hamas, the democratically elected rulers of Gaza, diverted humanitarian aid and economic investment into terrorist tunnels. The poverty, dislocation and hopelessness in the Gaza Strip is a classic — perhaps the classic — example of the kid who killed his parents and then plead for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan. Self-caused: This is basis of the poverty, dislocation and hopelessness in Gaza. It’s not Israel. It’s not the US. It’s not the UN. It’s not history....
