The hidden agenda in Gaza: No two-front war against Iran

Israel is fighting harder against Hamas this time because of the number and sophistication of Hamas’ terror tunnels. But there’s another reason: The prospect of the West’s acceptance of a nuclear Iran.

We believe that one main reason, an unstated reason, why Israel is so forceful in its prosecution of the war against Hamas this time has nothing directly to do with Hamas. It has everything to do with Iran, specifically with the West’s weak kneed negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program.

Iron Dome has saved Palestinian lives

Iron Dome has saved Palestinian livesRadical reduction in Israeli casualties allows Israel time to calibrate surgical strikes — the best way around ‘human shields’ You thought Iron Dome was for Israel. It is for Palestinians, too. It has saved lives on both sides of the war. If there have to be rockets fired on Israeli population centers by Hamas and other terrorists in Gaza, thank G-d for this “star wars” anti-missile system that Ronald Reagan dreamed about, but no country besides Israel developed.
