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.

Sec. of State John Kerry has announced that after six months of negotiations with Iran, explicitly designed to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, the matter is still unsettled. Who would have believed? Children in Sderot would have believed. Israelis in bomb shelters around the country would have believed. The commander of the Tehran-...

Layers of horror

Murder of Israeli teens, immolation of a Palestinian teen, Hamas rockets. A time for war — and a wakeup call. I. Sadly enough, the murder, apparently by Jews, of a Palestinian boy, 16 — it is apparently necessary to state — is ethically repugnant and politically stupid, both in the extreme.
