Israel vs. Hamas Tactical Protest

The Hamas tactical protest on the border with Israel is perpetrated in order to exhaust the IDF (Israel Defense Forces). Gazan civilians and Hamas operatives are to be killed for photo-ops. The aim of Hamas is to deface Israel’s good image and present the Jewish state as a murderer of civilians as well as get the world’s attention and funds.

For Hamas, dancing on the brink of chaos is a winning tactic.

As IDF soldiers, protecting the border, sought to prevent demonstrators from breaching the Israeli border fence, it is said that sixty Gazans were killed by IDF fire, with 24 of them Hamas terror operatives. The rest of the demonstrators are fools who have nothing else to do but endanger their lives for deception.

On May 14, 1947 Ben Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel, declared the Jewish State independence. A day later, on May 15th, and every year since, the Arabs mark what they see as the Nakba, or ‘catastrophe of the establishment of the Jewish state.

While Israelis were jubilant, on Monday, May 14, 2018, some Gazan family lives turned tragic, at no fault of Israel, but Hamas leadership[less] and the fools who follow them.

The hatred instilled in the Arabs by their corrupt, venomous leaders, who use Nazi type propaganda, is pathetically sad. This hatred is only growing, as life for the ordinary person in Gaza becomes more unbearable.

What would you do if an enraged mob tried to break your country’s international border fence and flood your country with people determined to kill you? Would you let them run you over or stop them by any possible means, including shooting them dead if the out of control stampede cannot be stopped any other way?

The IDF dropped leaflets in Gaza asking the Gazan population not to listen to their leaders because if they do they put their life on the line and at risk. But thousands of them did not listen. For far too many Gazans, a monetary reward of few hundred dollars, paid by Iran, is stronger than his or her life. The Hamas leaders tell their people, “go get shot, you will be remunerated. Your life means nothing to us and you get shot – you are wounded or dead. This is an inexpensive PR photo-op for us.”

Gaza is the example of what would happen if the ‘two-state-solution’ came to fruition, as so many still promote this dangerously moronic idea. In that case, there would be no border fence to protect the Israelis from the Arab mob. Just as happened in 1948, when the Jordanian Legions swarmed Jerusalem, which they managed to hold onto at the end of Israel War of Independence. The Jordanians made sure not one Jew will be dwelling in the city under their rule. Jews, whose families lived in Jerusalem for centuries were murdered or expelled and all Jewish houses of prayer and cemeteries were destroyed and/or desecrated.

There are no Jews living in Gaza; Gaza is Judenrien – free of Jews. There is no Israeli occupation there, but Hamas occupation. By now this prime property strip, on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, with a white sandy beach, should have been an astonishing Middle East version of Hong Kong. With no ongoing wars, Israel would have helped it to happen. But the Islamo-Nazi Arabs want nothing else but to kill the Jews and destroy their amazing country.

The Hamas Strategy

Who can put the foot on the pedal?

As of this writing, the committee organizing the ongoing Gazan protests, that attempt to break through the border fence with Israel, has called for a continuation of the weekly demonstrations. Now their next major focus is June 5 – called Naksa Day, meaning “day of the setback,” the date when the Arabs mark their defeat in the 1967 Six Day War.

Israel, knowing what Hamas is all about and its warfare routine, figured out that for now Hamas is in no hurry to escalate the situation, to fire rockets at Israel. Apparently, in 2018 Hamas has learned to use a vocabulary that the international media can buy and sell. We see them using the phrases “nonviolent resistance,” “popular struggle,” etc. All of these hit the stomach of the triple standard toward Israel and ignorant media.

As long as ‘nonviolent’ mass gatherings of foolish Arab mobs show willingness to rush toward the border fence and sacrifice their lives, Hamas is uninterested in being dragged into all-out war with the IDF. It appears that Hamas currently believes that open war may do it more harm than good. In other words, the group does not want to risk losing control of their territory or making its leaders assassination targets, as the IDF warned the group already.

Hamas is happy to sacrifice the lives of civilians, because that is more damaging to Israel.

It is Hamas that controls the entire show in Gaza. They could, if they want, restrain not just the demonstrators but also Gaza’s other armed groups.

For now, the chaotic demonstrations, with rather low human toll, since the IDF has been using snipers to control the mob not tanks or war planes, have netted Hamas quite a few achievements:

1/ They were brought to the fore of Arabs’ internal political discourse, while

2/ Refocusing the attention of the international community on Gaza.

3/ And as always, Israel is bearing the brunt of the blame for the deaths.

The expected United Nations condemnation was already passed in the hall of this anti-Israel body and the barking Chihuahua media did not stop barking on behalf of Hamas, meaning on behalf of and for terror against Israel. Other than from Washington D.C, there was very little condemnation of Hamas from anyone.

The Gazans are fulfilling Golda Meir’s saying: “We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”

In that context, Gazan children and youth are paying the price of Hamas’ vile hate for Israel. Gazan youths have been rushed, in droves, to the border-fence.

Gaza youth - go to school, don't play war games.
Gaza youth – go to school, don’t play war games

One may ask: How is it that this mob does not fear for its life? How come so many are willing to die in a futile assault on the security fence Israel erected to separate itself from the Gaza terror enclave and to stop the infiltration by illegals?

The only thought that comes to mind, as a reply to the question, is twofold:

From birth, children in both Gaza and the West Bank are taught to hate Jews and that martyrs are heroes. This means young Gazans desire to be seen as heroes by their society that calls for meaningless martyrdom. They also have the feeling that they have nothing to lose if they die.

Pairing despair and a desire to stand out is a strong motivator for the recruitment of so many Gazans to march and protest violently. With more than 40% unemployment in the Strip, the possibility of pay for getting hurt at the border fence gives them an incentive to march. The totalitarian Hamas leaders have trained the youth to obey their commands.

Demonstrator participation may diminish but escalation to an outright conflict may take place

It is difficult to see how Hamas’s new tactic of controlled rallies can last much longer.

If Hamas does not achieve actual results from these run-the-border demonstrations, there may be a natural decline in the motivation of the Gazan populace to risk their lives at the border. At some point Hamas may revert to its basic warring instincts, firing rockets or even attempting to rile the Palestinian Authority population to carry out attacks in their territory, in Judea and Samaria. This, in a twisted way, would lower the risk of an open conflict in Gaza, while winning points with the Arab public who is brainwashed to demand revenge and seek the return to where exactly?

After all, what is this all about?

If any Arab has a problem with Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, he or she needs to take up the issue with G-D, Who gave the land to His people, the Israelite-Jews. But it appears that these Arabs have a murderous relationship with their type God. Their God is cruel and evil, and likes them to go kill their own and others.

With the USA finally taking the rightful step to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Israel received recognition of the permanency it so badly needed, to continue to grow and thrive. It made Israel invincible.

This spectacle at the border fence with Israel is simply Arabs self-inflicting catastrophe.

The riots and anarchy on Israel’s border with Gaza are not because the Gazans are angry Jerusalem received the rightful recognition as the capital of Israel. Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since King David’s time, for some 3,500 years.

Hamas, the rulers of Gaza, have a charter that calls for the annihilation of Israel by any means possible. Using its civilians, children, youths, women and men, to try breaking through the border fence is just one way to try to achieve its goal.

The problem is that on the two sides of the border fence that separates Gaza from Israel, there are two different type of people. On the Gaza side, there are people who want to murder and kill and could care less about being killed. On Israel’s side, there are people who want to live and defend themselves from being killed. It is a war of evil – Hamas and its cronies – against good – Israel.

Much of the world blaming and condemning Israel is de-facto proof that it sides with terror. The corrupted United Nations sides with the Hamas goal to destroy Israel. Those who side with Hamas are complicit in this chaotic state of affairs at the border fence that separates squalid Gaza from enchanting Israel. It is not Israel but Hamas and its supporters who are complicit in the loss of Gazan life.

Thankfully, there are people not fooled by Hamas’ violent tactics.

We, the people who know right from wrong, will not let Hamas’ goal happen. NEVER!
