THE FUTILITY OF THE ISRAELI-GAZA CONFLICT
I’ve waited for a week or so to comment on the latest (and inevitable) Israeli-Arab conflict to see if anything different was going to happen compared to the last time Israel had to go after Hamas for firing rockets into Israel. Apparently, it’s going to be more of the same—a truce, brokered by Egypt (the hypocrite), and Israel always stopping short of actually rooting out Hamas and all its armaments. There are many complexities to explain this week, but the bottom line is that for the good of both Palestinian and Israeli civilians, Hamas has to be destroyed and Gaza has to be re-occupied—and not because Israel’s globalist puppet government is good or benevolent, but simply because, of the few alternatives available, that’s the only option that historically has given the innocent on both sides the chance to work and live normal lives without constant violence. It’s not real independence for the Palestinians, but as long as they have no power to elect peaceful leaders that’s the best thing they are going to get.

I will assume that Skousen has more "inside" sources of information than I. But, I am not sure how relevant that is, since I fully agree with him on the less than popular claims regarding "Israel’s globalist puppet government." That is a pretty good description. My only question is "Where are the orders originating exactly?" Perhaps Skousen has the answer, or at least a theory, regarding this.
I also believe that Skousen hits the mark with each of the other points he makes in this brief, with one exception.
Unless Skousen is suggesting that the election of Hamas was set up, rigged, or otherwise ..., which I would agree is certainly possible, I must then insist that the "Palestinian People" did freely choose Hamas in its last elections, knowing full well who they are.
Yes, as far as I know, Hamas does use some of its funds from Iran and elsewhere to build hospitals and midrassas (Muslim religious schools), and provides the people with just enough food, in order to have the strength to come out en masse to protests and move around enough to adjust for Hamas's needs for human shields.
However, the "Palestinian People" also are fully aware that Hamas is hellbent on Israel's destruction.
For those of you who believe in the myth that Fatah is "better" than Hamas, let us not forget Yassar Arafat's (Fatah) Palestinian Liberation Organization's [PLO] insignia (left). It included a map of his vision of "Palestine," which was not just Judea, Samaria, and Gaza, but all of Israel as well. The Golan Heights were not included, as he had the intention to turn this area over to Syria, once Israel had been wiped off of the map.
And what do you know? Here is Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas (Fatah), holding up yet another map of "Palestine." (below - right) Regardless of the source of this particular map, the flag and title at its top says it all.
The only real difference between Fatah and Hamas is that Hamas is the more patient of the two.
Now, back to Gaza, whether following their government due to ideology or "sheepledom," the residents of Gaza are most certainly culpable.
