I Support The Two State Sollution

I support the two state sollution.... between Hamas and Fatah, which will result in Hamastan in Gaza and Fatah Land in the West Bank. What can I say about what's going in Gaza right now? Umm.... I told you so. No, that just doesn't seem right. Look, we all knew this was going to happen. It's been happening for the better part of a couple of years now. This is culmination of years of hard work by both Hamas and Fatah. Hey, spending millions earmarked for food and medicine on weapons is hard work. You have to really sweat to convince the world that the next million will go to the people. OK, they really didn't have to do much to convince the world to give them more blood money. I mean, Norway must be feeling pretty good about themselves about how their $10 million donation has helped Hamas' cause. I'm sure Norway is pretty smug about what they've done.

Here's the question of the hour for me. Do I feel sorry for the Palestinian Gazans? How can I not feel sorry for them. The ones that want no part of this blood feud are getting on TV, at their own peril, and practically BEGGING for Israel to come back in and restore the order through "occupation". Of course, if Israel were to go in, they'd be screaming bloody murder about the occupation, but that's besides the point. Their very utterances could get them killed for collaboration, so, yes, I feel a bit sorry for them. On the other hand, I believe and Judaism teaches us the concept of personal responsibility. You have to be held accountable for your actions and choices. The Palestinians made their choice when they went to the ballot boxes in 2006 and voted Hamas into power. You can't tell me with a straight face that the Palestinian people didn't honestly know what was going to happen, what the consequences of their actions would be, when they voted Hamas into power.

I tell this to the world. Those of you in Europe and on the Left who screamed that the world MUST recognize the Hamas government, regardless of its terrorist status, becuase they were democratically elected and now scream that the world must go in and stop what Hamas is doing can NOT have it both ways. The Palestinians people are now reaping what they sew. I hate to say this because it sound so mean, but it's nothing less than the truth. The Palestinians made their bed, now let them sleep in its blood soaked sheets.

I must also add to this. The West has contributed to this event. They enabled the Palestinians' dependency by making no solid demands on the Palestinians to change their ways. They threw money at the Palestinians and created the very evil of what a welfare state creates instead of supporting and forcing the Palestinians to create a self sufficient economy and society. Whenever the Palestinians committed terrorist attacks against Israel, or the Palestinian government broke its part of peace deals, or never did its part in the first place, the West NEVER once held the Palestinians accountable. They have always justified and excused the poor stupid Palestinians as basically children who don't know any better while, at the same time, demanding more and more of Israel and holding Israel accountable for the actions of the Palestinians. They also threw millions and millions of dollars at the Palestinians knowing full thqat the money was going to buy weapons and munitions instead of to food, medicine, and education. They threw it at them because the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the West's foreign policy jewel. It is the West's guilt-be-gone from the fact that much worse atrocities and conflicts are going on in the world. Thousands and thousands of people are getting raped, murdered, and mamed in Darfur every day, but the UN hasn't stood up yet to call for an international force to go in and save these people. No, the West couldn't give one good damn about what happens to the Palestinians. They just like to continuously trump up the problem, so they can feel like they're doing a bit of good in the world.

Unfortunately for the Palestinians, the West can no longer justify or legitimize their support for the Palestinians government. They can no longer make excuses for the atrocities that the Palestinian terrorists are committing. When it was against the Israelis, the West could scream and justify it because of the "occupation", but when the Palestinians are killing eachother, there's really nothing you can say, and there's really no realistic way to blame it on Israel. The West has also run out of patience with the Palestinians. Then, there's the last and most important point of all: WHEN IT COMES TO ARAB ON ARAB VIOLENCE, THE WORLD JUST DOESN'T CARE.

I for one am glad that this is happening. Now, all the charades stop. If Hamas declares an Islamic state in Gaza, Israel must do its part by treating Gaza like a state. I know I said this when the Disengagement occurred, but there really are no excuses now. There is no Fatah left in Gaza. They are being summarily executed in the streets, and Abbas has fled to the West Bank. Israel can no longer say that they will stop Gazan violence against Israel by talking to the Fatah "moderates". No, if Hamas declares a state and continues its rocket attacks on Israel, she will have every right to carpet bomb the Strip to hell. Like taking personal responsibilities for your actions, you can't have it both ways here. You want to be a state, fine, I'll treat you like a state. You can't declare yourself a state, commit crimes against another state, and then run to the defense of the West when that other country makes you pay dearly for your actions.

As the immortal saying goes, "The time for talking is through."

I'm sure there is a way to blame this on the Jews.

Carpet bomb Gaza?

Do you know the kind of genocide that will cause? Gaza's intensely populated.

Tony, genocide? Excuse me. Is that what you label what the Allied forces did to Germany during WWII? Do you even know what the rules of war are?

Two points to mention on the elections. One is that Hamas got only 44% of the total vote, and slipped by because of divisions within Fatah. The other is that most Hamas voters were either voting as a protest without expecting them to actually win (JPost covered that angle best at the time) and more commonly were voting against corruption that in the aid-dependent Palestinian economy was costing them dearly. I remember one poignant account of a man whose daughter needed a liver transplant, but the money to pay for it was sitting in some Fatah member's Swiss bank account. I obviously have major issues with Hamas, the charter for which makes interesting reading with its assault on Rotary Clubs, but I have trouble judging people who voted as the man above did.

brian, I'm sorry, but I very much disagree with your assessment of why Gazans voted Hamas into power. Poll after poll shows that the majority of Gazans agree with Hamas' aim to destroy Israel and end the "real occupation". So, the constant cry that the only reason that Hamas was voted into power was because of their calls to end Fatah corruption is an absolute fallacy. Regardless, even if that was part of the reason, the people of Gaza knew what they would be getting by voting Hamas into power: an Islamic fundamentalist group dedicated to creating an Islamic state on all Israeli land. To think that the Palestinian people weren't aware that voting in Hamas would not cause major problem such as exists now is to use the leftist rhetoric that Arabs are idiotic people who can't see past the end of their nose, so the West must take care of them and make excuses when them make violent cries. The Palestinians knew what they were getting themselves into with their vote.

You might be right about Gaza - my data was based on the WB + Gaza.

Yeah, I was just talking about Gaza. The West Bank is a whole different ball of wax.

The time for talking ended long ago; it's too bad our neutered gov't can't see that.

I think you're right about the bombing, though.
