Israel and Gaza
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:

It is important to understand the real reasons behind the conflict that erupted between Israel and the Palestinians.

The eviction of 7 families from their East Jerusalem homes, despite what many are claiming, is not a reason for the conflict. The posturing for position by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad within the Palestinian community is the reason for the eruption of this conflict.

Israel mishandled the housing riots. They should have known better and that mismanagement poured proverbial fuel on the flames.

The riots served to force Hamas’ hand. Hamas wanted to make themselves relevant to Palestinians – more relevant than Fatah. And so they launched 1,800 rockets into Israel within 48 hours.

Israel hit back. They hit 750 targets and 160 rocket launchers. Within 18 minutes
Israel launched 170 smart bombs aimed at terrorists and at terror facilities – especially missile launchers and weapons depots and command and control centers. They were all surgical strikes.

The IDF claims to have successfully targeted 60 Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist leaders. Hamas says that the Israeli strikes have killed 100 people. Israel will continue to attack Hamas and PIJ leaders.

Israel’s objective it to eliminate both the rockets and Hamas and PIJ leadership.
Israel’s objective is to keep Israelis safe.
