Dumb Question: If We Just Have a Ceasefire and Then Return to "Status Quo," Won't the Gazan Arab Hamas Terrorists Just Build More Tunnels?

Maybe I'm crazy, but it seems to me that if there aren't some very radical changes in Gaza, they will just resume their terrorist activities against us.  We know that the United Nations and all sorts of "peacekeeping forces" never do anything that would endanger themselves, like stopping terrorists from building missiles, underground bunkers, networks of tunnels etc.

Most countries that contribute forces are more sympathetic to the Arab terrorist than to Israel.

People of my generation and older will never forget how the United Nations peacekeeping forces fled the minute Nasser said that he wanted to destroy Israel in 1967.

Why would Israel want a ceasefire. It would just signify our weakness that we blinked first. Kerry is even claiming that Bibi requested it.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has asked for fresh US help in trying to broker a ceasefire in Gaza, top US diplomat John Kerry said Tuesday.
"Last night we talked, and the prime minister talked to me about an idea and a possibility of a ceasefire. He raised it with me, as he has consistently," Kerry said.
Netanyahu had said he "would embrace a ceasefire that permits Israel to protect itself against the tunnels and obviously not be disadvantaged for the great sacrifice they have made thus far." (Arutz 7)
Where's the truth and where's the logic? Why should we have to go thought this again and again? Each time we pay with more lives.

Of course they will build more tunnels. Lets also not forget that the "status quo" is constant missile barrages on the south of Israel, which now apparently includes Tel Aviv.

OK Hadassa, then why are we doing this?

There was a report on Israel's Channel 1 an hour ago, reported by the JPost that Israel and Hamas reached a ceasefire agreement. It has been scrubbed and just as well in the light of on-going Hamas fire.

When will Israel's leaders learn Hamas does not keep agreements and only uses timeouts to strengthen itself.

Naftali Bennett is right Israel must fight with the aim of achieving a decisive victory. If that offends Obama, too sad too bad. Hamas is as evil as Al Qaeda. It deserves to be annihilated.

The latest Hamas barrages have now reached Jerusalem.

Maybe the only way to wake up the PM is to have a Hamas rocket fall on his office.

So he will begin to understand the entire country is at risk if he keeps on dithering.

NormanF said...


To eliminate the tunnels threat. But if that's all 53 IDF soldiers have sacrificed their lives for, what's to prevent Hamas from rebuilding them as soon as Israel leaves Gaza?

Without destroying Hamas, blowing up the tunnels will only buy Israel time until the next round.

That's no way for a country to live.

Batya said...

Norman, we agree.
So I'm not so dumb?

Is that a trick question? Of course, they will continue with their terror and it will be even worse, chas v'sholom. They need to be completely eradicated. Evil cannot co-exist with good and these terrorists are totally evil.

Bibi is trusting his tremendous luck that eventually a missile will fall on the Temple Mount and destroy the mosques. But anyway, Hamas breaks every cease-fire. The latest word is that a number of ministers, against the opinion of the PM, are supporting targeted killing of the Hamas government. That would be a good start. There could be some nice competition in the next primary for Likud leader. If this goes on, some Likud voters might choose to vote for Bennett. Not that Bennett is a candidate for Mashiach, but a few degrees closer.

Batya said...

So no ceasefire until we eliminate their leadership.
Someone must ask Bennett if as PM he would be Center or Right.

Norman: Is that true that they're reaching J'lem?
