As the Palestinian Islamic army of Hamas continues to rocket Israeli population centers, Israel's government has agreed to yet another truce with the Muslim terrorist group.
The current truce, of course, is not expected to last, if it will take effect at all. Just like all the other truces and understandings with Hamas, this one too, is simply intended to give Hamas a chance to smuggle in more Iranian long-range missiles and terror-training personnel.
At the same time, the IDF has evacuated troops from a major Southern army base out of fear of a Hamas attack. IDF generals seem to agree that Israel does not have a military solution to stop the rocket attacks completely. In other words, the Israeli Defense Forces admits that it cannot accomplish its mission of defending Israeli citizens. Not in Gaza, and not in Northern Israel for that matter.
As much as supporters of Israel do not want to hear that the IDF is largely powerless, that's the fact. The Israeli army, long a source of pride and expression of Jewish power, is actually incompetent and powerless when faced with guerrilla warfare by those who do not "play by the rules."
Some of us may presume that Israel's corrupt government is at fault for the IDF's failures, and that if not bound by Europe's Leftist rules of fair play, surely the IDF could prevail. Unfortunately, that is not true.
The IDF itself reflects the problems of Israeli society, like incompetence, laziness, fearfulness, and most of all -- a lack of Zionist values. Without believing in a cause, the IDF is nearly worthless. That's why Islamists around the world continually beat armies with far greater resources: The Islamists believe in their terrorist cause, while Western soldiers want to get home to watch their DVDs.
So, if we understand that Israel is basically unable to win a war against Hamas, there is no choice but to give them an independent state, with control over their own borders, taking into account that it will be yet another Iranian outpost, and that it's just a matter of time before it will stock Iranian nuclear weapons which can reach Tel Aviv and every other point in Israel. Scary? Sure, but this is actually no different than the current situation in Lebanon.
Some time ago, Israel has decided that it will tolerate potentially nuclear enemies on its borders. And even without nuclear weapons, the Muslim terrorists have proven that they can burn down chunks of Israel with simple Katyushas.
Next month, the UN security council will pass a resolution against Israel's blockade of Gaza, and from there, things won't go well for Israel. There might be sanctions, and other repercussions.
So, that's why I say, either revamp the IDF so it can destroy Hamas, or accept that Gaza will become an independent state.
