End madness

First published in Letters

IN REPLY to Ray Davies’ letter in the Argus of 11th July, could I say that he ought to get some of his facts right. Hamas has said and always will say that they are out to destroy Israel completely. They (Hamas) put children and people in buildings deliberately to attract attacks from Jewish forces by placing rocket launchers on the rooftops of these buildings and then fire rockets into Israel. Who started this current conflict in Israel? Hamas did by kidnapping and then murdering those three young Jewish boys going home from college. One way to stop this madness is for all the European governments, including ours, to call into question what our aid money to Gaza is being spent on? It is not going to those in need, it is going to buy arms for Hamas and the like to destroy Israel which is a legitimate nation under the United Nations charter of 1947. The simplest of answers is for Hamas and the like to stop hating Israel and to start to love their own people more than the hatred that they show to the Jewish people.

The Israels sought refuge in Palestine, then with American Dollar proceed to make the Palestinian's refugees in their own country.

If I was Palestinian, I'd be rather cheesed off. Doesn't help that the media always portray the conflict in such a way that implies Israel are the innocent party.

Until 1948 there were NO Israelis,

Thanks to the Internationally agreed Balfour declaration which proposed a Jewish homeland \based on the historic lines which the Jews had always claimed, and to hopefully put a stop to the constant pogroms Jews were subjected to in almost all countries where they had communities.
It may have been somewhat naive of the UN to think the new Jewish state, accepted as Israel, would be a peaceful neighbour to those it displaced, and sent packing, but at the time it was perceived as the best possible option, which gave Israel a foot hold on it ancient stamping grounds. Not that the Palestinians had any more rights to the land anyway, it had been fought over for centuries between Jews and Arabs, long periods of peaceful co existence only needed a slight argument for a war to ensue, a short battle or two and back to another long period of peace and co existence.

What upset the apple cart more than the actual creation of Israel was the rise of Opec, which gave a chance for the Islamic fundamentalists to chance their arm and arms in attempting to destroy Israel, they along with their Egyptian neighbours got well and truly trounced, and the mighty Jewish Lobby in both America and Europe made sure such an attack could not happen again. What is now underway is a try at wearing the Israeli's down by constantly annoying it with little more than schoolyard bullying, but doing it with a catapult from the shelter of the bikeshed.

That is why the west sustains support for Israel, and if the stupid Arabs
were to rationalise this, they too would become once again peaceful and stable. But as long as their idiot brigades are tolerated by their populations we will forever get the likes of Hamas and the others like this new phenomena ISIS that seem to think all it has to do, is terrorise an area, and that area will become a initialising focus point for a worldwide Islamic caliphate.

I can see Israel taking any and all appropriate action necessary to ensure it's recognised borders are maintained, secure and inviolate,

If it's supporters such as the UK, France, Germany and especially the USA pull away from that support, the potential for an all out war in the middle east will rise dramatically. I know who the winner will be, and it will not be Islam.
