For years the chant in Arab countries, while waving angry fists in the air and firing AK-47s, has been to drive Israel into the sea.
Once again, the Arab betting pool is wrong. Looking more like dead wrong.
After imitating tunnel rats to dig 300 meters all the mad jihadis did was kill two Israeli soldiers and kidnap another who is gravely wounded. Hamas has tried to hold this wounded Corporal as a hostage to secure the release of some thugs. To put further pressure on Israel they have kidnapped other Israelis.
The Israeli Defense Force has given Hamas Israel's answer. To Asad of Syria, stop sheltering the leader of Hamas. To the jihadi thugs in Gaza the answer has even been more brutal. Two-thirds of Gaza is now without power, two key bridges are down, and Israeli tanks are now moving into northern Gaza.
So it is not the Israelis being driven into the sea, but Hamas and its supporters.
Oh dear, the teenager that was kidnapped in the West Bank has been executed by his jihadi torturers. Fox News is saying he was burned alive. They are also reporting nine of the Hamas command structure have been captured. Israel, do not go soft now and negotiate; drive these monsters into the sea so no honorable human being has to ever see them again.
The ten month experiment of giving the Palestinians their own country is at an end. It is a complete failure as the Palestinians have proven incapable of governing themselves or controlling the radical elements in their midst.
