The Herald reports that Israeli ground forces have entered Gaza. This is a sad day, after they voluntarily left it some years ago.
Whether Israel will be sucessful with its aims to cripple Hamas remain to be seen.
While I am a defender of Israel’s right to respond to the thousands of rocket attacks Hamas launches at Israel, it doesn’t mean I agree with every aspect of their response.
Will this make things worse in the long run? Sadly it may. The status quo of “Let Hamas keep firing rockets without a response” seems a pretty bad strategy also. This is the problem in the Middle East – there are no good options, just a series of bad to very bad options.Tags: Hamas, Israel, Middle East
