in response to reader comment: no return to occupation

To the extent that the circumstances in Gaza desperately need a different approach, to deliver the indigent population from suffocation under the current government, such a plan is untenable except to those who have a true vested interest, even considering the plight of those so suffering. But we must remember that the current government was voted in after Israel withdrew and theirs is the responsibility for the circumstances. Instead of directing the majority effort to accord an enactment of Charter clauses devoted to the destruction of Israel, were the government acting true to their responsibility of caring for their residents, Israel would have minimal need to enforce their border protection.

Israel cannot ignore Gaza; Hamas will not let them. Israel cannot count on the support of any outsiders for the fear that repercussions will come from the Muslim community anywhere in the world where they are vocal and dissident. Israel's previous presence in Gaza was considered 'occupation' only by those who have not remember history well enough to know that Gaza was an ancient part of the land promised to Abraham, and by Biblical precept, will be again.

Thus, 'reinstatement', while a thought process that fails for many reasons in the current environment, is one that should have been thought out more diligently before ceding Gaza to the 'Palestinian' Authority, as is mentioned in the Biblical book of Zephaniah. Israel was set to pay for that dearly; yet the world will pay more dearly for being an accomplice to something that should never have happened in the first place.

Now, in light of that, who in their right mentality in the Egyptian government is willing to take on Hamas? Only if the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood were allowed to interject their plan book might there be an Egyptian presence, but I would expect FM Lieberman would have even a dimmer view of that. Next?
