Why Does Hamas Want War?

Reader comment on item: Why Does Hamas Want War?

Submitted by Lujack Skylark (United States), Aug 2, 2014 at 02:18

Hamas had originally planned to strike Israel on Rosh Hashannh 2014. Hamas was going to send a 1000 terrorists through those tunnels in Gaza leading into southern Israel stated an Israeli general on CNN. The general also stated Hezbollah could also have been in on the plot to open a second front on Israel's northern border.

Hamas wanted war because Hamas popularity in Gaza is going down and Hamas believed an attack upon Israel would cause an uprising in the West Bank. Also Israel had arrested Hamas members they had released in the Shalit prisoner release deal after those three Israeli boys were murdered.

Israel is fortunate Hamas did not wait to Rosh Hashannh to attack Israel for Israel has now found over thirty tunnels and uncovered the plot to capture and kill Israel civilians and Israeli troops actions resulted likely in saving hundreds of people's lives in southern Israel.

Now if Israel does not listen to the cries of the United Nations, the United States and the EU for a worthless ceasefire and Israel destroys Hamas, Israel will be able to have a short time of peace.

Iran surely is going to cause Israel problems on Israel's northern front giving its proxies Hezbollah and Assad the green light to attack Israel and Israel will be forced to destroy these enemies as well.
