Lessons of Gaza will be Taught at the World's Expense

Reader comment on item: Lessons of the War in Gaza

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Aug 12, 2014 at 12:02

Lessons to be learned about Gaza are increasingly difficult for the uninitiated to understand; and the enemies of Israel prey upon those misunderstandings in any way they can to perpetuate the fallacy of their own existence. The Ishmaelite/Hagarene undertones of the conflicts currently facing Israel are the same as if Abraham's legacies were being decided today as they were decided when he was alive.

The promise from the Eternal Sovereign was to Isaac. There are no legitimate claims in this modern age to validate or legitimize any 'Palestinian' rights to the land; AND THE HAMAS LEADERSHIP KNOWS THIS. The 'Palestinian' cause is a tool; the lives of 'Palestinians' are chattel in this tragic quasi-war for dominion over the 'promised land.'

The concession of Gaza in 2005 was a predicated token of the mistaken belief that if the 'Palestinian Authority' were given a chance to govern on behalf of the disenfranchised 'refugees', then a life of peaceful coexistence with Israel might be given a chance. Were Gaza all that was required, were was the peace sent when 2006 show the true intentions of the enemies of Israel, as if there were any secrets of their intentions.

The reality is that there is no peace on any one's terms except the terms of the promise given to Abraham and his legacy. That is the main lesson to learn. Fail that, and the payment of judgment will fall as it too, was promised.
