Left Hopes for Cease-Fire as Israel Battles Extinction

The sound bites this week about the Israeli conflict show exactly what’s at stake. In a video clip released by the Middle East Media Research Institute, a unnamed Islamic cleric in Gaza giving a sermon on the Hamas television channel Al-Aqsa TV shared the ultimate goal of Hamas: total extermination of the Jews. “Our doctrine in fighting you [the Jews] is that we will totally exterminate you,” the cleric said. “We will not leave a single one of you alive, because you are alien usurpers of the land and eternal mercenaries.” Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will destroy the tunnels of Hamas, regardless of anything else. “I won’t agree to any proposal that will not enable the Israeli military to complete this important task for the sake of Israel’s security,” he said. And back in the states, the Democrat challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Alison Lundergan Grimes, told a Kentucky newspaper, “The Iron Dome has been a big reason why Israel has been able to withstand the terrorists that have tried to tunnel their way in.” Um, we don’t think that’s how the Iron Dome works, or that Netanyahu can declare “mission accomplished” just yet.
