Just give them what they want and they'll never pull this stunt again. Oh, wait.
You do realize, that unlike Fatah in the West Bank, Hamas' stated goal is the complete destruction of Israel and the murder of every Jew in Palestine. But don't think I support Israel unconditionally. I do not and wish we could collectively knock some sense into Israel and the Palestinians alike. Plenty of blame to go around but last weekend was so far beyond the pale that Israel has no other viable alternative.
don't invade and Hamas wins this war and grows.
what's behind door number 3?
well, I suppose you could just bomb the hell out of the 140 sq miles, then invade and kill anything left.
That's not a real alternative.
So what is the alternative?
