Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
... and, if I understand Aluf Benn correctly, he wants to achieve that by hermitically sealing the borders of that state. Yeah, well, THAT'LL work a treat, just like it did in Gaz....oh, yeah, sorry.... Benn, Bibi: the way you stop rockets getting into a future "Palestine" is the same way that Ben Gurion stopped weapons getting into the newly-minted state of Israel i.e. by allowing a strong-willed government to assert the central authority of the state. In short: not by making the West Bank and uber-prison - i.e. a gigantic Gaza Strip - but by making Palestine into an Arab version of Israel. Do THAT and there simply won't be any rockets being smuggled into Palestine, because the Palestinian govt won't allow it.
