“’My leadership will overthrow the Hamas rule in Gaza’” Likud politician Binyamin Netanyahu promised Israel if elected head of state, per Jerusalem Post.

Netanyahu is convinced that Hamas cannot be bargained with, diplomatically engaged or talked out. He believes that Hamas, the murder machine, knows only one language. It is force.

Netanyahu promises to force Hamas into wipeout, just as Hamas promises Islamics the wipeout of Israel.

Netanyahu says he’ll up the score on Hamas by getting first dibs at the wipeout. Israel will remain intact. Hamas will be obliterated.

“’A government under my leadership will overthrow the Hamas rule in Gaza and bring about a cessation of rocket fire,’ Netanyahu emphasized during a tour of Ashkelon.”

Netanyahu characterizes what has been going on in Israeli leadership as “the policy of blindness.” He states emphatically that it is he who sees clearly. His vision will act so as to rid Israel of the Hamas rocket fire bloodletting.

Israeli Defense Minister and Labor Leader Ehud Barak concurs with Netanyahu.

Barak told media that Hamas has been “hit very hard and is picking up the pieces. . .but rocket fire is a fact and we cannot ignore facts.”

Both Barak and Netanyahu are committed to acting on facts. The bald fact related to Hamas is that Hamas honors nothing but power. Hamas exhibits that base every day and night with the thrust of rocket blasts.

Consequently, Israel must get on that same frequency—overpowering Hamas’ power.
