Peace in Israel

I've been following the conflict in Gaza via blogs such as I really can't see how any human being can lower themselves so far as to be sympathetic to Hamas. They deliberately place civilians in danger and provoke military responses, which they then use as propaganda against Israel. I am outraged by this behavior, and outraged that it has gone on for so long without strong condemnation from the UN and our media.

No one who is an apologist for, or who supports Hamas in any way, can lay claim to being for peace. The destruction of Israel does not equal 'peace'. There will be no peace in Israel, or anywhere else in the world, until Hamas and all Islamic death cults are defeated -- militarily and socially.

Thank you, Israel, for taking on this thankless task.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill - English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)
