Hamas vs Israel

      1. You don’t have to be a Christian to see that possibility. Some gunfire there already. With all the focus in the south, it’s prime time for an incursion in the north.

  1. One of the best explanations of what is going on and what led up to it. So glad he’s not afraid to call out Netanyahu for his contribution to this mess. Worst Israeli prime minister ever. He’s going to end up ruining his country for a personal power grab.

  2. Totally agree with Friedman and you. And behind the whole mess the seminal motivation of Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran is religious hatred and lust for religious power. I find it interesting to consider that our founders included the separation of church and state, even while appealing to “God” in their public statements. Religion may in the end be the undoing of democracy. It is a tool for both good and evil. Swaggart, Jim & Tammy, Trump, are the tip of the iceberg.

    1. Religion is certainly a major factor, especially in the Middle East. But I see Israel/Hamas as being more a fight for land. Palestine wants to survive/exist. Israel is busily expanding into land that doesn’t belong to it while also oppressing Gaza. I think only a two-state solution is viable, provided both nations will agree to and respect a border. Doesn’t seem likely, does it?

... and that's my two cents
