Don’t Look Away
Israel’s war in Gaza is facing a non-retractable dilemma as it weighs the next phase of its war in Gaza: At stake is the fate of at least 200 hostages held by Hamas. How will risks play out for Israel as it gets bogged down in indirect negotiations with a group it has vowed to crush, questions the WSJ.
Dying Pompous Progressive Pieties
Andy Kessler writes of the knee-jerk cheerleading of terrorist acts.
That, along with the bankruptcy of many antidemocratic and anticapitalist beliefs, is why a progressive schism is growing. Long-held views are being questioned. Pompous progressive pieties are dying. It’s about time. This is how ideologies land on the ash heap of history.
The Left’s Wrong Side of the Issue:
- Killing babies on demand
- Forcing citizens to take an experimental Covid vaccine (not actually a vaccine)\
- Taxing the bejesus of anyone generating wealth and contributing to economic growth
- Perverted sexualized gender ideology
- Unvetted illegal immigrants flow into our southern border
- Disarming citizens
Carpe Diem in American Greatness writes:
… it takes a special kind of evil to defend the mass slaughter of innocent Israelis who were celebrating Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah—marking the end of the annual reading of the Torah.
…last week, we have now learned that the Left has no problem with Jewish grandparents and women being raped and tortured in their own homes. The Left has no issue with babies being decapitated and kidnapped from their family. The Left has no problem with parents being butchered in front of their children, and they have no issue at all with mentally ill students on our college campuses screaming their support for savage barbaric pieces of human scum.
Does the Left Care
More Israelis will be butchered if Hamas isn’t taken out.
Israel correctly believes that it must completely eradicate those barbaric Hamas monsters who are capable of the worst kind of human indecency, and who wish to wipe Israel off the map.
Palestinians should have thought twice about surrendering their government to terrorists who dig up water pipes to turn them into Hamas rockets point at Israel, continues Carpe Diem. Gaza is now facing the consequences of rejecting every possible peace deal that Israel has offered them over the years.
Maybe they should have thought about telling Palestinians to remain in Gaza even as the IDF warned them to get the hell out of there.
