It seems clear that the terrorists in Gaza are trying to provoke a war with Israel by lobbing hundreds of rockets and missiles into the country.
They have now proven they have a delivery system to reach every population center in the Jewish state, which has continued shrinking at the hands of world opinion even as its enemies develop the means to finish Hitler’s work.
No one who is not trying to provoke a response fires hundreds of rockets as someone else.
So, why are the Arabs trying to provoke a war with a country that has proven they are superior to them in every way by essentially wiping the floor with them time and again?
Well, unless they are stupid or insane, either of which is entirely possible, it seems to me the obvious reason would be because they believe they have something to alter that reality.
So, is it possible that the Islamists in Iran, which are and have been the benefactors and sponsors of the Hamas terrorists (and Lebanon’s Hezbollah), have actually developed a nuclear weapon while the world was wringing its hands about making them stop?
Is it possible they are intentionally provoking a shooting war with a superior power because they seek an excuse to use such a weapon?
Aside from the initial horror of such a thing, clearly not enough people in enough places understand the ramifications this would create. It would not merely result in a bunch of dead Jews – something I suspect too few worldwide give a rat’s ass about – but I guarantee that Israel would not take such a strike, or even an attempted strike, lying down. They would certainly retaliate in kind, no doubt touching off a nuclear war of catastrophic proportions.
But, I think the end of the world may be the Islamists’ ultimate goal.
Unlike Judaism which advocates Tikkun Olam – repairing the world – the Islamists seem to advocate whatever the opposite of that would be.
They do, clearly celebrate death, and consider achieving it in the commission of mass murder to be an especially high honor.
Imagine the points they’d get from Allah for the death of the world.
