ANALYSIS/OPINION:

To those who are offended by pictures of casualties in Gaza, I would remind you that the terrorist organization Hamas has set up armed camps, stored rockets and weapons amid civilians, and uses the media to provoke outcries from free-world nations in favor of its self-made, dire predicament.

I remind those who can remember World War II that we bombed Berlin, Hiroshima and Nagasaki with devastating results and huge civilian casualties, but in the long run we won. Israel must continue destroying the tunnels and for all intents and purposes destroy Hamas. The Palestinians must then reject Hamas’ government and choose a legitimate representative to negotiate a lasting, peaceful relationship of coexistence with Israel. It’s time for clear-thinking visionary statesmen from both sides to step up and do the right thing. I think it really is that simple.
