The rockets fired by Hamas from Gaza were the first of an orchestrated attack on Israel sponsored by Iran. The latest rocket attacks on Israel by Hezbollah in Lebanon appear to be part of the plan.

This is reminiscent of 1948, when neighboring Arab countries and the Palestinians attacked Israel. Rather than allowing these incitement activities to continue, the U.S. should make it clear that they support and will defend Israel against this aggression. The United Nations is both biased and useless, so the U.S. must step up. Hamas and Hezbollah, supported by Iran, are launching attacks to kill and injure civilians. Israel is defending its citizens and trying to minimize the deaths of Gaza residents.

Why are we making deals with Iran by aiding their finances while they continue their worldwide terrorism activities and plans to destroy Israel? A strong message by the U.S. against the rocket attacks from Gaza and Lebanon could save many innocent Palestinian and Israeli lives.
