The Israel-Hamas Conflict Outside the Temple Walls: Revelation 11

The Israel-Hamas Conflict: Truth and Reasonableness Lost

I am not as concerned about the rise of antisemitism as I am worried that Israel’s detractors in the West, particularly on the left, always find justification for Israel’s enemies’ actions.

When Hamas bombed Israel after the latter withdrew from Gaza in 2005, the argument was that Israel still controlled the air space. When Hamas attacked, again and again, the rationale that justified it was that Israel had imposed a blockade on Gaza. What was not sufficiently mentioned was that Hamas used the territory from which Israel withdrew to attack Israelis or that Hamas’ charter calls for Israel’s destruction. The argument about the blockade recently recurred even though Israel, in an agreement with Qatar, allowed the passage of merchandise and funds for hundreds of millions of dollars from Israel to Gaza.
