The Egyptians had been urging Mossad-controlled Hamas to tone down the border protests, but instead Hamas is pledging to continue the border protests for as long as it takes to end the 10-year long Israeli economic blockade.
The Israeli military have already stated very clearly that the blockade will not end, because everyone understands that food, fuel, weapons and freedom fighters will pour into Gaza if that happens.
So it looks like the choice will come down to living with the border protests or violently invading Gaza to isolate the 2 million Palestinians that live in the largest open air concentration prison death camp in the world.
On Friday, 10,000 Hamas protesters showed up at the border fence, and 130 of them got shot during the violence that erupted. The demonstrators threw burning tires and explosives @ the IDF troops and tanks stationed at the other side of the fence.
On Wednesday, a rocket that was fired from Gaza obliterated a home in southern Israel, and another rocket landed not too far from Tel Aviv. The Jewish people have been greatly outraged by these attacks, and their patience has worn very thin.
In response to those two attacks, the IDF hit targets in Gaza with air strikes. Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman is now saying that he believes that war between Israel and Gaza is “inevitable”.
Israel made a major move in that direction by massing tanks along the Gaza border.
The only thing that could permanently stop the protests is a full-blown Israeli military invasion of Gaza with the intention of completely eliminating Hamas? But that would be an exceedingly bloody mission, and it could potentially spark a much broader Middle East war.
Gaza is not going to put up with all of this violence for much longer, but there is one huge problem. If Israel invades Gaza at this point, they will be considered to be the “aggressor” by most of the rest of the world.
This could greatly galvanize Israel’s other enemies, and it could very easily spark a broader conflict. A major war in the Middle East would go a long way toward destabilizing the entire globe.
Israel would love to see it’s Arab neighbors wiped off the map, and if the right opportunity arose the Arab’s would gladly join forces in an all-out attempt to defeat Israel once and for all.
The Trump administration would most certainly intervene militarily on the side of Israel, and that could potentially be the start of World War 3.
Sine the start of the Arab Spring, millions of Muslims have been murdered by NATO military invasions and attacks, igniting a possible larger counter offense against the aggressors sometime soon?
