By the time you read this, Israel might have started its anticipated ground operation in Gaza.
Since October 7, it has been a question of when, not if. Everyone knows Israel is in another existential war, one they have to win by obliterating Hamas. You can’t continue as a country unless you shatter the demons that inflicted such unspeakable horror on the populace. There is no other way.
The world has been on pins and needles, wondering what Israel has in store for Hamas. I believe the Israelis are so smart, they have “delayed” a full-scale war in order to let Hamas squirm.
Squirm they are. Like the Nazis, Hamas overreached—what an understatement! Bloodying Israel’s nose for years with the occasional rocket attack, or small-scale terror attack (with little accountability) gave Hamas the false sense of security that said, This is the time for a real attack.
It is the same mental delusion that the Arabs have had for 75 years. It’s the mental delusion that General Nasser had, Sadat, Assad, the mullahs.
They forget that Israel is undefeated.
Some little-known facts about this war:
- To date, a whopping 102 Hamas terrorists have been eliminated in Judea-Samaria. Those operatives, from places like Nablus and Jenin, are the same devils as those in Gaza. IDF counter-terrorism units are operating everywhere. I was struck this week by a comment from an IDF commander: “There is no place safe in Israel now.” That’s quite an admission. All the more reason this must be a full-victory proposition; leave no one to negotiate a ceasefire with.
- American troops are in Lebanon, operating against Iranian proxies like they haven’t since the early 80’s. As many as 2,000 Marines are expected in the area as soon as the USS Eisenhower arrives in the Gulf.
- While many have fretted about Israel’s slowness to launch a ground war, people that understand combat say that Israel is being deliberate for many reasons, among them a tightening dread among Hamas. So far from being incapable or indecisive, Israel is preparing in the best ways possible.
Meanwhile, the delusional demons in Gaza—the ones that take on children and elderly women—have no idea the fury that will soon meet them from men born for war. Saleh al-‘Arouri, deputy head of the Hamas political bureau, has used the same language used by idiot Arab spokesmen for generations: “We will burn the Zionist enemy with fire,” etc., etc. He claimed that an addition to being prepared for the IDF, Hamas could also count on “fighters” in the West Bank.
Fat chance. As I mentioned, Israel has already eliminated a huge number of them.
And this has been reported in the last couple days:
“Beginning on the second day of the war, October 8, 2023, while fighting continued inside Israeli territory against the operatives, Hamas’ military-terrorist wing, senior figures in the Association of Religious Sages in Palestine issued a fatwa calling for the killing of all Israeli soldiers and civilians. The fatwa, issued in the name of the religious sages of the entire Muslim nation, stated that the religious sages made it unequivocally clear that every soldier and every ‘Zionist settler’ could be killed wherever they were in all the Muslim countries, inside ‘Palestine’ and outside of it.”
This represents an escalation of almost unprecedented levels. A fatwa of course is a religious edict in Islam that allows a “true believer” to murder. All the global sickos protesting Israel’s self-defense haven’t a clue that to allow the issuers of the fatwa to live is to concede civilization to barbarians. It is untenable. It doesn’t square with reality.
Notice the lunacy in the following statement, and then realize that the Bible says God is going to do the exact opposite to the enemies of the Jews:
“Dr. Saleh al-Raqab, senior figure in the Association and former minister of endowments in the Hamas government, published an article called ‘Oh, Jihad fighters in Palestine,’ which read, ‘Allah, grant victory to the Jihad fighters in Palestine, direct their blows and aim the fire of their guns at the necks of the Jews, steady the feet of the warriors and bring their stabbing blade into [the Jews’] hearts. Allah, put them in the hands of your soldiers and allow them to kill the Jewish army, destroy the Jewish weapons, capture Jewish soldiers and destroy the Jews. Allah, paralyze their limbs and freeze the blood in their veins, inflict a cruel defeat on them. Allah is the greatest and victory is for Islam. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.’ In order to carry out their barbaric massacre in Israeli territory, the operatives of Hamas’ military-terrorist wing apparently drew inspiration and legitimization from publications issued by sources of Hamas-affiliated religious authorities.”
Now contrast that with the truth:
“For thus says the Lord: Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the tyrant shall be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your sons. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine. And all flesh shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” (Isaiah 49:25-26)
Jewish combat troops are about to enter Gaza. Their ancestors fought in Gaza.
In the past, present, and future, God fights for His People.
Hamas is violent, certainly.
But Violent Men are coming for them.
