"Have they tried dropping to their knees and orally pleasuring Hamas instead?"

As a matter of fact, they have tried that!

For years, Netanyahu propped up Hamas. Now it's blown up in our faces
www.timesofisrael.com

"For years, the various governments led by Benjamin Netanyahu took an approach that divided power between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank " bringing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to his knees while making moves that propped up the Hamas terror group.

"The idea was to prevent Abbas " or anyone else in the Palestinian Authority's West Bank government " from advancing toward the establishment of a Palestinian state.

"Thus, amid this bid to impair Abbas, Hamas was upgraded from a mere terror group to an organization with which Israel held indirect negotiations via Egypt, and one that was allowed to receive infusions of cash from abroad."

Who would have thought that the unwavering support for a tiny, manufactured terrorist entity half a world away would lead to the eventual downfall of the most powerful nation in the world?

As the old cliche goes: God works in mysterious (and not-so-mysterious) ways.

Just as after WWII. Hunt down the Nazis around the world. No mercy. Never give up. This hatred must be exterminated from the human race.

"This hatred must be exterminated from the human race."

It is called the "banality of evil" and Israel has been a major source of it for generations- occupiers and those who spend their entire lives dehumanizing others generally are. I remember back in 2014, nearly a decade prior to the Hamas attack that so many people have been convinced changed everything, ordinary Israelis were hosting parties on the hilltops to watch the bombing of Gaza in the valleys below. Perhaps some of the Palestinian children those Israelis eagerly awaited to die survived and became some of those Hamas members who broke out to attack them on October 7th. But blame the hatred of the oppressed for its oppressor on the oppressed if you wish. It won't change the truth:

Well, in some instances I may (gasp) agree with your alias on this.

But do be more specific so I can determine the level of my disagreement on a specific point.

My biggest Beef is home demolitions,and land theft by settlers with violence.

All implicitly condoned by the Israeli State. If not codified by law.

It's obvious ongoing human rights violations like these that lead to "Wild Dogs" crawling under the fence and killing without much mercy.

Israel has created their own hell on earth, Hamas inflicted a fraction of this and now the IDF seeks opened ended ongoing collective mass punishment on an entire civilian population based on their ethnicity.

It's really Sick, dude.

That will piss off nobody except for Pakistan. And Pakistan doesn't have any Hamas leaders.

The other problem is, Indian govt assassins are sucky and keep getting caught. Their only successful job was against Canada which is even more sucky than the Indians.

Since the U.S. has no skin in this game I hope to God that Israel isn't depending on U.S. Intelligence for help.

Personally, I think that all aid to Israel should cease immediately. What they've done to the innocent population of Gaza is an overkill, in violation of international rules of engagement. DON'T TARGET CIVILIANS!

Agreed. We should always be humanitarians first and soldiers second. It's just too bad we don't live in that universe though. We took a wrong turn somewhere along the way and we need to get back to the garden.

So far, the Israeli government has demonstrated considerable prowess in two areas: shooting off its mouth and waging war against civilians.

Not sure why they are waiting.

I'm rather wondering why the 4 billionaires in Qatar, and their many millionaire underlings, who run Hamas are still breathing.

Maybe they have something on Nuttyahoo, because Mossad isn't usually this patient.

I feel for the Palestinians, but Hamas no so much.

And Israel has been just as bad for decades.

"Agreed. We should always be humanitarians first and soldiers second."

If you choose to be a humanitarian first, the best course of action is not to fight at all.

The US employs a very specific and refined methodology for reducing collateral damage, but you can't eliminate it. Especially when the adversary is intentionally hiding amongst the civilian population. That in and of itself is a war crime.

Israel Plans to Kill Hamas Leaders Around the World After War

An important and necessary step but Israel has to know that what goes around comes around. While Israel may focus on Hamas leaders, a terrorist organization like Hamas will not constrain their "assassinations" to foreign based Israeli government leaders. Every Israeli and Israeli supporter will have a target on their backs.

That's where they should have started.

Exactly! That they didn't start there reveals part of Israel's strategic objectives i.e. remove Palestinians from Gaza and eventually the West Bank.

Just translate the word "Hamas" to the word "Palestinian" and things make more sense, as Israel is clearly going to ethnic cleanse what was formerly the country of Palestine, until there are only a few Palestinian Arabs living on reservations, as our Native Americas live on reservations, though of course they get to vote. Apartheid is all the conflict is about, since Gaza and the West Bank are prison colonies.

I don't think they're necessarily stupid. Israel has sought to normalize relations with many of the Arab states that host HAMAS and other terrorist leaders. Of course, these states would like to normalize those relations as well, but the cost of that may well be protecting the terrorist as many are admired in the region.

What happens to relationships between Israel and the Gulf States if Israel starts smoking terrorist leaders in Doha and Dubai?
