As I take a break from packing for a work trip I’ll be on next week, I’ve been reading tons of blog posts around the Internet about this latest Israeli-Palestinian war. Then I saw this comment by our own Jason Steck. The following is the portion that piqued my interest:
If the Palestinians had elected a government that was open to peace with Israel in ANY form, you might have a legitimate point. But they didn’t. They elected a government that openly declares its desire and intention to commit genocide. There can be no compromise with that.
I have no misconceptions on the goals of Hamas. They wish to see the State of Israel utterly destroyed, and would do it today if they could. This is simply a fact. However, I do have some questions.
