My Two Cents | The left is wrong on Gaza

My friends on the far left are wrong, plain wrong, on the recent Israel-Gaza flareup.
Israel, bottom line, has a right to defend itself. And as long as Hamas is using Gaza as cover for its aggressive activities, Israel has a right to pre-emptively defend itself.

It bothers me more than a little bit that the far left is taking up the cause of Hamas in this one.

We cannot allow Hamas to goad Israel into a fight that we then shout them the Israelis down from.

You ask me, and the only peace that can ring eternally in the Middle East has to include a strong Israel.

Anything less than that is a threat to the West and a threat to the United States long term.
