So...what's the solution?
I have been thinking long and hard about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the recent news that 64 Hamas officials were arrested. I think the solution is simply to engage in target assassinations with every Hamas/Fatah/PRC/Islamic Jihad member who plans terror. Period. Arresting them accomplishes zippo. These people will be out of jail in no time. Having trials accomplishes nothing. These people will claim it's a human right violation to even have a trial in "Infidel Israel." Meanwhile, open warfare in populated areas will lead to massive civilian death. So why not just let Mossad accomplish what it needs to accomplish? Why not just target assassinate the monsters who kill, maim, fire rockets at Israel, and engage in general unadulterated mayhem? Does it violate the Geneva Conventions? Sure. But guess what? The Palestinians have shat upon the Geneva Conventions so many times, the conventions might as well not even exist. There is no "convention" if only one side is upholding it. What do you think? I want to see if anyone can change my mind. I am willing and WANT TO listen to other solutions. Are there any other solutions???
