Our leaders are going to “review a number of possible cease solutions”? There should only be ONE cease fire solution and IT SHOULD BE NOTHING SHORT OF
THE UNILATERAL AND UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER OF HAMAS ON LIVE TELEVISION.
Anything less than that, and every enemy of Israel will prick their ears in anticipation of attacking us.
Look, we will never be the media’s darling, ever. We are not “good little xtians,” we are not “professional arab victims,” and we are not “poor african people.” We are Jews. The only time the world loves us is when we are victims of a holocaust, we have intermarried with them and forgotten who we are, or when we exist in some animated Bible story that shows how their god-on-a-stick was a Jew. They don’t like Jews with guns who defend their land, they don’t like Jews who are successful, and they don’t like Jews who demand justice.
Forget approval and look for fear. This is the best way, the only way, that Jews get peace from our arab brothers—when they fear us. Then they will be nice because they respect us.
As for the Europeans and the Americans and the rest of the arab world, who cares? They hate us any way. Why care if they hate us a bit more? Being hated is liberating! We shouldn’t’ feel the need to impress people who will never be impressed by anything short of our dramatic and painful demise. Just act as we see fit an that’s it.
Let’s pummel the shit out of Hamas until they come crawling and bloody to our feet, then make them kiss our feet before we shoot them dead.
This is the only way we can have peace.

Israeli leaders to discuss suspending Operation Cast Lead
By YAAKOV KATZ, AP AND JPOST.COM STAFF
Officials in the defense establishment have recommended to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to suspend military operations against Hamas in Gaza for 48 hours and during that time to review a number of possible ceasefire solutions for Operation Cast Lead.
Senior Israeli ministers were Tuesday night reportedly set to discuss the proposal. If the unilateral ceasefire would fail, Israel would launch a ground offensive, according to reports.
Olmert reportedly opposed suspending the operation. Barak was reportedly weighing the idea.
The recommendation, disclosed by defense sources on Tuesday evening, came after Defense Minister Ehud Barak spoke with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner earlier in the day.
The IDF issued a statement that it was not recommending a ceasefire.
The defense establishment is suggesting that Israel use the suspension of operations to carefully study Hamas's intentions; whether the group was planning to escalate the violence by renewing attacks inside the country or whether it would opt to stop its rocket attacks against the South altogether.
It was possible that Operation Cast Lead, the massive bombardment since Saturday of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, had already made clear to Hamas that the "rules of the game" had changed and that Israel will no longer tolerate rocket fire against its civilians, the unnamed defense establishment officials said.
France, which suggested the temporary suspension of operations, was the first non-Arab country to call for Israel to halt the operation, its president calling using Israel's use of force "disproportionate."
A Hamas spokesman said Tuesday evening that the Islamic terror group is conditioning a cease-fire on an opening of Gaza's borders.
The spokesman, Mushir Masri, spoke after news broke of the Israeli defense officials' recommendation.
Masri said an end to the fighting was not enough. He said that if Israel halted "the aggression and the blockade, then Hamas will study these suggestions."
