Just see – there is a storm and floods and see what you get:

“Israel opened the Kerem Shalom border crossing to the Gaza Strip on Friday to transfer emergency aid to residents suffering from wide-scale flooding and no heating.

The Jewish state sent gas for heating and water pumps to deal with the rampant flooding in Gaza. Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj. Gen. Eitan Dangot stressed that Israel would do everything necessary to help the Gaza and Judea and Samaria populations, Israel Hayom reported.”

Yet Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said, “Israel is the one to blame for what is happening in the Gaza Strip. The Knesset’s restriction on bringing building materials prevents us from fixing infrastructure and that is why we have floods.”

And what does that mean?

The Hamas Gaza leadership uses up all construction materials to build those infamous underground tunnels to Egypt and Israel – this for smuggling and for terrorism. So why send in more cement? Israel would be crazy to give in just because the UN keeps voting against Israel blaming them for everything under the son and the moon – rain or snow.    No pity for the Gazan’s and sorry for the Turkish mess that led to an Israeli apology for no good reasons.

All this amounts for pragmatic reasons to the need to push for a THREE STATES SOLUTION – that is for Israel-Palestine (the West Bank) agreements backed by Saudi Arabia and the other gulf States – this for the interest of everybody involved. That is achievable in the present conditions of the Middle East. Then Hamasstan remains as a renegade speck of land waiting for its own people to take the leadership in their own hands and chase out the Hamas. Sure – this will take time, but it should not cause a mortal danger to Israel as long as  it can withstand UN pressure.
