Remember the Siege of Beirut

The War in Gaza started 28 years ago when Israel allowed Yassir Arafat and his band of PLO murderers to flee from Beirut, which the Israel Defense Forces held under siege during the first War in Lebanon.


Arafat regrouped in Tunis and lied his way back to Israel, where he was rewarded with Yericho, Gaza, vast portions of Judea and Samaria, a stronghold in Ramallah, handshakes with Rabin and Peres on the White House Lawn, a Nobel peace prize, and enough arms and ammunition to subsequently slaughter and maim thousands of Jews.  Before dying of Aids, he enflamed the spirit of Arab nationalism into a terrorist cancer that brought forth the suicide bombers and rocket launchers of Hamas.

If we had killed him and his henchmen in Beirut, our soldiers wouldn’t have to be fighting in Gaza today.

The lesson is that victory will only be won in Gaza when we wipe out Hamas down to their very last sheik and soldier. But if we agree to a phony cease fire, and let them get away, you can be sure the rockets will return with even more fury and force.
