Today brought a new meaning to Delta Force.
The decision by Delta Airlines to suspend flights in and out of Israel changes the calculus of this war dramatically. Other airlines and the FAA were quick to follow.
In the days following the downing of Malaysia’s flight MH17 it is the insurers who will be calling the shots.
After Delta’s lead, any other airline’s insurer will fear being asked – after an unfortunate accident – ‘why didn’t you follow Delta’s lead … it was criminally negligent not to do so’.
All this means that the security cabinet must now accept the reality that Hamas threatens to shut down the economic life of the country. One must expect the government to flood the Gaza strip with enough troops to now totally destroy Hamas and its infrastructure. To surround their schools, mosques and hospitals, evacuate them and blow up the rockets buried beneath.
As I said in my previous posting, Prime Minister Netanyahu must put his phone on silent to Ban Ki Moon, Kerry and all comers - and finish the job.
Apart from anything else, Hezbollah and their Iranian puppeteers are watching very closely.
They need to see that the UN will not save them if they think of waging the same campaign with the 10,000 Iranian rockets they have stockpiled in South Lebanon.
Whatever happens, let this be the object lesson for Judea & Samaria – the so-called West Bank.
Whatever parts of our blessed land are given away to Arabs will be converted into a launching pad for our destruction.
The message is clear.
G-d is speaking to us.
