Peace through Strength is Still the Only Peace
There will be no peace while one side wants to slaughter Jews.
The recent attacks by Hamas have proven that Israel has only one option if it is to achieve a lasting peace: the complete and total eradication of Hamas. When the Allies fought the Nazis, they demanded not peace but victory. Anything less than unconditional surrender would be met with “ruthless” force. When they won, the Allies tried and executed numerous Nazis, in an effort to ensure they wouldn’t have to fight the same war again.

That effort was successful. But Hamas has the same goal Hitler did. It should be met with the same terms: anything less than unconditional surrender will be met with overwhelming force.
Many are rightly concerned with peace in the Middle East. They should know that there will be no peace while one side wants to slaughter Jews. Israel has offered peace before and been met with terrorism. The only peace that can come is a peace based on the utter destruction of terrorist organizations.
This may not win Israel many friends in the region in the short term, but it will gain them allies in the long term. Sometimes, it is better for people to respect you than to like you. Iran will never be an Israeli ally under the current regime, but many of Iran’s enemies will prefer a strong Israel to a strong Iran. An Israeli response to Hamas which demonstrates the Israelis capable of destroying their enemies will earn the respect necessary for that kind of peace.
Hamas’s attacks have been described as “medieval” and “barbaric.” Ancient manifestations of human nature in the modern day. Honor is another different kind of ancient manifestation—it is the reputation for repaying violence with violence. Something deep in human nature responds to this kind of honor. Israel’s national honor is on the line. On it depends peace for the Israeli people.
