The snippet that I respond to below was written by Jerusalem Post staff:
Israel should seriously consider the reoccupation of the Gaza Strip in response to Palestinian rocket fire on the western Negev, former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman told Israel Radio on Monday.It is exceedingly late as I write this, so I intend to keep my comments brief.
Liberman, who currently heads the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said that if Israel were to allow the status quo to persist, Hamas would amass a fleet of aircraft and missiles that would threaten populous coastal towns like Tel Aviv and Netanya.
"Hamas has no intention of reconciling with a Jewish presence in Israel," the chairman of the Yisrael Beytenu party said. "So we need to return to the Gaza Strip and conduct a thorough cleaning."
When asked if his position was supported by the prime minister and defense minister, Liberman said he did not know.
Hamas has got to go.
Hamas does not just call for the elimination of Israel as a Jewish State, but calls for the genocide of the Jews quite specifically in its charter.
This makes them something akin to Nazis - who we know they have an historical connection to - and this means that they lose their right to exist as an organized group.
I do not know that Israel should take the hideous Gaza Strip, but there is no question in my mind that Hamas needs to be dismantled.
This organization is no better than the Ku Klux Klan and absolutely must go - by any means necessary.
