THE ONLY VIABLE SOLUTION
“HaShem spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan [River], at Jericho, saying, ‘Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them, “When you cross the Jordan [River] to the Land of Canaan, you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the Land from before you; and you shall destroy all their prostration stones; all their molten images shall you destroy; and all their high places shall you demolish. You shall possess the Land, and you shall settle in it; for, to you have I given the Land to possess it. ... But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, those of them whom you leave shall be pins in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you upon the Land in which you dwell. And it shall be that what I had meant to do to them, I shall do to you.”’”

Subject: The Only Viable Solution
Last week, columnist Larry Derfner opined that all tacks -- including negotiations, withdrawal, and military action -- have failed to stop Gazan rockets from falling on Sderot and environs. Well, not exactly. To date, military action has been employed only sparingly in order to avoid unrestrained World opprobrium or worse.
it is often forgotten that the State of Israel exists today as a Jewish nation-state due,
in large part, to the razing of some 400 hostile Arab villages and
the dispersal (by a combination of flight and expulsion) of their
to the failure of every other tack, the mass expulsion of Arabs
from Gaza to Egypt looms as the only viable solution to the existential
threat which now menaces Sderot (and will soon encompass Ashkelon, Ashdod
and a widening perimeter of Israel's civilian population centers).
With a population of more than 80 million,
Undoubtedly, a mass expulsion will prompt Egypt (and many other nations which appear unperturbed by Gaza's relentless aggression against Israel) to sever diplomatic and economic relations with the Jewish State, but a government which refuses to place the safety of its citizens above diplomatic and economic considerations -- weighty though they may be -- forfeits its raison d'etre.
