Hamas prevents lasting peace

Enough is enough.

If we look at the recent problems in the Middle East, one can only hope that Hamas is disarmed, destroyed, disabled and defeated. Forever!

Hamas could have built schools, paved roads, and built additional infrastructure with the cement and iron it has used to build underground bunkers and tunnels. No Palestinian person is brought to safety in these tunnels. Hamas wants civilians on the street, on the roof, standing nice and close to the terrorist firing the rockets.

When al-Qaida destroyed the twin towers, the United States hunted them down relentlessly. Hamas has been labeled as a world terrorist organization. The Palestinians must be the first to renounce these terrorists. World organizations need to support Israel and the Palestinians to rid themselves of these parasites.

An overly simple solution is to have a recognized world organization go into Gaza, expose all the tunnels wherever they are located and destroy them. They need to identify sources and locations of all munitions stockpiles. The munitions for killing need to be destroyed. The governing of Gaza and the West Bank needs to be consolidated.

Until such time, when Hamas is destroyed forever, there will never be a lasting peace in that tiny but important part of the world.
