The Action Update: Israel Will Prevail Against Hamas

We’ve no doubt that even casual observers of the Middle East are aware that Israel is currently battling, yet again, against the Palestinian terrorist forces Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. As the terrorists hide behind innocent Palestinians, they have unleashed a hailstorm of rockets at Israeli civilians. Hamas and its ilk are war criminals, they are evil and they are cowards. In today’s Action Update, we’ll discuss how we got here, why we got here, and what we can expect in the coming days.

But in today’s Action Update, you’ll see how a variation of that quote makes sense: Peace will come when the Palestinian leaders love their people more than they love themselves.
