I can not understand why so many countries are against Israel for retaliating against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

I can remember when Germany in the forties trying to destroy England by firing hundreds of rockets on them, killing thousands of innocent men, women and children.

With the help of the United States, Germany was reduced to rubble, and unconditionally surrendered in 1945. Germany was occupied by England, Russia, the United States and France for nine years after the war.

The same for Japan. After they, (Japan) bombed Pearl Harbor killing thousands, the United States turned that country into rubble, killing thousands, and completely destroying two cities with the atom bomb. Japan also unconditionally surrendered.

I can not remember any outcry that innocent civilians were being killed in Germany and Japan.

Israel should do what we did to Germany and Japan. Bomb Gaza until there is no more Hamas, sending the surviving Palestinians to Jordan or any other country that will have them. The Palestinians will not be happy until every Jew in Israel is dead.

I wonder what Obama would do if Cuba rocketed Miami. Most likely nothing, he'd be playing golf or attending a fund raiser.
