Krauthammer: The Truth About Gaza

Well written, but nobody cares. 

“Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli prime minister.

“We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

"Rarely does international politics present a moment of such moral clarity. Yet we routinely hear this Israel–Gaza fighting described as a morally equivalent “cycle of violence.” This is absurd.

"What possible interest can Israel have in cross-border fighting? Everyone knows Hamas set off this mini-war. And everyone knows Hamas’s proudly self-declared raison d’être: the eradication of Israel and its Jews."

(Actually, it's Jews everywhere, not just in Israel.)
