The Next War In Gaza Is Coming

Daniel Shapiro, Bloomberg: All Signals Point Once Again to War in Gaza

The next war in Gaza is coming.

In over five years as U.S. Ambassador to Israel, I found no issue more impervious to solutions than Gaza. We were constantly preventing, managing or responding to crises -- trying to head off terror attacks by Hamas and others, supporting Israel’s right to defend itself, negotiating ceasefires and working to alleviate human suffering.

I also learned that Gaza wars follow a kind of routine. Hamas upgrades its attack capabilities, and tensions build. Both sides prefer to avoid an escalation, but some incident, perhaps unintended, leads Hamas to increase the rate of rockets fired into Israel. Eventually, Israel deems the provocations intolerable, and launches a heavier response, such as when it conducted a targeted strike on Hamas military wing chief Ahmed Jabari at the start of Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012. A full-on conflict ensues, with ceasefire negotiations competing with Hamas rocket and tunnel attacks, Israeli airstrikes, and calls from the Israeli public for a ground invasion to “finish the job.”

WNU Editor: I see the signs of another war also .... probably the end of this year or early 2018. But unlike past conflicts where the U.S. rushed in to defuse and stop the fighting .... I do not see the Trump administration stepping in to stop the next war .... if anything, I think they will tell the Israelis  to do what they feel is necessary, and leave it at that.

Within the last week. Trump was going to start working on a peace deal.

My 2 cents is that the Israelis killed the Hamas commander to derail the Peace talks.
But what do I know?

The Israelis are always executing scoundrels every so often. The just got one on Syria in the last fortnight. So this could very well be coincidence.

The only reason it has not been in the news that Hamas has been provoking Israel is because they can't

If Hamas could, they would. You know the devils of Hamas are good for it. Between the wall and the dome Hamas is mostly impotent.

Hamas should stick to what they are good at like closing women's beauty salons and not mess with Israel

Hamas act like bounders, dogs.

For a definition of a bounder see " A Man and his Dogs"

Hamas are the type of people that "pull a horse to water and whip them until they drink."

Seriously, who needs people like that?

Hamas continues to state that they will never make peace with Israel. Israel, my sources tell me, will, this time, if they have to go again into Gaza will do its best to finish Hamas off, fully.
