It’s time to answer the question

October 7, 2023, and its aftermath was a dreadful time of awakening.

It was a time when antisemitism ceased festering just beneath the surface and raw unabashed Jew hatred erupted in full public display.

It was a time when the morally challenged Palestinian Arabs of Gaza, Judea, and Samaria, celebrated the rape and mutilation of women, the beheading and burning of infants, the massacre and dismemberment of the elderly and disabled, and the seizing of hundreds of hostages from infants to the aged.

It was a time when well-funded college campus elites, radical Islamist, and dyed in the wool antisemites, coalesced in a unified voice to blame Israel for the atrocities Hamas inflicted upon innocent civilians.

It was a time when Israel’s IDF responded against Hamas, determined to dismantle its war machine in an effort to prevent a repeat of the massacre of innocent Israels.

So the unanswered question remains, how does Israel, a country with high moral standards, effectively wage war against an enemy that has none?
