After Gaza kicks out Hamas, it should rename itself Gaza Beach and build a golf course alongside the Mediterranean.

Why do Gazans continue to attack Israel, get tear gassed and killed at the urging of unelected billionaire politicians?

Gaza is on the border of an economic powerhouse which wants to, needs to, join with them in creating a peace in which both peoples can thrive.

Yet, Gazans engage in futile displays of rage and violence.
Israel has a right to defend itself.

That’s a given.

Storming Israel’s border is a waste of time. Invaders will be repulsed.
(At this rate, the “protestors” are going to bankrupt the authorities who pay them (or their heirs) “salaries”.)

The Arab owned stalls and shops in West Jerusalem are overflowing with magnificent leather goods, art, silver, jewelry.

No one travels to Gaza.

Even if they did, who is going to buy anything from furious, enraged men and women who double as suicidal arsonists?

In 2005, Gaza had surf shops, magnificent flower and produce greenhouses whose output was exported all over Europe. Then Israel withdrew and they were destroyed.

No people can thrive in a perpetual state of anger, insecurity and uncertainty.

Looking forward to visiting Gaza Beach!
