What is it that Israel wants?


Trying to make sense of the horror in Gaza, and yet to find a reason why it is happening. I dont believe their security angle, and certainly not their claim that this nightmare will bring about peace. I somehow cant believe that the tiny Gaza strip, with its limited resources, and its starving weary inhabitants are in anyway a threat to one of the mightiest militaries in the world. Are their elected representatives, Hamas, honestly such a worry to the state of Israel, and her ally, the ominous USA?

The shear brutality and inhumanity of this latest attack has succeeded in removing the blinkers off a former soldier in the IDF, Avi Shlaim, who is currently an academic in Oxford. He also tries to make sense of the onslaught, and comes the closest to I think exposing the true agenda of the Zionist regime:

“The declared aim of the war is to weaken Hamas and to intensify the pressure until its leaders agree to a new ceasefire on Israel’s terms. The undeclared aim is to ensure that the Palestinians in Gaza are seen by the world simply as a humanitarian problem and thus to derail their struggle for independence and statehood.”

“The army top brass had been champing at the bit to deliver a crushing blow to Hamas in order to remove the stain left on their reputation by the failure of the war against Hezbollah in Lebanon in July 2006.”
