Maybe National Review Is Not Thinking Big Enough

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

National Review has an article titled, “Free Gaza from Hamas – It’s our only hope for ending the war on Israel.”. Matthew Continetti says in it that Israel has fought Hamas three times since 2007 since they took control of Gaza.

In all three cases the story has been the same: Israel is attacked; Israel responds; Israel is condemned; Israel ceases fire. Hamas is weakened. Hamas recovers. The rockets return. Rewind and repeat.”

Continetti says the solution is simple:

Want to end the war? I am not asking if you want to end Operation Protective Edge. I am asking if you want to end Hamas’s war on Israel. And if that is what you want, then the answer is simple: Free Gaza from Hamas.”

He’s right. That would take care of the irritant that is Gaza. But it would have no effect on Israel’s other enemies. Maybe Continetti is thinking too small.

Yesterday I was getting an oil change. The fellow there is a Christian and we got into a discussion of Israel and its problems with its neighbors. He said, “Israel should not concede any more land. They should return not to the 1967 border, but rather to the borders of King Solomon’s Israel. It extended all the way to the Euphrates river.” Intrigued, I asked for more.

He said it is recorded in the First Book of Kings in the Bible. He showed me this map:

King Solomon’s Israel

Here is the source for the map. As you can see it did extend to the Euphrates. It also included what is now Turkey and the north side of the Sinai Peninsula.

That is a very ambitious suggestion but it is true that Israel owned the Sinai at the end of the six-day war.

Territory held by Israel before and after the Six Day War. The Straits of Tiran are circled, between the Gulf of Aqaba to the north and the Red Sea to the south.

Now that is an idea that might actually bring peace to Israel for a lasting period of time. Israel, indeed, should not cede any more land. They need to do whatever they need to do to remain alive and viable.
