Dov Fischer writes in Spectator to explain what is happening in Israel. He gives us some history and then moves on to the present.

And England would be doing the same if their cities were enduring this. So would France and Germany. So would China and Russia. So would you if you had the button.
For Israel, there is no making peace with people who will not accept the right of Jews to live sovereign in the land. It is a hard pill to swallow, recognizing with exasperation that there is no possible formula for making peace with such other than utterly crushing. The reason that German Nazis under Hitler and Eichmann finally have stopped their effort to destroy Jews is that they are dead, crushed, annihilated, wiped out. Even their carcasses are gone. The reason that Japan, who destroyed Pearl Harbor, became friendly to and a great ally of America can be explained in eight syllables: Na-ga-sa-ki-Hi-ro-shi-ma.
As Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders tweet their condemnations of Israel for doing what any sovereign country would do to defend itself against a terror regime that bases its rocket launchers in hospitals, elementary schools, residential apartment buildings, and in ambulances, fair people will respond in the only five words that seem logical: They can go to hell.
