Low-tech terror from Gaza

It was Samson who tradition says set the tails of 300 foxes on fire and sent them into the fields of the Philistines to destroy their crops. A similar low-tech weapon has been employed by Palestinians in Gaza in recent months. Burning kites and balloons they have sent over the border fence into southern Israel have destroyed some 7,000 acres of land, causing millions of dollars in damage and untold emotional trauma.

Like those who earlier this summer sought to fling burning tires into Israel, the kite flyers are not peaceful demonstrators, and their acts of violence are doing nothing to improve life in Gaza. If anything, they are providing a potential spark for war between Israel and Gaza’s rulers, Hamas. And even in the absence of war, the death toll is rising. On July 20, a Palestinian sniper killed an Israeli soldier. And on July 27, a 17-year-old Palestinian was felled by Israeli soldiers protecting the border.

    Thank you for this truthful editorial about Hamas' guilt for sponsoring the aggressive anti-Israel "low tech terror". Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood which bases its war against Israel on the Islamic sacred sources, the Koran and the sayings of Muhammad, which command Moslems to make war on the Jews and either subjugate them to Islamic rule or to kill them. The Muslim Brotherhood is the mother organization of Al Qaeda, ISIS and other Moslem terrorist organizations. and also the Council on American Islamic Relations. The Arizona branch of the Council on American Islamic Relations was was founded by the Democratic candidate for Senate in Arizona, Deedra Abboud. Hamas' low-tech terror should not be viewed in isolation, but as part of the overall Muslim Brotherhood goal of annihilating Israel.
