‘Israeli’ Politicians Do Little Thinking outside Pillbox to Avoid another Gaza War
Local Editor

A fiery Knesset committee hearing on Wednesday punctuated with outbursts by politicians and parents served as a reminder of the battlegrounds and scorched earth remaining nearly three years after the 2014 Gaza war.

‘Israeli' Politicians Do Little Thinking outside Pillbox to Avoid another Gaza War

Through the highly charged atmosphere, one crucial fact appeared clear: ‘Israel' has no idea what to do with the Gaza Strip.

Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared before the parliament's Control Committee on Wednesday morning, ostensibly to answer questions concerning a highly critical state comptroller report about his government's management of the war, known in the ‘Israeli' entity as ‘Operation Protective Edge.'

But no substantive discussion on ‘Israel's' strategic vision for the Gaza Strip and its two million inhabitants was held in the three-and-a-half hour session, and the possibility of such a conversation in the future seemed slim.

Attempts to debate the issue rapidly devolved into partisan bickering and pedantic discussions of the ‘Israeli' Occupation Forces [IOF] tactics, and nonmilitary alternatives for the Strip were dismissed outright.

Additionally, despite ‘Israel's' having ostensibly disengaged from the Strip over a decade ago, it has launched three wars, a blockade and occasional rocket fire as well as border tensions.

Yet Wednesday's discussion in the Knesset about the Strip broke down repeatedly and ended almost exactly where it started, nowhere.

Members of the government coalition squabbled with members of the opposition about everything from public broadcasting to a recently declared hunger strike by Palestinian prisoners.

Attempts by some left-wing politicians, like Meretz leader Zehava Galon, to discuss the possibility of a diplomatic resolution in the Gaza Strip were shot down out of hand by Netanyahu as "ludicrous."

Also during Wednesday's Knesset hearing, Netanyahu gave no indication that the overall dynamic of the Gaza Strip is bound to change anytime soon.

Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz's proposal for a seaport in Gaza seems like a pipe dream and was only mentioned in passing at the meeting.

Dismissing the possibility of a "political alternative," Netanyahu said the only way to keep Hamas in line is through force.

And militarily, he said, ‘Israel' has two options: One, conduct a war like those in 2008-2009, 2012 and 2014, to "restore deterrence" and keep the status quo; or two, reoccupy the Gaza Strip.
