Hamas fired more than 600 rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel, killing four civilians and specifically targeting civilian territory with no military value, including a kindergarten and a medical center. The attack was unprovoked.

In response, Israel initiated a number of airstrikes, killing one Hamas member, eight jihadists, and around a dozen civilians.

Naturally, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., came out in support of Hamas.There’s just one problem here: there is no occupation in Gaza.

Israel formally disengaged from Gaza in 2005, both withdrawing its entire military presence from the region and dismantling all of its settlements. Since 2007, Hamas, deemed a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union, has controlled the region.

With all due respect, congresswoman, after coming under the fire of 600 rockets unprovoked, “real justice” would have been Israel responding with 600 rockets of their own instead of a few targeted airstrikes intended to take out Hamas terrorists. Considering that Gaza’s population density significantly outranks Israel’s, that would have caused hundreds if not thousands of fatalities rather than dozens.

That would not have been a good thing. So no, “real justice” would bring neither “security” nor “peace.”

The “endless cycle of violence” would cease in perpetuity if Palestinians were able to remove the literal terrorist organization now in power (officials in Gaza have managed to avoid holding elections for 13 years now), or if said terrorist organization were to stop launching barbaric attacks at Israel unprompted.
