On August 20, 1940 Winston Churchill, Great Britain's new Prime Minister, addressing Parliament as the desperate Battle of Britain continued, with the final victory of the RAF over the Luftwaffe's assault against  England still in the balance, said of Fighter Command, "Never on the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few".

By Alexander Joffe and Asaf Romirowsky: Stop Giving Money to the U.N.'s Relief Agency for Palestinians | August 20, 2014 | UNITED NATIONS | More About: Gaza, Hamas, Israel

When Hamas fires its last rocket and Israel drops its last bomb, the extent of Gaza’s devastation will become clear. An early estimate is that some $5 billion will be necessary to rebuild residences and infrastructure destroyed in the recent conflict. The first step is to take United Nations Relief and Works Agency out of the equation.

In the Hobbessian -  "the war of all against all" -  inferno called Gaza, ISIS is alive and well. Over the past decade, it has become clear that Hamas is not the only terrorist organization operating in the Gaza Strip, which has become a base for dozens of jihadi groups, some linked to Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Paul Merkley: The Largest Lesson from the Gaza War

By Paul Merkley: The Largest Lesson from the Gaza War | August 11, 2014 | Gaza | More About: Hamas

For me, the utmost revelatory moment of the Gaza war – as I write, in shaky recess on account of another doubtful ceasefire -- came during the interview that Osama Hamdan, the official press spokesman for Hamas, gave to Lebanon’s Al-Quds television July 28 and that was picked up by CNN on August 4, just as terms were being announced for that earlier ceasefire.  Hamdan proudly a

Frederick Krantz: ISRAEL, HAMAS AND THE THIRD (AND FOURTH?) GAZAN WAR: A CLAUSEWITZIAN PERSPECTIVE

By Prof. Frederick Krantz, DirectorProf. Frederick Krantz, Director | August 8, 2014 | Gaza | More About: Hamas, Israel

As the rockets again begin to fall on Israel after what looks like yet another Hamas-violated case-fire, the words of the great Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz, come to mind. In his classic On War (1838), he said that the goal of war is “compulsory submission of the enemy to our will”, resulting in his complete disarmament [through surrender or destruction].

By Erol Araf: J’ACCUSE! | August 5, 2014 | ISRAEL

I accuse all those who exploit Israel's legitimate war of self defense against a murderous theocracy of creating  an ecosystem of anti-Semitism not seen since the days of the Third Reich.
