Defeat of Hamas will be gift to world

Since Israeli forces left Gaza more than three years ago, the citizens of Israel have been subjected to virtually daily assault by mortar and rocket fire from that territory.

The government of Israel has shown extraordinary, and perhaps foolish, restraint in not acting militarily to defend its citizens and stop the attacks by the Hamas-led regime ruling Gaza before now. At the same time that Hamas has attacked Israel, it has attacked fellow Gazans and persecuted non-Muslims.

Israel’s actions over the past week bring the prospect of liberation and safety to all peace-loving citizens in Gaza and its environs.

The defeat of Hamas will be welcomed as a new year’s gift to the entire world. Jonathan C. FinkelsteinEllicott City
