While criticism continues to pour in, it doesn’t seem that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is all that bothered by what people outside of his country think of the efforts being made to squash Hamas and their reign of terror in Israel.

Netanyahu appeared on Fox News Sunday and in just three minutes explained why “Operation Protective Edge” is absolutely necessary to the survival of Israel. IJReview reports that the Israeli Prime Minister made three powerful points, which if correctly understood, completely justifies every course of action taken by the country so far.

The Israeli leader’s first point was that Israel will do whatever it takes to ensure the safety of its people from Hamas and other radical terror groups.

Netanyahu went on to state that Hamas was targeting massive areas of Israel, a point he drove home by using the U.S. in a powerful illustration.

“I just want your viewers to imagine the United States being bombarded not in one city or two cities, but in every city between New York and Colorado. 80% of your citizens would have to be in bomb shelters or ready to go into bomb shelters within a minute to minute-and-a half, max. No country can accept that, we can’t accept it, and we’ll take the necessary actions to stop it.”

The prime minister also discussed the difficulty in taking out Hamas rocket launchers, since the terror group often conducts their attacks from within urban areas, using fellow Palestinians as human shields, an act Netanyahu condemns as cowardly.

“Here’s the difference between us. We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu is absolutely right. The U.S. would never in a million years accept the kind of treatment that Israel has patiently endured for years. America would retaliate with a massive coordinated military strategy that would not only secure freedom and peace, but would obliterate the enemy ensuring they never return to cause trouble again.

This is precisely what Israel is attempting to do, the same action any country would take, yet liberals the world over are jumping on the pro-Hamas bandwagon, eagerly taking every opportunity they’re given to express their anti-Semitic views.

Hopefully President Obama will snap out of his anti-colonialist coma and see that Israel is being bullied and will be motivated to throw support behind their efforts to secure peace.
