Blair: Israel won't be able to destroy Hamas    Attila Somfalvi
1. I didn't know the "Quartet" was still around.
All the tenents of the Quartet have been scuttled a long time ago by Abbas and Hamas, so exactly what good is the Quartet, especially given the circumstances. I like Tony Blair and I believe he is a friend of Israel, but at the end of the day, Israel needs to give Hamas a humiliating defeat, arrest any of them that are still alive, destroy and disarm the Gaza strip. Reinstate the "Philidelphia Corridor" and let an international force police it, and then see if they can be "weened" off the hate machine that they have been hooked to for generations. It won't be easy.

2. Israel need merely remove her self inflicted handcuffs.
If Israel had a P.M. like Putin, the whole Fatah/Hamas/PA genocidal gang would be quickly destroyed. Israel need merely remove her self inflicted handcuffs and mete out the severe lambasting "palestinians" deserve. Of course, Israel can't win if Israel insanely feeds, clothes, supplies, arms and coddles her genocidal "palestinian" foes. As for Blair; he's a complete good-for-nothing.

4. Chamberlain also looked at "underlying problems"
Britain was ,allegedly",under blitz .. What a pity they didn't had Blair then to explain to them they sould look at "underlying problems instead on.." Gazans from baby to oldings want to destroy Israel.Blair knows it,but he wants to eeak out living of "looking at underlying situation"

5. That's okay, Mr. Blair
It's our problem, so you need to mind your own business. Besides, I think there is a VERY strong likelihood when future Hamas devotees see the carnage that is about to befall Hamas, they'll think twice. And even if they don't -- well, sonny boy, we have no problem killing them whenever we have to.

6. Maybe you couldn't whack IRA, but we can castrate Hamas.

This coming from a former PM who let his country become a heaven for radical Muslims.

Of course, and israeli gov should put an iron dome in the Al Quds lol You are so nice! What else?

10. Israel can but Blair doesn't want Gaza destroyed.
Blair is no military expert and has no idea what IDF can and cannot do. His opinions come from an European appeasement point of view.

12. Hamas's political side isn't the problem
It's the terrorism that needs to be destroyed completely. Then Hamas can pursue any politics it likes.

13. yeah sure just like Egypt couldn't crush the
muslim brothers ,   wrong!   (07.10.14)
14. Can't destroy Hamas
Wanna bet? The only thing you hint at that may be correct. In the hearts and minds, their will always be enough hate for the Jews to around for years to come. Jews will always have to fight for their existence.

15. blair has no flair
what is this idiot saying: because we have the mean to protect ourselves we should take the hit and not attack gaza in order not to cause "civilians" casualties in gaza? did he mention that the hamas that he supports ONLY attacks israeli civilians?

19. Blair insulting Israel
Blair does not know what he is talking about. Of course, Israel can destroy HAMAS just as the Egyptian Army led by Sisi destroyed the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists.

20. Israel
Israel is better able to defend against attacks then the other side so should not fight back? And we wonder why the bad guys are winning?

25. wiping out hamas
Blair may be right but so what, that is no reason not to try. I say take over gaza, destroy them all and their weapons and then leave. Let the Palestinian put gaza back together for themselves.

26. Hamas
Israel may not be able to destroy Hamas but Jehovah God can!!!!

27. Blah Blah Blah ...
You are quite wrong Mr Blair . . you represent various countries that have in the past excelled at the mass killing of Jews . . my advise, bugger off and go back home because you have no place in this so called peace process (if thats what you call the current situation). You are a miserable failure so go home . . get it ? Your'e not wanted.
Jacob ,   NZ   (07.10.14)
28. Tony is right
Only the people in Gaza can bring down Hamas. But they seem not to understand what havoc they bring upon themselves by voting in Hamas and supporting them. Note, too, that in the Arab section of Jerusalem, the old city, Arabs were chanting praises because fellow Arabs in Gaza where aiming rocket at them ! They thought this a good thing. Such death seeking is beyond our thinking. We embrace life.

29. Blair versus reality
I take exception to his comment, for the following reason. Hamas stated that all Israelis and Israel are now legitimate targets, that being the case, then I submit it frees IDF from having to protect the civilian population Hamas hides behind. In war it works both ways!
templeknight ,   emmaus,pa   (07.10.14)
30. hamas will only change if it has hope for the future
remember the hopes, when we gave them gaza, that it would become the singapore of the middle east, then they destroyed the greenhouses that would have made money for them and then they elected Hamas.
