Israel Cannot Afford to Allow a Terror State to Exist along Its Borders

(JNS) Israel Kasnett - Biden administration warnings that an Israeli military incursion into Rafah would cause a great number of civilian casualties are being proven wrong, as few Palestinian civilians have died since Israel decided to enter the Hamas stronghold. The international community's claim that Israel had no credible plan to deal with the Palestinian civilians in Rafah is also being proven wrong, as hundreds of thousands of civilians are moving out of harm's way and relocating to other areas of Gaza. Efraim Inbar, president of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security, noted the West's seeming obsession with the Arab-Israeli conflict compared to many other conflicts with far greater civilian casualties. "No one cares about people in Congo, Sudan or Syria. There was no uproar when civilians died in the thousands in these countries. When Jews are responsible, suddenly they are sensitive to civilian losses." Inbar added that the Biden administration's obsession with establishing a Palestinian state as a seeming reward for terrorism is "naive." Such an entity would be a terror state, and the tragic events of Oct. 7 prove that Israel cannot afford to allow terror states to exist along its borders.
