Powerless in our own backyard

And whilst on the subject of Gilad Shalit, just consider this.

3o years ago Israeli troops flew 2,200 miles to a foreign country and rescued 80 Jewish civilians in Entebbe within a few days of their capture in an airplane hijacking.

Today - after 9 months - the government of Israel has not been able to organise the rescue of a single lonely soldier from our own back yard!

In Gaza ... an area the IDF has occupied for decades and knows like the back if its hand.

Is it any wonder that our enemies no longer fear us?
That they laugh at us?

That they can only be encouraged to do more of the same?
