    Where to start when the facts are missing?

    One hardly knows where to start after reading Red Jahncke’s commentary originally published in Real Clear Politics and reprinted in The Day (March 12), “Gaza invasion is unjustified.

    Rather than dismantle his individual assertions one at a time, let’s just consider the big picture and let the facts speak for themselves. The misery he laments coming upon the Gazans is a direct result of the reprehensible actions against civilians, including the women and children they brutalized, and of the leaders they chose to represent them. It was fueled by their racist hatred of the Jews, which is clearly expressed in the Hamas Charter: “Our battle with the Jews is long and dangerous, requiring all dedicated efforts ... until the enemy is overcome, and the victory of Allah descends;” also, “the Prophet of Allah says: The Last Hour would not come until the Muslims fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them ...”

    It is totally understandable that Jahncke would choose to ignore these facts because they show that the foundation for his whole argument is built upon sand.
