    Hamas must surrender

    Hamas is the cause of Gazan suffering. Consider Hamas: constructed underground terrorist tunnels under hospitals, mosques, schools, housing and UNRWA headquarters; on Oct. 7, invaded Israel to commit systematic rape, kidnapping, murder and mutilation; holds as hostage the remaining Israeli hostages and the people of Gaza; welcomes the deaths of Gazans; has the goals to repeat 10/7; runs the Ministry of Health that provides unreliable Gazan casualty data that includes Hamas terrorists and Gazan civilian human shields; has taught the children in UN-sponsored schools and textbooks, to hate Jews and Israel.

    The people of Israel: believe in life and hope; have a contentious democracy that is united against Hamas; have a home front media filled with exhilarating civilian and military stories which are ignored by the U.S. media; believe the world quickly turned its back on Israel after 10/7, just like it did in World War II. Imagine if after 9/11, college campuses erupted into pro Bin Ladin, anti-western colonialism protests. Ask yourself these questions: Why do Palestinians pass down refugee status from generation to generation? Why is there one UN agency, UNRWA, for the Palestinians and one UN Agency, UNHCR, for the 110 million refugees worldwide? Why virtually ignore the food plight of nearly 350 million people around the world (according to the World Food Program USA)?
