The latest Gaza war left many Israelis throwing their hands up in the air as the international community once again bickered endlessly over Israel’s “disproportionate” military action, while failing to suggest any concrete alternative solutions to incessant Hamas rocket attacks and the threat of terror tunnels.
But it is often under pressure that many Israelis become most creative. A great deal of this nation’s acclaimed innovation in the fields of technology, medicine and agriculture has come as a result of dire situations that demanded quick and unprecedented solutions.
If the world is unwilling to truly let Israel militarily defend itself in a way that ends future threats, one group of Israelis believes it has one or two solid back-up plans.
The first, codenamed “Operation Gaza Dome,” pokes fun at UN Human Rights chief Navi Pillay’s complaint that Israel and the US had failed to provide Gaza with an “Iron Dome.”
The second, “Operation Gaza on the Water,” seeks to off-load the Gaza problem on those who like to criticize without truly understanding what Israel is dealing with.
