Rwandan Troops are the Solution for Gaza
By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
What to do about Gaza and Hamas? How can Israel avoid a war of attrition with Hamas endlessly firing rockets and Israel being forced to respond?
Many Israelis want the Jewish state to reoccupy Gaza. The truth is that Israel should have never dismantled the Jewish communities there in the first place. My children were some of the last to plant trees in Gush Katif on Tu B’Shvat, Jewish Arbor Day, in 2005. The Jewish communities in Gaza were a civilizing influence on a strip of land that would later succumb to the barbarism and tyranny of Hamas. I remember eating the luscious green peppers and apples that Jewish settlers grew right out of the sand dunes in Gaza green houses. What a change from the terror tunnels and murderous rockets which are the only exports of Gaza today.
But that ship has sailed. A military occupation without the support of local Jewish settlements will be challenging.
Then there is the idea of the Palestinian Authority taking control.
Mahmoud Abbas has not stepped foot in Gaza for years, and it’s because he knows he’ll be killed as fast as a Jew would be. He’s hated in Gaza and has zero influence. Hamas is his mortal enemy.
As for the UN, Israel isn’t going to trust the pathetic, impotent, ineffective forces of peacekeepers of a hostile international body which spends most of its time condemning the Jewish state.
But there is one possibility: Rwanda.
Israel has a special relationship with Rwanda, as I have written on many occasions.
Both Israel and Rwanda are nations that have experienced unimaginable genocides. Both have unique security situations. Both take aggressive action against enemies amassed on their borders to prevent another genocide. And both come under constant criticism from a do-nothing UN that has little sympathy for nations which have sworn to never again allow the mass slaughter of their citizens.
Israel’s genocidal enemies are Hezbollah, Hamas, and Iran, the first two of which are pressed right up on their border. Rwanda’s Hamas is the FDLR, comprised directly of those who perpetrated the 1994 genocide of the Tutsi and their ideological and biological descendants.
President Paul Kagame, like Benjamin Netanyahu, has been clear that he will not tolerate the terrorist incursions of the FDLR. He has taken aggressive action to fight them, and has gone so far as to push to remove Congolese governments who grant sanctuary and safe harbor to the genocidaires. For all this he has come under massive UN criticism.
He does not much care. He will quite simply never allow another genocide.
Israel too, under successive Prime Ministers, has made it clear they will not allow genocidal terror regimes to infiltrate their borders with fighters, rockets, or tunnels. And we see how much condemnation has come Israel’s way.
Which is why one of the only countries in the world that understands Israel and its security requirements is Rwanda. And it just so happens that Rwanda is one of the world’s largest contributors to UN peace-keeping missions.
Rwanda ranks sixth in the world in terms of contributing troop and police to UN’s peace-keeping forces. As of this writing, Rwanda fields more than 4000 troops, over 400 police, and 13 military observers to countries as varied as Darfur, South Sudan, Haiti, Liberia, Abyei, and Guinea-Bissau.
And Rwanda just added another 850 troops to the UN mission in Central African Republic due to the rapidly deteriorating situation on the ground.
With one of the strongest armies in all of Africa, Rwanda has the troops necessary to implement a muscular mission in Gaza that goes beyond ineffectual peace-keeping and pathetic by-standing and actually attempt to implement a demilitarization of Hamas.
What President Kagame remembers more than anyone else is the abandonment of his people by UN peacekeepers under Kofi Annan in 1994. Even as the UN commander in Kigali General Romeo Dallaire of Canada pleaded with Annan for permission to disarm the Hutu Interahamwe militia, Annan ordered him not to intervene, thus condemning nearly one million people to being hacked to death with machetes. The UN’s response to Annan’s criminal dereliction of duty was to promote him to Secretary General.
Kagame has never forgotten this.
When I was invited by the President to speak at the 20th anniversary of the genocide this past April at Amohoro National Stadium, I watched as hundreds of performers reenacted the abandonment of Rwanda’s Tutsi by the United Nations, right in front of Ban Ki Moon. The President did not care if he offended the sensibilities of an ineffectual international body that dares to condemn him even as they continue to allow Arab children in Syria to be gassed, Yazidis and Americans to be beheaded in Iraq, and Hamas to fire rockets from UN schools in Gaza.
It just might be that Israel would trust President Kagame with a UN peace-keeping force in the way that it would not, and should not, trust any other UN peace-keeping nation, with the exception of the US, which is not going to send troops.
Now why would President Kagame want to enter the quagmire of Gaza?
Firstly, Rwanda is Israel’s ally in every way. The President has a genuine attachment and affection for the Jewish state and may wish to help.
Second, Rwandan troops in Gaza forcibly implementing the destruction of Hamas rockets and tunnels would help the world understand Rwanda’s similar challenge and the need to demilitarize the FDLR terrorists. Rwanda providing a solution to Hamas would stymie much of the unfair international criticism that Rwanda receives for battling the FDLR.
Third, this tough task would help provide on-the-job training to Rwanda’s already formidable army in the tough task of demilitarizing a genocidal terrorist entity.
And if Hamas resists, and begins attacking Rwandan troops, then the whole world will finally see the truth: Hamas are hard-core killers with an unquenchable thirst for blood. They break every agreement they enter into. They have no “occupation” issue with Israel, which completely evacuated Gaza in 2005. Rather, they are an organization that glorifies death, both of Israelis and Palestinian children whom they offer up as human sacrifices to feed their death-cult blood lust.
And they must be stopped.

How can dims claim they’re not warriors against women when they advocate FOR murdering baby girls solely because of their gender? http://twg2a.wordpress.com/2012/05/31/democrats-and-planned-anti-parenthoods-war-on-women-backfires/
How can dims claim they’re not the party of racists? History reveals that every piece of racist legislation that was ever passed and every racist terrorist attack that was ever inflicted on African Americans, was initiated by members of the Democratic Party. From the formation of the Democratic Party in 1792 to the Civil Rights movement of 1960’s, Congressional records show the Democrat Party passed no specific laws to help Blacks, every law that they introduced into Congress was designed to hurt blacks. The chronicles of history shows that during the past 160 years the Democratic Party legislated Jim Crow laws, Black Codes and a multitude of other laws at the state and federal level to deny African Americans their rights as citizens.
History reveals that the Republican Party was formed in 1854 to abolish slavery and challenge other racist legislative acts initiated by the Democratic Party. http://twg2a.wordpress.com/2012/04/21/the-abhorrent-history-of-racism-within-the-democrat-party/
Congressional records show it was Democrats that strongly opposed the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments. These three Amendments were introduced by Republicans to abolish slavery, give citizenship to all African Americans born in the United States and, give Blacks the right to vote.
Congressional records show that Democrats were opposed to passing the following laws that were introduced by Republicans to achieve civil rights for African Americans:
Civil Rights Act 1866
Reconstruction Act of 1867
Freedman Bureau Extension Act of 1866
Enforcement Act of 1870
Force Act of 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871
Civil Rights Act of 1875
Civil Rights Act of 1957
Civil Rights Act of 1960
And during the 60’s many Democrats fought hard to defeat the
1964 Civil Rights Act
1965 Voting Rights Acts
1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act
Court records show that it was the Democrats that supported the Dredd Scott Decision. The decision classified Blacks as property rather than people. It was also the racist Jim Crow practices initiated by Democrats that brought about the two landmark cases of Plessy v Ferguson and Brown v. The Board of Education.
Here’s a list of the dims relentless lies about their extreme racist history: http://twg2a.wordpress.com/2011/11/06/the-democrats-and-their-relentless-lies-about-racism/
Lost to rewriting of history, the KKK was about anti-Republican politics, not skin color! Few know that the KKK was founded by Southern Democrats to shut down a Black Christian Republicans tidal wave. After Lincoln, first Republican President, and 13th and 14th amendments, Christian blacks across the south became political active as Republicans. Since 1868, prior to 1935, the first and only 23 Black U.S. House members were Republican. Contrast that to the first black Democrat House member, Arthur W. Mitchell, from Illinois, in 1935, 67 years after the first Republican. Since 1943, and since WWII, 92 of the 94 U.S. House blacks have been Democrats. Deception works.
From 1870 to 1967, the first and only three Black U.S. Senators were Republicans. Contrast that to the first black Democrat senator, Carol Moseley Braun, from Illinois, in 1993, 123 years after the first black Republican! Obama was the second, also from Illinois. The third is now Obama’s replacement, Roland Burris. Roland Burris and others have said that without Martin Luther King, Burris, Obama and blacks would not be serving in Washington DC. They ignore the 1867-1967 dominant black Republican political histories. Truth follows the evidence.
Politics begins in the city, county and States, then upward to the National. When the Lincoln’s 13th amendment was ratified by the states in 1865, blacks across the south were registering to vote. In 1867 the Republican Party of Texas was formed with 150 blacks and 20 whites. The first 42 blacks elected to the Texas State legislature were Republican. In Louisiana, the first 95 black state representatives and first 32 black state senators were Republicans, including a black Republican Lt Governor, who became the Governor. In Alabama the first 103 blacks elected were Republican. In Mississippi the first 112 blacks elected were Republican. Likewise, in South Carolina the first 190 blacks elected. In Virginia, the first 46 blacks elected. In Florida, the first 40 blacks elected. In North Carolina first 30 blacks elected. In Georgia the first 41 blacks elected.
The Southern Democrats (confederates) in political crisis began to fight back, to halt the growing Republican juggernaut by creating the Ku Klux Clan, a national and local organization primarily to halt the broadening of Republican Black Christians, active in elections. In 1866, Democrats attacked the Republican convention (mostly blacks) in New Orleans, killing 40 blacks and 20 whites, wounding 150 others. It took Federal intervention under the Republican Super Majority US Congress to restore the Louisiana legislature back to black Republican control. That is all now lost in the rewriting of History
The Black Democrat road to Washington has been through Chicago, Illinois. This explains why Barrack Obama moved to Chicago, joining ACORN, to pursue his political career, a northern state where blacks had always been liberated.
In 1865 came the Chicago stockyards and the world’s meat packing industry with big demands for labor and rail transportation. In 1893, Socialist Party of Chicago organized the Railway Workers union, largest of its time! In 1890’s, many Chicago blacks worked the Marxist unionized unions such as Pullman Railroad Car Company. Meatpackers union came in 1937! It is all about “CROWD” mentality, unions and blacks, more take than give.

“The bitterness and hate created by the late civil strife has been obliterated in this state, and would have long since been entirely obliterated, were it not for some unprincipled men who would keep alive the bitterness of the past, and inculcate a hatred between the races, in order that they may aggrandize themselves by office, and its emoluments, to control my people, the effect of which is to degrade them.”
Hiram Rhodes Revels
1827 – 1901
First African American Congressman
Plug your nose and take a sniff at the REAL DEMOCRATS.
“I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s not a n*gger or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a n*gger from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman. He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America.”

To ALL Who Support obama…….
When you have an opportunity, please attempt to answer this question as accurately and honestly as you are both qualified and capable of demonstrating…….
In your opinion, what are the legitimate concerns of muslim terrorists that target Christian communities and schools, kidnapping, raping and selling to slavery and jihad pedophiles and rapists, their young girls? They’re murdering any who resist or speak opposition to such horrific acts.
How do these savages, their american media minions and all you other obama supporters ever conceivably rationalize that acts such as this have legitimacy worthy of your support?
If you can stand by them and so vehemently defend such atrocities, it is crystal clear what, EXACTLY WHAT, you are. Shame on you (even though you clearly have no idea the concept of shame).
Silence in the face of evil is evil, but supporting, defending and standing with evil and against your own fellow countrymen is even worse.
Again, please do your VERY BEST to be honest in your answer. That is, just in case you can comprehend the basic concept of the term “honesty”.
And while you’re at it, look up the term “TRAITOR”.
Unless you’re just too damned ignorant and lazy…………… and evil to your very core………
I Still Hate You, Sarah Palin
The Republicans bring a knife to a gunfight, and lose again.
One of the most terrifying moments of my political life came last summer at the Republican convention in St. Paul. No, I don’t mean seeing John McCain careering around the Xcel Energy Center like Eyegore in Young Frankenstein, his face frozen in a Lon Chaney Sr. rictus grin as he reached across the aisle to his erstwhile friends in the media and got his hand bitten off. Rather, I’m referring to the aftermath of Sarah Palin’s outrageous acceptance speech, which whipped up the Rotary Club delegates into a frenzy of white-boy fury that not even heckling by a brave Code Pink embed could deter. Truly a fascist classic and one that sent shivers down our collectivist spines.
Even worse was the glaze of horror on the phizzes of the assembled heroes of the Mainstream Media. Andrea Mitchell — yes, the very same Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, whose employer saw no conflict of interest at all when she married then Fed pooh-bah Alan Greenspan — stood there gaping like a frog while the rest of the assembled Finemans and Matthewses and Olbermanns scurried around like roaches when the light gets turned on: What the hell just hit us? For one horrible moment, it looked as if the carefully crafted plans of David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, George Soros, and the Second Chief Directorate, first department, of the old KGB were about to gang agley.
Not only were we offended at the sheer effrontery of McCain’s pick: How dare the Republicans proffer this déclassée piece of Wasilla trailer trash whose only claim to fame was that she didn’t exercise her right to choose? Where were her degrees from Smith or Barnard, her internships at PETA, the Brookings Institution, or the Young Pioneers? We were also outraged that the Stupid Party had just nominated a completely unqualified candidate nobody had ever heard of, a first-term governor of Alaska whose previous experience consisted of a small-town mayoralty. As opposed to our guy, Barry Soetoro of Mombasa, Djakarta, and Honolulu, a first-term senator nobody had ever heard of, whose previous experience had been as a state senator (D., Daley Machine) in Illinois. After eight long, illegitimate, lawless years of &*^%BUSH$#@! tyranny, how dare you contest this election?
And so the word went out, from that time and place: Eviscerate Sarah Palin like one of her field-dressed moose. Turn her life upside down. Attack her politics, her background, her educational history. Attack her family. Make fun of her husband, her children. Unleash the noted gynecologist Andrew Sullivan to prove that Palin’s fifth child was really her grandchild. Hit her with everything we have: Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, taking a beer-run break from her quixotic search for Mr. Right to drip venom on Sister Sarah; post-funny comic David Letterman, to joke about her and her daughters on national television; Katie Couric, the anchor nobody watches, to give this Alaskan interloper a taste of life in the big leagues; former New York Times hack Todd “Mr. Dee Dee Myers” Purdum, to act as an instrument of Graydon Carter’s wrath at Vanity Fair. Heck, we even burned her church down. Even after the teleological triumph of The One, the assault had to continue, each blow delivered with our Lefty SneerTM (viz.: Donny Deutsch yesterday on Morning Joe), until Sarah was finished.
You know what? It worked! McCain finally succumbed to his long-standing case of Stockholm Syndrome (“My friends, you have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency”), Tina Fey turned Palin into a see-Russia-from-my-house joke, “conservative” useful idiots like Peggy Noonan and Kathleen Parker hatched her, and finally Sarah cried No más and walked away. If we could, we’d cut off her head and mount it on a wall at Tammany Hall, except there is no more Tammany Hall unless you count Obama’s Tony Rezko–financed home in Chicago. And it took only eight months — heck, Sarah couldn’t even have another kid in the time it took us to destroy her. That’s the Chicago way!
Yes, my friends, it’s once again time to quote Sean Connery’s famous speech from The Untouchables, written by David Mamet — the lecture the veteran Chicago cop gives a wet-behind-the-ears Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner, back when he was a movie star) while they sit in a church pew. “You want to get Capone? Here’s how you get him: he pulls a knife, you pull a gun, he sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way!” If you just think of us — liberal Democrats — as Capone you’ll begin to understand what we’re up to. And we just put one of yours in the morgue.
I don’t know why I’m telling you this, but maybe now you’re beginning to understand the high-stakes game we’re playing here. This ain’t John McCain’s logrolling senatorial club any more. This is a deadly serious attempt to realize the vision of the 1960s and to fundamentally transform the United States of America. This is the fusion of Communist dogma, high ideals, gangster tactics, and a stunning amount of self-loathing. For the first time in history, the patrician class is deliberately selling its own country down the river just to prove a point: that, yes, we can! This country stinks and we won’t be happy until we’ve forced you to admit it.
In other words, stop thinking of the Democratic Party as merely a political party, because it’s much more than that. We’re not just the party of slavery, segregation, secularism, and sedition. Not just the party of Aaron Burr, Boss Tweed, Richard J. Croker, Bull Connor, Chris Dodd, Richard Daley, Bill Ayers, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and Emperor Barack Hussein Obama II. Not just the party of Kendall “Agent 202” Myers, the State Department official recruited as a Cuban spy along with his wife during the Carter administration. Rather, think of the Democratic Party as what it really is: a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.
If you had any sense, you would start using our tactics against us. After all, you have a few lawyers on your side. Sue us. File frivolous ethics complaints against all our elected officials until, like Sarah, they go broke from defending themselves. (David Paterson would be a good place to start.) Challenge the constitutionality of BO2’s legion of fill-in-the-blank czars — none of whom have to be confirmed, or even pass a security check. (Come to think of it, neither did Barry.) Let slip your own journalistic dogs of war, assuming you have any, to find Barry’s birth certificate, his college transcripts, whether he applied to Occidental as a foreign student, and on which passport he traveled in 1981 to Pakistan with his friend Wahid Hamid, for starters.
You might also want to think about interviewing New York literary agent Jane Dystel, who a) contacted the totally unknown Obama in the wake of an adulatory New York Times piece in 1990 and b) got him a $125,000 advance for a memoir that c) he couldn’t write, even after a long sojourn in Bali, which d) got the contract canceled, whereupon e) Dystel got him $40,000 from another publisher, following which f) the book finally came out to glowing reviews and g) Obama fired her. Wouldn’t she have an interesting story to tell?
Of course, you won’t.
You’re too nice, too enamored of history and tradition to realize that the rules have changed. Remember, I live and work in a town where, “Hello, he lied,” isn’t a joke; we men of the Left are perfectly comfortable lying, cheating, and stealing — hello, Senator Franken! — in order to attain and keep political power. Not for nothing is one of our mottos, “By Any Means Necessary.” You see, we’re the good guys, and for us the ends always justify the means. We are, literally, shameless, which is why Bill Clinton is now a multi-millionaire and Eliot Spitzer is already on the comeback trail.
In Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, “the fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” This is the book that “Reset” Rodham (what ever happened to her?) and BHO II grew up reading and continue to live by. If you don’t understand that that’s the way we see you — as the enemy — then you’re too dumb to survive. Remember that for us politics is not just an avocation, or even just a job, but our life. We literally stay awake nights thinking up ways to screw you. And one of the ways we do that is by religiously observing Alinsky’s Rule No. 4.
Did Sarah stand for “family values”? Flay her unwed-mother daughter. Did she represent probity in a notoriously corrupt, one-family state? Spread rumors about FBI investigations. Did she speak with an upper-Midwest twang? Mock it relentlessly on Saturday Night Live. Above all, don’t let her motivate the half of the country that doesn’t want His Serene Highness to bankrupt the nation, align with banana-republic Communist dictators, unilaterally dismantle our missile defenses, and set foot in more mosques than churches since he has become president. We’ve got a suicide cult to run here.
And that’s why Sarah had to go. Whether she understood it or not, she threatened us right down to our most fundamental, meretricious, elitist, sneering, snobbish, insecure, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders bones. She was, after all, a “normal” American, the kind of person (or so I’m told) you meet in flyover country. The kind that worries first about home and hearth and believes in things like motherhood and love of country the way it is, not the way she wants to remake it.
What you clowns need, in other words, is a Rules for Radical Conservatives to explain what you’re up against and teach you how to compete before it’s too late. Luckily, since I care about money even more than I care about politics, I have just such a book in the proposal stage, currently making the rounds of various publishers, assuming any of them are wise enough to take me up on it.
And, yes, this time it really is personal.
– David Kahane is pushing for a new national holiday to commemorate the destruction of Sarah Palin, and is hopeful that his senators, Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, will co-sponsor it, along with Henry Waxman in the House. You can second the motion at email@example.com or on Facebook.
TWG NOTE: One would think the glassy eyeds would Love Sarah Palin, if they only knew her record!
As mayor of Wasilla:
#1 Took a town that had not grown in 30 years and grew it by adding big box stores. She was able to convince these stores they would be profitable and they are. In fact, Wasilla with a population of just 6300 has 50,000 people shopping there every day. It enabled her to cut property taxes by 75% and personal property and inventory taxes by 100%. The income from the malls allowed her to do much for the city.
Updated sewer system.
Repaved every road in Wasilla and added needed infrastructure by getting the new big box stores to chip in.
Built a multi sport arena for the children of Wasilla.
Kept a glass jar on her desk with the name and phone number of all residents. Once a week she would pull a name randomly and call them to see what they thought of the city.
As Chairperson of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission
#1 – As ethics officer, she found there was corruption on the committee being perpetrated by a member of her own party. She went to the head of the commission, the legislature and the governor seeking help in rooting it out. It soon became apparent to her that the corruption was widespread and it needed to be stopped. She got the head of the commission (a republican) and the secretary of state (another republican) to resign and face criminal charges.
#2 – She quit her well paying job, cutting her family income by 60%. Working as a private citizen she was able to not only get the commissioners fired, but thrown into prison to boot.
#3 – Seeing that the corruption ran all the way up to the governor’s office, she decided to run herself and won.
As Governor of Alaska
#1 – Her first act as governor was to veto a popular new law depriving gay couples of the same benefits straight couples get. And this from the woman dims allude to as a homophobe. It was her contention that her personal beliefs should not enter into governing the state and that all people deserve equal rights. What a fruitcake huh?
#2 – She took on the oil companies and made them increase their payments to the state for the oil and gas they took from there.
#3 – Despite dim hand wringing over her expenses, she was able to make 30% more public appearances as the former governor while cutting the travel expenses by over 80%!!!
#4 – Again cut taxes (this is becoming a habit) while still giving every resident of Alaska checks for 2500 dollars from the increased oil and gas money.
#4 – Before she knew she was carrying a special needs kid, she adopted a plan to triple the money spent on education for children with special needs.
#5 – In 2008 she was voted a 25,000 dollar pay raise which she refused to accept.
#6 – Although dims blame her for the bridge to nowhere, the truth is congress passed the expenditure in 2005, BEFORE she was governor. She pulled the plug on the plan as “wasteful”.
#7 – Has worked hard to build a gas pipeline from Alaska to the lower 48 states, which would greatly increase the states income while at the same time lowering the heating costs in the lower 48. Others had been trying for 35 years to build it and all of them failed. Sarah succeeded. Exxon with Trans-Canada are building the 26 billion dollar pipeline.
#8 – Went to court to force oil companies to either use their leases or forfeit them.
Not bad for an insane Woman, right?
