Going backwards in the global war against terrorism

Former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warns that, in the aftermath of Israel’s upcoming departure, “Gaza will be transformed into a base for Islamic terrorism adjacent to the coast of the State of Isreal.” Netanyahu made this obvious point in an interview with the Jerusalem Post”. He added that Gaza’s transformation will also be a threat to the West because “forces that are controlled, deployed and cooperate with Iran – and today Hizbullah and Hamas are controlled in a significant way by Iran – will receive an additional base of operations not only in close proximity to Israel’s cities but also on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea not far from
Europe.”
The U.S. has, at great cost, overthrown two governments that harbored and supported terrorists. But now, with U.S. encouragement and indeed pressure, Israel is about to transform Gaza into a substantial base of terrorist operations.
