Israel: Heed Air Marshal Sir Arthur Harris

by Bill Levinson
Now that Israel has FINALLY retaliated against Hamas for Hamas’
ongoing litany of mindless violence and breaches of regional peace, it
needs to heed the advice of the British air marshal who supervised the
bombing campaigns of the Second World War. With regard to
justification of the bombing campaign in the first place, just replace
“Nazis” with “Palestinians” (easy enough) and the names of the Alli
cities with those of the Israeli cities at which the Palestinians have
fired rockets.

The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion
that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to
bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw, and half a hundred other
places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed
the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind.

With regard to the advisability of using Israeli ground troops (who
would suffer heavily in combat with guerrillas–house to house fighting
is a combat soldier’s worst nightmare):

I do not personally regard the whole of the remaining cities of
Germany as worth the bones of one British Grenadier.

The whole of Gaza is similarly not worth the bones of one IDF soldier,
if bombing the place into rubble will end the conflict without ground
combat. Civilian casualties are admittedly regrettable, but they are
the responsibility of the Hamas terrorists who hide among civilians
(often with the civilians’ consent and encouragement, because they
support Hamas’ agenda of terror). Harris had some good advice about
this too:

The aim of the Combined Bomber Offensive…should be unambiguously
stated [as] the destruction of German cities, the killing of German
workers, and the disruption of civilized life throughout Germany.

It should be emphasized that the destruction of houses, public
utilities, transport and lives, the creation of a refugee problem on
an unprecedented scale, and the breakdown of morale both at home and
at the battle fronts by fear of extended and intensified bombing, are
accepted and intended aims of our bombing policy. They are not by-
products of attempts to hit factories.

A similar bombing campaign by the IAF should similarly traumatize the
population of Gaza to such an extent that the dazed and vacant-eyed
survivors will never again think of lifting a finger to Israel, or
being caught in possession of so much as a model rocket (let alone a
Katyusha). Even if some might still be inclined to commit violence,
they will not have the means to commit it because they will be
struggling to find enough to eat in the rubble.

The above may sound harsh, but most normal people learn in
kindergarten not to hit other people unless they want to be hit back.
Most adults know that you don’t shoot at other people (even in the
absence of police) unless you want them to shoot back at you. As
stated by Harris, Nazi Germany did not understand this, or did not
care, so England turned Dresden into a giant crematorium. Hamas
clearly does not understand this either, so Israel is 100 percent
justified in turning Gaza into a giant crematorium if that is what it
takes to make the rockets and mortar shells stop.
