The things going on at the Gaza border.

Israel never should have left Gaza the way that Sharon incompetently and foolishly did.  He was too full of himself -- in more ways than one.  No one in Israel wanted Gaza, but Ehud Barak already had shown how stupid it would be to walk away unilaterally when he handed Southern Lebanon to Hezbollah. So, to prove Einstein's thing about insanity, Sharon did the exact same idiotic thing, and now Israel has a royal mess on both sides.  (Ehud Olmert, a bigger dope than the other two, wanted then to do the same thing yet again in Judea-Samaria -- even Einstein never had anticipated that level of insanity -- but Olmert first botched the Hezbollah War, got immediately bounced from office along with his incompetent Defense Minister Amir Peretz (the latter a union hack who had no business being Defense Minister but demanded the spot as a payoff for having his Labor Party vote with Olmer's now-defunct Kadimah Party), and Olmert ended up in prison as a convicted crook. He was such a raunchy crook that, even though he did not get to pass "GO!" on the way to prison, I think he still managed to swipe the extra $200 from the "Free Parking.")

So now Israel has Hezbollah on its north and Hamas on its south.  Indeed, Israel would have Iran in Syria, too, but Bibi's government would not abide it.  Time will tell whether the idiots there choose to oust Bibi over his foolishly accepting from one of his supporters cigars and champagne that did not bear the Trump brand name.  Anyway . . . 

Stop.  Think.  (That puts you ahead of Bette Midler.) Ask: What exactly is going on at Israel's Gaza border?  

The answer: Arab Muslims who march to Hamas commands have been gathering in the tens of thousands trying to break into the country, to tear down Israel's border fence, shouting "Death to Israel." 

Uh, what exactly is Israel supposed to do?  Does it not make sense to shoot them all?  Really.

If you had thirty drunks with knives and hatchets trying to break down and into your house, what would you do?  Call John Kerry? Call Bette Midler? Natalie Portman?  No, you would do one of three things:
1. Kill yourself.
2. Call the cops at 9-1-1.
3.  Start shooting at the crowd till the cops arrive.

That's what Israel did.  They chose not to kill themselves.  So they got their cops, and they started shooting.

What would Erdogan do if 50,000 Kurds tried to break into Turkey and destroy Turkish sovereignty?  What would Putin do if 50,000 people tried to break into the -- well, come to think of it, no one ever tries to break into the Soviet Union or whatever nickname it goes by.

What would America do if 50,000 M13 gang members tried to break down the border and enter en masse?

You shoot them.  You absolutely shoot them.

Look, if one or two people accidentally cross the border, so that's a thing that happens. Remember that Marine with the gun in his car who accidentally crossed into Mexico? And there was this time that we were touring in southern New Mexico, and one of my daughters went strolling with another family member to check something out and inadvertently crossed the border into Mexico, which set off a classic comedy of errors because they did not have I.D. or whatever. And then they had to convince the Border Police that they were not Mexicans nor ISIS but schlemazels from New York.

But when all 50,000 of your daughters announce that they will destroy the country, violate its borders, tear down its wall -- heck, the only thing you do is you shoot them.  I truly cannot understand what the issue is.  You shoot them. Of course you shoot them.  What country would not shoot them?

You lob tear gas to break up a violent demonstration at Berkeley when Ben Shapiro  comes to tell them that facts do not care about their feelings.  You drop leaflets to warn people who can read.  But when 50,000 people gather together on your Independence Day, declare that your Independence Day is their Catastrophe Day and that they now are going to straighten out the historical disappointment by seizing your country -- heck, you just shoot them.

After all, why were these people gathered there?  What were they seeking to do?  Why were 50,000 of them, at the behest of Hamas, trying to surge through the border of Israel --

To learn Hebrew at discounted Ulpan classes?
To learn Torah at yeshiva?
To ask Bibi for cigars and champagne?
To see whether Jared Kushner came with a yarmulka in his pocket?

Come on.  They came with violence. Many of the dead ones now have been identified as known Hamas leaders.  They fly these kites that they set on fire, hoping to start fires in Israeli farms across the border.

You shoot them.  And you shoot them.  And you shoot until people learn that Israel is a country, not a shtibl, and it has laws and borders and an army.  And no one else does this or deals with this nonsense.  No one charges a border like this. Israel is not UC Berkeley or some effete dung hole like Swarthmore, where Jew-haters on campus gather to destroy the Jewish People and terminate the State of Israel by announcing that they are boycotting Sabra Hummus until the end of Spring Term finals.

Hamas has been given so many billions from the idiots in Europe and elsewhere, not to mention via the Obama-Kerry Cash Payola to Iran. They use the money for cement and steel to build underground murder tunnels instead of building hospitals, schools, apartment buildings.  They put it into war, not peace.  So the locals have nothing, are miserable, see jews across the border living like real people do in the world where people spend money on stuff like food and clothes and kids' education instead of murder tunnels.  And they want in.

But, really, there is only one way that any country would deal intelligently with such a thing: You shoot them.  Otherwise, if you do it like Bette Midler and John Kerry, and you bring people to sing "You've Got a Friend" and "Hello, Dolly!" soon you end up with a hundred thousand, then a million, then two million people hell-bent on destroying your country.

There is no other way.  You shoot them.

And then you go back to celebrating the new embassy in Jerusalem, preparing next for Guatemala, Honduras, and Paraguay to come.  And maybe thereafter Romania and the Czech Republic.  You thank Trump.  For moving the embassy that Clinton said he would move but lied. And Bush lied.  And Obama lied. 

And you thank Trump for killing the Iran Deal, which let them build their ballistic missiles and spread murder tyhroughout the world.  And you thank Trump maybe for getting the NoKo Doughboy off the nuclear warpath, which is good for Samsung and Kia, and people who buy them, and for Japan and for Hawaii, and maybe also takes a critical nuclear player out of Iran's orbit. You thank Trump for tax cuts and for nipping some of Obamacare out and for getting tough on trade.

You begin to realize that he is not suffering from dementia but is crazy like a fox.

And you only regret that he does not have more class and character because, if he did, he really might prove worthy of a spot on Rushmore. Instead, he is Trump.  So we take the bitter with the sweet.

And we thank G-d that it was not Hillary.
