A quick word about Rafah

Before anyone gets their undies in a twist in regard to the "razing" of Rafah, just remember these little tidbits:

1. Hamas has based operations out of there.
2. Tunnels for smuggling weapons used by terrorists.
3. The mutilated bodies of the Israeli soldiers killed last week were taken into Rafah.
4. Rafah has served as a hotbed of violence for years.
5. Rafah was one of the communities in which Palestinians celebrated the 9/11 tragedy.
