Attack on Gaza, is Israel justified?

Attack on Gaza, is Israel justified?
The attack on Gaza by Israel has stirred world politics and flared-up passions from both the side. While Israel claims to be attacking Gaza to destroy weapon carrying capacity and other facilities that were used by Hamas to use against the state, there are people who claim it to be nothing but an act of ‘aggression against humanity’. With US President Obama backing Israel’s claim of a right to defend its border, the Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi has backed Hamas and said that Egypt would not leave Gaza on its own. As the world and UN appeals for calm, the imminent strife seems to have broken the fragile peace that existed in Gaza.

Reasons for Israel to go for attack
  • Goal - Israel's goal is to stop rocket fire into Israel and weapons smuggling into the Gaza strip
  • Self-defense – Israel claims to have attacked Gaza to destroy armament and other strike facilities of Hamas. It has also sternly said that it has right to defend its citizenry and any attack on Hamas is legitimate and that it would not stop at anything to protect itself from these outfits.
  • Curb Hamas – Hamas has to be curbed for a stable Middle East Asia. Israel has suffered numerous rocket attacks launched by Hamas and it has to neuter it for safety of its citizen.
Reasons against Israel for attacking Gaza
  • World opinion - World is stunned by sudden attack of Israel and sees it as an aggressor. It sees it as an imperialist power hell-bent on thumping its existence on the corpse and wounds people of Palestine. Hence, Israel must always keep its image intact, because in diplomacy it is all that matters.
  • Human tragedy - Precious human life has been lost on both sides. There is no end in sight and Israel has not ruled out a ground operation, which means that a small scale war may be imminent.
  • Break down of dialogue process - This attack would send the peace process back by many years back. This attack has broken down even the back door diplomacy that was started after many years of effort and reconciliation. Muslim world is aghast while the others are stunned. It may further fuel aggression in Muslim youth and may lead to more violence.
