Advice for Netanyahu: 'Give war a chance'

A retired Army chaplain and expert on the Middle East says it is a mistake for Israel to continually agree to cease-fires whenever Palestinian terrorists launch rocket attacks against innocent Israelis.

Hutchens, Dr. James (The JerUSAlem Connection)Brigadier General Dr. James Hutchens (USA-Ret.) is a former chaplain who now serves as president of The JerUSAlem Connection. He says the same sad movie continues to play time and time again: Israel is attacked by Arab terrorists, they respond, and when they get the upper hand, they agree to a cease-fire demanded by the U.S., the U.N. and the E.U.

But Hutchens believes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should "give war a chance."

"There are those who have been advocating all along that there is a diplomatic solution to this, and I just don't believe it," Hutchens offers. "I don't think you can deter Jihadists. I don't think you can negotiate with them. They have to be defeated. There has to be a military solution -- Then you can talk about any diplomacy afterwards."

He asserts that peace will only come from the Prince of Peace. 

"We're praying for the coming of the Messiah, for the return of Jesus," the former chaplain states. "He's the only one that can bring peace. When He comes, there's all kinds of havoc that's raised, and those who oppose Him cease to oppose."

Hutchens adds that the Bible is clear: a colossal clash between Israel and the surrounding peoples is coming.
