Sucks to be in Gaza.....

JERUSALEM – Israeli jets and helicopters bombarded Gaza Friday and Hamas responded with a barrage of rockets, as Israel's government said it will press forward with its offensive despite a U.N. resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire.

This is the first paragraph from a story from the Associated Press via my Yahoo page....

Look - I feel for the people in Palestine - I really do. I think it unimaginable to have to decide to keep my kids home and possibly die or send them to school and possibly die - to be without water and running out of food. Absolutely UNIMAGINABLE.

That said, what did Hamas think would happen? Israel has NEVER just rolled over and taken it. They fight back and they fight back HARD. They wait years, tracking and killing those that kill Jews....THEY ARE RELENTLESS....

Hamas is like that STUPID kid who teases a dog on a chain but stands too close and doesnt get out of the way fast enough. I feel for a child hurt, but hey, you poked a dog with a stick - LEARN THE LESSON....

And lets also be accurate in the news coverage, AP - I know yall want Israel to stop the bombing, and you subtly are trying to "shame" them in doing so, but you are news - NEWS - which means, "Just the FACTS, Ma'am" unless you are in the "OPINION" page and then say whatever you want.... Hamas didnt "respond" they started this fight. They continue to lob missiles. Just because they are undermanned and underarmed DOES NOT make them the underdog in need of rescuing or in someway on the "right" side. Understand? They are not being picked on - that would be Israel who DID NOT start this and is under INTERNATIONAL pressure to stop....

And another thing - who does the UN think they are to tell a country to stop defending itself? Get a clue UN - You are barely tolerated in this country (this country who houses you and gives you most of your money). When we are completely broke and we Citizens decide not to take it anymore, you are out of business. Actually, I dont think you will be out of business, you are too corrupt to give it up entirely, but we will finally see where your money comes from....which country takes you in....

Back to the Palestinians.....So, what are yall going to do? How about having Hamas lob some missiles over at Egypt or Syria who in the 1948 war took PALESTINIAN lands....I bet that original UN Resolution establishing BOTH an Israeli State and a Palestinian State doesnt look all that bad right about now does it? Well, sucks to be you. You want to live in peace? Get Hamas OUT. Dont want Hamas out? Want Israel destroyed? Then live with your consequences, or should I say, have your kids live with the consequences and SHUT UP.

War is hard and sometimes, Peace isnt that much easier....

I would say Hamas knows exactly what they're doing. Put weapons caches near hospitals, so when Israel destroys them the media will point out how evil Israel is to target hospitals. Build hide-outs near schools, for the same reason. It's people like this I feel sorry for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoi0TGyx_uA

"Get a clue UN - You are barely tolerated in this country (this country who houses you and gives you most of your money)."

THAT is the one bright spot in our .gov's plans to spend our way to prosperity: the money we shovel into the trough for the UN is worth less and less every day!

Yeah, and raped women are always the one at fault too!

Jeez. You need to do some more reading on the holocaust that is currently happening in Israel and has been for 60 some years.

It's called genocide.

Patricia:

How many Arabs in the Israeli Knesset? I'll tell you, 12. Arabs represent 10% of the Israeli Knesset. That's doesn't sound like genocide to me.

How many Jews in the Hamas leadership? None.

From the Hamas Charter, "The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim)."

The Hamas Charter forbids peaceful resolution, "[Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement."

Read the Hamas Charter for yourself before you go spouting off about Genocide.

The Palestinian birthrate is growing and 40% of the population is under 14. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_Palestinian_territories

That doesn't sound like genocide to me.

You need to do more reading from a much greater variety of sources.

Have to agree. If you don't want your life to suck, don't pick fights with the Israelis. The arabs have started every Arab/Israeli war since 1948 and lost every one of them. You would think they would learn.

If you mess with the bull you get the horns. If you stand next to the kid who messes with the bull you might get the horns.

I remember, on 911, turning on my television in my classroom and the Palestinians in Gaza were dancing in the streets, handing out sweets and little cakes. Now, we are supposed to feel sorry for these same folks? Not me. If there were any streets around here I'd go dance a jib myself, and hand out Juicy Fruit.

All the way back in the 60s I was in favor of booting the UN out of the US. To this day I have not yet seen one good reason for then to be here.
As to the Palestinians, I can only hope that one day they will wake up and see what Hamas is doing to them.

Patricia....raped women don't usually declare war on the rapist BEFORE the rape....and they don't usually have rockets to launch at the rapist either. Maybe you need to rethink your analogy....just sayin...

Many interesting comments, folks. Thanks, Abraham for the pointer to the Hamas charter. In return, I leave you this:

http://sabbah.biz/mt/archives/2006/05/10/the-shrinking-map-of-palestine/

It is the map of how much Palestine has shrunk since the Israel was formed.

I'm Irish. I think it is natural for me to understand how people feel when their country is invaded, and the people slaughtered. After all, Britain did exactly that to Ireland for hundreds of years.

So maybe rape isn't the right analogy here. Massive disproportionate violence against a captive civilian population, maybe? Not allowing water, food, medicine to that same captive population?

Whatever. None of us are likely to change our minds based on comments in a blog. However, only in the US are people complacent about this. The rest of the world is aghast about what is happening there.
