Why balme Hamas when it was Isreal who broke the truce..
Till now,I was following an ostrich way of escapism by not talking about Israel-Palestine conflict..Though I read this news a few days ago,I didn’t bother to post it as I thought most of you wouldn’t care for it as this conflict is always seen as a case of Islamic terrorism.I don’t want to change your stereotyping and prejudice..Keep believing that the world is yellow,please don’t recall that it is you who is wearing yellow glasses..
I laugh and pity at people who comment passionately on newspaper comment areas..Nevermind,they are not going to change anyway..
I observe people mourning,ahem well that includes Mr Obama too when he defends Israel :
Obama said that if rockets were being fired at his home while his two daughters were sleeping, he would do everything he could to prevent it[…]
So everybody is sad that poor Israel is suffering bcoz Hamas is firing rockets into ‘its’ territory.Read this..Oh well,its an old news,that happened in November.
“Six months ago Israel asked and received a cease-fire from Hamas. It unilaterally violated it when it blew up a tunnel.A four-month ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza was in jeopardy today after Israeli troops killed six Hamas gunmen in a raid into the territory.Israeli troops crossed into the Gaza Strip late last night near the town of Deir al-Balah.
And oh,now I am going to be blamed of spreading propaganda and conspiracy..I never knew that Guardian and NewYorkTimes and Haaretz and UN Spokespersonstarted spreading muslim propaganda..I am no fan of Hamas or Fatah..But I am a human being with eyes,ears and a heart.
Israel never denied they broke the ceasefire. Only the israeli apologetics do. They only justified it by saying that the tunnel was a threat to their security. However, there was no provocation from Hamas before that Israeli incursion. Tunnels were the only way the Palestinians were breaking the Israeli blockade to smuggle food, medicine and other necessities to Gaza. Israel had a tight siege on Gaza for most of the time during the ceasefire, which by itself was a violation of the terms of the ceasefire. The Israelis allowed supplies into Gaza only after the air strikes on Saturday to reduce the reputation fallout because of the civilian casualties. The Palestinians are also entitled to self defense. If you do not want to surrender to Israeli intimidation, what would you do if you were a Palestinian?
None of the rockets fired between June 19th and December 3rd (when Israel broke the ceasefire) were fired by Hamas. The majority of the few rockets that were fired during that period, were fired by Fatah (AksaMartyrs Brigades), which is a group that is led by Palestinian president Abbas to sabotage the ceasefire with Hamas and give Israel an excuse to retaliate. Abbas is a US/Israel puppet. None of these rockets caused Israeli casualties and did very little damage. Check this Wikipedia link for a list of all rocket attacks in 2008.
