What's happening to "Gaza" right now is of Hamas's own deliberate design; they brought it upon "Palestine" and "Palestinians" with full aforethought and deliberation and with the full knowledge of what would eventually ensue in response to their actions directed against Israel from inside "Gaza", particularly from within areas heavily populated by innocent "Palestinans". The civilian/innocent casualties are the choosing of Hamas- Hamas deems civilian/innocent casualties to be of propaganda value to the Islamist cause, to its sworn goal of wiping out Israel; therefore, they deliberately set up "militant" positions in heavily-populated civilian/innocent areas, precisely for the purpose of having these innocent civilians fall, as guaranteed collateral, victim to the ensuing retaliatory-defensive operations on the part of Israel exercising her right thereto.
The deaths, injuries and destruction... it's all brought onto "Palestine" by Hamas Islamist radicals. This is exactly, precisely what they want... and they're the ones to be blamed therefor, not Israel. Yet witness the Big, Corporate "Mainstream" Media and the "International Community" (and most especially the "Arab/Muslim World") wrongly blaming Israel, the real victim, instead.
Ah... yes, the violins. Thank you; perfect timing- you've learned when to start 'em. Good job, orchestra. Listen to the violins play deja vu all over again ad infinitum...
Hmm... what, again, did Einstein say about the definition of insanity, something about doing the exact same thing repeatedly, expecting a different result each time, despite the reality of non-variability of overall result throughout all previous experiments?
"Israel has done all it could to preserve the ceasefire with Hamas," Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said last night. "But our desire for quiet was met with terror."We would, and certainly including myself, in such a situation of attack on Canada, be loudly, unignorably demanding, in no uncertain terms, that serious military retaliation be performed upon the enemy attacker(s) no matter where they are, no matter what the collateral casualty cost would be... collateral casualties are morally, ethically, 100% the fault of the attacker who brings them on by launching attacks directly from within innocent civilian populations. The defender assumes no responsibility for collateral damage of any kind, for it is the aggressor who assumes all risk thereof, and who absolutely must necessarily, in the name of all that is moral, ethical, rational and just, be blamed and held accountable!
Gen. Yaakov Amidror, former head of the Israeli military's research and assessment division, said no country in the world would allow its citizens to be made the target of rocket attacks without taking vigorous steps to defend them.
"If any city in Canada was under fire for eight years, can you see the Canadian government not reacting to the situation?" he said.
Yesterday's offensive began eight days after a six-month truce between Israel and the militants expired. The Israeli army says Palestinian militants have fired some 300 rockets and mortars at Israel over the past week, and in recent days, Israeli leaders had threatened to launch a major offensive.
"The time has come to fight," Barak said yesterday. "We face a period that will be neither easy nor short and will require determination and perseverance."
I see also that the Hamas bigwig Khaled Meshaal is calling for a "Third Intifada" against Israel.
Well, that's going to be difficult now that there's a wall in place to keep out those explosives-belts-wearing Muslim zombies. It's working. Why would it suddenly stop working? What, do you Hamassholes have sleeper cells inside Israel like you've got inside other countries of the Free World? Well, it'd be hard to maintain such sleeper cells in Israel, as Israel is much, much more serious about ensuring that there be none, insane political correctness be damned!
Of course, meanwhile, it must be noted that today's Putinist Russia has been, behind the scenes, arming the Islamic World with various kinds of weapons of mass destruction, including sales of short-and long-range missiles to Iran, the donation of several MiG-29 fighters to neighboring, and now-Al-Qaeda-infiltrated, Lebanon and so on and so forth, continuing its Evil Empire imperialist policies in the Middle East, with an astonishingly patient view to ultimately taking all the territory and oil for itself someday, somehow... beyond which, who knows how far they'd go?
"We talked to them (Hamas) and we told them 'please, we ask you, do not end the truce. Let the truce continue and not stop' so that we could have avoided what happened," he said in Cairo.
