*Didn't click link*
First, I think you need to change the title, It's not "Gaza" firing rockets, it's Hamas. There is a big difference.
After seeing the now (probably) infamous baby image, I am reluctant to click any link. At least you gave me the option with a warning, the person who
posted the baby image didn't.
And having seen that image I don't need to see anything else to convince me of why Hamas continues to launch rockets.
Having said that, Hamas are idiots for continuing.
Just as Israel are idiots for attacking Gaza in an attempt to "end the attacks on Israel". It won't do that, they know it, I know it, everyone with
any intelligence knows it. It wasn't about the rockets.
Hamas are giving Israel every excuse it needs to murder the people in Gaza, as if it needed an excuse. I am sure that if they didn't have this as an
ecuse they would have found a way around it, like sending in IDF to launch rockets on Israel and blaming Hamas.
The firing of rockets from Gaza by Hamas is what is allowing other idiots to excuse what Israel is doing to the people there. If Hamas cared at all
about the people they wouldn't fire a rocket again. They'd reach out to Obama, Brown, Sarkozy, the UN and every other nation and group and request
open and clear discussion.
Israel would have gained sympathy and support by being the victim of Hamas rockets. Instead they are now war criminals for their actions.
Hamas would gain support and sympathy if they were not firing rockets at innocent people in Israel.
At this time, the only victims in all of this are the innocent people in Gaza who neither fire rockets at Israel or deserve the wrath if their
disproportionate retaliation, and the innocent people in Israel who never did anything directly to the people in Gaza. Many of them now entirely
reject what their government has done in Gaza.
1. Hamas should stop.
2. Israel should stop.
3. The people should be given the aid and support they desperately need.
4. There should be international observers and mediators on the borders of Gaza charged with the protection of the people there against attack by
Israel, and the confiscation of arms going into Gaza from other states.
5. Israel should be charged with war crimes.
6. The IDF leaders and the Israeli government should face prosecution and imprisonment for their actions.
7. Captured Hamas fighters should also face international law.
Throughout this time international mediation led by the UN should continue.
This is the only way forward. As long as Hamas fire rockets they give Israel reason to attack the people in Gaza. Remove the reason, and you remove
any excuse they have amongst the international community.
I stand by my statement that every nation with a conscience should expel their Israeli ambassadors. They are accomplices to a hateful government which
uses manipulation and violence.
