Hamas criticises Gaza rocket fire


english.aljazeera.net



The Palestinian Hamas group that governs the Gaza Strip has criticised recent rocket fire directed at Israel and denied responsibility.

The recent rockets were "being fired at the wrong time" and were "not being fired by the resistance faction", a statement from the interior ministry of the Hamas government said on Thursday.

It added that its security forces would find out who was responsible, but stopped short of promising any punitive measures

Well if they are not in control of their fighters how can they claim to speak for the people? So lets just keep firing missiles. Some how I cant shake the feeling that Israel might be blamed for rockets fired at Israel.


It goes on to say


Sticking point

The Israeli question, which has long caused difficulty among warring Palestinian factions, continued to plague the groups as they tried to hammer out a power-sharing deal in Egypt on Thursday.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, said disagreement over peace talks with Israel was one of the key hurdles holding up the formation of a new unity government between Hamas and the Fatah faction led by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president.

If people are like me, then they are probably tired of the same old nonsense coming out the area and tired of the bitter split between the pro-Israeli crowd, the neutral crowd and the pro-Arab crowd, which inevitably degenerates any topic on the subject into who has the right to exist, who is committing war crimes and who has the rights to the land.....

at Uni, Exam next Tuesday, YAY me


serious note, in Palestine it seems there are many factions.
some do as they please and splinter cells from other groups who dont have direct contact with the main groups. they work on their own accord,

and dont care about their results of their actions.

anyhow thats what it looks like

Well that brings up the question of finances and weapons supply they cant just pull both out of thin air so this brings up the rather glaring question of who exactly is funding them and what is their goal.

this is no different from the IRA and real IRA.

These Organizations just like any political organization will have factions within it. It could very well be that a more militaristic faction of Hamas on its own without the main leaderships knowledge is carrying out these attacks.

Of course it could also be "sabateurs" from israel or somewhere else carrying out the attacks to incite violence.



On a side note what we need to do, is deport a large number of illegal mexicans and central americans from the US to the mid east (palestine, israel, egypt, iraq). I think that would be hilarious, and interesting to see the results.

Lets remember alot of these rockets are home made...it wouldn't take much for a peed of father or family member who's children and family have been blown to bits by the recent Israeli onslaught to try and take revenge ie fire some pitiful rockets and cross their fingers it hits somewhere.Not the right way to go about things..but force anyone into a corner with no food,home(intact home),family or medicine and watch logic and rational thought go straight out the window.

There may also be some members who have lost there families, homes & will to live and so are prepared to do whatever as revenge for their loss and dont really care much for a truce anymore.

Pretty much what solomon said but i was too slow.

When you look at the statistics, it's hardly surprising that renegade factions within Hamas and/or Gaza continue to fire rockets into Israel.


5000+ homes are now known to have been destroyed in the relentless land, sea and air bombardment, and more than 100,000 people have been left homeless.



Though Israel claimed it would target only Hamas buildings and fighters, 90+% of the casualties are now known to have been civilian, while at least a third of the 1300+ killed were children.



To add to this, UNWRA chief John Ging revealed that 500,000 people were without water during the bombardment, and that huge numbers were without electricity. All this while as many as a dozen bombs rained down on Rafah, Jabaliya and Gaza City every hour, according to local reports.

And so it goes on.

Not saying the rocket-firing is right. Just saying it's not surprising.
