Israel is being held hostage, but not by the Palestinians, and the Palestinians are not being held hostage by Israel. They are being held hostage by
Hamas and their goal of a strict Islamic state and the complete destruction and removal of Israel.
Don't beleive me? Check their charter.
Hezbollah has recently made comments about Israel, and I am not even sure why since Israel has withdrawn its forces from Lebanon. By extension
Hezbollah's goal of driving Israel out of Lebanon, hwich has now been accomplished, should end there attacks, yet it doesnt.
A person has to ask themselves if you are going to launch a rocket at your "enemy", you would chose your targets - Military. Launching a rocket at a
city with the inetent on killing innocent civlians accomplishes nothing but a continuation fo the cycle.
If Hamas was not a bunch of cowards, and truely held to their goal, they would not launch attacks by using Schools, Mosques or heavily civlian
populated areas to launch these attacks. They do because they know any response will result in a run up of Palestinian Civilian body count.
Hamas has achieved their goal in Gaza, which is the removal of Israeli forces. Israel withdrew from that area, Hamas won, yet they continue to launch
attacks. Why? Because of their charter. If peace breaks out, then what will Hamas or Hezbollah do?
Its like the actions of the Iranian Government when they pick a Western related topic and blame them for thier intrnal problems.
Without Israel or the US as an enemy they can blmae their problems on, the people in these areas would see what HAmas and Hezbollah actually are. A
group of cowards who are intent onkilling innocent people.
Israel gets taken to task for their actions on the Floatilla by the UN. Arab countries and groups are screaming for Israel to be held accountibler,
including Hamas and Hezbollah.
So when the UN released its report on the assasination of the Lebanese Prime Minister.which holds Hezbollah responsbiel for it, HEzbollah goes
bonkers. They tell there people if anyone agrees with the report they would be labeled as a collaborator with the Israel and the US and be killed.
They hold their own people hostage and blame everyone else for it.
