Obama - Israel has every right to defend itself from GAZA missile attacks


President Barack Obama said Sunday that Israel has “every right” to defend itself against missile attacks by militants inside Gaza but warned that escalating the offensive with Israeli ground troops could undermine any hope of a peace process with the Palestinians.

"Let's understand what the precipitating event here that's causing the current crisis and that was an ever-escalating number of missiles that were landing not just in Israeli territory but in areas that are populated, and there's no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders,” Obama said at press conference in Thailand at the start of a three-nation tour in Asia.

“So we are fully supportive of Israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians."


This might be the first thing Obama has said that I fully agree with.

Maybe I'm a paranoid conspiracist (well .. I post here so I must be) ... but look at the last Obama sentence. He said Israel has a right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. Does that mean that if HAMAS targets Israels military then Obama would think it's legit? Or did I read too much into his statement? I'm wondering ....

It's already well known DC fully supports Israel, not like they needed to regurgitate this message. That said, I'm sure Hamas would love to target the IDF/IAF but they can't because their weapons are terrible. Hamas can barely kill an Israeli citizen.

Hamas is complete & the Palestinian people should vote them out ASAP because the only results they can produce is the death of their own people via Israeli strikes.

Israel is an apartheid state in which European settlers established themselves and their cruel official policies of racial segregation involving political, legal, and economic discrimination against the indigenous Palestinian people.

It's unfortunate that a group of people have to employ violence in a desperate attempt to try and preserve their natural human rights. But an apartheid philosophy should never be tolerated by the people of this world, under any circumstances.

F.T.G.

Hamas is the worst thing that the Palestinians could have. Hamas doesn't care about Palestinians. It uses them as human shields. It steals their donation aid money. Get rid of Hamas and the Palestinians could easily see a raising of their living standard ... there wouldn't be any more Israeli rockets being fired at the Hamas rocket launchers and there would be a whole lot more aid money actually getting to the Palestinians instead of the Hamas thieves.

Try to realize world, it's not "Obama" who constructs these statements or thoughts. It's the negative elite, and his self-serving handlers who provide this fool with the play script. Power junkies pull the strings of puppet politicians. Obama is nothing more than a cheap clown who's opted to trade his soul for short-lived fame and fortune, in this lifetime.

we all know that if Obama does not say that it can become and remain the president of USA. the same is true about EU.
supporting Israel and besieging the other means supporting war ! and carnage !!
GAZA has any right to defend itself and reach defensive weapons.
especially weapons that can pass the satan dome ! this is the first step for peace !!

it is really vain to think that Israel care about anybody in this world ! especially Palestinians !! they want to annex Gaza to their Israel !!! Israel wants the whole middle east. do not you people see the well equipped colonialism machine called Israel. do not see it has collected the world's best technologies for it's satan dome so that it can do whatever it wants freely !?
and some Nerveless Arabs are sending troops and weapons for the terrorists in Syria !!! oh it is pathetic !!! non popular terrorists in Syria are killing Arabs and Muslims by the money of Arab countries and besieged people in Gaza should be blamed for their wills and resistance against humiliation and colonialism of Israehel

Just like America had the right to defend itself against the native Americans who were here before them. It's always the same. Invade someplace, claim you are defending yourself when the indigenous population gets upset that they are being slaughtered. Your argument and Obama's is BS!!!!

Ever think about the fact that Hamas doesn't want peace because of that? Ever think ....

Dude. That doesn't make sense. They GAVE IT AWAY. If they wanted to 'annex it', they wouldn't have given it away, they would have kept it under their control.

So... when Hamas fires rockets into Israel.. It's perfectly OKAY for Israel to bomb the living hell out of them.

But when Israel bombs the hell out of Gaza and the West Bank... its NOT okay for Hamas to retaliate???


Logic????

Obama's a moron. He's been spraying missiles in other countries with his drones for a long time.. A far greater number that fell in Israel. Now, from what he said, those countries have the right to defend themselves? Picture that in the U.S. Having all those countries retaliating. They would have the right would they not? People are being fed BS again just to make it look good

If Hamas really wanted to take care of the Palestinian people in Gaza, they would use the hundreds of millions of dollars they receive annually in foreign financial aid to invest in the well being of their people instead of buying weapons and rocket launchers to try and murder Israeli civilians.

The Palestinians living in the West Bank under the moderate leadership of Mahmoud Abbas of the Fatah political party are far more prosperous and enjoy a higher standard of living.

The people of Gaza who voted for Hamas are now living with consequences.
