Reader comment on item: Solving the "Palestinian Problem" [with the No-State Solution]
in response to reader comment: Nura, a new Hamas strategy

Submitted by Nura (United States), Jan 21, 2009 at 00:35

Hamas hides among the Palestinians in Gaza, and has fired more than 6,800 missiles at Israel since 2006. Prior to 2006, Fatah ruled Gaza and were defeated by Hamas.

If Hamas is the elected Government in Gaza, then naturally they should have an army or minimally a police force. Where in the world is the police force of the people outside the country? Where the hell do you expect them to be in Syria, Lebanon? Then you would really call them cowards.

I would not trust the sources of Zionist propagandist. 6,800 mostly homemade missiles! How many Jews has died from these 6,800 missiles infidel? Fatah was democratically defeated by Hamas.

Nura finds it most pleasing for Hamas to fire missiles at Israel and kill Jews, but protests when Israel retaliates. The new rule of Nura is; Hamas attacks and murders Jews, and Jews die and do not retaliate against Hamas.

I don't know what planet you live on, but an occupied people have a fundamental right to resist. These people were shoved into a prison, concentration camp, and you expect them to remain silent? I do not advocate the killing of any civilians, however, when does the occupying force, or greater power have the same moral standing as the occupied or lower power? You should brush up on your ethics. Super powers have greater moral responsibility and certainty does not have the right to kill over 700 civilians with outlawed, unconventional weapons, for the deaths of 3 Israeli's… yes, numbers matter. The fact that you are defending this blatant crime on humanity is a testament to your moral corrosion. This is the reason why Israel has the most condemnations that ANY other nation in the world.

This is not a new strategy; Muslims attacked Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967, 1970, 1973 and the attacks continue until December 2008. No doubt, Hamas will soon resume firing missiles at Israel, Jews will die; And Nura will celebrate.

I would rather say were they were defending their homes considering that Israel is none other than a colonial power. I guess should have just given up their homes and lives without protest. You know nothing about the history of this conflict.

The conflict will never stop in the Middle East as long at Israel exists. It was the sole purpose of their creation. That is another debate.
