Reader comment on item: Debating the Morality of Israel & Hamas in Battle

Submitted by jerome (Canada), Jul 14, 2014 at 12:47

Israel is" slaughtering" women and children according to this woman. Really ? Why does Hamas put their citizens deliberately in harms way?

No mention of the warnings given by Israel prior to bombing- leaflets , phone calls.( documented / photographed)

No mention that Hamas forces people to stay in harms way - uses them as shields

No mention that if Israel desired to slaughter civilians it could just flatten gaza - why does Israel not just do that instead of sending in ground troops.

No mention that there very valid reasons for monitoring goods into gaza - because they are often bombs/missiles.

No mention of the fact that Israel treats gazan casualties in hospitals and continues to supply food medical supplies and power to the gazans.

No mention of the culpability of the terrorists who control gaza in not seeing to the positive well being of their people, ie building infrastructure, the economy , meaningful education etc

No mention of the hate taught to children, the charter of hamas to destroy jews and Israel, the misinformation and propaganda about the geography of the area eg leaving Israel out.

She keeps on talking OCCUPATION - even despite Israel having pulled out of gaza in 2005 ( the "industrious" palestinians promptly destroyed all the infrastructure)

Why do the arab states not help the palestinians - no one wants them that is why- they are refused entry and work in quite a few "friendly" countries.

Israel decries the loss of life - the mothers of the murdered boys comforted the palestinian woman whose child was murdered. the palestinians called the murderers heroes and would support their actions again.

Israel ARRESTED the jews who murdered the palestinian boy.

Israel calls for peace constantly and has NEVER attacked without provocation or preemptively to prevent loss after attack.

The palestinians and 5 nations attacked Israel on day one of its formation - where was the OCCUPATION then? Golda Meir offered peace and it was rejected as has every other offer from Israel, because the terrorists do not want peace , they just want NO ISRAEL.

Arguing with dyed in the wool left radicals is like shooting yourself in the head over and over...

Saying that things are not equal is stupid - this is not a game - if you attack someone more powerful dont expect them not to use all the force available to defend themselves.

That enough jews are not dying because either the rockets fired at them are inadequate or because of Israels iron dome being so effective is a more stupid argument.

Israel proves that it does not INTEND to kill civilians , whereas HAMAS goes out of its way to kill Israelis and jews in INDISCRIMINATE attacks.

This woman also seems to overlook the massive trauma faced by israelis when the threat of rockets is announced by sirens- no society will put up with this.

She also overlooks the fact that ISRAEL could be a great ally in building their country up and improving their lives instead of being treated as an enemy.

But the agenda of HAMAS and these other groups is plain-ERADICATE ISRAEL , EXTERMINATE JEWS.

She ignores that Hamas; charter calls for this and will never recognize a jewish state.
