Reader comment on item: Pushing for a Ceasefire

Submitted by jerome (Canada), Jul 19, 2014 at 16:15

Hamas has the gall to laud their captive citizens as being excessively brave for being human shields and therefore deserving of the world's respect when they are inevitably killed.

The fact of Israeli warnings is also minimized by detractors of Israel saying there is nowhere for them to go anyway!

This macabre logic wins the hearts and minds of the western world - especially Europe - where condemnation of Israel is second nature to the new found nazis / islamists and the ever present latent hatred of jews that epitomizes Europe.

It is clear that Israel can not win the propaganda war while babies are being killed.

So it is a stale mate again because HAMAS cannot defeat Israel militarily- and they know that - so they drum up propaganda endlessly for their puppetmasters in Iran.

Israel must not be swayed in its task - it has been given an unprecedented opportunity to severely crush hamas and the infrastructure of terror they have built since Israel left the area in 2005.
