Reader comment on item: Surprising Support for Israel, not Hamas
in response to reader comment: Thank you. It's About Time

Submitted by Ameer Labeeb Hassan (United States), Jul 28, 2014 at 00:01

I'm very familiar with Jewish pain and suffering during the Nazi Holocaust as a student of history. I am familiar with the barbarity of Himmler and the SS. My race of people have too, suffered genocide, 119,000,000 alone in the Middle Passage. But the Palestinian people have to not support HAMAS. I also understand the Israeli's don't want to show any humanitarian kindness to Palestinians because there is a lack of trust between the two. Kindnss such as allowing them to export what they produce so they can have something of a productive life. Israeli's feel that economic power on the part of Palestinians would translate to military power, so they will continue to oppress them.

This being the case, HAMAS will continue to attack Israel. It is an unfortunate situation between two People's who claim to have A RELIGION OF PEACE, but they can't stop killing each other. HAMAS launched the rockets first, and I believe every people has a natural right of self defense. It is unfortunate that the Palestinian Authority has no control over organizations like HAMAS or Islamic Jihad, but the people need to not let them use their homes as command nodes. That is why I said Palestinians have to be responsible for their own grief. I hope you really hear me...

As-Salaam-Alaikum, Shalom, Peace Be With You.
