Hamas has just fired three hundred rockets at Israeli Neighborhoods. Not aiming for anything remotely military, they were dedicated to killing civilians not combatants. A cease fire has been agreed to by Bibi Netanyahu much to the chagrin of other Israeli leaders, who follow the dictum “Never negotiate with terrorists.” Israeli retaliation has focused on hard targets in the Hamas organization. The stunning silence from the international community is disturbing but expected. Anti-Semitism is the safest stance to assume in the United Nations security council. No national leaders short of the white house have said a word of condemnation for the rocket attack.
Possession of disputed territories is not the aim of the terrorist organization. Palestine is a red herring. 99% of disputed territories were handed of over to Yasser Arafat and he refused them. Now that Arafat is no more it falls to the Palestinian authority (Hamas) to negotiate with Israel but that is the rub. All they want is every Jew dead. They do not fight for the possession of territory as the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is, as it has been defined in the Koran for fourteen hundred years. Kill Jews. This command was carried as the last message on Mohammed’s dying breath.
