Again with the fighting in the Middle East?
Indeed it is happening again. Hamas, the resident military of Gaza, initiated the latest battle by firing rocket after rocket into Israel – without provocation. This past Sunday, while the world was watching Germany win the World Cup, 130 rockets were shot into Israel. In all of 2014, I’m not sure if anyone knows how many rockets have been fired at Israel – shooting at civilians sending people to almost have to live in their bomb shelters, but the numbers are in the thousands.
Now, after Israel accepted the Egyptian brokered ‘cease fire’ and ceased military operations, Hamas fired 50 more rockets into Israel, less than 3 hours after the cease fire was agreed to – and yet, the media, once again, calls for Israel to use restraint.
But what I don’t see is the condemnation of the barbaric actions of Hamas:
· Command and Control, along with rocket installations and munitions storage are placed in Mosques. (considered Holy places in the Qur’an).
· Women, children and elderly are used as ‘human shields’.
· Hamas rockets are aimed at civilians, not military installations.
If this was happening to any other country, especially the U.S., the media would be crying foul, and insisting that the ‘world community’ do something about it! But no, the only thing we hear is the ‘heavy hand of Israel’ and ‘exercise restraint'.
Question: What is the difference between Sodom Hussein using ‘human shields’ and Hamas using ‘human shields’? Answer: Israel wasn't attacking Sodom Hussein.
Yep; as long as Israel is trying to protect her people, ‘human shields’ are OK for Hamas.
