THE HEARTBREAK OF GAZA

By Pete Moore On May 15th, 2018

It appears that at least ten of the killed Gazan Demonstrators of Peace were members of Hamas.

Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

  1. It may very well be the case that members of Hamas are among those killed. What should be determined is what we’re they were doing at the time that justified use of deadly force against them, and whether killing them provides Hamas with propoganda far more powerful for them than any attack.

  2. From Pete’s link.

    “In our time,” wrote George Orwell in 1946, “political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible.” British colonialism, the Soviet gulag and America’s dropping of an atomic bomb, he argued, “can indeed be defended, but only by arguments which are too brutal for most people to face.” So how do people defend the indefensible? Through “euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness.” By obscuring the truth.

    So it is, more than 70 years later, with Israeli policy toward the Gaza Strip. The truth is too brutal to honestly defend. Why are thousands of Palestinians risking their lives by running toward the Israeli snipers who guard the fence that encloses Gaza? Because Gaza is becoming uninhabitable. That’s not hyperbole. The United Nations says that Gaza will be “unlivable” by 2020, maybe sooner.

    Hamas bears some of the blame for that: Its refusal to recognize Israel, its decades of terrorist attacks and its authoritarianism have all worsened Gaza’s plight. Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority bears some of the blame too. So does Egypt.

  3. It’s an organised protest and as Hamas are the elected administration of Gaza it would be surprising if Hamas were not there.

    It also negates the ‘Hamas is lining up the cameras and then sending the dupes charging at the fire’ propaganda bollocks that you were spouting last night.

    But hey, some killed were from Hamas and a few from Islamic Jihad so just forget about the other forty odd massacered who weren’t so then.

  4. //Hamas bears some of the blame for that: Its refusal to recognize Israel,//

    Whereas of course Israel has no problem recognising the Palestinian state.

  5. It’s not a protest It’s a pack of animals worked up in a bloodlust frenzy

  6. There was a protest demonstration near me last night.

    Most were Arabs / Arab Americans but not all. There were also a few anti Israel Orthodox Jews, who oppose the existence of a Jewish state. ( really )

  7. were they throwing bricks and molotov cocktails…. no

    Did any get shot by the police…. no

  8. They were escorted by the NYPD.

    A lot of noise, nothing bad.

  9. an honest protest… god bless their right to do so.

  10. Hamas are the elected administration of Gaza it would be surprising if Hamas were not there.

    Well of course, not since they murdered their fellow Palestinians from the Fatah party.

  11. Great news from Gaza!

    Hamas is refusing humanitarian aid.

    Great. Life must be alright there. We can cut the aid budget. They don’t want it. And to be honest, we don’t want to give it.

  12. Not since they murdered their fellow Palestinians from the Fatah party.

    Yes Mark, I’m sure Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine and Palestinian National Authority, would agree.

  13. Busted 🙂

    Watch Israeli-funded group HIAS in America demand unlimited Refugees in Defiance of Voters

    How does this contrast with 60 dead, unarmed people shot near a border fence? What would the jews of America say if Trump ordered the National Guard to open fire on infiltrators (the Israeli term for invaders) from Honduras?

  14. It seems like shooting more than fifty dead didn’t satisfy Israeli bloodlust.

    Airstrikes in respons to alleged machine gun fire.
