Weary Gazans have learned to expect the worst

Comments (6)

Maybe the Gazans should halt the rockets. Then there would be no war, not shortages, and no deaths. Seems rather simple, really.

Poor weary Gazans. Perhaps they’d be less weary if they didn’t persist in electing a terrorist group to govern them.

Where is the United Nations or the Nato or the Middle East peace keepers, how come they are not there before it gets worst like it was during Arafat regim when tanks were rolling in Bethelhem. It must be understood that Jerusalem is also for Christians and Jews and Muslems which must be an international temple city.

I fully understand the Gazan citizens concerns and fears in seeing the Israeli air strikes. I wish the Gazan citizens could recognize that Hamas, a militant faction, began this bombardment by sending rockets into Israel with no care as to where that rocket might strike, just that the rocket struck, doing as much harm is possible.

Neither Gazans or Pakastino people are the enemies of Israel. Hamas is the enemy. Hamas are the ones firing rockets, indiscriminately into areas of Israel Israel is retaliating with power against the Hamas rocket launching sites and the Hamas building and offices, as Israel should do.

I question, as a US citizen, not a Jew but a baptized Methodist whether our current administration would respond as Israel has if someone began bombarding our country. Somehow I do not have faith in my government to protect me.

Weary Gazans? What about the weary Israelis? Israel doesn’t fire indiscrimiately on Gazans, so they are not up all night worrying that the Israelis are going to attck them.

The Israelis, however, are constantly on guard for Hamas rocketfire. In fact, Hamas has lobbed 800 missiles into Israel since January.

It is Israelis who are sleepless, not Gazans.

Boycott Israel!

This outlaw state builds settlements on stolen land daily and the world and it’s institutions sit by and look the other way. Hypocrisy can not be tolerated.

The Palestinians have a right to defend themselves and resist occupation and oppresion. Who really believes that the US/UN/EU process is genuine. They are all stinking, racist, reactionary Likudnkiks! Or, bought/intimidated by them.

Whre can we find out how to boycott Israel, the Outlaw State?
