Hamas is starving Gaza. Apparently the land the settlers left behind, which has still not been turned to a peaceful use by pals, is not enough for their target practice. First choice is border crossings. Haniyeh admitted as much when he told Israel that he couldn't get the 'splinter groups' to stop the kassams, but since Hamas was responsible for the mortar attacks on the crossings he could guarantee those would stop if Israel would grant him a cease fire. If they want the crossings closed, w/ the resultant decrease in supplies, who made that choice? If they want to martyr their own people, why is that more my business than Darfur? The UN excuses all ARAB/MUSLIM murderers. but Israel mustn't disrupt Farfur or his little buddies, right?
