    The trump card is PR: rattle the cage and make known, all over the world, the human rights violations by Hamas in Gaza. Until now Israel has diplomatically kept quiet about them, bc this is Abbas-adm.*s responsibilty to do. But as we see, it doesn*t care the least about the Gazans. Therefore it is our moral obligation to reveal Hamas for what it is and make its cruelty known all over the world, as we are commanded by our religion: "do not stand idle and quiet at our fellowmen*s blood". I question the Western "humanists*" humanitarianism: they play "humanists" only when it comes to criticize Israel, but close their eyes from the gross barbaric HR violations by Hamas like public stonings of women, torture, executions without trials etc.. These "humanists" are HYPOCRITS! Israel, once the horrors of Hamas terror-rule over the Gazans is revealed, the entire world *ll feel appalled and pressure *ll be put on the leaders of the world to free Gaza from Hamas tyranny.
