the same arguments which Israel defenders have been using for years, and which until recently you've been condemning. "It's ok to shoot at stone-throwers;" if Hamas is doing the shooting. You say: It's hard to maintain a clean safe Gaza when Israel et al "are prepared to create confusion." Wow. Sounds just like the Israeli argument that it's hard to maintain a safe, fair Israel while terrorists are trying to wreak havoc. Never mind that in Hamas's Gaza Christians have been beaten and robbed, killed, and forcibly converted to Islam, by your gun-toting, freedom-fighting heroes. Or repressing journalists and freedom of speech. As long as it's Hamas doing the oppressing, you call it "order." But read the posts from El Birawi, and Pal Defender. Thye say you're wrong about Hamas. In your infinite arrogance, you try to be more Palestinian than the Palestinians. No problem. Looks like the third intifada is going to be the intifada in Gaza against your favorite terrorist group.
