We have passed 1,000 dead Palestinians. How many more?
Very moral argument - bless you and continue writing the article is
This article has impressed and moved me. Paradoxically, it came to my
mind that if such a statement is possible in a major media, it means a
justification for defending the existence of the state of Israel. Any
author publishing such comments would be thrown into prison in any other
state between Morocco and India. But yes, you're right, Israel has lost
a huge amount of support in the eyes of the world.
Ms. Haas is correct in arguing that the death of Palestinian civilians
is a tragedy, but as usual she has ignored the fact that it is the Hamas
which has so callously engineered their suffering. Had she covered the
allied bombing on German cities in 1945 her reporting might have reached
the same conclusion- only it would have been the Allies that she judged
so harshly while giving a free pass to the Nazis. She would have ignored
the conquest of Europe, the ideological agenda of Nazism and the
Holocaust in order to make her point that the Germans were the victims
of American and British immorality. The simple truth is that the Hamas
is a terrorist organization whose avowed purpose is the destruction of
Israel, which purposely and proudly targets Israelis civilians and which
is directly responsible for every single Palestinian casualty.
The evilness of Hamas is obvious to everyone here and I'm sure Ms Hass
doesn't deny it. Still, it is no justification for the IDF's high
tolerance for civilian casualties. For example, to kill a Hamas
operative, Ahmad Sahmoud, the IDF bombed a house, killed 25 people,
including 3 pregnant women and 19 children! Is this morally justified?
How much was Israel protected by the death of this Hamas operative?
Aren't there other Hamas operatives to take his place? Won't this
bombing be a fantastic tool for Hamas's recruitment department?
No matter who does it. Not everyone hates Israel _ but Israel must give
Palestine back and there will be peace. Even then it will take
generations for those damaged by this holocaust.
Every Palestinian death from Israel i air attack, army or naval
bombardment is the result of a conscious decision of an Israeli
military official to bomb or shell a location. The same applies to every
Hamas Palestinian who firs a rocket towards Israel, it is a conscious
decision to do the act to cause terror or death. What makes the case
bad for Israel is the hidden agenda to cleanse the land by creating
conditions that will enhance an exodus from Gaza as son as people can
find a way out.
I know how does it feel.. more you dig more truth uncovered and it goes
on an on generations to come. being a member of a perpetrator nation
hurts as much as being the victim, maybe even more because you start
carrying in your DNA a gene that makes all your children and grand
children born with a one big hollow in their soul . so wake up, Israel
and stop the massacres while you can for the sake of future generations.
Israel is largely responsible for Hamas in the first place... don't
forget that too.
... from digging unnecessary tunnels of terror directed against the
Jewish State. You still have that final draft of that article don't
you? Please post it to HaAretz ASAP as we can't wait to read more of
your highly objective writing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to
see your crocodile tears shed once more.
Stop building attack tunnels instead of a civilization.
