    Israel is the one that bombed UN shelters, hospitals, leveled homes, attacked fleeing civilians, with any charges of human shields unproven. Does Hamas hate Israel and want it destroyed? You bet. But what is wants now is an end to the blockade that does not even allow enough food to sustain gaza. Netten-yahoo must deal now because the US and UN have put a halt to his allowance for atrocities and Israel expects an end to Hamas scud glorified fireworks terror campaign.

    “Israel is the one that bombed UN shelters, hospitals, leveled homes, attacked fleeing civilians, with any charges of human shields unproven.”

    Once a civilian building is used for military purposes (launching rockets, storing rockets, used as a command center, etc.) it is a legitimate military target under international law.

    Hamas’s use of human shields is well known. Hamas has openly encouraged citizens to protect rocket sites, and to stay in their homes after the IDF has warned them to leave. A search of Youtube can provide you with video of Hamas television broadcasts where they make these statements. Hamas has even been recoded on video beating Gazans for fleeing their homes after being warned to do so by the IDF.

    You seem to turn a blind eye to the evils perpetrated by Hamas, while painting unintended civilian casualties caused by Israel striking at terror infrastructure as nefarious.

    To quote Israeli twitter user @Marc_Leibowitz:
    Hamas tries really hard to kill Israel’s children & usually fails. Israel tries really hard not to kill Gaza’s children but sometimes does.

    “But what is wants now is an end to the blockade that does not even allow enough food to sustain gaza.”

    What Hamas wants is to import more weapons so it can replenish its stockpiles. When Hamas previously asked for cement they promised to use it to build public buildings like schools, mosques, and hospitals. Instead they created a multi-million dollar terror tunnel network that went for miles in to Israel for the purpose of launching a massive bombing and kidnapping campaign.

    “Netten-yahoo must deal now because the US and UN have put a halt to his allowance for atrocities …”

    Prime Minister Netanyahu will do what is in the best interest of Israel and the Israeli people. Because it’s obvious no one else is going to.

    If the Israelis laid down their arms and said they would never make war again, Israel would be destroyed and the Israeli population would be exterminated. If the Palestine Arabs laid down their arms and said they would never make war again, they would gain their statehood and there would be peace.

    “… an end to Hamas scud glorified fireworks terror campaign.”

    28 dead in Israel, 1900 injured, among them Arab-Israelis and non-Israelis. A significant number of Gazans killed by malfunctioning rockets launched at Israel. Israelis constantly living under threat, running to shelters. That’s some fireworks campaign.
