The Hypocrisy of The Israel/Hamas Conflict

Hamas Rocket Attack

Hamas Rocket Attack

Once again we see the complete hypocrisy of the Press when it comes to fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. It’s really the same old story of Hamas firing rockets into Israel and then the Israeli’s fight back, but all we hear in the news and tabloids is “Those Poor Palestinians”.

As usual the papers and news reports are all about the number of Palestinian civilians especially children, killed or wounded with a one-line mention of the Israeli casualties. There have not been many because Hamas couldn’t hit a bull in the fanny with a bag of rice as Frank Sinatra once said. I even saw one report greatly emphasizing that a disabled Palestinian child had been killed in an Israeli attack – huge emphasis on disabled!

Typical biased reporting:

What Would YOU Do?

What Would YOU Do?

It is high time the Press in general got the point that Hamas start these conflicts to deliberately provoke the retaliation that inevitably follows from Israel. It is part of their tactic to gain headlines, and most of all, sympathy from the simple-minded among us, of which there are many.

The truth is, if they did not fire the rockets, Israel would have no reason to attack them. This is part of the propaganda war that has been going on for decades in the Middle East. Hamas don’t care a fig for the number of their citizens who get killed in these spats because they are getting what they want: World Sympathy!

Rocket ThreatYou can bet your life Hamas will call for a ceasefire very soon, but not for the reasons you suppose. It will be because they have used up their entire stock of rockets and need to rearm. Once again rockets will be smuggled into Gaza by way of the tunnels from Egyptian territory, and when they have sufficient, it will start all over again. This scenario has been repeated more than a dozen times over the last decade, but still many outsiders, including the Press, are too dumb to see it.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee people, your sympathy for Hamas is playing right into their hands. So far as the Palestinian people are concerned, they voted in the terrorist Hamas to govern them and they are the ones who can get them out. They could have put an end to all this unnecessary suffering by demanding an election for a new government.

Hamas is not willing to enter into negotiations for peace unless they can carry their guns to the table. They want to destroy Israel and return Palestine back to its pre-1948 borders. This will never happen, but their continued fight against Israel does get them money, aid and arms from sympathetic states like Iran.

It is clear that neither America, Britain, Europe or the United Nations can stop the bloodshed until Hamas is willing to negotiate.

So long as a terrorist organization like Hamas controls Gaza there is no hope of peace between the Palestinians and Israel, and you can take that to the bank! Many are dismayed at the Israeli attacks against these people, but look at it this way, if you kept getting bitten by a mosquito would leave it alone or take a swipe at it? I believe the answer lies in the latter!

As a final note, let me say that I am not Israeli, and I have no preference for either side in this dispute. I just think we need some balanced reporting on such subjects.

It’s time for a bit of common sense on this issue!
