Hundreds of Palestinians in the West Bank protested Israel’s military operation in the Gaza Strip on Friday, as an 18th day of fighting in the coastal territory claimed the life of an Israeli soldier, an Islamic Jihad official and more Palestinian civilians.
Protesters waving the green flag of Hamas marched through the center of Ramallah, calling on Israeli forces to get out of Gaza and urging the leaders of the Fatah movement, a longtime rival of Hamas, to support Gaza’s Islamist leaders. WSJ July 25, 2014
Excuse me, but wasn’t it Hamas that started all this? Isn’t it Hamas that is the instigator? Isn’t it Hamas that initially sent rockets indiscriminately into civilians? Who dug the tunnels to be used to attack Israel? Exactly what are these protestors protesting, a country defending itself?
Of course, there is blindness to any compromise solution on both sides, but you would think that after sixty plus years intelligent people would figure out that violence doesn’t work. Too bad as much energy doesn’t go into finding a way to create a Palestinian State with security for Israel.
