Hamas is the aggressor. Its mission statement is to annihilate Israel. Israel’s mission is to survive as a state, open to Muslims and Christians, but specifically as the homeland of Jews. So why are American leftists supporting Hamas? Where is our “free press?” Every news report on the situation begins with a subtle condemnation of Israel couched in words like “some could say,” or “it has been said,” so they can hide behind the weasel words. Muslims are slaughtering each other through out the middle east, yet they are safe from their brother’s wrath in Israel. Stand up for the truth. Support Israel.
It’s come to body counts—Hamas lobs hundreds of rockets at Israel which are effectively stopped by the “iron dome.” Israel selectively targets sites in Gaza, protection is ineffective, so more Palestinians have died than Israelis—many are children. Does this make the Palestinian cause (the destruction of the Jewish state and all Jews) just?
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said Hamas started the conflict on July 8 with about 10,000 rockets. Since then, the militants have fired more than 2,600 rockets and mortars toward Israel and Israeli forces have destroyed about 3,000, estimated Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF's spokesman.
