The Israeli military is doing all they can to avoid civilian casualties in Gaza. Hamas is doing all they can to target civilians
(Washington Post) A bus bombing Wednesday morning brought the Gaza conflict to central Tel Aviv, as intensified fighting between Hamas militants and the Israeli military raised doubts about the prospects of a durable cease-fire being sought by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and others in hectic rounds of shuttle diplomacy.
After flickers of hope on Tuesday that a cease-fire was imminent, the Israeli assault on Gaza early Wednesday instead appeared to have escalated. Israeli airstrikes targeted ministerial buildings of Hamas, the militant Islamist group that rules Gaza, as well as dozens of other sites. Ten rockets were fired into Israel, according to an Israeli Defense Forces spokesman.
In Tel Aviv, an explosion on a bus wounded 10 people, Israeli authorities said. At least three were taken to a hospital with critical injuries, according to a medical official at the site of the blast across from an entrance to Israel’s military headquarters.
This is what terrorists do, intentionally target civilians. Yet, for some reason, Liberals here in the USA and around the world support these people and call Israel a terrorist nation. All they want is to be left alone.
In Gaza, some residents greeted news of the attack in Tel Aviv with praise, although Hamas stopped short of claiming responsibility.
“We told you #IDF that our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are,” wrote a spokesman for Hamas’s military arm on Twitter. “You opened the Gates of Hell on Yourselves.”
News of the attack was announced over mosque loudspeakers in Gaza. Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, told the Associated Press that the attack was to be expected.
Animals, killing in the name of their religion. Just imagine how many people they could feed in Gaza with the money they spend on the rockets Hamas launches into civilian areas of Israel.
Hamas fires rockets at Israel for three years.Silence.Israel finally has enough and fights back.And NOW the world says, “Cease Fire.”
