Israeli airstrikes pound down Gaza, and kill over 300+ Palestinians-most of which were civilians. The Israeli government said this was in retaliation for Hamas' escalating rocket attacks on Israel. So far, I could only find one Israeli who was killed by Palestinian rocket attacks in the last month or so, and that person lived in the southern Israeli town of Netivot. Israel's government justifies their massacre of innocent Palistinian people living in Gaza, by saying that one of their Israeli people were killed when Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel killed him. So, now Israel has declared outright war on Gaza and all the Palestinians for what Hamas, and a few Palestinian militants did. Israel's punishment of all Palestinians is an unfair conclusion in all of them Middle East mess. However, whose to stop all of this insanity? Not the United Nations-that's for sure. The only thing the United Nations has done so far is call on the phone and say, "stop it." So, why does this organization even exist in the first place? Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud Barak told CNN news that Israel's military objective was to inflict a major blow on Hamas militants in Gaza-however, as of Sunday American time, Israel has declared all out war on Gaza, and is even considering calling up over 7000 ground troops, too. Ehud Barak told CNN that they wanted to change Hamas' behavior. However, the majority of the world is watching this in dismay, and accusing Israel of genocide, because although Israel claims they are targetting Hamas, and Palestinian militants, so far more innocent civilians have been killed than Hamas/Palestinian militant. And, most of these Palestinian civilians are forced to live in deplorable conditions like the bombed down rubble of houses, or out in the open like stray animals. And, many of them died because medical personal didn't even have the basic supplies and equipment to treat them with. Israel's military were ordered to continue their brute military might, and reign of airstrikes on Gaza until further notice. And, although the majority of the world does not condone what Israel is doing, no world leader has spoken out against Israel's actions, or tried to do anything about it. Instead, everyone is turning a blind eye on this ongoing tit for tat deadly dispute, and the body count of innocent Palestinians continues to climb into the hundreds. As for Hamas and the Palestinian militants-well, they are wrong for firing rockets into Israel-inferior rockets at that, which seldom even hit their targets with accuracy. A perfect example of this is when a rocket fired by Palestinian militants on December 26, 2008-which was aimed at Israel-fell short of its target hitting and killing two Palestinian girls ages five and thirteen. These little girls deaths were senseless, and could have been avoided. After Hamas and Palestinian militants fire their rockets into Israel, they knew they had to move away from their position, because they knew that Israel would fire on their grid coordinance in retaliation-regardless if Hamas and Palestinian militants used sleazy guerilla tackets like firing from densely populated civilian areas. The only things Hamas and the Palestinian militants are accomplishing by using such tackets, and firing inferior rockets into Israel are committing suicidal genocide against their own Palestinian people, and helping Israel destroy the Palestinian people more quickly. Peace and progress never comes by way of war, bloodshed, or violence-and Hamas and Palestinian militants should know this by now. And, where is the Arabs' biggest so called allie-Russia? It seems that Russia never helps the Arabs or the Palestinians when they are being blatantly pounded by Israeli military forces. Yet, Russia is always somewhere after the Palestinians get pounded trying to sound like the big soldier on the block with a powerful stick, and pretending to be down for the Arab cause. But, hey, wait a minute-aren't the majority of the Israeli Jews from southern Russia? I wonder how stupid the Palestinians are going to continue to be, before they wake up, and realize that Russia is not their friend? And, what about the Arab nations in the middle east themselves? At this very moment, they are just standing cowardly by, and watching as Israel air bombs and kills hundreds of innocent Palestinian civilians-while a few Arab government leaders snivel before the international news medias about how the Palestinians don't have basic needs-yet, it was the Palestinians who broke the latest cease fire agreements, and preferred to try to resolve their oppression and suffering with inferior rockets that they launched into Israel. They were too foolish to even ensure that they could handle a retaliation of any magnitude from Israel, and this seems to be the case every few months or so. It's no wonder that the world is starting to completely turn a blind eye to all of this mess-like Israel said in one of their past wars with the Palestinians-"If a nation can't defend themselves against their enemies, then that nation doesn't deserve to exist." Now, if Hamas, and the Palestinian militants can launch rockets into Israel, but then can't back up their actions with military defense after Israel retaliates, then they shouldn't instigate trouble like this. And, if the Hamas government in Palestine can't defend its Palestinian people, but are just standing idlely by and watching them be massacred from afar, while their Palestinian military is also destroyed, then they should just step down from governing, and admit that Israel has the military might to take their lands, and is more capable of governing the Palestinian people than they are. It is painfully obvious from past and present conflicts that Hamas, and the Palestinian militants do not even have the military capabilities to defend their cause and lands against Israel. And, if or until they do, they will just continue to be put to deathby way of war. The world is tired, and it is not the world's responsibilty to keep helping the Arabs and the Palestinians fight their wars-especially when they start them in the first place- knowing all along that they are too weak to defend themselves against Israel's superior military power, so fall further into poverty, oppression, and dispair. If Palestine can't properly defend itself against Israel, then it shouldn't be firing rockets into Israel, because they already know what is going to eventually happen-which is retaliation and war against them. And, until Palestine creates some kind of competitive war strategy, they will continue to be forced to be at the behest of Israel, anyway.
