More commentary on Hamas and Israel

January 6, 2009

Fellow political and football blogger Eric at Tygrrrr Express (link in sidebar) has collected a batch of links that are interesting. Please check his site out for excellent commentary. What follows is from an email that he sent to me. Edited so as not to compromise his information, content unchanged.

Allowing Israel to finish what it failed to do in 2006 will allow 2009 to bring us one step closer to peace.

As always, if you have anything to promote, especially if it deals with this topic, please let me know. I received some spectacular hate mail this week, and look forward to entertaining the many with the intellectual deficiencies of the few.

Happy 2009!

Happy New Year!

Israels new year’s gift to the world was the killing of a Hamas terrorist leader.

Israel? GET SOME!

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Israel dropped a one-ton bomb on the home of a Hamas strongman Thursday, killing him along with two wives and four children in the first attack on the top leadership of Gaza’s rulers. As the aerial bombardment escalated, the army said it also was poised to launch a ground invasion.

But Israel also appeared to be sounding out a possible diplomatic exit from the 6-day-old military offensive against Hamas by demanding international monitors as a key term of any future truce.

There are people that are just plain stupid, and there are those that are ignorant. Sailing a pleasure craft into any area where there is ongoing belligerence, much less full blown war has to fall into one of those two categories. Doing so with the express intent to aid either side turns you into a legitimate target. If they were truly on a purely humanitarian mission why were they not under the colors of, the International Red Cross, for example?

Now, could this have been taken care of in a better way? In my opinion it most certainly could have. Since the craft refused to acknowledge the radio warnings, a shot across the bow. Followed by compliance, or being blown to Allah.

Does that sound cruel? Too bad, it is a war zone. Obey the rules, or pay the price.

(CNN) — An Israeli patrol boat struck a boat carrying medical volunteers and supplies to Gaza early Tuesday as it attempted to intercept the vessel in the Mediterranean Sea, witnesses and Israeli officials said.

The Dignity arrives in Tyre, Lebanon, after it was reportedly rammed by an Israeli military vessel Tuesday.

CNN correspondent Karl Penhaul was aboard the 60-foot pleasure boat Dignity when the contact occurred. When the boat later docked in the Lebanese port city of Tyre, severe damage was visible to the forward port side of the boat, and the front left window and part of the roof had collapsed. It was flying the flag of Gibraltar.

The Dignity was carrying crew and 16 passengers — physicians from Britain, Germany and Cyprus and human rights activists from the Free Gaza Solidarity Movement — who were trying to reach Gaza through an Israeli blockade of the territory.

Also on board was former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney.
