So Israel is getting stick for the natural act of wanting to defend itself and its citizens.
But the attacks they made, in which 'innocent' civilians died, including women and children, only came about following the rocket attacks from the Hamas terrorists.
Now, how dumb can Palestinans be?
First of all, they are given the Gaza strip, something that was meant as a precursor to something bigger. A stepping stone to an eventual solution? We hear talk of 'land for peace.'
But what do they do? They let the terrorists take the upper hand and use it as a launchpad to attack Israel.
Now, I don't know about you. But if Tuhoe were to use Tuhoe country as a missile base to attack Tauranga, even Helen Clark might have fired back and even sent the troops in.
Were we kiwis to launch missile attacks against the Eastern Seaboard of Australia, I am sure the Australian would invade ASAP.
Ditto if the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys attacked the Kent Coast, or vice versa.
So after a relentless firing of rockets by Hamas from the Gaza strip, in breach of a ceasefire, it's a no-brainder that the much better equipped Israelis would retaliate.
Now, the BBC noted an election was brewing in Israel, as if to say retaliation was also political.
But what better way to shore up support for a government, than to attack it militarily.
So who do the Palestinians expect to hurt from their attack?
Now, as i noted earlier. The giving of the gaza strip to the Palestinians was a form of Land for peace deal.
Thus, after what we have seen since the formation of this mini-Palestinian state, we can hardly be surprised if the israelis are even less keen on such a solution for the West Bank.
Thus, how dumb can the Palestians be?
True, they have many friends in the media and the best PR consultants. They know how to show tearful images of children to suit their ends. there have been the 'Pallywood' scandals of faked attacks.
But on matters like this latest attack, the Palestinians are truly showing their stupidity against a wise and responsible Israel.
