John on the Sunset Coast BS: Small hope for Israel/Palestine (2685* d) RE: BS: Small hope for Israel/Palestine 16 Jul 14


Ed T-- [-] response to your post

Since Hamas is the Gaza governing body, and (as it sets the targets) is it not reasonable to speculate it has within its power to create safe zones [Yes it Would. But they Don't], areas where they will not shoot rockets from [They don't seem to have such areas], is the onus not with Hamas (not Israel) to protect its citizens? [One would would think so, yes?]

The targets seem to be the buildings from where rockets are fired at Israel by Hamas. Is it not reasonable to speculate that it is likely that the resident of the militarized home, and even neighbours,would know this, and see the building as a potental target, espevially [sic] after a rocket is fired from the location.

I make the above suggestion based an asdumption[sic. You know what they say about assumptions.] that Hamas is not intentionally putting its citizens at risk to score political points [Evidence does not support your assumption]. It would be rare to have a governing body that would have such a lack of compassionate concerns for its innocent citizens welfare [Perhaps, but not unknown by a long shot-no pun intended], and would intentionally use them as military fodder [Just gos to show that governments are not always acting in the best/immediate interests of the governed.]
