Since Israel pulled out of Gaza, Hamas has relentlessly launched rockets at Israeli civilian targets. No nation would tolerate this overt act of war without using its full might to stop it. Israel has tolerated it far too long, largely because of pressure from world media and government sources.

Today Israel attacked the war mongering Hamas in Gaza, killing 18; some of them civilians. The blood of every civilian in Gaza killed in this attack and in every subsequent operation is fully on the hands of Hamas and the other Palestinians who have a far greater desire to destroy the only Jewish state than to build any semblence of a modern civil society for their own people.
