What we are seeing in the protests on the Gaza borders is a new phenomenon for Israel. The demonstrators don't shoot and apparently have no intention of harming Israelis. Civil protests evicted the British from India in 1948, the African National Congress overthrew the apartheid government in South Africa. From 1954 until 1968 the Civil Rights movement in the USA forced the state and federal governments to radically change the prevailing attitude towards blacks and other minorities. The Gazans have nothing to lose. All the IDF can do is to contain them.
4. So,what happened to IDF attacking Hamas resources?
IDF should take the battle to Hamas and stop being a sitting duck for Palestinian agitators. Keep Hamas and its leaders on the defensive. Let them sit in their bunkers rather than running around. These are peaceful demonstrations only for Israel's enemies.
Curious why all these morons are targeting Israel when their fellow Arabs in Egypt also have barricaded their border.
Why is it that everyone surrounding Gaza wants nothing to do with it?
Do the Arabs have bad breath? No. Do they all have dandruff? Nope. Do they all have STDs? Nada. (Well, probably...)
Could it be that both Egypt and Israel know that the residents of Gaza have become brainwashed ticking time bombs, ready to infiltrate and kill whoever they run into? Why, yes! It is!! Hundreds of Egyptian soldiers and police have died at the hands of Hamas. Hamas is simply evil by world norms.
Israel has warned that anyone approaching the border fence is facing lethal force. Israel has every right and duty to maintain the integrity of the border.
Considering how well-armed Hamas is and how many 'civilians' turn out to be Hamas soldiers, Israel has no explaining to do to anyone.
Bravo to the IDF! Keep up the excellent performance: nobody breaks through the border, nobody gets through the fence.
If Israel wanted to destroy the Gaza Strip and kill every Palestinian tomorrow it could. If the Palestinians could destroy Israel and kill every Jew tomorrow they would. Therein lies the difference. The Palestinian definition of Oppression is their inability to kill Jews and destroy Israel as they wish. Jews should not have to die just so the Palestinians can feel better about themselves.
The Palestinians apparently can't smell the coffee. The world sees these protests as part of an old strategy to keep their "manufactured victimhood" in the world press. Outside of the Israeli press it really isn't being covered. No one really cares. There are REAL refugees like the Syrians or Kurds or Yazidis. It's more than stupid, it is suicidal. They are condeming their children to the worst possible future. In any civil society, the children would be taken away from their parents because it would be considered abuse.
