After Months Of Firing Rockets At Civilians, Hamas Terrorists Whine When Israel Defends Itself

Our good friends in Hamas take a break from firing rockets at Israeli schoolkids to show their feelings for the United States

Oh, the poor dears:

Hamas military chief killed in Gaza air strike

Hamas has said that Israeli air strike in Gaza which killed Ahmed Jabari, the head of its military wing, "has opened the gates of hell".

Israeli officials had said in recent days that they were considering assassinating top Hamas officials following a wave of heavy rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

Israel’s Shin Bet domestic intelligence service confirmed it had carried out the attack, saying it had killed Jabari because of his "decade-long terrorist activity".

For months, Hamas has been firing rockets at Israeli civilians—bus stops, schools, homes, etc. And for months, Israel has put up with attacks on its soil that no other nation would bear (can you imagine the US doing nothing while Canada fired rockets at Detroit? Uh—OK, maybe Detroit’s not a great example, but you get my point)

Those rocket attacks got virtually no media coverage in the US or Europe. But as soon as Israel fights back, with a targeted attack on one of a specific terrorist, it’s big news.

Hamas is a terrorist organization. Palestinian terrorists have literally blown up pizza parlors and wedding receptions, just for the opportunity to kill Jews. Rockets, mortars, and human killers, all sent in to Israel to kill the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors…and western liberals side with THEM?

Is it anti-semitism, or just plain stupidity? Hard to tell. Either way, denouncing Israel for defending itself is the same as calling for Israel to destroy itself. And that’s really the outcome western liberals want.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
