For the love of... Gaza
Where is the condemnation from the 'pro-Palestinian' lobby of the Hamas rockets that struck Gaza today?
I note, from the story this morning regarding the rocket attacks on the Jewish state, that those who profess to be friends of 'ordinary Palestinians' are not up in arms over the targeting of Sderot during Obama's visit.
And why should they be? What impact do Hamas's rockets have on those that regard themselves as 'pro-Palestinian'?
"As Mr. Obama began his program Thursday, Israeli police said militants in Gaza had fired two rockets at the southern town of Sderot.
One of the rockets exploded in the courtyard of a house in Sderot early in the morning, causing damage but no injuries, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. The other landed in an open field. Sirens wailed in Sderot shortly after the 7 a.m. rocket attack, forcing residents on their way to work or school to run to bomb shelters.
The Israeli military said four rockets were fired in all, but the third and fourth landed in Gaza."
Did you read that fully?
Four rockets were fired in total. The third and fourth landed in Gaza.
This becoming somewhat more problematic for Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others that operate out of Gaza.
Just last week it was revealed that one of their major propaganda points during the Operation Pillar of Defense war was shattered when the United Nations revealed that the death of a young boy, the son of a BBC employee, was caused not by an Israeli attack but rather more likely by a stray rocket from Gaza.
How many Palestinians will have to die at the hands of their own 'government' before someone on the other side says something?
So where is the outcry from 'pro-Palestinian' groups? Where is the Palestine Solidarity Campaign's press release condemning Hamas? Where is Jeremy Corbyn MP's tweet about the oppression of the Hamas occupation? Where is the letter to The Times from various B, C, D-list celebrities intermingled with professors and fellows from universities around the country?
STONE. COLD. SILENCE.
For the love of Gaza, speak up, people!!!
