The Israeli assault on Gaza continues

How much more Palestinian blood would be enough to quench Netanyahu’s thirst?  No one knows the answer to this question that seems to be the only question that would produce a possible answer to when the Israeli deadly assault on Gaza will stop.

Palestinian deaths surpassed One thousand three hundred and sixty, almost one-third of them are children.  A United Nation’s spokesperson announced that this conflict is currently taking the life of one Palestinian child every hour.  The injured are more than seven thousand, most of whom are civilians.  Netanyahu continues to insist that his latest assault on the Palestinian people in Gaza has no end in sight.  The Israeli military’s excuse is Hamas and its rockets and tunnels, but the army’s target is the entire Palestinian population without exception.  To date, the state of Israel did not come close to one single Hamas leadership; none from Hamas’ first or second tier leadership.  Perhaps Israeli strategists decided to shot Palestinians at random and target homes, schools, and mosques in the hope that they might hit one – just one – of the political or military leaders of Hamas or any other resistance faction in Gaza.

The Israeli army, the fourth most powerful military in the world, terrorizes unarmed Palestinian civilians by “innovative” warning tools, including small explosive shells to be followed by massive rockets; each sufficient to level a three-story building into the ground.  It is clear that what is taking place in Gaza is not a war by any definition.  It is a one-sided assault by brutal, ruthless military machine on helpless people.

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Abu-Ali Mostafa Brigades, Fatah…etc. have proven to be incapable of providing protection for the Palestinian civilians in Gaza.  Palestinians in Gaza are trying to resist as much as they can.  Palestinian fighters are resisting the Israeli assault on their people with everything they can put their hands on.  So far, they have been able to kill a little more than fifty Israeli soldiers.  This legitimate resistance, however, has not been able to provide the protection that Palestinians need.  Arab and Muslim countries – including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, and others – are either unable or unwilling to provide protection to Palestinian civilians.  They offer little more than words of support to the Palestinian people and condemnation of Israeli atrocities; but next to nothing in terms of protection.  The rest of the world is unwilling to provide protection.  The Palestinians in Gaza are confronting a catastrophe and the entire world is watching; no one seems able or willing to stop this Israeli onslaught.  States that are willing to provide protection are incapable of providing it and states that are capable of providing protection are not willing to do so.

The one man who can stop this mayhem is Benjamin Netanyahu, but it seems that his thirst for Palestinian blood has not been quenched yet.

    Patience is a virtue; give it some time! Palestinians will not surrender unless their demands are met, and the citizens of the world and some leaders are getting fed up from what they see. The Zionist regime seems not to have any idea about the freedom fighters’ capabilities even though it is a drop in the sea compared to the US Armada being supplied to the Israeli Illegal occupying regime. The first 2 countries that need to be blamed are Egypt and Jordan. There is no doubt in my mind and in many other foreigners that Gazans are victorious in spite of the casualties of our children and civilian men and women. Trust me this is the beginning of the end of this illegal regime in the heart of the Arab dormant cowardly world. Let them open their borders and see what will happen to the occupier in no time. Viva Gaza, Viva the Palestinian freedom fighters.

    So true. Hamas, being the elected government, should have seen this genocide coming. They did not.
