A note from a Palestinian in Gaza

Aussie Dave at IsraellyCool posts up a notice from a thinking Palestinian in Gaza:

So another war has started, don’t care who is to blame or who started it. What I do know that having rockets thrown at you is scary as hell. I’m liking the direction this war/conflict is taking. There hasn’t been many Palestinian causalities so far, and I’m loving the Iron dome (hopefully you will one day develop the technology that can stop every rocket). Hopefully it stays this way and doesn’t get any bloodier. Also, I hope the IDF won’t do half a job and perhaps take over Gaza again, I think Israel did a mistake giving it back…

Anyways, why do I as a Palestinian share this opinion? Well, I’m sick of all this. I truly am. Sure Palestinians voted for Hamas, but had they known the suffering Gazans had to endure, they probably wouldn’t have voted for hamas. Besides, it’s not like Hamas benefited Palestinians in any way in the past years. Israel initiated the blockade on Gaza, Hamas made tunnels that’s now controlled by them (like a mafia). See what I hate about this situation is the status quo, if Israel leaves Hamas alone, Gaza would remain under blockade for many years to come, and Hamas would still control tunnels using taxes earned to get rich or send of a couple of rockets every month to Israel as a sign of ‘resistance’. Perhaps getting rid of Hamas and taking control of Gaza might get us closer to peace.

Stay safe, friend. We need you and others like you to build a future that can be peaceful and prosperous and beautiful for all of us here in this war and faction torn region.

    A heartbreaking note, to know such a good person is in danger, trapped in Gaza with Hamas in total charge. If the world really cared about the Palestinians and Israelis, the leaders would help resolve this conflict in a way that benefited everyone. The problems is most of the world leaders are enabling Hamas and other terrorist groups.

    How many people believe this way in Gaza? 0.01% is probably the right number!
    If it is not even a propaganda posting to kind of show that Gaza inhabitants would want peace!

    In fact, 99% of the Gaza inhabitants support 100% the terrorist actions of Hamas and company. Women in Gaza distribute sweets in the street when Israelis are killed or maimed for life following the deluge of rockets. That is the true reality in Gaza.
    That there are an extremely few numbers of Gaza inhabitants that do not support Hamas’s terrorist actions, it is plausible but again they are so few as to be considered as completely negligible.

    Same for the number of Muslims who do not hate the State of Israel, Israelis and Jews, there are a few but, in general, they are again extremely few as to be considered as completely negligible.

    Once again Wipe out hamas has it correct.the reasons for the suffering and the blockade can be laid squarely @ the feet of the fakestinians.every time Yisrael tries to appease the 7th century savages they become more audacious.they see any kindness on Yisraels part as a weakness to be exploited.as long as the muslims are treated like civilized modern thinking honorable human beings it will be to the detriment of Yisrael.islam is no more than a criminal enterprise masquerading as a religion.

    Wipe Out and 300 Years in America: I understand your frustration, and you are right that there are many, many people in Gaza who hate Israelis and would kill them all if they could. These people have been indoctrinated completely, as you probably know, there are these vile children’s shows that teach hatred and the textbooks… so there is little opportunity for them to think differently. But, there are good people in Gaza, and yes, they are the minority, and they are pretty much silent —and they should be quiet about their beliefs if they value their lives.My heart goes out to them; they are trapped in a terrible situation through no fault of their own.
    It is a terrible situation because Hamas, a terrorist group with a hate-filled agenda, is in control. There are fanatics even worse than Hamas from some accounts that I read. These people have adopted a philosophy that does make them evil, just as the Nazis were evil. But we cannot forget that there are these good people, too. Remarkable people when you think of what they are facing.
    What I cannot understand is how the educated reporters in the mainstream US media (not to even mention those in Europe) harbor such twisted, sick hatred for Israel. They can research the history and they know the situation. I guess it is a case of blind, sick hatred.

    Here even the Arab MKs in Israel, people who not only are Israeli citizens but who are also Members of the Knesset (the Israeli Parliament), these Arab MKs have for only concerns the Gaza terrorists who send rockets into Israel!!
