This Was No Accident…

Hamas targeted the Erez Crossing when it knew that Gazans and Israeli Arabs would be there, out in the open...

The photo above is of one of the three Israeli-Arab men who were transported to Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon on Sunday.

The Israeli-Arab men were at the Erez Crossing along the Gaza border when they came under a Hamas mortar barrage.

It’s not incidental that I point out that the three men who were injured are Israeli Arabs, and members of the same family too.

Because it’s not coincidental that they were all at the Erez Crossing when it came under fire.

The men were there to pick up and transfer their injured relatives from Gaza, and bring them into Israel for medical treatment.

Hamas knows what goes in and out at Erez, and Hamas knew these Gazans would be crossing at that time at the Erez junction, and Hamas knew they were going to be picked up by their relatives.

So when Hamas opened fire at the Erez crossing, Hamas was purposely targeting their own citizens they knew would be there, and openly vulnerable to the attack.

The Israeli-Arabs who were injured today, were injured by Hamas who had purposely targeted them, just as Hamas had previously turned their Gazan relatives into human sandbags, to be injured or killed in the battle with Israel.

I don’t know how to state it more clearly, that an enemy like Hamas can not be negotiated with. It can only, and should only, be eradicated.

  3. Isaiah 62:1 WEB “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness shines out like the dawn, and her salvation like a burning lamp.”

  4. Why dowe expect them to consider their people? They have shown that people do not matter.
