The Real Cause of Civilian Deaths in Gaza: What Israel Must Say

Naftali Bennett did a great job earlier this week of rejecting the preposterous suggestion by a British talking head that the residents of Gaza are being victimized by Israel.  As Bennett correctly and forcefully pointed out, Gazans are being victimized by Hamas, not Israel.
But there is another party that is also making victims of Gaza’s residents:  the reporters and government officials who in any way blame Israel for the death of people afflicted by “leaders” who put rocket launchers near houses.  Every single time that responsibility is taken off Hamas, and every single time that Israel is blamed, Hamas — rightly — takes such media attention as encouragement to continue doing exactly what it has been doing.   Because every time Israel is blamed, Hamas’s tactic works again.
The only way — the only way — that Hamas and the rest of the Muslim world will be forced to stop using these tactics is when they don’t work anymore.  And making them not work means not blaming anyone other than Hamas for the deaths of the people in the midst of whom Hamas stores and operates its weapons, and among whom it hides its “fighters.”  When the world finally stops blaming the Jews for defending themselves from people who do these obscene things, the obscene things will stop happening.
Because let’s face it:  Hamas obviously can’t defeat the IDF in the field, soldier against soldier.  Hamas can only ever hope to defeat an IDF soldier by hiding behind Gaza’s women and children, and by hoping that a chorus of world opinion will stop the Jews from defeating Hamas.  When Hamas realizes that that chorus isn’t going to sing any more, Hamas wil stop abusing its own children.
As good as Naftali Bennett’s performance was — and it was terrific — it can be better:  because every Israeli asked such “questions” by idiotic Western talking heads should turn the questions around:  it is  you, Mr. Reporter, who are causing these deaths, by encouraging Hamas to continue abusing these innocent children. When you stop doing that, the deaths of innocents will stop. And until you stop, the deaths of innocents will continue, because every time you attack Israel for defending itself, you give Hamas exactly the reward it seeks for this barbaric tactic.

  10. I believe Hamas is responsible for the civilians death because they are killing them before the IDF enters Gaza and using the dead bodies as PR for the camera’s to make it appear the IDF did it . Obama’s Terrorist Factions are gutless Cowards .

    Hamas can never defeat the IDF so they rely on the bleating of Obama and Kerry to get it a cease fire.

  15. Nope and they are not man enough to try. That is what cowards are. They use women and child. That makes them cowards and savages. They have to go. God will take the children unto him.
