The real Gaza atrocity

Funny how nobody in the media mentions this:

in 2005, Israel, sick and tired of being painted as the villain for having the audacity to defend its people, initiated a bold move of unilateral disengagement: the Israeli troops completely withdrew from Gaza, the Israeli settlements were dismantled and Gaza was left alone.
Even more to it- the Israelis left behind a significant amount of technology- hydroponic farms, etc that could have been used to improve the lives of the people of Gaza.

Have a wild guess at what the people of Gaza, ruled by the terrorist organization Hamas, did about it.
As soon as the IDF jeeps left, they started to… bomb Israel. They destroyed the technology left behind because it was “Jewish technology”, and for 5 years continued to bomb the hell out of Israel’s southern cities.

Weapons- just weapons, no food, no medical supplies- were smuggled into Gaza through tunnels and used for bombing Israeli civilians and cities. So Israel, in what is legally a self defense move, decided to block the traffic of weapons into Gaza.

Apparently trying to curb Hamas’ access to weapons is an “atrocity” but nobody cares about the thousands of Israeli civilians killed by Hamas’ bombs, by their constant living in fear and terror.

Everybody is screaming about the poor people of Gaza living badly in poverty and nobody seems to wonder- “if they’re so poor, where do they have money for rockets and explosives from?”. Maybe the trees in Gaza are growing Quassam rockets?

Between 1947-1967, all of the Jews in the Arabic Peninsula were expelled from their homes, sometimes only getting away with the clothes on their backs. Israel took them in, resettled them and made sure they were able to have new lives.
Israel is a small country without oil, a sliver of desert where even weeds have to be planted and irigated to grow.

In the mean time, the Arabic countries surrounding Israel, swimming in oil money, could not care less about their Palestinian brothers. Oh, they will complain about the poor Palestinians being exploited by the horrible Jews who have the audacity to defend themselves from suicide bombers, but these countries, very willing to go to war on behalf of said Palestinains, seem incapable of taking that willingness farther to things like, I don’t know, helping their brothers improve their lives.

They send weapons and propaganda in Gaza, but no food, no medical supplies and no actual help. Why? Because thwey WANT their “brothers” to live badly, so they can point an accusing finger at Israel.
Israel who, incidentally, is still the largest aid provider to Palestine. Go figure.

Not only that, but the Palestinians who maybe got tired of being pawns in this power game face tremendous pressure and obstacles if they try to move and settle in one of the countries of their loving Arab brethren. Immigrants from Palestine, even at third generation, are denied citizenship in these countries. So much for brotherhood.
Why? Because having a mass of poor , ignorant, angry people willing to strap explosives on themselves in order to kill Jews is what these so loving Arab countries care for. That’s the real atrocity.

    Palestinians aren’t welcome in neighboring states purely because they are, as stated, a vastly undereducated, impoverished mass who have been lead to believe that their prison has been constructed by the Israeli government, with the ultimate personification of that prison being the defensive wall erected around Israel’s border.

    The irony here is that despite endless international condemnation of the wall, it has more or less successfully stopped Palestinian citizens from detonating themselves on crowded Israeli school busses or in public places in Israeli towns/cities. Yet somehow the continued frowny-faces from the world continue to fall on Israel for a move to defend their sovereignty.

    Regardless of your viewpoints on Israels existence in general, what you cannot refute is that it exists, and as a sovereign nation is holds the right to defend itself. Palestinian militants are also more than well aware of the media attention they garner from around the globe, they’re well aware that a single mortar strike will be countered with artillery fire, thusly they launch mortar strikes from public locations such as schools, mosques, etc. The result of these actions is that Israel in turn lays artillery fire on a public place, potentially injuring civilians and then being globally condemned for attempting to shell children, when Palestinian militants are the ones who make the conscious decision to launch from that location.

    The Palestinian people are far too brainwashed and delusional from hunger and sickness to grasp who is their enemy, so they’re told who their enemy is for them. They’re told that their sadness and suffering is caused by the state of Israel, and yet money that could be used to ease their suffering is spent to wage a fruitless and unsuccessful ‘war’ against a state that vastly outpowers them.
