Gazans cower under fire, anger at Israel mounts (They can dish it out but can't take it)
Reuters ^ | 3/1/2008 | Nidal al-Mughrabi

Posted on 03/01/2008 6:47:49 PM PST by tobyhill

GAZA, March 1 (Reuters) - Under the most intense Israeli bombardment in years, the people of Gaza took cover on Saturday, some comforting children caught in the firing line, many saying the onslaught may bolster support for Israel's Hamas enemies.

"We are living in the middle of the battle zone. We wanted to flee the house but we've been trapped since last night," 21-year-old Rami Mohammed Ali said by telephone from his home in Jabalya town as explosions and gunfire thundered outside.

"Rockets and missiles are whistling by all the time and the building has been shaken by mines the Palestinians are setting off against the Israeli soldiers who are invading," he said.

"My little nephews have been crying the whole time."

The area, in the north of the Gaza Strip, has been at the heart of ground combat between Israeli troops and Islamist militants who have continued to fire rockets from around Jabalya into Israeli towns -- the reason Israel says it is attacking.

Mohammed Ali, who lives with his brother's family and sister, said: "We've had a dilemma over which room is safer. In the end we all squeezed into the inner hallway, like sardines."

All of them stand out and celebrate every time Hamas gets a big hit then complain every time Israel strikes back.

Audacity knows no bound with these people, apparently! Israel is suppose to just shut up and take no action to try and save the lives of her people. More despicable than words can say.

***”They wanted to bring Hamas down. But by massacring people they can only strengthen Hamas because ordinary people will identify more with them as people who are fighting against the occupation.***

I guess the residents of Gaza haven’t received word yet that Israel left two years ago.

Funny how the media squawks about "escalating violence" when Israel retaliates against terror attacks from Gaza, but when Gaza launches attacks on Israel, not so much as a peep from the so-called "mainstream media."

That never had to be the way it is. You could habe stopped trying to kill Jews. They are husbands, fathers, children, mothers. You "Palistinians" teach otherwise. It is your fault.

Nidal al-Mughrabi approaches his news assignments on the Israel-Hamas conflict with a completely open mind, without any preconceived notions or prejudices.

Yup, that’s how we lost WWII, carpet bombing Dresden until there was a firestorm. Those Germans just up and identified more and more with the Nazis and then... oh yeah, never mind.

Dumb frackin muzzies and palis. They declare war on the Isreali civilians and forgot that they cannot protect their own civilians when the IDF retaliates.

If the Israelis had any balls, they'd fire up a shoulder-to-shoulder line of Cat dozers, and not hit the brakes until they plowed these Muzzie heathens into the Red Sea. Gaza and the Left Bank are nothing more than U.N. sanctioned tent cities for bloodlusting pagans.

Palestinians want war, they send rockets every day, but they want no rocket to come near to them. I say pour it on Gaza without mercy, in a manner that they will not sonn forget.

You want to blow yourself up anyway. What's wrong with a little help?

Islamist militants who have continued to fire rockets from around Jabalya into Israeli towns -- the reason Israel says it is attacking.

As if there were some other reason. If the islamofascists insist on wreaking havoc on people they should pick on the a-holes at Reuters for a change--it would even be good PR for them.

“And it took you how many YEARS to figure this out ????????”

That’s the problem. Most of the Palestinians have move elsewhere, including many to the USA. Others have move to Jordan (the original “Palestinian homeland”) and any number of other middle-eastern countries.

The folks you have left are those who are either radicals who will never leave, or those too... uh, lazy? stupid? to leave.

It's so bad he has time to make a phone call
