While Mahmoud Abbas talks about Israeli provocations and his Gaza security chief refuses to disarm the terrorists, the Palestinians themselves have taken their cues and acted accordingly. This morning, Palestinians shot an anti-tank missile at a school bus full of children in a Gaza settlement:
A mortar shell also hit a Gush Katif settlement. No damage or casualties were reported in either case.
Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired four Qassam rockets at the southern Israeli town of Sderot predawn Friday. The Magen David Adom ambulance service said that several people had been treated for shock.
Soon we will hear the usual excuses from the Palestinians. The attackers were from Islamic Jihad, not Fatah or Hamas. The Israelis started it first. Blah, blah, blah. What possible provocation could result in targeting a school bus full of children? What manner of people would deliberately kill such defenseless and powerless innocents? The location of this attack makes it even more senseless as he Gaza settlements are due to be evacuated anyway.
This isn't fighting for freedom; it's hatred and terrorism. These are the people who will control the state at the political center of the Middle East. It's a sobering thought for those who want to rush headlong into granting sovereignty to the Palestinians.Sphere It View blog reactions
