This is why I support Israel......
August 4, 2014 6:52 PM
In parasha Noach, the word Hamas, in Hebrew, describes today's Hamas to a "T." It's meaning is wickedness, robbery, murder...every negative thing is wrapped up in that one word.Hamas is allied with the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS. They are perfectly described in Bereshit 16:12 "He shall be a wild ass of a man; his hand against everyone, and everyone's hadn against him; he shall dwell alongside of all his kinsmen."Even other Arab countries are telling Hamas to, in essence, "Grow up!" Qatar is in league with Iran in supporting Hamas, however, the majority of the Arab countries are telling the murderers to stop doing what they are doing.It angers me that the so-called United Nations is complaining that Israel is committing war crimes while ignoring the real crimes that Hamas is committing.

An interesting but scary video. This video must be shown to the free world so that it can understand what Israel and the free world is up against.

Stopping Muslim threats to destroy Israel
Amadinejad threatens Israel's existence repeatedly. To stop him Israel should threaten to bomb the Kabbah in Mecca with a nuclear weapon should Iran attack Israel.

Hamas must be stopped!
Israel shows so much restraint and gets nothing back but missles and suicide attacks. They have declared consistently they will only accept a destoyed Israel, yet most of the world says nothing and are waiting for Israel to make a big mistake that will get their friend to disapprove of them. At times their greatest friend does nothing while Israel is bombed and Rockets fly. The U. N. vote proves this, some friends stayed with Israel but many voted aganist the Israeli's position.......

Why should Israel even bargain with `HAMAS` which is a terrorist entity in Gaza! Israel has always bent over backwards to accomadate its Arab muslim neighbours! The answer to why the Arabs hate Israel is to be found in the Quran and their other so-called holy books, which tell them to hate Jews with a vengeance!
Nothing will ever change until they see what they believe is false!

where the one for the FATAH?
Most (sane) Americans know and agree that HAMAS is a terror group- what they do not believe is that the people of GAZA are PRO Hamas- they wish to think "the people" are "for Peace" - We also need some factual proof that FATAH & PA are PLO and have the exact same goals as the Hamas- Most Americans do think the murderer of Munich, b/c he is in a suit is "moderate" and refuse to acknowledge he also wants NO ISRAEL at all. Some Israelis need to face this hard truth as well.

Hopefully, European Union Can Pressure Them
Hamas wants the European Union to remove them from the list of terrorist organizations. The European Union refused to install Turkey as a member, until Turkey admits to the Armenian Genocide. The same pressure should be applied on Hamas. Refuse to remove them from the list, until Hamas recognizes the State of Israel. The European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize, so they should be held accountable for human rights (Armenian Genocide) and coexistence (Hamas recognizing the State of Israel). International pressure from all sources should be applied on Hamas to do so.

Hamas wins the PR Game
Unfortunately, Hamas does win the PR game. Israel should take every opportunity to win the moral high ground, but sadly misses the opportunity over and over again. Israel too candid?
