This week, in a span of just a few hours, Hamas rained down 450 rockets on the people of Israel. Yet the world still does not condemn the Gaza-based terrorist organization. Writing at JNS, Israeli attorney and activist wonders what the response would be in even one rocket was to hit an American city:
What Hamas is doing is essentially committing a double war crime: It is indiscriminately firing at Israeli civilian areas while hiding behind Palestinian civilians and using the Palestinian people as human shields, with Israelis hostage to their terror.
No one should tolerate even one rocket fired at them, let alone more than 450!
Yet one of the most striking observations is the lack of outrage from the international community, which has shown barely a whimper as Israel has been bombarded with rockets.
Only two weeks ago, on Oct. 27, a gunman entered the Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha Synagogue in Pittsburgh and murdered 11 Jews, shouting “all Jews must die.”
In essence, Hamas is no different. It is a genocidal terrorist organization sworn not only to the destruction of Israel, but to the murder of all Jews.
All those who, rightfully so, condemned the Pittsburgh shooting without reservation must now also condemn Hamas...
