Worldwide leaders condemn rocket fire

International condemnation issued against ‘deliberate targeting of civilians’, while EU, UN urge restraint on both sides.


As the first day of Operation Protective Edge drew to a close, with more than 117 rockets hitting across Israel, international leaders have issued condemnations of the attacks against Israel and expressed support for Israel’s right to defend itself, but also urged restraints.

“We strongly condemn the continuing rocket fire inside of Israel and the deliberate targeting of civilians by terrorist organizations in Gaza,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a news briefing.  

“No country can accept rocket fire aimed at civilians and we support Israel’s right to defend itself against these vicious attacks,” he added.

    Netanyahu has stated that the deaths of innocent people in Gaza is the responsibility of Hamas. I myself cannot help feeling that Hamas in Gaza have played into Netanyahu’s hands by firing off rockets which are largely ineffective, puny and counter-productive. They provide Netanyahu with an excuse to attack Gaza, which afflicts the ordinary people of Gaza while the Hamas leadership are safely bunkered down.
    The ridiculous practice of rocket firing also makes it impossible for Abbas and the Fatah leadership to take the side of the people of Gaza as they are then accused of siding with terrorists, which suits Netanyahu just fine. The truth is that the Palestinians are just not capable of challenging the military might of Israel so they need to work with people likie ourselves outside Gaza and the West Bank who are supportive and who are working hard on a global BDS strategy to defeat Israel economically and diplomatically. The world – rightly – showed utter revulsion towards Israel over the appalling murder by fire of a young Palestinian and the vicious beating of his 15 year old American-Palestinian cousin. That moral revulsion has now been overlaid by Netanyahu being able to claim that Hamas in Gaza are the true culprits and obstacle to peace. Yet again, outfits like Hamas have let Netanyahu & Co. off the hook. Truly stupid behaviour. Why can’t they think – for once – instead of automatically reacting to events?

    when people are shooting rockets at you and the world completely ignores your people being blasted, you might do somthing so stupid as FIGHT BACK too. this is bs, plus i read a report that said hamas is already dead. this is hate crimes on a genocidal scale. UN invasion of Israel needs to have started last week. we have to stop them.

    Stupid behavior . . . or complicit? We always hear about the rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, but we never hear about the extra-judicial executions, kidnappings and torture that Israel routinely carries out against innocent defenseless civilians. How many times will people get abused and repressed and murdered and violated before they stand up and say “No more!”?

    Why is there never any more information on just who is firing those rockets into Israel. Just like the media silence on the death of the three Israeli teens(when Israel knew they were already dead), there is never any investigative clout put into just who is firing these cheap rockets, and it only leads one to believe that they are purposely being launched to provide moral cover(“justification”) for Israeli massacres in Gaza. While world leaders condemn these ineffective rockets “attacks” from Gaza, these same world “leaders” are silent in the face of gross brutality, DAILY, against the civilians of Gaza! You can’t treat people like crap or animals and not expect some blow back. Israel and the USA can EASILY solve this crisis by just treating Gazans like humans with all attendant rights, but Israel. protected by the USA regardless of what heinous crime it commits, does NOT want peace, only other people’s land!

    “If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti – Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?”

    -David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister)

    “The Palestinians” would be crushed like grasshoppers … heads smashed against the boulders and walls.”

    -Yitzhak Shamir in 1988

    -Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983
