Hamas is threatening Israel with an “unforgettable lesson” if they push into Gaza further.
I’m curious. Shouldn’t they have taught Israel an unforgettable lesson when Israel first invaded? Or given them an “unforgettable lesson” back in 1989? Why is it now, when Israel is halfway entrenched into Gaza?
Here’s the background:
Israel has threatened to step up an offensive in the Palestinian territory, where 22 people have been killed since Thursday, in a bid to stop persistent rocket attacks and arms smuggling from Egypt.
Now, here’s Hamas:
But hitting back at statements from Israel that Gaza militants are amassing stockpiles of smuggled arms, including surface-to-air missiles, Hamas’s armed wing accused Israel of “using such allegations to justify criminal operations it seems to have decided to wage in the Gaza Strip”.
“It is our right to hold whatever weapons (we need) to defend our people since the enemy does not hesitate before using all sorts of weapons, banned by international conventions, against innocent Palestinian civilians”.
But, attacking Israel with rockets is provoking the response. Are they effectively stating, “We’ll attack you, but you attacking us is against International Law!”?
For the life of me I can’t figure out why Israel keeps invading…
