It is an interesting scenerio to see unfold as the crisis in Lebanon continues to move slowly towards possible settlement. Though I maintain that as long as nations like Iran continue to try and assert their own agenda along with the United States, peace will continue to be elusive in the region. However it is interesting to note that hardly any mention is given to the ongoing crisis in Palestine or Gaza.
Seems to me that simply because huge scale shelling and air attacks aren’t happening doesn’t lessen the war on Terror that is happening in Palestine or Gaza. Rockets, though considerably less than Hezbollah’s attacks, still fly towards civilian centres from Hamas Terrorists. Gaza is locked down and yet the major EU donors of aid to Lebanon are complaining that not enough AID is reaching Palestine or Gaza.
He said: “One point four million people feel as if they are living in a cage. The border crossings are really closed. They cannot get anything out, this is crippling their economy. ( full story )
I suppose I should have sympathy, but frankly I don’t. I mean they did knowingly elect a TERROR GROUP to be their government, not that Fatah wasn’t one as well. However Fatah was sort of sanitized by the Americans and they at least did acknowledge that Israel had a right to exist. Something HAMAS has not done, despite the isolation of their nation. However, the point is this, if the people are in need of AID, perhaps HAMAS as the Government should stop spending its money on Rockets and Bombs?
Just an idea, but I know that if I was starving and my Government was getting fresh new rockets from Iran and Syria instead of needed food and medicine, I’d be in the streets alright, but not to show my support but instead to show my OUTRAGE at those in charge.
Strange too is that frankly, AID to Palestine’s Terrorist Government does not mean that those funds will necessarily be used for Food or Medicine either. I mean given the sentiments of Hamas, it is more likely that any financial aid given to them will be squandered for more Rockets, more Bombs. Somehow, it just seems to be stupid to provide even one dime of aid to them with that knowledge. So how come the EU members are willing to do so? Hell, wonder why even the USA is still sending some AID despite their earlier cutting off of aid?
Call me stupid, but the easiest way to get a Regime Change would be to deny any aid to this Government of Terrorists and then let the people make up their own minds. If they contiue to support Hamas, well so be it, but if not, then perhaps we can get a legitimate government installed that will work towards Peace nstead of more bloodshed and war? And at their choosing, not by force either.
By the way, I’d also suggest that any government that sanctions kidnapping as being an acceptable form, should be not only isolated, but condemned and left to rot before I’d give them a nickle.
