Hamas is the outcome of 60 years of occupation
Many bloggers have defended the Israeli governments decision to put an end to the rockets being fired by Hamas into Israel.
“If someone fired Qassam rockets at your home what would you do?” one person asked me.
“I would ask why are they firing rockets, what is the reason behind their actions, since we are the target of their aggression can we have done something to provoke this reaction. I would not resort by destroying their family members, neighbors and bombing their homes” I replied.
Since I know the history of the Palestinian people and followed their plight I understand why they choose Hamas. It was not extremism or Islamism they voted for. They voted for the the people who they perceived would take care of their needs. They could no longer trust the corrupt Palestinian Authorities which sold itself cheap to Israel and the USA.
Hamas has been branded as a terrorist organisation because of the suicide attacks in Israel. The suicide attacks have been horrific and there has been a terrible loss of Israeli life. Then again we have to ask ourselves why why why. It is not because they hate the Jews. Its not about religion. Its about a people being occupied for 60 years. Hamas is the outcome of occupation and the failure of the international community to boycott Israel and condem its state sponsored terrorism of the Palestinian people for over 60 years.
