    At least Netanyahu can be held accountable by Israeli voters. Who holds Hamas accountable?

    BTW, every rocket Hamas fires is a war crime....and they've fired over 2800 of them. This is now a war of attrition; when Israel runs out of Iron Dome anti-missiles, Hamas rockets will start indiscriminately killing people in Jerusalem and other cities....if they don't run out of rockets first.

    Who is going to hold Hamas for all of these war crimes? There's lots of people demanding Israel be held accountable, and I agree they should**, but who thinks Hamas should be held accountable?

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/as-hama...es-11621180126
    As he spoke, the Iron Dome’s air-defense interceptor missiles streaked into the intense blue sky, making six rockets fired at Ashkelon by the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas explode into faraway white puffs. As in the majority of cases since Hamas started raining rockets on Israel on Monday—a total of 2,800 by now—there were no casualties or major damage.

    Too bad the terrorists never wanted to do it for themselves. Now they have to pay for it.

    The winds are changing. The Izraeli fascists have overplayed their hand. The sympathy for them has gone. Now it's the Palestinians who have the sympathy of a world sick of fascist Jews and their gutless American and British support.
    It has been coming for some time.
    The violence is spiking to new levels at a time when the U.S. is conducting an arms sale to Israel worth some $735 million — news first reported Monday by The Washington Post.

    The deal centers on Joint Direct Attack Munition kits, which according to the U.S. Navy, add GPS guidance and other features to standard bombs to convert them into "precision-guided 'smart' munitions."

    Details about the sale were confirmed to NPR by the office of Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

    "This was informally cleared in April and we received formal notice on May 5," said Leslie Shedd, spokesperson for Republicans on the House committee. "There is a 15-day review process — which ends on the 20th. The ranking member supports this sale."

    "We'll do whatever it takes to restore order and quiet and the security of our people and deterrence," Netanyahu said Sunday on CBS. "We're trying to degrade Hamas' terrorist abilities and to degrade their will to do this again. So it'll take some time. I hope it won't take long, but it's not immediate."

    Do you seriously believe that? Hamas are accountable to no one and are totally cruel and heartless Islamic fundamentalists. How many Hamas members have become millionaires by building tunnels to Egypt, must be at least thousands by now. How many children have died digging those tunnels? I hope Israel manages to wipe out both Islamic Jihad and Hamas, they must be eliminated. Do you think Fatah would cry any tears over them?

    And, if the US doesn't sell them to Israel, the Israelis will just make the kits themselves...

    Without a shadow of a doubt, do you think the old head of Hamas Khaled Mashal wasn't corrupt? He had amassed a fortune running into several billions and lives in five star luxury in Qatar!!

    The US is on the wrong side of history. America was dragged, kicking and screaming, to fight Hitler and his fascists. It's relish for fascist occupiers hasn't changed.

    Prosemitic hogwash from a scurrilous Brit- a representative of the ' empire ' that defiled Palestine in the first place. You don't have a voice on the issue, maggot. You're a culprit.

    I ran across this and thought that before starting a separate thread with it, that I would first submit it to this fine discussion.
