Israeli forces killed 15 Palestinians including a child we did not hear any condemnation from the so-called world community. Now, three Israelis have been killed, three Israeli soldiers hurt and two rockets have hit near Tel Aviv, we hear lot of noises from the West. British Foreign Secretary William Hague has already blamed Hamas for escalating tension.
We will be hearing a very severe condemnation from Israel’s benefactor soon or by now it is already done. We don’t approve civilian deaths from any side but Nethanyahu must be thinking that an operation to kill as much Palestinians as possible would enhance his chances in the Israeli election for the Knesset.
He is also encouraged by the belief that Obama’s re-election was made almost a ‘cake walk’ for him by his part in the assassination of Osama Bin Laden and Netanyahu killed one of Hamas leaders, Ahmed Al-Jabari, few days ago. His government has also made a bold statement threatening to eliminate Mahmoud Abbas from the political scene but analysts have translated it as an indirect warning of the fate like what Al-Jabari met.
Has anyone from the West condemned this? No! They know when to talk and when to keep mum. — S.H. Moulana, Riyadh
