    Why are you surprised to hear this from me? I have been a strong supporter of Israel all through this forum for the past three weeks during this attack on Hamas.

    Wrong. As Hamas initiated hostilities and choose to hide amongst civilians, the blame lies squarely with Hamas.

    And fortunately, regardless of what any Arab or their sympathisers on here tell you, this is COMPLETELY consistant with UNSC resolution 1860.

    Hamas' model for success depends on high civilian casualties...up to a point.

    Again MY mistake. I don`t get on line much so I haven`t gotten to know everyone very well yet. A lot of good people in here. Not all in agreement either but otherwise very intelligent people. The stupidest among us seem to be the ,"ultra liberal ,hug your favorite hamas member', crowd. I`m openly defensive of Israel. They have been the worlds punching bag now for what, about 5 thousand years. ENOUGH. In my entire adult life(high school class of 69) the muslim world has not stopped their terrorism,and instigating wars. The muslim gets full credit for involving the entire continent of Africa in terror,rape,pillage,genocide, overthrowing governments, rapeing some more, f*** them. Thank you for getting behind a good people,a good society.

    I think it's because Hamas does not care if every innocent Palestinian civilian in Gaza is killed; every one that dies strengthens their position and makes Israel look worse in the eyes of the international community.
    Do you really think the world is blaming Hamas because Israel is killing innocent civilians? Dream on.
    Hamas is getting exactly what they want. Why should they ever agree to a ceasefire?

    Parliament, yes. However, the presidency is legitimately held by Abbas. Hamas ousted Abbas's administration by force in the summer of 2007 against rules in place in the PA.
