    That wasn`t hate paint,it was what kind of stupid are you ? No matter who fired the rocket,the powers that be get the blaim and Gaza gets the counter attack. Counter, Counter, Counter...Boom,...Boom,...Boom. If the terrorists are upset about Israels counter attacks, they should think twice about breaking cease fire agreements. Stop being a whiney little appologist for Hammas, you look stupid.

    Yes, we all know about the cease fires. Israel goes in and blasts things, then says cease fire. Hamas does the same thing, then declares a cease fire.

    Sorry but you don't "one-up" your opponent and then cry cease fire.

    That would be like me coming up uto you hitting you with a bat, then saying "cease-fire" and then blaming you for retaliating.

    Al'Jazeera reports (FWIW) that Hamas did not agree to this ceasefire:
    Despite Israel's self-declared ceasefire, Hamas officials said they would not stop fighting until Israeli troops withdrew. "If the Israeli military continues its existence in the Gaza Strip, that is a wide door for the resistance against the occupation forces," Osama Hamdan, a Hamas official in Lebanon told Al Jazeera. Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman in the Gaza Strip, said: "The Zionist enemy must stop all its aggression, completely withdraw from the Gaza Strip, lift the blockade, and open the crossings. We will not accept the presence of a single soldier in Gaza."

    It would be hard to declare a cease fire with troops still on your soil. What if a small faction of incursion forces wanted to start firing a stockpile they found just to keep the bombing going?

    If I was a leader in some same predicament I would not want any confusion. If a rocket went off towards Israel then I would want to know if it came from men under my control, men not under my control, or maybe possibly even the "enemy" seeing as they are actually their.

    And just to crush this now. No I don't personally believe that Israel has been firing the rockets at themselves also. And it is a situation that you would never want to happen.

    An equal scenario would be if the U.S. Republicans started firing rockets into China and the Democratics couldn't do anything about it and the Government wont. What do you thinks going to happen?

    You know very well that the structure of the Palestinian resistance is fragmented into various groups, where Hamas is one that is a bit more powerfull. Hamas is just one of those groups, and just because Hamas "won" over Fatha in Gaza does not mean that they control the area 100%... especially with their infrastructure destroyed by the IDF over the last many months.

    Lets change the names and put IDF instead of Hamas. If we are suppose to use your definition, then every settler attack against any Palestinian is sanctioned and known beforehand by the IDF and the political bosses in Tel Aviv and hence the responsibility of the Israeli government..any and all attack by any crazy settler... are you willing to accept that?

    Not even the IDF and the civilian Israeli government has that much control over its own people and Israel has a well defined political, social, legal and military structure, and you expect the Palestinians to be better than Israel and not only control everything, but have full knowledge of everything happening in their territory, and yet have no well defined political, social, legal or military structure...............

    Unless Hamas admits it was them, or the IDF can prove that it was Hamas, then I am sorry, but the closest you can claim is that rockets were shot from the Palestinian area by persons unknown... Should Hamas attempt to prevent the firing of rockets? You bet, but a bit hard when your political and military infrastructure is no better than an early 20th century banana republic.

    So yes the rockets must stop, but blaming Hamas for everything that is happening is just wrong and counter-productive. What is next, blaming them for the blocked sewer in a Northern Israeli town, or that your cats peed all over the place?
    There is one problem with your entire argument. In no way does Hamas attempt to stop or dissuade the firings of rockets. Did they issue a statement condemning the act? No. From there, your entire argument falls to nothing. It is irrelevant as to whether Hamas fired those rockets. They did nothing to dissuade them.

    When Israeli settlers enact violence on Palestinians, without cause, Israel does not just ignore things, as Hamas does.
