Who Wants Peace?  Not Palestinians:
Mortar Attacks Shows True Goals
Nadene Goldfoot
Last week two ships loaded with missiles and other weaponry were stopped by Israel and searched. 
Today  on Shabbat the Palestinians hit Israel with at least 54 mortar shells within 15 minutes, hitting two Israelis citizens, a husband and wife with shrapnel. They also hit a house.   The mortars were just like the ones that Palestinians tried to have smuggled in.  Israelis  had to stay in their bomb shelters. for safety.  This affects a good chunk of Israel.  One has to realize that Israel is only made of 8,000 square miles and it would take 12 Israels to fit into the state of Oregon.  Israel's shape is narrow and long, and bombardment from Gaza hits the width of Southern Israel. 

This has come about after Hamas and Fatah rallied to join together again.  Obviously Hamas has no goal to make peace with Israel.  Their primary goal is to destroy Israel, instead, and this time their armed group, the Izzadin Kassam Brigade also were involved with the attack along with other smaller groups.    At this rally reporters were beaten up and detained. 
This was the worst attack from Gaza in two years.  Hamas even beat up reporters on the scene again and they took away their cameras and other equipment. 

Israel responded with tank fire and air strikes.  They aimed at militant targets.  Hamas had aimed for civilian centers and usually bombards Sderot and Ashkelon and any people in between.  For those within a few miles from the border, they get no warning siren.  There isn't time for one. 
I wonder if Hamas wasn't all charged up after the slaughter of the Rabbi's family at Itamar and are reacting to the desire of the young Gazans who want to unite with Fatah's Palestinians in Judea and Samaria.  They celebrated so much over the slaughter by passing out candies and celebrating in general that they decided to take on all of Southern Israel once again in a big barrage. 

Former President Ronald Reagan was just shown on TV talking about how after the USA is attacked we have the right to fight back in return to protect our citizens.  This is what Israel has done all along; never the aggressor out for blood but responding  after being attacked.  Ever since Israel left Gaza in the name of peace,  Israel has been under constant attack.  Yet, all the nations of the UN are voting in favor of the Palestinians having a state without coming to any peace agreement with Israel.  In voting this way they are taking away East Jerusalem, which in turn will cause the Palestinians to covet and take all of Jerusalem, and there will be no end to it.  Japan voted against Israel.  So did Brazil.  As I see all the nations turning against a people who come from the time of the creation of the 10 Commandments, from practicing justness for the past 5,000 years, who knew fairness before any other nation, I lose all respect for these nations.  They voted without lifting a finger to convince the Palestinians to make peace.  They just want to make a decision thinking that will be the end of that; even if it means the end of Israel.
