Instead of using money and concrete given to Palestine to build schools and hospitals, Hamas uses that money to build tunnels to terrorize Israelis, and Hamas killed 160 Palestinian children making them build those tunnels. Where is the global outrage?

-- and is USraHell('s PTB...) killing 1,600 or 16,000 Palestinians ? for they have always been much the 'much better' killers. Or are they maybe aiming at 1,600,000 (for a start) ?

As the death toll of Operation Protective Edge rises, the deaths of children are firmly in the spotlight—and rightly so. It pains all reasonable people to hear of children dying as the consequence of war. Hamas and its supporters display gruesome pictures of dead and wounded children in order to gain sympathy for their portrait of Israel as the villain intent on killing Palestinians. In response, Israel cites the need to stop Hamas from firing thousands of rockets at its own children, who are being forced to live in bomb shelters, as well as the need to eliminate the tunnels that Hamas dug into Israel in order to carry out terror attacks against Israelis. One tunnel opening was found underneath an Israeli kindergarten.

But who built those tunnels? The answer is Hamas, of course—using some of the same children who are now trapped under fire in Gaza.

The Institute for Palestine Studies published a detailed report on Gaza’s Tunnel Phenomenon in the summer of 2012. It reported that tunnel construction in Gaza has resulted in a large number of child deaths.

“At least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials”

The author, Nicolas Pelham, explains that Hamas uses child laborers to build their terror tunnels because, “much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies”.

Human rights groups operating in Gaza raised concerns about child labor in the tunnels as far back as 2008. Hamas responded by saying it was “considering curbs.” Following Operation Cast Lead in 2009 Hamas softened its position and the Interior Ministry established the Tunnel Affairs Commission (TAC) which, “In response to public concern at a rising toll of tunnel casualties, particularly of child workers…issued guidelines intended to ensure safe working conditions.” No mention is made in the report of the conditions that would result for both Palestinian and Israeli children from building tunnels that would be used to launch terror attacks.

Nor does it seem that Hamas paid much subsequent attention to ensuring the safety of the child workers that it used to build the tunnels that would wind up endangering the lives of many in Gaza. On a tour of the tunnels in 2011, Pelham noted that, “nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels.”

Not only are Hamas misappropriating much of the humanitarian aid supplied to Gaza—800,000 tons of cement were used to construct the terror tunnels into Israel—they are also directly exploiting and endangering Gaza’s youth in their construction and operation.

This depravity towards life comes at no surprise to those who understand that Hamas loved death. They are willing to kill even the children of their own people to further their genocidal hatred of Jews!

Hamas is a terrorist organization. They exist to kill. To know where they get the inspiration to murder Jews, all one needs to do is look at the Hamas Charter, which calls for the destruction of Israel. Where is the outrage of the global media outlets and Western government leaders? Oh, that's right, they're too busy condemning Israel for protecting herself from terrorism!

I draw your attention to Article Seven of the Hamas Charter between the lines below:
The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:

"The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Islamic hatred of Jews goes back 1400 years to the beginning of Islam when Jews recognized Muhammad as a false prophet. For not wanting to follow Islam, Muhammad turned genocidal against them.

The genocidal hadith reference Hamas cites exists multiple times in the most authoritative sources of Islamic doctrine, as they note occurring in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. THIS IS THE REASON FOR THE CREATION OF HAMAS AND FOR JEW-HATRED IN THE MUSLIM WORLD! Islamic doctrine itself is responsible for genocidal hatred of Jews. The Qur'an, not being satisfied with referring to Jews as apes and pigs (e.g. Sura 5:60), makes Muslims hate Jews by calling Jews the worst enemies of Muslims (Sura 5:82). This results in paranoia in the Muslim mind, and that paranoia and hatred of Jews shows as the Muslim world blames everything on Jews, and uses the word "Jew" as a way to insult other Muslims. Muhammad's paranoid mind goes so far as to even say that Jews cause meat to spoil! Not improper storage conditions or bacteria, but Jews! Read these words of Muhammad in the most authoritative sources of Islamic doctrine:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Were it not for Bani Israel, meat would not decay; and were it not FOR EVE, no woman would ever betray her husband." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 611)

Hammam b. Munabbih said: These are some of the ahadith which Abu Huraira narrated to us from Allah's Messenger, and one of these (this one): Allah's Messenger said: Had it not been for Bani Isra'il, food would not have become stale, and meat would not have gone bad; and had it not been FOR Eve, a woman would never have acted unfaithfully toward her husband. (Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3472)


Of course, Islamic doctrine would not be satisfied without taking stabs at women, even as it takes stabs at Jews.

Those like David F. have no desire to even read the story but simply babble on about "big bad Jews." I posted this story to create awareness of what drives Hamas' hatred of Jews, and that hatred of Jews is based on Islamic doctrine going back over 1,000 years ago. I also posted it to expose the Jew-haters on care2 because they can't help but display their hatred of Jews. Let them be exposed for the care2 community to see who they are.

Arafat said, "We shall wage war from our bedrooms!"

And so the Palestinians did, having more children than they could care for, in less room than it made sense to, and an overpopulated Gaza Strip is what they got.

They voted a terrorist government in and helped them at every turn, and this is the bed they made for themselves.

talk about racist attitudes - - 'having more children than they could care for...'

no mention of the illegal Israeli occupation, and illegal settlement building, land grabs and all the usual.
Just same old lame rhetoric to try and obscure what is going on.

Pitiful. The world knows all about it, the Israel siege, and the rest of the government's dirty business.

Yes Jess, the racist attitude of Hamas and the Muslim world AGAINST Jews is intolerable!

The supremacist teachings of the Qur'an, like Sura 3:110 telling Muslims and especially Arab Muslims that they are the evolved people, creates racism against Jews. And it gets worse with the Qur'an calling Jews apes and pigs! Such racism is what you are condemning, right?

Such racism against Jews was not written a few days ago, or in 1948, rather Islamic racism against Jews goes back 1400 years to Muhammad himself. He founded racism against Jews! The jihad against Israel is just a manifestation of the racism which Muhammad started.

You see, it was because of this racism against Jews that Muslims could not tolerate Jews having their own land. Muslims could have 57 Islamic regions, but they could not stand for Jews to have even one.

The Muslim world knows that the only reason the invented people called "Palestinians" flooded the region was to exterminate Jews.

In March 1977, Zahir Muhsein, an executive member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), said in an interview to the Dutch newspaper Trouw: “The ‘Palestinian people’ does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel.”

On March 23, 2012, aired on Al-Hekma TV, Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad said:

Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We are all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri ["Egyptian"]. Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

"Palestinians" are an invented people! Their whole purpose is to drive Jews into the sea, killing them.

Even with this, Israel bent over backwards to let these "Palestinian" invaders stay in the lower portion of Israel. But that was still not enough, because the whole purpose of the creation flooding the area with Muslims was the exterminate Jews. No wonder Muslims throughout the world hold up atrocious signs like "Hitler was right" and "Let's finish what Hitler started." The hypocrisy of mainstream media is that they don't condemn this genocidal anti-Jew hatred. And many dhimmi non-Muslims join with Muslims in their genocidal rants against Jews!

This information about the real reason behind Jew-hatred is what the world needs to know all about, because right now all they know is Muslim propaganda. Pallywood is alive and well, and pious Muslims like genocidal Hamas are so bold to pass off pictures of children killed by Muslims in Syria as pictures of Muslim children killed in Hamas' jihad against Israel. Hamas is so bold to do this because the world THINKS they know all about what the jihad against Israel / Jews is all about. Facts and reality is not a concern of people like Jess B., like Hamas killing their own children to build terror tunnels instead of building schools, all the while Israel calls and flyers Palestinian areas before they attack Hamas, even going so far as to call a hospital which Hamas fired rockets from to make sure no patients were inside before Israel bombed that Hamas launching pad. Facts like that don't matter to racists like Jess B.

Stop all aid to the Palestinians until they relinquish terror. it wouldn't take too long because they don't produce anything except rockets and suicide vests.
Hamas is totally to blame for all civilian deaths in Gaza.
Thanks for posting Rahman.

dear me - if israel wanted to take over gaza - a hellhole if ever there was one (i've been there and it's been like that for decades) - they could've simply killed everyone off and moved in. that's what hamas planned to do to israel, sowing terror and despair via the terror tunnels.

hamas will always try to shift the blame onto israel for its own mistreatment of its own people. parts of the european media seem to be catching on at last. i wonder when the rest of the world will wake up? may take a while: anti-semitism is a deep-seated malignancy.

EVEN if some hate the jews ( LIKE OUR DAVID POSTING HERE) why in the world would you want to support Hamas who said OB Ladin was a HOLY WARRIOR. Why would any American support a culture in the middle east that supplies suicide bombers (even children), terrorists that take down planes, or attacked us on 911 and abuses women ?
Israel has exported more lifesaving medical technology to the far-flung corners of the earth than any nation of comparable size. It has done more to protect the environment, to promote literature, music, the arts and sciences, to spread agricultural advances and to fight terrorism within the rule of law.
Israel has created a legal system that is the envy of the world.
Now your turn David.....tell us all what Hamas or what the middle east radicals have contributed besides the things I listed above.

Sandra, try actually writing something intellectual instead of simply posting propaganda articles.

Some real articles to post in a discussion about the genocidal nature of Hamas and Jew-hating Palestinians would be how Palestinians made a mock Sbarros to mock the innocent Jews blown up who were just out eating enjoying themselves until pious Muslims chose to murder them, and how Hamas builds tunnels which lead to Jewish kindergartens.

Hamas propaganda is to portray themselves and their supporters as victims. They TELL the media to refer to ALL Palestinian deaths as "innocent civilians" so the Jew-hating world can help spread their propaganda about the "big, bad Jews." Even though the bulk of residents of "Palestine" are women and those under age 14, the bulk of "Palestinians" killed are males in the 18-28 age group, the ones which represent the majority of terrorists, and the next age group up which would represent Hamas leadership.

Israel goes so far as to flyer and call areas for residents to evacuate before bombing Hamas targets, yet Hamas tells them not to leave so that they could be killed! Israel seeks to preserve life, Hamas seeks to destroy life.

Everyone, take notice of a textbook example of the psychological issue called PROJECTION, which Jess B. demonstrated. Jess B. wrote:

"I see I have struck a nerve with the likes of pisces and qureshi .. more kvetch and hasbara.
More bigoted, double standards and hypocrisy,out in their full splendor ..
for all to see."

From the bigoted, hypocritical, double standards Jess B. has demonstrated in full splendor, Jess B. projects his / her own bigotry, racism, hypocrisy, double standards onto those like me and Pisces, etc. who are the ones speaking out against bigotry, racism, double standards and hypocrisy. It reveals that Jess B. understands that Jess B. is a racist, bigoted, double standard hypocrite, but instead of changing, Jess B. chooses to instead project those inhumane views onto others, onto the ones who are speaking out against bigotry, racism, etc.

Jess B., you're love of Jew-hating, murderous Islamic supremacism has been revealed, and you did all the work in revealing it!

What nobody sees is that Hamas and Likud are profiting both from this situation and the groups on both sides who are less hardline can only watch in horor. Rabin, Perez and Arafat proved in the past peace is possible.. Because of the results Arafat with his Fatah-party had been given by the laborparty of Perez and Rabin, Fatah was more populair then ever and nobody talked of Hamas anymore. After hardliners as Sharon and Netanyahu got in power after the murder of Rabin, the trouble started.. Netanyahu and the Hamas-official only tell us they can't talk with eachother.. Because of the ongoing war of Likud and Hamas, the less radical Israelian political parties and the palestinian Hamas are forced to become more right-winged.. Fatah lost inch by inch his strong position to Hamas after Likud deliberatly sabotaged the Oslo-Accords.. This made Hamas stronger and Fatah weaker and forced Fatah to become more rightwing.. This in turn forced other political parties in Israel more rightwing.. At the end we see that Hamas and Likud both effectively kidnap the Palestinians and their allies and the Israeli and their allies.. I think it is time the laborparty and Fatah try to talk again with eachother.. They can tell their followers what they will do if they are both chosen in the elections.. Talking with Hamas and Likud is pointless, because they don't understand the principle that you sometimes have to give something to win at the end both.. If you want to win and you need the other to win, you both have to do concessions..

I mean the Palestinian Fatah has to become more rightwing.. Not Hamas.. Because of the policies of Hamas and Likud, the more tollerant political parties on both sides had to become more intollerant to uphold their political credibility.. That means Netanyahu and Hamas used their polititics to shift the political envirement.. Both parties use the propaganda-tools to frame the whole group of people as members from the same intolerant party.. As if others would say Americans have the death-penalty, so all Americans are cruell.. Ore the Netherlands have no death-penalty, so all people of the Netherlands are soft..

The press including the western press like to portray the Jews as the aggressors while at the same time ignoring the fact that this war was the result of Hamas aggression against the Israeli civilian population .Israel has time after time held to the cease fire agreements brokered by the Egyptians and the US and on every occasion it was broken by Hamas.No country worth it's salt would stand by and see it's people and it's country come under attack from thousands of rockets without responding.What appalls me is the anti Semites which spout their vitriol on Care 2.I wonder if in private they don their Nazi uniforms and march up and down their living rooms.

This articlle bears many of the hallmarks of propaganda, but even giving it the benefit of the doubt I can't see this as being reasonable justification for Israel taking military action. Quite frankly being opposed to child labour in dangerous conditions is something most people could support, killing those child labourers in order to liberate them from that exploitation is something only a deranged person could support.

And, of course, Israel knew that these children were forced labour in the tunnels. And, of course, these tunnels were not to enable terrorists to murder Israelis especially babies and children. But according to James it is acceptable to allow that.

To me the blame lies with those that forced the children to dig the tunnels KNOWING that they could be killed for any reason. But to the deranged person, such as James, it is Israel's fault and that they must allow their own children and babies to be murdered.

@ James - " Quite frankly being opposed to child labour in dangerous conditions is something most people could support, killing those child labourers in order to liberate them from that exploitation is something only a deranged person could support."

Thank you for calling Hamas deranged! Hamas exploits innocent Palestinian children, forcing these children to dig terror tunnels, then in their genocidal hatred of Jews they have the nerve to claim they are liberating these children from exploitation when billionaire Hamas leaders are the very ones exploiting Palestinian children!

Instead of building schools and playgrounds for Palestinian children, Hamas leadership siphons off the money to their personal millionaire and billionaire bank accounts. Whatever money is left over, Hamas uses to build terror tunnels and launch rockets FROM schools and playgrounds.

Everyone needs to pay attention to Hamas' words. When they say they love death, they mean it, but not their own deaths rather the deaths of their own Palestinian people. This is why Hamas leadership gives instructions from their royal estates instead of fighting on the ground, and purposefully puts Palestinian civilians in danger by beating them if they want to leave their homes. Israel wants Palestinian civilians to stay alive, dropping flyers in their neighborhoods and making calls to them to leave before they attack a Hamas target near them, and Hamas responds by telling and forcing Palestinian civilians to stay so the Palestinian civilians, including children, can be killed to further Hamas' propaganda.

How difficult it is to see the world making their decisions based upon what they see on TV and on the comparison of casualties.

Nobody takes into consideration the psychological damage on the Israeli public especially on the children. The Israelis incorporate ways to protect their population from physical damage – psychological damage is invisible to the TV cameras so it is of no interest.
Nobody is there to record a child who hears a siren of an ambulance and thinks a rocket is being fired at him.

For what does the Hamas need rockets and terror tunnels?

If the monies received from the West would be put into civilian projects and they would stop teaching hate and worshiping death, there would be no blockade and Gaza would flourish.

The West should tell Hamas that they brought this tragedy upon themselves and that they should stop firing into Israel, and disarm. Instead they demand that Israel cease fire immediately.
The world turned upside down.

We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.” Golda Meir
