Hamas' 'human chain' is a washout

Hamas tried to put together its 'human chain' along the Gaza fence with Israel this morning, but due to rain it was a washout. Must have been the Jews' fault.
About 5,000 people, many of them schoolchildren released from school early to attend the event and university students, joined the "human chain" outside the town of Beit Hanoun, about six kilometers from the border.

The crowd hoisted banners in English and Arabic, saying "End the siege of Gaza now," and "Your siege will not break our will."
Let's go to the videotape. You'll see that - at least in this video - all the signs are in Arabic:

Now, back to the article: Organizers had hoped to form a chain running the length of the 40-kilometer Gaza Strip, but turnout was well below expectations.

After the protest ended, some 2,000 Hamas loyalists marched to a checkpoint several kilometers away from Erez Checkpoint. Hamas police, however, blocked the main road leading to Erez and called on loyalists to obey the law.

Yesterday, I asked
Can you imagine a similar scenario in Judea and Samaria where - due to the topography - the fence can never be as secure?
The video below argues that the 'Palestinians' in Judea and Samaria have something to lose, while the 'Palestinians' in Gaza do not. I don't believe that's what's preventing a similar protest in Judea and Samaria. I believe that what's preventing a similar protest is the IDF presence throughout Judea and Samaria, which would nip any such protest in the bud. It's time to put the IDF back into Gaza too. A ten-year old boy was 'moderately wounded' by shrapnel from a Kassam in Sderot today. It's time to let ten-year old boys live their lives in peace.

Here's the video comparing Gaza to Judea and Samaria.


The boy who was hit by shrapnel has now been downgraded to severely wounded. See the post above this one.

Carl - its says something about the morally bankrupt Israeli government when the best the country can do is accept "severely wounded" Jewish boys. This is the reward Jews get for living in their country? To put up with evil they shouldn't have to face in the Jewish State?

Hamas is not and will never be a threat to Israel's existence. Bur Israel's de-Judaized, incompetent and corrupt leadership is a grave danger to the nation's well-being. They're the ones who need to be washed out of power - for the sake of ten year old boys who deserve not to have their innocent childhoods destroyed by the effects of war being waged upon their homes and streets.
