First official response to explosion at UN school

This is the first official IDF response to the explosion at the UN school (Hat Tip: Israeli Girl).

Please vote for Israel Matzav as Best Midsize blog in the 2008 Weblog Awards by going here. And then let's go to the videotape.

I'm sure you're all just shocked.

If this is correct, Israel should beat the drums loudly at the UN and foreign capitals to make sure they understand the danger that Hamas represents to their own people, and get support to completely eradicate Hamas, as well as (at least temporarily) relocate all non-combatant gazastanis out of the area, say to the northern sinai, until Israel can clean up the filth that is Hamas.

After this, immediately defund the UNRWA whom are obviously complicit with Hamas, and get serious about resettling the 'palis' withj their bretheren.

How much longer do the arabs want to prolong their people suffering as a result of their own actions? This is absurd, and Israel should make sure the world knows whom is responsible for their pain, and not accept responsibility for terrorists deeds against their own people.

I wish I were surprised. Don't we remember MANY times that the UN forces cooperated with the arabs against Israel?

I have been closely monitoring this event. At first several hours passed while every anti-israel blog on the net made made the expected comments about the ruthless bloodthirsty Jews.

Then the IDF responded saying that they were fired upon by a mortar crew from the school grounds. That the return IDF mortar fire set off explosives that had been set inside the school by the terrorists. That’s what killed the civilians. With further updates the IDF said they had recovered the bodies of the terrorists (even named 2 of them) and said they recovered their mortar and other weapons.

OK, that was a fairly reasonable response. Slow, but welcome.

Just now, listening to NPR I hear a report on this that says that the IDF “claim” that is how it happened but that the UN made a statement that the school was very well marked as a safe zone for civilians and that the coordinates were given to the ID. Finally, that there were “absolutely no militants firing from the school”.

I don’t trust a thing the UN says - but many others out there in the US have no idea how anti-israel the UN is. They’re way too busy watching American “Idle”.

So, I must ask. Where are the IDF still and video photos of the Hamas mortar and dead militants in the school grounds? The IDF spokesman website and YouTube site has no response to this latest charge at all and hasn’t been updated for 4 hours now.

You IDF folks have to do much better than this.

Agreed. Anti-Israel canards, like the fake Mohammed Dura story have a way of living on. And the world is inclined to believe the worst of Israel. Life has never been fair to the Jewish people.
