Hamas shows its concern for civilians

JPost reports that Hamas has found a new way to show its concerns for 'Palestinian' civilians who have been wounded in the current fighting. It has set up separate hospitals for the terrorists and it is pilfering most of the medical supplies that are being allowed into the Gaza Strip for those hospitals.
Hamas has set up an independent hospital in the Gaza Strip to treat its operatives wounded in fighting with the IDF - and, according to Israeli estimates, it is pilfering a significant portion of the medicine allowed into the strip, senior defense officials told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.
The IDF continues to let supplies in anyway.
On Monday, the Defense Ministry facilitated the transfer of 49 trucks carrying basic foods into the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing. Since the beginning of Operation Cast Lead, the IDF has allowed some 450 trucks into the Gaza Strip [Pictures here. CiJ].

Monday's operation was unique since it was the first time that supplies were allowed in since the IDF began its ground offensive inside Gaza and split the strip in half, cutting off the north from the south.

Bezalel Treiber, head of the Defense Ministry's Crossings Directorate, came to Kerem Shalom on Monday to oversee the operations, which included the opening of a humanitarian corridor from Gaza City to Kerem Shalom - located near the Egyptian border - to enable the trucks to travel from southern Gaza to the north.

"We are coordinating with the IDF and were able to open a road to allow the Palestinian workers at the crossing to get there and then travel with the supplies back to Gaza City," Treiber said.

A bus, he said, picked up some 20 Palestinian workers from Gaza City and transported them to Kerem Shalom, where they operated the forklifts and unloaded the supplies transferred into Gaza. Fifty trucks were then allowed into the crossing and a humanitarian corridor was opened in coordination with commanders inside Gaza to enable the supplies to reach Gaza City, where it is to be distributed to different areas in the Strip.

In addition to the supplies, the Defense Ministry also began laying a pipeline from Kerem Shalom on Monday in order to deliver fuel into the Gaza Strip. Fuel is usually transferred via the Nahal Oz fuel depot, which could not be operated on Monday due to terrorism threats.
This would go a long way in explaining an al-Beeb report that I saw but didn't post in which a foreign doctor at Gaza City's Shifa Hospital claimed that a majority of the casualties he is seeing are civilians and that he is short on supplies. Well, yes, if Hamas has opened its own hospital for the terrorists and is diverting all the supplies there, the doctor's complaint makes sense, doesn't it?

One of the things I emphasized in my interview with John DeVore a few hours ago is that the IDF is continuing to allow supplies into the Gaza Strip. You have the statistics in this post. And don't think the IDF soldiers aren't risking their lives to transport those 'Palestinians' to run the Kerem Shalom crossing point. You bet that's a risky transport. Especially because Hamas likely considers those 'Palestinians' 'collaborators,' and we all know what happens to 'collaborators' in Hamastan.

Finally, that special hospital for terrorists sure sounds like a target-rich environment, doesn't it? Hmmm.

I'm not surprised they have as little concern for the lives of their own people as they display towards Jews. So why does the world want to spare such barbarians? I don't understand the logic behind a ceasefire with Hamas!

In the words of Golda Meir zt"l, “We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us”

Seeing how easily they teach their kids the short-lived career of 'suicide' bombing, etc., nothing they do surprises me, and sadly, I do not expect them to change any time soon.

Nearly all of them are born hating us.It seems to be in their genes.
