This is what happens to Palestinians who resist Hamas. 

Hamas does not care about the Palestinian people. They care about there goal of destroying Israel and that's it.
 
Hamas has executed 18 Palestinians suspected of collaborating with Israel after three of its own military commanders were killed Thursday in an Israeli airstrike that may have been conducted on the basis of intelligence given by informants.

Why does the UN allow rockets to be launched right beside their facilities?
 
Video: France24 on Hamas Rocket Launch Pad Revealed Near Gaza Homes -- and UN Facility

From: "Hamas rocket launch pad revealed near Gaza homes"
+FRANCE 24 (http://f24.my/1o9JFam)

FRANCE 24 has exclusive footage of a Hamas rocket launching pad that appears to prove the militant group has been firing from areas heavily populated with civilians.

Correspondent Gallagher Fenwick says the site, in Gaza City, is some 50 metres from a hotel where the majority of international media is staying, and just 100 metres from a UN building.

"This type of setup is at the heart of the debate," says Gallagher. "The Israeli army has repeatedly accused the Palestinian militants of shooting from within densely populated civilian areas and that is precisely the type of setup we have here.”

The launching pad is also where the FRANCE 24 team had a close call last week. During a live cross to the Paris studio, a rocket was fired overhead, forcing Gallagher and his crew to take cover.

(It looks like journalists are getting tired of being exploited and threatened by Hamas...)

FYI I don't support Israel's actions here either.

If you are an Israeli tell your government to stop retaliating to Hamas rockets. Tell them you don't want to live in fear of attack. Tell them you want peace.

If you are Palestinian tell Hamas them to stop firing rockets at Israel, tell them you want peace, that you want to live, that you want your children to live.

Hate and retaliation can only end in more bloodshed, suffering and pain.
 
Normally I don't express myself about this kind of conflict situations. However, the protests in various cities such as The Hague and Paris starting to annoy me. It seems that these protesters do not understand what is really happening.

Yet it is quite simple:
The residents of Gaza are forced to live with terrorists. These terrorists attack Israel with rockets and hide behind civilians. With the aim of publishing photographs of civilian casualties.

So this is not a war between Palestinians and Israel but a war between terrorists and Israel.

During the protests, synagogues are attacked instead of embassies. Go figure.

The israeli response to threats from Gaza seems sometimes more like reprisals than a millitary operation, It reminds me much of what British forces did in Malaysia all those years ago.

I can't find recent figures for the numbers killed in rocket attacks from Gaza this year but in the 10 years before 2012 there were around 65 deaths. Contrast that with the number of civilians caught up in the collateral damage from the IDF actions.

No war is fair and nobody should have to live in the shadow of terrorist attacks nor with them sheltering in your own streets but even through the selective lens of western news agencies like the BBC it at times seems that israel's actions may well do more to motivate recruitment of their enemies in Gaza than to end the attacks.

Nice to see major non steam games coming to Linux 
 
Civilization: Beyond Earth will support Linux at launch.

The next game in the popular Civilization series will support Linux on launch day. Civilization: Beyond Earth is a spiritual successor to the popular space-based strategy title Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri from 1999.

#Linux   #Civilization  
Sid Meier's next Civilization game, titled 'Beyond Earth', will be available on Linux at launch later this year.

Hamas continues to fire rockets through today's cease fire. Despite this Israel shows its good faith by continuing to keep the cease fire right to the end.

Psalms 120:7 
I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war! 

This is the second cease fire Hamas has rejected. It seems that Hamas does not want peace. If the people of Palestine want peace then they may have to rise up and overthrow Hamas themselves.

Israel's attempts to stop Hamas have resulted in unacceptable civilian casualties. It is becoming more and more clear that Israel's attacks cannot destroy Hamas and are only fuelling hate, and strengthening its enemies.

If Hamas is to be removed and peace restored to Palestine, then the people of Palestine must rise up and do it.
Latest development casts new doubt on international efforts to broker an end to 19 days of fighting

Don't you see that rejecting peace means more children will die. How can you want that, its horrible.
