Hamas' bloody record screams
By Grant Swank

Hamas cries that Israel is hammering Gaza into oblivion.

Why not?

Israel has been hammered by terrorist Hamas. Hamas is not a nation. It is not a country. It is a killing machine.

Hamas stations itself next to Israel. Hamas has publicly promised to obliterate Israel.

If you lived in New Jersey and had a killing machine in Manhattan constantly publicly threatening to wipe you out, would you do something about that threat?

Israel is doing something about that threat.

Let Hamas' killing machine factual history screech for itself:

Per and the AP: "Hamas is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States and many other Western nations.

"From 2000 to 2004, Hamas was responsible for killing nearly 400 Israelis and wounding more than 2,000 in 425 attacks, according to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

"From 2001 through May 2008, Hamas launched more than 3,000 Qassam rockets and 2,500 mortar attacks against Israeli targets."

Note: Three thousand Hamas propelled Qassam rockets. Note: two thousand five hundred Hamas mortar attacks. All of these leveled against Israel.

And Israel is to sit quietly by pushing prayers into the Wailing Wall? I don't think so.

Yet Hamas wails that Gaza Muslims are bloodied by Israeli attacks. So it must be if one wants to defend its own existence, as Israel seeks to defend its own existence.

So it is, Hamas.

You have asked for it. Now you get it. What's so difficult about figuring out this Hamas created mess?

In addition, Hamas, your Palestinian Authority daily teaches boys and girls how to cut off Israeli heads. These children are taught how to spirt blood via cartoons on their television screens.

Hamas, your Muslim schools instruct students how to flatten infidels, create Islam World Rule and label Jews as "pigs and monkeys."

With your youth reared in a bloodletting philosophy, why then should it be so traumatic for these young people to quake when seeing blood flowing in their own alleys?

Isn't all this simply part of being Muslim in the Middle East? Then why scream as if this is so foreign to your mindset? It is not foreign, it is home base.
