Hamas Hiding in Maternity Wards - Naomi Ragen


According to YNET,
(http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3647934,00.html)- (Hebrew)
the head of Israeli's intelligence reported today that Hamas terrorists are
hiding in hospitals and maternity wards, wearing the clothes of doctors and
nurses. They are moving rocket launchers into crowded residential
neighborhoods, and thus their success in shooting over 45 rockets into
Israeli towns this morning alone.

The difficulty of rooting out terrorists who hide behind newborn babies and
cancer patients is hard for a civilized country like

Israel to deal with. Israel allowed 100 truckloads of medical supplies and
basic food items to enter Gaza yesterday, along with

five new ambulances donated by Turkey. This morning, the Gazans requested
that Israeli hospitals take in two small children injured in the
hostilities. Israel allowed them in, even as Hamas continued to bomb.

Mr. Olmert and Ms. Livni have reportedly overruled our Defense Minister's
desire to cave in and give a 48 hour respite for "humanitarian" purposes.
In what war did you ever hear of such a proposal? Where were the
humanitarian requests for "respites" from Hamas rockets on our population
centers from France in the last six years?

Ehud Barak, our former wishy-washy noodle of a Prime Minister, who was
practically begging to sign the country away to Arafat, has a nickname in
Israel. He's known as Ehud "Barach" meaning "to run away." He ran away in
Lebanon, leading to the last Lebanese War, and now he is getting to run away
from Gaza.

We can only hope Israeli voters run away from him in the upcoming elections.

  1. God bless Israel in the quest to defend itself and its people. We are saddened by the lack of support from the international community, but we hope that Israel's efforts will bring relief from Hamas aggression. You are absolutely right! Wars are not interrupted for "humanitarian purposes", and such a demand should not be made of Israel. Hamas should be ashamed of using women and children as human shields, but then this is nothing new. This is their standard mode of operation.
