Hamas: attack a valid response to aggression
17 Apr 2006
Modified: 09:47:01 AM
Hamas leaders called Monday's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv a legitimate response to Israeli aggression.

"We think that this operation ... is a direct result of the policy of the occupation and the brutal agression and siege committed against our people," said Khaled Abu Helal, spokesman for the Hamas-led Interior Ministry.

Earlier, Moussa abu Marzouk, a Hamas leader abroadd, told Al-Jazeera television that "the Israeli side must feel what the Palestinian feels, and the Palestinian defends himself as much as he can."

Since the start of April, Israeli forces have fired more than 2,000 artillery shells into the northern Gaza Strip.

Some analysts speculate that Israel’s provocative and lawless seige of a Jericho jail and kidnapping of political prisoners in March made Palestinian retaliation inevitable.

If you don't have Peter Lowney to shove people around at your protest, you don't have a protest. Get him and get yourself a nice dishtowel to wear as a scarf.

The Palestinians are under occupation. They do not have artillery, helicopters or powerful allies like Israel, the oppressor who has imprisoned them, yet they fight on. I applaud the courage of the Palestinian people. Al-Aqsa Brigades are freedom fighters and will prevail, Inshallah. Justice for Israel is inevitable, Inshallah.

not much courage to convince a depressed person to blow himself up in a market. You tell him he'll be loved forever. Of course working people, mostly Jews but sometimes Arabs get mangled in these attacks. Just like when Israelis blast a neighborhood where some Islamist loony is hiding and a bunch of innocents are killed. Death is not a poster. It sucks. It hurts. Families are badly damaged. Condemn every single piece of Mideast violence and don't let any of these killers think they are serving some Cause. Israel and Palestine are not worth the death of one child. If you had children, you would know that.

2000 artillery shells? That doesn't sound like very many. Not to Democraps and Republitrash who have already used American taxes to replace the 2000 rounds. And it doesn't sound like very many to the electorate that continues to vote for those same politicians.

"stop the killing"? How about "stop politicians who supply Zionist crusaders with the weapons of death and destruction that we ALL know Zionists use to destroy our Palestinian neighbors and create the hatred that also finds its way back at Americans in the form of terrorism"??? America's whore politicians sold out America's peace and then hide in our neighborhoods. America's whore politicians, and the scum who votes for them, have sacrificed thier fellow American's lives for the Zionist's bloodsoaked crusade.

Palestinians refuse to go quietly into this good night. Sounds like a valid "cause" to me. And it sounded like a valid cause to Americans who supplied European freedom fighters with the means to fight back against murderous thieving Nazis destroying the European's lives.

I am sick and tired of people who supply Zionists with the means to destroy palestinian lives and lifes finally speeking out when Palestinians fight back against murderous thieves. Why didn't we hear from them yesterday, or last week, or last month, when it was only Palestinians dying in the Zionist's war of conquest? Now that the Zionist's murderous theft of Palestinian lands gets Zionists killed, we hear from them, scapegoating Palestinians for the hostilities the Zionist's bloodsoaked war of conquest created.
