As I read The Bellingham Herald articles about the war between Israel and Hamas I do not see the printing of the whole truth as I see it. Hamas is a terrorist organization connected to 9/11 here in the U.S., voted in by the Palestinian people who have continually stated that they will not quit until Israel in annihilated. I believe Hamas does not want peace with Israel. I believe they hide their rockets in schools, hospitals and private homes so that they can get the sympathy from the world for all the Palestinians being killed.
Israel sends a warning to all the Palestinians by dropping leaflets, phone calls and emails to warn the people to get out before they shoot any rockets anywhere. I believe the people do not leave because they are taught it is an honor to die for Allah. What other country do you know that warns the people that they are going to send rockets at them? No other country does that.
The rockets from Hamas have been going on for years and Israel has been very tolerant. What would the U.S. do if Mexico was rocketing Texas and Arizona? We would not tolerate that for one minute.
