Gaza Rocket Kills One In Israel - While EU Envoy Is Visiting Hamas

Just another gesture from Israel's 'peace partners', I suppose.

Today's attack was on the Israeli community of Netiv Ha'asara and killed an agricultural worker from Thailand as the rocket hit an agricultural hothouse.he apparently wasn't able to get to a shelter in time.

It happened about an hour after the EU's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton paid a diplomatic visit to Hamas.

While the WAPO story I've linked to, mostly written by Palestinian shill Nidal al-Mughrabi does its very best to put the onus for this this on an 'outside militant group', even he can't hide that Hamas took credit for it and that Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum did nothing to distance itself from the attack, saying, "The government of the Zionist enemy, which has launched a war against the Palestinian people and against holy sites and al-Aqsa mosque, bears the responsibility for all the escalation."

In reality, very little happens in Gaza without Hamas okaying it.

Ashton and UN chief Ban Ki-moon issued the usual pro-forma condemnations.But of course, they're still going to keep funding Hamas through UNRWA and insisting Israel and only Israel (not Egypt) open its borders with Gaza.

And if Israel retaliates, I'm sure they'll have problems with Jews defending themselves as well.


please helps me write more gooder!

I'm sure we can expect an outraged condemnation of this insulting action from Ms. Ashton and the EU any time now. How could Hamas humiliate their partners so publicly while they were paying a diplomat visit?
