Israeli Belligerency

Thursday’s detainment of Palestinian Ministers and the subsequent bombing of the Palestinian Interior Ministry by Israel is a blatant violation of Palestine’s sovereignty and freedom. To secure the release of one Israeli soldier, Israel detains 60 Hamas leaders. What gives Israel the right to go storming into an independent state and detain it’s government officials? And then threaten further military action?

Mind boggling.

Israel has been trying its utmost for the last few months to bring down the Hamas government. Economic blockade, refusal to negotiate and now this. And the missiles that are supposedly fired into Israeli territory are attributed to Islamic Jihad! So why detain Hamas officials?

Israel gets away scot-free with the simple advice to “exercise constraint”. But who cares for the poor Palestinians civilians? It’s a total nightmare for them and what exactly did they do to deserve it?

Can someone please explain this?

Can’t say the Palestinians couldn’t see it coming. Hamas is openly hostile to Israel and has publicly stated that a Palestinian state cannot co-exist with Israel.

What gave Hamas the right to imprison one Israeli soldier? It isnt a mtter of one against sixty. Israel and India are different.

Comment by does it matter?

Independent state?
