Attacks on Gaza Strip

By JG Vibes
November 16, 2012

Troubling news has been coming in all week about the escalation of the ongoing conflict between the colony of Israel and the people who happen to live outside of its expanding borders.

Sadly, reports have recently surfaced that a permanent truce was actually being negotiated at the very same time that Israeli military forces assassinated one of the head figures for the Hamas regime.

According to Global Research:

“Just hours before Israel assassinated Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari on Tuesday, he received the draft proposal of a permanent truce agreement with Israel. But Israel approved the airstrike anyways, choosing escalation over resolution.

Israeli peace activist Gershon Baskin, who helped negotiate the release of Gilad Shalit and maintained contacts with Hamas leaders, said the truce agreement included protocols for maintaining a cease-fire in the case of cross-border violence between Israel and Gaza.

Baskin told Haaretz that senior officials in Israel knew about the pending truce agreement, but nevertheless approved the assassination, presumably knowing it would terminate the truce and escalate the conflict with Gaza.

“I think that they have made a strategic mistake,” Baskin said, “which will cost the lives of quite a number of innocent people on both sides.” He added that Jabari’s assassination “killed the possibility of achieving a truce.”

“This blood could have been spared. Those who made the decision must be judged by the voters, but to my regret they will get more votes because of this,” he added.

“According to Baskin,” Haaretz reports, “during the past two years Jabari internalized the realization that the rounds of hostilities with Israel were beneficial neither to Hamas nor to the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip and only caused suffering, and several times he acted to prevent firing by Hamas into Israel.”

Even when Hamas was pulled into participating in rocket fire, its rockets would always land in open spaces. “And that was intentional,” Baskin said.”

The situation that is developing here is very sad, like all wars it is just innocent people getting caught in the middle of authoritarian psychopaths who are fighting over power.  The people of Israel have a nationalistic militant government that doesn’t represent their will, while on the other end the people of Palestine also have a nationalistic militant government that doesn’t represent their will.  The so called “leaders” of the Palestinian territories are Hamas and Fatah, they are two militant Islamic factions that in no way represent the people of Palestine.

As of right now it looks like all talks of peace are off, The IntelHub will be paying close attention to all aspects of this issue as the story develops.

      Complete and total nonsense. The Muslims don’t want peace with Israel. They want to murder every Jew in Israel.

      Beware of comments making baseless accusations. The state that falsely calls itself “Israel” pays many people a large sum of money to spread its version of deceit.

      What a shot of malarkey.

      Israel GAVE Gaza to them, and gets rockets, kidnappings, bombs, threats, random civilian victims, and constant threats to be wiped off the face of the earth for the gratitude.

      Quit trying to spread this stinky brown stuff around. No matter how you wrap it, it ain’t perfume.
