After enduring the perpetual attacks from the Palestinians Israel has finally decided to fight back. Air raids were launched against Gaza, resulting in over 200 palestinians (mostly Hamas members) dead and many hundreds more wounded. Hamas fired Qassam rockets into Israeli territory as an immediate reply, BBC states, but it's not so much a reply to the Israeli actions since these very same rocket attacks are what brought on the Israeli strikes. The arab world is pissed and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon is deeply alarmed. Needless to say, anytime the arab tyrants pretend to care about the innocent lives lost, while calling the suicide bombers martyrs, not to mention oppressing their own citizens, Israel is in the right. The United Nations is not much better in their objectivity. Just in the last conflict between Israel and Lebanon which was initiated by the Lebanese*, the UN begged Israel not to finish off the Hezbollah by promising to prevent them from rearming if Israel would immediately cease its operations. Ofcourse, as soon as Israel complied, the UN has reneged on that promise. UN's claims claims of objectivy mean absolutely nothing and their promises should be disregarded.
Israel needs to stick this one out, not believe any promises that would delegate their security to any international organizations and completely demolish the Hamas. Otherwise, after a year of relative quiet it will all repeat itself.
* Yes, the Lebanese. I refuse to put that one solely on Hezbollah as Lebanon is still a sovereign country, hence their refusal to deploy troops on their border and their allowance for the Hezbollah to operate freely and attack from the Lebanese land makes them resposnible.
