Take a look at the picture very carefully.
On the right are rockets shot from Hamas in the Gaza strip, an offensive system at Israel and the rockets on the left are
rockets shot from Israel's Iron Dome, a defensive system. This picture in itself is enough information to understand
what is happening in the Mid-East. It is also interesting to know that the missiles on the right are supplied by Iran who
has repeatedly threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the map for decades.
Let make this situation personal. Let presume for discussion sake that Canada's French speaking citizens was our enemy and and they claimed that the state of Maine was once their country before it became a colony. After endless fighting the U. S. gave Maine to them as peace token so they would have a land of their own to settle the dispute. Once settled, they used that land as a base to attack New Hampshire and the U. S. Government defended New Hampshire from their attack and the main stream media news cycle claimed that the U. S. was the aggressor and blamed it for the hostilities.
That is precisely what is going on between Israel and the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip. Israel has extended an open hand even to the point of allowing the Muslim world to live in their country in peace and even keep their Mosques at the old Temple Mount. Maybe it is Judaism and Christianity that stand in their way of forcing their faith on the rest of the world that motivates them. There is such a hatred and under any another situation the vile words would be called hate speech and the attacks hate crimes. Some how they get a pass and that should make you stop and think.
