Since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, Hamas and its co-jihadists have fired more than 8,000 rockets into Israel. They have been conducting an unrelenting Nazi-style rocket blitz for years, except during cease-fires that are hastily negotiated after Israel strikes back. Hamas’s rocket blitz has intensified massively in recent days to new heights. Over the past several days, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired more than 550 rockets and mortars from Gaza into Israel, with the intent to kill and terrorize innocent civilians, including children.
What the world fails to remember when they accuse Israel of being a repressive regime is that Israel withdrew completely from Gaza in 2005 and has done everything possible to keep the border open, including keeping it open while under Hamas rocket attacks to provide emergency medical help to Palestinians.
