Over the past two days, terrorist organization Hamas, in partnership with Islamic Jihad, launched more than 300 rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israeli communities. Such attacks are so common in the Jewish State that most nations’ news organization rarely report the Hamas or the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist incidents.
The Islamic terrorists’ goal isn’t just to target Israeli soldiers, but to murder civilians. While the international community refuses to condemn the action of Hamas, the United States is paying close attention. The flow of rockets, missiles and mortar shells from the world’s most active supporter of terrorism especially against Israel, or “Little Satan,” and the United States, or “Big Satan.”
The Assistant to the President of the USA & Special Representative for International Negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, stated on the social media giant Twitter that: “Terrorists in Gaza are again attacking Israel with tools of war. These rocket & mortar attacks on Israeli towns must be condemned by all. Israel is forced once again into military action to defend its citizens. We stand with Israel as it defends itself against these attacks.”
In 2014, at the height of the controversial nuclear negotiations, President Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry, gave a milquetoast performance and gave everything possible to Iran — money, food, medical supplies, etc. — yet received nothing but the word of known liars and butchers.
During that time, 20 rockets suspected of being stashed by Islamist terrorists in Gaza were discovered inside of a United Nations-run school located in the Gaza Strip, according to Middle Eastern news reports.
The facility is run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which admitted in a press statement that the rockets, suspected of belonging to Hamas, were discovered during a routine building inspection.
The UNRWA officials in Gaza claim the school was vacant at the time of the shocking discovery of the rockets, but it’s not known how long they were being illegally stored in the school. UNRWA officials stated to reporters that it is investigating the incident and they condemn those responsible for using a school filled with children as an arsenal for its weapons “This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law,” said UNRWA.
This discovery of suspected terrorists’ weapons is the first time a United Nations relief facility was used to store a cache of deadly weapons. They also noted that storing the weapons therein made the school children and staff targets for Israeli military forces.
Groups such as Hamas are often discovered to use women and children as shields and they have hidden their weapons caches in schools, mosques, and even private homes of non-Islamist Palestinians.
According to the organization United Nations Watch, Israel has never been a favored nation by those in charge of UN programs and the majority of its member nations. On the organization’s web site it states:
“The countless anti-Israel resolutions and related debates consume an astonishing proportion of the UN community’s precious resources. This year, during the 61th Session of the General Assembly (2006-2007), the time spent by ambassadors on enacting the 22nd anti-Israel resolution of the year was time not spent on passing a single resolution on Sudan’s genocide in Darfur. Diplomats at foreign ministries or UN missions have a limited amount of time to devote to any particular UN session. Because every proposed UN resolution is subjected to intensive review by various levels and branches of government, a direct result of the anti-Israel texts is a crippling of the UN’s ability to tackle the world’s ills.”
