Why Doesn't the World Call on Hamas to Surrender?

dybmh

דניאל יוסף בן מאיר הירש
I'm happy to call out evil wherever I see it. I believe you're rationalising because you don't want to accept that Israel is doing evil. I've seen this before.

You assume that I'm wrong, because you've seen this before I must be the same as the others. So you won't listen to me? I'm guilty of faulty reasoning till proven innocent? Because you've seen this before?

Because we can both see the wreckage from months of bombing. All the dead babies, women, men. The thirst and hunger of the hundreds of thousands of people who have been living in hell for months on end. Coralled from camp to camp, not knowing if they will be alive this time tomorrow. All the homes destroyed, the hospitals, the schools, the refugee camps.

You believe the "news" coverage? What you're seeing on the "news" are headlines nothing more. Have you analyzed the circumstances which produced the wreckage you're referring to? You assume that it must be evil, because, you cannot fathom anything else?

You mention headlines, are you aware that the Israeli military has been targetting and killing journalists at an unprecedented rate?

It's not true. They're not targeting journalists. Someone told you that and you believe it?

Even Putin does not murder the press like this. Why would they do that, do you think?

Why do you believe it's true?

Is your depth of knowledge on this any deeper than the headlines? Have you read about the hostages which were rescued? They were held in multiple locations by "civilians", in densely populated areas. They were rescued from a refugee camp where the "civilians" were firing on the IDF from their homes preventing their recovery.

Are we to ignore the hindering of humanitarian aid and conduct at Teiman Prison?

Or, for that matter, the challenge faced by the Mandaeans in Michigan and elsewhere as Karsa approaches.

But, before address either (or both) of these issues, would yo mind telling us where you've addressed the question posed in the OP? Thanks.

Post #84.

The bit you've quoted is in response to the suggestion above it.

It's obvious that Israel supporters have entered the denial and delusion phase to justify their continuing support of atrocities. There's no reasoning with people in that stage.

.... :oops:o_O The crazy is strong with that sentence...

Maybe try again when you come back to us from Bizarro World. That tangent about the UN had nothing to do with my post, either.

Take away the missiles: institute an actual justice system, and you remove the power of Hamas to kill and terrorize the populace. That is what is happening. Keep in mind that most of Hamas has been cleared out through warnings, evacuations, bunker busting, tunnel plugging and raids. Its been slow work to save lives: the destruction of tunnels and weapons, since Hamas hide as civilians. Obviously most of the soldiers will not be killed, but the weapons will be seized or destroyed.

Put in a court system, get the economy going again. This is what the UN was supposed to be doing while it was in charge of Gaza. The UN should have been doing this, but it was working against the people all the while smiling at them; because it was and is a council of dictators.

The UN's agents in media claim that clearing the weapons bunkers is merciless and unkind, and its South Africa lawsuit blames Israel for Gaza's suffering completely ignoring the UN's role. The UN's own causative role is ignored.

Lets not leave out the most important player in this situation: the UN. This situation is its design. None of this was necessary and could have been avoided if the UN was doing its job after it asked Israel to release control of Gaza strip. Its agents are in there provoking war in the meantime. Billions of dollars sent into Gaza, and most of it is turned into weapons and bunkers; and the UN is there monitoring it all and saying nothing and even supporting the schools as they teach killing. The UN controls the money, yet it somehow pretends it doesn't know what's happening to the aid money.

Gaza is still considered to be occupied territories so the occupier is still responsible, which is israel.
If people of Gaza are still under siege how can they thrive and better the economy. The borders are closed, no airport, depended on water and electricity. No control of what comes in m.

We should be fair and acknowledge Israel isn’t the sweetheart in this conflict concerning how children are taught that Palestinians are evil.

The UN's agents in media claim that clearing the weapons bunkers is merciless and unkind, and its South Africa lawsuit blames Israel for Gaza's suffering completely ignoring the UN's role. The UN's own causative role is ignored.
You can’t ask a population that’s under siege to lay their weapons. A resistance has a right of fighting their oppressors under international law

Its not under seige by Israel if the UN countries won't let the people there leave. Israel captured this from Egypt in 1967, but in 2005 Israel left. I notice that Gaza hasn't been attacking Egypt, yet Egypt maintains a blockade against it. Why doesn't Gaza attack Egypt? Because the UN doesn't hate Egypt. It hates Israel and foments hatred against it. It was fine for Egypt to attack Israel before. The UN was fine with that. It was not Ok with Israel's victory which was unexpected. UN is the occupier of Gaza, but Israel is probably going to take over again. We'll see what happens; but what has not happened is the wholesale slaughter that the UN tried to instigate.

I'm telling you what it looks like to me. Maybe I'm wrong.

You believe the "news" coverage? What you're seeing on the "news" are headlines nothing more. Have you analyzed the circumstances which produced the wreckage you're referring to?
I only know what I see and read, yes. I was reading the accounts of Gazans, documenting the absolute hell they are living in, until I couldn't stomach any more. My partner followed a Palestinian jounalist in Gaza for a while until his account went quiet. I suspect he is dead now.

You assume that it must be evil, because, you cannot fathom anything else?
I'm not sure what other way I could describe the massacre of civilians, including little children. To me, their lives were just as valuable as the Israelis killed by Hamas in October.

And the ones still alive, being treated like vermin. Homes turned to rubble. Cutting off food and aid and water. Putting them through hell like they just don't matter at all. I think the word for this is evil.

It's not true. They're not targeting journalists. Someone told you that and you believe it?
Reporters Without Borders and the Committe to Protect Journalists have both published on the matter.

This pattern isn't new either. The IDF have been killing journalists with impunity for quite some time. The frequency, though, is new.

Why do you believe it's true?

No, I haven't but I am glad that they are free. If this is true it doesn't surprise me.

just because people cannot leave there, doesn’t mean it’s not under siege. It’s still occupied territories no matter how you wanna frame it

Why in gods name should the people of Gaza attack Egypt?
Egypt has a right to blockade their borders. for what reason? They don’t need to give explanations for that and the UN has no power to open the borders of Egypt.
It hates Israel and foments hatred against it. It was fine for Egypt to attack Israel before. The UN was fine with that. It was not Ok with Israel's victory which was unexpected.

if just think that since this conflict started that the UN and other countries of the UN are tired of this conflict not being resolved. Every time it’s back on the schedule. And maybe you might think that UN is in the fault but the UN didn’t started this mess and other countries that uses their veto to stop any resolution is also not helping their effort. Having said that I do think they are put in position because of that to protect the people that are in between the conflict which is the Palestinians people. We have to agree that both party’s Hamas and Israel have their demands and will never work together so the un is getting nowhere. The only parties that are responsible is that of the US , Israel government and Hamas.

I don't demand explanations from Egypt. I know very well Hamas and Egypt are working together. What could be more plain since the exposure of tunnels beneath Rafah gate. Calling this beseiged is ridiculous.

You mean all of the dictators are tired of the conflict which in no way affects them except that it embarrasses the west. Not very believable since they continually pass multiple resolutions against a country that is far better than many which are ignored by the UN council of dictators.

Hamas has no demands for Egypt? Its not terrorizing Egyptian citizens but only Israeli ones. Almost as if this whole thing is a farce to provoke Israel to massacre people, dirty its name and tarnish the ideals of the western nations. This strategy did work against the USA with Iraq and Libya. We were dolts, and we made a stupid move. We tarnished our ideals. We discouraged the next generation.

Throughout history, when one side of a war is losing, it's almost always the case that the losing side surrenders.

Why isn't the world calling on Hamas to surrender? If "the world" truly has humanitarian goals, the best way to stop civilian casualties in this war would be for Hamas to surrender.

Hamas does not care about people of Palestine. They are a terrorist group who use Palestinians as their shield.
This war is not between Israel and Palestinians. It is between Hamas and Israel. Hamas started the war, claiming to do this to free the Palestine, where in fact it was only to do terrorism and hatred.
Palestinian people would be better off if there was no Hamas.

The best way was, if Egypt allows Palestinians as refugees for a period of time to flee from the lands of war. Once Isreal finishes with the terrorists, then people come back to their home land. Then Isreal and othe Counties help them, rebuild their country.

I assume you are referring t groups in Egypt rather then the government of Egypt, if so then it’s the friet I am hearing this

well there I have to agree with you. The international court have not being consistent in prosecuting leaders in the west and others around the world.

yeah that’s not really a risk that Egypt is gonna take. You cannot ask from a country to take millions of refugees, that’s just foolish thinking

You are talking about terrorist but what is your opnion on that Israel created themselves this issues, help creating a organization to undermine Arafat and his party?

So Egypt's government claims not to be in control of its border?

This probably creates some resentment at the UN, sometimes.

It was stupid and cold.
