It seems that these Gazans feel that they achieved their objectives.

re: Not a good batting average for Palestinians


Did you watch that trackfan? Did you see what they were celebrating? Not the Ceasefire, but the fact that they can reach Tel Aviv. They didn't seem concerned that this "demonstration" cost them over 10x as many lives as the israelis. They just know they can now hit Israeli civilians in a bigger city.

This is the peace appeasement gets.

As an Aside: reach for the star Hamas you can hit Tel Aviv, Israel could still demolish the entire Gaza Strip if they wanted to. I mean turn it into a parking lot. All of it, THe Whole thing. So victory Hamas.

I'm sure there are a bunch of videos showing Israelis celebrating the deaths of Palestinians.

What? There aren't any? I'm shocked!

re: Not a good batting average for Palestinians


There is a great story in the Jerusalem Post that puts the whole issue of violent resistance vs nonviolent resistance into perspective:

quote:

Last week Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas cut short a visit to Switzerland and returned to Ramallah to follow the new round of fighting between Israel and Hamas.

But ever since his arrival in Ramallah, he has not been able to do anything other than deliver televised speeches and dispatch a top Fatah official to the Gaza Strip.

Abbas’s call for holding an emergency Arab summit to discuss the Israeli “aggression” on the Gaza Strip seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

His call to the international community to halt the IDF offensive also seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

The leaders of Egypt, Qatar and Turkey, who met in Cairo earlier this week to discuss ways of ending the violence, did not even bother to invite him to the talks.

Instead, they invited leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad to the Egyptian capital as part of their effort to achieve a cease-fire.

From his prison cell in Israel, jailed Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti called on Abbas on Monday to head immediately to the Gaza Strip to show solidarity with its residents.


But Abbas, whom Hamas kicked out of Gaza in 2007, chose to ignore Barghouti’s call. And he has good reasons to stay away from the Gaza Strip.

Hamas leaders have repeatedly stated over the past few years that they will not permit Abbas to return to Gaza unless he abandons the peace process with Israel and stops arresting supporters of the Islamist movement in the West Bank.

Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas leader, said recently that the biggest threat to Abbas, if and when he decided to visit the Gaza Strip, would not come from Hamas, but from disgruntled Fatah activists affiliated with the faction’s former security commander Muhammad Dahlan.

Visits to the Gaza Strip by the Egyptian prime minister, Tunisian foreign minister and Arab League secretary-general are another sign of how Abbas has become irrelevant.

The Arab delegations visiting the Gaza Strip see no reason they should talk to Abbas or visit him in his Ramallah office. As far as they are concerned, Abbas has no role to play in the current crisis, especially considering that he has no control over the 1.5 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. . . . . .

Abbas will undoubtedly emerge as the biggest loser from the current conflict.

On the one hand, Abbas has consistently preached nonviolence but world leaders, including the U.S. ignore him, while Israel continues to confiscate Palestinian property and expel Palestinians from their homes in order to build Jewish-only settlements in the West Bank.

On the other hand, Hamas has consistently preached violent resistence, and in return they got the withdrawal of all settlers from Gaza, they're being embraced and holding meetings with many of the world's top leaders and now they've just negotiated an end to the six-year-old blockade that Israel had imposed on them.

If Israel is so interested in having peaceful neighbors, why does it give rewards to its violent neighbors while punishing its peaceful neighbors?
