Hamas is a cult of death

Let's look at the truths about the Gaza crisis.

Facts: Hamas refused to honor the cease fire agreement. Hamas has long used civilians as human shields. Hamas occupies homes, schools, hospitals, mosques in order to stockpile weapons and to shield their terrorists to attack Israel.

Fact: Israel gives warning to the Palestinians before they begin a massive assault naming the specific targets. In many cases Hamas orders their civilians back into their homes. Why? To flee would appear to be cooperating with Israel. Hamas has sent well over 1,000 rockets into Israel targeting population centers, ignoring military targets.

Fact: Hamas has numerous tunnels under the border into Israel where terrorists attempt murder and kidnapping. Yet President Mahmoud Abass of the Palestinian Authority claims Israel is guilty of "crimes against humanity."

Israel has attempted peace by honoring the cease fire but Hamas would not. It seems like the stated goal of the complete destruction of Israel is their only goal. It is unfortunate when civilians are victims of war. Hamas is a cult of death, Jews, their own civilians and their own selves.

I suppose they believe that more corpses created in Gaza will turn world opinion against Israel as the bad guys.
