Violence Resumes in Gaza After Short Informal Lull

The killing resumes

Israel and Hamas are trading accusations today; the informal cease-fire collapsed when explosions hit a Palestinian refugee camp playground and an area near Gaza City’s main hospital. Both sides are blaming the other for the blasts; Israel says they were caused by misfired Hamas rockets, while Hamas blames Israeli shelling.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that at least 10 children were killed as they played in a park in the Shati refugee camp on the western edge of Gaza City. The Palestinian agency attributed the explosions to Israeli missiles.

But Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a spokesman for the Israeli military, denied that Israel had carried out any attacks at Shati or near the main Gaza City hospital, Shifa, saying those blasts “have absolutely nothing to do with us.” He suggested that the explosions had been caused by militant rockets aimed at Israel that had gone astray.

The missile or rocket explosion near Shifa hit an outside wall of the compound and caused damage but no casualties. Plainclothes security officers barred reporters from entering the compound to get close to where the rocket or missile fell.

Who ever did what, the result is the same, innocent people suffer and die, this whole situation is just bloody depressing. It amkes you loose faith in humanity seeing all that misery and Muslim hating loons on one side cheering on the misery and death because they are Muslims, and on the other side the stupid anti Semitic attacks on Jews/synagogues

The Israeli military doesn’t make official statements like this denial unless it is supported by evidence. I suspect the right hand of Hamas does not know what the left hand is doing. However, there are enough dead children already. Both sides need to stop the violence now.

re: #5 Fairly Sure I’m Still Obdicut

Destroying Hamas was never a realistic goal. It’s just not going to happen. This is part of a seemingly endless cycle of Hamas building up their military capability for years, then Israel invading and degrading that capability. It’s happened before and it will happen again. There’s no end game to this.

Reposted from below, with some additional thoughts:

It’s worth a read, even though I find it full of a whole lot of wishful thinking, especially in light of considering Hamas’ statements about long term aspirations. Gazans would certainly benefit from loosening the restrictions on movement, trade, and it would reduce the need to operate smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt (though it would likely persist to avoid tariffs imposed on transactions). A wealthier populace could be less tolerant of the use of force that would devastate what could be built if a true ceasefire were operative. It could have a moderating effect on the radicalization that Hamas uses to stay in power. But Hamas leaders aren’t interested in that.

What would Israel get out of this? Quiet along its most troublesome border, and it would let Israel devote more resources to other enterprises. However, it runs counter to current Israeli govt thinking about the strategic goals of Hamas and the need to contain that threat taking the group at its word.

Each time there’s a chance for a ceasefire, Hamas repeatedly refuses to take it, and Israel has resisted taking it. They’ve taken the easy way out - resuming fighting while civilians are in the cross-fire.

For Israel, the restraint is seen as weakness (both by the Israeli right and by Israel’s neighbors who see a refusal to go after Hamas as a sign Israel’s resolve to protect itself is waning and that they’re willing to absorb a regular barrage of attacks), and the Netenyahu government sees Hamas as an existential threat that must be contained or decimated. For Hamas, it sees not only a revolutionary struggle to build a Palestinian state, but one that eliminates Israel. Yet, Hamas forgoes the building part of the state - building civilian infrastructure and the necessary civilian apparatus that allows a society to flourish, and instead caters to the radicals and extremists (and itself is pushed to more extremism by groups that try to be even more extreme than Hamas already is - PRCs, al Qaeda-inspired groups, and rival Islamic Jihad). Instead, Hamas pours its efforts into building tunnels and bunkers from which to carry out attacks against Israel.

The tunnels are a symptom of the larger problems with Gaza and Hamas. Hamas prioritizes conflict with Israel over all else. The Hamas leadership has no problem with its minions wearing uniforms when it suits them, but in this conflict (as with 2012 and Cast Lead), those uniforms go missing the moment the attacks begin. It uses the situation to hide in and among civilians in Gaza who have no way/means to escape the cross-fire, and who live in fear for being called collaborators.

So, while the UN, EU, and others call for disarming Gaza and demilitarizing the area, not a single proposal has come forward offering up how to do so, let alone who would be involved in the effort.

re: #10 Charles Johnson

Israel continues to get billions in loan guarantees from the US.

Israel continues to get aid from the US to develop and deploy more Iron Dome systems.

And yet Simon thinks that the US isn’t friends of Israel.

It boils down to an irrational hate of Obama and/or Kerry, and assuming that all US actions inure bad outcomes to the US or its allies. The FAA order was on the harsh side - stopping all US flights to TLV, but that also gave Israel a clear message and goal - do what it takes to stop the missile attacks. It was a goal that the Netenyahu government had not been clear about up to that point. Simply “mowing the lawn” as some commentators had called the repeating method of going in and degrading Hamas capabilities only to see them come back within a few months or years’ time isn’t enough, but Netenyahu isn’t going to push for a reoccupation of Gaza, and no one outside of the radical right in Israel is up for that either.

There was a reason that Sharon pushed for and got disengagement (the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza). It just wasn’t practical to continue holding Gaza with the demographics and the cost - both in monetary and in societal/cultural terms.

So, the outcome here has to be in terms of tangible objectives - eliminating X number of tunnels or eliminating rockets capable of hitting TLV or some other metric. Destroying the tunnels was Netenyahu’s stated goal, but the destruction of the missiles is the one that gives him wider latitude to maintain some force inside Gaza.

What makes the conflict tough to deal with is how it’s used as a political football at home. You got an actual senator Cruz accusing Obama of being a secret Hamas sympathizer. And while Bibi isn’t on the level of Cruz, there are a lot of Israeli hardliners too. And that’s not even mentioning Hamas itself.

This is what I mean when I say the Netanyahu administration is not acting in good faith:

timesofisrael.com

State Department denies ceasefire draft was unfair

The State Department goes on the defensive Monday afternoon, critiquing Israeli sources for leaking details of a Gaza ceasefire draft, and then denying allegations that the draft represented a capitulation to Hamas demands.

Leaks and criticism of the sort that Secretary of State John Kerry faced over the weekend are “simply not the way allies and partners treat each other,” State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki complains.

“We were surprised that the draft was leaked to the press,” Psaki tells reporters Monday.

Psaki emphasizes that “there was never a formal US proposal presented,” explaining that the US had instead “sent a confidential-labeled draft of ideas based on an Egyptian proposal.”

Far from including Hamas demands — which, according to complaints by Israeli officials, the US plan did — Psaki says that the “main difference” was that the US draft included more specific language regarding humanitarian aid to Gaza.

Defending against Israeli complaints that the document did not address the problems of Hamas terror tunnels into Israel, Psaki said that there was no mention of tunnels in the Egyptian ceasefire proposal that Israel had already approved, and which Hamas rejected.

The “US objective has been, and remains, stopping the rocket fire against Israeli citizens,” Psaki continues, adding that the first step to such an outcome is the maintenance of a humanitarian ceasefire.

re: #56 Romantic Heretic

That’s one possible outcome. Another is that Fatah is somehow able to assume control via the PA. But any attempt to do so comes with what would likely be considered the label collaborator - Fatah using Israel to get rid of Hamas so as to consolidate power. And unless Fatah can get the border crossings opened and get the economy going in Gaza, they’ll face a huge backlash too.

The other terror groups operating in Gaza are a mix of spinoffs from Hamas, plus PRCs, ex-Fatah, or Islamic Jihad. Some among those might even have ties to al Qaeda as affiliates/co-religionists. It’s not a good mix to be sure, but none appear to have the numbers or funding to make a play if Hamas is overrun by Israel.

So, Israel would likely have to find the least bad option, which is likely to result in Fatah getting handed control. And in the background is the notion that there’s supposed to be elections some time before the end of this year, and Fatah wasn’t exactly doing well.

Hochstetter, who was acting as his own attorney in the marijuana case, refused to approach the bench or acknowledge to Hull that his name was actually Hochstetter, according to court records.

“I believe there has been a mistake. I am not that name,” Hochstetter told Hull, despite appearing in court 16 previous times and answering his name when called.

Truly I say to you, the entire country has gone insane.

Looks like ex-Chief Mark Kessler on the left. When last seen, he was gleeping his way to the border.

I’m surprised the Chief is still alive. The last thing I read from him said he had discovered the cartel/Mexican army and needed 5000 to 10000 rounds of ammo STAT!

New delivery from Amazon has arrived.
After unpacking it, a BIG box with crinkly brown paper inside was leftover.
Kittehs have discovered it and are in heaven.

What, did they deliver a USB thumb drive in a furniture box?

re: #25 Pie-onist Overlord

Yes and no… They have no where permanent to go.. that is true. BUT, they can leave the premises and they can get far enough away until the attack is over.

Here is the thing… Public opinion polls in Gaza prior to the “War” (I am not sure really what else to call this), had Hamas leading the P.A. candidates in a future election. Now granted that while Hamas polled at a 35% favorability rating, Ismail Haniyeh still polled at 54%. Now, supposedly, Hamas’ favorability ratings are even higher.

Of course what this leads to is a discussion related to “Do the people bear responsibility for the actions of their ELECTED leaders?”

I think we need to be not only asking not only “Where do people have to go?” but also, How can one prevent Hamas from being re-elected?”. I do not blame the victims here but I do put the attacks on Hamas’ shoulders.
