    I'm sure Obama will have a chat with them and they will change their evil ways.

    Members of a Gaza [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]family[/FONT] whose farm was turned into a "fortress" by Hamas fighters have reported that they were helpless to stop Hamas from using them as human shields.

    They told the official Palestinian Authority daily newspaper that for years [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Hamas[/FONT] had used their property and homes as [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]military[/FONT] installations from which the group would launch rockets into Israel, dig tunnels and store arms. According to the victims, those who tried to object were shot in the legs by Hamas operatives.

    Palestinian Media Watch quoted the official Palestinian Authority daily, Al-Hayat al-Jadida as reporting on January 27, "The Abd Rabbo family kept quiet while Hamas fighters turned their farm in the Gaza strip into a fortress. Right now they are waiting for the aid promised by the [Hamas] movement after Israel bombed the farm and turned it into ruins."

    According to the report, the hill on which the Abd Rabbo family lives overlooks Sderot, making it an ideal military position for Hamas fighters.
    The Abd Rabbo family members emphasized to the paper that they were not Hamas activists and that they were still loyal to the Fatah movement, but that they had been unable to prevent the armed squads from entering their neighborhood at night.

    In more ways than one.

    They are certainly a different kind of enemy. Really, using the word "evil" may sound simplistic, but it really fits in this case.

    This goes right in line with reports that came out of Gaza that Hamas had booby-trapped hospitals, schools and the like with explosives. They would plant explosives around the sensitive building, then have snipers and/or RPG fire directed at Israeli forces from there. As soon as Israel would direct their fire at the Hamas shooter, they'd blow the explosives, rush out with cameras and media to report the Israeli "attrocity". I saw one FLIR feed that clearly showed several highly suspicious secondary explosions after an Israeli helicopter fired .50 cal rounds at a target...

    They set up dummies dressed in uniform at the entrance of tunnels and tried to use them to capture Israeli soldiers for hostages/torture. Pure garbage. It's about time the fighting, then cease fire, then fighting again, then cease fire ended with an all-out *** whooping.

    Same terrorists who fired missiles at Christains who walked across a sacred part of Jerusalem during Christmas.

    And let no person forget...Hamas is a proxy army for Iran...funded, armed, and directed from Tehran. THESE are the tactics of the folks we're just going to have a pleasant little sit-down "dialog" with...you know....to find some common ground so we can all "move forward".

    Iran is about to meet the same fate as Hamas pretty soon.

    You notice how the main stream media has NOTHING about this.
    All about the evil Israeli's. They barely mention the rocket attacks and other attacks. Th UN blathers about their schools but will not admit they are being used as well.

    Artie, I hope you are right. We know Obama does not have the balls to deal with Iran. It sounds like we will have to have Israel do the heavy lifting yet again.
