Gaza Articles: Humanitarianism and Politics

Here are some articles on the conflict in Gaza outlining the political dynamics of the conflict - especially in the context of the rockets fired from South Lebanon into Israel yesterday. I've also included links to articles highlighting some of the humanitarian atrocities committed [predominantly by Israeli troops] in the Gaza strip:


  1. You guys are so going to get into this mess again. It makes me cry by anticipation... :-(

    Alaphast, why do you think Lebanon is going to get into this mess again? Everything thing in the news says that HA is staying out of it. I thought at first that HA might move to help Hamas, but Hamas is looking like it's beyond help at this point. I hope Lebanon remains in peace!

    I don't understand how any objective observer could blame Israel for civilian casualties and not blame Hamas AT LEAST as much. Weapons stored in mosques and homes. Human shields. Booby trapped schools. Shame on them. And shame on their teachers, Hizbullah.

  4. Anonymous: because I believe some people are going to take advantage of the situation to advance their own political interests. I hope not, but I have observed this for too many years not to realize the pattern. Anyway, I hope I am wrong.

    Alaphast, I hope you are wrong too, but when I look at the overall situation, I have to agree with you.


  6. By the way, I am happy to say that I was wrong and proven to be so by the facts. :-) For once, I am rejoicing about Lebanon.
