  • #IsraelUnderAttack Israel/Hamas: Your Questions Answered by ADL By this morning's count, Hamas terrorists in Gaza have fired some 14,000 rockets at Israeli civilians in the last 8 years--and 2000 rockets at Israeli civilians in the last 2 weeks alone. They have done so while deliberately using Palestinian civilians as human shields, intentionally storing and firing rockets in locations chosen to endanger Palestinian civilians in the event Israel tries to stop the rocket fire on its own civilians. It was the Palestinian Representative to the United Nations who correctly described each and every Hamas rocket as "a crime against humanity." It was former President Bill Clinton who best described the truly vicious way that Hamas operates. "Hamas was perfectly well aware of what would happen if they started raining rockets into Israel," he said. "They have a strategy designed to force Israel to kill their own civilians so that the rest of the world will condemn them." And it was Representative Joseph Kennedy III who identified who bears responsibility for the deaths in Gaza and Israel alike. "The violent, deliberate targeting of innocent Israeli civilians is deplorable and must end," he said. "Israel has every right to defend her people from terror, and our country stands by her side." This is not complicated. Hamas must stop the killing. Jeffrey S. Robbins ADL New England Regional Board Chair Robert O. Trestan ADL New England Regional Director SHARE THE FACTS
