Don’t Be Deceived By Hamas

There are two sides to the current Israel/Hamas conflict: Those who believe violence is justified to achieve an end and those who don’t.

“I won’t have this namby-pamby, wishy-washy nonsense about not hitting people who deserve it. A good trashing is what’s needed in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred.” — Aunt Marge Dursley

There are two sides to the current flare up in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and they aren’t Israel, and its supporters, versus Palestine.

On one side of this conflict, are those who think violence against innocent people is acceptable, if the cause is just enough. On the other side, are those who don’t.

Either you agree with Ms. Dursley, fictional as she is; or you don’t.

Whether or not it is morally acceptable or even justifiable to evict a family from its home- which is what Hamas claims to be the reason for their latest attack on Israel- is a complicated question for the ages, subjective.

What if the property is owned by someone else and the eight Palestinian families in question have been legally evicted in a process which took Israeli courts decades to resolve?
