EU envoy lays Gaza blame on Hamas
26-Jan-2009 (7 comments)

A senior European Union official touring war-torn Gaza has blamed the ruling militant movement Hamas for the humanitarian crisis there. Humanitarian aid chief Louis Michel called the destruction left by Israel's offensive "abominable", but said Hamas bore "overwhelming responsibility". He also announced emergency aid for Gaza worth more than US $70m (£50m).

Hamas bears the responsibility!

Did you hear that you IRI loving Jew hating bigots?

The fact that he called Israel's actions abominable or that $70 million has been pledged to aid the civilians is a mere afterthought to you people!

You are just obsessed with the fact that someone had the gall to say that "Hamas bears responsibilty."

Hamas an elected representative? Since when has there been an honest, transparent and uncorrupted and unrigged election anywhere in that part of the world? Hamas has never offered to negotiate with Israel. They won't even negotiate with Fatah, and you bigots think they'll negotiate with Israel? On top of that, Hamas isn't even Palestinian!

Fashionable to attack Hamas? I hope they make it a required course of study in school! Maybe that way you bigots will learn the difference between a gang of murdering bastards like Hamas and the innocent civilian Palestinian population they've used as their cover.

I am fully with you. The so called psudo intellectual nationalist monarchists, along with their freemason zionist, small time thief; The Shah, were thrown out of Iran like garbage by the vast majority of the Iranian population for doing exactly what their ilks in saudi arabia, egypt, jordan and etc.. do really well; sell their countries and people to the highest bidder are now doing the only thing they know best, follow their zionist and imperialist masters and regurgitating their disgusting imperial plans.

As Jalale Al Ahmad aptly pointed out these are westoxicated fools and individuals with no redeeming sense of worth who are unable to distinguish between right and wrong.

The fact that they dont understand and are completely clueless about settler colonial history in places like: The Americas, New Zealand, Australia, Southern Africa and Palestine seems to give them carte blunch to say idiotic things like "If you think revenge is the answer" .......

Mehrnaz, They just dont get it. The same way their zionist masters dont get it.

The Palestinians are amongst the rare natives that despite all odds stacked against them have retained their dignity, self worth, identity and rightfully so have chosen the path of resistance. That path is their choice, whatever shape or form it takes. Its incumbent upon all of us to support that plight of the oppressed and the weak against the murderous zionists and imperialists.

Time For some of you to come to terms with Reality !

Maybe you should start also realizing that this is not a one dimensional world ! Unlike You Obama knows the reality of the HAMAS Ideology and those countries like Iran supporting it.


If You think REVENGE is the answer to what happened in GAZA then you are on the wrong Path !



They asked to fox for a witness he offered his tail!

Thank you Irandokht! Is it surprising that the EU would condemn Hamas? This is the same EU that supported this inhumane blockade on 1.5 million, allowed them to starve and die of sickness and then watched them being bombed by Israeli Nazis. The depth of cynicism never fails to astonish and sicken me. Hamas, an elected representative of an oppressed and imprisoned population, had offered to negotiate with Israel, it had also expressed readiness for a two state solution and the recognition of Israel, for a longlasting peace, if Israel withdrew from the occupied territories. It has become fashionable amongst idiots to attack Hamas. What do you expect people under a brutal occupation do? Hand you roses? What this highlights is the true meaning of democracy, human rights, decency and human dignity in the West, when it comes to their colonial designs. On the bright side, both Israel and those states and politicians that support it are being seen for their true colours.

i suppose this is going to be considered media biased as well.  not all the OTHER media denouncing israel for any and all crimes... but this one.

ok kids.  time to stop playing and get to work.  rebuilding, not tearing down.  making a serious humanitarian effort to help palestine by pledging funds, not by a foolish boycott which helps nothing and no one.  palestine, and israel, don't need your is cheap, but real effective efforts to help.

anybody interested?
