Hamas Attacks Israel, World Yawns

Israel's UN Envoy Files Complaint over Gaza Rockets - Yoel Goldman

In response to two rockets fired from Gaza at the Israeli city of Ashkelon on Monday, Israel's UN envoy Ron Prosor lodged a complaint with the Security Council and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. "Instead of committing itself to improving the lives of Palestinians, Hamas proves time and time again that its only commitment is to terrorism," said Prosor. "While Israel works to advance peace, Hamas responds by firing on Israeli citizens." "While Israel brings trucks with construction materials into Gaza, Hamas uses them to build terror tunnels."

Very sad but all seeming very true. The work needs to start exerting much more pressure when it is clear the Palestinians resources are not going to the people or peace efforts. Aid should be contingent on set goals of public policy, infrastructure and peace efforts.

Indeed...it would be exceedingly productive if monetary aide to the Palestinian Authority had some strings attached!

And don't forget the timing...it's no coincidence that Gaza heats up while Kerry forces the Palestinian Authority to the table. Gaza is Hamas stating clearly that the PA cannot make peace.
