This is what you get

When you elect terrorists to run your ‘country.’
The question is no longer whose fault this is. The answer is very obviously Hamas.
Dr. Awni al-Jaru, 37, a surgeon at the hospital, rushed in from his home in the Toufah neighborhood in Gaza City dressed in his scrubs. But he came not to work. His head was bleeding, and his daughter’s jaw was broken.
He said Hamas militants next to his apartment building had fired mortar and rocket rounds. Israel fired back with enormous force, and his apartment was hit. His wife, Albina, originally from Ukraine, and his 1-year-old son were killed.
The story is about ordinary people being caught between the idiot terrorists and the crushing force of the Israeli army. It sucks, but what can you do?
Within minutes, another car pulled up with four more patients.
One was a 21-year-old man with shrapnel in his left leg who demanded quick treatment. He turned out to be a militant with Islamic Jihad. He was smiling a big smile.
“Hurry, I must get back so I can keep fighting,” he told the doctors and anyone else who would listen.
He was told that there were more serious cases than his and that he needed to wait his turn. But he insisted. “We are fighting the Israelis,” he said. “When we fire we run, but they hit back so fast. We run into the houses to get away.” He continued smiling.
“Why are you so happy?” someone asked. “Look around you. Don’t you see the misery that you are helping to cause?”
“But I am from the people, too,” he said, his smile incandescent. “They lost their loved ones as martyrs. They should be happy. I want to be a martyr, too.”
The doctor should have killed him on the spot. It would have saved lives.
Reading this, it helps me believe Israel when they say Hamas fires at them from schools, hospitals, the UN buildings and then runs away.
I don’t understand all the bullshit surrounding this. But the solution seems very, very simple: when Hamas stops firing rockets at Israel, Israel will leave them alone.
