My thanks to the iViews people for this article. This is much needed information since the so called "Godly people" (hypocrites) of the Western world automatically blaming Hamas for starting trouble.
Israel and its followers in the Western world always create confusion in the news media helping Israel play victim, as usual. Israel never does anything wrong; Israel only retaliates; Israel is only trying to protect its people! Bunch of liars!
May Allah punish those who commit injustice and those who help others commit injustice!
May Allah protect my brothers and sisters throughout the world!
May Allah give martyrdom to those who perished in Gaza!

Thank you for clarifying a few things for us her ein the USA. Our tainted news media cannot be trusted to tell us the real truth!

This article put short history in prespective. i wish you have a time line for the occupation since it begain,the veto of the usa for every UN decision and condamination of israel actions.
