HPW: Gaza Rocket Kills Farm Worker in Israel

As Matt printed before, the Huffington Post covered a story about the latest victim of a rocket attack in Israel, a Thai worker.

Most of the reactions so far on the 289 comment fully moderated thread were not anti-Semitic, but there were some that are definitely worth looking at. They include conspiracy theories that Israel was the one who killed him, among others. Most of the others were simply blaming Israel for it or saying that Hamas didn't mean to do it and other lame attempts at justifying terror. Click the link below to check it out.

Two words....Mossad and distraction.
After recent event things were looking too good for the Palestinians to do something this stupid.

One death on the Israeli side since the Gaza Massacre and 88 Palestinian deaths in the lsat year.

"Some 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the three-week ground and air offensive, including hundreds of civilians. Thirteen Israelis also were killed".
In and of itself, this proves the balance of power.
Like a thorn that has been creating infection for 60 years, Israel will continue to create death, infection and destruction until it is removed. Unless Israel kills ALL Palestinians', they will NEVER have peace. They are occupiers and usurpers of an entire nation.

Time will tell, you have only been there 61 years. There are 1 billion Muslims and you have managed to alienate most of them. Not to mention the fact that most of the civilized world denounces Israel's apartheid policy.

Uh huh. Right. Unguided skyrockets. Isn't it far more likely that the IDF killed this guy and left "missile debris" nearby? Observe the four supposed casualties that Israel used an excuse for their "Operation Cast Lead" -- all four were very highly suspect, likely fabricated.

Israel instigates the attacks and when they happen they are the happiest people because it gives them a chance to kill thousands of Palestinians using American made weapons.

Samlas
No one can come close to the talent of the Israelis when it comes to conspiracies and deception.

Interestingly, it comes on the heels of Israel's insult of the United States of America. USS LIBERTY!!!

I wonder how many Palestinian civillians will be killed in response...

The US is still blockading Gaza and starving the Palestinians to death.

You know what type of comment I find really richhhhh???
"Hamas wants to target civilians"
Do you really, really believe that Hamas has scored a moral VICTORY with the death of a migrant worker??? Cam on!
Hamas, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, or a someone who is just fed up with misery lobbed a primitive rocket over the border unsure of where it would land, but he somehow managed to "target a civilian". Maybe someone is angry that the Dome of the Rock is under siege by Israeli defense forces, who knows?
The ANC bombed many government sites where civilians were working, they targeted those sites, and today, they're the ruling party in South Africa. People get fed up waiting for the world to act against injustice! Those who subject other human beings to decades of injustice are ALWAYS, ALWAYS to blame for the consequences!
Case closed.

The US should require Israel to sign the nuclear proliferation treaty (NPT) or just slap sanctions on them for illegal nuclear weapons.

There are no "Israelis", the people living in Israel are European Jews. Your lack of historical knowledge shows in your posts. "Israel" was a word made up by the Brits and Americans after they kicked the Palestinians. Maybe you should read something like Wikipedia. [Ooh, good argument!]
It works both ways.

skialethia
Hamas, hamas hamas, is to blame for all the evils of the world. What a perfect excuse Israel has in Hamas! Israel can defend the indefensible and keep blaming it on Hamas. [How ironic] Now I know why at one time Hamas was being tacitly supported by Israel. They are an endless well that Israel can tap into for propaganda!
Here's something that should make you cringe in shame:

You misinterpret what this incident represents. It comes in driect response to extreme Israeli provocations. Both the land theft in East Jerusalem and the ongoing blockade of Gaza are what is driving this, not Palestinian intransigence. It is Palestine that is fighting for its' existence not Israel. If Israel doesn't want a small number of Palestinian radicals launching hopeless attacks then Israel should start behaving like a civilized country instead of the neighborhood thugs and bullies.

" Israel is ALWAYS fighting for it's existence."
The state of Israel will always live in fear since it was built on injustice. With all the advanced weapons it has, the unlimited financial and military support of the US, and its nuclear weapons, Israel is always feeling vulnerable or at least pretending to be to continue its expansionist agenda.

skialethia
You have it all wrong, dearie, the Palestinians will NEVER rest "until they are FREE of oppression"! And Israel is NOT fighting for its existence because one migrant worker is unfortunately dead; Palestinians are fighting for THEIR existence, because many more of them have been killed and injured since the start of the year, because they are being subjected to a blockade that is killing them in many ways, because children are being exposed to contaminated water from a bombed out sewer system Israel prevents them from fixing, because those with serious illnesses, some being caused by depleted uranium are not allowed to get necessary medical care outside Gaza, and because children are getting less nutrients in their diet!
But never a scintilla of empathy coming from you! Day in and day out you berate and vilify these people who are barely getting by on a punishing siege that is really meant to break their spirit, diminish their growth and extinguish their lives!

GCitizen
and you are a ......... hasbaraist

These people are not "targeting" anyone. These weapons have no targeting or guidance systems. Unlike the Israelis who used laser guided weapons to target civilians and civilian infrastructure.

skialethia
Targeting civilians??? Really? You really believe Hamas wants to target a poor migrant worker???
Think logic, not spin and bias.

Israel has been warned for years that their treatment of the Palestinians was formenting an ever more violent extremist attitude, with more violent groups moving into Gaza. So yes, Israel could have stopped this a long time ago. Unfortunately for innocent civilians on all side, Israel hnot to.

GCitizen
The creation of Israel was an act of terror and injustice since it was created on stolen land and it has been expanding since its creation on more Palestinian land. See the map on the link below for a graphical truth.

A tragic event and the perpetrators were wrong. But it changes nothing in the overall equation. Over sixty years of criminal ethnic cleansing and murder by Israel must stop. Israel bears full responsibility for opening the door to radicalism amongst a minority of Palestinians.
