The world continues to express its outrage at the shooting down of a commercial airliner, likely by Ukrainian separatists. While it is highly likely that the those firing mistook said aircraft for an enemy plane the idea that civilian aircraft carrying civilian passengers might be targeted, even accidentally, is an unacceptable outrage.
Strangely enough I don’t seem to recall that same outrage a week ago when this story came out.
Sirens sounded in the Tel Aviv area on Friday morning at approximately 10:45 a.m., in what Hamas claims to be its first attack targeting the Ben Gurion International Airport.
The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system shot down three rockets over the Tel Aviv area, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Office.
Well I understand why there is no outrage, it’s just a random rocket. It’s not like Hamas was targeting the airport itself or issuing demands and warning to international flyers. That would be a different story.
Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, boasting that this is the first time they have specifically targeted Ben Gurion Airport, according to Yedioth Aharonoth. The terror group claimed to have shot four domestically produced M-75 rockets at the airport.
“We are sending a message to all foreign airlines operating flights into the Zionist entity, asking them to stop flying into the entity because of the dangers surrounding all the airports due to the ongoing war,” it said in a statement, according to AFP.
The reality is Hamas understands that even if they managed to hit a commercial airplane the international media would have backed Hamas’ claim that the responsibility belongs to Israel and European governments terrified of their increasingly Islamic populations and the increasingly Jew hating left in America would aided by the media unite as a result of such an attack to call on Israel to make concessions to prevent this from happening in the future.
Keep that in mind when you see pols, particular on the left beating their breasts over the next week concerning the downing of the Malaysian flight.
