Terrorists Using Playground as Cover

By Matthew Clark1353101423000

Hamas terrorists are not only launching hundreds of Rockets at Israeli civilians, they are using Palestinian children as human shields.

The Palestinian terrorists intentionally set up a launch site for their Fajr 5 rockets next to a children’s playground in Gaza.

As you can clearly see from the picture above provided by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the launch site for their terrorist rockets is half a block away from a place of worship, a playground, and numerous other civilian targets.

The IDF is telling the story of what they are facing in their effort to defend the Israeli people in real time through their blog and especially through their Twitter account. Just this morning the IDF tweeted, “Confirmed: A rocket fired from Gaza struck outside Jerusalem, Israel's capital city. #IsraelUnderFire”

In response, even though Hamas terrorists are intentionally using civilians as human shields, the IDF has said that is “has called off airstrikes when civilians were spotted near a target.”

This is the complexity and hypocrisy that Israel faces in attempting to defend its citizens. What is hard for people to imagine who live here in the U.S. is the constant barrage of rocket attacks faced by the Israeli people.

IDF is using social media to paint a poignant picture of how this same kind of terrorist attack would be tolerated around the world. Below is an image that the IDF is sharing on Facebook and Twitter.

Over 600 hundred rockets have been launched into Israel in just the last few days striking as far into Israel as Tel Aviv and now the capital city of Jerusalem.

The same terrorist group, Hamas, that has been firing rockets into Israel is leading the Palestinian Authority’s charge at the United Nations (U.N.) later this month to obtain statehood. Not only does the U.N. not have the authority to create nations, the creation of a terrorist nation on Israel’s boarder would spell certain disaster for the Israeli people. Join our efforts by signing the petition to defend Israel against this terrorist threat.
