Humanitarian Aid, "Palestinian" Style

Via Hot Air comes this instructive little tidbit.

Hamas on Monday raided some 100 aid trucks that Israel had allowed into Gaza, stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders.

The IDF said that since terminal activity is coordinated with UNRWA and the Red Cross, Israel could do nothing to prevent such raids, Israel Radio reported.

Between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the army had ceased all military activity in Gaza and once again established a "humanitarian corridor" to help facilitate the transfer of the supplies.

The Kerem Shalom and Karni crossings had been opened to allow in the aid trucks.

So, to be clear, the IDF periodically halts its defensive war against terrorists bent on its destruction in order to allow the delivery of humanitarian aid to the innocents who are routinely placed in harm's way by those terrorists. Then the aforementioned terrorists hijack those aid supplies, sell them off to those who can afford to pay (thus letting those who can't pony up simply continue to face starvation), in order to raise funds to continue their war of extermination against the providers of that aid.

Clearly, this must be the fault of the Israelis, yes? It must be part of some twisted Zionist conspiracy to subvert Islam and re-occupy the territory which it unilaterally ceded to the "Palestinians" (who then went on to raze every bit of useful infrastructure which the Israelis had left behind, and replace it with...slums and rocket launchers). Here's your proof:

Meanwhile, Israel is considering establishing a field hospital in the Gaza Strip to treat Palestinian civilians wounded in fighting between the IDF and Hamas.

The plan would be to establish the field hospital outside the Gaza Strip, but the IDF is also considering the possibility of erecting the hospital inside the Palestinian territory so it will be more accessible to the Palestinian population. It would be run by the IDF Medical Corps.

Clearly, this "hospital" is merely a thinly-veiled move by Israel to steal territory it previously gave away, and restore to health those innocents who were accidentally hurt in its campaign, so that they will...what? Live on to become subjects of the Zionist Entity?

It is a rare thing in life for a situation to be this clear. Those who persist in distorting this conflict to support their reflexive antipathy toward Israel continue to astound me with the cognitive gymnastics in which they must engage to obscure the blindingly obvious.

EDITED for the sake of pronouns feeling lonely without antecedents.

It really is! This now makes two posts of your in a row that I've read without slapping my forehead :).

Fear not, faithful droog; the year is young yet!

Still, it never was my intent to browbeat you...

Took me a bit to get to this, but I just watched it. The narrator does ramble a bit, but he is dead-on. I am continually astonished at the number of people who harbor the mistaken belief that there has ever been a country known as "Palestine." Never was. Knowing how much we both like Larry Miller, I thought you would appreciate this editorial on that very subject. "Adjacent Jew-haters," indeed.

The pollution at the heart of the "Palestinian" cause is of a depressingly multi-generational nature, and I weep at the sight of every child in hideous green and black regalia, brandishing the weapons which will doom him and his neighbors to more of the same.

You can sprinkle the magic pixie dust of "diplomacy" across the region like pure mountain snow. These people will always find a way to piss in it.
