Hamas? Kill them or arrest for war crimes
Every Hamas member not killed should be tried for war crimes From ZOA"the idea that 'there are two sides to every story' ignores the vast moral disparity between Israel, that has been stirred into action to defend its people from kidnappers and murderers, and Hamas, that has as its raison d'être the murder of every Jew on earth. In his interview, Congressman Sherman stated that: "Every one of those rockets is a war crime, almost every one. Every rocket that is not aimed at a military target, but is instead aimed at a civilian target or just a city, is a war crime. Of course, it's a war crime committed by Hamas and of course the owners of this TV network help fund Hamas. So I am very proud that Israel ... immediately after the death, the tragic death, of that Arab teenager, used all of its resources to try to investigate and incarcerate those who were responsible. In contrast, it is very hard to find any Arab government, or any Arab authority, that has been willing to arrest, extradite or punish anyone for killing a Jew. Because, all too often, among Israel's enemies, it is open season on those of the Jewish faith. In fact, those who murder the most Israeli civilians are the ones for whom squares are named, whose names are celebrated, whose families are rewarded. This is a bizarre response ... The idea that you would have a TV station funded and owned by those who fund Hamas, and Hamas would use all of its efforts in a clear effort to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible and you would say on this TV station say, 'It isn't a war crime, because it's not successful, the rocket didn't hit a kindergarten, it was aimed at kindergarten, but it didn't hit a kindergarten, so then its not reprehensible' ... [Asked if Israel has overreacted to Hamas killing of the teenagers] I think Israel's response is proportionate. I don't think there's always two sides to every story. Those who are trying to kill as many babies, children and women as possible and who rejoice in their death -- that's not one side, and then the other side, which prosecute those who engage in wrongful death, that's not 'Oh well, there's merit on both sides.' No, you have one side in this conflict who is doing everything it possibly can to reduce and avoid civilian casualties and to prosecute those act against civilians, and then you have the Hamas side ... which Qatar supports, that rejoices in how many babies they can kill, how many children they can kill, they names squares and provide subsidies to those who are able to kill civilians and thy aim their rocket at civilian targets. That's not two equal sides" ('Sherman Blasts Al Jazeera on Al Jazeera,' Youtube, July 11, 2014).
