I digress. Back to the story.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Israeli artillery shells struck the U.N. headquarters in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, setting a food warehouse ablaze and drawing a sharp rebuke from the visiting U.N. chief who called it an "outrage." Another Israeli bombardment killed Hamas' head of security.yada, yada, yada. Wonder why the Israeli artillery would land a barrage in the UN Compound?
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Hamas militants opened fire from the U.N. compound. "It is absolutely true that we were attacked from that place, but the consequences are very sad and we apologize for it," he said. The military said it was still investigating.Oh, really? Hamas was using the compound to launch attacks? Well, that makes the compound a legitimate military target, doesn't it? We've covered this before. It sounds to me like the IDF had every right to shell the U.N. But, the shelling continues, at a local hospital.
After nightfall, shells landed near Gaza City's Quds Hospital, where many families had sought refuge, and the building caught fire, forcing staff to evacuate hundreds of people. According to a hospital medic, some patients were pushed down the street on gurneys; a few held white flags.Well, that's what happens when you let Hamas use your hospital basement. It becomes a legitimate military target.
Seriously though. I've saved the best paragraph for last.
The attack triggered a raging fire that engulfed a warehouse and destroyed thousands of pounds of food and other aid intended for Gaza's beleaguered citizens. Workers with fire extinguishers and Palestinian firefighters, some wearing bulletproof jackets, struggled to douse flames and tugged bags of flour from the debris. Fuel supplies and cars in a garage also went up in flames.Yeah, artillery fire is bad about starting fires. My question to the UN would be, what was all that food doing in a warehouse? Y'all selling food to the highest bidder again?
Seriously. The UN has become a terrorist organization and ought to be treated like one.
