Palestinians behaving badly. UN's fault?

Well, they are behaving badly. Attacks under a flag of truce are generally considered to fall under the term "treachery".

Just 90 minutes into the "humanitarian" "ceasefire"  Hamas emerged from a terror tunnel, detonated a suicide bomb and took one Jew hostage back through the tunnel.

That's pretty much a textbook definition of treachery. From the Intertubes we get:

synonyms:betrayal, disloyalty, faithlessness, unfaithfulness, infidelity, breach of trust, duplicity, dirty tricks, deceit, deception, chicanery, stab in the back, backstabbing, double-dealing, untrustworthiness;

From the Jerusalem Post we get more detail:

A Hamas attack on IDF soldiers in southern Gaza, which occurred an hour and a half after the start of a humanitarian truce, ended with the suspected kidnapping of a soldier, the IDF said Friday.

Second Lt. Hadar Goldin, a 23-year-old Givati officer from Kfar Saba, was named as the IDF soldier presumed to be abducted by Hamas. His family has been notified.

Two other soldiers were killed during the incident. Their families have been notified.

Terrorists emerged from a tunnel shaft, and a suicide bomber detonated himself in the vicinity of soldiers. Heavy exchanges of fire ensued, before one of the IDF soldiers was kidnapped, a senior army source said.

The IDF said the incident occurred at 9:30 a.m., but a spokesman for Hamas's military wing claimed the terrorists came out of the tunnel and took part in the ensuing gunfight at 7:00 a.m.

So, all you brave Leftists out there, "transgressing against bourgeois values" with your Hamas flags and your Arab head scarves, just be aware of what exactly it is you are supporting. You are the KKK skinhead with the swastika tattoo on your forehead, showing up at the Holocaust Memorial.

Yeah, its tacky.

As to the UN, we have this bit from the Gateway Pundit's link above:

Some of the terror tunnels are almost 2 miles long and cost upwards of $1 Million each to construct. Some of that construction money comes from American tax payers. Some of those tunnels were built with entrances INSIDE United Nations buildings, ostensibly with tacit UN approval.

We also know that the tunnels run from mosques. Think murder hole dug from your local Baptist church to the nearby shopping mall, that's what we're talking about here.

We also know that not one, not two but THREE stashes of highly explosive rockets have been found in UN-funded schools. You know, where kids go every day to learn how to read. These are not proper rockets made in a nice proper Soviet factory by the way. These are pieces of cobbled-up drain pipe and irrigation tubing tinkered together with home-made explosives and propellants by Mustapha the One Eyed Bomb Maker in his basement. They tend toward unpredictability, shall we say.

We also know that Hamas headquarters is the local hospital where Western reporters are shown all sorts of wounded children.

Here's what the UN said:

Navi Pillay, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, told reporters in Geneva that Hamas was hiding rockets in schools and hospitals and launching them from areas where civilians live. Israel, she said, has attacked civilian structures including homes, hospitals, schools and U.N. facilities.

"None of this appears to me to be accidental," said Pillay, referring to Israel. "They appear to be defying — a deliberate defiance of — obligations that international law imposes on Israel."

She also criticized the United States for providing significant financial assistance for Israel's Iron Dome missile-defense system while offering "no such protection" to shield Gazans against shelling and airstrikes.

This by the way is buried 'waaaaay down at the bottom of the Washington Post article. The UN spokesbabe admits Hamas is hiding munitions in and firing them from schools, hospitals and UN buildings, then condemns Israel for attacking... schools, hospitals and UN buildings.

I conclude that if it wasn't for the UN, there wouldn't even be any Middle East unrest. Much less war.

I'll state the obvious; tunnels run both ways. Some colored smoke and a few high static pressure mining ventilation fans would reveal where the other ends are.

I'm sure they thought of that. Them Jooooos! is crafty, y'know.

I think the fact that we are even seeing any discussion of IDF tactics when Hamas has fucking giant TUNNELS running into Israel indicates just how far the Lefty propaganda war has gone.

Yesterday a four year old got killed by a Hamas rocket in Israel. Where's the rioting?
