Israelis Hits UN Schools Used By Hamas

An all too typical headline from the Hamas fans at the Associated Press:

Israeli strike near UN school kills at least 30

January 06, 2009

GAZA CITY, Gaza (AP) — Israeli fire has struck outside a U.N. school in northern Gaza today where hundreds of Palestinians had been seeking refuge.

The U.N. and Palestinian medics say at least 30 people were killed, many of them children.

An Israeli official says militants hiding in the school had been shooting at Israeli troops, drawing the bombardment. The official also says Palestinian munitions were being stored in the building and there were multiple explosions.

Palestinian militants frequently fire from residential areas, but a medic who treated the wounded at the school says he did not see any gunmen among the casualties.

The incident was the second time today a U.N. school came under attack. Three people were killed in the first strike…

Unfortunately for Hamas and their cheerleaders in the media, the Israelis have posted a video showing a UN school being as a launching pad for rockets into Israel back in 2007:

Not surprisingly, the IDF has had a hard time with Google scrubbing their videos from YouTube.

So watch it while you can.

    Israel should wipe out each launch site, regardless of where it’s at.

    Israel should wipe out the UN.

    BTW, Where did those kids come from? I thought the IDF had killed all the Pali kids.

    IDF hits UN schools used by Hamas……
    Why in the HELL is the United Nations letting Hamas USE their schools as a missile launch pad? Need we look any further as to what is wrong with the toothless UN? The UN did a better job at breaking treaties (i.e. Oil for Food) than making peace anywhere in the world. What a frickin’ joke!!
    Thats’ it….”US out of the UN!!” Think of the Billions saved here alone.

    For future reference:

    If you google “Mortar Bombs Shot from UN School in Gaza 29 Oct. 2007” you will find the video on youtube.

    You can then copy the Youtube URL into the following webpage: http://www.keepvid.com

    The webpage converts your video into an MP4, which you can save on your own computer.

    Try scrubbing that Google!

    The only ones joyful over more dead Palestinian women and children are the leaders of Hamas and Iran. Amazing that the citizens of Gaza and the West Bank haven’t realized that after all these years.

    Its not clear to me why the Israelis should care more for the safety and wellbeing of the Palestinians than their Hamas leaders did when they started this thing…its almost as if civilian casulaties are a Hamas war aim -naaahh! No one could be that ruthless and cynical, right?

    Also, about these Palestinians. Aren’t they the same ones who get millions of dollars in aid money from us every year and who sang and danced in the streets on Sept 11, 2001? I thought so.

    The sad part of the whole thing is that Hamas will use such happenings as recruiting tools to draw more into their terrorist activities.

    However, the Palestinians knew full well what Hamas stood for, and accepted this bargain with the devil. There comes a time after one makes such a bargain, the devil will collect his dues.

    There have been several times the UN has stood by and let its “neutrality” be compromised, so Hamas using a UN school should not come as much of a surprise.

      …..”The sad part of the whole thing is that Hamas will use such happenings as recruiting tools”….

      Eventually, if the Israelis keep up the pressure, the pool of likely recruits will dry up.

      Or………..Israel could opt for an alternative solution and press the Palestinians to elect someone with views contrary to Hamas’ beliefs. Sort of like Obama’s election in the US. The recruit pool would dry up in a matter of months. (sarc off)

    And the UN keeps on supporting its terrorist allies:

    U.N. ‘sure’ no militants at school hit by Israeli troops

    GAZA CITY (CNN) — U.N. officials are “99.9 percent certain” there were no Palestinian militants in or on the grounds of a school that was shelled by Israeli forces, killing more than 40 people, a spokesman said Wednesday.

    …..But John Ging, UNRWA’s director, has called for an independent investigation into the strike, which came a day after an airstrike killed three men at a second U.N. school in Gaza City.


    Why the need for an independent investigation? They are 99.9% sure they are right, Israel is a bunch of baby killers. Says so in every MSM article about the conflict, must be true. They wouldn’t publish a biased story without checking the facts. Since Israel isn’t letting in any outside “independent” news; the only people in Gaza are the Pals and Israeli’s. Wonder where they are getting their information from? The only thing more pure than the UN and the terrorist is Dove soap.

    The Beeb are now trying to discredit the UN School Hamas story, but Melanie Philips is on the case:
