Palestinians trying to destroy a fence along the Gaza border

"The recent, ongoing flood of international criticism and censure against Israel, and specifically the time-worn mantra accusing Israel of a 'disproportionate and indiscriminate' response to the Hamas–organized 'Peaceful March of Return,' calls for comment as to the bona fides of those who so easily and glibly make such accusations.

Perhaps the most obvious, blatant, and fatuous example of this new spate of Israel-bashing is the rehashing of the accusation that Israel acted in a 'disproportionate and indiscriminate' manner. This is repeated by European leaders whenever Israel is obliged to defend itself and its territory.
The 'peaceful' march of return and protests were presented by the Hamas propaganda machine and rapidly digested by the international community. The goal of the ostensibly innocent Palestinian civilians, according to Hamas, was to 'break out' of the Gaza Strip area, liberate Jerusalem, and protest the limitations imposed as part of Israel's maritime closure on the importation of certain dual-use materials into the Gaza Strip.

But this was far from the peaceful 'picnic' publicized and plied by Hamas and the Palestinian leadership to the leaders of the international community and in the international media.

It involved attempts by Hamas operatives, hiding among those ostensibly innocent civilians most of whom were recruited, encouraged, or forced by Hamas to charge the fence separating sovereign Israeli territory from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. Their declared aim was to destroy and break through the fence, enter near-by Israeli villages, kill and kidnap Israelis, and ultimately 'liberate Jerusalem.'..."


A kite with a swastika drawn on it, used by Palestinians in Gaza to start fires in Israel

"An Israeli NGO is building a case against Hamas to submit to the International Criminal Court over the flaming kites the terror group has launched against Israeli border farmers in the last month.

According to Israeli media, the kites are responsible for some 260 fires in Israel's fields in the past month, destroying thousands of acres of crops and causing millions of dollars in damage.
'Israel will not remain silent. The current security situation, in which fields and forests in Israel are burned every day by activists in a terrorist organization, is inconceivable,' Shurat HaDin's president, attorney Nitzana Darshan-Leitner, said.

'It cannot be that senior Hamas officials will accuse Israel of war crimes while using a civilian population - especially children - as human shields for their terrorist activities, which are repeatedly targeted at Israeli citizens. Therefore, we call on the International Criminal Court in The Hague to exact justice upon them,' she said..."

"A large scale fire broke out in the lands near Kibbutz Nir Am on Friday evening, TPS reports.

The Kibbutz is covered by heavy smoke, the cause of the fire is suspected to be a burning Palestinian kite flown in from Gaza.

Farmers with fields near the Gaza border, which are exposed to the Gazan Kite terrorism, will be able to receive up to 2 million NIS to harvest ahead of July, announced the Ministry of Agriculture in May 22'd.

Gazans have been using burning kites to ignite Israeli fields and property, causing damage to crops, in what Israelis view as agriculture terrorism."
