Israel FINALLY Responds to Hamas Rocket Onslaught; UN is Outraged

After 110 rockets were launched on Israeli civilians over the past three days by Hamas and assorted other Palestinian terrorists the IDF responded by, as Al-Reuters puts it, "flattening the Hamas ministry in the Gaza Strip." And it's about time.

But, of course, the usual suspects are outraged, including UN undersecretary-general for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes, who made this surreal comment in response:
The Israeli reaction is not justified by those rocket attacks, even though it's caused by those rocket attacks.
Typical UN "logic." Look for further condemnation from the "international community" in the days to come. Not against Hamas, mind you, but against Israel for having the audacity to defend itself.

That "peace process" is working out real well, eh, Condi and GW?

John Holmes (now there is a name from the past) has mastered double speak! The Israelis were right to hit Hamas !!
