Letter: Hamas Deserves Much More Criticism Than It Is Getting – Opinion – The Buffalo News

In fact, hundreds of rockets emanated from Gaza soon after Israels 2005 withdrawal, and by now attacks number in the thousands, occurring nearly every month. Yet, Israel began blockading Gaza only in 2007, the year that Hamas violently wrested control of this area from the Palestinian Authority. From its founding in 1988 Hamas has been at war with Israel in every sense of the word, and its founding charter clearly says so. It has attacked, kidnapped and killed Israeli civilians and soldiers; it has rocketed Israel continuously since taking Gaza, including after the 2012 cease-fire; and it has invaded Israeli territory with its tunnels. Blockading an enemy is a normal, accepted tactic of war, particularly when done in defense against that enemys aggression. Israels (and Egypts) action in this regard is fully in accord with international law.
