Israel not helping its cause

Israel not helping its cause

To the Editor:

Why are Israeli warlords bombing children’s hospitals and killing hundreds of children and babies? 

They claim that Hamas has tunnels under the hospital, and their goal is to wipe out Hamas. If Hamas actually built tunnels under a hospital, I assume they figured that no one would be degraded enough to bomb a hospital. Obviously they were wrong, and I guess they’ll have to rethink their assumptions when they make further plans to free their people from an Israeli dictator (Netanyahu).

If Israeli warlords plan is to eliminate Hamas, and they think Hamas is hiding in tunnels, then they need to be in the tunnels killing Hamas people and not bombing hospitals and killing Palestinian children and babies.

I am in favor of the plan President Biden released (in May) to end anti-Semitism. The Israeli warlord tactics do not help to end anti-Semitism. Nearly every country on this planet wants Israel to cease their bombing. But Israel is quickly losing face in the world today.
