After a relatively quiet day in southern Israel, at least four Qassam rockets were fired Wednesday evening from the Gaza Strip. Two rockets landed shortly after 8 pm in the Sderot area, one of them inside the city. One woman suffered from shock. Another two rockets landed south of Asheklon, one of them killing a mare in Kibbutz Nir Am. The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing, claimed responsibility for firing a one of the rockets Wednesday evening.Now some of you might be saying "given these attacks, plus Hamas's promises to keep firing rockets - this would be an especially stupid time for certain European countries to begin giving Hamas direct aid". Very obviously, it seems to be the perfect time:
Norway is set to make the first transfer of direct aid to the Palestinians' new government, the foreign minister said Monday - more than two months after the Nordic country broke with most Western nations by recognizing the Hamas-led coalition. "Palestinian Finance Minister Fayyad has now structured a financial account by which we can channel our support," Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said. Norway soon will transfer $10 million to that account, Stoere said.Because really - beside ubiquitous genocidal promises, systematic child brainwashing, and actual war crimes - what has Hamas done to make you think that they shouldn't get money? How biased and one-sided of you.
