IBD | Israel Vs. Hamas Is Civilization Vs. Savagery

Celebration within Gaza after the bombing of a bus filled with innocent  Israeli civilians is an object lesson on the so-called Palestine question. Those  who would celebrate such a cowardly act are savages.

No one can imagine Washington’s troops firing shots to celebrate a supporter  of American independence trying to kill a group of Royalist civilians. During  the Cold War, U.S. support for Lech Walesa’s Solidarity would have dried up if  he handed out candy after a Polish nationalist targeted, say, innocent  Muscovites going to work.

We may live in a complex world, but evil is identifiable even when its  practitioners claim their cause is good.

The gunfire across Gaza celebrating an explosion on a bus in central Tel Aviv  on Wednesday is evil. And the Iranian-backed Hamas’ rulers praising the bombing,  which injured 15 passengers, is evil.

"Hamas blesses the attack in Tel Aviv and sees it as a natural response to  the Israeli massacres … in Gaza," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told  Reuters.
