The oblique comments about Palestinians in Islamedia FB Page, and also some articles that actually discredit Hamas, saying the children used as shields by Hamas in order to get the sympathy of the world, makes me “angry” and tried to answer the charges which is not the fundamental.


Before the speech read history! Who Palestinian, Israeli Who we should know. Who is under Egyptian rule before Mursi, Why America fully supports Israeli aggression and the UK who also have us know. The following is a long history. Read!!


Lately it occurs deep concern on the land of Palestine. Thousands of people were killed in the Israeli attack on Gaza that began on December 27, 2008. The world is turbulent. Some countries vehemently oppose Israel even with sever diplomatic relations. Protest against the Israeli attack took place everywhere, including in Indonesia. However, the war is still likely to erupt next few years.


Palestine does have a complicated history. Israel, which is the Jewish nation, the country established on Palestinian land. This leads to the situation evolved to its present state.
