Israel's Decision to Retaliate Returns Tension to Middle East
By Cihan News Agency
Published: Friday 20, 2005

The decision by the Israel army to retaliate immediately against any Palestinian attack has weakened the mutual cease-fire.

What??? A Palestinian attack doesn't weaken or violate a cease-fire, but a Jewish defense or response does? Translation: 'A Jew defending himself violates the peace, an Arab attacking is part of the peace.'

Top-level Israeli military officers met as Palestinian armed group HAMAS attacked Jewish settlements, and decided on immediate reprisals for these kinds of attacks.

Translation: Israeli military officials meeting is worrisome, terrorists attempting to kill Jewish civilians, including women and children, isn't.

Anti-Sharon slogans were chanted at the funeral of a Hamas member, who was killed by Israeli troops as Palestinian groups committed two counter attacks on Israeli settlements by using Qassam missiles.

Translation: A terrorist attempting to murder Jews was killed, this is very upsetting. Not necessarily that he was killed, but that he was unsuccessful.

One person was injured in the attack.

Translation: Only 1 injured Jew, this is seriously upsetting!
