    this is just sheer hypocrisy on there part, the Saudis and Egypt are both Israels buddy!
    all three hate hamas, and want to see them dead.

  2. right…i got a solution for it: force Hamas to allow citizens get out of the way, that would prevent Israel from killing all these civilians..
    good idea right? the only down side is that you will lose the excuse to call israel a war criminal.
    if it wasn’t sad it would be funny
