President Dilma Rousseff decided to call back the Brazilian ambassador to Israel in protest of the harsh Israeli reaction against the terrorism from Gaza. The Gaza leadership, which believes it can destroy Israel by terror and is willing to sacrifice innocent women and children by hiding weapons in hospitals, schools, residential buildings and ambulances, are totally responsible for their misery.
The sympathy and support of countries such as Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia encourage Gazan leaders to continue the war of terror.
Rousseff , an ex-militant who became the president of Brazil through peaceful and democratic means, should use her experience and personal example to influence the Hamas leaders and other groups to renounce violence.
Sixty years of violence did not bring any prosperity to the Palestinian people.
It’s time for them to choose dialogue and concentrate on bringing a good standard of living to their people.
