German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said on Thursday Israel has a “legitimate right to defend itself”.
Westerwelle underlined that Israel has a right to protect its own citizens against rocket attacks from the Gaza strip.
Speaking at a conference in Paris, Westerwelle added: “Now it is necessary that everyone contributes to deescalating the situation.”
He called upon all parties involved to act “wisely” in an effort to deescalate the crisis.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague accused Hamas on Thursday of bearing responsibility for the latest escalation in the Gaza Strip. He demanded that Hamas stop firing on Israel but did not issue a similar call for an end to Israel’s operation.
“Hamas bears principal responsibility for the current crisis,” Hague said in a statement published by the Foreign Office in London. “I utterly condemn rocket attacks from Gaza into southern Israel by Hamas and other armed groups.”

When hundreds of rockets is fired into Southern Israel, it is to late for European leaders to cry crocodile tears.
The EU has for years, through the United Nations, supplied the Hamas with money and equipment, making it possible for the Islamic terrorists to stay in power in Gaza.
Now, lets see if the EU will support Israel’s right to give the Hamas a final blow, and remove this cancer.
The problem is obvious. If the Hamas is removed, who shall take over the control over this area? Before the Fascists in the Muslim Brotherhood was elected to power in Cairo, Egypt was the best candidate. Now, such a hand over will just be handling the Jewish people over from the fire to the frying pan.
The EU, the USA and the UN has created this evil, that now threaten the very existence of the Jewish state. If the West had not financed Islamic terrorism, this evil would never have flourished. The PLO would have been located in Tunisia up to this day, and probably faded away into the scrapyard of history ruled by its own incompetence.
Shame on all who have supported this built up of evil against the Jewish people.
