For years the world incl Australia has been pouring money into Gaza to alleviate their grinding poverty, all the while most of this money has gone towards buying weapons and into the leaders' pockets.

While their people languish in poverty and are treated as human shields, the leaders of Hamas live billionaire lifestyles.

The terror groupís three top leaders alone are worth a staggering $11 billion between them and enjoy a life of luxury in the sanctuary of the emirate of Qatar.

The emirate has long welcomed the leaders of the terror group and installed them in its luxury hotels and villas at the same time as hosting a vast American military presence.

The terrorist group, which is responsible for the antisemitic Oct. 7 massacre of more than 1,400 innocent civilians in southern Israel, continues to hold 200 hostages in Gaza.

Hamas runs an office in Qatarís capital, Doha, and leaders Ismail Haniyeh, Moussa Abu Marzuk and Khaled Mashal live a luxurious lifestyle.

They have been seen at its diplomatic club, photographed on private jets and travelled widely. The leadership would have been there for the 2022 soccer World Cup.

In contrast, most of the population of more than two million in the Gaza Strip, which Hamas has ruled since 2007, live in abject poverty.

I was surprised to learn that Qatar is a patron of the Hamas terrorists. Then I remembered their skulduggery around the Fifa World Cup. I have to withdraw my sympathy for them being blocked from having extra flights into Australia.

Perhaps Qatar airline should be refused entry into Australia altogether.

Ah.. so it's ok to discriminate against an airline, and punish our own citizens by denying them an opportunity for cheaper airfares
But you still want to pull this 'anti-semitic' / 'Jew hater' crap and imply criticising Israel is wrong, while defending the mass murder of women and kids.
- I'm just checking to make sure I have you three in the right context here.

Some here had previous opinions of Putin wanting him tried by the ICC for removing kids from a warzone.

I guess now it's my turn, right?
I support Australia backing an ICC investigations on Israel / Palestine.

You boys can go ahead and voice your opposition so we can all see where your at,
That is - tacit support for the continuation of mass murder of women and kids...
Or likely you'll pretend this comment isn't here and avoid the issue altogether,
- which will speak to the same support for the continuation of mass murder of women and kids.

Me personally, I'd probably advise choosing the 'ignore this comment' option.
I think you three might've just found yourselves in quicksand.
The more you try to struggle and get out, (if you try to argue the point) the deeper in you'll get yourselves.

"Ahem" - oops, sorry, that comment above must've just accidentally slipped out.

Corruption, financial criminality, nepotism, cronyism etc are rife in the Middle East, no state there is exempt from these diabolical nasties. Alongside these evils exists masses of poverty stricken people. None of these evils can justify the genocide of thousands of innocents. Israel, claiming it is targeting Hamas, whist at the same time indiscriminately killing thousands of non combatant Palestinian men, women and children, is a war crime, and can not be balanced by the evils perpetrated against innocent Israelis Oct 7th.

They managed to dispose of Osama Bin Ladin. There is no reason why they couldn't do the same to the Hamas thugs.

Would you fly Qatar? Would you want a Muslim at the controls? Do you remember the Malaysia Airlines kamikaze pilot (Muslim) who killed a plane load of people, including Australians?

Islam is going to be a big problem AGAIN for the West - not just Israel. And the Australian political class doesnít have what it takes to prosecute Jihadi Muslims preaching hate right here in Australia. The law is there, but they won't use it.

Brother Ismail preaching hate right here with a little boy running about while he is doing it.

Australia is no longer a rule of law country. Australia is rooted, and Albanese dances clumsily (as he does with everything) in Tuvulu, wearing an ugly shirt several sizes too big; as well as giving more of our money to the island crooks, and promising them visas, work and citizenship when they become 'climate refugees'.
