    He speaks the truth. What he doesn`t mention is that the people who live in the WB knowingly "raise" their children in a war zone that is perpetuated by their "leaders". When one of their children is killed they show the body off to shame Israel. Israel is attempting to negotiate using good sense with fools. BTW Ireland and Scotland should be free as well and those two countries are all about left leaning politics so the lefties should spend their time backing them instead of the goat herders.

    In this conflict, both sides attempt to play their roles in an asymmetric conflict in an optimal manner.

    However, in the end, it is clear who has taken and does _continue_ to take who`s land and resources. Palestinians fight ugly because they are more than cornered (and psychotic). Israel needs to pull back its settlers or it loses all credibility. It pretends to be a cop but acts like a bully.

    Actually, I think they are right to bomb Hamas. But, they should act just as harshly against their settlers.

    Right.. If i condemn Israels actions on the WB i`m automatically evil.. Both sides are drating stupid, Israel should give West bank back and both sides should calm the drat down. They were given their own country and they fully deserved it back then but that does not justify for expansion.

    If Israel didn`t control WB, then i`d support them as they would be defending them selves. Now they are occupiers and we all know how that works..

    Both sides should be taken to Daddys knee and receive a good spanking..

    Back to whom? Ireland wasn`t unified before, so it`s not a case of giving it *back*. The formal division of Ireland was a *result* of existing religious and political division, not the *cause* of it.

    There`s a far, far stronger case for the USA giving back California, Nevada, Utah, Texas and parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming. That actually would be giving it *back*, i.e. to the country that owned it before the USA took it by force.

    @markust: every fact he claims is true. He adds "humour" to avoid being a "lecture" eh?
    Too bad your mind is so closed, you may have learned a thing or two.
    Are you disputing that "leftists" support thePLO more than they support Israel? O`really?

    @rocketbooster: According to the UN (you know, the guys who said Israel has "a right to exist"?) RULES: The existing settlements at the time of the `48 cease-fire have a RIGHT to natural growth & expansion.
    I don`t see you calling for an end to Palestinian settlement expansion... or anyone else! But they TOO are doing just that!

    Israel should give West bank back...

    @CreamK: They TRIED! Oslo Accord? 90+% of ALL PLO demands were met? Including 95% of the WB! The PLO renegged, so now GAZA becomes "Palestine" and the West Bank part of Israel... "de facto" of course.

    BTW Ireland and Scotland should be free as well

    Ireland has never been a country. It`s an island that has at various points in history been home to varying numbers of countries. There are no simple answers to the horrible mess that was caused by a virulent mix of religion and politics in Ireland.

    Scotland is free. It voluntarily unified with England because it had gambled away its own economy on a badly planned and badly implemented pie in the sky scheme to catapult Scotland from a poor, powerless semi-feudal country to an imperial power. It needed English money to avoid bankruptcy. Post-unification, England (already an empire at that point) bailed Scotland out with boatloads of money. They`d already been partially unified for 100 years, anyway, and the rulers had been related since ~1100.

    Do you think that every state in the USA should be "free" by your definition, i.e. secede from the union?

    Israel is NOT calling for the mass deaths of Palestinians, but HAMAS sure is! And their Arabic, Muslim backers sure are too.

    No McGovern they did not contain hugs and kisses, but there is such a thing as using a sledge hammer on a nail, disproportionate force.

    For what it`s worth (nothing) I do not condone either side firing missiles at each other, however you can`t ignore the context in which those missiles were fired-Israel`s reserving and acting on the right to make incursions into the strip of any size and at any time is counter to their claim that gaza is `no longer occupied` merely because they took away their bases there..

    5cats: natural expansion: shipping people there is clearly not natural growth of those settlements.

    about palestinian settlement expansion: uhm, are you in any way familiar with the situation? Just how do you believe the palestinians would expand onto israeli territory?

    I am curious 5Cats where you are getting this idea that "leftists" support the PLO more than they support Israel. I haven`t seen any evidence of this anywhere. I think most Americans are pretty much the same in their support of Israel on this escalation. Hamas`s use of terrorist tactics is what Israel was responding to when they took out a Hamas leader with a very precise bomb. This is the story that is being reported everywhere I have looked. I don`t see the reverse spin like you are saying. So again where are you getting your information? Please don`t tell me TYT because they are incredibly biased on the issue.

    @rockebooster:
    #1 Israel (the Nation) HAS TORN DOWN MANY "illegal" settlements. It HAS blocked (legal) expansions many times, it HAS done those things! It`s a fact.

    #2 You`ve convoluted "disputed territory" with "Israel", idk how... the mental gymnastics required!
    Palestinians ARE expanding their "settlements" within the "disputed territory" WITHOUT anyone protesting about it! Gaza, West Bank? Get it?

    The same rules (UN Laws) apply to both sides, right?
    NOT according to the "lefties"... they trumpet UN Law in one breath, then ignore it in the next...

    @McGovern: My support of the citizens of Gaza does not mean I support Hamas, Hezbollah, or any radical idea such as the Abbas quote. The ordinary Palestinians disproportionately bear the brunt of this conflict. What I am calling for is even-handling of this dispute. If we`re going to call out Hamas for firing rockets at Tel Aviv, we need to also call out the government of Israel for a disproportionate military response.

    By the way, targeting civilian infrastructure (water and power) is a violation of the fourth Geneva Conventio:

    "Art. 53. Any destruction by the Occupying Power of real or personal property belonging individually or collectively to private persons, or to the State, or to other public authorities, or to social or cooperative organizations, is prohibited, except where such destruction is rendered absolutely necessary by military operations."

    Oh my god 5Cats you are retarded. Your proof is pictures of people holding signs from a rally? Seriously. You know the kind of hatefully nuts that show up at rallies. Or are you saying that all the racist signs at the Tea Party rallies reflect who the Tea Party is? You can`t have it both ways. And don`t give me that BS that the racist signs at Tea Party rallies are plants because I could say the same BS about the signs you posted. The truth is rallies attract hateful people. It is the nature of a rally. Basically a rally is just an organized mob. And hateful people love a mob.

    Well well! Thanks for the source @FP. However, the context remains: over 1,000+ rockets fired at civilians" and this is his response to that...
    NOT like Hamas AT ALL. It`s still "f-e"...

    My support of the citizens of Gaza does not mean I support Hamas, Hezbollah, or any radical idea...
    Oh YES! Yes indeed it does!
    The people you support BELIEVE those things! Over 80% I`d guess, probably more! And the 20% who don`t are SILENT out of fear that their own people will harm them!

    ordinary Palestinians disproportionately bear the brunt of this conflict
    And WHO is to blame for that? Israel? Or Hamas who hides weapons in hospitals, mosques & schools? Uses civilians as human shileds? There are Hundreds of proven examples of those so don`t even try to deny it without PROOF.

    @FP: Again I ask: If I`m stabbing you, repeatedly, with a knife, and you have a gun? What`s the "proportionate" thing to do?
    IT`S WAR! ffs, Europeans should have figured that out by now...

    "Article 53" Tell that to the Americans! Bombing bridges and aluminium factories and whatnot... Israel is hitting weapons, Command & Control and other, purely military targets.
    HAMAS has placed those targets INSIDE civilian zones ON PURPOSE.

    @markust: did you LOOK at the ORGANIZERS and official groups involved? They`re not "sneaking into" the rally, they`re PART of it!
    The Tea Party? NEVER let the Nazi party (for example) march with them...
    The Anti-Israel rally? There they are!

    I would also like to post this Op-Ed by Gershon Baskin, who is a co-chairman at the Israeli Palestinian Center for Research:

    Link

    `I was able to learn firsthand that Mr. Jabari wasn’t just interested in a long-term cease-fire; he was also the person responsible for enforcing previous cease-fire understandings brokered by the Egyptian intelligence agency. Mr. Jabari enforced those cease-fires only after confirming that Israel was prepared to stop its attacks on Gaza. On the morning that he was killed, Mr. Jabari received a draft proposal for an extended cease-fire with Israel, including mechanisms that would verify intentions and ensure compliance.`

    Yeah what a shock. I don`t believe someone holding a sign reflects all the opinions of the people at the rally they are attending. Like I have said before you are the most gullible person I have ever encountered. Well, one sided gullible. But even that is being gullible in believing that there is even a left and right side.

    Two wrongs don`t make a right 5Cats, if anything Israel`s "precision strikes" on those targets are playing right into the hands of Hamas by encouraging the Palestinians to hate Israel even more.

    He conveniently glossed over that people who lived there for centuries were displaced- And yes, as an American I`m opening myself up to criticism and comparisons from you-know-who, because America is apparently the root of all evil- be that as it may.
    He also stated that Israel received international recognition; Not so much by the nations of that area, though- they didn`t want Israel at all.
    Here is what I think as an American: It`s their problem, let them sort it out. There are plenty of human rights violations on all sides- no one side is completely right, no one side is completely wrong.
    I just don`t want my government spending lives, resources and money on somebody else`s problem.
    You-know-who, you have the floor.

    Interesting perspective on history.....too bad it`s extremely biased.....notice the way he refers to anyone who doesn`t agree with Israel or who`s leftist is automatically "antisemitic"....there`s your clue right there that this guy`s perspective is self serving and not unbiased.

    So you expect Israel to sit and take it?


    They have a missile defense system they should use it. As for "disarming" Hamas there are less "explosive" ways to remove those launchers.

    "They have a missile defense system they should use it."

    It`s great for missiles, but rockets are small.

    Since the 14th, we have seen approximately 500 rockets launched into Israel, with Israel’s Iron Dome system intercepting about 180 of them.

    Remove their ability and desire to make war. If that means eradication, so be it. That`s their problem.

    If they don`t desire peace, then they will fight to the last child.

    `Remove their ability and desire to make war`

    These are contradictory statements, in a way. The desire by the Palestinians to make war comes from the heavy handed treatment they receive at the hands of Israel, treatment the Israelis justify as "removing their ability to make war."

    Al Jazeera is based in Qatar silly.
    @cajun: I couldn`t think of a second, uber-biased Arabic news source, so I made up "Saudi News" eh?
    As in "Saudi News Network: All the news Allah allows!"

    ...by encouraging the Palestinians to hate Israel even more.
    Is that EVEN POSSIBLE? With their government, schools Mosques AND news outlets all 100% HATE-FILLED, is it even possible to "hate Jews more"?

    And like @MacGovern said: What else can Israel do? 1,000 rockets falling on your nation is OK? If Mexico did it, for 20+ years, the USA would appeal to the UN for help?

    Not so much by the nations of that area, though- they didn`t want Israel at all.
    @CaptK: So the UN is utterly meaningless? So EVERY nation should have an ABSOLUTE veto?
    Togo? Aandora??

    @Cajun: No, there are NO "easier ways" to stop the rockets. None, period.

    I think the problem is that the only way Hamas will go away is if there`s a revolt by their citizens. Unfortunately Hamas knows this so every once in a while they`ll attack Israel, Israel will respond in kind causing collateral damage. Then Hamas will have the citizens blame Israel for their suffering even though to an outside observer Hamas is primarily the guilty party. It`s a rather wretched catch-22 spiral. It will, eventually, undo itself.

    Israel`s actions back Hamas` rhetoric unfortunately. It would be very suspicious if a govt claimed there was a battle within its borders even though zero gunshots were heard that day. At least any that would distinguish itself from the "noise" per se.

    Israel wants those rockets fired in to justify the bombing and continue the conflict. Those rockets don`t even cause any damage, they are basically bottle rockets with an m80 attached to them. Look at how many times a lull in the conflict was interrupted by Israel firing onto Palestinians. Otherwise Israel becomes irrelevant and cannot get financial support from the US, and detiorates into the poohole it`s in.

    I do find the election thing somewhat suspicious, especially since Netanyahu took a political hit for supporting Romney so strongly. Now that Israel is bombing Gaza, his popularity is at an all time high (heard that on NPR this afternoon).

    I won`t go so far as to assert this as truth, since it`s not a factual statement. Just suspicious.

    Not true. Plenty of indigenous peoples living there. The Jews can continue to live in Palestine or migrate to the US and other countries that`ll welcome them with open arms. They can come here for all I care. They just shouldn`t be there. I sincerely regret my country`s role in putting them there and apologise on behalf of our nation.

    The Israelites are the true stewards of that land. The fact that they now inhabit it is prophecy. Why screw with that? Just leave it be.

    The only reason Arabs were settled there, was through force. Saladin conquered the Holy Land during the crusades. Before then, Christians and, wait for it, JEWS governed it. The allies took it back for them.

    It is terrorism, plain an simple.

    So if you don`t know any better, is it OK to condemn Israel for taking THIS course of action?

    Maybe civilian casualties were an inevitable result of Israel`s response. That shouldn`t have to be the case next time. With a couple of exceptions no one here is criticising Israel for responding, rather the question are they seriously going to let what Hamas does be an excuse for inflicting civilian casualties? Especially considering, obviously, that`s EXACTLY what Hamas expects. Ultimately the choice between civilian casualties and no civilian casualties is a false one.

    @Cajun: Yes, Hamas wants civilian casualties! Jews, Arabs, ANYONE who dies makes them very happy! There have been many situations of their rockets `falling short` and hitting Gaza, but that`s OK with them. When a bomb making factory blew up & killed dozens of civilians? They just blmaed Israel! (It was in the basement of a civilian building, iirc)

    Israel cannot allow thousands of rockets to rain on it`s people, period!

    Spending billions on "Iron Dome" is ALSO a bad idea since the Hamas rockets are cheap! ID anti-rockets probably cost 20X as much as the ones they`re shooting down! Still, ID is better than nothing for the moral of the population.

    Jews I have no problem with Jews, but Israel? Then can erase that fecker from the map tomorrow and I would drink vintage champagne.
    Draculya, I have nothing against you, but I`d love to burn your house down with you and your family inside it.

    OldOllie i have decided to ignore you from long time and it was from the first or second post of you i have readed but this time let me say that you are a psycopath that most probably was abused from someone when was child.I can`t be so bad with you as i would like, cause the feeling that i have for you is more commiseration than rage.

    @piperfawn: you DID notice that @Draculya wished that every JEW in Israel were dead, right? You see that? It`s 100% exactly what he`s saying.

    Because it`s Hamas`s #1 goal: to rid "the Holy Land" of each and every Jew, PERIOD.

    ffs: Muslims aren`t even FROM that part of the world! They invaded and claimed it as their own!

    Also I said sorry, you see that too, eh?

    @OldOllie Come on over. I`ve set aside a really fine bottle of Dom for the day they finally settle the Israeli question.
