    Lessee! Who pushed for the 2006 elections in Gaza from this country, that eventually brought Hamas to rule in Gaza? Hmmm, does Bush ring a bell?

    I don’t care for Hamas, Hezbolla, Al Qaeda, Taliban, or Likud, they’re all NUTS! But, on the 14th, Israel shot first, again. The fifth largest military in the world, Israel, has turned Gaza into a prison camp, with blockades, constant attacks, and their “opposition” still manages to fight back.


    Hamas was ELECTED, because Israel has been trying to wipe THEM off the map (all Palestinian Arabs), or deprive them of all jobs, economic gains, or freedom.


    Maybe if Israel, and the U.S., following their lead, as guided by AIPAC, just STOPPED bombing every middle east country NOT run by right-wing Zionists (these are NOT just Jews, but the most radical element of the faith, just like Hamas) we might see some peace?


    Well since Moses led the folks out of Egypt, that little tribe started attacking their neighbors, the “diaspora” was brought on because they refused to live in peace with ANYONE! They’re back doing the same thing, and maybe it’s time to slap them upside the head and say STOP!


    As to the ‘toon, btw, when you’re in one of the most densely populated small pieces of land in the world, it’s a little tough for fighters defending the area NOT to be among the “civilian” population. Think about staging a military operation against invaders away from civilians, on Manhattan Island.

    One thing that all non-governmental actors (terrorists, revolutionaries,etc.) have in common is that they are able to hide among the people. Not always effective, but always a means to complain about “civilian” casualties.

    Israel gave the entire Gaza Strip to the Arabs in 2005, forcing Jewish property owners to leave at gunpoint. The improved properties then became “owned” by the Arabs, including large and profitable greenhouses…which the Arabs immediately destroyed. And as soon as the Arabs had possession, they began firing rockets and missiles at Jewish homes and schools. They kept this up ever since.
    ISRAEL DID NOT START THISWAR’.
    ISRAEL IS DEFENDING JEWISH CITIZENS.
    Israel is not trying to eliminate Arabs, it is the other way…Arabs are dedicated to pushing every Jew off the Land of Palestine, in Gaza and Judea and Samaria and they claim Jerusalem for the Arabs and never have recognized that since 1948 the Jews have a nation on the map named Israel.
    I suspect dtrout is Arab and hates Jews, who have rights to the Land that the God of the Torah gave them for eternity.
    Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are “Palestine” owners…with 3000 years of history of living in their own Land, always a remnant living on Israel’s soil and now a restored Nation that God will not permit be taken away from His Jewish People.
    Arabs have far more Lands than the Jews small nation!

    @disgustedtaxpayer

    You prove dtroutma’s point. It’s impossible to have a rational conversation with someone who claims to be “God’s chosen”. It dosen’t mater if they are Jews, Muslims or Christians.

    If the taxpayer is so disgusted, maybe he should lobby for an end to aid to both sides!

    Few have the resources to stand against a superpower’s front line weapons. It has become more and more common for terrorists to place their weapon systems near locations where the chance of collateral damage to turn the loss of a piece of equipment into a propaganda attack. They carefully show the bodies of children but keep the ruins of the rocket launcher out of the frame. In many cases, the worst of the damage is caused by ordinance that blew up after being struck by precision weapons.
    I truly feel for the people of gaza. They are under the thumb of hardline Israelis who have no interest in good faith negotiations and are too unorganized and desperate for help to try and fight Hamas, an organization that despite its terrorism against Israel, provide food, medicine, and vital services to the Isolated population of Gaza. No one wants to shoot the guy bringing medicine to the kids, but they sure hate it when those same people get the kids killed by putting missile launchers next to the schools and hospitals.
    Sadly,

    dt: Gaza was run by Egypt long before Israel entered the scene. Egypt ruled the area in fact when the Hebrews, or “Israelites” were but a small tribe at the time of Ramses II’s son. The “bible view” is simply built on a myth created by those ancient Hebrews, for their own benefit. It’s time for modern folks, Jew or “evangelicals” to settle down and “get over it”!


    btw: Buddhist monks committed suicide to draw the world’s attention to atrocities committed by the SOUTH Vietnamese government, and Americans, in an effort to STOP WAR! Would only that “bible folks” (ALL Abrahamic religions) tried as hard to preserve peace, as wars.

    @ansonia, God bless you for your post. I also am at a loss to explain why American Jews vote against Israel’s interests.
    -
    dtroutma won’t answer if he is an Arab with lifelong hatred for Jews….he seems to have the same viewpoint as the Israeli Arabs that pretend to be descendants of the Philistines…a proven lie….even “educated” Islamic Mideast leaders lie and try to erase the Hebrew/Jewish history in Palestine since the lifetime of Abraham.
    -
    WW1 and WW3 brought Western powers redrawing boundaries and renaming nations….The UN offered 2 separate neighbor STATES to the Jews and the Arabs….in 1948 the Jews accepted the UN proposal and became the nation of Israel; the Arabs scornfully rejected the offer of Statehood and started a war of elimination on Israel’s Independence Day.
    -
    most winners of wars are allowed to keep the territory they win by defending and winning….except in one instance when it is Israel that wins defensive wars…..then the Western Powers and the UN give in to the loser-war-starters and oppose the lawfully justified Israel, which has roots in Palestine for more than 3,000 years….
    -
    if cursers of Israel live long enough, they will see the returned Messiah of Israel set everyone straight and move Israel’s boundaries to Lebanon east to the Euphrates and across Gaza to the River Nile. The Jewish people won’t do that, God’s Son will do that in person.

    This has been going on for thousands of years. Recent history is not really relevant, it seems.

    A couple of years ago, Christianne Amanpour (sorry if I mis-spelled) hosted a three-part series on CNN called “God’s Warriors”. One part was devoted to fundamentalist Muslims, one to fundamentalist Christians (including Jerry Falwell’s last interview), and one to fundamentalist Jews.

    They all said (although the Christians shouted) the same thing: “There’s an ancient scroll. We believe in it. If you don’t, you’re wrong, and I’ll kill you over it if I have to.”

    I don’t see this ever ending without some sort of annihilation. Doesn’t matter who’s in the White House.

    A Jewish friend of mine, who was born and grew up in Israel, said that native Jews got along pretty well with the Arabs in Israel before the waves of immigration. She pointed out that the hard liners in the Israeli government are actually immigrants, mostly from USA, who really hadn’t a clue what the reality on the ground was like when they came and quickly got into politics and started drumming up conflict. She left in disgust. Taxpayers should also be disgusted with Israeli politics, not blinded by the zealots.

    ^It is that difference between “Jew”, and “radial Zionist”. While Netanyahu is Sabra, he was educated, and spent much of his life in the U.S.. MOST Israelis are IMMIGRANTS to that land, but their birthrate is increasing the number of “native born” in the last decade or so.


    I too know folks who’ve lived for some time in Israel, and declined to remain, because of the violence Likud, and the far right have promoted, as well as the stealing of ever more land from the Arab population.


    Again, it never seems to matter how often you say it, having sympathy for truly “peace seeking” Jewish Israelis and merely recognizing that despising the war-mongering right int their population, and government is NOT a conflict.


    Israel’s insanely over-grown military is like our own, as one American general said of the F-22; If we didn’t intend to use it, we wouldn’t buy it. Use it on whom??

    -
    you watched a Biased series that was edited to arouse antipathy against any “fundamentalist” of Christianity or Judaism and slanted to favor the Islamic viewpoint.
    -
    Christianne is very biased in her news “reporting” as is CNN usually biased against Israel and both promote the Arab/Islamic false propaganda against the Jewish government.
    CNN recently aired false video made in Syria in the past in order to “show the world the brutality of Israel” in this last Pillar of Defense against the deliberate increase of Hamas’ firings of a thousand rockets, some long-range hitting Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in order to provoke a short war.
    -
    I have never heard any Christian or Christian group shout that if people don’t believe the Torah or Bible, “we will kill you”! Certainly no group associated with Jerry Falwell ever threatened to kill anyone….
    Never!
