    This is not accurate, while Israel is alone because the US has been no help at all; The Hammas have Iran and practically the whole arab world with them, not counting the russians who provide logistic support.

    I have a map of Biblical Palestine. The area now known as Gaza is marked ‘Philistines’ (who were mainly known for their black velvet paintings, but also for their extreme vulnerability to slings, even when wearing full armour).

    Aah, yes. The 3 Billion or so the US sends to Israel every year, in military and other aid, does not count. How about splitting it into half’s and give one half to the Palestinians?

    Where.. do you get those facts. ALONE.. Israel has been propped up since day one with arms, which incidentally includes nuclear weapons, financial aid. And when they run out of bombs they simply ask for more from the US.

    MIchael, and the “biblical” Israel extended to the Euphrates,which is still on some folks minds, and expectations for the future.

    “Palestine” and “Philistine” are cognates.
    The words are relate, not the people.
    Today’s Palestinians are not descendents of the Philistines. I think the original Philistines may have been a Greek colony & are long gone, wiped out by Ashurbanipal?
    Arabs have wandered in & out of the area in recent centuries but immigrated from other parts of greater Arabia in large numbers after the modern Jewish settlers started making it a nice place.

    Anyone who puts Israel down for defending their selves is an idiot – period.

    Israel did not start the conflict, and is only defending its self. You can believe the truth, or choose to be ignorant.

    By this toon’s logic, we are bullies for fighting with al quida. Just because you are bigger, that doesn’t mean you are the bad guy.

    I read the hamas charter last night. If you can read that and still think there is some equivalence, you should move to Iran.

    Large numbers of Arab, Muslims and Christians, living in Gaza, hate Hamas, just as large numbers of Israelis do NOT SUPPORT Netanyahu and Likud’s aggressions and lethality of purpose.


    American’s seem only to accept black or white, and make 99% of their choices out of ignorance, be it in Ukraine, Palestine, or on our own southern border region (where impacts occur in Ohio!). It’s bad news when “good” or “bad” are determined by “stupid and arrogant”, instead of informed and understanding.

    Some Jewish opinions about the conflict. Please note that the first link was translated from Hebrew, the second is by a Brit.

    Tigger, like most, confuses “Jew” with “Likud” and the extremist right-wing that sides with “Nutty-yahoo”. Being aware of how bad his government is on human rights violations is NOT to condemn all “Jews”, even Israelis.


    Just as all Republicans are NOTTEA party” folks, so things go with false assumptions, but if you throw in religious extremism, talking sense just doesn’t work, with any of their sects or sub-sects.

    Good articles in that it articulates well what I think, too.
    The 1st article: I saw and met Israelis almost 20 years ago who knew dialogue was needed. I believed then that these few people I met were seeds of a critical mass that would push for positive change, just as had occured in SA. I was wrong, of course, perhaps the number of seeds have dwindled instead. However, I still see chinks of light when I read the likes of David Grossman (read other articles by him as well) .
    The 2nd: Abroad I think we may have a positive turning point. The disapora are recognising the futility of that conflict, precisely because they are not within that bubble. That re-enforces my belief that not all hope is lost.
    Belief ;-) Oh dear…
    PS: While I’m not saying some innitaitive from the Palestinians isn’t required; I am of the opinion that the onus on effecting positive change has to be from Israel. However, all I see are bad-faith moves on Israel’s side: more illegal setlements, more discrimination against Arab Israelis…
    Israel holds the power, Israel holds the clout, not the Palestinians.

    The same people that say illegal aliens have a right to be in the U.S. won’t give the jews a small place to live.

    A country they turned from a few oasis’s into a real lush, vibrant country…. They just want to live in there homeland. Isn’t that more just than letting illegals in the u.s.?
