    Israel blows up a Hamas leader, they retaliate, and it’s all Hamas’ fault?? BTW “Iron Dome” seems to be working, which means along with other systems they have (for longer range efforts), Iran is HOW much a threat?

    Sorry, but even Morn has this one wrong.

    You were probably upset when our Navy SEALS took out Osama too. Israel knows O doesn’t have their back so they’re taking care of things themselves.

    Why on earth should we be taking care of Israel? They’re rich, they’re better armed than pretty much anyone in the region, and they haven’t done a blessed thing for us (other than try to tell us what to do). For the last several years, Israel has been a drag on us.

    At the risk of invoking Godwin’s Law…
    Sometimes I think that the Israelis learned a bit too much during the Holocaust.
    The first thing the Nazis did was to confiscate the property of the Jews.
    The first thing the Israeli government did was to confiscate the property of the Palestinians for their new Settlements.

    Of course, the Palestinians are students of history too. They won’t let themselves be herded into the concentration camps.

    It used to be that the Israelis were the good guys. Now, BOTH sides are like a couple of kids fighting over… Well, they just HAVE to fight.

    Amusing how anyone would look at this in any context other than the pervasive, endless death spiral it really is.

    I don’t think there’s been one year of “negative growth” under Obama…in spite of Bush’s debacles.

    This whole cartoon is a bit backwards, though. When you look at numbers, both of attacks and casualties, Palestinian casualties outnumber Israeli casualties about ten to 1. And that’s not even breaking down how many of those casualties are kids.

    Israel has pursued an aggressive policy of land-grabs against the Palestines, and in addition have done a great deal to cut Palestinians off from water supplies, healthcareand medical supplies, building permits and supplies, and often, work. There is an ongoing effort to deprive Palestinians of places to live which goes almost entirely unreported in US media.

    Many of the Palestinian villages are Bedouin and other local peoples, which have been there since before the formation of Israel. Now, imagine that the above were happening on American land. How do you think you all would respond…?

    Before anyone accuses me of being anti-Semitic, I am certainly not; half my family is Jewish, and my father absolutely idolized Golda Meir. But what Israel is doing is the worst of politics, it is no longer a defense of a victimised religion. Having been subject to ludicrous prejudice and damaging policies for centuries in Europe, the Jewish Israeli government is now taking its turn to be the bully. And that is shameful.

    @Lynne B

    So the Israeli treat the Palestinians the same as the US treated Native Americans?
    Well of course it is correct then.
    But 10:1 casualties? Maybe the the Palestinians should stop shooting at them, they seem to be losing big time when return fire comes.

    Amount of Israeli dead in past week


    Seriously wounded

    Amount of Palestinians dead

    47 ( 12 of which were militants, 35 of which were civilians)

    seriously wounded
    somewhere around 280

    Unfortunately Issues in the middle east will keep going for a long time, that said you can’t condemn the Palestinians for killing 3 people and then condone the Israelis when they harm a population 130 times larger

    This whole affair has seriously embarassed the Netanyahu governent. Up until the rocket attacks started ,they were claiming in the media that the threat had been neutralized

    When someone suggests Susan Rice might be in error they are called sexist and racist. By your comment above you have officially admitted you are an anti-semite. See what our President said today about the conflict and its cause. Nothing you ever say for the rest of your life about the mid-east can ever be taken seriously.

    “A “serious” effort to work toward Middle East peace “starts with no more missiles being fired into Israel’s territory,” U.S. President Barack Obama said Sunday.

    Rocket attacks into Israel were the “precipitating event” for the fighting under way now, he said. “We are actively working with all the parties in the region to see if we can end those missiles being fired without further escalation of violence in the region.”

    The United States and a number of European countries have put the brunt of the blame for the current crisis on Hamas, saying Israel has a right to protect itself. Arab and Muslim nations, meanwhile, have accused Israel of being the aggressor.
