    How do you define “pain”? Is an amoeba that swims away from a given chemical feeling pain? Is consciousness necessary to feel pain, i.e., does the organism have to have a sense of self? Is a reflex action proof of feeling pain? Until youi can answer such questions, your “moral position” is quite weak. Try again, maybe you can get something to discuss seriously.

    Right…and all jobs are due to a single factor, the actions of the President.

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

    I wish you would tell me just what you’re advocating then. It sounds to me as if you’re saying that we’re sooo righteous and sooo noble that it’s our job to kick enough a$$ to get everybody in the world to live by what we decree.

    Yes, another “biased” comment by a Jewish journalist for you to denigrate. And I might point out that the violence against temples in both Miami and France would probably not have occurred without the Israeli over-reaction in Gaza and failure to even try for connection with Palestinian moderates. The fault is not all on one side.

    I find it really sad that your mind appears to be so closed to any other avenue to approach this problem except for extreme violence. I can tell that nothing anyone else says in opposition to your approach is going to be immediately tossed out by you as fantasy, bias, whatever.
    “The Other Side’ is not the monolith of your imagination. There are people who would like to eliminate Israel, but perhaps there are even more people who want peace of some sort. (I’d be willing to bet, from what I’ve heard and read that Hamas, which is having its own problems hanging together, would not win an election if one were held now…but you don’t seem to care about those kinds of uncertainties and possibilities. You are wearing a giant chip on your shoulder that I am afraid is going to cause you much grief.)

    Another point of view that I recommend you read:
    The grindstone of Israeli-Palestinian violence

    Empathy is a very valuable characteristic when dealing with human problems. This commentator has it.

    It looks as if there are Israelis who have some ideas more in line with what I would agree with:
    The grindstone of Israeli-Palestinian violence

    Whatever. It seems to me that we have a very different view of what mankind is. As I remember, you think that it was our greed and aggressiveness that got us out of the caves. I, on the other hand, think it was our ability to cooperate, empathize, and form strong socially cohesive groups that got us out of the caves and in fact formed the basis for our survival as a species when other Homo species failed. I think that pretty much sums up the basis for our disagreement in this and other areas.

    No one is saying listen to the psychopaths. We are just saying that the cost in innocent human life and well-being must be considered and possible other avenues to approach the defanging of the psychopaths should be considered. Just ask yourself, if you were a Palestinian, what options do you have? Is it not possible that if reasonable options were available to the man in the street Gazan, he would take them? Has Israel or the world as a whole offered such options? If as that man in the street, you were seeing your family, friends and property destroyed, would you look with favor on the destroyer? In other words, put yourself in the other’s shoes. You must be aware that the radical Islamics do not have all that much popular support but can garner a measure of support because of the “common enemy”…just as we do here in the US, by the way.
