    And THAT is the real reason for outrage, by any civilized society, and the reason Netanyahu and the long-standing right wing extremists in Israel , not “Jews” or even “Israel” per-se should have been sanctioned, or stronger action, years ago.

    Interesting: The true story is
    Israel invests in weapons to protect its civilians
    Hamas invests its civilians to protect its weapons!

    Israel is trying to limit the civilian casualties, while Hamas does not appear to care. They fire their weapons from school yards, playgrounds. Why in the knowledge they might prevent a retalitory strike, or gain more innocent victims.

    The true causes of why the victims should be mentioned, not just the Israel is bad campagain. Where Israel is wrong then hold them accountable, but Hamas has a large part of the blame!

    So Ted, when did Isreal just decide to launch some missiles into Gaza for no reason?
    I know you like to equate terrorists to freedom fighters like you did with OBL, but this is a country under attack by a neighbor who’s stated goal is to destroy their country and kill all their citizens.
    Should Israelis just build themselves concentration camps?

    Egypt blocks Gaza and has been blocking it for years. Alle other Arab nations support the slaughter of civilians in Gaza by giving money to terrorists. They want those people to die in high numbers. And the Arab nations don’t let the people who have been born in their countries for 2 generations (or three) not integrate and keep them as “fugitives”, because they want their number as a extinction threat to Israel. Arabic Israelis have full rights. Go anywhere into the Middle East: nobody wants another war-field among Iran/Syria and Saudi-Arabia on the other side. Least of all you Christians: Do you truly believe that you’d be able to still visit Jerusalem if it’s in the hand of Muslims?
    The Arab world plays a silent game and all your shouts against Israel is as if you’d shout at the fox for burrowing against a hundred dogs.

    Plus ça change…. It’s been pretty much like this since Truman sent 2 million Jewish refugees to Palestine, whether they wanted to go or not.

    “I know you like to equate terrorists to freedom fighters like you did with OBL

    In which cartoon has Ted equated bin Laden to a freedom fighter? Me thinks you pulled that one right out of your @$$.

    but this is a country under attack by a neighbor who’s stated goal is to destroy their country and kill all their citizens.

    One could make the claim Israel’s intent is to push the Palestinians out of the land captured from them and kill any who try to stop them. While there are extremists on both sides for whom both those assertions are true, it’s not for the majority of either populations. BTW, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin had made great strides in making a lasting peace settlement with the Palestinians He agreed to stop destroying their settlements and to recognize their existence. The Palestinians agreed to a cease fire, and to recognize Israel’s existence. Rabin was killed by an Israeli Jew who was opposed to peace.

    Should Israelis just build themselves concentration camps?

    Seeing as how Israeli hard liners want to do to the Palestinians what the Americans did to the Indians, I’d have to agree that it would be just faster for the Israelis to put the Palestinians into concentration camps.

    What planet are you living on. Hamas rejoices when an Israeli child is killed, Israeli’s cry when any child is killed.

    The Palestinian people have had their aspirations hijacked by Hamas and other radical groups.

    Egypt and other moderate Muslim countries do not support Hamas and its goals.

    I think cruftschamp makes important points that are far too often ignored. There wouldn’t BE any refugees if the Muslim nations weren’t perpetuating the “refugee camps” through multiple generations. Those people should have been integrated into Muslim countries long ago. I don’t doubt there’d still be a lot of problems in Palestine, but the situation of eternal refugee camps is just salt in the wound.

    Absolutely! If your country has a bunch of refugees on its border you have a moral responsibility to take them in….

    “Should Israelis just build themselves concentration camps?”

    Don’t they have that already? Isn’t the Gaza strip a concentration camp? You have 1.8 million people living on 139 sq miles. Cut off from the outside world, with everything controlled and rationed by Israel.For 45 years. With no chance of improvement. No wonder it drives some people crazy.

    If I take a swing at a heavy weight boxing champion and I wake up the next morning in the hospital, should I blame the boxer? What does Hamas think will happen when they lob missiles at Israel? Shooting missiles at a foreign country is an internationally recognized act of war. Targeting civilians or deliberately endangering civilians by using them as shields are internationally recognized war crimes. What is Hamas playing at? I feel terrible that the people of Gaza are served by such incredibly stupid and evil leaders.

    When they put chairs on hilltops and sip drinks and watch the attacks, they’re “crying.”
