    Perfect analysis of the situation. The only thing missing are a few tanks and jet fighters.

    Looks about right.

    To complete the blood libel shouldn’t the caricatured jewish man be making some sort of passover dish out of the blood?

    The toon is sadly 100% correct. The right wingers who’ve abused the people of Gaza for a long time ARE the reason for over 50% of the problem. Stealing land on the West Bank doesn’t help either.


    Maybe the Peel Commission recommendations back in the "20’s would have worked for a two state solution, including East Jerusalem being under Arab control, but the U.N. didn’t follow it, or enforce the boundaries they DID set, with Israel continuing violations, and screaming still “victim status”.

    It’s named “ViewsMidEast”. Whether you approve of the view, it is definitely of the MidEast.

    So half the comics on GoComics should be in the "views of … ". Since they address subjects in other countries?
    This is suppose to give us a view of what people in the affected region are thinking.

    Blah, blah, blah. The name of this specific cartoon series is “ViewsMidEast”. It features selected cartoons that deal with the MidEast subject. If it were specifically for cartoons originating within the MidEast, it would be named "ViewsFromMidEast. It’s not.

    I would like to point you to this newspaper report:
    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/20/israelis-cheer-gaza-bombing
    .
    Now about those poor victimized Israelis?? Isn’t this the kind of response that when it comes from a Muslim community, you people condemn? But is it OK with you when it’s coming from your own?

    Who would know better about the violence resulting from the splitting of a tribe than the Irish?

    Yes, it is. It is human nature to cheer for your side when in a fight for your life.

    This is nothing new. I know that you know that this went on throughout history. In America, It is a popular, almost legendary, story that innumerable civilians armed with picnic baskets followed the Union Army out from Washington in July 1861 to watch what everyone thought would be the climactic battle of a short rebellion.
