The Palestinians are the terrorists. Their is your answer right there.
The Pallies get what they deserve for provoking Israel. Israel should use more white phosphorus and cluster bombs in the future,so as to create more death in Gaza. They should use napalm as well. If that doesn't work, then Israel should drop one or two tactical nukes on Gaza.
ok first off.. palestinians "provoked" israel... how exactly?? palestinians were living in their own country... not annoying anyone and then israel came up with all these excuses and came here and began to kill people... check TRUE history then come back here..
so you're saying this started in 2001?? this started way before 1948. but in '48 israelis began to attack palestinian civilians. this left israel with about 67% of confiscated palestinian land. there was another "war" in 1967. this basically summarizes at least a half of it:
"7 wars. 5 million Palestinian Refugees. 3.5 million Occupied. 1.5 million Abducted-hostages. 254 km of an Apartheid- Wall?. 562 Humiliation-check-points. 20000 Political-prisoners. 468,831 new settlers on an Occupied land"
In 1947,the UN wanted to partition the land into both a Jewish state and an Arab state. But the Arab nations were against it,and you know how it goes from there. And BOTH Israelis and Arabs committed war crimes during the 1948 war. Stop spinning history to suit your needs. And the 1967 war was a preemptive strike by Israel against its neighbors' increasing belligerancy. Egypt,Syria,and Jordan were going to attack Israel,so the Israelis had to act.
And I would like you to cite the source from which you got your information. Because I don't believe those facts for a second.
how did arabs commit war crimes in 48? there was no israel. that's why they wanted to attack the "Jews" in palestine. palestine was a country for arabs. jews came and occupied it and called it israel. i'm not spinning history, i'm telling you my life story.
and about not believing those facts. what if i told you i didn't believe facts about the holocaust. it's the exact same thing. a person usually doesn't torture someone else when he or she knows how it feels. a holocaust happened in gaza a few months ago. and even worse than the first.
Arabs did commit war crimes during the 1948 war. You should look it up.
And Jews lived in the land long before the Arabs did. The name "Palestine" actually has its origins in the Roman Empire. The Romans renamed Judea(land given to the Jews) to Palestine after they drove the Jewsm out of the land. "Palestine" was never a land for Arabs.
Also, are you seriously comparing the REAL Holocaust to that minor engagement in Gaza a few months ago? That has to be some sick joke. The Israelis went easy on Gaza. They should have used much more firepower.
that's what the tawra says, that this land is for jews. but both the qur'an and bible [might be wrong about the bible] say that this land is palestinian, for arabs. before the holocaust, before england gave this land to the jews, everyone had their own country, they were all content. arabs here in palestine, and jews all over the place. i'm not saying this land was free of jews.. i know they've been living here long ago, but we were all living in peace, in one country, a UNITED country.
minor engagement? thousands and thousands of CIVILIANS were killed in a few days... it was proven that if this went on as long as the holocaust did, the numbers would have been way higher.
Well, I'm not big fan of Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel does conduct asymmetric retaliatory strikes that kill innocents and they do demolish Palestinian houses on dubious proof of connection to terrorism, but they at least care about their own people. Hamas don't even have that, they happily use children as suicide bombers and fire rockets from populated areas. They get all the glamor of resistance while the civilians in Gaza and Lebabonon pay the price.
Also, the reason that the Israilis kill more then the "terrorists" is because Israel has better resources and there is a wall now making it harder to get at Israili busses and caffes now. Just because Israel's enemies are ineffectial and aren't as good at war doesn't make them kind or morally superior, imho.
