    you have to remember that most if not all israelis don't think of Palestinians as we have the ability to from a safe distance,

    to them, Palestinians are nothing more than a group of people hell bent on the destruction of Israel, committed to the genocide of all jews, and the ones who fire rockets at preschools for fun. not exactly the best neighbors in the world.

    i mean, if the people of new hampshire were firing rockets at vermont, i can't imagine the people of vermont would welcome them with open arms.

    Yes, I know that Palestinians are under extreme duress, and yes I know much of that is due to israel's blockade etc... i'm not saying that it is an accurate or correct view of palestinians, but you have to put yourself in their shoes.

      excuses are excuses.

      I quit school very young, and never learned how to believe things just because I was told to.

      "civilized" countries use F-16s, cluster bombs and white phosphorous for that sort of thing.

          palestinians have every right to be pissed at the israelis, and israelis feel like they have every right to be pissed at palestinians.

      So because one group is paranoid, another group has to suffer?

      You may think that. I couldn't possibly comment.-- Francis Urqhart

        I would think those are pretty accurate statements about the goals of Hamas. Hamas doesn't exactly hide the fact that it wants to destroy israel and get rid of the jews, and that it shoots rockets into civilian areas.

        and while i recognize that not all, if even a majority, of palestinians support the widely publicized and vocal goals of hamas, isn't not unreasonable for israelis to think that they might, seeing hamas keeps getting "elected".

        as with all israeli and palestinian posts on this site or else i might face the rage of being called a terrorist lover and child killer, i have to admit that israel has not been kind to the palestinians either, both sides have faults etc etc etc.
