  •  The american patriots were fighting to (5+ / 0-)

    establish a country where people could enjoy civil liberties. Hamas is fighting to build an Islamic theocracy and the Jews are driven into the sea. See the difference?

      Both the I & P are trying to push each other into the sea, and both belong in The Hague.

      Right?  You do agree, don't you?  You do recognize the shared responsiblity of Israel for this conflict?

      Meanwhile, children are dying and there goes the next generation.

      Your tax dollars at work.

      •  Israel is hardly trying to push the Arabs (0+ / 0-)

        into the sea. I that was their goal it would have been done a long time ago.
        It is the clearly stated goal of Hamas and they are the elected government of the Gaza population which is a causus belli sufficient to justify all out war. Israel has been reluctant to wage all out war but have not been rewarded by Hamas moderation, rather escalation. This action was overdue and will likely lead to a more peaceful long term just as it has with Egypt and even Lebanon.

          Would that be all Arabs or just the Palestinians?

          It is clearly the stated goal of Israel to anhilate Hamas and they are doing so with no regard for human life, including innocent children.

          You say Israel has been reluctant to wage war but this operation has been planned for months.

          For years I have supported the state of Israel. Now I am reconsidering and apologists like you are pushing me closer to not supporting them, just as I do not support Hamas (although I recognize both as elected governments).

          They have gone too far. Israel is turning the world against them, and it has nothing to do with Anti-Semitism. It has to do with the policy and actions of the State of Israel.

    •  we are all terrorists (0+ / 0-)

      The word "terrorist" means absolutely nothing. When people like the Bush White House or the Gov't in Tel Aviv (who I do not equate with Israel) talk of terrorists it's just propaganda. If the word existed in 1776 the brits would have called the Americans "terrorists" for the "Indian style" of fighting that our history books are so proud of. And if WW2 had turned out differently Harry Truman would have been hung by the balls for the fire-bombings in Germany & Japan as well as the atomic bombings.
        Both sides in the Gaza conflict are wrong and both sides have legit gripes. There is too much suffering & someone needs to take the IDF & Hamas & bang their heads together until they stop this insanity.

      •  Leadership decapitation of Hamas is the goal (0+ / 0-)

        It is clear that the IDF has set out to destroy the Hamas leadership and command and control capability. It will be a lot easier to negotiate with what is left. Hamas has been provoking this response and obviously failed to notice what happened to Herzbollah in the most recent war. No matter what has been said about that war, their leader regretted it and has stopped firing missiles.
