6. Fishing for sharks that involves throwing chums in the water...

is less fishing and more manslaughter.

7. I just heard that on Up. I thought that was kind of

ironic coming from the President of the USA. I think the list of countries we have bombed since WWII would be longer than the list we haven't.

9. Not Me!

 

If Israeli troops were here and set up Martial Law, patrolled our streets all armored up carrying automatic weapons with back up from armored vehicles and aircraft, breaking down our doors with impunity, stopping anyone at will, stealing our land and bull dozing our homes. I'd be angry enough to start killing them too. Rockets landing in their back yards would be the least of their problems! Iíve about had it with this so called ally of ours using American tax dollars to commit evil acts!

11. regardless of what you think about martial law

hamas was launching rockets into civilian areas,targeting civilians. maybe if the gaza wasnt so willing to let terrorists live among themselves they wouldnt have to deal with its effects.

12. True.

Esp. if they did that without provocation. Otherwise there'd be some reason for it and to ignore the reason would presuppose that we had a right to the provocation.

I don't see what this has to do with Gaza.

No martial law. No armored patrols. No breaking down of doors. No stopping anyone at will. No land stealing at this point--even land that was purchased by private groups was donated to the Gazan cause by the Israeli government--and no bulldozing of homes. Except by Hamas.

Everything else amounts to not allowing somebody who said they want to kill you from arming itself or not giving them the arms to kill you with.

Not nice. Not pretty. Not unilateral. But there's a clear way forward. It's just that would involve compromise with one's lessers, and that's humiliating, esp. when you're convinced that you'll win and get all the land you've ever wanted, with the awesome prosperity that is rightfully yours.

16. your absolutely right

 

There are just certain groups of people who naturally need to be ok with being put into a open air ghetto/prison and having every means of exit and entry denied. Also, they need to be ok with having their homes demolished and their civilians murdered.



I, like you, fully support any country that needs to defend itself after imposing these conditions on others.

The GALL of some people complaining and whining and wanting a pony of not being in a ghetto and food and houses to live in.

The shame!
