24. You didn't address my common sense points.

As a matter of common sense, if I want my children to grow up, get educated, and become prosperous and happy, I'd work toward that end. Lobbing rockets at a big country just seems illogical to me. No matter the background.

Ive read quite a bit on the background of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict(s), over the years. That's how I know that the Palestinians have had trouble in several places (Egypt comes to mind), where they have gotten into the terrorism thing with other arabs, and so been kicked out. I mean, when I thought about it, as I read these articles, I couldn't pinpoint any time or any place where the Palestinians lived in peace with others. Maybe the articles didn't include everything, I don't know. I was just asking the question.

Questions are necessary and good in any discussion. If you are offended by a question, maybe this issue is too close to your heart that you've lost objectivity.

As for Americans....my post didn't include any opinions on that. This is a common debate tactic used by a debater who isn't winning an argument. Except I'm not arguing. If you re-read my post, you'll see I'm merely asking questions, from an objective, common sense point of view.

Maybe if the Palestinians and Israel put women in control of things, these matters would get less violent and would get worked out eventually. The Palestinians used to have a woman leader, if I recall correctly, but she dropped out of the national scene, for some reason.

I also know that tens of thousands of Israelis have been killed by Palestinians over the years. It's not only that Israelis have killed Palestinians.
