52. You really only want to answer the questions which you would like me to ask!.......
..why limit it to western democracies....i get from your other posts that you respect the values of other non western cultures...

I suspected it......You really only want to answer the questions which you would like me to ask!

Unfortunately, that is not the way civilized debate works.....Now, which posts of mine said I was anything other than disgusted with Hamas's or indeed any Muslim or illiberal culture?



(just for the record i'm undecided about house demolition as i've never come across any info to know if it serves to limit attacks or not).

Thank you for your implied admission that Israel is guilty of collective punishment.......What troubles me now is that in spite of your much vaunted claim to principles, you seem to think immoral acts are justified if they produce results.

In my moral code (supported I believe by the Geneva Convention) collective punishment of civilians is simply immoral and a war crime......It cannot be justified by claiming there is no other way of achieving the objective. (ie limiting attacks)
