11. It was interesting....however...
The tactics of Israel are no different than the ones being employed by the PA..."We will control the terrorist factions...oooops, sorry about that bombing. We want the settlers houses them...NO, NO, we want them...wait, we...." Then, they turn around and say Israel is unreasonable and won't negotiate. How the hell can you negotiate with someone who doesn't even know what the hell they want?! Also, there are still members of the PA who WILL NOT recognize Israel. They see the establishment of the Palestinian homeland as "the first step" to "reclaiming all of Palestine." The PA needs to get those fools under control, or expel them!

The resistance mainly has been against civilian targets. I have NO respect for that at all! On the rare occasions, that a military or government target is attacked, THAT sounds more like resistance and "freedom fighting" than blowing up a bus!

Also, I was unaware there were Israelis who support the killing of Palestinian civilians. If they do exist, I am sure they are a radical fringe.
