Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

@BB
Go back and reread the original sources (I did) and you'll likely find the following:
"According to the Israeli military...."
"....Netanyahu stated"
"A spokesman for the Israeli army...."

Be careful the sources you get your news from, and how they shape the debate.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

@Karn
You are so one sided and brainwashed that it is not even worth trying to point out the inaccuracies in your posts.

@all
Religious zealotry be it Christian, Muslim or Jewish is almost always very negative. Combine that with rabid nationalism such as the case with Likud and other even more extreme movements and it is recipe for moral disaster. All Muslims and especially Hamas is certainly not innocent in all of this but the utterly disproportionate response makes Israel clearly an evil party in this latest assault.
Bloodgimp makes an interesting point " It's almost as if he forgot that his own people experienced their own genocide say, what, just 80 years ago..." Given that horrid and dark chapter in human history why would they possibly want to add a few pages of their own to it?

Let's not forget however that this and other recent flash points are also a proxy war between Iran vs. Israel and Saudi Arabia to assert themselves in the middle east as the regional power.
(Yes Saudi Arabia the hotbed of terrorism whose crooked leaders are more concerned with their lavish lifestyles than caring about other Muslims)

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

The world's foremost mathemetician and theoretical physicist, an Arab-American woman, has solved one of CL's most enduring mysteries using two simple, yet quite elegant, differential equations which are shown here:

terrorist = bad
non-terrorist = good

The explosive discovery which rocked the CL (Cunty Leftist) boards early Wednesday morning seems to end the debate over whether or not words actually have meanings. Non-terrorists agree that these equations do further demonstrate the idea that the current conflict in Gaza is a "very, very small part of a much larger picture" and that bloodgimp is sadly irrelevant.

"It's time we take political correctness and throw it in the garbage where it belongs, and start calling a spade a spade," said noted activist and Arab-American Muslim Brigitte Gabriel.

"All civilian deaths, as regrettable as they are, fall squarely on Hamas's shoulders," added Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"Right. I'm a bigoted piece of garbage, and Hamas is good. Got it."

You got half of it right. I can see basic comprehension skills are a problem for you.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

The state of Israel was created after WWII. The USA facilitated an invasion of Palestine where they took over the land and renamed it Israel. We have that to thank for all the trouble since. Zionism is wrong. Israel in the holy sense of the word is not a physical place but rather a spiritual place. The pursuit of Israel in terms of a physical place will end in bloodshed and war. It's wrong.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

The question begs why arnt people taking to the streets to stop the syrian regime who is killing many more people than Israel. The answer lies in the fact that lots of people harbor anti jewish feelings. It is hypocritical at best what the world does in protesting in mass against Israel but nearly no protests in Paris or London for Syria. Muslims need to do their house cleaning. Why arnt our peacefull Mulsim brothers protesting the expulsion of Christians right now in Iraq or Egypt? If you believe what you say about being a religion of peace prove it

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

There is a pretty simple solution it seems, Hamas stops lobbing missiles into Israel, Israel backs off and leaves them alone... It was Hamas, not Israel, who rejected Egypt's cease fire proposal.

The people of Gaza need to make it clear they will not tolerate Hamas using them as weapons shields.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

I am ashamed of myself , sitting here and cant do anything for Palestinians people . If a single person die anywhere , in any part of world , we take that news to media and make sure the killer get punished.And here Israeli's are daily killing hundreds , also in literal form by not giving them food , medicines etc and media is sooo quiet like they are not humans. Sorry but this is not Justice .

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

"The Israeli goverment is good (as governments go), and Hamas is bad (absolutely). It's very plain."

If you really think it is that plain than you really are the beyond-help-idiot I was thinking you to be. And if you think that murdering women and children civilians is acceptable (which you clearly do), you are as evil as you believe Hamas to be.

Your rant above is so deluded and all over the place that I would just ask anyone with any sense of decency to read your dreck and tell me that you're not the sickest most delusional azzwipe currently on the CL comments board. Go ahead readers.

"You may want to discuss the details of the "occupation," as you call it, or debate the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but I'm not interested in that."

I know you're not. Because you're a bigoted piece of garbage who knows nothing about what you say. Why am I not surprised.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

What Hamas is doing is the classic definition of resistance fighting. I wonder how I would act if I lived in a densely populated area short on every supply needed just for basic needs, not to mention the luxuries that Westerners take so much for granted that they think them necessities. I wonder, if my occupier were powerful and had every military and economic advantage, and all I had was my own (hungry and deprived) life, how would I choose to fight back... If I chose that route at all, rather than to just exist, watching the narrow lives and non-existent options available to my hungry children?

I don't condone lobbing small, ineffective rockets into civilian areas. But I think the Palestinian options are extremely limited to fight with every available resource (ie make existence uncomfortable for people in a position to negotiate change) or give up and choose to live with never enough. This assumption I am making for those who truly just want to have enough to eat, some basic comforts, and to provide for their children while offering then real options for a better life.

The death to Israel militants who will stop at nothing short of genocide are, I want to believe, I so desperately a WANT to believe, in a minority.

I don't think there will ever be peace until we, those of us in a position to influence our law-makers, are willing to look beyond the labels and ask ourselves some really tough questions (while educating ourselves along the way). Instead of labeling Palestinians as vicious animal, ask why? Why are they lobbing small rockets at what amounts to an angry giant with the means to squish them under its indifferent feet?
