Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

@ humanityandabitofrock
Please tell us about Hamas' logic, other than their religious zeal to kill Israelis. And, while you're at it, tell us about their logic of hiding weapons in UN schools and using women and children as shields.
Then tell us of the moral virtues on Hamas' logic.
And then tell us of the PLO's logic and moral virtues.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

Instead of focusing who's right and who's wrong, perhaps we should all try to end the damn war. Every coin has two sides. Likewise, every war has two sides, and they both will naturally have logical explanations for why they're bombing. But at the end of the day, both sides are at fault. KILLING PEOPLE IS WRONG. Whether you're PALESTINIAN or ISRAELI, if you kill others for your own safety, I can safely say you're a killer and you shouldn't resort to violence to save yourself. We're not animals! We're humans who have the intellectual ability to end conflict through non-violence. And FYI, I support humanity.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

Andish,

Can you share with us what it going on in Northen Iraq? Maybe share some unbiased analysis for systematically killing and torturing woman and children?

Could it be wise to take the offensive when you are surrounded by people who vow to exterminate you?

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

I'll just say this now! To all those people who think we don't read our book(the Quran) it takes time for some people! Look at all of you people! Going out and partying, getting laid!(no offense to anyone and to those who don't) At least we have the decency to cover up and only open up and not be fully cover in front of our family because they are our families! We don't go off having boyfriends and girlfriends! We wait for the person we are going to get married to and have all of our firsts with them! In the bibles and all and way back all the girls were covered but now there is like 100 copies of the book and everyone is changing the rules!

People should be disgusted with what they have become of! All I want and I'm sure others want is peace! But everyone is making that difficult! Allah(god) brang all of us here to worship him, not start all these wars! Everyone should just stop and think! How was this earth made? How are we here? Who is god? Our maker? Allah. That's all I can say for now. This world is a test, Allah is testing us! When it's the end of the world it going to be decision making time. People are going to be sent to hell, people sent to heaven! But in order to do that you all just have to do good! Stop doing bad!

Whenever you take sides with the bad and defend them, you get bad deeds as well! All of us, everyone on this earth, in this universe could do good, but you have to make yourself! Start fighting those bad urges to do bad things! Inshallah everyone chooses the right path and May Allah help you and guide you! (Sorry if I said some offensive things)

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

It happened again. He said the missing soldier was kidnapped by Hamas but now he is saying another thing after achieving his mission of killing more innocent civilians in Gaza. This is a senseless act. I told u but u dont want to believe me bcos i am saying the truth. This man called Prime Minister of Israel is a terrorist. He is worst than Hamas. He is a blood sucker. May be he is even a VAMPIRE, who knows.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

The world should just boycott Israel and Gaza imports and exports and then they can learn to suffer together and maybe they will form alliances and peace agreements in order for survival. This shit has to stop it is very Neolithic behavior and frankly pathetic that two regions so close together have to be at each others throats over the sweaters on their backs. We should just take away there toys if they can't get along. We could do it real quickly too. If the UN doesn't get on board soon we should handle it ourselves.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

Intended to say, " The funding of nazi movements around the world to quash human rights is nothing new." In 2nd to last paragraph.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

Hamas has a charter calling for the genocide of Jews, which is not surprising given that it (and fatah) are direct offshoots of the Husseini-Eichmann genocide movement. Husseini was the nazi muti (appointed by the British just as all Islamic leaders are appointed by the Western imperialists) who convinced Hitler to slaughter all the Jews of Europe.

In 1948, the British were sabotaging partition, helping the Arabs kill Jews, and importing German and Bosnian nazis to assist the Arabs.

So while Andisheh prefers a nice, US government issued, revisionist history--I tell it like it is, the 'lies my teacher told me' reality.

Yes, the US government does give Israel money that then comes directly back to the US in exchange for weapons and US treasuries.

Why does Israel need the weapons? Because the US (first and foremost) and the EU fund and prop hamas and fatah via funding of the UNRWA. This is our government's (not so) covert policy--funding clerical fascism to better eradicate womens/civil/workers' rights, ensuring division between Arabs and Jews.

Not surprisingly, US media lies for US policy, and portrays US policy as really 'kewl'. Thus we have Andisheh serving as a submitted and loyal shill for US policy, sticking up for the poor tormented quislings of hamas, the (phony) 'grass roots' movement funded and propped by Western ruling elites. The funding of nazi movements around the world to human rights is nothing new. The government has been engaging in this 'captive nation' program since the 1950s.

The death of civilians is unfortunate--but the only logical outrage can lie with the clerical fascists, the sharia inflictors and baby-shield users, of hamas and the politicians that fund hamas. It is only rational that the IDF would protect Israelis. And the US bombs other countries killing hundreds of thousands, so I don't think Andisheh is in any position to gripe about Israel until he first tells the truth about US policy.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

In my own opinion Israeli PM is a terrorist. He is worst than even the Hamas. He is a coward person who does not wort to be a leader. How can u be killing civilians and u are claming that it is self-defence. This is a senseless and evil acts with the aim of causing confusion among Palestinians and Israeli Arab. I am neither from Palestine nor frm Israel. But this is the TRUTH

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

This is ridiculous. Just because of the actions of a few, one country decides to slaughter innocent civilians without judgement. And then the other side decides to do the same in retaliation.

The human race is ridiculously immature. I will never understand this kind of behaviour.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

I was curious as to why Gaza was sending rockets towards Israel so I googled it. I really don't see that on the news stations. Just wanted some un-biased facts. This article was at the top of my search. I was hoping for a non-political & un-biased description and this is not it. I did learn something..thank you for that...but I had to read between the lines on the obvious liberal slant that this author has. Is there any place that a normal person can seek information on the internet or news stations that is not biased anymore?

"Read the entire reports as I did and you will find (not using the qualifier "likely") that the correspondents saw and heard the Hamas rockets. That is fact, not propaganda. The fact is that Hamas broke the cease-fire."

Sure thing, link me the source for these "entire reports" of Hamas rockets being seen and heard while Israel was observing a cease fire and I'll take take a look.
I look forward to seeing that you send over.

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.
