I really try to stay out of these "discussions" because they don't tend to do anything except inflame and each "viewpoint" is dead set and very
resistant to see both sides of the issue.
As has been stated earlier in this thread, Isreal has done some pretty amazing things as far as giving the Palastinians an opportunity to become a
nation. (When I say giving, I'm referencing the "giving up land for peace" deal and even coming to the table to talk with the elected Hamas
But let's be real, the phrase "give 'em an inch, they'll take a mile" has never been more true at this moment. I'm quite dismayed to watch
what's transpiring. PA finally has an oportunity to become legitimate, and what happens? They continue to launch rockets into Isreal on a
daily basis, continually launch incursions into Isreali land, boast about having chemical and bio weapons and their willingness to use them and
basically continue to do everything possible to ensure their failure as a recognized nation of the world. Sad to see such a wasted opportunity.
IMO, Isreal has every right to defend their country and people from a terrorist lead political faction. You can bet your sweet a** that if it was any
other country in the world besides Isreal defending itself, there would be support for it.
Anyway, it's a sad, sad situation that could/should be resolved if those in power put human life before political and religeous beliefs.
