I've got to the point where I'm tired of hearing about it now. Both sides are idiots, I just feel sorry for the innocent civilians.
It's got to the point that I hope they just nuke each other and let that be the end of it, it's never going to stop. Bloody religion!!!

Where's the international condemnation when a member of Hamas steps on a bus, detonates an explosive and kills a bunch of innocent Israelis? Yassini was a major player in this game. When Rehavam Zeevi was assassinated, do you remember an international condemnation? No? Me neither. And Zeevi was just a tourism minister while Yassini is responsible for the death of children.

So let's just say that by KNOWING what the result will be from the Palestinians, Israel is COMPLICIT in their deaths by assassinating this guy in the first place.
So Israel doesn't care that their own citizens will die as a direct result of their military action.

Hamas: Sharon has opened the gates of hell
Hamas leaders vowed Monday to "cut off" the head of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, after their spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was killed in a missile strike by Israeli helicopter gunships in Gaza City.
"Sharon has opened the gates of hell and nothing will stop us from cutting off his head," leaders of the radical Islamic group vowed.
"Words cannot describe the emotion of anger and hate inside our hearts," said Hamas official Ismail Haniyeh, a close associate of Yassin in Gaza. He said that "the enemy should expect a response that will turn the ground under his feet to hell ... All of Palestine will turn into a volcano that will burn up the enemies."
Uh, what do you mean that now Palestinian militants will go bonkers and start killing Israelis any way they can?
When ONE Palestinian wacko kills some Israelis, the response by Israel is COLLECTIVE. Jetfighters, missiles, etc, raining down on neighborhoods and traffic jams.
When Israel responds, they use disproportionate power. Maybe because they're total cowards, maybe because they're lazy, the reason isn't as important as the effect.
