What you dont see is what is well known internationally. A "peacefire" and what it means to both....it means israel gets to live normal and comparatively peacefully. In the meantime, what does peacefire mean to palestinians? It means they get to live with their food, electricity, and medicine cut off by the israeli's, it means they get to continue life under israeli occupation, with checkpoints manned by armed israeli's, with nothing resembling free will or self determination. Israel has regularly been condemned by the UN for atrocities against palestine, and why is that? Are the UN just anti-semites and pro muslim? Many of Israel's OWN public speakers say that the treatment of palestine reminds them of the german ghetto's and concentration camps.
The number of Palestinians killed by the Israel Defense Forces in 2007 decreased by 43 percent since last year, to 373, but the total number of Palestinians killed this year reached a record high because of the 344 Palestinians killed in the internecine conflict, the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem said in its year-end report.
The whole thing sickens me.
I would like to see what the US would have done if Mexico was controlled by extremists who shot 80 rockets a day into LA.
Again the stupidest comparison I ever hear on ATS. Luckily for America, Canada and Mexico are not Muslim fanatics.
And as for America standing by its agreements im sure the Iraqis and Iranians and most other Muslim countries would disagree, therefore they burn the American flag in every protest.
Wake up! Israel is fighting the same battle that the US is fighting; The only difference is that Israel is in the front line.
Sorry Prof, The US has allowed Mexico citizens in by turning a blind eye. The government has known since 1986, the last amnesty, that illegals were in our country and chose to tolerate it because it was good for business. Once 9/11 happened and people started questioning how the hijackers got in is when politicians started talking harsh about sealing the border and how bad illegal immigration was. Funny thing is that most , if not all, of those hijackers entered legally. Go figure. Guess it was to take the pressure off the government. If Mexico was launching missiles at us, we would squash them and take their land. By the way, where did you get 30 million from?
The new report, "The Illegal Population Explosion: A Realistic Appraisal of its Actual Size, Implications for the Future, and Consequences for Public Policy Decisions and Citizen Activism," was released at a News Conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Four experts who contributed to the 45-page study explained their findings that illegal aliens in the U.S. total at least 20 million, but perhaps as many as 38 million or more
Isn't the US always trying to dictate to Mexico and Columbia how they should run their war on drugs?
Of course it is probably so the CIA can smuggle theirs in scott free, but they do try to dictate.

Well, the US and Mexico has allowed millions of illegals into the US. Among them are 100k of gang members that are responsible for hundreds of US deaths annually.
So, next time you make an argument like this get your facts straight ahead of time.
