What has to be accepted though is that groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah are products of the historical oppression and interference by outside influences. Without Israeli agression and western interference these groups would NOT exist, there would be no reason for them to exist.
Whenever people are oppressed you will eventually find groups organising to counter the oppressors or invaders. The more severe the oppression, the more hardline the response will be. To point out the wrongs of Hamas or Hezbollah without first addressing their grievances is shortsighted and unreasonable. I favour neither side when it comes to killing but when looking at the historical evidence of what has happened in Israel / Palestine, these people now under the hammer have been greatly wronged and have no voice.

I'm still incredulous at the degrees of willful evil AND the degrees of willful blindness afflicting such huge percentages of the population.
