It's also why Israel will use a 'disproportionate response' - they can't afford to lose..

All the history is great but Hamas is still firing rockets. Look at how many countries around the world (including the US) were habited by someone else first before another power came in.

Ok, 50 years. First of all please tell what a "palestinian" is. Its nothing more than egyptians put there to stop the jews from reclaiming the land.

Those firework rockets are being fired in retaliation of a fifty year, forceful Israeli settlement invasion into Palestinian territory.
So what, the Palestinians are to bend over and take it all the time?
Fair enough, you support the Israeli cause but I hope you can see that there are two sides to the story and Israel is the destabilizing influence.
Do you realize that the rockets (which can kill) are hitting innocent civilian areas? They are not hitting military targets. They are not hitting Israeli leaders. THEY ARE HITTING INNOCENT CIVILIAN AREAS.
And you defend this?

Gee, I wonder why the Palestinians fire rockets at Israel. It's makes no sense at all. I mean... what has poor Israel done to deserve it? It's just not fair! Not fair I tell you!

Would you mind updating your maps to show the activity since 2000?? Israel has handed over a lot of land in the interest of peace.

How about you give back all the land to however owned your country before your people came? Every place on Earth changed population gozillion times. So this does not make Israel right, true. And a lot of Palestinians lost their land and property without any compensation. How then it justifies taking land from generations of Israelis who were born here? There is Israel and there will be Israel. You do not like? Well - it is your problem,deal with it.
israel should be attacking egypt because if they are egyptian than that means egypt is shooting missles into israel
The agreement also resulted in the United States committing to several billion dollars worth of annual subsidies to the governments of both Israel and Egypt, subsidies which continue to this day, and are given as a mixture of grants and aid packages committed to purchasing U.S. materiel. From 1979 (the year of the peace agreement) to 1997, Egypt received military aid of US$1.3 billion annually, which also helped modernize the Egyptian military. (This is beyond economic, humanitarian, and other aid, which has totaled more than US$25 billion.) Eastern-supplied until 1979, Egypt now received American weaponry such as the M1A1 Abrams Tank, AH-64 Apache gunship and the F-16 fighter jet. In comparison, Israel has received $3 billion annually since 1985 in grants and military aid packages.

In fairness, It would be a bit of a one sided fight.
Yep. But so what? That would teach the smaller guy not to pick fights with someone who is bigger and stronger. Darwinism at it's best.
