They launch and store rockets and munitions all over, not just in the fields. They were using a school as a storage site, then cried about it getting blown up.

hehe well atleast we can agree there, cause imo one side will have to lose there war or else this will go on for another couple thousands years. For some reason though the US govt likes to keep its finger in there business and we help perpetuate this ongoing war

More spending. Nearly a billion dollars to help a country rebuild from a war (battle? campaign?) that we weren't even involved in. This is ridiculous.

You mean the fields where Hamas was storing and firing rockets from? I don't buy the 50% destruction of agriculture propaganda.

DO you have a source???

Good stuff guys. I agree with a lot of the views offered (you guys lost me for a minute at the 'rockets hidden on farms' discussion... WTF?)

I see it like; fact is Palestine is a pain in the ass. But Israel brings a nuke to knife fight and shows absolutely no restraint, and very little moral/ethical standards. According to what we understand as citizens of earth, Hamas is nutso-facto. They're no good. We're just going to throw this much cash at Gaza and "honestly" believe that none is going to fall into the wrong hands? We have obviously failed writing our own stimulus (spendulus giganticus) and we "honestly" expect to succeed in writing up their program correctly, and then making sure it is executed properly?

It sounds foolish, and like I said: Something stinks.

The US is only giving 300 million to Gaza

A tiny fraction of what they've bombed to oblivion.

These in Gaza don't have clean water, they don't have proper nutrition, their workforce is not getting paid as far as I know, the US and Israel has turned Gaza into an wasteland, those made homeless are living in a flood/storm washout situation in rudimentary army tents.

They were punished for voting for Hamas in a free election, a choice the Israeli Government did not approve for. The Palestinian authority is getting 600 million dollars, and they are the most corrupt of either Hamas or the PA.

The Gazans hated the corruption of the Pro-Israel Palestian Authority and chose Hamas to govern their tiny strip. Hamas did a good job considering the Israeli-imposed supply embargo.

All the Israelis are doing is taking over the Palestinians' land and attacking them if they oppose the building of the Israeli settlements.

All the Zionists are saying is 'There Will Be No Peace until The Palestinians Love Their Children' or 'why are they are not breeding like rabbits to 'win the war through social demographics, instead of launching rockets into Israel' or some other silly saying.

This is why Hamas launched rockets into Israel, they had no other way to fight. The MSM would not listen to their pleas.

Gaza belongs to Gazans and they choose Hamas to lead them, why can't the world accept that?

The Gazans are just being punished, punished, punished, and the world isn't helping them.

Do you? I didn't come up with the 50% figure. I'm sure if the IDF destroyed any fields it was for a good reason, as they wouldn't waste resources otherwise. Lookup Pallywood on YouTube if you want to see how Palestinian propaganda films are made.

If you are American, or even English, your countries helped Israel fund and organize its war machine.

Like a poster in this thread said, someone gave Israel an nuke to use in a knife fight.

Really sucks to bomb a country using millions of dollars then paying more millions to repair the damage.

We have some real big turds in power.

According to the World Food Programme, the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation and Palestinian officials, between 35% and 60% of the agriculture industry has been wrecked by the three-week Israeli attack, which followed two years of economic siege.

This being the same group who managed the oil-for-food program? Yeah, I trust them and their statistics. If Palestinian officials say so, it must be true.

u could also say that russia has its hand in the attacks from gaza since they use primarily russian weapons, but i understand what your saying cause the US has always had its dirty little finger in the middle east for whatever reason, but so has russia. the US did turn a blind eye to isreals nuclear production back in the 70's and ive never quite figured that one out but in anycase the isreali's should be paying to rebuild gaza and if your saying that the US funds isreal well then isnt the US just going to be footing the bill for them then?

i could possibly see sending them food and clean water if they stoped rocket attacks, but that will never happen and if it did they would resume attacks after recieving aid...these arent exactly the most peacful people on earth

They voted Hamas in and overwhelmingly support them and their actions. The blame is on the people.
