I was surprised at some of the weapons used on these protesters, especially the white phosphorus chemical weapons still being used.

Israel has outed Al Jazeera, earlier this year, due to their continued open coverage. Note that what usually is shown live on Al Jazeera TV is unedited unlike the msm.

"This huge settlement will result in 40,000 Jewish settlers living on occupied land here in the West Bank and as Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu is planning to give the go ahead for even more of these settlement homes to be built," she said.

Netanyahu is set to approve plans to build hundreds of new homes on Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank, before considering US demands for a construction freeze.

Look, live and let live is my credo...but for the LIFE of me i cannot get to grips with the Israelis or their mentality.

Wouldn't you have thought, with what happened to their people during WW2, that they would have more understanding of what the Palestinians are going through? And treat them accordingly?

It seems they withdraw a little for a while, then move back in and steal even more land while they think the world isn't paying attention..what the hell is wrong with these people.

I don't get how they can murder innocent men, women and children indicriminatly, and then claim it as some kind of warped self defense!

Yes, they get crude rockets fired at them, and yes i agree that is not a good thing. But the levels of response to these glorified totally disproportionate every time.

It's as if they really do not want peace.

I condemn both Jews and Palestinians for the violence they show to each other on a continual basis. But the Jews are occupying someones country, and have vowed to kill every last would you try to resist if someone invaded your land, and systematically murdered your people?

It's absolute madness.

I don't see it as Jewish vs Palestinians. It appears many try to hide behind the curtain of 'being Jewish' and scream such and such word is a 'code word' for Jew. Every once in awhile that needs to be pointed out.

It's about Israel vs Palestine. Actually, it is more than that on a national basis. There is a lot of political games going on, and many of them mess with people's lives.
