Allow me to explain my viewpoint more fully. It's really quite simple.
In all my years of watching news, history, and international events, I have never, ever seen more of a situation where the proverbial "ball" is in
one court. The Palestinians have everything to gain by ditching Hamas, shutting down the rocket attacks, and dropping the whole "death to Israel"
Again, I must repeat. Israel left Gaza. They left. Why? They didn't have to do that. They could have occupied it with settlements until the end of
time. Israel would've been willing to provide aid, for crying out loud, if the Palestinians were interested in building schools and hospitals and
things like that.
The Palestinians, all of them, are responsible for this situation. They elected Hamas, who's stated goal is the destruction of Israel.
This is in their charter.
So there it is. Further more, this condition is only complicated by the misguided and, in my opinion, insane efforts of so called "humanitarian"
groups who are clearly aiding efforts to kill Israelis. In doing so, they are siding most of the Arab world who's primary goal is to kill jews. It
doesn't matter which Palestinian is a militant or not. Providing aid only prolongs the war.
Oh, I'm sure the left-wing "humanitarians" like this moron ex-marine on the ship feel very self-rightious in trying to break the blockade. I'm
sure he feels he's solidly on the side of tolerance and multi-culturalism. Guess what? I've got a news flash for everyone. Those tolerance,
multi-culturalism, and ethnic understanding are Western concepts. They do not exist in Palestine. They do not exist in the Middle East. In the Middle
East, they stone women to death for flirting with a man. In the Middle East, they turn abandoned Israeli mosques into latrines. In the Middle East,
they board buses full of Israeli schoolchildren and detonate their suicide vests, sending nails and screws and bb's into the brains and skulls and
stomachs of the children. This is what the Palestinians do. In the Middle East, they murder infidels.
Anyone who sides with them is, by definition, supporting murder.
Why do I hold this opinion? Because my country was attacked by the very same Muslims who want to destroy Israel. Three thousand of my fellow citizens
burned to death because of this stupid fight in the middle east. I hate this conflict, and I want it to end. I welcome the Israelis to come to my
country and start a new life if they want to. If not, I fully support their efforts to win this war, destroy Hamas, and secure their borders.
