When Israel attacks these known terrorist cells, innocent civilians are injured or killed. All the while, Israel is NOT targeting civilians - The civilians were unfortunately caught in the cross fire.

"One thing that Israel does is something we all witnessed as kids in school. There was always that tough little guy that when anyone twice their size slugged them in the shoulder or punched them in the stomach, that little guy caused them two or three times the pain that was inflicted on them. Once that was done, the bully found someone else to pick on or at least thought twice before smacking the little guy again."
I agree with you on the school yard theme, but I have a better analogy for you...
The smallest , weakest and most cowardly ( but quite often bright ) kid gets made class monitor. And turns into a power mad maniac.
Until teacher comes back.
I pray for Israel's sake there is no God.

No offense but that makes you sound like an extremist or fundamentalist, just as the so-called Islamic "terrorists". So, because of your religion, you are willing to look the other way when innocent people are being slaughtered on a massive scale? Isn't that what the members of Al Qaeda supposedly think? Why not just go strap a bomb to your chest and do it yourself? I'm not a Christian and I'm not religious either but I can't imagine god, Jesus, yahweh or allah approving of this. This just may be the problem with religion, or how people perceive religion.
Edited to add: If I could imagine Bin Laden (or your favorite terrorist) posting, your post is what I would imagine him saying, only speaking about Islam, not Christianity.

what if you bought a house moved in and criminals came and dragged you off into captivity, you finally gain freedom and move back to your home only to find someone else is living there sitting in your living room and sleeping on your bed. you would ask tjem to leave and of they didnt you would remove them by force. israel has tried to work with the palestinians and quite frankly they should have run them off long ago, their real home is jordan but jordan wont even take them. fact is thst part of the world hates the fact that there is a jewish state among muslim states and far worse allied with western christians, nukes and technology. to them they are infidels and would like nothing more than to wipe them off the face of the map as quoted ahmidinejad. fact is, God gave israel that land and told them to run off the inhabitants thousands of years ago and they didnt completely obey. God owns the world and all the universe and he gives it to whom he pleases to, and who he gives ot to has the right to be there.

The contradictions of some on here.....!!
Theres no war in Gaza...civilians being slaughtered in their thousands is murder, no matter how much spin you put on it.....
Nice thread airspoon...appreciate your eforts and time spent on this......
If you believe that Hamas has taken the govt. by force and they are not the legal govt. of Palestine then you cannot disagree with the Israeli stance that feeding Hamas with supplies is not really a good idea and how else to stop it?
Palestine receives a lot of aide every year, based on the numbers there is no reason for the palestinians to be in the position they are in
Israel and Palestine may never settle their differences but since they are at war, the rules really are arbitrary. In war We want to kill all of you and not have any of us killed. Both sides work to the same objective.
