If winning land by war is 'fair and square', then Israel can declare war on Gaza and then drop a nuke on it and will actually have the right to the land?
Not seeing that as a valid point at all sorry.
This is the point; Israel are not barbarians, otherwise they would have kept the land they advanced over back in the 'Six Day War'. They returned it instead.
The only thing that separates Israel from any Western country is their location, unique in the way that they are surrounded by their enemies.
They have to act with a heavy hand or they show weakness and therefore usher in their demise.
I would wager any sum of money that if Israel stopped retaliation from tomorrow, then within the next 5 years, neighbouring Arab countries would invade and claim the land for their own.
The MSM focus on the siege of Gaza by Israel, the bigger picture of Israel being under siege by it's neighbouring countries is not mentioned.
If you lived in a mid-state of the USA and the states surrounding you occasionally shot rockets at civilians in your state. How would you react?
When you originally claimed that mid-state, the unwanted refugees, displaced from the other surrounding states co-habited your mid-state and after decades of in-fighting, you cordon off the most troublesome to the southern tip of your state, the other refugees accept life in the northern part of your state and prosper.
The rebellious element of the unwanted refugees in the south continue to provoke you, whilst the states around you smuggle weapons in to support the rebellion. This southern part of your state broadcasts propoganda and brain washes future generations with nothing but hatred and the glory of martydom.
Meanwhile, the state on your Northern border starts shooting rockets at your civilians aswell. One of the most powerful Eastern states vows to wipe you off the map and continues to train the soldiers of the surrounding states and builds more weapons to support them.
80% of the main stream media watching world, condemn the outrage of you holding the troublesome refugees in the South hostage and rally together to send a flight of cargo planes every few months to air drop supplies to the rebels in the South.
When you intercept and stop them over no-man's land/ neighbouring state, there is an outrage yet again at your audacity... yet you still pass on most of the supplies to the rebellion.

I have always found that odd... 99% of ATS members despise the reporting of the MSM in most cases and see it as being biased or having an agenda, yet when it concerns these refugees in Gaza, the MSM is used directly to support thier argument against Israel. Food for thought?
Well Obviously the child is Fearing for his Life ! Does that Look like a a Suicide Bomber Child
If This Child was he would be Fearless and Smiling and Running to the Back pack Pressing the Button
Its Like Israel is Repaving the Way to the 4th Reich They are Doing Exactly what Nazi Germany has Done to them, Ironically Say what you want
To ME Hitler and his Socialist Party opened Up the Old Talmud about in the Section that tells about the Treatment of Gentiles as 2nd class citizens and The Nazi's Used The Book (Talmud) Against the Jews .. That how I See it .. If the Truth was known this is My Guess of what happened
Is Israel Doing doing the Same thing what was Originally Intended from that Book that is called the Talmud ?

I seriously can't imagine what is going through the minds of these poor children that have to deal with this every day in their own homeland at the hands of the "settlers" (invaders).
Picture this happening in YOUR neighborhood. Now tell me honestly that you support the actions of Isreal.edit on 6/28/2011 by YourPopRock because: because I forgot to get down on Friday
