In response to the post above
the hate comes in the form of the ridiculous standards you hold Israel to
You spew Hamas talking points
and have nothing to say when Lebanon or Egypt bombs Palestinian camps

Exactly what I thought. This is way too convenient for Israel. Hamas and Fatah have absolutely nothing to gain from these attacks. Especially with the upcoming declaration of statehood in September.
I bet this attack was performed by an Egyptian group that has been infiltrated by Mossad. Yeah I said it! The people of Palestine have suffered for so long and would be foolish to commit such an act at this exact time.
It's kind of ironic that only Israel benefits from the attacks on Israel.
Normally militants will have claimed responsibility by now. I bet some new fake group we never heard of before claims responsibility. I bet they threaten more attacks too. I also see this spreading further than Israel but also into Syria, Lebanon, maybe even Iran. If you look at the region as a whole, this is the perfect ignition for more war and destruction.
JERUSALEM, Aug 18 (Reuters) - The gunmen who killed at least six people in a series of attacks in southern Israel on Thursday came from the Gaza Strip and travelled through Egypt's Sinai desert to infiltrate into Israel, an Israeli official said. "They left Gaza through the south, went into the desert and came into Israel," the official said, referring to the Sinai peninsula on Gaza's border. Israel has a fortified border with Hamas-ruled Gaza and Palestinians there have at times used the Sinai as a conduit for arms and fighters.

Because it is not possible to criticize Israel without being anti-semitic, apparently.
What does that make the quarter of a million protesting against the Israeli government? According to your reasoning they must be anti-semitic too!
Israeli military reactions are tantamount to a kid bloodying a bullys nose.
The Israeli government has authorised the construction of 277 homes in the West Bank settlement of Ariel, a move that will diminish the prospects for a resumption of peace talks with the Palestinians

Disproportionate? Ok, I propose Israel count how many mortars, rockets, etc... were fired and fire the exact same amount at them. Proportionate enough?

palestinians in gaza...

I am neither anti-Israeli, morally blind or retarded. I understand the need for Israel to
have security and stable borders also. But the situation they have created in gaza is inhumane
and their policy of collective punishment for all because of the actions of the few are clearly
obvious to anyone looking at the situation from the outside. Its morally unjustifiable any way
you look at it. There are two sides to every argument, I sugest you try to understand the
situation from the palestinian viewpoint for once, rather than just entrenching yourself
on one side of the argument.
member of P.L.O. leadership, Zahir Muhsein, the leader of the al-Sa'iqa Organization, revealed the truth in an interview to the Dutch newspaper Trouw:
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.
Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism for tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa.
While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."
