I want to make a comment on the video you had posted.. Those children are being brainwashed, and that is so easy to see. That clip made me extremely sad, because I wouldn't know if those kids were Jewish if I ran into them on the street.
I will say why. A friend of mine told me that what the Israelis have done by not allowing many items from being directly imported into Gaza is to create a black-market for such goods, of which the Israelis control. The people in Gaza have to pay an exorbitant amount for everyday items that we and the Israelis take for granted. By creating a black market, certain Israelis make incredible profits; much the same way corrupt prison guards who smuggle in illegal items into prison. To me, after researching this, I do not see the difference between the Gaza Strip and the Warsaw ghetto. This is insanity, and the sooner we stop giving foreign aid to ALL countries, the better.

Give them statehood, and they still attack, then Israel declares war, completely demolishes Gaza and takes the land for itself no questions asked.
You seem to think Israel is so weak and vulnerable, their military and equipment speak otherwise.
Anyways, why should they accept a jewish state when Israel won't even accept these peoples rights as human beings? This can only benefit Israel.
Statehood happens, they still attack Israel, the whole world undoubtedly sides with Israel because they tried to do the right thing.

Can you address this simple question: Not a single Arab party to date has acknowledge the right of existence to a Jewish state. What does this imply about the feasiblity of "peace negotations?
Secondly. Its patently clear that the majority of you are in spirit (though with incredible naivete) with Palestine. Your emotions gear your mind to justify what the Palestinians want.
The more you untwist the knots, the more it becomes clear who is being perennially taken advantage of: The Jews. THIS IS THE ONLY TRUTH WHETHER YOURE LITTLE HEAD CAN UNDERSTAND IT OR NOT.
Are you 6 years old? Israel is SURROUNDED BY ARAB AND ISLAMIC ENEMIES. What the hell makes you think Israel wants to occupy the westbank for any other reason then to insure its security? Foolish! Israel has enemies hundreds of tmes its size surrounding her, and you idiotically think THEY have the power. THat they can just do what she pleases?
B)When the threat of America attacking you (again) for making an attack on Israel is a real thing, it becomes pretty obvious who is in control. It's like having a huge friend that you send to collect the lunch money from other kids on the playground.
So you have an answer for everything....
First. If the Arabs dont accept a Jewish states, its meaningless for Israel to accept a Palestinian state. That state will b used t destroy Israel. Case closed.
Second. Did US come to Israels aid in 1948?? No.. they didnt. Infact, Harry Trman put an embargo on Arms trades just before the war, preventing he Jewish Agency from acquiring much needed artilary for the war.
The sheer fact that Israel was able to defeat 6 arab armies, despite being ill prepared and equipped is miraculous
Did America come to Israels aid in '67? '73? Which war are you talking about.
At the very most, america has provided israel with military and economic financial aid. Not soldiers.
I would bet my life that America will in soon time abandon Israel as an ally.
