Well i hope the "Kippah Dome" or Iron Dome works. It would be even better if everyone stopped firing rockets at one another! Just a

Seriously how hard it is to get along with others... Theses people need to grow the hell up there's no reason for war.
There are a lot of reasons for war. Not as many as our politicians would like for us to believe, but even the U.N. recognizes the concept of "just
war", as does international law. We can argue for a long, long time about whether the Israel / Hamas conflict *is* a "just war", but the fact that
you refuse to acknowledge that war is sometimes (rarely, but sometimes) an acceptable, even unavoidable, course of action shows that you're working
from a false premise. As any logic student will tell you, any argument based on a false premise will be a false argument.
That small rant aside, it can be very hard to get along with others, particularly when your neighbors have "death to you" written right into the
lease on their condo. Regardless of which side *started* this mess, the fact is that, having started neither the Six Day War or the Yom Kippur war
(but winning both), Israel has already bartered away the entire Sinai peninsula in attempt to settle their borders. They've offered to share
territory (not, perhaps, as much as Hamas would like, but the offers have been made). Isn't it time for Hamas to offer *something* in return other
than rocket fire? That's how "negotiation" works, but Hamas is determined to have all of their cake, or none. As long as they have that attitude,
they're going to be very hard to get along with.
No, I'm not proclaiming the Israelis as a whole civilization of yarmulke-wearing saints...their military has huge issues with command and control,
and a cowboy attitude that's down-right dangerous. What I *am* saying is that, in the immortal words of a certain Klingon general, "Peace is only
possible when both sides desire it". Until Hamas decides that they want peace, there *will* be a war. Full stop.
