I have to agree somewhat. If this were happening to America we would not sit idly as rockets come down. We would occupy Gaza and move the people or
sned them to another country.
What people don't understand is thousands upon thousands of rockets have rained down on Israel since 2001 and a lot of it is funded by terrorist
elements and anti-US regimes like Iran.
I say again, if this were happening in America we could not fault Israel. It's only because ignorance and being removed from it that people think
Israel as at fault. It's a mistake to think that.
I want to remnid people that Gaza is TINY. It's something like 15x20 miles of land. This is not a country we're talking about. It's smaller than most
US counties. Heck, even Israel is!
If the UN cared they would send in a peacekeeping force to occupy Gaza. The fact that they have no done this proves to me that their interests are not
with Israel at the present time.
Let me also remind people that it was the UN and Britain that worked to allocate who got what where Palestine used to be. They're the ones that're to
blame for all this conflict in a lot of ways. Jews moved from all over the world to Israel and established this nation with the Jews already living
there and are simply defending themselves as a people. How can we blame them? They're not the ones that created this situation, they're like bits of
wood in a stream following its current. The UN officially recognized Israel in 1949 and what happened afterwards is clockwork.
And don't forget that Canaan, where Israel and Jordan and Lebanon sit, is a region that has a history of war. It has been taken by different nations
through the ages and this continues today. Jews and arabs have lived there for a long long time. Jews have been there the longest probably, although
I'm not sure they've always had a majority. I think 60-some% of Palestine was arab in the 1920's.
