It preys on the weak foundation of knowledge Americans have about the conflict to manipulate an unrealistic contemporary pt of view
I would love to know what your "realistic" point of view is.
Why don't you enlighten us and tell us what this conflict is all about.
The truth is, Hamas started shooting rockets into Israel because Abbas went before the General Assembly to make the Palestinians an "observer" at the
U.N. That vote comes due on November 29th. Once they become an observer, they are one step closer to creating a Palestinian state. The problem is,
once a Palestinian state is created, they'll be forced to recognize Israel as a Jewish state and the extremists (such as Hamas and the leaders of
Iran) won't have it. Not to mention the fact that the extremists are totally against any kinds of NEGOTIATIONS regarding the land. They believe that
land should be taken by resistance and not negotiations.
The real conflict is between the moderate and extremist Muslims, just like it's always been, unfortunately, Israel is caught up in the middle of it.
Do some research.
