Israel wouldnt of gone in, but of course the Palestinians continued firing rockets day in day out. Any other country in the world, if they had one missle fired at them, would be at war, Israel has hundreds of missles fired at them, and they cant do anything? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbhc9ob4MNs&feature;=channel_page

The Arabs screwed themselves over. They screwed the Palestinians over. They went to war with Israel three times and had their asses handed to them all three times. Israel is in a fight for its survival and some one shooting rockets into Israel deserve whats coming to them.

Read the Haj by Leon Uris it will change your mind.

I agree. Any country who has, send bomes upon another country would have to sometimes face that country in a war. Israel wants its people to live in peach and quite and just want some time out from all those wars. Thanks for understanding.

The reason Israel started the blockaide was to prevent the militants from getting weapons and firing them at Israel, Israel didnt start it, the Palestinians started it, their the ones who invaded with the Arabs in the first war and got their a kicked. Israel was much smaller then it is today, but hey, the Arabs cant fight, and lost. Now, whats sad, is the Palestinians can get all the supplys they need, but they only use the tunnles to smuggle weapons in, they have more weapons in Gaza then Mexico. Plus, if I was Israel and this government came into power that was sworn to my destruction, I would build a wall as well.

It's not all Israel's fault, but a big reason Hamas was firing rockets into Israel was that the blockades prevented Palestinians from getting basic supplies like food, fuel, and medicine.

Your right. It is not Israel's fault. It is the Hammasss they started it. What is sad is that the Hamass is making people from his country die because the Hamass doesnt even care about his own people and just is comsentreting on killing Jews.

Side: Israel is awesome!

Can't they just go to any other adjoining country? I mean, if you're in the Gaza Strip, can't you just go to Egypt? Can't their Arab brothers air lift food stuffs to them? Can't they sneak across the border like the Mexicans into the U.S.? ;)

I totally agree with you but the thing is Isreal is keeping a watch on the Palestinians and they are surrounded by barb wire fences. If anyone were to try and escape to egypt the isreali military will be sure to murder them

For the most part i think it is Israel's fault. Now i don't support the rocket fire by hamas and i think that is wrong, but the degree of retaliation by Israel is so out of proportion that i think it is criminal and revenge instead of defense. Israel has done a lot to make of life of those in gaza terrible and has gone to extensive measures to prevent supplies of any form to come into the area. They say it is because they want to stop weapons getting to hamas and certainly weapons are getting to hamas that way but food and other supplies that are not for militeristic means also can only get in that way.

Israel has made gaza a desolate place and yet Israel continues to blame the local population for the situation there. If israel really were interested in peace and defense they would work to help their neighbor instead of put them under siege.

It isnt Israels fault. They self-definted themselfs. They did not have another choise! They told the Hammas to stop but he woundnt! What was there left to do but to finish the war that started in year 2000 9 years ago by the Hammass starting the rockets bomes sending to Israel?! Israel still do give the Hammass foor, gas, water and more good stuff like this EVEN WHEN THEY WERE IN A WAR!!! Yes... That's how NICE Israel is!

I think the whole situation started when Israel was formed following WWII. I think the UN made a huge mistake by doing this. They basically handed the Israelis the land that had already belonged to the Palestinians. The same premise occurred when Europeans fist settled America and took the land that belonged to the Native Americans. That was wrong, bu today, it's not as if they are our enemies- they're just our drunk casino-owning friends! :)

I'm sorry if this offended you in any way. I have nothing against Jewish people, but I have something against the institution of Israel as a nation. The land belonged to Israel before, which can even be found in the Bible. But the Israelites had been gone from the land for so long and the Palestinians took over. I don't think any group of people is entitled to any amount of land- ever. On top of this, if the two groups of people could learn to be more understanding they just might have been able to share the land! Why is it impossible for the Israelites and Palestinians to get along? Put aside your differences for once!

Israel didn't give any of the citizens of Gaza time to gtfo.

Israel is a joke of a country. I mean why would you build a primarily Jewish country, in between several militant Muslim nations. It's not only segregationist, but hypocritical of any event that happened in WW2

Israel didnt build its country there, the UN did. It was a British colony and Britain gave it to the UN which divided the land.

How are they aggressive. They dont even have a military, they only have a defense force, and the only time the Israels ever fired back was when Hamas or Hezbollah fired first. If someone started shooting at you, and you fired back and killed him due, would you be labeled the aggressor? No, it would be self defense.

It's really too bad you never do your homework instead of making enemies! That BRITISH COLONY you speak of was TAKEN from the Palestinians by the Brits and given to create Israel after WW II. It rightfully belonged to the Palestinians and not the British!

Oh my god! I cannot believe you just said that "Israel is a joke of a country" I mean that is one of the stupidest (sorry yeah) things i have ever heard in my life! Sorry but gotta say the truth! Israel didnt choose where its land is!! It was written the in bible and then we got it and now Arabs\some Muslims are trying to freaking to take it away from us! It is Israel's land Israel counlture and religion that NO ONE NO ON WILL EVER TAKE AWAY! And about that "why would you build a primarily Jewish country, in between several militant Muslim nations." Well..... Because... IF SOMEONE TRIED TO TAKE IT AWAY WILL WILL FIGHIT THE SHIT OUT OF THAT COUNTRY UNTIL THEY WILL LET US GO! We are in peace with some Arab\Musilim countries. Which just proves that Jews and Musilim CAN live in peace!

"It was written the in bible and then we got it and now Arabs\some Muslims are trying to freaking to take it away from us"

First of all just because you like to read a book that says you should own a piece of land doesn't mean you deserve it. I can write a book that says I am entitled to own North America, but that is simply asinine.

And if you honestly think that "Arabs/some Muslims" are trying to take Israel's land, you have absolutely no knowledge of modern Middle Eastern history. Why don't you take a good hard look at a map of the original partitioning agreement and the current map and try to notice the difference? (Hint: Israel's territory has expanded far beyond the original boundaries)

"NO ONE NO ON WILL EVER TAKE AWAY!" "IF SOMEONE TRIED TO TAKE IT AWAY WILL WILL FIGHIT THE SHIT OUT OF THAT COUNTRY UNTIL THEY WILL LET US GO!"

This is the kind of nationalistic fervor that leads to war. Either you believe that whoever has power should get whatever they want, or you're a massive hypocrite. Because Israel has taken much of the Palestinian peoples land.

"Israel didn't give any of the citizens of Gaza time to gtfo"- How can you say that?! Israel send papers coming out of the airplain to people in Gaza saying to get out of there cause they will most likely get hurt. But nobody went out of Gaza meaning they could have but didnt.
