Gaza is like a caged animal. When you abuse it and it bites back, it is decried as a vicious animal that must be destroyed. Israel does not want an independent Palestinian nation who will demand its fair share of water, land and freedom. So, Israel's colonialists keep poking it with a stick and condemning its "radicalism." As opposed to Iran, most Palestinians just want a home and nation that is not being exploited by Israel.

No surprise here, you can't reason with terrorists.

@3grandslams: "No surprise here, you can't reason with terrorists."

How do you define a terrorist? Israel seems to be terrorizing Palestinians. How come they aren't terrorists? Is it because they do it while wearing uniforms? If Hamas gave the guys shooting rockets little wristbands with the Hamas logo on it, would that count as a uniform and then they wouldn't be terrorists anymore?

Israel has the right to arm itself. Gaza has the right to arm itself. Israel has the right to respond when rockets are fired into their territory. Gaza has the right to respond when a crushing naval blockade is imposed upon them.

Each year the Palestinians' technology is increasing. Israel's is staying the same. Israel should make peace while they are still ahead.

If only.

Palestinians could have that any day, if that's what they really wanted.

What they really want is Israel. Without Israelis.

Until they love their children more than they hate Jews, they will never permit peace.

Looks like they're reloading, getting ready for more war games.
