    Sometimes I wonder. If a foreign power were to occupy my country and their citizens would expropriate my family farm which we had owned for generations would I fight back with anything at my disposal? If after 50 years of occupation and economic blockade would my children feel they had no future whatsoever and lash out eventhough they had no chance of winning anything? Just wondering.

    So now when Israel responds they are only allowed to kill one palestinian so the response is proportional, right?

    All loss of life is tragic, and my hearts go out to the families and friends of those senselessly killed by Palestinian extremists.

    But on a less serious note, are Palestinians even trying to win the war anymore of are they purposely fighting as badly as possible? Palestine's loss to kill ration is about 8 to 1 out of their favor, and worse that is with the element of surprise on their side. There's dedication to a cause and then there's throwing yourself into the enemies waiting guns, they've certainly gone well over into the wrong side of that equation.

    They can't win this war, and by attacking innocent bystanders they're making themselves look worse every day (they already looked awful to me, their "tactics" have always disgusted me). Palestine, accept whatever peace deal Israel is offering and focus on making the lives of you and your families better, this plan you're pursuing is going to get you all wiped off the face of the Earth.
