The blast in Gaza...

The early evidence looks like the blast in Gaza was NOT caused by the Israelies. However, I believe it is irrelevent who was responsible. Let's be clear here - the Palestinians fire rockets into Israel with the INTENT to kill as many civilians as possible. The Israelies respond - and occasionally civilians get killed. But, when that happens there is typically an Israeli investigation, lots of hand-wringing (did we go too far), and, of course, no shortage of international condemnation.

Could you EVER imagine the Paletinians holding an internal investigation into Israeli deaths? Of course not. They'd be too busy celebrating.

The incident on the beach underscores the difference between the Israelies and the Palestinians. But, it also shows the difference in how the international community looks at the two sides. The Palestinians could fire over 100 rockets from Gaza into Israel over the course of a weekend - but nary a peep from anybody. The Israelies MIGHT have (but possibly not) accidentally killed some Palestinians...and even Kofi Annan is horrified.

Actually, Israel is weak. Their response to continued rocket fire from Gaza has been tepid. Interestingly enough, Hamas has now promised to stop rocket fire - even though they claim they had a ceasefire with Israel. Has the press noticed this seeming contradiction???

I don't think you get it. First they are going to come for the Moslems. (Actually they already started off by coming for the trade unionists.) Next, they will come for the GAYS, after that the JEWS, then the Catholics, then the CANADIANS. It never ceases to amaze me that minorities such as GAYS, JEWS and CATHOLICS are willing to go along with the neo-conservative (neo-Nazi) movement. You do realize that the Nazi's were not dissolved (they went underground). Dick Cheney's company Halliburton is CURRENTLY rebuilding the camps in California. I hope you have fun there - I will do whatever I can to save you - why don't you return the favor.

BTW, how about FLORIDA? It is much nicer than Palestine and Jew friendly. I would be happy to have all the world's Jews here in America considering the fact that ALL land is created by God and therefore all land is the holy land. This isn't an idolatry thing is it?

Terror is the weapon of the weak, be it used by state or non state actors. And you have to admit that is the mentality behind striking back fiercly against the Palestinians... scare them into peace. Make the consequences for defiance and attacks so dire that they do not have the will to continue. To be blunt, to terrorize them into submission. This approach has failed time and again, more times than can be counted, so why is it that people keep howling for it? Ignorant bloodlust. We crave vengeance, regardless the price. What is needed instead is to try something wholly new and different. Worst case scenario it fails... which "eye for an eye" solution will do anyhow.
