RE: Hamas launches new website

Sadly, in the Middle East there is no right or wrong anymore. Its about a percieved victory which will make both sides sacrifice everything to gain control.

A suicide bomber isnt right.
but blowing up civilian Palestinian targets isnt right either.

but like I said, right or wrong doesnt matter anymore.

Well, two wrong's is not right. What is right is a Palestinian should be able to live in Palestine in full dignity, have the right to travel all over his country and enjoy freedom on his homeland. I don't know why a Pole, a Dutch, an Ethiopian, an Iranian, etc would want to leave their respective homelands to implant an alien entity in the heart of the Arab world (or any part of the world for that matter). At least, they should expect some resistance and not cry about it all the time. They started the whole problem.


What do you suggest? Palestinians wait till they're annihilated by the the Israeli army ? These people don't have weapons to defend themselves, let alone liberate their occupied land, but blowing themselves up. Freedom isn't easy nor it is cheap when you don't have it.

Unlike the result of air striking a densely-populated residential area in Gaza (where taking the lives of many minor citizens is a natural result), blowing a bus will mainly cause casualties among soldiers and, as you know, Israel is highly-militarised society where almost everyone is a soldier or a soldier on leave.

^^^ what she said... and if the disparity weren't so extreme, if it were anything like a fair fight, then maybe, just maybe, we could wash our hands of it with a clear conscience, and maybe, just maybe, the dispute would be resolved, since one side wouldn't see such a clear advantage to continually pummeling the other.

Only one side in this dispute enjoys the unfettered use of F-16 Fighter-Bombers, M-1 Abrams tanks, Cruise missiles, everything up to and including nuclear warheads should they so desire. But of course, these munitions aren't just needed to keep the Palestinians down. Else why does Israel need air-to-air refueling capabilities for its F-15s and F-16s, which have a range of 2,765 miles and 1,300 miles, respectively?

Well, you should probably direct that remark at the Bedouins, who seem to consider the "Palestinians" second class citizens. BTW, Palestine is now called Jordan, in case you haven't heard.

RE: Hamas launches new website

Palestine has been the name of the region between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean sea for thousands of years. It hasn't vanished (despite some peoples' efforts) and it hasn't moved.

Trans-Jordan (the area across the Jordan River) is now simply called Jordan. Jordan used to administer part of Palestine (the "West Bank") but relinquished claim to it after eleven years of Israeli occupation, expressing the hope that it might one day be part of a self-administered Palestinian state.

Here is an example of your Israel Soldiers.

SCHOOL BUS, KFAR
DAROM

A roadside bomb exploded at 7:30 in the morning on November 20 alongside a bus carrying children from Kfar Darom to school in Gush Katif. Two adults accompanying the children were killed and 9 others, including 5 children, were injured, 5 of them seriously.
Among those seriously injured are three children of the Cohen family:
12-year-old Orit, whose right foot was amputated, her 7-year-old brother Yisrael whose right leg was amputated below the knee, and their 8-year-old sister, Tehila, who lost both legs despite doctors' efforts to save them. They were visited by President Moshe Katsav.

RE: Hamas launches new website

Anecdotes (and photos) can be traded back and forth forever.

It accomplishes nothing, unless maybe it makes you feel better.
