See the picture for yourself and decide. How can combatants hide in an open UNRWA school?? UNRWA employees will throw them away. Plus, militants usually work in secrecy because they don't want any traitors to report them and blow the entire cell into pieces. We have many spies/traitors and Israel has been playing this game a long time now. Ever heard of Dahlan and his gang. They get cash rewards for such services.

What most Palestinians see now is resistance gave them something, like the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in 2005 while peace talks gave them nothing, thanks mostly to Israel's lack of interest in peace (for Palestinians, at least).

Palestinian fighters, at least, are ready to die for an independent, sovereign state. As long as Israel keeps throwing crumbs to us as if we were its slaves and wondering why don't accept its generous offers , there will never be peace for the Israelis. Resistance is ready to pay the price.

What do you suggest we do? Welcome Israeli occupation of Gaza?? Wait for the mighty UN to gives us our rights back, despite an always ready US veto?

Israel only understands the language of power. We're having a conversation right now.

Or 61 tons? Wonder what the effect of that in one bomb right in the middle of Gaza City would be? Tim McVeigh took down the Murrah building and killed 160 with only about one ton of fertilizer and diesel oil. Would the whiners be satisfied if Israel could just flatten Gaza City with one bomb and quit? Or maybe it would be OK if Israel dropped a 360 lb bomb everyday for the next year.

Just curious.

What do you know? There was a 6-month truce: Israel to open borders in exchange of Hamas halting rocket attacks. Hamas stopped the attacks but Israel didn't open the borders and on Nov. 4th attacked Gaza with fighter jets. Do you expect Hamas to accept the renewal of such a truce?? Hamas in not another shoe-licking dictatorship that doesn't mind its people as long as its officials pockets are swollen with foreign cash.

I remember the Enterprise and crew were saved from being forced "casualties" when the 2 sides were faced with the horror of real war. Maybe it just hasn't gotten ugly enough for everyone yet.

Palestinians haven't forgotten yet. Israel reminds them on a regular basis.. with air strikes and ground assaults every now and then.

I have stated my solution to this problem before if you care to read it but I will state it again:
Option 1: Integrate the Israelis and Palestinians under ONE nation. It seems to work in South Africa.

I'm for this one. Let's call it Palestine, too.

Option 2: Let the Palestinians have a TRUE state independent of Israel confined within the West Bank and Gaza with NO Jewish settlers inside. Jerusalem should be handed to UN control so NO ONE can claim it or simply make it like the Vatican run by a trio (Rabbi, Priest, Imam).

That's the goal of the peace talks but Israel keeps building new colonies and the Apartheid Wall, stealing more land in the process. What about refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, etc. ??

Option 3: Give back the West Bank to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt and let them deal with the Palestinians. Jerusalem will be part of Israel in that case.

That's what Jordan fears most. There are already more Palestinians in Jordan than Jordanians. This wakes up old fears of an alternative home. Gazans under Hosni Mubarak's dictatorship?? No way. I can see 1.5 million Gazans marching to the presidential palace in Cairo chanting death to the shoe-licking traitor.... But Egyptians will be happy

Option 4: Invade the whole lot and let Israel pick whatever land it deems God gave her then kill the ones that don't agree, have our religious right move there so they can all wait for Jesus to show up.

Given the current circumstances, I don't see this less likely than it is funny. Doesn't Israel want its God given land from the Euphrates to the Nile?? But Jesus is a Muslim.

Which option sounds reasonable to you?

Poverty, especially in Gaza Strip, is crippling. Israeli occupation did its best to keep people alive but with no real life. Most Palestinians with an education left for the West or the Gulf to start a good life.
