Like the civilians killed by terrorist attacks in Israel over the past 60 years?
Maybe Israel realized that continuing to deal with the other side was never going to work?
Did the IRA have as part of its mission the desire to wipe out everyone in England?
Was it being funded by nations with deep pockets and the fundamental desire to wipe out England? No?
Then don't make faulty comparisons.
Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Education and Higher Education, Dr. Nasseruddin Al-Shaer
Dr. Omar Abdul-Razeq Minister of Finance
Samir Abu Eisheh Minister of Planning
Issa Al-Jabari Minister of Local Government
Fakhri Al-Turkuman - Minister of Social Affairs
Mohammad Al-Barghouthi Minister of Labor
Nasser Abdul-Jawad Minister of Prisoners Affairs
Nayef Al-Rjoub Minister of Religious Affairs (Awqaf)
Engineer Khaled Abu Arafah Minister of Jerusalem Affairs
etc have all been kidnapped and detained without trial by Israelli forces prior to hamas and hizbullah kidpapping soldiers.
Lets do a body count over the last few years, shall we?http://journalism.berkeley.edu/proje...-casualty.html
Israelli civilians killed: 319
Palestininans, in the west bank: 1,538
Seems a little uneven, doesn't it?
So instead of dealing with 'other side's fairly elected government, they've decided to stomp them to death? I guess we should all follow that methodology and stomp to death anyone whom you have a conflict with.
And as explained before, this tactic will simply create more terrorists in the long run making things worse for the average israelli.
The US funds Israel to the tune of 3 BILLION dollars a year, on average. A third of that goes directly to it military. So every american can look at the carnage of dead Lebanese children and proudly say 'my tax dollars at work'!
As I've said before, there are no clean hands in that region.
You can always tell when Tame is owned when he goes after the poster instead of the subject at hand. What, doesn't Rush Limbaugh have an answer for the above?
