Good thing they have such long memories so they can honor those who died in the process of making them the doormats of the middle east.
I wish we were treated like Syrians! Everyone wants to help Syrians. They're getting money and weapons by the truckload.

I agree. Money and weapons to the PA to get rid of Hamas. Then we can talk. Cut out the cancer in Gaza. I'm all for it.

Not me. In order to reach the publicized casualty count Syria must have suffered closer to 100,000 casualties (if not more) by now. You may bring out the old fart in me Ahmad but I wouldn't wish that on you or your people. I think the US and Israel should stay out of it...they obviously don't need any help killing each other.

PA got a lot of money and weapons to get rid of Hamas. They failed miserably, and Hamas only got stronger.

My people wouldn't kill each other like that. The whole Hamas-Fateh conflict killed about 500 people in both Gaza and the West Bank, which isn't even close to your average civil war death count.

You're welcome!

The fact that they would have had to fight their way through Israel to get at each other might have done more for the low body count than any brotherly Palestinian love. WTF! I'm sure of it. Don't you remember the ginormous argument I had with Veeky? Little prick still owes me footage of the birth of the Palestinian air force. Hamas was launching Fatah guys off the roofs in Gaza.

The US did arm one side against the other though. It is a known fact Dahlan received weapons from the US. And if the fighting had continued longer, Hamas would have probably lost. Thankfully Hamas was very swift and ended the fighting before it got out of hand.
Israel didn't interfere. On the contrary, they even made it easier for the PA to operate in the West Bank.

Duh. I was alive and able to read Ahmad, just like you. And again Hamas was saved by the bell.

You will never stop the haters on here as they have no reason within themselves. The truthers are the biggest liars. When truth should just speak for itself, these idiots want to be the messiah of so called truth, more like distorted, not the full story bs that is copied and pasted like bandwidth is about to run out any second. And are they paranoid! God bless Israel, ill be visiting sometime, hopefully soon.

Welcome to visit Israel, we welcome our friends and enemies too, let them see what democracy can do to people, even arabs, they dont have to live under any dictator, not even the muslim bros or hammas. There is nothing like freedom. Hope you come soon.
God Bless America!!!!!

Happy Hanukkah buddy!

You and I wish we had the same effect on women as the little pisher. No matter where he goes he has the ability to stop women in their tracks and make them stare adoringly while patiently waiting for the chance to hold him. Little girls stop crying when he's around...it's uncanny.

Henry, why don't you go back a little bit and take a look at who's copying and pasting BS. You'll notice all the copied/pasted stuff is pro-Zionist.

And Henry, if you do visit Israel, please try to visit the West Bank while you're at it. Make sure you visit the major checkpoints and crossings. Go to some of the villages in rural areas, ones that are close to settlements. Visit the old town Hebron, where a settlement has been built in the heart of the city.
And this goes without saying, but don't forget to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Dome of the Rock and the nearby museum(s). It will give you a very good taste of the Islamic identity of the city.

If you decide to visit the West Bank after all, make sure you visit Hisham's palace in Jericho, and Deir Al-Quruntal monastery, which looks like as if it was embedded into the side of the mountain.

And during your visit, don't forget to count how many checkpoints and crossings you go through.
