Hundreds of Palastinian children have not diesd during the Israeli self defense offensive.
The latest count was 20 "children" have died in Gaza in the last 3 days.
Yesterday an Iranian supplied missle was launched by Hamas made a direct hit on an Israeli school during school hours. Luckily the school had been closed and was empty with it's students secured in bomb shelters instead of attending classes as children should be doing.
Children suffer during war. How many thousands of New York, New Jersey and Connesticut children lost a parent on 9/11. Well over a thousand children of NYC firemen alone became orphans that day not to mention the children of the thousands of other innocent civilians that dies in that nurderous attack. Children died that were on those hijacked planes that the Muslin fanatical terrorist turned into weapons. Children dies in the collopse of the WTC.
The cause of the death of the Palastinian children is the direct result of the Hamas milititary wing hiding among Palastinian civilians. Hamas using children and adult civilians as human shields.
So place the blame where it properly belongs on the cowards that are Hamas who are willing to sacrifice the lives of children and civilians to save themselves.
I still Iranian Air Force is with their new Iranian manufactured "Lightning Fighter jets? Should trhe Iranian Air force not be going to the aid of their Hamas allies. Should the Iranian Air force not be taking to the skiesw to meet the IAF head on.
APPARENTLY THE IRANIAN AIR FORCE IS A BUNCH IF YELLOW BELLY COWARDS WHO CONMTINUE TO HIDE IN THE "MOUSE HOLES" IN IRAN REFUSING TO TAKE OFF.
Iran has vowed to destrroy Israel well now is their channce. Tell the dictators of Iran to launch the Air force and go to the aid of their Hamas brothers.
But they won't. Cowards to the core.
But their day is coming. Sooner then they think.

Hamas is the main address for all the responsibility over the death of innocents in this round of battles.
It is Hamas who fires rockets into populated towns and cities on the Israeli side.
It is Hamas who maliciously draws the IDF into fighting in Urban areas in order to use civilian casualties as a weapon in the media and as human shields in the fighting.
It is Hamas who hides all it's headquarters, rockets and explosives inside people's homes, inside Mosques, Schools and Hospitals!

Hamas is doing everything in their power to make this struggle a blood bath of innocents and civilians on both sides like the cowards they are - knowing fully well that they can't face Israel in legitimate warfare.

Yesterday there was an Arab in China who refused to answer many of the same things your excellent post contained. His only reply was that I was not worth talking to because I was a "clever" J/3w."

So blind with hate and propaganda that they are, I can at least say that I tried. When cornered "you are a J/3w" is their reply and nothing else.

But as the old saying goes: Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

What you wrote I could not have put any better myself.

You said: YOU ARE POSTING PROPOGANDA.
Yet you yourself has said many things here that are not true.
Especially the number of children that have been killed.
By count you said 20 yet this morning the toll, so far, has been 35.
Also, just what stakes do you have in Israel that makes you so sure about what you've written.
I see that you never mentioned that Israel treats it's neighbors using Aparthied methods, yes this is a fact, LOOK IT UP!.
Also, you didn't mention how many times Israel has ignored the sanctions put on it by the UN knowing that it has the most powerful military in the middle east and therefore can do anything it's wants,
see today's invasion.
I wonder just how much you do know about Israel since you haven't mentioned it.
And since you know what you say to be absolute fact, expand.
Oh please stop with the "Arpartheied" crap

They wanted the Israeli's out of Gaza and they left. Even since trhe Israeli's left the standard of living in Gaza has deteriorated.

Now you have a bunch of thugs that call themselves "Hamas" bringing the wrath of the Isreali military upon the Palastinians as they aggressively fire Iranian manufactured rockets into civilian population centers in Israel.

First rocket attacks from Lebannon and now Gaza. Enough of this terrorist war of attrition. Hamas asked for war and they got it.

Now they want the world to save them before they die at the hands of the IDF. Grown men who act like a bunch of schoolyard bullies. They are so tough until someone styands up to them and then they go running for the school Principal for protection.(The U.N.)

Well we the people of the United states have a great idea. Let's move the entire U.N. to Gaza. Then all the diplomats of ther world can go live there and get a firsthand account of what occurs there everyday.

Great idea. Move the United Nations to Gaza. Get it out of New York where the world's diplomats spend more time dining in New york's fine resturants, shopping on 5th Avenue. attending world class ballet, symphonys and Broaqdway shows and living in luxary buildings in mid town Manhattan.

Hamas is a mafia that runs Gaza for their own power and profit.

They are not interested in a Palestinian state because if that existed it would mean the population voting them out of power...as they'd already done.

Hamas took over Gaza by killing Palestinians in a civil war started by themselves.

They attack Israel in the hope of distracting their own people and the world from their own failures as a government and voice of their people.

Now that Israel defends itself, Hamas again has taken to killling their own people to stay in power.

This is a parasite that will lead to the death of a nation that they lie about leading.

Only one Muslim nation on earth holds free elections, Turkey. The rest of the Arab/Muslim world will have none of it...and then blame the west.

I still want to know who these so many "Jews" are who claim this land as an ancestral land? Many of them come from caucasian eastern european people or are from Russian backgrounds. Tell me how these caucasians are in anyway related by blood to Moses, Aaron, Jesus or the 12 tribes of Israel? It seems to me that these outsiders or whose parents were outsiders are not "Jews" at all, and even if they are they have no historical right to any land in the Mid-East.

He was talking about the death of Hamas, not the Arab people.

"Their day is coming" means that one day the Palestinians will be free of a para-military that took control via civil war.

What it means is that one day all of Palestine will have democracy, not just the west bank.

Fatah was voted in two years ago and Hamas couldn't accept that...so they opened fire on their own people.

The day is coming when Palestine will be free...of the tyranny of Hamas, god willing!

Millions of Jews are of Middle Eastern origin. Remember that the Arab countries upon the creation of Israelkicked out 800,000 Jews and confiscated their property. Most of these Jews went to Israel.

The biggest and most glaring mistake
was when the UN allowed Israel, sitting in the middle of a country not it's own, the status of STATE with accords regulated to a full country.
Now the UN and the US sees that this is a tiger by the tail who won't listen to anyone and can run rough shod over it's neighbors anytime it wishes what with all the fire power in the world.
It was just a few months ago that Bush sent Israel a shipment of cluster bombs. WITH OUR TAX PAYER MONEY.
Many americans don't know that it is indeed the 8 BILLION TAX DOLLARS that is fianincing this run away havoc.
Since it's inception Israel has ignored the countless sanctions put on it by the UN. It knows that it has the complete backing of the US, our Congress and the powerful White House
and that Bush probably and secretly O.K.'d this invasion from Israel.
Since Bush has already demonstrated how much he think's of human live, see EXECUTIVE ORDER sending more troops to Iraq to be killed or maimed he certaily doesn't care about a few school children being slaughtered by Isralie weapons and planes.
Israel has shown the US and the world that it doesn't need anyone's help now, now that it has all the fire power in use against it's enemy's.
Israel can't use the old phrase that it has a right to exist, not while ignoring international outrage while it destroy's innocent civilian homes,
schools, and mosques.
My biggest prayer is that president Obama ignore the pleadings of Hillary Clinton and pull the plug on Israel.
It does not need our support and money.
LET ISRAEL STAND ON IT'S OWN TWO FEET.
USE THE 8 BILLION WE SEND TO THAT PLACE FOR OUR OWN NEEDS.
And forget the pleadings of american jews who see this as their right.
FLUCK the scummy Isralie's
Hey Idiot, in the middle of what country did the UN put Israel? Oh that's right Palestine, when was that ever a separate entity? Oh, that's right the last time Palestine was an entity was when the Roman colonial oppressors (yeah your people) gave that name to the Jewish nation state. So a true Palestinian is the Israeli. Where were you when the rockets were landing in Israel, when the Hamas leadership just last week were mocking the fact that the Israelis were allowing it? It is a shame that women and children are involved, but where are all the Hamas leaders? Be honest, nothing would make you happier then stuffing all the Jews into the ovens, you anti semitic bastard

If that logic is true, then you can't consider yourself an african american. You and your parents weren't born in Africa, so you too are an outsider, right?

My goodness you are so far behind in the military equipment the United States has sold to Israel. 600 of the latest bunker buster missles that can penetrate 1 mile into the earth. These bunker buster missles that were developed by a expert in explosive technology who was an immigrant from South Vietnam brought here as a 12 year old child at thye end of the Vietnam War. Her commnet as to providing our military with these new earth penetrating mislles was "I do this with great gratitude to my adopted country which has given me so much."
By the way these new earth penetrating missles can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads.
Then you have the entire Isreali submarine fleet recently outfitted with the most moder Harpoon mislles in their silos. Imagine thaqt Israeli's submarine force is now armed with MIRV's. Again thse Harpoon missles carry both conventional and nuclear warheads.
Then there is this "rumor" that Israel has acquired 300 tactrical nuclear warheadsfrom Geroge.
Now what could they possibly be used for?
Bomb, bomb, bomb
Bomb, bomb I---!
Interested in a full scale Middle East peace conference yet?
Don't forget thqt new half a million man Iraqi military which we have been trwining for the past 6 years. Now we are training the Iraqi Air force pilots and helicopter pilots.
Oh great another fully armed democracy smack dab in the center of the Middle East.
My God Bush and Cheney did a great job.
Now you have to deal with Obama. Look out Afganistan terrorist the "Thug" fron chcargo is coming for you. You may want the "cowboy" back after you deal with Obama. Chicargo politicfians don't believe in mercy at all.
But keep reading the "Jewish" controlled American press about how bad thkjngs are going for us over there.
You never should have knocked down our buildings and killed our people. Doing that left us (The U.S. Government) one option and that was to massively expand American military influence into the Middle East.
Don't be confused about the "us" and the U.S. Government. Just try really hard to comprehend "WE" The People" are the government.
Ain't been no huge anti war demonstrations around here in the last 6 years. We simply keep watching the tapes.

Now ask yourself? Was it worth it?

Being a life long New Yorker there is some truth to the Jewish people contrrolloing the media. For many years Jewish men ran the news stands on the streets ands subway platforms thoughout NYC. They stood in sub zero tempetures to sell their newspapers, magazines, candy and cigaretttes for 12 to 16 hours a day. They did the same rthing in the torrid heat of the summers.

They worked 7 days a week to send their children to c" in a way at one time Jewish people cdontrolled the NYC media.

However this news site is currently owned by the Iriah Catholic family the Dolan's who also own Cablevision.

So apparently Newsday has an Irish slant to it's reporting.(Tongue in cheek.)
