Israel is a racist country and they always ask the US to justify their crimes and cover up for them, enough is enough.

It's 2009. Americans should lobby the Obama Administration to cut off the military aid to both EGYPT and ISRAEL. Let this area work it out amongst themselves.

Can we cut off aid to African and let them work it out themselves as well? Or just the countries/people you don't like?

To all the people who sleep safely in their beds at night and have the audacity to criticize the Israeli government, this is for you:
None of you spoke in the past 8 years when rockets and bombs fell in southern Israeli cities, causing death and damage without any provocation on our part.
What you need to understand are two things-
First of all, there is no functioning government in Gaza. The Hamas took over (in a military coup!) and they are running the show. The Hamas, in case you didn't know, is a terror organization. Just like Al-kaida and Hezbollah. Israel is dealing with terror organizations all around its borders. Not with governments. And not with civilians. We have nothing against the Palestinians. Only the terrorists.
The second thing you need to know is that the Hamas is a very cynical organization which uses innocent women and children to fight Israel. They launch their missals from civilian's houses, not from open fields or military camps, and when the Israeli army wants to destroy those missals launchers- sometimes innocent people die.
They stash weapons; bombs etc. in hospitals, mosques, civil houses and schools exactly for this purpose- they know that the Israeli army will not bomb those places. Over the years, they have dig tunnels between Egypt and Gaza to smuggle everything, including weapons which is being used against us.
The Israeli army has such advanced technologies they can surgically hit those places. And that is exactly what we are doing. The manipulations in the media, done by the Arabs are ridicules, at best.
Ask yourself- what would you do if your life was constantly under threat? Look at the map. Maybe that will help you grasp our geographic situation.
The purpose of the Israeli army is to defend. Not attack.
So next time you think about how miserable and poor the Palestinians are, and how powerful and evil the Israelis are- think again.

How about ALL aid until we are not trillions of dollars in debt with one quarter of our citizens without health care?

there are two sides to every confrontation. Both have valid concerns, how ever if someone came into my country kicked me out of half of it and gave it to my worst enemies, they would be lucky if i only fired a couple of rockets at em. However I do not agree with any type of suicide attacks. But as for the use of women and chilldren. When you can not openly recruit an army without getting bombed, you do what you can.

Just shows that Arabs and Muslims in particular can't be trusted to keep an agreement. Burn 'em all. Bush should have done it right after 9/11 and no one would have criticised him for it.

There are two sides, but I don't think the Palestinians can ever be accused of making the best of a bad situation. Spend 40 years trying to blame Israel for all of your problems instead of working to make lives better.

Gaza is a perfect example. Israel left a couple of years ago and yet they spend their time launching rockets into Israel. Yes, Israel does blockade Gaza, but Gaza shares an entire border with Egypt and we don't see them firing rockets at the Egyptians who also restrict the border.

All this being said, Israel overreacted and this will likely not leave Israel any more secure.

Israel deserves what it gets after all its crimes for so many years. Israel is occupying land that does not belong to it, enough is enough.

It's occupying land it won in a war started by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. If the Palestinians could have gotten their act together, we'd be 8 years into a Palestinian homeland.

What is most notably absent in the paper today is an editorial condemning Israel for the wanton acts of genocide it is committing with a wink from the neoCohen Bush administration. Don't think for a minute that this wasn't planned months ago.

If you've ever been to Israel, you know that is not true.
1 - How ironic was it that Israel accepted refugees from Darfur (a province of a Muslim and enemy country) when Egypt wouldn't allow them to settle in Sinai?
2 - How odd that not only do they accept migrant workers from Thailand (not the most Jewish of countries) but have a growing Asian population there?
3 - There are no laws against immigration of non-Jews and (unlike, say, in Afganistan) you do not get the death penalty for converting to a different religion.
Please think of what you say before talking. If you do not, you often (as now) look foolish and lose credibility.

You are aware that this conflict has been going on for thousands of years? Israel agreed to leave Gaza, and they did, and then the Palestinians elect a terrorist government that allows for their people to launch rockets into Israel.
The entire country is the size of New Jersey, all the Arabs in the region blast Israel for not providing the Palestinians with their own state...go look at a map and tell me why any one of those surrounding countries don't volunteer a tiny slice of their land so that "their" people have a homeland.
Because Arab / Muslims are the lowest form of life on Earth ?

Clearly the Palestinians do not want Peace
They elected Hamas, a terrorist organization to represent them
Hamas not only adamantly refuses to recognize Israel, it calls for the destruction of Israel.
Backed by Iran, who also calls for the destruction of Israel

Perhaps Israel will grind Hamas into oblivion once and for all
and if Iran wants to get involved
Nuke them
then maybe there can be Peace in Gaza
or Peace in the Middle East
