Oh good lord, I am neither a Muslim nor a sympathizer of Palestinian radicalism. I have condemned both factions of this perennial affair which has elicited nothing but death and destruction in this world.
The evils of both Zionism and Islam are conspicuous for anyone with a willingness to look. Apparently, voicing criticism of either one gets you nothing but castigation and insults.
"I am neither a Muslim nor a sympathizer of Palestinian radicalism"
yet you seem to believe it wrong for the I.D.F to destroy Hamas rockets targeting Israeli civilians,using the death of Palestinian civilians to cover the fact you think Hamas should be allowed to murder Jews unhindered.
yes. useful idiot.

Under no circumstances do I advocate war or violence, but if Israel's intent is only to destabilize Hamas then why approve of such collateral carnage? We all saw the calamity of of the 08-09 siege in Gaza, did it satisfy Israel and all you pro-Zionist radicals to see the death of Palestinian women and children?

There is no pardon for the crimes against humanity that the Zionist war machine is guilty of. It is sickening to know of America's unequivocal support for that pariah state which neglects compliance with any international laws or guidelines.

let me get this perfectly clear:
you believe the IDF should NOT TARGET Hamas LAUNCH sites(targeting Israeli civilians)because Hamas position such sites next to their own civilians?
so basically you believe Muslims should be allowed to slaughter Jews at will.
you racist lump of filth.

Putting more words in my mouth I see. Racist? I have friends of all religions and ethnic backgrounds. I am much closer to Jews than I am to Muslims.

If Israel truly had regard for the lives of Palestinians, they would cease those air strikes causing civilian casualties en mass. Ground incursions are at least sensible for they can mitigate the spill of innocent blood.

Israel does not care for Palestinian lives. Hamas has launched 500 rockets which have only lead to a couple deaths and many injuries (still a tragedy, as is all death and suffering). Israel carries out a few air strikes and the death toll in Gaza is considerably higher in comparison. If the target is just Hamas outposts, why not issue a conventional military deployment? Like I said, its disproportionate use of force.

I voice the same displeasure with American drones in Pakistan. Easy and efficient is not compatible with the sanctity of preserving human life.

This is the typical Zionist mindset. Anyone who challenges the actions of the pariah state is deemed a Nazi or antisemitic.

Guess what? I have Jewish friends who completely abhor Israel and Zionism. One of them was born in Tel Aviv.

What would you suggest doing to stop a democratically elected leadership in Gaza from continuously firing missiles from civilian area at civilians?
Remember in Jenin when 13 Israeli soldiers lost their lives and the world called it a massacre when the battle was only a few block radius? Israel chose to send in troops instead of bombing them to save Palestinian civilian lives.
From a citizens point of view they would prefer to fire from the air than loose their lives in the rabbit holes of Gaza.
Hamas have been preparing for this for a long time, they have tunnels to kidnap soldiers explosives planted to blame Israel for casualties and so on. Would you be willing to go in if you had another option?

Israel has hit hundreds of targets over the past few days with minimal casualties. In one of the most densely populated areas in the world where most military installations are embedded in civilian areas and the majority are children Israel has and generally does pretty well to keep casualties fairly low. I am sad for those who have lost their lives but there comes a time where they must blame Hamas who they elected even on a platform called for killing Jews and wiping out Israel.

With children attacking the troops, women wearing bombs under their Burkas and so on fighting in Gaza is horror.

I wonder how you would react if your town was consistently targeted with missiles from a neighbor with the intention of harming civilians for a decade and your leadership did nothing to stop it.

I cannot think of ANY country in the world which would not have finished them off already.

Amazing how you compare it with drone attacks on the other side of the world. Shows where your outlook comes from.

Easy to sit all safe wherever you are and be an armchair pacifist but when a missile landed close to my home the other day with the sole intention of harming those around me it gives you a reality check if you need one.

As for this whole idea of disproportionate force here are some exerts from the Hamas Charter in my next post.

THE COVENANT OF THE HAMAS - MAIN POINTS

Covenant:

Goals of the HAMAS:

'The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinguished Palestinian
movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is
Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of
Palestine.'(Article 6)

On the Destruction of Israel:

'Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will
obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.'(Preamble)

The Exclusive Moslem Nature of the Area:

'The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf [Holy Possession]
consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgment Day. No one
can renounce it or any part, or abandon it or any part of it.'
(Article 11)

'Palestine is an Islamic land... Since this is the case, the
Liberation of Palestine is an individual duty for every Moslem
wherever he may be.'(Article 13)

The Call to Jihad:

'The day the enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the
individual duty of every Moslem. In the face of the Jews' usurpation,
it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised.'(Article 15)

'Ranks will close, fighters joining other fighters, and masses
everywhere in the Islamic world will come forward in response to the
call of duty, loudly proclaiming:'Hail to Jihad!'. This cry will
reach the heavens and will go on being resounded until liberation is
achieved, the invaders vanquished and Allah's victory comes about.'

(Article 33)

Rejection of a Negotiated Peace Settlement:

'[Peace] initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and
international conferences are in contradiction to the principles of
the Islamic Resistance Movement... Those conferences are no more than
a means to appoint the infidels as arbitrators in the lands of
Islam... There is no solution for the Palestinian problem except by
Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are but a
waste of time, an exercise in futility.'(Article 13)

Anti-Semitic Incitement:

'The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and
kill them. Then, the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the
rocks and trees will cry out:'O Moslem, there is a Jew hiding behind
me, come and kill him.'(Article 7)

'The enemies have been scheming for a long time ... and have
accumulated huge and influential material wealth. With their money,
they took control of the world media... With their money they stirred
revolutions in various parts of the globe... They stood behind the
French Revolution, the Communist Revolution and most of the
revolutions we hear about... With their money they formed secret
organizations - such as the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs and the Lions -
which are spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies
and carry out Zionist interests... They stood behind World War I ...
and formed the League of Nations through which they could rule the
world. They were behind World War II, through which they made huge
financial gains... There is no war going on anywhere without them
having their finger in it.'(Article 22)

'Zionism scheming has no end, and after Palestine, they will covet expansion from the Nile to the Euphrates River. When they have finished digesting the area on which they have laid their hand, theywill look forward to more expansion. Their scheme has been laid out in the 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion'.'(Article 32)

'The HAMAS regards itself the spearhead and the vanguard of the circle of struggle against World Zionism... Islamic groups all over the Arab world should also do the same, since they are best equipped for their future role in the fight against the warmongering Jews.'
(Article 32)

i do not think you need something like this to show how Islam or at least Political Islam/Islamism is evil. Does not seen to make a difference as people choose to appease with this Political Correctness bullshit and Multiculturalism which is really saying that we are all different but we cannot discuss it and anyone who does is a racist. Even though Islam is not a race. welcome to the end of Europe or the rise of the Nationalist right wing.
I feel sorry if you are from Denmark as from when i have read/seen your country has fallen into the same trap. It saddens me for many years watching the free societies i loved failing due to stupidity and hatred often hand in hand with anti-Israel of even Jewish atmosphere.

Why do you pretend that Palestinians started the violence, when Zionist thugs assassinated one of their leaders?

Do you think Israel should be allowed to assassinate, invade, and kill at will while you blame Palestinains for their own murders?
