    It's a vicious cycle.



    Sounds like American inner cities and gang violence, on a smaller scale, of course.



    It seems that all Palestinians are paying the price for the extremists.

    I know, they should police their own. See inner city gangs.



    This is true.



    I wouldn't say never. It would take something of biblical proportions to end it though. If it's as hopeless as you say, what is your solution? Kill all the Palestinians?



    If Arabs wanted Jews dead, they would be. It's the extremists that do, luckily.



    The first punch is irrelevant.



    Kill 'em all?



    You said earlier in this post that violence is never going to end. Let's say they kill all Arabs, what do you think would be the blowback from that?
    Man, you bring up some excellent points. And I can't find a one to argue with.

    Kill all the Isrealites? Kill all the Arabs? Do I have a solution?

    Man, I do good to just match my socks in the morning and get them on the right feet. I have no solution.

    Maybe, and I hope I'm wrong, it's time to just let them duke it out once and for all. Last man standing, turn out the lights and lock the door.

    I can see the US standing on the sideline keeping others out of the fight and providing Isreal with Gatorade in between rounds. A lot of people think we are protecting Isreal. I am sure, in many ways, that is true. But, on the other hand, we are also protecting Palestine. For if Isreal totally cut loose, no holds barred, on Palestine, Palestine would be decimated.

    Then the other Arab nations will jump the rope and get into the ring. Then the US will have to intervene. Then Russia and China. Then Britian. Then Germany and France. No, wait. Forget about France.

    I don't have a clue what to do over there.

    Yeah I have to agree there Cap. If Israel were to be "Cut loose" so to speak... Game over.

    Remember the systematic bombings that happened when they had what.. 3 military personnel that were being held prisoner? Sheesh.

    Thank you. It is a great month to be remembered by.

    Look, just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't have feelings. I feel really bad that I don't care.

    But...............................

    I don't care.

    On the surface, I agree that doesn't make a whole lotta sense, does it?

    But I think it's a little bit deeper than that. Perhaps they are clearing out the minefield before the attack. (Analogy being the Hama's Police being the minefield they would have to clear to get full access to the extremists.)

    When Isreal goes after the extremists, door to door, you KNOW the Hama's police would be there waiting loaded for bear. Not now.

    Never underestimate Israeli strategy. They can be the most cunning and ruthless people on the planet. Read the Old Testament.

    Iran to send aid cargo to the Gaza Strip

    Iran will send its first ship carrying aid today to the Gaza Strip despite an Israeli naval blockade of the Hamas-controlled territory, state television reported.


    Israel patrols the coastal waters around Gaza and accuses Iran, which refuses to recognise Israel's existence, of supplying Hamas Islamists with weapons. Tehran denies this, saying it only provides moral support to Hamas. Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip has been stepped up in recent weeks amid a surge of violence along its frontier with the Palestinian territory.


    "Despite the Zionist regime's blockade ... the Iranian aid ship will leave on Saturday and will arrive in 12 days' time in Palestine," television reported.


    It said 12 Iranian doctors and relief workers would be on board. "The cargo contains over 2,000 tonnes of food, medicine and appliances."

    Looks like we might have another "Bay of Pigs" styled face-off.

    Gonna be interesting to watch this play out.

    Israel vows to keep up Gaza attacks

    Israeli airstrikes pounded Hamas-ruled Gaza on Saturday, killing at least 205 people, and Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the military aimed to inflict a "major blow" on militants in Gaza because of escalating rocket attacks against Israel.
    Yay, just what we need. Further attacks
