    Interesting. I havent heard that anywhere, especially not from the pro-Palestinian crowd.

    This, of course, begs the question:
    Why isn't Hamas also sending rockets into Egypt?

    Egypt isn't building settlements in the West Bank.

    Hamas gets weapons smuggled from Egypt.

    Ask Hamas.

    - Do you agree that the graph shows that it is possible to nearly stop the rockets by not attacking Gaza?

    And did you know that while 8,000 settlers left Gaza, over 40,000 settled in new illegal colonies in West Bank?

    ("40,000" was two years ago, now it must be around 80,000 since they are paid by the Israeli government)

    Israeli settlement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    B'Tselem - Encouragement of migration to the settlements
    That's the thing. No one is saying Israeli's can't live there. They just can't do it with the support of the Israeli government. If they want to live there, get visa's like anyone else. It's a lot better than having part of a country that looks like sun spots all over someone else's land. There isn't a country in the world that has borders like that.

    So... Gaza -isn't- cut off by Egypt -- it just depends on what it is that Hamas wants to bring thru the border.

    Weapons to kill Israelis? No problem.
    Food and medicine for the children of Gaza? No way.

    Amazing what people will go through to not have to admit that the problems in Gaza aren't all Israel's fault.

    Its not all Israel's fault but it does also have responsibility, as do the Arabs.

    When Hamas (and the rest of the pro-Palestinian crowd) starts holding other Arabs accountable for the plight of the Palestinians like they do Israel, you, they, and your statement will hold water.

    Well, if you look closely, you will see that not too many arab states are coming to their aid. That's holding them accountable, don't ya think?

    Notice how the grievance is always changing? Just like AQ or any other terror outfit. The grievance simply morphes as needed to justify whatever it is they're doing at the moment.

    That's what -has- to happen when you ultimate goal is to destroy Israel, as no matter what Israel does to make you happy, you're STILL going to attack her.
