    Yes... the "well, the Egyptians arent building settlements in the West Bank" response was nothing but misdirection and obfuscation. It doesn't address the issue at all.

    The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is a reflection of the global war on terror in microcosm.

    There are Imams calling for believers to rise up in opposition to the incursion and so some of the faithful are doing so in rallies. Others are doing it in online political forums.

    The incursion into Iraq and Afghanistan? WRONG; the Israeli/Palestinian conflict has been going on since 1948, perhaps even a few years earlier and has NOTHING to do with Iraq or Afghanistan.

    Carry on.

    Here's one for the moral equivalence crowd and the proportionality fetishists -

    Here is a good example of Hamas's modus operandi. They set up a mortar team next to a school crowded with refugees, fire a few rounds (acoustic mortar detectors can locate the source fairly quickly), then run before the counterstrike arrives. Innocent people pay the price — in this case, 30 killed, 55 wounded. This has happened at two different schools so far. So Hamas is not just hiding among civilians or using them as human shields, they are intentionally engineering headline-grabbing mass casualty events they can blame on Israel.

    Great bunch of guys.

    Well, if Israel would just get there ass out of the West Bank, take down that apartheid wall, stop stopping basic services and humanitarian relief from entering Gaza and restricting their bombing to where they set up the mortar rounds, they wouldn't have to bomb the school. I don't know why you'd want too. The school didn't fire the mortar rounds, assholes did. And just how is the Palestinian government supposed to stop these rocket attacks when IDF soldiers shoot anyone that has a gun?

    Oh yes it does. Israel is doing things that are enabling this hatred. If they would just stop exporting their own brand of terrorism, a lot of this hatred towards them would go away. Egypt did not turn Gaza into an open air prison, Israel did. And that's a war crime. What you want addressed, is a myth! You want Israel to be absolved of any wrongdoing at all. You think they can have their cake and eat it too.

    If the Palestinians would govern themselves resposnibily and stop indiscriminately killing Israeli civilians, well, you'd have a point.

    Right, so just let the Palestinians continue firing rounds into Israeli hoods because the Palestinians have holed up on school grounds, eh?

    Seriously, are the Palestinians immune from any responsbility for locating, storing, luanching, etc. terror attacks from schools, hospitals, cemeteries, etc.?

    I guess not to apologists like you.

    Your arguments are once more absurd and completely ignore the reason for so many Palestinian deaths; it is called terrorism. You might want to educate yourself on the topic and obtain an understanding why violence is the ONLY thing that terrorist have to offer the ignorant who believe in their cause.
    When have I supported terrorism? Please, I'd love for you to back this one up.

    Carry on; you seldom disappoint with your incessant terrorist propaganda which supports and ideology which primary purpose is the genocide of the Jewish people.

    Have a great day living in your own little world.
