    I am still a firm believer if the people would stand behind their elected president, Mr. Abbas he could bring peace to the region. BUT as long as the hamas stand in the way this will never happen.

    By the way wasn't it in 1948 they proclaimed independence, and in such Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq invaded?



    They are much worse because they don't just yell and shout their ****ed up ideas. They carry them out.
    Hamas is so ****ed up, they're almost as hated by arab states as they are the Israeli's.

    So why do the people tolerate them?
    After all they (hamas) broke the law when the seized control of Gaza from President Abbas.

    Do agree that Abbas was making progress before the hamas started interfering?
    Yes Abbas and Israel had many problems to work out but the main point was they were meeting face to face.

    Abbas will be going home to his garden soon. He's a lame duck, just like George. But yes, you're right, he got Israel to the table and willing to talk about fundamental issues between their two country's. And that was progress.

    Lets remember that Abbas is no angel.

    FATAH’S “MODERATE” CON JOB
    The Aqsa Brigades are not just any group of terrorists. They are the most ruthless, accomplished terror wing of Fatah, the organization bequeathed to us by the late Yasser Arafat. The Bush administration delusionally regards Fatah and its leader, Mahmoud Abbas (also known as “Abu Mazen”), as the “moderate” Palestinian faction. There is nothing moderate about them. Yet, the administration appears determined to play this foolish game to its inevitable end because, like its starry-eyed predecessor, it is entranced by the holy grail of Israeli/Palestinian peace.

    I am confused as to how that is relevant. Period. The fact of the matter is WHY are they lobbing rockets into Israel? What are their intentions? Are they doing it for shits and giggles? Or were they doing it to harm people. Whether they actually harmed numerous people does not apply. The fact that they were intending to is what matters. If they had such technology you'd be more sympathetic with Israel? Hmm, the logic there is rediculous. So while they're incapible of actually being accurate with their weapons we'll just sit back and think they're cute. Instead of showing them that fighting with someone you cannot win against with violence is not a smart idea. I feel badly for the innocent killed. But you can blame the Hamas for that, not the Israelis. If Israel did nothing to protect their people they may as well be the ones lobbing the rockets into their streets.
    Unfortunately, Israel has tried asking the Hamas to knock off their bull****, but they didn't. They were warned by Israel that if they did not stop lobbing rockets that there would be consequences.
    Also, have you not learned you cannot trust the media? You never go off believing something that has been "reported" if it has not been confirmed. Because then you're just assuming.

    It might have something to do with the fact that Israel has had a blockade of Gaza, that has stopped, limited, disrupted, the flow of humanitarian aid and medical supplies, for the LAST 18 MONTHS!

    According to Amnesty International...
    "The Israeli authorities' deliberate and wanton destruction of civilian infrastructure and property in the Gaza Strip amounts to a war crime. The destruction and the disproportionate and arbitrary restrictions imposed by the Israeli army on the movement of people and goods into and from the Gaza Strip also amount to collective punishment of the entire population. This violates the Fourth Geneva Convention, which prohibits punishing protected persons for offences they have not committed."
    And "collective punishment", is a war crime.

    If Hamas had met its end of the ceasefire (no more rocket attacks) and also ceased smuggling rockets into the strip, the blockade would have been gradually lifted. Hamas did neither. Hamas even attacked the transfer crossings and also hijacked fuel trucks.

    US Army Corps of Engineers personel are currently on the Egypt/Gaza border at the invitation of the Egyptian government to close existing tunnels and devise ways to prevent/detect new smuggling tunnels.

    If Hamas didn't bastardize everything, the Gazans would be far better off.
