It was the Pope who declared the attack, remember and Christians coming to ME wiping out Jerusalem of Muslims and Jews and even killing Eastern Christians until "blood ran until ankle deep"
Hell, don't even try the crusades. We all know that was the era of christian barbaric behaviour. They should have taken a leaf out of Saladin's book. You see, he actually spared the settlers when Jerusalem was reconquered.
Israeli jets kill ‘at least 225’ in revenge strikes on Gaza - Times Online
Anyone reckon Israel is aiming for 1,000 civilians? 24hrs, over 700 injured. 200 dead.Israel yesterday launched its largest raid on Gaza with two waves of air attacks that killed at least 225 people and injured more than 700, according to Palestinian doctors.
Children on their way home from school and policemen parading for a graduation ceremony were the principal victims of a bloody few hours that left the territory in flames.
The short but brutal aerial blitz — codenamed Operation Cast Lead — was aimed at targets held by the Islamic fundamentalists of Hamas, which seized control of the Gaza Strip 18 months ago.
I remember when I was a kid you could not turn on the radio or tv with out hearing of a another cafe resort market bus etc being bombed or some other terrorist action by militant Arabs in Israel. And they entered via the Border crossing sites.
And in those days Europe to. Bombings of El Al ticket counters at the air ports and of course the Munich tragedy by the PLO Fatah faction under Yasser Arafats control
I am not saying that Israel is perfect. But ALL the suffering of the Arabs in Gaza and the West Bank can be layed at the feet of the terrorists.
It is no coincidence that every time a peace process is started that the terrorists step up their attacks to insure it's failure.
They are the sole reason that the cycle of blood shed continues and why the borders are always being closed.
If the Arabs truly want to show Israeli aggression then the way to do it is through peaceful means. If the terrorists disbanded and the Arabs truly wanted to settle the conflict peacefully and still the Israeli's refused and would not change their policies towards them THEN the Arabs would have a bona fide case of agression that nobody could deny.
But as it is now, It is obvious that the Israeli government/military actions are defensive in nature and not offensive.

Everyone seems to have "forgotten" Israel's military attack on the tunnel during the ceasefire or is it just Hamas we are focusing on?
