    Six die in Israeli attack over Hamas 'tunnel under border to kidnap soldier' - Times Online

    The Israeli military described the operation as a “pinpoint” raid to destroy a 250-metre tunnel that it said the hardline Palestinian movement was digging under the border to try to kidnap an Israeli soldier – as it did in the summer of 2006.

    No, prior to the Crusades, the Muslims had been on the offensive. Note the verb tense pleace - it was very carefully selected. The Muslims had been on a non-stop offensive since the 7th century. It took them to central France and brought them long-term occupation of Spain. They were pushing on Asia Minor, though the Byzantines had resisted them to that point. They had also pushed into Central Asia. Islam was on the offensive. Did the not expect that someone would push back at some point?

    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.
    The behavior of soldiers was not civilized, I would agree. However, war sucks. The Muslims shouldn't have brought it on the Christian world.

    Of course they were going to attack a fricken tunnel. What do you think the purpose of that tunnel was?!?!?

    But, from your POV, what has Israel failed to do to try bringing about peace?

    Show the utmost restraint, instead of dealing it themselves. Can they not call on UN or NATO to patrol between the two areas and/or station mixed armies to be placed inside Gaza? Talk to Hamas? Talk to Iran who may be able to influence Hamas? Not threaten Iran with war which may cause Iran to want to arm up Hezbollah and Hamas incase Israel does attack? Not respond in a manner which makes the world condemn them and remove any shred of sympathy with them? Re open peace talks with Arab countries brokering it again?
    I asked what Israel HASN'T done to try to bring about peace.

    They have agreed to bring in the UN but the UN people were subverted.

    The Hamas Covenant eschews negotiation.

    Iran has no interest in adjudicating the matter in any way that doesn't result in Israel being "wiped off the map." (Ahmadinejad's own words.)

    The reason war is being threatened is because Iran will not back down from wanting to point a nuclear gun at the heart of Israel.

    It would be non-sensical to expect Iran to fairly and objectively adjudicate a peace between Palestine and Israel.

    The world has gotten used to condemning anything the Israelis do, to them Israel is the safe country to pick on because the Israelis DO show restraint, whereas many nations fear Islamic terrorism will erupt in their countries if they side with Israel.

    We're at the point where the UN is no longer an impartial body, ESPECIALLY with regard to Israel.

    U.N. institutional structures consistently are used to isolate and vilify Israel.

    The U.N. has failed to investigate Palestinian actions supporting terrorism.

    The U.N. has tolerated and fostered anti-Semitism and anti-Israel propaganda.

    The U.N. Human Rights Commission promotes anti-Israel, anti-Semitic resolutions.

    Who said all of the dead are all civilians. Did you read the link I provided? Most of the dead are security personel. NOT civilians.

    Nope, can you repost it? Or is it a few pages back?

    By the way, you do realize that if the IDF was actually trying to kill civilians there would be tens of thousands dead for the same numbers of sorties flown and the same amount of ordinance dropped so far, right?
