    In regards to the current situation, Israel has enforced a strict military blockade on Gaza for over a year, this blockade, according to many Palestinian officials is bringing Gaza dangerously close to a humanitarian crisis. Hamas recently refused to renew a cease fire agreement it has had with Israel for the past 6 months due to Israeli refusal to loosen this blockade. The termination of the cease fire by Hamas spurred this massive new operation by Israel.

    Maybe some of those so desperate to claim Israeli innocence in all this should note that the last time any Arab states declared a military blockade of Israel, Israel used it as a pre-text to rout 3 Arab armies and annex an area of land 3 times her own size!

    Of course Im sure Israel could claim her blockade was justified based on prior Palestinian actions, the Palestinians would however claim those actions were justified based on past Israeli actions and so on and so forth. Very quickly wed be discussing 1967 or 1948.

    The most important thing right now is for both sides to agree a new cease fire so that a humanitarian crisis in Gaza can be avoided and the people of Southern Israel can live in security.
    Great points Slainte. I agree that a cessation of hostilities is the proper course for now. Though with the coming election in Israel, it is unlikely that the Israeli government will stop the attacks and abandon the blockade. The chances of reelection of Kadima will increase as the hostilities continue. In addition to Palestinians in Gaza dieing, and increased support for Hamas, it is likely that Abbas and the PA will lose support from Palestinians in the West Bank.

    The elections in Israel have been postponed until this is settled. For some reason, you and others imagine that there is a chasm between the Israeli government and the Israeli people on this. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Israeli people demand that their government do whatever is necessary to stop the incessant Hamas attacks. On this, there is total unity.

    I wonder if attempting to enter EU has anything to do with it.

    Im merely stating a fact. Would you not agree with me.

    I've said it it a few different ways but I will try it yet in another way.

    Muslims will get on top by making more new voters than non-Muslims.

    Procreating. Maternity. Birthrates. Increasing the numbers of progeny.

    Tell me when you see what I'm getting at.

    For the sake of the argument, let's say that is the case.

    But who has the power to bring peace?

    The Palestinians.

    We all know that if the Palestinian government recognized and enforced Palestinians to respect the right of Israel to exist in peace ALL the violence against the Palestinians and Israelis would stop.

    Saying that both are to blame is a cop out.

    Talk to me about who has the power to bring about peace.

    So do you propose eugenics as a solution to this?

    For some reason I just don't think extremists are the voting kind.
