    Which Muslims?
    Yes, because we are color coded.

    I saw white people there as well, christians, doctors. I suppose they are Muslims too right?

    The protest did not get out of hand.
    The clash occured AFTER the protest finished when the police was spliting up the group into two groups

    I was referring to those muslims who were militant enough to protest.

    Yeah pretty much, if it saves lives.
    But, you're not saving lives, just picking sides on who should lose their lives. When Hamas fires rockets into Israeli towns, Israelis are going to lose their lives. If you believe that Israel shouldn't be able to retaliate, then you've decided that Israelis should lose their lives. If you believe Israel should be able to retaliate, then you think that Palestinians should lose their lives. When considering whether Israel should be able to retaliate, you can't avoid choosing sides.

    I choose Israel's side because they are firing back at people who fire at them. For me, it has nothing to do with the justness of either side's cause.

    I repeat, all residents of Gaza, including members of Hamas with AK's in their hands and grenades in their pockets, are referred to as "civilians"... first, because Hamas is not a legitimate, uniformed military, and second because using the word "civilian" is a swell propaganda tool even if 80% of the dead were indeed combantants.

    Palestinian security sources said Sunday that at least 277 people, most of them Hamas militants, have been killed and hundreds more wounded.

    Please stop repeating the word "civilian" like a danged mantra. Even the Palestinians are reporting that most of them were Hamas militants.

    hEY, THEY ARE ALL CIVILIANS, HOW dare YOU BUY INTO THE iSRAELI-us mEDIA WHORES LIES!!!!


    Stop bringing up these little facts, you'll make those that support destroying Israel ya know... feel grumpy for a moment, but they'll rationalize it about how I just did above.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And how many times have US combat forces assisted Israeli forces in any military operation since 1948?

    Until 9/11 this Welfare Queen" as you called it earlier was the only nation that actually grabbed the bull by the horns and fought terrorists and their national backers eye to eye. They identified them, searched them out and destroyed them. This in turn earned them even greater wrath from the surrounding nations who really did not need any more reason to hate them. Thus we help them with money and weapons because Israel has been fighting the terror war which affects us all regardless of what part of the world we may live in all by themselves for years and have been the main populace to suffer for it.

    Israels Mossad is a highly respected 1st class intellignece agency. They have been giving us vital information for years that have helped us protect
    our interests and save American and Foriegn lives by giving us strong hard intel on terrorists plans and keeping us informed of the inner goings on of the hostile regimes in the region. This kind of information is invualuble to us in forming our own strategies in the region and protecting our country from further terrorist attacks.

    We have not "just handed" them anything. They have worked and bled for it

    This two minute video looked quite peaceful.

    video

    From what I see in this video, I see no problems. It seems pretty peaceful and in democracies, the right to peaceful protest should be treasured by all.

    The only problem I have though is if you look about 1 minute into the video, there is an Iranian flag. That is what I thought was disgusting here.
