    'Islamic states must cut Israeli ties'

    Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Mliki's Dawa party has called on the Islamic countries to cut relations with Israel over its atrocities in Gaza.

    The ruling party described the International community's silence and the Arab countries' indifference towards the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip as 'surprising' and 'disappointing'.

    In a statement released on Monday, Dawa Party condemned the Israeli slaughter of Gazans -- which started on Saturday and has so far left 345 Palestinians killed and 1,550 other wounded.

    The party said Israel's aggressive policies are not surprising. However, the statement suggests it is surprising that the Islamic and Arab countries' take no steady and serious action in condemning Israel and its aerial strike on the costal sliver.

    Iraq's ruling party called on all Islamic countries to cut their 'covered' and 'exposed' relations with the Israel regime and stand beside the oppressed nation of Palestine.

    The statement came a day after Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah accused 'some' Arab states of collaborating with Israel.

    "There are some Arab regimes who are truly partners of this project, especially those who signed peace treaties with Israel. They are supporting (the US-Israeli project) politically, psychologically, militarily and culturally through the media… They are contributing to impose the conditions of surrender on the rest of the resistance groups," he said.

    Israel says it is ready for "long weeks of action" as it continues its fiercest air assault on Gaza for decades to stamp out militant rocket attacks.

    Palestinian officials say 10 people died in the latest attacks, taking the death toll to over 360 since Saturday. Four Israelis have died in rocket fire.

    Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said this was the "first of several stages" of military action.

    A UN human rights monitor accused Israel of "shocking atrocities".

    Richard Falk - the special rapporteur for human rights in the Palestinian territories - said the international community must put more pressure on Israel to end its attacks on Gaza.

    "Israel is committing a shocking series of atrocities by using modern weaponry against a defenceless population - attacking a population that has been enduring a severe blockade for many months," Mr Falk said in a BBC interview.

    The UN says at least 62 of the Palestinians killed so far have been women and children, and it is calling for an investigation into the attacks, which are causing heavy civilian casualties.

    No, you're creating excuses.
    Not once have you declared that Hamas is wrong.

    If the nation in question never broke the ceasefire itself then yes.

    I don't care how many rockets, you do not react by dropping bombs on them to stop it. Somaliland should stop it but not by the same means.
    And what if they are not willing to stop firing the rockets? Do you ask nicely?

    If what you have stated is correct, then there can never be any form of defensive war at all, but rather only pacifism and the turning of the cheek.

    You show you are above them.
    You remove its support base. A terrorist group never gets where it is without a reason for it being there.

    So I will ask this philosophical question of you. Should a nation be able to use military force to retaliate against acts of aggression that were in breach of a ceasefire?
    I wound answer yes, but I think there's a better question.

    Should a nation use military force to retaliate against acts of aggression using long range weaponry if it will not solve the problem and may make it worse?

    The fact is these attacks accomplish nothing for either side. Hamas lacks the capabilities and intelligence to become a working party which could be held accountable and Israel lacks the will to solve the problem they've allowed to fester on their doorstep.

    Why do you absolutely reject responding to terrorist attacks with military force?
