    But you are aware that the arab states in the ME have waged open war against Israel, right?

    And that they continue to wage via proxy now, right? Or are Hamas and Hezbollah simply independent socio-economic organizations funded by NGO's?
    Not sarcasm. Hezbollah definitely has become a proxy but I believe it began as a resistance group during the occupation of south Lebanon. The Hamas, in Gaza, have been cut off from significant support for a while now as can be seen by their pitiful resistance.

    Fear and Resolve as Rockets Head North into Israel

    Published: December 30, 2008

    More than 370 Palestinians have been killed in the Israeli assault so far, including at least 70 civilians. The militants have responded with increasingly advanced rockets that reach farther into the country with each passing day.

    Women and children are obviously civilian but with no Hamas uniforms or with only irregular uniforms (maybe a camouflage jacket or some such item of clothing perhaps) how can they tell who is a member of the military and who is a civilian?

    A good question, also I would have to say a 300:70 ratio is pretty damn good for long range weaponry.

    LOL! Wow, I cannot understand why the Israeli navy would pull out the stops to keep an unauthorized, uninspected vessel that won't respond to radio contact from breaking a blockade in the middle of a shooting war! Geez, it's not like it could have been bringing, you know, weapons and explosives to Hamas.

    Unheard of!

    Label?

    You do tend to support the Palestinian side of the story without exception.

    This does make it seem that you have some inherant dislike for jews

    When a Navy vessel orders that aid ship to identify itself and that ship refuses ... it becomes a valid target.

    For all you know those ships may have contained machine guns, bombs, or other such items.

    I have no issues with EU, I'd much rather US influence continues to go down within the ME and EU goes up.

    This is an attitude I would expect from you.

    You dislike the US becuase they support Israel. This is just down right nasty not-niceness.

    Shame on you.

    The US isn't going to lose its influence so don't hold your breath.

    Were is are lovely pacifist friend Laila? Could she be out protesting, Maybe throwing rocks at the police? Or a molotov cocktail at the Israeli embasy. I can just picture her out there now burning an Israeli flag.
    Look there she is godbles****ler.jpg

    Just kidding with you Laila. I know you would never wish harm on anyone. I respect you for sticking to your peaceful pacifist ways. As-Salamu Alaykum my friend.
