    I dunno, my country is as much Wessex and Dorset as Britain.

    I think it was better off this way anyway, the US is already far too big.

    I wonder where that would have left Churchill.
    It would have left him with more land and a need for more alcohol.

    Churchill was brialliant but man did he love to drink.

    Actually, people who knew him said that Winston liked to sip generally, but enjoyed having the reputation of a hard drinker.

    Whereupon Hama immediately kidnapped one of the journalists, causing the rest of them to flee in terror.

    Good grief, at least understand all sides of an issue, don't just pull out the parts that support your personal beliefs.

    For those who are interested in the nature of the Hamas regime, the following was published in the January 4, 2009 edition of The Jerusalem Post:

    Fatah officials in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post that Hamas militiamen had been assaulting many Fatah activists since the beginning of the operation last Saturday. They said at least 75 activists were shot in the legs while others had their hands broken.

    Wisam Abu Jalhoum, a Fatah activist from the Jabalya refugee camp, was shot in the legs by Hamas militiamen for allegedly expressing joy over the IDF air strikes on Hamas targets.

    I disagree. Israel's error is in not finishing the job. With ground forces, it may be easier for them to isolate the civilians and go after the terrorists and members of Hamas. IMO, they need to remain in Gaza and cleanse the area of terrorists and Hamas members, arresting as many as possible, until civilians, those who want no part of Hamas can take charge of their government. After watching this situation for years, and listening to many members he say that the civilians are unable to remove Hamas, Israel should do it, and do it now. It helps both them (stops the attacks that are their people) and the Palestinians civilians (prevents deaths due to collateral damage). Israel needs to end this, already, and since the Palestinians in Gaza are unable to do it, Israel needs to remove the terror organization, Hamas, the group that near everyone agrees is the cause of this, from power, once and for all.

    They KNEW civilians would be in there yet still attacked, that is killing civilians knowingly - how is that any different than Hamas? It is not different.
    That story is from Al Jazerra. It is propaganda. It is designed to anger muslims such as yourself. Do you pray in the Mosque at midnight? That is when this attack took place.

    Yet most claim that this is not possible and it hasn't happened. No, Hamas needs to be removed. They are a danger to the sovereignty of Israel and they are a danger to the lives of the Palestinian civilians.

    The fact that you ignored the fact that the video shows it was storing munitions is noted.
