    Abbas is very moderate. Why doesn't Israel support him?

    Re: Israeli ground troops enter Gaza

    And the BS cycle continues. Here is what will happen, as this happens everytime Israel does this.

    1. Rogue factions that Hamas cannot control (maybe this time they were follwing Hamas orders I don't know, but Hamas cannot control them) fire rockets into Israel
    2. Israel wants to do something and invades Gaza
    3. Palestinian civilians gets killed, drives numbers to join Hamas
    4. Israel leaves when they are satisifed
    5. Hamas regroup, peace between Israel and Palestine takes a few steps back
    6. Rogue factions that Hamas cannot control (maybe this time they were follwing Hamas orders I don't know, but Hamas cannot control them) fire rockets into Israel
    7. Israel wants to do something and invades Gaza

    and so on... the bs cycle continues.

    Why is Israel incapable of learning anything from the past. Invasion isn't going to make Hamas go away you know. I thought you would have learnt this in Lebanon, clearly not.

    It is always entertaining to see the great gulf between non-American views, leftwing and often rightwing and American views rightwing and often leftwing on Israel.

    You know you make a strong case for the mass deportation of the Palestinians at the least, and ethnic cleansing at the extreme. Truly though, Israeli responses have been far too mild for many years.

    No, it's bullets, bombs, mines, bayonets, shrapnel, fire, and falling buildings that make them go away -- off to meet their virgins.

    Deport Palestinians from their own land?

    I'd rather solve the problem in hand rather than echo the actions of madmen. Oh yeah the Palestinians did suffer a mass deportation already. You favour a mass deportation/ethnic cleansing like what the Native Americans experienced.

    I want to see the back of Hamas as much as the next guy, but this repeated failed strategy by the Israeli government has got to change. It has acheived no results so far, its not going do, in fact it makes things worse.

    I thought you Americans had learnt this lesson about repeating failed strategies in Iraq, obviously not .

    Yeah true, but even rogue factions have hard time controlling rogue factions. I bet if Hamas said to everyone in Gaza that no rockets should be fired into Israel, there would still be rockets being fired into Israel.

    I guess thats the difference between you and me, I have empathy for the common man.
