    Lol, Israel is tearing it up!

    This should be a message: Israel will take only so many bombshells from you, before they fire bombshell back.

    and about time too. With all this fighting for thousands of years, SOMEONE has to win at some point. Its either going to be under Israeli rule, or palestinian rule. I myself, would prefer to have Israel own the ME.

    As for the UN relief agency, sad thing, but you know, if they would have done what any sane person would have done, they would have just packed up and left untill the war was over. When you stick your hand in a dog fight, your going to get bit.

    Why is everyone treating the Palestinians like a bunch of innocent lemmings? Everyone of those suckers has an AK-47 and RPG launcher. All this "poor little Palestinians" blabbering is total bull****. Half of them are probably helping Hamas.

    This thread is about an attack on UNRWA and doesn't have anything to do directly with Palestinians. Stop ranting.

    More on topic, regarding the school that was bombed by Israel:

    Yes Sir, your highness Sir!!! The whole relief effort between the Red Cross and the UN seems like a cluster****! The UN has peacekeeping troops, why aren't they in there protecting their own?

    I'd imagine that this is why most civilized people try to locate their troops in places where there are few civilians.

    What the UN won't publicize is how they also suspended their work in Lebanon...

    It is not clear who fired on the UN aid convoy at the Erez Crossing, and the UN admits it is not sure Israel is to blame. Others point to Hamas gunfire that targeted the UN convoy.

    GAZA CITY, Gaza (CNN) -- The main humanitarian aid group for the United Nations in Gaza has suspended activities in the Palestinian territory, its chief spokesman said Thursday.

    The move comes after a U.N. Relief and Works Agency truck driver was killed and two other people were wounded by an Israeli tank shell near the Erez Crossing, said Adnan Abu Hasna, a spokesman for the U.N. agency in Gaza.

    A spokeswoman for the Israeli military said it is not aware of the attack but said Hamas militants sometimes have targeted U.N. aid trucks to take food.

    The U.N. relief agency will suspend activities until the Israeli military can guarantee the safety of its staff, said the agency's chief spokesman, Chris Gunness, in Jerusalem.

    The U.N. agency provides food and relief supplies to about 80 percent of Gaza's 1.5 million people.

    Israeli artillery and missiles have struck three U.N. schools in Gaza this week. More than 40 civilians were killed in a strike Tuesday on a U.N. school in Jabalya that was being used as a shelter. Three people were killed in airstrike Monday on a school shelter in Gaza City.

    Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Israeli forces fired on Hamas militants in "the immediate vicinity" of the Jabalya school. Gunness vehemently denied any militants were inside the school and demanded that Israel agree to an impartial investigation.

    Is there any evidence whatsoever that this was an intentional attack?

    ludahai,

    February 5th, my boys will be coming to your town to drop a few bombs of their own and there's nothing the UN can do to prevent it. So you might as well hide all your hotel intern's and run for cover, because on February 5th, ya'll gonna see the best in town!

    Now back to our regularly scheduled debate>>>
