    More likely because, on a regular basis, Israel forgot that an "eye for an eye" doesn't mean "116 eyes for an eye"

    Perhaps the Pals should get the message and stop attacking Israel.

    Palestine the country didn't exist before the Israelis fought for and won their freedom in 1948.

    After what the Arabs have done to the Jews over the past few thousand years, I'm having a hard time summoning any sympathy for the Palestinians. Sorry.
    Read the Old Testament, you might have a hard time summoning sympathy for the Jews.
    Who was living in the area before the Jews decided they had the authority to divy it up?

    She's, erm, "apologized".

    Helen Thomas
    I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.
    Translation: "Whoops! Sorry for revealing that I'm a senile idiot."

    It's not like this is a solitary incident: CAMERA: Editor and Publisher Defends the Indefensible Helen Thomas

    And now, for Helen Thomas acting clueless: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICq2A...layer_embedded

    She's not a politician (nor was Dan Rather) so what do you expect to be done by "liberals"? Seems like there is a fair amount of outrage over it... but of course, you need to blame liberals because she hasn't been lined up against a wall and shot.

    IMHO, revenge is barbaric. The expression "an eye for an eye" makes my skin crawl. Maybe that's why it's a war crime.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    We aren't discussing Americans in Iraq/Afghanistan and Pakistan. We are discussing Israel. However, since you saw fit to bring it up irrelevantly, I will provide you with one answer and then move back to the thread topic...yes, I am against the killing of civilians in any conflict.

    That being said, I didn't say the Israelis were "out of control". In fact, I think the Israelis are fully in control of themselves and it is the Palestinians who are out of control. However, that leaves Israel with a much greater responsibility to act in a humane and measured way when they respond to threats from Palestine...something which they have been seriously failing to do.

    It belonged to Jordon.
