When some one points out a problem in something Israel does, the constant "well, soandso is worse" is simple excuse making, and entirely irrelevant.

    What level of kill to be kill is acceptable? That's an absurd question and not at all the point here. Israel has been known to engage in disproportionate responses against the Palestinian people for the crimes of militants within their population. This isn't acceptable for any other nation to do without the fury of the international community coming down on them like a storm.

    I proposed a long time ago that until it gets under control and some kind of workable peace is agreed upon, perhaps creating a no man's land that small rocket fire can't reach across between Palestine and Israel would be a good solution. Racing tanks through Palestinian neighborhoods, however, is not.

    Do you not think that there is a great disproportion when 465 people are killed on one side and 4 on the other side? When basic goods (such as chocolate or coffee) are banned, for no other reason than to punish civilians?

    Well the point is that Israel is a democracy, Arab countries are mostly dictatorships. That explains why there should be a difference.

    Except that the Israelis are acting in self defense.

    Much of the world doesn't care for Israel, because Israel always whens the fight?

    No because Israel responds to a slingshot with a mortar fire.

    No, it's because Israel, when they fight back, always seem to go further than necessary.
