    Thanks.
    I am not sure either. I just know that Syrians(ancient) invaded Israel and stayed there.. West bank is neighboring Jordan though. Its probably most accurate to ask Israelis or people from the neighbouring countries.

    I just think that some people are so distanced from war that it almost seems like a fairy tale to them. The use of images has a tendency to ground said individuals.

    I know quite a lot about war. I hate the people you are talking about, those are the people who are usually most eager to wage war, as part of their ignorance towards what it really is.

    I am biased too.. But only because Israel is one of the few countries that have been "certified" to belong to a people. Palestinians were the first invaders!

    Precisely. Most of the people I talk to have no idea why Israelis and Palestinians are fighting. They just know that Israel is the "good guy" and the Palestinians are "terrorists". The lack of a desire to think for one's self in this country is truly mind blowing.

    I am kind of a "flip flopper" on this issue with fluctuating opinions based on what the "current" situation is, but partly biased towards Israel because I recognize their rights to their land.
    I do however not believe Palestinians are terrorists at all, but normal people who just want a place to live, and a stable situation, I understand their anger and frustration.

    The problem is that Israel will not destroy Hamas (due to politics), which is what they need to do. They need to be deadly and ruthless and relentless, because regardless the MSM will attack them.
