  1. Now that we've heard the pro-Israel side, lets hear another perspective:


    The media access has been all but eliminated by IDF destruction of media infrastructure. Now so reports of the massacre that Israel is raining down on Gazans will be minimized and so only their side will be seen. Typical.

    Freedom, Liberty, inherent rights, these don't depend upon your nation of origin or your ethnicity. Israel can claim "defense" all it wants, but while the war crimes they have committed are not being addressed, and the targeting of civilians, like shooting fish in a barrel continues, how can we continue to support? To understand who fired shots first in this, you have to go all the way back to 1947. Only then will you be able to understand the situation. But it goes to both sides that if you want peace, stop shooting at each other. Peace will never come from the barrel of a rifle. It comes from the human heart. But a human heart filled with hate, and you get NO peace. It will never happen. I believe that above all, Israeli's want to live in peace, so too the Gazans. But how can Israelis think peace will be possible when the have done to Gazans what was done to Jews in WWII ghettos? They know it's wrong. So while you may call for kicking some Palestinian butt, what we see is Israel committing suicide by stabbing herself repeatedly in the heart until she's mutilated beyond recognition.

    1. Simple. Who started the latest round? Case closed.
