All I see is language, one side (Israel) has control of the language used to describe events.
Who is the aggressor here?? Did some Palestinians get on a plane and decided to take over a country?? They are boxed in THIER land, sealed off from the outside world.
Dont have the audacity to compare kids throwing stones, and a couple of suicide bombers to a nation that has the 2nd best armed forces in the world, while receiving all the latest military technology.
I want see some stats comparing Israeli deaths and Palestinian and lets see which side killed more people, Israel also invaded Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt, no other Arab country EVER attacked Israel until 1973.
Bastin, I would love to see your reaction if Britain was invaded and you decided you were not going to collaborate, for others around the world who dont even understand what is going on, to describe you as terrorist and say that the invader has bent over backward to accommodate you.
I only wrote this post, because I don’t believe you are ignorant or unintelligent, I know you are smart enough to seek the truth, and stop letting the media influence how you see events.
Do you think those guys that use their body as weapons do it for a dare?? Or maybe is a joke between friends. No, they see it as the only solution, somehow Israel looks at the actual fact of the carnage, not the root causes behind it.
The Jews were supposed to flee Hitler’s oppression, so how comes they are oppressing people and kicking them out of their land making them refugees. I see a repeat of what Hitler was up in the inter-war years, and we are turning a blind eye for almost 50 years.
I don’t think anyone saw a Palestinian complaining or any issue related to them until 1948, somehow the way language is used it seems those Palestinians were like this since the beginning of time :rollani:
Be objective and have empathy with both sides, I know Israelis dont want to live with the constant fear of suicide bombers, they know the solution, they just need to get cracking and make a deal.
Arafat is not around this time, there is no excuse
