"Palestinians were Massacred at Jenin Refuge Camp. Every day modern F-16 flies over Ramallah and bombing schools, hospital even at the mosque and church.Lebanon was attack twice. Thousands of women, children left dead. A simple man who came back after visiting tel aviv and ramallah, can say who is suppressing who."

In a few concise sentences you summarized all the blood libels and lies of the Palestinian-Arab-Muslim propaganda machinery against the Jewish State.

You just forgot to mention that this Jewish State, Israel, is under constant unprovoked terrorist attacks by Arab Muslim fanatics since even before its establishment in 1948. With its establishment in 1948, Israel was attacked also by all its Arab neighbor states several times in all out wars, with the sole purpose to destroy it and to kill its Jewish population. The Arabs did never even try to conceal their murderous objectives, just like their recent big hero Ahmadinejad is also very candid about them.

All Israeli attempts to appease its Arab enemies without committing suicide, were answered with more demands and more deliberate murderous terrorist attacks against peaceful innocent civilians.

On this background you slyly dare to accuse Israel of "bombing schools, hospital even at the mosque and church." You just forgot to mention that those schools, hospitals, mosques, and churches are attacked only when they are used as hiding places for the terrorists.

While these terrorists are deliberately targeting crowded places with innocent civil populations, if as a result of Israeli preemptive actions there happen to be also civil casualties among the Arabs, it is certainly never done deliberately; It is rather the result of Arab terrorist tactic to use civilians, and whenever possible children, as human shields.
