I know that there are arabs that want peace, but I see something more than this under the surface. Israel could give up land, and bend over backwards and there would still be this conflict because whatever Israel would do would never be enough......because of the hatred for them and the Arab world wanting their total destruction...... Why do you think they get kicked?????

Many people who have visited Israel and Gaza have said that first the conflict starts with Palestinian Stone throwers at the IDF, then they send Qasam Rockets in, for the sole purpose of creating havoc and trying to kill Jews. I'm sorry you people lost this argument many moons ago, and people recognize hatred and anti-semetism when they see it. Oh I know you say look at your damage and I believe you, but look what they do to provoke!

If Hamas and the Arabs would learn to behave themselves these things wouldn't happen. I am sorry for the innocent people, and I am also sorry that there is this conflict.......Something different needs to occur, but it never will because Arabs can't get past their hatred.......You should read Wallid Shoebat's book, "Why I left Jihad." It is the most profound, honest and courageous opinion I have ever seen yet from a man who used to be in Yasser Arafat's Fatah terror group! I challenge you, Read it and tell me what you think. Shoebat talks about his experiences.

p. 15. under I Was A terrorist. I was suppposed to use the bomb-- an explosive charge hidden in a loaf of bread--to blow up the Bank Leumi branch in Bethlehem.... Mahmoud helped me smuggle it with the aid of the muslim Wakf religious police on the Temple Mount so I could enter one of the world's holy places...He goes on about entering the temple mount with explosives.......What kind of people do these things?????
