Firing tiny rockets at the 4th largest military in the world would be INSANITY

Reader comment on item: Debate about possible war between Israel and Hamas

If the third hysterical speaker were right, those firing "home-made rockets" at the 4th largest military in the world are insane. Would I go up to a 7 ft. 300 pound boxer and punch him in the gut?

If there really were a Palestinian State dismantled by the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, let them answer these questions:

1) When was the purported Palestinian State founded?

2) What form of government did it have?

3) To which international organization did it belong?

4) What international treaty did it sign?

5) Name a nation with which it exchanged an embassy?

None of these can be answered because no such thing existed and there was nothing for the Israelis to take apart. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the setting up of the British Mandate for Palestine, the Arabs of the region generally wished to join Syria. Only after the Jews set up a state the Arabs decided that they liked the vegetables on their plates.
