Israel takes out top Hamas commander after missiles launched from Gaza

The Palestinian attacks are "terrorist attacks"

The Israeli attacks are "military actions"

So what if way more innocent people are killed by the Irealis. They put a nice official spin on it.

The powerful Jewish voting and lobbying groups in the US keep The Gov squarly in Israels corner no matter what.

Land grabs still don't justify lobbing rockets over and over at civilians who had nothing to do with anything. You will never justify those attacks on israel to me. The palestinian fighters embed themselves with civilians and target civilians purposely which is terrorism. If Israel wanted to kill the Palestinian civilians purposely they could have easily done so to all of them.

To me this is more about one culture grabbing at straws and making excuses to try and destroy another. If Israel gave up some land i believe the attacks would still continue and that the terrorists would follow the israelis even if they moved.This isn't about land. It's about the destruction of Israel.

Saying at this point that Israel should sit there and do nothing while rockets fly over is absurd. No matter what history says. As well as any implication that the Israeli civilians somehow deserve to be terrorized is idiotic. Israelis didn't put the Palestinians in such a horrible state. The Islamic ideology that ruins nearly every islamic state and uncontrollable militias do that far better than Israel ever could.

At some point the Palestinian people have to stop and only then I may see Israel as the aggressor. But I don't believe that will ever happen. Because it seems the Palestinians have already been deeply rooted by hate, all the way down to their children. Who's ultimate goal is only to grow up and destroy Israel, passed down to them by their parents.

Every culture has had land grabbed from them at some point. But this to me is as much to do about land as much as 9/11 was a false flag op. Islam isn't a culture which only has problems with Israel, one only has to look around the world to see the problem. How many Islamic states are living in peaceful harmony during this day in age?

That is all I have to say.

The Dier Yassin Massacre

Early in the morning of Friday, April 9, 1948, commandos of the Irgun, headed by Menachem Begin, and the Stern Gang attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. It was several weeks before the end of the British Mandate. The village lay outside of the area that the United Nations recommended be included in a future Jewish State. Deir Yassin had a peaceful reputation and was even said by a Jewish newspaper to have driven out some Arab militants. But it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and one plan, kept secret until years afterwards, called for it to be destroyed and the residents evacuated to make way for a small airfield that would supply the beleaguered Jewish residents of Jerusalem.

By noon over 100 people, half of them women and children, had been systematically murdered. Four commandos died at the hands of resisting Palestinians using old Mausers and muskets. Twenty-five male villagers were loaded into trucks, paraded through the Zakhron Yosef quarter in Jerusalem, and then taken to a stone quarry along the road between Givat Shaul and Deir Yassin and shot to death. The remaining residents were driven to Arab East Jerusalem.

That evening the Irgunists and the Sternists escorted a party of foreign correspondents to a house at Givat Shaul, a nearby Jewish settlement founded in 1906. Over tea and cookies they amplified the details of the operation and justified it, saying Deir Yassin had become a concentration point for Arabs, including Syrians and Iraqis, planning to attack the western suburbs of Jerusalem. They said that 25 members of the Haganah militia had reinforced the attack and claimed that an Arabic-speaking Jew had warned the villagers over a loudspeaker from an armored car. This was duly reported in The New York Times on April 10.

A final body count of 254 was reported by The New York Times on April 13, a day after they were finally buried. By then the leaders of the Haganah had distanced themselves from having participated in the attack and issued a statement denouncing the dissidents of Irgun and the Stern Gang, just as they had after the attack on the King David Hotel in July 1946. A 1987 study undertaken by Birzeit University's Center for Research and Documentation of Palestinian Society found "the numbers of those killed does not exceed 120".

The Haganah leaders admitted that the massacre "disgraced the cause of Jewish fighters and dishonored Jewish arms and the Jewish flag." They played down the fact that their militia had reinforced the terrorists' attack, even though they did not participate in the barbarism and looting during the subsequent "mopping up" operations.

They also played down the fact that, in Begin's words, "Deir Yassin was captured with the knowledge of the Haganah and with the approval of its commander" as a part of its "plan for establishing an airfield."

Ben Gurion even sent an apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan. But this horrific act served the future State of Israel well. According to Begin:

  • Arabs throughout the country, induced to believe wild tales of "Irgun butchery," were seized with limitless panic and started to flee for their lives. This mass flight soon developed into a maddened, uncontrollable stampede. The political and economic significance of this development can hardly be overestimated.

Of about 144 houses, 10 were dynamited. The cemetery was later bulldozed and, like hundreds of other Palestinian villages to follow, Deir Yassin was wiped off the map. By September, Orthodox Jewish immigrants from Poland, Rumania, and Slovakia were settled there over the objections of Martin Buber, Cecil Roth and other Jewish leaders, who believed that the site of the massacre should be left uninhabited. The center of the village was renamed Givat Shaul Bet. As Jerusalem expanded, the land of Deir Yassin became part of the city and is now known simply as the area between Givat Shaul and the settlement of Har Nof on the western slopes of the mountain.

The massacre of Palestinians at Deir Yassin is one of the most significant events in 20th-century Palestinian and Israeli history. This is not because of its size or its brutality, but because it stands as the starkest early warning of a calculated depopulation of over 400 Arab villages and cities and the expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinian inhabitants to make room for survivors of the Holocaust and other Jews from the rest of the world

The Palestinians are stuck with using the same tactics the Israeli's used against the British .. of course, when the Jew's used such tactics, they were hailed proudly as "freedom fighters" .. so I guess if you allow 6 million of your peoples to be exterminated, you can justify any kind of action for ever after? ..

The "God" they so fiercely profess to believe in must be very disappointed .. I know I am .. imprison a people in a cage and then kill them when they fight back? .. this is so damn wrong ..

Considering what pushes the Israel economy, they're about due for some major military intervention in 3, 2, 1..

All I see is constant Palestinian aggression. Maybe that's why the world does nothing.

If Palestine was the sole aggressor, Israel would wipe them out and certainly be justified.

However, 2 reasons why they won't:

- Their defence based economy stays strong keeping Israelis under paranoia of rocket attacks.

- Justifies slow expansion of Israel into the rest of Palestine (particularly in WB) while limiting uproar by Arab nations.

The situation isn't as simple as Palestinians are evil, Israel is merely defending itself. Logic dictates the conflict is perpetuated by both sides.

Until the Palestinians are given "something to live for" this constant violence will continue .. it takes the very patience of Job to accept this as being inevitable .. as soon as the EU and the rest of the "thinking world" recognize a Palestinian State, we amy be on the road to some solution ..

Most of the EU and the world already does recognize an independent Palestinian state:

The thing about being a state is that the privilege also comes with responsibility. IE if you fund militant groups and declare war against your neighbour, expect them to respond.

"Official" recognition and some aid in purging elements of Al-queda and others may be a step in the right direction .. status quo is not working very well ..
