    Default Israel's military mobilizes for a ground invasion of the Gaza strip

    "After Palestinian rockets struck near Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as neighboring Egypt escalated its own war of words against Israel."
    The Middle East is a fucking mess.

    Wouldn't it be crazy if an insignificant piece of dirt led to conflagration?
    Personally, if i were Palestinian, I'd be fighting. If I were Israeli, I'd have exterminated the Palestinians in the 1960s, when 'mass unmarked graves' were still relatively cool.

    Israel pisses me off. It is an aberration in the region. If America cared about the Jews so much then ship them all to Texas and be done with this nonsense.

    I hope they burn this phoney idea of the Palestinian state to the fucking ground. The bastards don't deserve anything. Go Israel, defend your land!

    Besides the Palestinians Israel's fiercest enemies are radical Islamists in different Muslim countries. They use Israel's existence and the Palestinian cause as a lightening rod, to advance the cause of fundamentalism in their own countries. Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Libya, and Malaysia are also enemies of Israel and Venezuela is becoming more hostile under the rule of Hugo Chavez.

    A country like the U.S. who is Israel's biggest supporter becomes by proxy an enemy to these countries, as well as radical Islamists in other countries.

    It's a no win situation that can only get worse.

    This is fucking ridiculous. A decades old conflict between the Palestinians and Israel over some frigging land. If it was just them, I’d say the hell with it. Let them kill other off… who gives a shit. But no. The conflict drags in other countries, most notably the U.S., obviously an Israeli ally. By being involved, the U.S. further damages its image in the Arab world, and potentially stirs up more terrorism activity. If the world was a playground, and Israel and Palestine were a couple of fighting little boys, the world powers, like parents, would probably let them fight for a little bit. But if things got out of hand, and it threatened to spill over into something more serious, the “parents” would step in and create order.

    “Ok Tommy and Jimmy, that’s enough. Now you boys either share your toys, or learn how to play with your own toys. Tommy, you stay on your side of the room and Jimmy, you stay in yours. Now not a peep out of either of you!”

    If Israel and the Arabs want to squabble over every little detail… let them. It’s technically none of our business. But if the conflict threatens to escalate and turn into full-scale war, then intervene. But again, this intervention would ideally come from an international consortium of nations with power. If NATO or the UN had some balls and real power, they could step in and say… “Ok now this is how we’re going to resolve this problem once and for all.” And a settlement would be reached and enforced.

    I know I know… this is all fantasy. But isn’t it tiresome to have two countries going at it on and off for decades on end, for the same fucking reasons? Don’t these idiots have the capability to resolve their differences diplomatically? Again... it's no one elses business if they can't... but the escalation usually ends up threatening world peace. What a crock of shit.

    Palestine & Israel make up most of the "Holy Land", no telling how fucked up things in that region would be, if it weren't for that.

    Here we go again. There will not be peace in the Middle East. Its not happening. Israel has a total right to defend itself but it always does so under a media spotlight and militarily proceeds to hammer a sewing needle with a steel mallet. Calatarol damage aka dead civilians is a recruiting poster. They need "insurgents" of their own, small teams off the grid. Its far beyond land today. Its ideology and history that cannot be undone.

    Why is it Israeli land? Going by that logic you should really return your lands to the natives and get your arse back to old Blighty.

    Defending oneself does not mean taking over a house, using up all the best rooms, and keeping the pesky Arabs who own the house in the cellar. We call that illegal occupation.

    The settlements are illegal and this view is near unanimous in the international community. It is illegal occupation. Personal pronouns are not significant.

    Again you whilst thinking deludingly that you are a sensitive caring human being use inflammatory language and refer to human beings like a commodity. Your own reasoning is much closer to a final solution than many of the pro Nazi groups you supposedly despise. "The Jews" and "The State of Israel " are not the same thing.

    The Israelis think they're right in their own mind, and that they're just defending themselves and their country. In all likelihood, the Palestinians think the same thing. It's beyond any of our capabilities to judge who's right and who's wrong in a conflict that has raged on for many decades. This is why a strong, powerful, global mediation/peacekeeping organization is in order. Single countries which enter the conflict on one side or the other are viewed as antagonistic by the other side. And these interventions invariably bring consequences.

    It is easy to judge who is right and wrong when you consider who is occupying land and building settlements. Have Israel and have Palestine following the 1967 borders and then you won't have any of this pushing and shoving. The world agrees that this is the solution and it is on the record that Israel and its godfather are against settling the issue legally.
