Quoting khigh:" After 24 hours, they have to open the borders and let people go across. That includes the border with ... [snip!] ... fire, though. Egypt is a Hamas loving, Muslim Brotherhood controlled country and all for Palistenian warfare against Israel."

Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" <blockquote><b>Quoting MysticWitchKat:</b>" Neither side is innocent in this conflict ... [snip!] ... dropping leaflets...after warning via TV. Israel isn't blameless but hey when backed into a corner, that dog is going to bite!"The same could be said for the palestinians however.
Quoting SpaceCowgirl:" <blockquote><b>Quoting MysticWitchKat:</b>" Neither side is innocent in this conflict ... [snip!] ... Yeah, how dare those Jews defend themselves. They should just wave the white flag and let others blow them off the map, right?"Why not,they took land that didn't belong to them in the first place. And have not exactly been very conciliatory in forging a reaslitic peace.
Quoting Mary.:" ahhh ok. I want to learn more about the history of this conflict. "It goes back to the ending days of ww1 essentially when the ottoman empire crumbled and other countries took control over arabian provinces. The issue essentially came to a head because of a un mandate for forge a jewish state there after ww2. The biggest issue being that jews at the time made up a small minority in palestine yet were promised a larger portion of land. So while I don't agree with how they utilize attacking civilins, or suicide bombers. I can understand when the palestinians have never been too rosy towards israel.
Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" <blockquote><b>Quoting MysticWitchKat:</b>" Why not,they took land that didn't belong ... [snip!] ... goal (among many, maniacal others) is to take it from Israel. Do you know the complete history? It seems like you don't."How would you feel if a foreign country invaded you and sat on your land? It's amusing how if they same thing happened in america the same actions would be deemed patriotism. However when other countries do it, it is deemed terrorism. A thin line separating them no? Jerusalems importance is rooted in then prophets ascension. Don't mistake me I don't agree with their methods, but I also don't see Israel as the innocent bystander who does zero wrong either.
