Do you believe that the Palestinians likewise have the right to defend themselves? Orrex Nov 2012 #41
If they're attacked, yes glacierbay Nov 2012 #45
I would be interested to hear whether they think they've been attacked Orrex Nov 2012 #50
Simply not true. Israel broke the ceasefire both times. Puregonzo1188 Nov 2012 #67
Maybe they wouldn't feel the need to defend themselves arikara Nov 2012 #86
I agree with that Ash_F Nov 2012 #42

Then at least we have some common ground. Ash_F Nov 2012 #51
'If you were Palestinian living in Israel, you would not be allowed to live with your Jewish wife' King_David Nov 2012 #96
You can do your own research. Ash_F Nov 2012 #98
Well it's bullshit King_David Nov 2012 #101

Chomsky is to the "Left" what Rush Limbaugh is to the "Right". nt AdHocSolver Nov 2012 #39
Chomsky and Limbaugh names should not be put into the same sentence. crunch60 Nov 2012 #58
Yes. I recall watching Chomsky physically mocking Parkinson's symptoms Crunchy Frog Nov 2012 #92
Here's another brilliant idea. Stop terrorizing Gaza and Hamas will stop rockets like they have done Puregonzo1188 Nov 2012 #65

Hamas is attacking. Israel must respond. Andy Stanton Nov 2012 #14
I agree. Hamas is to blame for all this. rollin74 Nov 2012 #16
I remember how angry Mexico was when Texans started forcibly settling south of the border Orrex Nov 2012 #17
Hamas hides behind civilians Andy Stanton Nov 2012 #19
There is indeed a double standard here, but it's not what you probably think Orrex Nov 2012 #21
Not carte blanche eyl Nov 2012 #82
So if a member of Hamas is in a city, Israel can bomb the shit out of that city with impunity? Orrex Nov 2012 #94
When has Israel targeted a school bus? former9thward Nov 2012 #109

And the reason that Israealis are killed is because of Israelis Orrex Nov 2012 #117
If a group in Mexico started firing in rockets on San Diego what would the U.S. do? former9thward Nov 2012 #118
Why do people keep using that ridiculous and invalid analogy? Orrex Nov 2012 #119
Your "analogy" is completely devoid of ny similarity to the Gaza-Israel situation. former9thward Nov 2012 #120
I'm sure that you believe that, just like you apparently believe you're rational Orrex Nov 2012 #121
“May your children die, you dogs”: As Gaza burns, Israelis bay for blood in streets of Tel Aviv fingrinn Nov 2012 #68
