And after firing the mortar shells and Qassam rockets into Israeli civilian areas, they cry like little pigs when the Israelis fire back and the guys who fire the rockets hide behind their own children, making their own children the perpetrators' human shields. Scuzz buckets.

Thanks, Cal.

Hamas, hezbollah, al-qaeda, al-aqsa, 'Islamic' Jihad, Taliban, and 'Muslim' Brotherhood must be destroyed throughout the Gaza and Palestine territories so they may be considered for reconnection with Israel and the legitimate Arab nonviolent world! All members of warmongering violent mujadeen groups must be executed!

Los disparos de cohetes, son una consecuencia de la politca anti palestina de Israel, que tiene cecada gaza de tal modo que es imposible la llegada de ayuda humanitaria, la violencia genera violencia y cuando el estado de israel deje nde ostigar al estado palestino se podra alcanzar una paz que sera buena para ambo pueblos. Esperemos que en setiembre la ONU recozca formalmente al estado Palestino y que esto sea el pricipio de una duradera paz en la region

Good to see a factual account about what's happening in the Middle East than the false flag nonsense posted by an ignoramus yesterday.

The militants fight and the innocents die. And nothing is accomplished it seems. To fight just to fight without an end makes no sense to me.

It's time to take out HAMAS.

And it's time to bring GILAD SHALIT home.

Either these terrorists break the ceasefire, or they plan the next attack during the ceasefire. Maybe both. I hope there will not be any deaths.

Thanks Cal

Israel could solve this problem easily, allow a free Palestine tear down the wall.

Do you listen to the news at all Bruce? Why would Israel make it harder for it's people by letting in more rockets and terrorists? Hamas has never been able to hold a truce for more than 2 shakes of the proverbials lambs tail and we dont thing is will do so any time soon. If these terrorists mean't peace - they could start by releasing Gilead Shallit NOW.

Bruce. You obviously want to see the return of suicide bombers in Israel. If you check the facts most Palestinians don't want to have the state of Israel as their neighbour; they want to see it annihilated.

Here's the story I got on this (from

Hamas' leaders want a ceasefire, but the rank and file of their armed forces don't. Rather than follow their leaders, they stuck to their violent ideology. This should not surprise anyone: When looking at something new, people see it in terms of the contrast between it and what they know, and democracy is new to Palestinians. They, like every other new democracy in history, see it as a license to act according to their own ideologies and parties rather than the dictates of the government. They miss the fact that for a society to function, even in democracy they have to follow the laws and orders handed down by the democratically established leaders. Those militants who fired into Israel simply did what they believed was in the spirit of democracy, and refused to recognize a ceasefire to which their political leaders agreed.

This calls into question the Palestinian negotiators' power to offer peace. While the problem is vastly compounded by a central aspect of Arab culture and history, (which I will not go into unless somebody asks,) this alone is sufficient reason for the peace-process to have failed so far. In fact, looking at each of the breakdowns, this is the dominant mechanism: There is a ceasefire which is broken by Palestinians whose acts were not sanctioned by the PA. Israel treats them as though the PA had sanctioned them and walks away. Sadly, this "mistake" by Israel, which is central to the temporary breakdown, is the best it can do for the peace-process because the alternative is to recognize that the PA cannot offer peace and is therefore unqualified to be a negotiating-partner at all.

Hi Julie,

Power flows from the barrel of a gun, not the voices of the people. I understand the majority of Palestinians just want peace. Too bad that majority does not include the armed forces that keep fighting. Peace will only come when sufficient armed forces, on both sides, want it that they can effectively police those that do not. Even if 99% of Palestinians are not at all involved in the conflict, that leaves an armed force of 40,000 for Israel to handle. That is too many to treat them as normal criminals, so they are enough to spoil the situation for the rest.
