Is Palestine enough of a state? This is what the International Criminal Court (ICC) must determine before it can consider charges of war crimes brought against Israel after its recent onslaught in Gaza. The scale of Israel's 22-day military attack which c

Thank you for the article, Madalena. I was not aware of this situation and it's an unusual situation to exist.

Palestine is not a state and never will be as long as its controlled by terrorists.
It's time for Hamas to tear up its charter and recognise Israel. Then meaningful negotiations can begin.What's hard to understand about that?

You really believe that Stan? You are certainly entitled to your beliefs. The israeli Jews and the US interfering with Palestinian politics got Hamas elected. Israel controls what Hamas does in case you have not figured that out! They are perfectly aware that when they cut off food and medical supplies, rockets will be fired at them! Then they can say they cut off food and medical supplies because rockets were fired at them, LOL! I've seen it time and time again! I do NOT agree with Hamas firing rockets at the Jews and I certainly don't agree with the IDF acting like modern day Nazis! Both cultures need all the weapons taken away and the US needs to quit supplying the IDF with money and weapons! Let them battle it out with hands and knives or something!

Marty thank you so much for acknowledging I'm entitled to my beliefs. That's very generous of you.
Perhaps I can enlighten you on a couple of issues. Firstly Hamas was elected because of the endemic corruption of Yasser Arafat and his cronies who stole billion,yes billions of dollars of aid intended to help his own people. It was nothing to do with Israel or the U.S.
You are obviously a mature person yet you fall into the propaganda trap of comparing the IDF with the Nazis. This is a disgusting comparison. Where are the cattle trains, the gas chambers and the crematoria?
Marty can I suggest you do your own research instead of blindly following the copy and pasters who post their evil,racist garbage on Care2 just about every day. It's almost always the same vitriolic nonsense so don't be suckered into believing it.

The world has been suckered into believing Israeli propaganda and the biased news broadcasts and press. The same sentences have been repeated ad nauseum even the same WORDS just like robots. You Stan have been brainwashed to believe that Israel can do no wrong and they are the victims.
Some of us have seen the light and see Israel for what it is.... a ruthless occupier that kills thousands of Palestinians and makes their daily life a living hell. You Stan would not like to be a Palestinian and not have any right, live in fear that at any time your life or that of your family and neighbours may cease to exist due to tanks or bombs or snipers.
Put yourself in Palestinian shoes just once and imagine your life and have some compassion for fellow human beings. Israeli apologists are so one eyed that they are losing their humanity. This is not a football game, this is life and death. And do not say the Israeli's are DEFENDING themselves as they are the ones with the weapons including nukes. So stop being so narrow and shallow as a human being. Thousands died in Gaza and only 13 Israelis 3 by friedly fire. You count the cost that is a ratio of 100:1, GET REAL !!

I don't normally respond to ignorant,rude and uninformed posts Lili but in your case I'm going to make an exception.
I suppose that your definition of "brainwashed" is anyone who doesn't agree with you. What a ridiculous assumption. Yes I'm proud to admit I'm pro Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, but I'm certainly not anti Palestinian. I regularly contribute to charities which help Palestinian refugees. When did you last contribute to an Israeli charity?
No I would not like to be a Palestinian living in Gaza because they have an awful existence due to the fact they are represented by Hamas terrorists.
I have visited most of the West bank cities and seen how well the Palestinians live there.The unfortunate inhabitants of Gaza could share the same prosperity if their leaders really wanted a genuine two state solution but, sadly, they don't. They want to destroy Israel and this isn't going to happen.
You, Lili, are part of the problem by supporting these fanatics. Try to be part of the solution and see both sides of this awful conflict.
Also please don't make assumptions about me. I can guarantee that I'm a lot more compassionate human being than you are. Time for you to take stock: more tolerance and less vitriol would be a major improvement.

"When did you last contribute to an Israeli charity?"
I paid my taxes. The welfare state of Israel receives more money from my Government then anyone else.

Squirrel,There is a big difference between taxes and charity. Taxes you have to pay, charity you choose to pay.
Are you sleeping or hibernating?

Just resting up. The fact I have not led the revolution (yet) is I assure you, charity.
