  • I will disclaim that I do not know all the facts, but I would like to assert that there are always two sides of the story when it comes to situations like this. Only history will be able to tell after it's all said & done with who was more on the side of right. Palestine is not the only victim - they have their fair share of offensive measures, killing innocent civilians.

    The whole thing is a bloody mess and will continue to be so - there can be no peace when two militant groups want exactly the same

    • I think you should look into the facts.

      The UK, Spain and other european countries has suffered from terrorism, counter-terrorism with some exceptions was handled through intelligence and the security forces - Terrorists were taken to trial rather than bombed in their beds alongside anybody living in the same area. (with the notable exception of The affair of 3 IRA suspects shot in cold blood by the SAS).

      When the UK armed forces have shot anybody - regardless of their being suspected of terrorism their is a trial and investigation.

      Isreal regards itself as above the law and rather than supporting Palestines attempts at policing itself only desteroys its prisons, security forces and undermines any moderate palestinians by choosing violence and ethnic cleansing over dialogue.

      The United States has a very blinkered view of the problem in the Middle East. Jordan, Palestine and Iraq all suffer from a lack of food and medicine. Palestine is economically crippled by the Isreali ring of steel that leaves food to rot in fields and prevents access to aid and hospitals to refugees living in shanty towns. Jordan has to tow the US party line if it wants any aid and Iraq has to sell oil on the black market to pay for food and medicine (regardless how much is spent on arms - its a pittance compared to how much African and other countries that have poverty problems spend).

      You should really look into the problem - try reading the British and Indepedant media instead of relyin on Biased US sources.
