3. all of hamas is in range of every single israeli weapon
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (08.31.10)
even if hamas digs their little holes in the ground to hide in, israel has some special bunker busting calling cards to remind them that israel cares for terrorists. go ahead hamas and fire your aimless rockets. you will get a reply, a VERY DIRECT reply.

D, Banai ,   Beersheva, Israel   (08.31.10)

Bat Zion ,   Centre, Israel   (08.31.10)
defend it's citizens. Gazans will scream "gewald" and that will be the end of it.
7. Logic
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (08.31.10)
So Israel brought in foreign Arabs educated to hate Jews, armed these Arabs, and then ethnically cleansed Jews from their homes so that the Arabs would have control of land. The crazy Right-wing fanatics said that these steps would endanger Israel and shouldn't be done. The smart Left-wingers said that these steps were good, and even if the Arabs were to attack, Israel could defend itself. Thanks to Goldstone, IHH and Fajar-5, we see that the Left-wing was correct! The logical conclusion is that we must ethnically cleanse more land from Jews, and give the Arabs more land to control. Netanyahu, I hope you read this article.
8. :: Israel’s failed policies
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (08.31.10)
Yep depriving the citizens of basic food types, medical equipment, children’s toys, musical instruments etc really made Israel more secure. Clearly Israel’s ‘blockade’ of Gaza and its collective punishment of the civilian population of Gaza has utterly failed. The only way to stop Hamas and other militant groups is to make peace with the Palestinians (ie: Fatah) and allow the Palestinians to build their own independent and sovereign nation. Then and only then will Hamas et al be deprived of their powerbase. Only the Palestinians themselves can counter Hamas and they will only do so if they have a strong enough reason to stop the armed resistance ie: if they see the militant groups endangering the established nation state of Palestine.
9. Maybe the leftists will think at last under the guillotine's
aviG   (08.31.10)
knife ??? (like Daniel PEARL ...) And remember that they are also jews, as Hitler made it clear to the leftists of the time in Germany !!!
10. #8 good points
Joseph ,   Israel   (08.31.10)
So you are saying that the corrupt Kadima under Olmert with the collaboration of the Labor Party under Barak, again failed by imposing this blockade. Maybe Olmert and Barak get a cut of the smuggling costs?
11. I will provide Hamas with The Artist's homes coordinates, re
tom ,   tel aviv   (08.31.10)
12. to #8 lol hamas didn't made peace with Fatah
ghostq   (08.31.10)
and according to yesterday it tries to contact west bank and east jerusalem, they will try to stop it if they won't managed to stop Israel their next mark would be Fatah, civil war and palis as usuall will blame Israel but we all know palis r the only reason they r in this situation.
13. It might come as a surprise to you, "Matty"
Robert Haymond ,   Israel/Canada   (08.31.10)
but not only does the Hamas charter invoke the principle of the destruction of the "Zionist state" but so does the Fatah New Charter which clearly states as one of its purposes, to destroy the Zionist economic, political and military systems as well as its culture.
stude ham   (08.31.10)
will the world now cheer thios poor bedraggled refugee swamp over its major advances in terrorism potential? this anti-israel world is very sick and dangerous.
15. In real time Israel always seems to..
Joey Rose ,   Portland   (08.31.10)
figure out a way to overcome the odds. It's nothing a full-blown invasion of Gaza would'nt cure. The 'Cast Lead" type operations are only temporary solutions.
16. Perfect ballance
peter vojta ,   czech republic   (08.31.10)
80 km for Hamas /guided by wind/ rockets....8000 km for israels /guided by satelite/ nuclear rockets.... Perfect balance - Israeli version peter czech

The "collective punishment" issue thrown at Israel seems to indicate that you are unfamiliar with the recent history of the conflict.After having been subjected to suicide bombings and thousands of rockets,mortars and othe missiles launched against the Jewish State,the Israelis are not supposed to defend themselves against these horrifying attacks,which have killed many Israelis - Jewish and non-Jewish.You ought to walk,run or drive to the nearest library to familiarize yourself with the background of the 62 year war against the Jewish State.
18. #8; Matty, Maybe, maybe not
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (08.31.10)
I'd like to think you are correct, but, frankly I'm not sure? To the normal thinking person, you would think yea, that's probably true. But it might be, just as possible, that Hamas would be emboldened to attack Israel anyway. Even after they get a nation. Hamas rules with an iron fist, they kill their opponents. Who can stand up to Hamas? Hamas uses their own people as human sheilds. I have to believe some of those people don't want Hamas firing a rocket from their front lawn. But Hamas does it anyway. The common man on the street can't stop Hamas from being the bullies that they are, but I hope you are right.
19. #8 Matty Groves
Moshe of Rockville ,   Rockville,MD USA   (08.31.10)
Your concern for the safety and comfort of the Gazans is understandable. It is too bad you lack such concern for Israel.However,Israel has supplied to Hamas ruled Gaza over one million tons of food,50,000 tons of cooking gas, and nearly 140 million liters of fuel over the past 18 months ending in June. Such provisioning of an enemy state,whose objective is the destruction of Israel and elimination of its people according to its charter, public statements and actions of its supporters is quite unusual in warfare.Maybe it is because its opponent is the Jewish State.
20. #8 - too bad even Gazans dispute your claim
William ,   Israel   (09.01.10)
hence, the reason future flotillas are largely unsupported by global community and world leaders. Hell, even the IHH ship had nothing of any real value in its hull because Gazans were already receiving those items regularly. The real assessment is this - how many weapons were STOPPED by this blockade? Well, we know the level that was smuggled in before the blockade and it was much, much higher. The blockade works and will be in place until Hamas ends their terror war.
21. russia has equal right to help Syria Hizbulah RIGHT ???
M. S. ,   mpls america   (09.01.10)
I realize the double standard Israeli leaders deploy only hurts Israel to act like a J*wish cry baby over weapons sales to Syria by Russia is the most cowardly act possible they have a right to arm Syria if America supplys weapons to Israel the idea one 1 may have weapons the other may not is against all morale principle of fair play Israel threatens Syria Syria has a right to self defense Israel wants to be a North Viet Nam wants Syria to be a South Viet Nam that is not right I hope Israeli leaders stop being cry babys realize both sides have a right to self defense that is only just if we want the wortd to respect us not go runing to Russia like a 6 year old cry baby because Abdulah wants a gun RIGHT look what it did they killed 4 Israelis in the West Bank to show how cowardly the actions of Barack and so Netanyahu are Arabs do not respect J*wish cowards no body should grow up Barack Netanyahu be a man RIGHT ??? Thank You... M. S.
