1. What will the WORLD

demand from Israel after this whole thing is over with? "After all we helped you pressure you OWE us!" Who knows? Perhaps the owing was already given in advance. ISRAEL SHOULD REFUSE TO PURSUE PEACE WITH NON-ENTITIES!
2. France should take the lead - demand Pals return to talks
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (09.19.11)
If violence breaks out, the blame lies square on the shoulders of the PLO and Hamas. The PLO (aka Fatah) refuses to negotiate peace and cannot make peace with Hamas. Hamas refuses to make peace, and cannot make peace with Fatah. The Pallies discovered an easy solution to their problems. Instead of negotiating with Israel, or even worse, making peace with themselves, they can bypass the process and go straight to the dictators and despots club: the UN. Their fellow dictators and fools will grant them "nationhood", despite the fact that both Fatah and Hamas claim they are the government, and despite the fact that "Palestine" is really two countries: Fatahstan in the west bank and Hamastan in Gaza. However, there are too many bleeding heart politically correct politicians in the world who have not time (and possibly not enough brains) to bother investigating for themselves, and they actually believe the crap that the Palestinians tell them.
3. Just historical&geographical perspective: BIG ISRAEL needed.

4. It's funny
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (09.19.11)
Back in 1992 there was no chance whatsoever of war because Israel was so strong and PLO was so weak. Because there was no chance of war, Rabin embarked on the adventure called the "Peace Process". Thanks to the "Peace Process" thousands have died, we are further from peace then ever before, and now even Juppe realizes we are on the verge of a very bloody war. To call the "Peace Process" a mistake is an understatement.
5. But...the ME is already in a "violent outbreak".
Harry Wright ,   UK   (09.19.11)
It is not on the verge, it is in the midst of. One state after the other, violence! Horrific violence in Syria and Libya right now! There is one big difference! Israel has the means to defend itself. Another difference is the violence of Arabs killing each other is not problematic. BUT if Israelis kill an Arab while defending themselves, THAT is problematic for Juppe and the whole of Europe. Enough of this hypocrisy. The terrible ME psyche that western leaders were so diligently hiding is now being laid bare and they are not comfortable with that at all. They thought that by appeasement and suppression of reality and truth, they could keep things under control and now Abbas is confronting them and showing his true colours. They don't know how to deal with that. He took all their money and goodwill and won't even play ball with them now but rather, he is slapping them down.
6. And countries like France made sure it would happen
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (09.19.11)
Because countries like France have done nothing but pressure us to make concessions to a terrorist entity without getting anything in return that terrorist entity has launched tens of thousands of attacks against us and now thinks that they can get the world to aid them in their final push for genocide.
7. YES! Thanks to France.
