1. Well, they threw stones
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.15.13)
We threw bullets. There is a message in that somewhere. I'll tell you where. Don't try to ply your terrorist trade in the State of Israel or against the Jewish people and you will be just fine. Violate that simple principle, and live -- or, as the case may be -- die with the consequences. This isn't a game. This is all about protecting the Jewish people. Ignore the rules to your peril. This isn't about a mere border crossing; it is about an ILLEGAL attempt to cross a border. Ask yourself what would happen if you attempted to cross a border illegally anywhere else in the world, and you will have your answer. Warning was issued, and was ignored. Tough nuggies. Stay away from the border, and you'll be just fine. Ignore the warnings, and you will meet the same fate that thousands have met in attempting to cross the border into the United States and any number of countries. Want to castigate Israel? Fine. First, castigate the United States, that exercised deadly force against nearly two thousand individuals who attempted to illegally cross the border from Mexico into the United States. Israel has not used deadly force against anywhere near that number of individuals. So -- let's hear criticism of United States border policies first, okay?

"that exercised deadly force against nearly two thousand individuals who attempted to illegally cross the border from Mexico into the United States" Do you have any proof to back up this silly claim or is it just another brain fart of yours?

Sarah is just pointing out that the world uses a different yardstick when measuruing Israel when all countries should be held to the same standard. There is nothing un-American about that.
7. To: No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.15.13)
Just google something along the lines of "gun smuggling along the Mexican border" and "drug smuggling along the Mexican border" and work it out for yourself. You might even discover that the United States Border Patrol maintains a "shoot to kill" policy. No warning shots fired. The United States' border with Mexico is considered one of the most dangerous borders in the world, and that's saying something. But the fact that you did not know this comes as no surprise -- you are clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
8. Double Standard
JL ,   NYC   (01.16.13)
The French are worried about terrorism coming too close to their shores -- thousands of miles away in Mali -- so they bomb the place without dropping leaflets first or warning the citizens to leave the area; Israel responds to terrorism 100 feet away in Gaza and the French scream "MASSACRE!" I wonder how the rest of the world would react to someone from a known terror state trying to illegally cross into their country -- when terrorists from that other country have been responsible for thousands of prior terror attacks?
