    I think the IDF will do their job, just not sure it's the right job or the right time.

    Yea, a few kids I knew from Miami who are Israeli citizens are now in the IDF. The e-mails I have gotten from them are fraught with worry, uncertainity and doubt. What worries me is that, having dealt with the settlers, they realize violence could very well happen against them or others. They are dealing with religious zealots of the second order, one step behind the suicide bombers and terrorists of Islam.

    Not a joke. There will probably be Jewish extremists-though I'd be surprised if they would kill IDF. On the other hand, I would guess a given that Hamas and others will also be around...

    As one disgusting Pakistani remarked yesterday in a bar when the coverage about Gaza was on, "hamas,fatah and islamic jihad can rest this week, the jews will be doing Allah's work for us"

    Tried to rep, this is the case, exactly.

    i held my tongue mostly because i was with female company, but i appreciated how she (a hindu) reproached him for his remark, then took it a step further and threw in some indian pride, "That is why we will be one of the great nations of the world and pakistan will be a backwater nightmare with nuclear weapons, IDIOT!"

    People often forget that the bloodiest, worst fighting in the Islamic world in modern history was not in Sudan, Algeria or Iraq, but Kashmir... the muslims vs. the hindus in a bloody tit for tat campaign that continues on a smaller scale now but could erupt into something horrific at any time.

    Not a joke. I am ever surprised at India's tolerance of 'modern' Pakistan. I guess there is no choice.

    Yea no choice with nukes involved. I feel sorry for the Indians, the Pakistanis are a 100 ton ball and chain tied to their leg no matter how high they climb, almost like a perverse mirror image of China's Taiwan problem.

    If Pakistan was Taiwan, I think India would have dealt with. Pakistan is too large and too Muslim.
