    How do you define a "peace-activist"?

    The last thing Israel wants is to make a peace deal with the Palestinians.

    Because Israel would finally have to declare formal set borders.

    And the money and weapons from the U.S. for Israel's protection would dry up. :cool:

    It looks like Sunni man is admitting that Israel needs protection from his oh so peaceful Muslim brethren who want to destroy Israel. No doubt those Muslims born to the faith or converts like Sunni Man salivate over the idea of Israel being destroyed.

    When arabs fire rockets - it's truce; when they get paid in kind - it's a breach of truce, of course.

    The battle between Israel and Gaza solves nothing

    All the violence in Gaza and Israel will do is sow hatred in the hearts of yet another generation

    by johnathan friedland, an English jewish journalist...the guardian

    Start with Hamas. One reading assumes that Hamas was punished for its weakness, that it had proved itself no longer capable of reining in the more bellicose groups – Islamic Jihad and others – which operate on the territory it rules. The Haaretz editor, Aluf Benn, put that view starkly when he wrote that far from being a feared enemy, Israel's Osama bin Laden, Ja'abari was Israel's "subcontractor" in Gaza, charged with enforcing the de facto truce. When he stopped doing his job, he had to be removed: "The message was simple and clear: You failed – you're dead," wrote Benn, quoting a favourite saying of defence minister Ehud Barak: "In the Middle East there is no second chance for the weak."

    But it's equally possible that this was no accidental escalation by Hamas, born of incompetence, but rather an act of strength by the Islamist movement. A senior Israeli official told me that Israel had long been aware of Hamas's burgeoning military capacity, its hoard of rockets growing – before Wednesday – to some 11,000, closing on the 15,000-strong arsenal amassed by Hezbollah on the eve of 2006's Lebanon war. Much of this arms supply had come from newly lawless Libya – a "goldmine" says the official – the rest from Iran, before relations between Tehran and Hamas cooled. (Iran was angered when Gaza's rulers broke from Tehran's number one ally, the Assad regime.) Hamas's arm is now more muscled and with a longer reach, as it graphically demonstrated last night, when rockets landed perilously close to Israel's central city, Tel Aviv – the first missiles to do so since the Gulf war of 1991.
