this message is to all that believe israeli are victims of anything. First of all, the palestinians were one of the original nations in the middle east, along with Asyrians, Babylonians(Iraq), and Canaans(jews), etc. Jews feel that they are entitled to their lands because of religious reasons. How can they expect the palestinians, nor anyone else to respect their religious claim to their lands when they don't respect the palestinian claims to their rightful religious territory. also, i bet most "outsiders" don't realize that the jewish people are to blame for the most recent rash of terrorism between the two peoples in 1994 when an israeli citizen killed 29 musims attending mosque, while on their knees praying to the same god the jews pray to. A lone jewish gunman armed with 105 bullets in an AK-47 stormed the mosque in the palestinian territory. less than a month lator, suicide bombings was born. If I get in a street fight and get hit in the nose first, I am going to do whatever it takes to make the aggresor wish he hadn't done that by "defending" myself. when you aren't allowed to have a nation, government and military, you have to do what you have to do. these people who are willing to be suicide bombers aren't suicidal, they are just men who are forbidden to work or has a family that is homeless or both, something. these suicide bombers are simply fed up. they have no other option of fighting back. the world can't see their pain or hear their cries any other way because of israeli censored media. Finally, perhaps, the most lethal, destroying, and terrorising network in the world is the Israeli military. if you read other newspapers from outside the US media, you will hear much more of the truth. If you are interesting in knowing the truth, you should be willing to hear both sides, or you shouldon't have an opinion because it is clearly biased. www.naharnet.com is a good lebanese news source For those of you that don't believe the israeli military are terrorists, I would like to hear your definitions of terrorism. I don't see how a military sniper that kills a 13 year old boy and his 16 year old sister on a rooftop feeding pigeons and hanging out clothes to dry not terrorism. Come on, are you going to tell me he thought he was threatened by them. Also, I have seen television footage of Israeli tanks opening fire and killed a couple of 7 or 8 year old kids throwing rocks at the israeli tanks, while in palestinian territory. these kids didn't go to jerusalem and start throwing rocks at them, these palestinian kids were outside their homes in the streets. Israel again was simply murdering and terrorising. What would you do if these were your kids and you had no home to go to nor a job to go work.
