    An Egyptian security official says Egypt has stopped a Hamas delegation returning to the Gaza Strip from carrying $9 million and 2 million Euros with them in their suitcases. The official said the group initially refused to be searched by Egyptian authorities at the Rafah border crossing.



    One member of the delegation stayed in Egypt with the money while the remaining members of the group went into Gaza. The delegation had been in Cairo for talks with Egypt about a long-term truce with Israel to end fighting in Gaza. (AP)

    they don't need to buy missiles. they have learned to make them on their own, thanks to decades of oppression and occupation.

    you don't get it do you, defenders of israel: israel occupies Palestine (illegally, just to make it clear). even the US had to go to the UN to legitimize its occupation of Iraq. i wonder how can you really defend that.

    I wonder what would it have took to let Saddam go on occupying Kuwait for 40 years.

    So you support terrorist murderers, those that purposefully target and kill women and children. Figures. Remind me how much you like it when Israel shells Lebanon after Hezbulla launches missiles into Israel then explain why it is ok for Israel to be shelled, rocketed and mortared every day but not ok for them to respond.

    Ok. So you support the occupation of a country by another. Let's go with that.

    It is ok for Israel to be shelled rocketed and mortared for the same reason it was ok to bomb Iraq when it occupied Kuwait, for the same reason it was ok for the French to bomb and kill Germans when they occupied France, and for the same reason it was ok for the Americans to attack and kill the British when they occupied the US.

    He would have had to win the war. And then it wouldn't be an occupation.

    If a nation of Palestine had ever existed, your comparisons might make some sense, but in 1948, when the UN dissolved its protectorate over the area after the Arabs had refused the offer of an Arab state, those lands west of the Jordan River that were not in the UN defined state of Israel became unincorporated territories belonging to no political entity. Today's disputed territories were captured by Jordan and Egypt in 1948 and occupied by those countries for 19 years without international recognition of any right to do so and then these lands were lost by Jordan and Egypt to Israel in 1967.

    Palestine is a slogan, not a nation, that was created as a stratagem of deceit by Arab leaders to try to prevent the creation of a tiny Jewish state of Israel by the League of Nations and later the UN, and the fact that neither Egypt nor Jordan ever recognized any inherent right of the "Palestinians" to statehood during the 19 years when they occupied the territories shows that the Arabs never took the concept of "Palestine" seriously when not using it as a pretext to attack Israel.

    To the Arabs and Iran and to some whacko western self defined enemies of Israel Palestine today is not a nation but a huge coliseum into which they thrust these hapless Arabs time after time to suffer in futile combat against an adversary they can never hope to defeat so that the Arab and Iranian peoples can cheer and scream catcalls and forget for a time that their real enemy is not Israel but their own leaders.

    Let me see if I understand you correctly.

    Just because Arab leaders are corrupt, and denied inherent rights of Palestinians that means that Israel can do that too? (Anyway Israel is slowly becoming a corrupt "Arab" regime)

    And by your logic if there is no Palestine, this leaves us with three options:
    1. Israel still is occupying parts of Jordan (West Bank) and Egypt (Gaza) - hence it is still an occupying force
    2. Israel and Palestine are one state (bi-national) - hence it is an apartheid regime
    3. Israel is so generous that it has decided to give the Palestinians a state of their own while they are attacking it - hence it is rewarding "terror"
