    RAFAH, (PIC)-- A group of Palestinian resistance fighters survived an Israeli air raid on their position to the east of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, on Saturday, local sources said.

    They told the PIC reporter that Israeli army choppers fired two missiles at the resistance fighters in Shuka area east of Rafah.

    The sources said that the helicopter gunships continued to chase the fighters after they fled the scene and fired a number of missiles at them five minutes after the first raid but they also managed to escape unharmed.

    I see resistance fighters ... what are the planning in the resistance ?
    Were they meeting to discuss how it is best to lunch resistance rockets on Israel or were they just talking about their plan to do a resistance suicide bombing ... I'm getting confused.

    They are resisting the occupation of their country that they have every legal right to do.

    It is Israel's war. It can stop it any time it wants.

    How exactly are they occupied ? Is there Israeli soldiers stationed in Gaza ? Gaza has it's own government.

    Please refer me to the country Israel is occupying.
    Also add a quote of a law stating it is legal to to try and harm a civilian population.

    Not true, It was proven that any country that wants peace with Israel can get it.
    Israel gave up territories to make peace with Egypt.
    Peace with Jordan was also achieved.

    If the Palestinians (I don't really think that all Palestinians so I'm talking about their leadership) didn't what war, there would be peace today.

    Israel have nothing to gain from this conflict.

    This is confusing to a lot of people because we have been misled.

    We have all heard the story. The UN partitioned Palestine. The Zionists accepted their state but the Arabs did not. The Arabs attacked the new state of Israel and lost. Israel won land in a defensive war.

    Isn't that what you heard?

    The problem is that the story is not true.

    You said Israel is occupying their country, and failed to say what country is that.
    You said that "resistance" fighters engage in legal activities, but failed to say under what law.

    In addition you now challenge well known historical facts.

    The State of Palestine was created and its borders defined by the League of Nations in 1922. This is similar to most of the other countries that were created out of the defunct Ottoman Empire.

    Resolution 181 was a General Assembly resolution recommending that the Security Council implement a partition plan.

    The Security Council decided to not implement the plan. Resolution 181 was a dead issue. It created no partition, created no states, defined no borders, and transferred no land.

    There Has Never Been a Sovereign Arab State in Palestine (not in 1922 nor anytime else)


    The artificiality of a Palestinian identity is reflected in the attitudes and actions of neighboring Arab nations who never established a Palestinian state themselves.

    The Arabs never established a Palestinian state when the UN in 1947 recommended to partition Palestine, and to establish “an Arab and a Jewish state” (not a Palestinian state, it should be noted). Nor did the Arabs recognize or establish a Palestinian state during the two decades prior to the Six-Day War when the West Bank was under Jordanian control and the Gaza Strip was under Egyptian control; nor did the Palestinian Arabs clamor for autonomy or independence during those years under Jordanian and Egyptian rule.

    "The artificiality of a Palestinian identity" is Israeli propaganda. Israel has always denied the existence of Palestine and the Palestinians. Israeli citizens who have Palestine as the place of birth on their birth certificates are called Arabs by Israel. Why would they do that?

    Irrelevant. Resolution 181 didn't happen.

    Not true. The PLO was formed in 1964 from Palestinian groups who had been attacking the Israeli occupation during the 1950s.
