    Indeed, the Palestinians have the right to defend themselves.

    Israel should accept the truce offered by Hamas.

    I fail to see how arbitrarily firing rockets at innocent civilians is defending oneself.

    A blockade is an act of war. Regular attacks in Gaza are acts of war. Those rockets are not arbitrary.

    Well if they're at war and attacking civilians is okay; then what's stopping Israel from setting occupied Israel (so-called Palestine) ablaze?

    Misleading.

    The citizens of an occupying power are not considered "civilians."

    Okay__ then I guess Israel can butcher those animals who are in their territory. Thanks for clearing that up.

    By the way, you're f'ing psycho if you think there's any time in history where one group can be expected to attack and the other is some how not allowed to fight the force with force.

    Those animals are lucky that Israelis are humanitarians.

    Humanitarian's do not commit armed aggression against an entire population of people. Israel is the aggressor. There is nothing humanitarian about the way they treat the Palestinian's. What Israel is doing, is illegal.

    You cannot fire a rocket "arbitrarily" at someone. Their rockets have no guidance systems. They can arbitrarily fire the rocket, it may (or may not) hit a citizen, but it is definately not fired at that citizen.

    The rockets are "illegal", because they are classified as "indescriminate weapons".
