    For a people so hateful, youd think they would know how to fight.

    If theyre not launching missiles randomly or blowing themselves up or planting explosives then they're slitting throats of babies.

    Maybe that's why they're so mad, because they keep losing battles..

    I have often wondered this too. They do seem quite cackhanded too - blowing off their own arms for example whilst working on bombs.
    Salahadin and a few others were pretty good at it, and the guy who took Constantinople, but then he had inside help. Maybe they get too excited and impatient?

    They had the French as coaches? Lets not forget that they were under French occupation as well, after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

    I don't know why you think that the Arabs don't know how to fight/ First of all its an old idea in History that says superior technology in war-fare a strong suit to play but in the long-run superior technology cannot not win a war if you don't have enough boots on the ground.

    The Palestinians are a stick and stone army vs. the best military money can buy... I would say these fighters who attack tanks with pistols are very brave.

    That's why Israel's Sharon left Gaza...That's why America left Iraq and now Afghanistan. This situation is a classic quagmire because this conflict is reaching well beyond the bounds of Palistine, with Iranian Rockets, the Arab Spring...

    Its a spark about to engulf the whole region...

    Sallow does not see people as "Arab" or "Turk" (or "black" or "white" or "man" or "woman") she just sees people.

    That's just silly. There are absolutely no indications that the conflict with Gaza will spread anywhere. It will generate some angry noise on the Arab street and some Arab/Muslim governments will feel obligated to make angry statements, but the focus of the governments in the region is on the conflict with Iran and the conflict between Israel and the Gaza terrorists is just a temporary distraction.
