    Why do they allow their people to continually be subjected to rocket attacks?
    I can't imagine the US standing by while constant rocket attacks come in from Canada or Mexico

    Because hamas wins the propagada war. Europe always has been anti Jew and that hasn't changed. The US is moving inexorably pro terrorist. That has changed. Israel will stand alone, and will win.

    Maybe they are saving up for an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

    Their government held a war game a few weeks ago in which they attacked Iran on December 9.

    This is a dumb answer, since winning a "propaganda war" is no win at all.

    The correct answer is that Israel can only "win" such a war by invading and destroying neighboring states--but they are destined to lose such a war in the long term. Imperialism seldom provides lasting victory, as history has always reminded us.

    Their neighboring middle eastern states, in fact, already see Israel as an unwanted invader that took their land and occupies their territory without consideration. That is the problem, and expanding Israeli agression will hardly help anything.

    In the topsy turvey world of the Middle East, a propaganda war is always a win for terrorists like Hamas. That they swept the 2006 elections is all the proof you need to see that.

    You can fire missiles into Israel all the live long day, and then the second they hit back, lay down and scream like a victim. Your dead babies are THEIR fault.

    Works every time.

    i think i already said that about mexico. but you'd have to actually go into the CDZ to see it.

    as for 'all out war'... israel's dropped over a thousand bombs on gaza, i think.

    that seems pretty all out.

    really? is that how israel's neighbors see them? the people they made peace with in jordan and egypt see them that way?

    perhaps you don't really understand the politics of the area and why the imams and sheiks keep israel as the thorn in the side of their downtrodden, uneducated people

    I don't think Israel will attack. I think the Palestinians started rocket attacks in Israel to test Obama. Now that they understand he's not on their side just yet, they'll end the attacks.
