Three Israeli teenagers have been killed after being kidnapped weeks ago. Israel was quick to blame Hamas for the kidnapping, but strangely, Hamas didn't take credit. They've also denied any part in it. Even more strange is the execution of the teenagers. Hamas and other Palestinian groups have always sought to trade prisoners. Why would they kill them?
At the time of the kidnapping, I suspected something was awry. Now they're dead, I'm even more suspicious. Could this have been a government-ordered Mossad plot to start another conflict with the Palestinians? I certainly wouldn't put it past Netanyahu and Mossad. As ever, more information is required, otherwise it's just speculation. I would ask: Were these teenagers dissenters or activists against Israeli aggression? What will happen in terms of Israel's response? If Israel uses it as a pretext for war, it would certainly add to the theory.
Netanyahu said the teenagers were "kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by animals" and said: "Hamas will pay". There are also calls from many Israeli officials that Hamas be "eradicated" and "now is a time for actions, not words". Already, five Palestinians have been killed and 400 taken prisoner (or kidnapped... depends how you look at it, right?). It sounds like Netanyahu will get what he wants.
Its nothing new though is it? This tit for tat war has been going on for years between two peoples who undoubtedly have the right to live there but unfortunately hate each others guts.
There is no solution to this problem it will continue to boil over until the whole of mankind exterminates itself.
Who will bury the last man/woman?
This goes back to just after WWI when the Brits carved up the Holy Lands and left this area with new borders and many people made to live alongside those in which they did not get along. Iraq is a prime example. This left the Palestinian area in chaos. Along comes the US following WWII and with the help of the League of Nations declares the area a Jewish State. More bad blood and fast dirty wars follow. Now we have Israel in charge and they keep rubbing the local Arabs eyes in it by "acquiring" new territory autonomously leaving many Arabs homeless. What do they expect them to do. Is it Hamas? Who knows for sure as there is more than enough ire to go about that anyone could have done it. Yet America marches forward becoming part of it through its support. It is no wonder why the US is included as the enemy.

Who will benefit from it? The Palestinians or the Israelis? Remember the King David hotel bombing by the Irgun in 1946, in Ramla in 1948, the Buenos Aires Israeli ambassy bombed by Israelis in 1992, Sept 11 in the US... Killing those three kids would fit their modus operandi justifying to the eyes...

The incompetent, immature, not-quite-adult one term president Obama was taken to the woodshed by Mr. Netanyahu. I loved it. Our bully in chief could not bully the adult in the room. Mr. Obama came off looking like an anti-Semite. And Mr. Netanyahu clearly appeared to be the only statesman in the...
