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 of the world their violent retaliation. They will point fingers at the Arabs and their unwillingness to peace, once more. What is your opinion?
The Mossad chief, one week before the kidnapping proposed to kidnap three kids as a solution to Israel's predicament. It is interesting that few European media, mostly German, are wondering if it really happened. The killing of the Palestinian was REAL.
I suppose it is possible Max but it's more likely Hamas wanted to invoke a disproportionate response from Israel so that their (Hamas) jihadist brothers (ISIS) would come and join the fray.
It is unlikely though that ISIS will come at this moment as they are busy beheading as many people as possible in Iraq and Syria.
Hamas has rejected the kidnapping. And by the way, Hamas is not ISIS. Let's not get confused. Hamas has the support of the Palestinians because they are the only ones that fight the Israeli abuse. It is a RESISTANT movement not a djihadist movement like ISIS. Did Hamas invade Iraq? Syria? And, let's not forget that Western countries, including the US finance ISIS.
Even Israeli newspapers find odd the coincidence between what the chef said and the kidnapping the week later. if you have doubts, I don't.
Again, where are their bodies? The Palestinian one is a reality.
At a moment where Palestinians gather momentum, you are telling me that they are consciously RUINING their efforts? Israelis were the ones that had everything to lose.
Actually Max I have had enough of the rubbish from both sides, the isrealis keep telling us that they are being attacked and the Palistinians keep telling is they are being attacked and nobody is listening any more because we all know both sides are setting up for war.
I didn't think the two state solution would work but I see now it is the only way it could work.
If you think the extremely rich wahabists are not financing ISIS you are deluded, it is their aim to kill or convert, that's what it says in their religious book and they think they are booking there place in heaven by financing jihad.
If interested in a well documented perspective rarely articulated on this conflict, I highly recommend at least considering this resource:
"Judgment Day! Islam, Israel and the Nations"
http://www.amazon.com/Judgment-Day-Isla … 1928660320
I've not read it myself in years, but recall it was very well done, providing sources for the case it makes, allowing anyone to verify it for themselves. It presents things in another light, which makes a lot more sense regarding what we are seeing unfold in the middle east. You won't find a more concise presentation on this complex issue. In light of recent events, I really need to find the time to read it again myself.
I will see if I can find a copy.
I think both sides need to stop looking to history for the answers and start looking to secure a future for them both.
Whilst arguing who is wrong and who is right nothing will be settled.
I do believe though that there are those on both sides who would continue until the last child is dead.
Between salafist, wahabist and chiites there's a difference. The West and the petromonarchies are finanacing those butchers.
If there has been one singular world constant in all the years I have been on this earth it is the endless bloody hostilities in the "holy land". There is nothing holy about it; both sides are guilty of maligning, vilifying, bombing and outright slaughtering the other, while governments have thrown money behind both sides.If the world is starting to not care, it cannot come as a surprise to anyone. Perhaps staying the hell out of this feud will prove the wisest move toward ending it for good.
Now it gives the Israelis full power to raid, attack the Palestinians. Easy to guess, wasn't it?
What don't you understand? That suddenly because Gaza has offshore one of the biggest natural gas reserve that the Israelis are bombing them? Is it how justice is done in a dictatorship? I guess it is. I am FED up of those ZIONISTS. All those neocons that are telling me that Russia was the one that fired a missile. NO, IT ISN'T US that wants to wage war? In how many war fronts are we involved in? Where are Russian special ops deployed?
I am TIRED of JUNK NEWS. They want us to accept the tortures, the killings that are done in my names. I reject it.
I understand that Hamas is a terrorist organisation and it likes to strap bombs to children. Now how should Isreal deal with an organisation that has vowed to kill all the Jews?
Isreal is by no means innocent but Hamas is complicit in the killing of its own people.
My niece who lives in France told me that she saw a video of israhelli soldiers dragging behind their truck a Palestinian woman followed by her daughters that were running and crying after their mom.
You are telling me that short distance rockets beat the sophisticated Israhelli weapons then why only 52 soldiers died whereas 788 Palestinians died and 4,750 were wounded?
Its simple Max
If you build your defences out of the latest technology you will have less casualties when someone attacks you, however if you build you defences out of women and children.........................well you know what happens next, you can see it and have commented on it.
People ignore the root of the problem.
An 8 year illegal Israeli siege of Gaza. Controlling and blockading air, land and sea. That's an act of war from the very beginning.
Not to mention a 47 year brutal military occupation of the West Bank.
International law is being brazenly flouted by Israel. The world needs to act but the USA protects the criminals in Tel Aviv.
It's an absolute scandal.
I agree. But the good thing is that Israel is surrounded by Arab countries, that it is full of nuclear heads, that soon is predicted the big financial crash... Given our history, do you know the concept of the perfidious Albion that we represent. Sooner rather than later, since realistic economists anticipate the crashing of the economy either at the end of this year or next year, we will leave Israel to its own volition.
Since we anticipate the partition of Libya, Iraq (we gave the North to the Kurds), Syria..., Israel will too, I guess, meet its destiny. Why would it only be the privilege of few?
Did you know that the Israelis are bombing Gaza to access one of the biggest natural reserve ever discovered? Another economical move. Everything, about those people is hypocrisy.
The killing of those so-called 3 kids was another false flag operation, and nothing else.
Step 1: Move all non-military and non-political citizens out of the general area (in about a 1000-mile radius).
Step 2: Nuke the hell out of that area.
Step 3: Nuke it again.
Step 4: Nuke it until it's uninhabitable forever.
Step 5: Nuke it until the crater is so deep you can see Hell.
Step 6: Nuke it again for good measure.
(Optional Step 7: Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.)

What is your stand regarding the war between Israel and Palestine?

In 2010 Norman Finkelstein said "Israel is now a lunatic state"His words have never been more prophetic. Israel is conducting one atrocity after another in Gaza right now. This is a prolonged and sadistic massacre of a civilian population.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BchxN2Y9NIk

In a 90 minute 'debate', neither Joe Biden nor Sarah Palin even once used the dreaded P-Word. Both candidates made a point of declaring their unquestioned support for their no.1 ally and friend in the Middle East, Israel. Biden, once only, allowed for the possibility of a "2-state...
