    Recent rocket attacks by Hamas militants, that's why.

    Can't they just sing carols around an open fire or something?

    That's their excuse, but I'm failing to see the validity of bombing a cop shop in response to a terrorist group making rocket attacks.

    It is definitely a saddening thing to hear, but never a shock anymore. The Middle East is always causing some type of war or violence, and it's inevitable until the area will collapse on itself if diplomacy and peace don't have a growing effort.
     
  8. Sigh, thats a sad thing to hear, especially for the time of the year.
    Come on, even we, the Belgians, and the Germans were singing together at Christmas at WWII, but then again, Palestina's don't celebrate Christmas.
    I wonder when their eyes will open and they'll realise that their war doesn't solve anything. Probably never.

    According to this the death toll has breached 200
    Sad really, but it's such an unstable area, nothing is going to change as long as the Israelis keep retaliating instead of initiating peace talks with the surrounding nations as well as Hezbollah.

    This is akin to a 6-year old poking a grown man with a stick, and the man taking a taser to him. =/

    If Israel wants to convince the rest of the world that it's a legitimate and even vaguely civilized country, it needs to stop retaliating every time Palestine pokes it.
    This is frankly disgusting. The United States should have withdrawn support a long time ago, as Israel has yet to prove that it wants anything even resembling peace.

    Israel was being shelled for what a week? Two weeks? What do you expect them to do, sit on their asses while hell is rained down from the sky?

    This isn't being poked with a stick, this is being shot at.

    Hamas tends to use Police Stations, Hospitals, Schools, Mosques as areas to resupply or to attack from. So that when retaliation happens they can draw sympathy from people. It's a sick and disgusting thing, but it's not the most disgusting thing Hamas has done.

    Because giving up Gaza stip in the first place was such an act of aggression.

    Read the article.

    Firing rockets is not "poking" and making that comparison is ridiculous. Under that logic after 9/11 we should have just blown two of the biggest building in Aghanistan. Tit for tat right?


    Are you retarded? You can argue that the Israeli government is morally apprehensible all you want, it's really none of my concern. The fact of the matter is their territory was attacked in an uncivilized manner, and they have every right as a soveriegn nation to respond with aggression.

    Further more recognizing Hamas as a legitimate "nation" or whatever you like to call it, is nonsense.

    "So I here Israel got rockets fired into their territory for a straight week by random terrorist group that pawns itself off as a legitimate nation"
    "Yeah I heard about that. Apparently Israel sent troops in to try and clean house."
    "Those sick warmongering bastards"

    True. But honestly, the entire population of Gaza suffers because of Hamas's actions. Maybe I've just been watching to many Bt'selem videos lately.

    If your going to blame Israel, blame them for stuff that actually matters. Like blocking all roads and starving everyone in Gaza. That's something. This is not.

    Just for a bit of history leading up to it, in the past week leading up to this, over 200 mortars and rockets have rained down upon Israel since the truce expired some time last week. Since the beginning of the year, over 3,000 Rockets have been fired into Israel. Funny how we never get topics about Hamas shooting 200+ Rockets at Israel the moment the truce expires. But when Israel finally retaliates, suddenly they are the bad guys and Hamas is the innocent child who has been poking Israel, and the US needs to stop all aid to Israel.

    You know what Hamas calls "Peace Talks" and "Truces" with Israel? A chance to rearm, regroup, and plan for their next attack. These people give children AK-47s and Suicide Vests, peace talks to them are just a chance to become a stronger killing machine.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that did happen... Over reaction is nothing new; Boston massacre, snow balls and ice = open fire?
