    @joey: you should really read up on a bit of history. Israel is the only place where Arabs and Jews in the region live together. Gaza Strip, Iran, Jordan, Egypt, all places where Jews get murdered. Jews and Arabs have lived in that area for thousands of years, but the Jew hatred has been exacerbated during and after the Second World War, when Muslim extremists came to power in the region, helped by Hitler and Russia.

    At some point, Hamas will get guided rockets/missiles. Then Israel will be forced to wipe them out.

    In large part, it is religious zeal that is fuelling Israels claim to the land. They believe they are chosen by God and the land is their birthright.

    Israels displacement of the Palestinians has been condemned by Amnesty, the U.N. and the U.S government to name a few.

    @joey jo-jo

    Israel's displacement of Palestinians is indeed bad, but you haven't answered my question.

    How is Israel supposed to respond to the hundreds of rockets fired from Gaza?

    Its a fight over land, religious prejudice and adherence adds another element

    @joey jojo: That is not at all true. The Temple Mount is controlled by the Palestinians, the most holy site for Jews and the third most holy site for Muslims. If this were a religious conflict, don't you think the Israeli government would've just occupied all the holy places which Hamas is currently using as a platform to attack Israel?

    Israel is a very moderated relatively non-religious state, Arabs are in the high courts, in the government in Israel, how many Jews are in positions of government in Iran or Gaza?

    Israel did not displace Arabs, the other way around happened in the early 20th century and later wars, Iran and Jordan tried to populate the area after Israel changed desert into fertile ground. Israel won all those wars, they have the right to the land, but gave it up to Arab immigrants anyway, who in turn burned the greenhouses and farms to the ground and continue to complain. You are free to live in Israel as an Arab, there is no religious suppression there, but the Iranians want to turn it into a Muslim state.

    Off course Amnesty International, the UN and a left-wing US government have always supported anti-semitism, but you have to realize, if the Muslims got their way, the Jews would be no more. Giving them a finger doesn't work, they're a lot like JW's in that way.

    Love uni, another question could be, why are Palestinians firing rockets?

    Mouse, Israelis are forcibly evicting Palestinians from suburbs in Jerusalem, the U. N. is saying that this could be construed as a possible war crime.

    Jewish people view Palestinians as illegal squatters on their land.

    It's a complex situation and it's not as easy as proclaiming that one side, or the other has the moral high ground.
