swimguychicago saidPLEASE TRY TO ARGUE WITH FACTS AND LOGIC NOT PASSION!!!
We're all gay here, we're all HUMAN BEINGS here, let's try to reason and engage in DIALOGUE.
Since each generation of Palestinians teaches the following generation that their only purpose in life is the destruction of the state of Israel, there will never be peace.
And, of course, the Hamas terrorist organization, just fuels the flames.
Israel tried allowing Palestinians to come and go across the border, but the Palestinians sent their children walking into Israel, as suicide bombers. So, the Palestinians had to be isolated.
Then, the Palestinians started kidnapping Israeli soldiers, and firing rockets across the border, into Israel.
A few years ago, Israel invaded the Gaza strip, and did considerable damage, in retaliation for a marked increase in rocket attacks by the Palestinians. I would have thought that that amount of destruction would have made the Palestinians choose peace. But, it only brought a significant reduction in the number of rockets launched into Israel.
And, then, recently, Hamas and the Palestinians greatly stepped up their attacks on Israel, using rockets that could travel farther into the center of Israel.
So, now, Israel is forced to fight back.
It appears that there will be no peace for Israel until the last Palestinian is dead. But, in the background, there's the threat of Iran.
