The intrepid president has spoken and he has swept through the beautiful tragic land that is Palestine/Israel with a message of peace in our time or at least before he leaves office.
Well he is hardly up in the air and all hell breaks loose, Israel invade Gaza again and this time the score is, over the last 2/3 days Israel 27 Palestine 1 but hey, it ain't over til it's over right, well Gaza now has no water and no electricity so you better get your money on those Israelis, home made rockets and stones are no match for nuclear bombs are they.

Does anyone stop to think what no water and no electricity is like, in poor homes, in schools, in hospitals. Do people consider the fate of people who are sick and wounded being refused to leave Gaza for treatment.

Israel has created a situation which will cause them to be damned for centuries, the only hope is that the world is watching, these crimes against humanity are being watched by tens of millions around the world. Israel can completely destroy the Palestinians and they might do just that they might win a victory of that kind but at what price ? they will lose in one way or another in the long term.
Where are the good Israelis ?

Perhaps if the loons running Gaza would just let up on the daily rocket attacks then possibly you might just, just have a case to moan about the treatment they receive in return, after all, you reap what you sow. Two wrongs don't make a right, but the Palestinians are without doubt their own worst enemies when it comes to public relations.

Have you considered that the Palestinians are fighting against an invading force who have driven them out of their homes, farms and villages. Invaders who treat them like animals, cut off their water and electricity and refuse to allow them to move.

If this was being done by anyone except Israel it would be described correctly as a war crime.

Oh yes, the poor Palestinians, thrown off their land by a U.N. Mandate. Tell me now what’s your opinion on the return of Kaliningrad/Koenigsberg to Germany after it was liberated (stolen) from them by Stalin? Think they have a good case?

That will be the mandate based on this, I paraphrase ‘ the creation of a homeland for the Jews will not cause the indigenous Arab population to be disadvantaged’ (Balfour)

You can excuse anything if you are dishonest enough can’t you.

"You can excuse anything if you're dishonest enough, can't you".

Is that the Scottish Labour party motto?
