The only democracy in the middle east.... or sharia supporting militants? I am going with Israel.
They were there first, according to the Bible.
Palestine fired first. But the Israelites have a missile defense system I see probable cause for retaliation.
Hamas has been shooting missiles at them. They are just defending themselves.
Self defence is an essential right of any sovereign nation
I'd never, ever side with any of Israel's enemies.. for any reason. The Jews are G-d's Chosen People forever and ever.
self defense should not be frowned upon
More Then 4000 ROCKETS were thrown from the hamas at Israel in only 3 years. It's 4 Rockets per day, With only 15 Seconds To Save yourself, your children, and everything that important for you. 4 Times a day. More Then 1000 Days. Support Israel and Stop it.
People who say that Israel is acting in self defense are misinformed. it is like saying that america was acting in self Defense by slaughtering the native american population, the attacks on the ANC or Englands multiple invasions of Scotland were self defense. Were they attacked, yes, does it come in a cycle of violence and complicated politics, also yes. Israel has violated the 1967 boundaries time and time again, have intentionally separated Palestinian groups, have instituted an apartheid system with roads and other privaleges, have constricted water rights and broken pipelines, have been bombing palestine for years, have refused to release palestinian representitives, have essentially created internment camps, deny palestinian refugees the ability to live in Israel, have not negotiated with Palestine and have killed hundreds of palestinians. to date, no Israelis have been killed. The argument that Israel were attacked first in this case is completely irrelevant, as there have been attacks going on for years. additionally, Israel's 'self defense' is like trying to kill a fly with a sledgehammer, their response is completely disproportionate.
