    I think it's interesting to note that Israel is giving the Palestinians 5 hours tomorrow to be able to go out and get provisions and supplies. It's a humanitarian cease fire. I wonder if the Palestinians will honor it?

    How Israel Helped to Spawn Hamas

    By ANDREW HIGGINS
    Moshav Tekuma, Israel

    Surveying the wreckage of a neighbor's bungalow hit by a Palestinian rocket, retired Israeli official Avner Cohen traces the missile's trajectory back to an "enormous, stupid mistake" made 30 years ago.

    "Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel's creation," says Mr. Cohen, a Tunisian-born Jew who worked in Gaza for more than two decades. Responsible for religious affairs in the region until 1994, Mr. Cohen watched the Islamist movement take shape, muscle aside secular Palestinian rivals and then morph into what is today Hamas, a militant group that is sworn to Israel's destruction.

    Ah interventionism. Isn't it lovely? One day they are allies the next they are enemies.

    Good question.

    It always amuses me that the word Palestine that ancient Rome used to rename Israel is merely the Latin version of Philistia.

    Apparently the Palestinians couldn't honor it:

    "The pause"? What pause? They launched at least 3 mortar shells. :BangHead:

    It is a nice public relations ploy. However consider how small Gaza is, 131 square miles, 25 miles long and 3.7 to 7.5 miles wide with a population of 1.8 million. This means that most of those folk have nowhere to go. They are stuck in place.

    It is ironic that the only Israeli military death was from "friendly fire."

    How many deaths there are in Israel is irrelevant. Hamas is bombing Israel with no justification. If they want Israel to stop they need to stop bombing. Period.

    There is no moral equvilance between Israel and Hamas.

    Are you advocating that all Palestinians be killed?

    Just curious. Seems Rev does not consider Palestinian lives of any value. One Israels soldier versus hundreds of civilians, many of whom are women and children make no impression on him. So, as I said, just curious.

    And, as I said, it is ironic that the one Israeli killed was by "friendly fire".

    It is apparent that many posters here see no distinction between Palestinians and Hamas. Hamas attacked Israel. Israel, however, is killing dozens of Palestinians (that is, people who have nothing to do with the attack aside from unfortunate geography).

    Palestinians are not one undifferentiated borglike mass of people. They are individuals, just like Americans are individuals.

    But, of course, those who we are determined to hate we must first dehumanize.

    But let's look at real facts:

    Human shields. Warnings by Israel to get out of the area before they bomb. The Iron Dome and Israel's amazing defense system.
