What a way to live. Israel essentially camps in the midst of its enemies. And it can be important to understand that terrorist groups like Islamic Jihad and Hamas evidence not a radicalized misunderstanding of their own religion, but a zealous positivity based on an accurate understanding of the fundamental teachings of the religion. If one doubts this, then one can research its fundamental text, and, though text alone can be logically open to multiple interpretations by its self, its correct interpretation can be derived by also knowing the actions of its founder who reformed a henotheistic religious system into the monotheistic form of present day and demonstrated its meaning. The history of Islam entering Hindu East India is also instructive. As able (and united Islamic Democracies operating with oil wealth will be much more able), it will be a thorn in the side to those who do not bow to it. Also, look at the records of Iran's President's statements about the destruction of Israel at Islamic rallies. Militant religions cannot be respected.

To read of the Israeli state developing an advanced technology like this to protect innocent civilian lives with greater precision and non-violently is great. Also, to have Prime Minister Netanyahu in a position of power during this time of unrest in nations surrounding Israel is good to see. He has always seemed well educated and deeply considerate with a firm and shrewd kindness. Judeo/Christian Israel will respect others, but not bow to the violence or enticements of those who would so violate that respect. This technology and leadership are good to read of. Shalom to the peaceful and righteous nations.

You must b kiddn if ur trying to include israel as part of ur peaceful and righteous. They are as much to blame for the viscious hatred cycle as their arab cousins. But definitely shalom to other nations like canada.

Its too bad the Palestinians can't have a defense system against Israeli warplanes, armor, and white phosphorous. Why not?

Oh yeah! Because the Israelis have them under a blockade so complete, they are not even allowed fresh meat or canned beans! Now why oh why would the Palestinians launch rockets against these nice Israelis?

In other news, the Israel is shipping humanitarian goods to Japan. But don't worry, they didn't pay for them. It was all stuff sent for Palestinian children that the Israelis blocked and had sitting around.

"Its too bad the Palestinians can't have a defense system against Israeli warplanes, armor, and white phosphorous. Why not?"

Or maybe they should simply stop firing rockets indiscriminately into Israel?

Mangaman: Now why oh why would the Palestinians launch rockets against these nice Israelis?

As each day passes without an attack from Palestinian militants the pressure for Israel to let up gets taken up a notch. But instead the militants woke up and said, "Hey, let's kill some innocents which will provoke a response which in turn will get some of our people killed, including our own innocents." So now people are dead for absolutely no reason, the Palestinians just lost some support around the world, and a peace deal is even more out of reach.

So I really don't know the answer to your question. Maybe you can enlighten us. To me it seems like what the Palestinians want and how they're going about trying to get it are just miles apart.

What a revolutionary idea.
