"Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers have staked tough, hard-to-bridge positions"

Israel: We want you to stop firing rockets at us.

Hamas: We want you to cease to exist.

“We want to tell the world which is supporting the state of Israel, what this state is doing,” said neighbor Rushdie Nasser. “They are supporting a state that kills children ... We want to send a message to the U.N. and the West: Enough of supporting the Zionists, who are killing children.”

Sounds pretty scripted.

Clinton, because he did such a great job of resolving Israel/Palestine issues while he was president. Also, Obama knows he has lost the trust of Arabs and Israelis because of his bumbling ME foreign policy that has spread destruction and death throughout North Africa.

taro67: Clinton, because he did such a great job of resolving Israel/Palestine issues while he was president.

Um, your comment would have more credibility if you at least pick the correct Clinton. Which is Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, not the former President.

Please forgive me for intervening in one of your anti-American rants, but if it were not for Yasser Arafat - the Palestinians would have had more or less everything they wanted in the deal organized by Bubba.

The Israel would like to defend its nation with Jerusalem as the capital city of their faith as prophesied in their bible thousand of years ago. Thousand of years ago, there was a prophecy that the people of Israel will be scattered around the world and would lost the land but would have time again to gather as one faith in one land... and now (since 1948) as a nation, it will defend itself, take necessary force, whatever it cost to tell the other group that we mean business when we say we exist and will live in this land. The prophecy or the promise of God to the Jews to have the holy Land was already realized.

ON THE PALESTINIAN SIDE: Article 7 of the Islamist organization's covenant states that Palestinians must drive the Jews out of the Middle East, so that the Judgment Day predicted by the Islamic Prophet Mohammed can be realized This is the source: http://mesc.osu.edu/documents/onIsrael&PalestinianTerritories/Ghaza_crisis.pdf

Yep - it's folks like him here, that motivate me to lean on my Representatives to push DOD to get us out of Japan. It's becoming clear that it's a huge waste of my tax money.
