Hezbollah and Hamas may join forces. And then Russia will take them over. Plus the mafia is going to get involved. Then the neo-nazis willlend aid. From there, it's just a matter of time until the Illuminati sticks its big nose in. But not the Moonies. The Moonies are oooooooooooooooookay!

It reminds me of the Chuck Norris Cold War 80's cheese  "Invasion USA".

The bad guys were:
1.  Russians
2.  Cubans
3.  Nicaraguans
4.  Liberal college professors
5.  Outlaw motorcycle gangs
6.  Drug dealers
7.  Black street gangs
8.  Terrorists
9.  Prostitutes

Basically, it's like every one of Chuck Norris' boogeymen formed a Voltron.

It's pretty clear that Hezbollah troops have been training Hmas lately which is why the IDF is suffering significantly higher casualties than they anticipated. A lot of militant groups are getting Combat experience thanks to the perpetual wars we kicked off by invading Iraq and Afghanistan

I would have put PA and Hamas as enemies and PA and Israel as neutral.

Also, how are the U.S. and Turkey not allies?  There's some important paperwork that says we are.

Eh, it's not really that surprising.  Most are at least sympathetic in that region.  Maybe not full blown friends but either dislike Israel enough to be ok with them or acknowledge that there is merit to the preservation of the Palestinian State regardless of the government running it.  They're also not a big enough player in the region to be viewed as a threat by the power players who watch their back with everyone else.

Yeah, I agree that this guy is being a bit melodramatic.  While Turkey has been pissy with Erdogan in charge, when push comes to shove they'll likely ally with the US over most everything else.

Plus we trained militias (redeploying Sadam's army) in Iraq under Colonel Steele.

There's a documentary on YouTube about Steele and his role in Iraqi militias, torture and death squads. I think it's the one titled Search For Steele.

Yes, Israel needs an excuse to bring out the big toys and go all-out.  Also, let's give the Western world one large target.  These groups only survive when they're small time and able to fade into the background like cockroaches when anyone takes notice.

The statistics of the dead on both sides indicate that Israel's attacks are much more targeted than those of the Palestinians.

Targeting combatants and warning civilians is pretty classy, actually. I can't think offhand of too many nations at war who have done the latter at all, can you?

Yes, Israel has made some pretty big mistakes, but they should be measured against what other nations have been able to achieve in similar circumstances, not an absolute ideal.

Huh? Your first link, to aljazeera, shows just two Israelis killed who weren't Israeli soldiers. Merely looking at the age of the Palestinian dead listed, it's obvious that many are non-combatants. How does this link back your claim that "Israel's attacks are much more targeted"?

From a quick scan of your third link, I noticed this data point doesn't back your claim:
"Palestinian children make up 20% of the total Palestinian deaths while Israeli children represent 12% of total Israeli deaths."

Your 2nd link touts the high ratio of Palestinian men killed compared to women as though that shows how effective Israeli targeting of combatants was during the second Infitada. However, your third link indicates that "87% of Palestinian children killed, for example, were boys and 13% were girls", so even when it's children far more males than females are killed among Palestinians.

I'm not seeing your point. Your links don't back your claim.

Help me out here. Hamas fired over 500 rockets and mortar rounds into Israel before Israel responded militarily, and it's Israel's "attacks" in Gaza that have you upset?

Also, what is your point about the numbers of dead and injured? Is there some approved ratio you'd be happier with? You know, like Israel has to stop responding to attacks when the ratio exceeds 10:1 or something? This is the kind of reverse racism that irritates me, which goes like this: Israel is a civilized country that should not "run up the score" against the Palestinians, who after all are a baser sort of people who can't be expected to observe the norms of civilized behavior. That's just bullshiat. Quit making excuses for Hamas.

That's some serious wishful thinking there, Moonie Times. Hamas (Sunni) is pretty farking pissed at Hizbollah for helping Assad the Butcher murder thousands in Syria, and the Shia (Hizbollah) aren't so thrilled about the new ISIS Caliphate brand, who've been slaughtering Shi'ites wholesale, in Iraq.

It's true they both hate Israel, but I doubt they will be putting aside their differences anytime soon, but hey...whatever keeps the mouth-breathers ignorant and fearful.

When i get home ill try to find the video i saw this morning that has hamas dragging kids with them as they fire on israelis....using the kids as shields of course.

Plus there is the funeral procession video of one of the hamas martyrs......who seems to still have a live bomb vest on because the corpse explodes and takes out a bunch of funeral marchers.

I wonder how hamas counts those casualties.....are they part of the number you claim....are the casualties attributed to the idf...

Also i watched from one of the live feeds maybe occupied gaza maybe jedhal whatits ustream of a bunch of rockets being fired at israel but the rockets malfunctioning and blowing up in a palestinian neighborhood a block away.

By far the best footage ive seen this week was a bunch of hamas types packed in ambulances and using the ambulances as protection only to get blown up by a bunch of 500 pound bombs dropped from an f16.

Did you know that when the place was called palestine back in the 40s there were actually jews living there and that despite what some websites tell you the jews really didnt all show up at once in 1947.

This. I am so sick of seeing Hamas apologists in my Facebook feed criticizing Israel because it's done a more effective job of firing back, or suggesting that you can tell who is "in the wrong" by counting the dead.
