What if the Israeli response is exactly what Hamas wants? In months, the rocket attacks only managed to kill 3 people in Israel, now, over 60 young Israeli men have been killed. Many innocent people have lost homes and businesses, making them prime targets for extremification, and a great swatch of the Western world is very displeased with Israel. Before, Hamas could do little, now they have done much.

Like too many people you're missing out years of history, and the involvement of the US with Israel. It is crazy to suggest Hamas wants the Palestinians to be wiped out by the Israelis, which is what is happening. That fewer Israelis have been killed displays the stronger position of Israel. Notice how none of the other Arab states are involved... They are US allies.

Of course they don't want the Palestinians to be wiped out, but bleeding a little to rile up the people is can be quite effective. A thousand or so innocents die, hundreds lose homes and businesses, this goes beyond just those who are directly harmed, the entire community sees it. We think they should blame Hamas for inciting the whole thing, and there is logic in that. But with the right persuasion, they can also see Israel as the bad guy, the guy that actually released the bomb that destroyed their homes, and they can be convinced to fight Israel as well. If you're neighbors are shooting rockets at each other, and your house gets blown up between them, are not angry at both?

Lol, would you suggest civil war is NOT extreme? It's a state of mind. And a status quo. Between two parties. When there is a status quo at war, both parties can be considered equal. No matter what. That is history; what we -as supposed to be or not- have learned or not have learned to solve conflict. Experience enough concerning these matters. There's very little to deny.

Not sure what you're getting at. I just meant that when a person who is not a terrorist has their house blown up, the are more likely to consider becoming a terrorist.

I couldn't state it more obvious to a human eye though. Maybe you felt the need to 'justify' yourself? On the other hand. Or.. did I miss something? Can you please state 'what'? Logically spoken? Or do we have a 'little misunderstanding' here? The choice is all yours. Obviously *washes his hands in front of the crowd* Matthew 27:24

No, you really could state it more clearly. My opinion is that Israel's heavy response is going to make Hamas, or some similar group, stronger in the long run. Your opinion appears to be that in a status quo of civil war, both parties are considered equal. Perhaps in an ethical sense that's true, but it certainly isn't the case materially. I fear that in the future, due to this event, Hamas may become materially stronger.

Like in 'having nuclear weaponry'? Come on.. Einstein.. who are you kiddin' wid? It's all in the mind. As we could read stuff and such. That's one of the advantages of writing material in the first place, not? Let's not forget we are following bookworms. According to what is known to mankind.. it's alive!

You're just messing with people, aren't you? Or, is English perhaps not your first language?
