Total trade blockade of Israel and Palestine now. The world will not look passively at the atrocities committed by these savage religious fanatic nations any longer. The aggression stops now. --77.75.161.35 01:57, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

A blockade will just intensify things. That is what caused these recent problems. The proper response is to enforce the two state solution and make two independent nations one of Israel and one of Palestine so that neither has excessive control of the other, and each negotiate independent relations with their neighbors, backed up by U.N. peacekeepers. 72.154.55.98 02:51, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Godless government in Holy Land of Jewish and Christian.Edit

Do all Israeli knows that their shit government's "men" aren't human? It think they don't know. All Israeli government's men have bullshit mouth. Their government aren't Jewish, nor Christian but godless man swear they have religion. Never better that most dammit monkey. I think not only Bush must get shoes hurled to his face, but also Tzipi Livni, Ehud Barak, and also Ehud Olmert.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kazmierczak (talkcontribs)

Israel is defending itselfEdit

Israel is at war, being attacked by terrorists. They are in the right. Dont forget Hamas fires off daily rockets into Israel.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.240.8.178 (talkcontribs)

One might ask if nazist was under terroristattack from the jewish resistense in the ghetto of warsawa and in right to defend themself? No, I wouldnt say that. international (talk) 17:08, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
To be fair, the anti-Nazi Jewish resistant members didn't go around killing German citizens or firing rockets at them. --99.247.16.231 03:53, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
To be extra fair, The anti-Arab Jewish forces are (RIGHTNOW!) flying in the skys of Gaza city destroying houses killing citizens (even, kids, women, oldmen) and they are so pleased knowing why? because they didn't stop that Not mentioning they used mirco nuclear bomb, at the 1st time I thought that Israel deserves that land, now I can tell you that zionist is terror.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.114.171.54 (talkcontribs)
Also the Jewish resistance in the ghetto did not have the capabilities to attack the German civilians, circumstances have changed now and poor and oppressed people are now capable of making homemade rockets. 35 years ago when this occupation began Palestinian resistance was limited to the resistance of the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, all they could do was maybe throw a molotov cocktail or shoot an israeli soldier if they were lucky...so I think that yes it is fair to compare the occupied territories to the Warsaw ghetto, although obviously not to the much worse inhuman crime of the concentration camps.

Geneva convention violation?Edit

Is it just me, or was this a violation of the Geneva convention?

Specifically CCW Protocol III, Article 2, paragraph 2:

"It is prohibited in all circumstances to make any military objective located within a concentration of civilians the object of attack by air-delivered incendiary weapons."

Since the hq of the UNWRA and a (civilian) hospital each constitute a 'concentration of civilians', even if they did attack it because Hamas soldiers were using it as an artillery position, it was a violation to use incendiaries.

Or did I miss something (also, how the feck do you figure burning a hospital with a chemical agent as 'defending oneself' 66.240.8.178? Maybe you'd like to claim some 5 year old Palestinian girl with the measles was gonna cough on IDF personnel as some form of homebrew biological warfare?)

Nuclear attacksEdit

The Arabic version of Aljazeera have mentioned that Israel used micro nuclear bombs too, doctors said that these bombs does do 5 cm cut (on the human body) when they hit the area, but after a while they return much bigger and causes radial effects—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.114.171.54 (talkcontribs)
