These arguments go 'round and 'round but the truth is this:
There are factions of Muslims who want to see Israel destroyed. There are factions of Israelis who want to see the concept of Palestine as a nation destroyed.
There are atrocities on both sides. One country's "freedom fighters" are another's "terrorists".
Innocent people are being killed. This is justified in the name of nationalism.
On one hand..the IDF...on the other Hezbollah.
Israel is justifying violence through land expansion by turning Gaza into a Canton. Hezbollah is firing rockets and killing innocents in Israel. Israel has evicted Muslim people from their homes and destroyed those homes. Hezbollah is marginalized to the point that there will be no constructive talks with them as a party. There are innocent Muslims who do not agree with the Hezbollah violence. There are people within Israel who do not approve of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza or the bombing of Lebanon.
The Bush Administration has taken Israel's side but historically has sold weapons to Sadam Hussein and Iran.
There is enough perfidy on all sides to make you wonder if the world is a great big madhouse.
At the root of the problem as always lies religious differences.
