60 years ago when most of the population is living as refugees or in ghettoes, is a real problem. 2,000 years ago whent he majority of the Jewish population had never set foot in Palestine nor known anyone who had, is a fantasy.That's debatable. But even if it was true, the Israelis could appeal
to ancient history also.
Not a hard difference to grasp I would think.
Where's your evidence for this claim that most civilians deahts are the result of Hamas using "human shields"?Hamas is responsible for the civilian deaths. They should not use their own as human shields in a war.
Also I can say Israel uses its "own" as human shields, by building settlements on the frontiers designed for its poorest citizens, or illegal settlements in Palestinian land.
you got htis the wrong way round. Israel is the one occupying Palestine and ilelgally denying them the right to return to their country. Hamas only emerged after decades of Israeli occupation, and only became a significant force recently.It's not about who's more valuable. It's about who has the choice. The Palestinians can stop the war by simply refraining from firing rockets into Israel.
the choice is Israel's, not the Palestinians. The Palestians are forced to resist by the ethnic cleansing carried out on them which has driven them to exile and poverty. Becuase of Israel's intransigence, their only choice is to fight it. Which they are right to do.
