I'm shocked that nobody here wants to discuss what's going on in Gaza right now! I guess I'll have to start a forum. Maybe it's because people don't think that this doesn't affect the rest of the world. If there is peace between Israel and Palestine, I think we can achieve peace in other parts of the middle east. Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Pakistan. These are all countries that our new president will have to take on over the next four years.
For those of you who aren't aware of whats going on in Gaza, you need to read up about it. It's your responisbility as a citizen of the world. And for those of you who do follow this issue, here's my opinion.
Israel is pissed because Hamas won't stop launching rockets at south Israeli town. Palestinians are pissed because they believe that the Israelis are occupying Palestinian territory.
Now, Hamas wants Israel destroyed and we all know that this is a war they cannot win. This is not a solution. Personally, I think that Hamas should be destroyed. I am behind the Israeli army on this issue. There will not be peace as long as Hamas has weapons. It's a shame that all these innocent people are getting killed in Gaza, but that's not Israel's fault.
Hamas says they are trying to protect the palestinian people. If they think that they are protecting their people by creating potential military targets in civilized areas, then they are mistaken. If they wanted to protect their people, they would be fighting their war and building their outposts away from innocent people. They are using a human shield to protect themselves. Cowards.
Anyone have any thoughts?
