I would like to suggest two more reasons that explain Israel's present and past policy towards its neighbours. The first is that peace endangers Israel's very existence as it would loose the support of the European and American Jews if it did leave in peace; funds would dwindle down and immigrants would be few and far between. The second is that a large part of the Israeli working population is employed directly or indirectly by the war industry, whose products are both exported and used locally. So if the arsenals are not emptied now and then - which also explains the exaggerated quantity of weapons used both against Lebanon and against Gaza - massive unemploymentwould ensue and cause social unrest.

Karmalove, do you deny the Zionist Movement? The Jewish people do have a right to a homeland, if they buy it or take possession legally. Not by force, by killing people, kicking them out of their homes with a gun put to their heads forcing all the Palestinians into refugee camps. There are over 4 Million Palestinians living in refugee camps in Gaza Strip Alone. How do you justify this? As far as who was there first is a pointless arguement, not to meantion the Palestinians, who are the same people of Canaan were the first inhabitants of this land. The Zionists have been terrorizing the Palestinians for far too long now.

There will be no peace because Israel was created by forcing people from their homes without compensation and then holding those people in ghettos or treating them as second class citizens without rights equal to the Jewish citizens of Israel.

No, I was the one who called them cowards for posting anon. Must be confusing for you all to know who is posting where because you all post anon.
Doesn't matter to me, it justs proves one point. You post anon because you truly don't stand by your words. I on the other hand stand by my words, I NEVER post anon. I don't care for popularity contests and I am not stooping down to your childish level.
It is not fair to the underdog when she is up against someone like me who is more educated on certain matters.
