I have read many journal posts written by Muslims that are obviously anti Israel. Do you think that Israel should sit back while rockets are launched at them from Gaza, or should they protect their citizens and fight back?

    Simple answer because if someone were bombing my home I sure as hell would fight back.

    you really need to read up on the history there. Israel was given the land that was their country, then Israel has American weapon backing and so really, the people who have been cornered into the dismal ghetto called Gaza aren't going about it the right way (it is never okay to bomb) but they are the original victims fighting for what belonged to them before ww2.... before bashing me please look up a short history... so imo, no Israel shouldn't bomb them, idk what they should do but that is not going to fix anything, it never has.

    Fight back. It's their country and they have every right to defend it. And to Amalia... YOU should read up on your history. You really ahve it all wrong there. And if they shouldn't bomb them, then waht to do? What's YOUR suggestion? Just sit back and let missiles fall on schools and private homes? (I guess you didn't read about the kindergarten missile, huh?). It's THEIR land now and they should defend it. Palestinians are experts at playing the martyr card, but if they want peace, they should start by giving peace.

    Isreal must bomb. Hamas is using the Gaza Strip as a shield and killing innocent people. Kill Hamas!

    you over simplify the issue, but then that is what serves Israel best.

    It is NEVER okay to kill the innocent. Like it or not the problem is religion. Through history the world has done its best to erase the Jewish population. It is simply wrong to want to do that with ANY population.

    People must defend themselves though. If someone were shooting at your house you would expect the police to lock them up! You cannot negotiate with someone that simply hates you and wants you dead.

    I am a devout Catholic. Even though I don't agree with the Muslim faith I have a real sympathy for those of them that are not involved in the hate/violence.

    I have said it before and I will say it again...people should follow the one simple rule we have here in the "Happy Howard House". The rule is "BE NICE". It pretty much covers everything. One rule, two words and the world would be much happier.

    With a the deaths reaching over 500 Palestinians and 5 Israelis, I think we can tell who is the real aggressor is and who is really trying to keep from being wiped off the planet. If someone took your home, put you in a refugee camp shut off your electricity, water, food supply and medical supplies for over 60 years don't you think you might shoot some ineffective homemade rockets as well? After all your kids are starving... by the way it isn't a Muslim/Jewish war, the most forgotton victims of this war are the Christian Palestinians who are dying right beside the Muslim Palestinians...

    Well said Heatkab. It is never ok to kill innocent people. I can't believe some of you would pray for that. What a shame.
