It is a shame that all of us see aggression and oppression in Gaza and other places but we cannot do anything to stop it. The silence is deafening. As if our lips are sealed, our hands are tied. We are unable to raise our concern and voice against an open aggression against people who happen to be our fellow humans let alone our brothers in Islam.
Our (US)government is helpless to openly speak up against such unjustified killings and destruction of one people by another. Everyone around the globe (except our ordinary folks who believe in whatever they are told) know who controls our leaders. The leaders know what is right and what is wrong, but they are helpless as they are controlled by Israelis and serve their interests. Since Nixon every president is scared to speak the truth against Israel because of fear of loosing their seat or getting blackmailed to a disgraceful exit. Obviously they choose their seat and job by glorifying those who control their fate. Every man and woman of knowledge knows that.

One day the world will judge them for their actions and in-actions. They will not be glorified for supporting the aggression and oppression at the end but for standing up against it, even if that put them in risk of being kicked out of power. I hope they realize that the real glory comes by standing up against oppression does not matter how powerful the aggressor is.

Caringheart,
it is responsibility of all humanity to address crises like Gaza.
Caringheart you are scared to comment anything against Israel, these Israelis are more fair than you:

This link does not seem to work, try typing words: "Cleansing Gaza - Israel/Palestine" in Youtube search.

It belongs to both Israelis and Palestinians, don't you think?

If someone thinks all Israelis should disappear, he or she is no better than those Israelis who think all Palestinians should disappear.

So whatever the remaining land that is not called "Israel" today still considered shared property? Or which one are you referring to?

Of course it belongs to Palestinian state, in which Jews can live as lived before, Christians the same way.
Most of the Jews that came to the area after forming of state of Israel were actually came from abroad. After the break up of Soviet Union thousands of Jews (many were not even Jews anymore) were given instant citizenship upon arrival while those Palestinians who have lived there for generations could not return to their homeland after being force out. What kind of standards are that?

As mentioned in the other thread: keep in mind that the majority of Israelis were born after 1948 and have build houses and are now being threatened to leave their houses and be driven into the sea to drown.

I agree that the world community could have handled the matter in a better way back in 1948. But we cannot undo the past. Millions of Germans who have not voted for the Nazis and were against their agenda lost their homes in Eastern Europe. Their West German brothers and sisters invited all the millions of refuges and shared their homes. Should the children of these refuges now ask Poles and Romanians and all the others to leave Poland and Romania so that the Germans can go back? The Arab brothers and sisters did not invite the Palestinian refugees and they didn't share their homes. They still don't to this day. All they do is asking for Israelis to be killed so that Palestinians can go back to what used to be Palestine. That's a pseudovision for the future. That's a recipe for doom.

Renaming Israel to Palestine won't work. It could be named Israel-Palestine. There are a lot of countries with hyphens in them. Michael Lerner suggested several models.

Matt,
the Jews are still collecting money from what was done to them during Holocaust. If they have committed a crime, stole anything (land in this case) they are thief. And a thief does not become clean after death, until the property is returned to its rightful owners, the Palestinians.
I know certain things cannot be undone, like torture or Palestinians, mass murder of innocent villagers, loss of their livestock, their farms, houses, their livelihood, their dreams and so on. But there are ways to do the justice. When a criminal kills an innocent man, we cannot bring back the deceased, but in order to serve justice we punish the killer. The world must unite and punish Israel for it's crime and compensate to the Palestinians for what injustices they have suffered for several generations now.

They don't need to, because the UN has promised the Palestinians a state of their own and the right of the refugees to return to their homeland. Now what the World community should do is - implement those resolutions, and by all accounts, that won't bode well for Israel or atleast it's Jewish character. You see, the very foundation of Israel is on shaky grounds.

Matt, you should stop making hasty generalisations if you are to show yourself as an unbiased observer. All that the Palestinians need to realise their aspirations is the implementation of UN resolutions. Any solution to this issue should prioritise justice, not the wishful thinking and wants of those who happen to have considerable power.

The West Bank and Gaza would already be a country recognized by the UN, if all Palestinian leaders acknowledged Israel's right to exist. The West Bank and Gaza would already be a country if the Israeli government returned to the 1967 borders and made the illegal settlers leave their settlements. Israelis elect hardliners because of the Hamas threat. Palestinians elect Hamas because of the Israeli hardliners. It's called a deadlock. Michael Lerner describes a way out of it.

Which Israel are the Palestinians supposed to recognise? The Israel of the UN partition plan? The 1949-67 Israel? Or the Israel as it is now? Has Israel ever defined it's borders?

"In the Name of Allah "The All Beneficent the All Merciful "All Praise belongs to Allah the Lord of the Worlds and may His Peace and blessings be upon the supreme Messenger the Trustworthy Prophet and his immaculate Household the chosen testaments .the problem of the occupation of Palestine and the holy city of Qods the biggest catastrophe that has befallen the Islamic Ummah in contemporary history as a result of colonial plots .The present era is an era of Islamic awakening with Palestine at its very core " since the occupation of Palestine the oppressed Palestinian people have been through periods of severe ordeal and have undergone various tribulations beginning with an unequal and desperate resistance followed by homlessness and ex ile devastation of homes and homeland massacre of dear ones recourse to international bodies taking resort in fruitless political bargainings and the totally hapless gamble of negotiating with the occupier with the mediation of those very powers who bear the principal guilt for bringing about this calamity and are responsible for its continuation "The outcome of this historical experience was to bring the proud young generation of that brave and enlightened people to the peaks of awakening unleashing the volcano of the Intifada "The opposite camp has also passed through various stages extending from merciless and unbridled savagery ferocious destructiveness and genocide military aggression against neighboring states and entertaining of the Nile to Euphrates pretensions to political and economic encroachment on the region by exploiting the weakness and betrayal of some politicians of the Muslim world leading up to its sudden encounter with the awakened lion of Palestine aroused from slumber and the roaring Intifada of an arisen people at the end of their patience "The outcome of this eventful process backed all along by the power and wealth of Britain and America with their disgraceful support for Zionist criminals is the present unsteadiness uncertainty and despair among the leaders of the usurper regime and their encounter with the roaring and rising waves of Islamic awakening "It is true that Palestine still remains the scene of most heinous crimes by the Zionist usurpers and foreigners against the ands oppressed owners Most barbarous and unparalleled acts of inhumanity are flagrantly committed and proudly announced by the Zionist regime But a glance at the record of this  drama reveals a startling and instructive reality which is nothing other than a drastically changed scene and a shifting of power across the fronts inside Palestine as well as beyond it within the Middle East and across the Muslim world for whose longterm subjugation basically the disastrous usurpation of Palestine had been planned and executed by Western statesmen "Consider the Palestine of the 40s a land in the heart of the Arab world an unaware people an impoverished country under a weak government with colonial puppets as its neighbors "The wealthiest the most well armed and nefarious of Western powers urged on by the Zionists wrests this country from its Muslim people and hands it over to a racist rapacious and terrorist party "All Western governments as well as both the worlds rival political blocs support it The regions puppet regimes such as Pahlavi Iran and some others betray Islam and Arab identity to place themselves at its service "Money arms science and technology are put at its disposal from all sides The United States acts as its patron attorney and steward and this is the only matter regarding which the Soviet Union has no dispute with the United States UN resolutions despite their weak and cautious tone are totally ignored by the fake and lawless Zionist regime "Encouraged by US and European support it launches military attacks on Egypt ,Syria, Jordan and Lebanon and invades their territories with the intent of permanent occupation "It raves recklessly and threatens with assassination murder and pillage Notorious terrorists attain to high office one after another the last of them being the infamous war criminal of the Sabra and Shatila massacres "For several decades the usurper regime maintains its violent intransigent extortionate and irrepressible face on the Palestinian scene "On the opposite front following the initial weakness and friability and failure of half done efforts of the early years experiments are made one after another "The theoretical and practical products of nationalism Marxism and the like fail the tests "Religious faith held strongly by the people gradually creates shimmers of light on the narrow and bleak horizon with the courage of patient and tread fast combatants "At the moment all of a sudden the sun of the Islamic Revolution rises in the east There the name of Palestine was written on the high banner of this Divine revolution with the name of God and Islamic shariah "This was a point of departure in the course of events and with it began the unraveling of the usurper regime and the decline in the region of the absolute dominance of the United States which had been a consistent collaborator of the usurper regime in its crimes "There emerge Jihadist groups in Palestine and Lebanon with faith in Islam constituting a new generation of genuine and unswerving combatants "The values of Jihad and martyrdom are revived and the genuine power that of a nation resolute in its spirit of firmness and sacrifice recovers its place in the political equations of Palestine and the region "The noble blood of martyrdom seeking youths and the presence of dauntless warriors within the struggle invalidate all calculations f worldly materialists and hedonists opening a new arena where blood triumphs over sword "Today after those trying beginnings the forces of truth now fresh and resolute with revived hopes and motives grounded in faith things that absorb the young generations continue to grow stronger day by day in Palestine and marching with their heroic jihad towards manifest victory inflict on the enemy a series of military and political defeats one after another in Palestine and Lebanon "It appears as if the following words of God were addressed to them "Allah has promised you abundant spoils which you will capture "He has expedited this one for you and withheld men hands rom you so that it may be a sign for the faithful and that He may guide you to a straight path And other [spoils] which you have not yet captured Allah has comprehended them and Allah has power over all things.(2006/04/14)words of leader of Iran

I agree with you. I am a Finnish man and in a history Finland has gone through almost the same what happened in Palestine in those days. The Russians tried to conquer Finland during the WW II but Finland survived. However Finland suffered big losts. Many men, women and children died under the fire of the Russians, the big and important areas of Finland granted to Russia, including the homes and properties of the people who were forced to flee. The state of Finland were also forced to pay the huge amounts of war reparations to Russia, who claimed it was Finland who started the war. In those days the whole world accepted Finland as a guilty for that war.

Nowadays it has come to commonly known that it was actually Russia who started the war. Have they paid back the war reparations? Have they given back the granted land areas? Have they even begged forgiveness for the families who lost their fathers, mothers and children? No. They haven't done anything like that. Should the people of Finland have started to shoot rockets to St. Petersburg or Moscow? Should the people of Finland even today stick in the past crimes and stop living in peace and rise the weapons against the Russians?

There were over 800 000 people who fled from their homes and own lands. They were rehoused among the survived parts of Finland. Many people in Finland were forced to give a part of their land to the refugees to settle down and build a new home for their families. It was an emergency period in Finland after the war and there was shortage of almost everything but the Finnish people sticked together and managed to overcome the challenges.

My grandparents lost everything in those days. They lost their home, they lost their land and property. They succeeded to take just a few ordinary things with them before they had to leave. Just a few ours after that the Russian troops and aircraft were bombing the area they were living. I know I would have a legal right to demand those areas to myself but I have already a home in else where. My family have built a new life, even they didn't have money, they didn't have a home, they didn't have anything. They just had a will, they had perseverance and they had a goal in a better life.

What kind of country Finland is today? In every way measured Finland is one of the best countries to live in the whole world. Would Finland be like that if the people of Finland would have chosen the way of war and rocket strikes in stead of the peace? I doubt it.

What I am trying to say? It is never too late to turn the page and start to stick in the brighter future. This is possible if the people just keep their focus on the right things. The right things are peace, building the new homes and infrastruckture, education, creating new ideas and plans to get the better life for every people in that area. Someone just should start to do this.

War creates more war, rocket strikes create more rocket strikes .... peace creates more peace. Everything debends on choises and every human is responsible for their own happiness. I know this is more simple to say than do, but forgiving the old crimes and focusing the happy future should be a goal for every human in the Middle East. If this isn't the main goal for the people there, they are all maintaining the current situation. It doesn't matter if they are jews or moslems. They are all the same.

A truly excellent post, Osterpe! Those who think that Hamas is fully justified in continuing to fire rockets into Israel would have to support rocket fire from Native American reservations into U.S. cities, from Tibet into China, or (to use your own example) from Finland into Russia.

Hamas's charter is dedicated to the total re-conquest of Israel, by the charter's own terms, peace with Israel is forbidden. Thus, as long as Hamas and Israel continue to exist, peace is impossible.

It would make sense if you got your facts right.

First of all, and central to the current conflict, is the fact that Hamas's charter calls outright for the destruction of Israel. How is it possible for a country to have any sort of peace with an organization whose founding document calls for the elimination of that country? Peace will never happen between the Israelis and Palestinians until the Palestinians accept the reality of Israel's existence and are satisfied with a two-state solution. Regardless of whether or not one thinks that the establishment of Israel was fair and just, the reality is that Israel is just not going to pack up and leave. The likelihood of that is roughly the same as the United States returning all of its territory to the Native Americans. How do you think the U.S. might respond if its Indian reservations started launching rockets into Washington, New York, and Chicago?

Moreover, you are incorrect that Israel began to "shower Gaza with missiles" immediately after Hamas was blamed for kidnapping the three teens. Instead, on June 15, Israel responded by arresting Hamas members in the West Bank and placing other restrictions on Hamas. Hamas responded with indiscriminate rocket fire on the Israeli civilian population on June 16. Only then did the escalation of attacks by the Israeli Air Force begin.

Prophets of Israel, and prophesies concerning Israel/Jerusalem
Amos 1:6-8
Zephaniah 2:3-7 
Zechariah 12:1-3 - Jerusalem, a cup of trembling to all those round about... a burdensome stone
Malachi 3
Ezekiel 25:15-17
Psalm 83:1-10
So is Israel acting upon the scriptures, or are the prophecies of the scriptures being fulfilled ?
Self-fulfilling prophecy, or 20/20 vision in hindsight of history ?
Those with eyes to see, ears to hear, let them not be caught unawares.

Israel -
They try to do what is right even while doing what is wrong ?
"IDF sets up hospital for Palestinians near Gaza border"

Hamas -
hides among civilians, putting civilians at risk, in order to claim brutality of the defender

I'm dumbfounded and amazed that the people of Gaza can not see that it is Hamas that is bringing all the tragedy upon their families.

I keep trying to put myself in their shoes, to understand their thinking.
I do not understand.
If my government was firing rockets on my neighboring country and bringing about such devastating return attacks on my homes and my family, I would be angry at my government for instigating such things, for bringing this destruction on me.  I would be mad at them for hiding themselves and their weapons in my neighborhood, and among civilian populations, and at schools built in good faith for my children, and at the church of my God.
In my country I try to live away from military encampments in order to be safe... and this is possible.  This is a possible choice.

Well, Christians in the region understand it. Look up Julia Boutros for instance. She sings in praise of blessed Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah.

I pray Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah retaliate and take revenge of these innocent people soon and send the zionist entity to the depths of hellfire.
