The "He stated it" statement has nothing to do with my point, which you apparently missed entirely. Spelling it out for you, the point is that the hostilities pre-date the existence of the State of Israel.


The wall - which is mostly barbed-wire and electronics - despite what the BBC wants you to see - was erected for the purpose of reducing the bombing of families eating in restaurants. Guess what? Another point you choose to ignore is that since the building of the wall, the bombings in Israel have dropped dramatically (the recent attack was via the Egyptian border).

You claim Hamas said it was 'fine with Israel' - how is the world do you neglect the text of their charter, calling for destruction of Israel? What type of fairy-land argument are you trying to make?

Best of all (or should I say, most obnoxious?) is your continued turning of the facts on-their-head. Israel has already offered Arafat everything he could possibly hope for, including part of Jerusalem - and it wasn't good enough. They have given land, even clearing out their settlements - and all it has received in return is thousands of rockets and mortars. The self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza is rife with corruption, murder, and intimidation. The hardship is of their own making (Arafat, their beloved leader, stole $Billions). As for settlements? A ten-month moratorium had no results . . . until it was about to expire. Then the PA was willing to consider talks - but only for more moratorium. Sorry, kids, that's not how things work.

How would England handle someone lobbing rockets and mortars into Birmingham? Historically, you fire-bombed cities, like Dresden. By contrast, the Israelis dropped leaflets warning civilians an attack was imminent. No wonder you hate them so much! Something more current? These misunderstood friends of yours set off some bombs in your Underground - so you shoot an innocent unarmed electrician to death. The whole EU seems to run and hide (in the states, we'd say drop pants and bend over) because some mullah screams he doesn't like the cartoons you print in your newspapers!

Seems to me that, with that much control on your media, you've been fed quite a feast. My cat would bury such fare. Clearly, a product of your environment.
