I imagine that's a pretty good snapshot of the pulse of the Palestinian, and pan-arab, opinion. Makes it really hard to have any sympathy towards the innocent civilians are killed when Isreal fires at launch sites on top of schools, apartment buildings, etc.
A lot more Americans would be sympathetic if they understood the history better. The Palestinians got shafted in 1948. Western Europe's answer to the aftermath of Hitler's 'final solution' was to dump them in Palestine (and the Jews were glad to leave; who could blame them?)BUT (and it's a huge but) I have no sympathy when you start murdering people in cafes, shooting mothers taking their children to school, etc. No matter what your cause, nothing justifies or can legitimize these acts. As soon as you do these things, I don't care what you cause is. You must be stopped and can not be allowed to win.So while I understand where the Palestinians are coming from, as long as they continue use terror-tactics and murder innocents, I can't support them.The problem w/the Palestinians is that they never choose good leaders. If they had followed a Gandhi of MLK type figure they would have their own state by now. Instead they follow thugs, terrorists and would-be tyrants.
Yup, what Mike said. The Palestinians keep shooting themselves in the foot and then ask for sympathy
