I love how all of a sudden everyone is against Israel. Like the last 400 years hasn't happened. You want to know why Israel fights so hard? If you went to the Holocaust Museum there, you would know. Israel became a country where Jews can go without persecution from the rest of the world. But the Muslim radicals in Palestine didn't like the idea of Jews being able to live together in peace.

No need to be a cunt about it. That anon is correct. They don't give a **** about Jews living together. They're pissed because high-horse countries took land from them and gave it to the jews. You'd be pissed to if countries that thought they were better than you took some of your land and gave it to people just because they went through some **** . Especially if that country has a history of blaming ALL of your people for the actions the radicals take and start drone bombing the **** out of your homes and killing your children.

...Israel was given to the Jews by the British. Yeah, I'd be pissed off, but most of the fighting is religiously motivated.
#281 to #259 - John Cena (11/25/2012) [-]
Well you gotta remember Israel isn't innocent either; tell them to stop the embargo on Gaza and the construction of settlements in the West Bank and then maybe the other side would listen a bit more (Or at least lose more of their creditably).

Israel is far from innocent. I just hate seeing people say they are the "bad guys". It's not true. It's war. There is no bad side, people need to realize that.

Ehh.. there is usually a bad side in most conflicts... a peoples' motives usually aren't what make them bad though.. it's their means.
Murdering innocent civilians for example. You even mentioned the Holocaust, you seriously can't say that Nazi Germany's side was pretty bad in WW2.
User avatar #302 to #299 - makethingsworse (11/25/2012) [-]
The Holocaust was evil, the war was not. It was motivated by a people that felt victimized by the rest of the world. I can understand why they did what they did. But genocide can never be rationalized.

Hamas lobs rockets into Israel = Palestinians fight for their homeland?

No.
User avatar #115 to #104 - Shigekix (11/25/2012) [-]
Israelis started migrating into Palestine illegally and many countries didn't care cause they felt sympathy for the Jews after the Holocaust. Eventually when the numbers of Israelis increased, they forced the Palestinians out of their country and slowly started become the Jewish state, Israel. U.S. started supporting Israel for intelligence on Arab targets, you can guess why. About 5-8 Million dollars a day, I believe, go into supporting the Israeli military, and those rockets being launched into Palestine, were probably made in the U.S. so technically we were majorly involved in the recent conflicts, but you don't hear about it because of the controlled media by the Zionists. It's all ****** up and it's all politics but it really sucks when Palestine is being portrayed as the bad guy when really it's the Israelis who forced out the Palestinians for selfish gains...
User avatar #176 to #115 - durkadurka (11/25/2012) [-]
Israel was created by the UN from territory controlled by the British. The idea was to give the Jewish people their own land so they wouldn't be exterminated again.

When you're lobbing rockets into another country with no regard for what you're hitting (including your OWN people) you're the bad guy. Now obviously this doesn't apply to all arabs in the area, just the elements of Hamas.

Our tendency to send money to other countries is another discussion (but I think we and most of America would have similar opinions on the matter).

Hamas shoots a rocket to Israel (who rolled over, what members of Hamas used to called their homes, in tanks and forcing thousands of people to relocate) which lands in the desert and hurts no one.

Israel responds by shooting back at Gaza city, killing hundreds of civilians in the process, and wounding hundreds and hundreds more.

Hamas is not Gaza or Palestine. Hamas is an organization, Palestine is a nation.

No actually the arabs instigated almost every conflict with Israel. Every time they've tried to attack Israel, they've ended up worse than before.

And then when Israel tries to be decent and gives some land back (ie the Gaza Strip), they're repaid with rockets lobbed randomly into their country.

Yeah it's the damn Jews.

User avatar #175 to #174 - durkadurka (11/25/2012) [-]
Really? Come on.

"In 1967, as a result of the Six-Day War, Israel gained control of the West Bank (Judaea and Samaria), East Jerusalem, the Gaza strip and the Golan Heights. Israel also took control of the Sinai Peninsula, but returned it to Egypt as part of the 1979 Israel–Egypt Peace Treaty."

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel

If you really didn't know this, I'd be questioning everything I knew about Israel.
User avatar #186 to #175 - cullenatorguy (11/25/2012) [-]
And who started the Six-Day War? Israel.
User avatar #207 to #186 - durkadurka (11/25/2012) [-]
The side that initiates a conflict isn't automatically at fault. The Israeli initiation was preemptive in response to the forces of various countries massing near their borders. Before conflict began Israel warned the closure of the Straits of Tiran would be considered an act of war. They considered the Strait an international waterway, a stance backed by the Western Powers. Also note that on May 27th 1967, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser stated "Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight."

The conflict was not some Israeli sneak attack on unsuspecting neighbors. It was a build-up of tensions and troops until the point of war.

This stuff is very easy to research by the way.

Too bad the "Palestinians fighting for their homeland" have turned into nothing but a bunch of radicals murdering people simply for being different and simply for being over there. It's not wanting land back anymore.. it's just a hateful grudge and lust for vengeance.

#288 to #274 - twomd (11/25/2012) [-]
I noticed that too, but I figured the liberals would red thumb my ass dry. Israel launched a ground war after hundreds of rockets were fired at civilians every day, and people say that palestine is correct to do it. If you asked a Palestinian, "would you spend your paycheck for food for your kids, or for weapons to attack Isreal, what would the answer be? They're savages, and Israel will only attack personnel who are militaristic. Moreover, if any Israeli civilians die, then their government chalks it up as a mission failed...But Palestine would say, yeah a few women and children died at a school we held up, but none of our brainwashed radical 'soldiers' did.

TL;DR: Palestinians are savages, and If anyone thinks that Israel is in the wrong, I pity them.

Agreed. At least I'm getting some support here.
#295 to #288 - acquirecurrency (11/25/2012) [-]
I love how the media here always references the number of rockets being fired, since they don't want to admit that the rockets are **** constructions and most of them get shot down by Iron Dome (which is a good thing). The fact is that if the fighting between Israel and Palestine stops, then the right-wing Likud Party in Israel has no reason to exist, and thus they have every incentive to prolong the conflict and instigate further military action by both sides.

TL:DR: No it's more complicated than that.
#305 to #295 - twomd (11/25/2012) [-]
The rockets are **** construct, but most of them ARE NOT taken down, you may be able to find videos of rockets on youtube, where people here an air siren and have sub twenty seconds to take cover, that is emotionally demoralizing and could give children shell shock. the point is, if ONE rocket was launched from mexico to america for some spontaneous burst of anger or w/e, We would stomp the breath from their lungs. And I applaud Isreal for retaliating back at Gaza. People mention the number because the spoiled people like me cannot imagine what it would be like to wake up to the sound of a rocket in my back yard, let alone ten thousand. How is it more complicated matters because the rockets are, oh well, they're bad rockets. "Bad Rockets" Well they're ******* Medium Ranged Ballistic Missiles! so I dont give a damn if they're a poor kind of killing machines, because they're killing machines nonetheless.
#314 to #305 - acquirecurrency (11/25/2012) [-]
Israel has basically turned Gaza into a massive concentration camp. Israel can use airstrikes and drone attacks to kill anyone they damn well please, since all they have to do is cite terrorism and suddenly the killing of innocent women and children is justified. The settlements going on in the West Bank are another aggravation. If you consider Israel morally superior, is it acceptable for the US to give them our unconditional support given the way they have no recourse about attacking civilians, stripping Palestinians of all rights, and taking their land? And after all of this, do you expect the Palestinians to not fight back? Of course I am in disagreement with the violent tactics used by Hamas and Hezbollah, but I consider both sides equally despicable in this case. The difference is, my leaders have chosen to support Israel while I believe this isn't something the US should be involved in.
#327 to #314 - twomd (11/25/2012) [-]
Dude! Israel has recently started a ground war with Gaza, but before that HAD NOT been in there. They left! And they dont kill civilians intentionally, but HAMAS hides in public buildings and uses civilians as shields, so that Israel wont attack them, and sometimes they cant attack them because they know they dont want to kill any innocent people. The drones that were used to assassinate people were only used to kill HAMAS officers and generals, who wouldnt stop bombing Israel. And dude, we give gratuitous amounts of money to Egypt, who helps Gaza attack Israel under the radar. the only reason we give them money, is because they signed a peace treaty with Israel, and have since, been looking for ways to start conflict. Open your eyes please this IS more complicated... Egypt's people rebeled against the government for making peace, and now a new man is in power, and he is a Radical Muslim.
#356 to #327 - acquirecurrency (11/25/2012) [-]
Morsi just brokered the cease-fire and has proven to not be a radical. Anyway, I need to sleep so I'll end like this. If we are honestly going to seek a solution to this problem, then you have to recognize that Israel is not going to help the situation by doing airstrikes into the densely populated Gaza Strip and continuing to encroach on the West Bank with settlements, because that gives the extremists Muslims every incentive and a cause to rally public support for a war. That in turn gives the right-wingers in Israel justification for war. And voila, you have right-wingers on both sides manipulating their populations into war so that they can retain their political power. Any real solution will have to come from reasonable Palestinians and peace-seeking Israelis, and while the current conflict is terrible (4 Israelis killed, Hundreds of Palestinians killed) hopefully Morsi and Clinton can help....but realistically the cycle of war will most likely repeat over and over...damn it's sad. But you can't just blame one side.
#509 to #356 - twomd (12/06/2012) [-]

#325 to #295 - occamsrazor (11/25/2012) [-]
Does it matter how many rockets hit anywhere? All it shows is they just have bad aim and they're still trying to murder as many Israeli civilians as possible. If a Mexican cartel shot 500 rockets into Texas and none hit a single person, you think America would just stand around with its dick in its hand or retaliate? And further if we do retaliate and kill some cartel members in the attack would we be branded war criminals by the world for killing innocent people who never killed anyone here?
#332 to #325 - acquirecurrency (11/25/2012) [-]
No, my point was not that the firing of the rockets was acceptable, but rather that it was an exaggerated threat by the Likud Party and pro-war people in general. It is not acceptable, but I guess I didn't make my point clear there, my bad :P
#339 to #332 - twomd (11/25/2012) [-]
It is not a hyperbole either. A ****** , poorly constructed, cheap gun like an AK-47 can still kill a lot of people. But is it that an exaggeration? No they were mass produced by many nations to kill people, despite no, because they were cheap. So these cheaply made, poorly aimed rockets, are, well, they're still ******* rockets. And they would still turn your bones into a paste.
