||Well there is a thing that, after palestinian, has fired about 10000 rounds of ammo from their side to housing in israel, to an israel village, they call CNN as soon as they see any israeli movement, and BANG you see israel tank shoot palestinian building, where that man was.
The thing is that CNN always gets there too late to see palestinians shoot israel, but mainly when israelis retaliate. Its obvious why it is so. CNN reacts about as fast as israel to palestinian shooting. And the reason there is less israeli deads is that they have better medical support, and they dug behind bullet proof armours. While there are many palestinians willing to "Get to heaven by dying in holy war."
I have a question IF you have a pistol, and there would be a youngster gang of negroes coming towards you in situation where you cannot for some reason leave, perhaps you are at dead end, or your son is there and he cannot out run them. They only have baseball bats which they would use to hit you, and they just hit your friend to a leg with one, next to you, WOULD you SHOOT that 16-18 year old ganster who is about hit you with a baseball bat to your head, even if it would be "WRONG to shoot a child." or "They don't have guns against you, you are wrong to shoot them.", Or if the gang was indian "They were here first anyway."
The stones the palestinians where trowing before are as effective as baseball bats, and with group of them, will effect as much as group of kids hitting you with a baseball bats. WOULD YOU SHOOT THEM BACK, IF THEY CAME TO you to YOUR neighbour hood, AWAY from their own neighborhood to hit you with the baseball bats.
OR would you shoot them back what ever you have even if its stronger weapon if they shot at you from their neighborhood, to yours. Even with military level weapons... Now consider that you don't have place where to move away from your current house except for streets, where they may come NEXT after getting your house.
And their history ISRAEL originally bough the land before the independence war. EVERY war that israel has EVER figh has been ARABS attacking israel, and Israel beating them, and taking some buffer zone between their residents and the border, so that they wouldn't loose so many lives when arabs attack next time. Besides, Israel handles the palestinian problem far more human, than other arab nations dealing with their inside revolts. Lets put this way they EXECUTE every man in the village that has been part of revolution, bomb and slaughter everyone on the site, not a single mercy. Now arabs are revolving inside israel borders, israel shoots couple of the revolving arabs, and gets your disgrace. What the heck is wrong with you guys, you perfectly accept slaughter of 10 000 civilians, with just oh they are killing their own, big deal, but if israel shoots couple of soldiers for revolution they get huge blame.
Is that because you have more prejudice against israel than arab. Or is it for the fact that CNN reporters mainly get too late to see what arabs do and and make these things great news.
Oh yeah, Islamics kill far more christians in a month than jews have killed arabs in a year.
Its just that those sites are not interested by CNN to report and besides the strong party there doesn't allow any reporters to get there and there would be high risk for reporters to get shot there so they won't cover those. So you claim the evilness of those sites that the strong party is good enough to let reporters do their job, than those who stop reporterst doing any job and murder thousands per day. Not in single site but in larger area. To you its hard to believe but their religion dictates this behaviour, they have their JIHAD, holy war against unbelievers.
Unfortunately Arafat has learned the power of media when he killed full bussload of school kids back in 70's, or was it early 80's but then he have realised how to use media as weapons, and kids as bullets. He talks those kids about jihad and how they should DIE for the cause and go to heaven trough that. And beside when arafat last time talked about ceasefire in media the number of arab attacks have increased about 30%.
He tells his own people to IGNORE what he says in media, and to continue assault as much as possible. Its war. And media is one of the weapons of it.
Now one thing here to make sure that every one knows, I'm not jew, nor arab.
I'm from western europe, I know some white normal people who had been in the Israel during it started and their story what they saw was not the thing CNN shows. [As they had to take out the lights so that snipers couldn't see in their houses, when they put their lights on and moved something in the windows they needed new glass there. Everyone turned their lights off so that snipers couldn't see them. Now Israel has communists who are apologist, and try to go with arafat and to give him what he want's for trying to get the peace, and when they got in power there,(Oh god, I'll hope communist never gets power here.) they gave arafat much of what he wanted, and armed his "police". The arabs in israel side of border don't even want to get under arafats control, because that's even more corrupted goverment than Russia ever was.
Oh yeah and PLO:s (the arafats organisations.) their goal still is to get rid of nation of israel and it's still written in their manifest.
Arafat's personal goal has long been the total annihilation of israel, and the oslo peace process was just a way to get MORE power, and reduce israeli land area in order to have better chance in total destruction of israel.
