what will it take to stop the terrorist attacks?

when israel had settlements in gaza, terrorists were attacking israel

after israel removed all settlements from gaza, terrorists continued attacking israel

now that israel is targeting terrorists & bombing their installations in order to protect its citizens, which is 1 of the primary responsibilities of any national government, terrorists r attacking even further into israel than ever b4

these terrorists simply refuse 2 take a hint, even a deadly 1. they're suicidal, with no concern even 4 the lives of children

in my opinion, there's a theological aspect 2 the terrorist attacks

here's a way to interpret 1 of the last lines of the amidah prayer:

"For by the light of Your 'face,' You have given us the Torah of life, and the love of kindness, & righteousness, & blessing, & compassion, & life, & peace."

i think that at least part of the problem is that radical islam loves neither life nor peace, valuing death (by "martyrdom") and war instead.

pls pardon poor typing--2 broken wrists

Well miss Salomone, who knows?
The broken wrists (had them myself hundreds of years ago, fell of the haystack) might be a warning by some higher power.
If you'd switch back to the left side of the religious spectrum you might find a silver or even golden coin on the sidewalk.
A stranger might greet and bless the day, who knows!?

"The broken wrists . . . might be a warning by some higher power." a warning that i should avoid israeli folk dancing?

"If you'd switch back to the left side of the religious spectrum . . ." when did i leave it? i'm still a tallit-&-tefillin-wearing egalitarian

have u considered actually addressing the subject of this post?

Negative, there is no need to adress a subject like this, we do have our mutual goverments to solve out problems like this, alone or with the help of the U.N.

Most of what the UN does "officially" is usually pointless, with the rare exceptions when it actually musters a majority for some humanitarian intervention or or votes on some bizarre resolution a la zionism is racism. The true value of the UN is not what you see, its what you don't see -- the discussions in hallways, the unauthorized contacts and the back channels. That's the whole purpose of the place.

Glad to see you're on the mend.

so the UN is useful mainly as "neutral territory," a safe place 4 diplomats who normally wouldn't--or couldn't--talk 2 each other 2 do so? an interesting point, steve

Exactly. The UN facilitates conversation. Of course, Manhattan is a big part of that. Lots of people ... easy to blend in ... coffee at Starbucks ...
Conversation doesn't always lead to immediate action; but its extremely valuable. Its hard not to think that some of the less than pro-Hamas reaction of the arab governments (yeah, I know, not very representative of the arab street) isn't a function of discussions which can take place privately in a place like or around 42nd St and 1st Ave.

On the other hand, if you want a good look at idealism, ideological purity and a healthy dose of political naivete regarding the situation, follow the conversation over at Jewschool

I believe the same goes for radical zionism

I have yet to see a video of a radical Zionist grabbing a child & dragging the child down the street in front of him/her as a human shield.

It does not matter how many crapy posts you publish, the truth is out there and the media is covering every single crime you commit. And for that the journalists are being murdered as well by the IDF! You are revealed as well as your massacres, so don’t even think that anyone would believe your lies ever again! Actually posting such garbage shows how low and dirty you can get!! Twisting facts and playing the role of the oppressed! How shameful! keep the bull sh!t flowing, it only shows the truth about you jerks!

Hamas is defending gazzans like no one ever did! For arabs and muslims women and children are the first to be protected and saved, so those really exposed to our culture would know that. Sadly, Palestinians don’t have the kind of shelters you have! You forced those people to evacuate their homes, you distributed the flyers and even when they did get out of their homes and took the UN school as a shelter, you didn’t save them your barbaric attacks and actually killed them!

When the statistics show that 50% of those being murdered and severely injured in Gaza are women and children, then that shows what kind of war you are raging! Ethnical cleansing it is! So the propaganda about you haunting the resistance fighters of hamas is all in the open now and you are so busted! Not to mention the hospitals, tens of ambulances and paramedics being attacked; and the tens of children and women locked up under their knocked down homes while your forces preventing medical care from reaching them!

Now, you even question the UN’s credibility although not much of an action has been taken against you! 18 months of blockade and gaza suffered severely! Starvation, lack of medical supplies, no electricity and now this!!! how far would you go to get us out of our country you occupiers!! Let those who support israel host you at their land and we’ll all live in peace!!!

You have been raised by Nazis and you act just like them and even worse. After all, that’s all you know, destruction, killing people, and occupying a land that is not yours! You have always been a liability to the west (Europe) and they couldn’t wait to dump you on someone else’s back! And now we have to deal with you, you baby killers!

And finally, I bet any one of those who support this blog to prove or back up their claims with tangible evidences! Liars!

"Sadly, Palestinians don’t have the kind of shelters you have!" Could that be because they'd rather pay for weapons than for shelters to protect their own people? Even the Gush Katif evacuees, many of whom are now living in flimsy caravillas (trailers) have been provided by the government with concrete sewer pipers in which to take shelter.

"how far would you go to get us out of our country you occupiers!!" What occupiers? In case you haven't noticed, Israel withdrew both its settlers and its armed forces from Gaza all the way back in 2005.

"You have been raised by Nazis and you act just like them and even worse." This is your 1st & last warning: The next time you accuse Jews of acting like Nazis, I will delete your comment.

The only rule I've ever had for my blog is that comments must be expressed in respectful language--I see no reason why insults must be used just because one person disagrees with another. You broke that rule many times over in your comment. Consider yourself fortunate that I didn't delete *this* comment of yours, but I will certainly delete any future comment of yours if it is phrased in such an insulting manner.
