Let me be frank. This list is about security, but so long as people persist in posting lies to the list I will post facts.

No, when you "give" someone a part of your country it is now their country. They are no longer your guest. Nor do you have the right to attack them unprovoked.

Israelis are not guests in Palestine. Palestine is Palestine. Israel is Israel. The sooner the Palestinians realize that, the sooner true peace will come to the area.

This so-called "desperation" results in over 3000 unprovoked rocket and mortar attacks in one year? And Hamas persists on using Palestinian civilians as human shields for their attacks so that they can claim the Israelis target civilians any time they retaliate for repeated attacks.

Whose country are you talking about? Israel isn't occupying Palestine.

If the Palestinians want peace, let them stop attacking Israel. Israel is not the aggressor.
