for all of the doomsday, right-wing prophets in this forum, i assume none of you spent serious time and energy investigating arab / palestinian prisoners in israeli jails? do you realize that israel jails HUNDREDS of minors? for what?...throwing stones at tanks and soldiers armed w/ weapons, at people who are occupying them. I have seen with my own eyes palestinians beaten, i have friends sent to israeli jail for being members of COMMUNIST movements at the university, ... israeli jails are no different than the rest of the middle east oppressive jail system, and you have THOUSANDS of Palestinians locked away for doing MISDEMEANOR crimes... and THESE are the terrorists you are talking about? There is a reason Hamas takes soldiers... it takes just one Israeli to rescue a thousand innocent Palestinian lives... just goes to show what Israel does is so much more disproportionate than Hamas... now, many Palestinian mothers can have their children and girls back to them... or, do you suppose, all those thousands are conspirators planning to blow up Israelis?
