    "If blowing up markets,soccer fields,murdering hundreds of thausands in Darfur,honor killings of woomen and endless other simmilar acts is not barbarizm..." #79 TOMY Ok, thanks for that. But the problem is that your argument isn't that satisfying, because Arab civilians are frequently killed by Jews too. You can argue that this is just collateral damage, but then I've seen a huge amount of posts and some articles by Israelis talking openly of collective punishment of Arabs. I also saw what happened to the civilians in Lebanon recently. And what's done in the territories. It just doesn't wash anymore really. I've also seen lots of posts to this forum (let alone right wing forums) of some sections of Israeli society calling for the mass punishment and/or expulsion of Palestinians, some based on religious texts. So if some of you are going to talk of Islam being "hijacked" (#50 Akiva) then what am I to make of this stuff done in the name of Judaism?
