"However, their violence is not proportionate, nor equal to Israel`s, whose military capability is unsurpassed in the Middle East"(Ripley) Israel's response to Palestinian Arab violence in no more disproportionate than America's response to the Taliban in Afghanistan. You don't believe me? Then go find out the number of innocent Afghan civilians that have been killed as collateral damage by Americans, just in the last 12 months, since Obama came to power ... And just as you can't blame American soldiers for such statistics because of the type of warfare that the Taliban are imposing on them, you should apply the same standards to Israelis. Or are you saying that America's military capability does NOT dis-proportianately surpass that of the Taliban?
