    we may differ on whether israel committed war crimes in gaza (btw, are the qassams war crimes in your book?), & you're right that no people /ethnic group /religion is exempt as to the potential ability to commit the worst of acts, incl. genocide. your kick to the jews has no place here, though. many adherents to different ethnic groups will tell you how exceptional they are. but let's be frank. jews are not known to have committed genocide which is a serious term (nor are armenians & many others). christians have in the past. for some reason for the past few decades muslims of different origin, many of them arabs, h-a-v-e committed atrocities on an incomparable scale to anything in gaza, if not genocides then very close to genocides, killing hundreds of thousands of people. check algeria to sudan to iraq to east-timor. so we're not talking ability. we're talking about what's happening & it's massive. maybe you're a muslim. fine. but if you want to be true, don't fool around.
