@Shirley: Israel has a legitimate right to self defense. However, taking Palestinian territory as a quote "safety buffer" and then populating it with Jewish Settlers does not pass even the simplest test of logic. A buffer must be depopulated in order to protect the people BEYOND it. Israel puts it's Jewish civilians inside the buffer, then complains about safety when they are attacked. So spare me your Zionist double standard, I'm not buying it.
