How could one not agree, Israel is a NORMAL counry. Hell! it's top of the pile of normal countries. As the last paragraph of the above article states, Israel is "entitled" ok! I think we should petition the USA to supply them with "moe effictive" instruments of death. Restricting them to Apache gunships and such is "ANTI-SEMITIC". There is absolutly NOTHING immoral about "collective punishment". (Not since WW11 ended, anyway) If these Palestinians can't elect themselves the bunch of corrupt politicians which Israel approves of, then they only have themselves to blame. There is NO arguement against striking civilian targets in Gaza, after all, the Palestinians are targeting Israeli "OPEN FIELDS" mostly. Israelis run the risk of having little nasty holes all over the place and you know how dangeropus THAT can be if you are out for a stroll. I, for one, have no problem with the comparison to The Soviet Union, peas in a pod, I say.
