    How is it that Israel is a spoiled child? They are a sovereign nation with the right to decide what happens within the boundaries of their country. Who really is the spoiled child here? Who has refused to sit at the negotiation table until they get their own way? Who are the ones that stall the so-called peace process more often by violating cease fire agreements? Any other country would not go along with the constant aggression against them. And what right does the international community have to tell Israel what to do to protect themselves? Are other countries open to be subordinate to another government? Isn't that one of the fundamental ideas behind being sovereign? Being able to make decisions regarding their future and their development? How is it that the Palestininan government - which by the way is not a sovereign nation - make claims on land that is not theirs? Can they dictate the process for something they hope to have in the future? Please, give me a break.
