    In the 1948 independence declaration, the state of Israel was formed within the boundaries defined by UNGA res 181, the remainder of the mandate territory is called Palestine and is currently occupied territory which is being illegally colonised by Israel. Disputed territory, sorry but it isn't. Take it to the The Hague is you want to contest International law. Just using dis-proportionate force and manipulating civil/military law to your own advantage is just plain wrong. It looks to many people as if you don't want peace, until you have gobbled up palestine. Well, I am afaid that your rabidness and brutality have now outraged a critical mass of public opinion. The genie is not going back in the bottle. Citizens of the world at large are becoming increasingly fed up with Israel acting as if only jews deserve equality under the law. The biased & inhumane treatment of the palestinians is no longer going to be ignored. Each new incident will fuel the outrage and quicken the use of sanctions. Even, our cowardly western politicians will follow their citizen's lead in due course. Most people can admire Israeli industrious nature, why not apply your talents to build long term security through commerce with your neighbours. The iron fist isn't the only strategy. Peace requires respect for your neighbour & freedom for the palestinians. Peace begins with talking to the PA & Hamas. Stop wasting time and get on with it. There are better deals on the table now, than there will be in the future. Bear in mind that they think you are a bigger terrorist than they have ever been. And many would agree. I for one would like to see a strong and morale Israel. I used to think there was one, but you let me down.
