I hope its nice on whatever planet you come from. It's raining here. Mostly kassams, with scattered bullets. Forecast calls for protective clothing, anything bomb-proof would be appropriate. I know you aren't from EARTH, because around HERE, people DO lionize thier "fallen heroes" and 'martyrs'. I suggest reading the hamas charter for starters. Then perhaps the historical accounts you vaguely mention would provide some further enlightenment. Your lack of continuity with reality smacks of american liberelism. My guess is you studied at UC Berkely. EXPLAIN TO ME WHEN THEY EVER ASKED FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN THE DESTRUCTION OF ISREAL. These people DO NOT WANT PEACE. They want Israel to go away. EVERTHING they say and do is predicated on that basis, and it is usually an American that writes tripe like yours blatantly ignoring the basis of fascist muslim idiology. Are you Israeli Jew? You sound more like a UC professor writing from east Jerusalem.
