You want an end to it? Stop the rockets and suicide fanatics...Everything Israel does is in retaliation to these Muslim attacks.

The government should take its anger on Hamas, not the innocents, because the innocents are always their target. How do you expect to have no suicide bombers and fanatics, if Israeli continues to oppress them until today

Israel does not target innocents...That is what Muslim terrorists do. These terrorist have not a hope in hell of defeating Israel, but as long as they continue their terrorist tactics of killing innocents the atrocities will go on. It seems hopeless at this point..Nothing much has changed in over 60 years and nothing will till the insanity stops.

If Palestinians allow Hamas to hide behind their women and children, and Hamas sends rockets and suicide bombers to Israel, then it is the Palestinian who is responsible for the death of their people.

All the Palestinians do is whine and cry and act like little girls. Do not expect sympathy from anyone until they grow a pair and start acting like civilized people.

Well currently you have Mahmoud Abbas who have been sucking up for the last 4 years, but no peace have been accomplished in the west bank lol, Israel still builds houses illegaly on the west bank, they dont really take him seriously. How do you expect Hamas to be a puppet, if Mahmoud Abbas treats Israel with respect and still gets owned by Israel.

The Qassam rocket threat against Israel began in 2001, when Hamas first unleashed their newest weapon against Israel, at a time when Gaza was under the complete control of the Palestinian Authority (PA) led by Yasser Arafat. The number of rocket launches between 2002 and 2005 steadily increased, even after the death of Arafat in 2004. Although Mahmoud Abbas publicly called for an end to the rocket fire in 2006, Qassam rocket attacks targeting Israeli civilian population centers has continued unabated.

In August 2005, Israel evacuated all settlements and withdrew its troops from Gaza with the expectation that progress toward peace would follow. Instead, the number of rocket attacks increased by more than 500 percent. During 2005, 179 rockets were launched at Israel from Gaza. That number increased to 946 strikes in 2006 after Hamas’ parliamentary victory in the January 2006 elections.
Palestinian Qassam Rockets Pose New Threat to Israel

Quote:
December 24, 2008: After a six-month negotiated lull in rocket attacks, Hamas resumed its campaign of terror by launching dozens of rockets and mortar shells on Israeli civilians. On December 24 alone, more than 60 rockets and mortar shells rained down on major civilian population centers in the southern Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Netivot. Hamas has also threatened to resume its campaign of suicide bombings inside of Israel. These latest statements and actions by Hamas only serve as further proof that the terrorist organization is committed to Israel's destruction.

The United Nations humanitarian chief today voiced his concern at the impact of indiscriminate rocket attacks against Israel during a visit to the town of Sderot, an area severely affected by bombardments from the Gaza Strip.

“The people of Sderot and the surrounding area have had to live with these unacceptable and indiscriminate rocket attacks for seven years now. There is no doubt about the physical and psychological suffering these attacks are causing,” said John Holmes,

“There are no military targets in this city. These victims here are innocent civilians. There is no time to lose in putting an end to this vicious circle of violence. More violence will not bring peace to the people of Sderot,” Mr. Holmes said.

This is a list of 2008 rocket and mortar attacks on Israel, by Hamas and Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip. This was part of a rapidly escalating attacks by Hamas on Israel. Until the ceasefire in June 19 2008 2378 rockets and mortars were launched. This is more than the 1,639 attacks launched in all of 2007, the rate of fire per month had increased more than 240%. A six-month 2008 Israel–Hamas ceasefire was agreed to by both sides and began on June 19, 2008.[1] Rocket and mortar attacks still continued throughout the cease-fire although less frequently than before the cease-fire went into effect. A total of 20 rockets and 18 mortars were launched from the signing of the ceasefire until the beginning of November.

Hamas is a criminal organization made up of cowards and liars and so long as they represent the Palestinian people, the Palestinian people have no rights to any consideration what so ever.

Amen! And this is WHY there can be no respect or outrage or concern when Israel retaliates without mercy . . . Hamas and the Palestinians deserve none because they have none. They seek the annihilation of Israel, period.

There is a difference between collateral damage, which the Israelis inflict, and intentional random murder of civilians, which Hamas is guilty of. That isn't to say that Israel is innocent, but there is certainly a difference in degree.

That being said, however, as long as three major religions view Israel as a "holy land", there will be trouble. And the Palestinians have got a legitimate complaint concerning the takeover of land they had possessed for centuries. I view it as an insoluble problem.
