When the US stops committing atrocities, then we get to complain about the horrors of others doing it as if they're somehow worse.Recently, the US/NATO forces killed kids in Afghanistan.Didn't hear you chime in then about the horrors.
I am prevented from personal statements, so I cannot describe what you are in proper terms, but I will put it this way: are facts, context and history of any relevance to you, or do you just prefer to stick to an agenda of complete idiocy, without consideration of any of those 3?

Don't worry, there's plenty of us remaining happy enough to educate the clueless as necessary.

I don't understand why we let the tribal battles of people thousands of miles away become left/right political fodder in the US?

they are worse then animals for this....deal with it and stop trying to be all pseudo-intellectual about it with this half-ass analysis of yours..

"have the mindset that your enemies are 'worse then animals' this is what you get"

and why are you trying to find something "rational" about this?...again the Link, there was no "mindset"...this was mindless...it takes a special kind of "thinking" to see anything "mindful" about this and for that I feel for you....

RandomStudent....take your ass back to school...like, right now..
Let me spell it out for you, there are those in Palestine that think the Israelis are worse then animals, so they do that. There are those in Israel that feel like you do and they commit attrocities in Lebanon and Palestine which you can find ample evidence of in a google image search.

Simply put if you think your enemies are worse then animals then its easier to to inhuman things to them.\

Oh and doing ad hominim attacks based on a user's handle essentially means you have no good response and are admitting defeat.

This is wrong and sick but something tells me some conservatives around here are gonna use this to justify the IDF killing children.

Both sides are nothing more than sick thugs in a power struggle.

I say we keep our tax dollars out of Israel.

I don't know if any of the other pages in the thread have a link to the video of the carnage so I'll give one I found from Pajamas Media...

As I said, this statement is nonsense, and my experience with this situation predates your lifespan, by a wide margin in all liklihood:

The Beleaguered Christians in Bethlehem :: Hudson New York

"Christian families have long been complaining of intimidation and land theft by Muslims, especially those working for the Palestinian Authority.Many Christians in Bethlehem and the nearby [Christian] towns of Bet Sahour and Bet Jalla have repeatedly complained that Muslims have been seizing their lands either by force or through forged documents.Moreover, several Christian women living in these areas have complained about verbal and sexual assaults by Muslim men.Over the past few years, a number of Christian businessmen told me that they were forced to shut down their businesses because they could no longer afford to pay "protection" money to local Muslim gangs.

Next time you should read my post. Historically relations have been peaceful that is changing now in Gaza, but not as much in the West Bank. As I said there is discrimination, but there is no organized extermination of Palestinian Christians by Palestinian Muslims.

You are cutting out parts of my quotes out and creating strawmen to argue against.
