Israel has a U.S. made and supplied "Iron Dome" air-defense system for protection against Palestinian rockets. Shouldn't the Palestinians have a similar system supplied by the U.S. for their protection?

Sometimes it seems as though Israel uses Palestinian land as a proving ground for new military equipment and target practice.

All Hamas and Hizbollah have to do is quit shooting rockets at Israel and they won't NEED an Iron Dome.

How hard is that to understand?

Palestine needs to be good little neighbors to Israel and give up all of their homes and farm land to any Jew who thinks they want to build their own home there (settlements).

Those rockets are coming from Gaza. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Israeli's give that place up a few years ago?

Between the right's obssession with controlling women's uteruses and the left's obssession with a group of hyperreligious, nationalistic, narcissistic nihilists Muslims who want to create yet another Islamic hellhole I sometimes don't where to scream first.

Well, if the religion of peace loving Palestinians would stop launching all the missiles then Israel wouldn't be forced to reply.

I'm for them flattening a little or large part of the other side since the other side has no problem launching thousands of missiles against Israel.

Exactly! If the a$$holes would leave Isreal alone they would need no protection. Liberals seem to have a problem understanding this.
