*shrug* they are at war and have been for decades. Losing land and territory is a natural consequence of war.

I don't look at either side as the good guy, I just look at the pals and basically they've just been a failure at thier stated goal of wiping out the Israelis. As a result Israel is pummeling them.

Far too many Palistinians have no respect or value for human life. After decades of Israel providing for them, giving them food, water and shelter, they still attempt, and all too often succeed in murdering innocent Israelis. The fact that they launched rockets during Obama's visit is just an example for the contempt they display for him as well.

What will Israel be showing if it launches a preemptive strike on Iran?

Will that be defending itself?

Or will you be consistent with your logic and say an israeli attack on Iran will give Iran the 'right' to defend itself and destroy Israel?

Wouldn't it be crazy if a rocket hit near Obama while on the trip?

All the conspiracy types would be blaming Israel for a "false flag" assassination attempt etc.

I agree, can we do the same with Atlanta, Chicago and DC?

Here's another option: how about negotiating in good faith, work for a peaceful resolution of the conflict, and give up the fantasy that they kill every Jew in Israel and triumphant destory Israel completely??? Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon succeeded with that stategy.

No, because in the end they are part of us.

Did Israel stop oppressing the Palestinians during Obama's visit? No. Doesn't that say it all?

That isnt what I was even talking about here. I may be crazy but I am not insane. I can not be the only one to feel this way. When our POTUS is in the region, to talk to both sides. And one side actually continues what we all know it does and launches rockets at Israel.....that is astonishing to me. And worse when Obama lectures Israel, then goes and stands under a sign with a picture of a terrorist for the side launching rockets! WTH is going?! Show some spine and leadership!

He should have said "you know what, if you are actually going to continue to launch rockets, especially why I, the leader of the most powerful nation on earth, am here, I will not meet with you. And I certainly wont give a speech under a sign with a picture of that terror leader!" He couldnt have a religious symbol behind him at a university he spoke at once, but he can give a speech in front of that scumbag?!
