See where that got them? Did anyone really remember that? Israel had greenhouses growing food in Gaza. The "Palestinians" turned those greenhouses into weapons smuggling centers.
As Captain Ed puts it, while answering Glenn(s) The Puppetmaster Greenwald:
That construct suffers from one problem — the lack of recognition of Israeli actions in the past. Israel has tried military action, occupation, withdrawal, a peace plan (Oslo), another peace plan (Wye River), yet another peace plan (Annapolis), blockade, ending the blockade, and a series of so-called “truces” that allowed the Palestinians to play a triangle offense and provoke Israel into action. What do all of these actions have in common? None of them worked.Israel had tried to have peace. It didn't work. Peace is only possible when both sides want peace. Israel has shown through their words and their actions that they want peace. The palestinians have show through their words and their actions that they only want to kill Jewish civilians.
Well, they got their wish. They kept killing Jewish civilians. And now Israel is responding to protect itself. If anyone has a problem with that, I suggest they go live in Sderot, where even the bus stops have been turned into bomb shelters due to the constant rocket attacks by Hamas and Hezbullah. See how much they like it.
