Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
no polemic intended, but isn't it possible that if the u.s. were percieved to be more even-handed in its economic largesse in the region, israel might act a little less arrogantly?

Murdering civilians as punishment for the terroristic actions of hotheads is no way to win hearts and minds, and only fuels the fire.

why should palestinians be made to pay for hitler's genocidal follies de grandeur?

it seems israel assumes the world has a a priori hate-on for them, and lashes out like a bear trying to swat flies, when if they were percieved as being more generous and fair-minded to their neighbours, they would win much more respect.

England has much to answer for, historically, in this mess.
