As far as I'm concerned, leave them at it. They can knock themselves out or kill each other off for all I care. I've no sympathy for either side and no preference either
kinda like SF ?A guy called Dave said:The problem with Hamas is that their military wing is basically acting on it's own agenda. They have some smart people within their political administration but they're as undermined from their own military as by the israeli's.
Closer than you think. Problem is that whenever Hamas do try to bring in a military guy to the admin, the Israelis are quite keen on bumping them off.drbob1972 said:kinda like SF ?A guy called Dave said:The problem with Hamas is that their military wing is basically acting on it's own agenda.

sorry was just too tempting not to troll
HAMAS has existed since the first intifada, and Palestinian infighting dates back to the rejectionist front and even earlier. So I don't think this is something that's started in the last 18 months, nor is it another diabolical Israeli trick. Although Israel definately saw HAMAS as a useful counterbalance to Fatah's dominance, at least in the early days, it's not like they've loaded up the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade or the Al-Qassam Brigades with weapons and set them loose on each other. Not everything is a Jewish conspiracy, in other words.Xipe Totec said:It's a pretty old trick, and I'm surprised the Israelis have only started exporting the conflict in the last 18 months or so.
Also: the Israelis are a distraction? If you seriously believe that, I'd love to hear your evidence.

your a fool. this is not a problem that can be solved by a group hug palistineians don't teach there children hatred, the state of isreal does that through it's policies of attack an subjeation and treating that nation as little more than a bantustandfergalr said:Hamas indoctrinate children in the Gaza Strip and elsewhere to hate Jews. They're taught that Jews are subhuman and that they are cannibals. And of course they're offering social schemes... bread and circuses, whjatever keeps the people loyal. Or silent.
I'd like neither of these tantalising options. I'd rather see a massive peacekeeping force flood the Palestinian territories, disarm all violent groups and provide the basic living requirements needed by the population while a genuine, peaceful and democratic solution to the clusterfcukk that is Palestine is sorted out at a regional level.
Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said:The textbooks used in the Palestinian Authority school system, from elementary through high school, are replete with strong expressions of hatred towards Israel, negation of its right to exist and praise for the struggle against it, as well as antisemitic expressions against the Jews.
In these textbooks, Israel is described as "a country of gangs, born in crime." The Jews are arrogant and sly traitors, and Zionism is a racist movement and a "germ."
From this point of view, the Oslo Accords are described as "a move to get the Palestine Liberation Army into the territories," and support for jihad is emphasized.
You're coming across as a bit of a dick in a big way yourself ha ha.You're coming across as a bit of a dick.
There are direct quotes there and, while I'm sorry if the Anti-Defamation Leage and Israeli Foreign Ministry aren't good enough for you, I think they will satisfy a great deal of fair-minded people.
