Meanwhile, Israel shits on the Gaza strip, possibly to distract everyone else from the thing that they can do something about. Seriously, this is the first I've heard of hostilities with Syria, but I've seen a ton of stuff about the recent Gaza hostilities.

Europe actually learned from the holocaust, the middle east seems intent on repeating it again.

I would guess it's because the constant barrages of rockets were starting to get annoying.

It's funny how you erased the people who were being maimed and killed from that picture. Actually, that's not particularly funny... actually, it's not funny at all.

This week itself, while Israel has been fighting back, I don't suppose that many. How many in the medium-recent term? I recall 11 killed, more wounded - but I could be off on that.

That the figure is that low is not for lack of trying.

Today nine people died by the hands of the IDF, last thursday 3 israeli civilians died, and 10 palestinian civilians died.
Anyway, each side doesn't give a fuck about the other side. Things will continue to spiral out of control I'm afraid.
