Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have fired more than 30 rockets at southern Israel, officials say, the heaviest barrage since November 2012.
Israel may claim that it is only building "balconies" in "Jerusalem", and that the attacks from the Palestinians are unjustified because of that.
But when you consider how Israel encroached upon territory the Palestinians had lived on for millenniums (and in a more sustained fashion than the Jews), and the ill treatment the Israelis have shown to the Palestinians that's NOT related to defensive purposes, you're less able to accept the Israeli's claim that they are the "poor little country" in the middle of a hostile sea of opponents.
Quite right that they're isolated there.
Honestly, it's as if the "Jews" of Israel (and I use parentheses for the fact that I don't consider the likes of Bibi Netanyahu and his sympathizers as true Jews, in spite of their "purity") don't seem to get or accept how they play a role in creating the conflict that's happening around them.
It's like a child harrassing a much larger child repeatedly, and then wondering how it is that the larger child is angry at it! Where is the social connection between two people that exists in normal, healthy relationships? Where is the basic compassion and openness that has defined Jewish tradition for all these millenniums and centuries? Has that all been lost on the conservatives? Or, should I call them, the "Yahus"? Because they are acting like Yahus; the demon spawn "humans" who have walked amongst us and been the cause of all our wars, nastiness and violence.
It's just a pathological brain type that we're up against with these "people", and nothing more. Just a delusional, confused, bigoted, mean-spirited and small-minded brain type.
Think about it.
