While I am not unsympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians, the thing is that NO ONE wants them. They’ve made nothing of themselves in all the years that they have been next to Israel, they’ve done nothing but foment trouble, they’ve been used as pawns by the other factions….and even before the Jews were emplaced they were never anything but half-assed goatherds….The regular people allow fighters to hide amongst them, then whine when there are civilian casualties…..they are unwanted by the Syrians, the Jordanians, and the Egyptians….either of which could have absorbed their population over the years……but they won’t.
And the Israelis aren’t innocent here, either…
Being surprised like this in a war zone is kinda foolish, doncha think?
If this isn’t a good example of why an armed civilian population is a Good Thing, then I don’t know what is.
