This, in my view, demonstrably is NOT a blame game discussion. I also believe that all members who are NOW in limbo and who are prepared and able to discuss issues rationally and with civility should no longer be undead.
To begin, please note that ever since Israel ceased occupying Gaza:
Hamas's rockets aimed ONLY at CIVILIANS have killed and terrorized civilians ===> Clear WAR CRIME
Israel's blockade of Gaza was intended to be limit Hamas's access to weapons ===> Clearly has not worked.
None of those who smugly criticize Israel's disproportionate response, now or before, offer a viable proportionate response.
Paul never experience living in the situation where you have no state and people question your right for nationality. we have many self-claimed peace makers everywhere. They do not understand the the "Inter-National law" is agreement between nations that so far did not accept the Palestinian Nations as a full member,
This is way they bring International law smiling thinking thay "proved" to be supporting the just side of the conflict but actually deepen the gap between you and me with their activity in this site.
The situation in Gaza & WB cannot be solved throgh a "international law" and both sides try to use it to gain points .... while Gazans are being killed (so far 400, UN say out of them 100 civilians in Israel 4 civilians).
Due to the Gazan stateless situation the world have responsibility toward the civilians and need to create a level of civilian support and safe haven.
