    Your statement was either factually incorrect or misleading through omission on all points.

    Israel did not fire a rocket into any place that might be referred to as Palestine, nor into anywhere else. Gaza-based militants fired a rocket into Israel. This was followed by an Israeli airstrike in Gaza, which still did not involve rockets. This took place more than one day after a court struck down the inclusion of Hamas on the list of terrorist groups, not because the evidence showed it was wrong to include it, but because of a technicality. EU representatives have declared their intention to re-list Hamas, following appropriate procedure. The sanctions against Hamas have not been removed, but remain in place.

    Hope Hamas get blown to shreads. Then the people of Gaza might actually improve their quality of life.

    Gaza and it's people will be wiped off the map and in 100 years time you will have all forgotten about it because it's hate and anti-Semitism to talk about their crimes.
    Long live the Palestinian struggle.

    Maybe Hamas will eventually learn they can't indiscriminately bomb people. Actually, they won't, they'll continue to just use the people of Gaza as an extortion, and rhetoric call against any retaliation Israel use.

    It could be a poorly concealed agenda to annex Gaza so that Jerusalem is free from non-jew around its periphery. But what still baffles me is US' stance on Israel and how they continue to regard them as an "ally".

    Israel have given up any hope of colonising Gaza in the same way they are the West Bank. It's simply too small and too densely populated. The settlements there required too much attention and resources to be worth maintaining.

    Tis a shame. Israel is not perfect but i really don't see why people support the formation of another poor, Muslim state that has also showed the world it's people are happy to be led by ultra-religious nutters.

    Israel has 'slammed' paying Lebanon for the oil spill. Which was roughly 850mn dollars.

    I'd much prefer a Palestinian resistance movement that is secular and progressive, like the Kurdish resistance movement (mostly) is. But that's a separate question to whether the Palestinians deserve human and political rights.

    Generally if you're under siege your cities are surrounded by other people's troops, rather than the other way round, as is the case with Israel.

    Hamas is only a symptom of the Palestinian oppression. Hamas came into being much later after Israel started its oppression and terrorism. After the birth of Hamas it was much easier to justify its terrorism.

    All who are calling for the destruction of Hamas as the solution to this conflict should learn their history.

    Do you also wonder why Palestinians want to kick Israeli occupation out?

    Israel was set up through the UN yet the US has to do veto dozens of resolutions against Israel. If not for the US, Israel would have been seen as a rogue state breaking international law day in, day out.

    If the UN betrays Palestine once again then Palestine has no other option but to self-destruct. And we know what that means to Hamas.

    What a big surprise, the US protects Israel once again in the Security Council. The US says no to unilateral moves, but wait a second, what about when Israel makes unilateral moves, like annexing large swaths of Palestinian land, or building an Apartheid barrier, 85% of which is built on Palestinian land, or imposing an illegal blockade of Gaza, and the list goes on and on ... The UN is a puppet show when a vote like 8-2 is basically a vote like 5-5!!! The 5 permanent members ought not have veto power to resolutions. Many have been scuttled in the past by the US concerning Israel, even when the votes are 14-1. What a joke to pretend that you are an honest broker in the conflict in which you protect one side, arm one side, dismiss war crimes investigations against the one side, and all the while claiming to be working for a just solution.

    The Uk another lap dog of the US also voted no, this will only further fuel extreemism and hatred in the region. The Palestinians are always told to take the peaceful route but when that fails again and again what do you do.

    Also another surprise it is recieving minimal to no coverage on the BBC.

    Maybe if eastern European colonization of Palestinian land was ended they would resort to throwing rocks at heavy armored tanks
