Ummm......I'm not going to comment about what lead to it, what transpired during, or the rights or wrongs of the outcome....but I am pretty sure that there was a fairly large scale armed conflict in which both "sides" "freely" (trying to indicate that I don't know what "sides" or "freely" means) participated in and ended with the occupation of the Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and West Bank. Usually called war, but whatever.
Once again - people get mad, try solve things with high velocity projectiles and the like, bad things happen, blood lust ensues and eventually all some people know is hate & revenge - and from there it just goes on and on and on, so forth and so on, at nausium (sp - sorry) and here we are today.
Do people hate Israel.....I don't see how that is possible...I don't know anything about it....so I'm not sure how that might happen. I do believe that the world is tired of the endless cycle of violence coming from the Middle East which typically always seems to be aimed a the most innocent and helpless simply to shock and awe us into some sort of reaction...
All I know for sure is that I don't know anything for sure. With the media pumping whatever propaganda that they believe will result in the greatest viewership or marketshare or dollars, I'm not sure who to believe.
