if you're in the mood for making yourself sick...look up how much AIPAC has gotten from the US

the amount is a lot in total numbers, but absolutely dwarfs every other country as well in per capita foreign spending.

If you're still a little confused as to why this current fighting is going on this is a fantastic, albeit long, article on why that I recommend everyone read:


For Hamas, the choice wasnít so much between peace and war as between slow strangulation and a war that had a chance, however slim, of loosening the squeeze. It sees itself in a battle for its survival. Its future in Gaza hangs on the outcome. Like Israel, itís been careful to set rather limited aims, goals to which much of the international community is sympathetic. The primary objective is that Israel honour three past agreements: the Shalit prisoner exchange, including the release of the re-arrested prisoners; the November 2012 ceasefire, which calls for an end to Gazaís closure; and the April 2014 reconciliation agreement, which would allow the Palestinian government to pay salaries in Gaza, staff its borders, receive much needed construction materials and open the pedestrian crossing with Egypt.

regardless of their aims being what's best for Palestine, Hamas's means cause so many more problems.

I do not think we can act as the moral arbiters of tactics when it comes to a colonized and oppressed people.

Agreed. Doesn't mean they are using the most intelligent means for their people.

Being the victim of oppression does not make one a less intelligent human regarding their tactics. Especially when said tactics can bring about harm to civilians.

We'll disagree on this until the end of time.
