Bethlehem at 4 AM

Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighbouring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free. – Dalai Lama (1989)

    Until 1990, during the 1st intifada, there were no roadblocks.The Paleos chose war and violence and terror. They lost the war that they chose.No they suffer because of their violence and terror.Tough shit.

    Israel has peace- everywhere except for Gaza and around Gaza. The way to get peace there too is to do in Gaza what we did in Jenin.If the Arabs also want peace, they’ll stop choosing war.Otherwise it’s naqba for them:<>< HREF="http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/Flash.aspx/138794" REL="nofollow">REPORT: FEWEST ISRAELIS KILLED SINCE THE 1980S<>According to a report prepared by security commanders, fewer Israelis were killed by terrorists in 2007 than in any year since the 1980s. Eleven Israeli soldiers and civilians were murdered by terrorists in 2007, as opposed to 187 in 2006. Approximately 300 Palestinian Authority Arabs were killed, almost all of them armed terrorists.Four Israeli soldiers were killed in combat this year, three in Gaza and one in Shechem. Three Israeli civilians were killed in a suicide bombing in Eilat. Two were killed by rocket attacks in Sderot, one was murdered in a shooting attack in Samaria, and one was stabbed to death in Judea.<>

    <>< HREF="http://anotherworldispossiblenow.blogspot.com/2007/12/burning-conscience-israeli-soldiers.html" REL="nofollow">Israeli Soldiers<><> speak out about their experiences as self-described “<>brutal occupiers of a disputed land<>.”These young men are surely not payed for that – on the contrary – they are brave to speak out and reflect about what it’s all about – there are people who are digging for the whole truth – not only propaganda pieces thrown at the people who don’t know to much in order to manipulate them !!!

    elisa,You’re grasping at straws. The desire to serve in the top IDF units is very high. There are far more applicants for each position than available positions.Because we know that our war against the terrorists is just.And we are winning.All we have to dois continue doing what we are doing untilthe terrorists either give up- or are all dead.Time is on our side. Justice is on our side. Allah is on our side.

    <>< HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/31/world/middleeast/31israel.html?pagewanted=all" REL="nofollow">What the figures disguise, however, is the undiminished fervor of young men volunteering to fight in combat units, which make up roughly a third of the army. The Golani infantry brigade, for instance, gets 10 applicants for every place.<><>

  8. Dear Moussa,Happy 2008 for you and the family. My best wishes also for Lebanon and for peace. Let’s hope…All the best,Sophia
