I am just sick of having to hear about attack after attack on innocent Jews in Israel lately. And I'm also dismayed at how the press is reporting this all.
Remember the two shootings on Israeli civilians a couple days ago? The press barely reported on the story and when it DID have a story, it was well below the fold and had headlines like "Two Jews reportedly killed by gunfire," as to say Jews aren't killed, just reportedly killed. I guess some people do not value Jewish blood as highly as the rest of the world's.
And the papers are making the Palestinians sound sooooo innocent. The Washington Post was saying that X many Israelis had been killed and X many Palestinians had been killed this week. No, the Palestinians were not killed, they were the KILLERS and were, thankfully, shot dead on the spot!
The real innocent people were the ones that were minding their own business when some cowards opened fire on them or blew them up.
Two shootings into crowds of Israelis in one day, killing something like three or four, injuring scores. Then another coward with explosives strapped to his body boards a bus and kills three to four more people there. Arafat's terrorist organization took responsibility for at least one of the shootings (that I have read) and other organizations have taken responsibility for the others.
When will these organizations stop terrorizing the people and displaying their pure hatred for Israel? Do these evildoers really deserve their own state? At this stage, I don't think so.

Well, "reportedley killed" is used when there is no way to independantly confirm a report...for example a few weeks ago the newswires were saying that "Mazar-e-Sharif had reportedly fallen" because their own journalists were not in the area. Otherwise the news service is on the hook if it is later proved false.
Neither side in the Israeli-Palestinian dispute is inncoent, both have engaged in horrible acts of terrorism, not just one side.

Pain is not cumulative. If one person feels X amount of pain, the total amount of pain felt is X. If a hundred feel X amount of pain, still only X amount is felt. Nobody is feeling 100X amount of pain. So the amount of deaths doesn't factor into the equation. The only thing that should be involved in the question is who is right and who is wrong, not body counts. As to who is right? I'm sure no one but God knows in each of the 974 deaths.
