Ok, I will pose to you this simple question and with what happened, please give me your opinions...and for God's sake, keep it CIVIL.
Ok, Israel raided a house belonging to the Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigade that was bomb labaratory. Four militants were killed belonging to the Brigade. The raid came as a response to a gunman's attack on an Israeli wedding hall. I guess the first question is, is this attack justified?
My response to it, is yes. Should they have killed the militants? I don't know what happened during the raid, so I dont know if they had any other choice. There are times when you just cant arrest somebody, as in when they defend themselves with arms.
Second situation, Al-Aqsa martyr's Brigade staged an attack in a Jerusalem shopping area today, wounding 20 civilians as a response to the killing of their militants. The gunman was killed by Israeli policeman. Was this attack justified?
My response is no, because they attacked civilians. I suppose I can understand they're being upset over the deaths of their militants, but I don't side with their ideals. No matter how upset or suppressed you feel you are, don't attack civilians.
Now, let's hear your ideas...and for crying out loud, KEEP IT CIVIL!!!

Yes the attack was justified (IMHO) but is ultimately futile. In a climate of injustice all Israel is doing is like attacking a multi-headed hydra. You cut off one head and another 2 grow in its place.....
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Israel is justified in arresting and apprehending terrorist who commit atrocities against innocent civilians, but it is NOT justified in occupying the Palestinian territories and dehumanizing people beacuse of who they are.
Israel's war on terror is necessary, it's war on the Palestinian people, in the form of occupation, checkpoints, collective punishment, human rights abuses and disproportionate military violence is vile and vicious.There is a big difference between arresting and punishing terrorists and victimizing an entire population.
