i wouldnt say they used too much force. they didnt kill everyone there and they allowe people to evacuate and surrender. i doubt very much that a palestinian suicide/terrorist bomber would have been so gracious.

Arafat has been instrumental in many Israeli deaths and many other Nationalities death for many many years. The world owes him no favour. It is not a civilian compound, so unfortunately, SAS23 can't say that IDF are targeting children this time, although one may argue....

No, the IDF is not targetting children and civilians (this time) but all that will happen is that the Palestinians will retaliate with yet another attack; to which the IDF retaliates with another strike or tank invasion; to which the Palestinians retaliate ...
Clearly, neither side is capable (or willing) to stop this cycle of violence. Given the tinderbox state of the region at the best of times, the Iraqi factor means that for the rest of the world (and in particular the US and UK as the primary aggressors with Iraq) to ignore the situation in Israel and the Occupied Territories is like juggling with nitro glycerine.
Both sides are behaving like spoilt brats; therefore they should be treated as such.

President Yasser Arafat is a Nobel Peace Price winner taken hostage in the most brutal way by Israeli Prime Minister and ex-General Sharon, a man wanted in several European countries for mass murder and huge violations of basic human and international rights!

SAS23, its good to see your liberal face on over this issue, however you fooled me once, you wont do so again.As soon as israel makes a mistake you scream blue murder yet when the palestinians kill innocent civilains, including scots, you then same its the fault of both sides.
even when a bomb goes off at an arab school which by the way, no-one who did it,you accused israel of state terrorism, when it transpired that the IDF havd in fact rushed to the school to stop a second bomb and help out, the statement wasnt retracted.
I believe when another suicide attack happens, israel will simply destroy more of arafats buildings and destroy other goverment buildings.If the buildings crumble on arafat and he dies then its his own bloody fault for not standing up to the terrorists and for not keeping his promises, only a few weeks ago arafatcalled for the end of terror and said his party would stop further attacks, this hasnt happened, unless arafat calls for a ceasefire then hes finished, even then people have seen yet again that hes irrelevant in the middle east, he lost all his credibility when he rejected the american offer of peace, once he refused to negiotate and once his own party started to suicide bomb innocent civilains then the world saw the truth.
Its such a shame that more innocent people on both sides have had to die before the world saw what arafat is like, the great travesty of the palestinian porblme rests on yasser arafats head.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit
