xxx The basis of that article is that Israel will be under attack b/c of war. Who is going to declare war on Israel? It is hype b/c, though there are bombings w/in Israel, the article is making the assumption that *war* w/in Israel is inevitable - an extension of a battle ground will be found - w/in Israel. The bombings that occur w/in Israel are #1 unpredictable & #2 not part of a declared, legitimate war - they are retaliatory strikes by militant groups. The mention of *WAR* w/in Israel is what makes that article hype.
: +++ And you are so callous to decide that is mere "hype", mutilations and dying is a mere "hype" ?
xxx You are trying to insinuate something that I did not in fact say. I did, in fact, say that suicide bombings are bad, just as are IDF "assassinations" & strikes that take out whole neighborhoods & families are bad. I am saying that the presumption that *war* will be occuring w/in Israel's borders is hype.
xxx But of course, you are not accustomed to such refined arguments. You would rather feel victimized & try to make me sound "corrupt" out of your petty anger. I will not tolerate that, & right now, I'm exposing yourself to yourself.
xxx Again, I ask you: why do you never post anything from a Palestinian perspective?
