Also at The Weekly Standard Blog is this post Imagine the Jews Were the Real Terrorists!

Crittenden continues the beat with Bleeding, Leading in which he comments on Greenwald the sock puppet. Ok, maybe that is not fair, my also calling him a sock puppet. But if you ask me it is better than saying that he comes across as a semi-hysterical shill for terrorists. Now that is probably too extreme, so maybe we should return to the sock puppet. Either way we'll give Greenwald some time in the sun.

Jefferey Goldberg wrote The World's Pornographic Interest in Jewish Moral Failure. Look at this excerpt:

"Once, in Khan Younis, I actually saw gunmen unwrap a shrouded body, carry it a hundred yards and position it atop a pile of rubble -- and then wait a half-hour until photographers showed. It was one of the more horrible things I've seen in my life. And it's typical of Hamas. If reporters would probe deeper, they'd learn the awful truth of Hamas. But Palestinian moral failings are not of great interest to many people. "

Yourish offers Hamas using children as human shield and Barbarism in the Congo, ignored.

The report by CNN that is at the top on your list is reporting what Israel claims only to a minor degree (I agree with the IDF position). The article itself doesn't give the reader any reason whatsoever to believe that Israel was justified. It makes them look like baby killers.

First, The united nations is only useless because great powers such as the US, Britain, France, etc. don't usually give it leverage for it to function properly.

Second, Please anonymous read your history on the subject although both sides are to blame. But you should also keep in mind that Israel let Zionist Jewish settlers ravish the lands of Palestine and kick out Palestinians living there. The Arabs do not have a history of lying that is an ignorance thing to say, everyone lies regardless of their nationality or ethnicity to pinpoint one group is to downgrade your argument automatically.

The Arabs do send aid, Egypt does this but it is also ridiculed by the Israel government saying that they support the terrorist group in the area.

I can suggest you to read a novel by Robert Fisk called "the Great War for Civilisation" although I do not agree with certain things on some subject he does give a clear accounts on this subject. But it is also good to read some history about the two sides.

Israel is entitled to defended itself, by all means. Hamas is a disgraced group that does use civilians as human sides and proudly publicizes it. But Israel being the more technologically, politically and military advanced state should take better tactical methods to overthrow the regime, instead of using force all the way.
