OKinyobe Wrote:If someone would explain what they would like Israel to do, then please do it. Remember- Hamas' mandate is to not only eliminate Israel, but all Jewry. They and their fellow Muslims want to rid the planet of Judaism and Christianity (who drives Christians out of Bethlehem? Who threatens Christians? Who hides in churches and uses women and children as human shields?).
Israel has taken great pains to warn civilians- whom Hamas uses and hides behind- and not to injure them.
And where are the other Islamic and Arab states? If they are so concerned, why aren't they helping? Egypt is good at shooting at refugees and walling them out and but hasn't lifted a finger to help.
The problem isn't with Israel- it's with Hamas and Islam.

In a roundabout fashion, you're setting up the same false dilemma that Melkite, ggreg, and LaRoza have been proposing, which is that we either accept Hamas or accept the extermination/ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.  These aren't the only choices at Israel's disposal.  We who oppose the Israeli attack do not have to come up with a full plan for what Israel should do.  We are simply saying that Israel's current course of action is immoral, and stopping it immediately would be better.  To say that they have no choice but to wrecklessly bomb residential areas (there is no military infrastructure in Gaza) with a guarantee of death for countless civilians (many children included) is ludicrous and diabolical.  This mentality does not represent a Christian heart.

The burden of proving that Israel's actions are justified lies upon the shoulders of you who support Israel, OKinyobe, because what they are doing is objectively evil, and you'll have to do some amazing moral theology gymnastics to prove otherwise.
