BTW.. Since mainstream media isn't doing their job, I will... Palestine (Gaza) is under attack, majority of the casualties being young children! You would have to have the heart of a dog, or even less, to kill millions of innocent lives like that. Anyway, before I start raising many red flags up in heree, just thought i'd share to get the word out.. Sickens me to the stomach how not a damn word is being mentioned on the news about this.
I've been hearing it on the news. I've been learning more about it in class, though.

Of course I have pity for the children in Palestine being killed, but it is a fault of Hamas, NOT Israel. Hamas fighters shoot missiles from behind schools, and Israel sends it right back where it came from. If Hamas didn't want children to die, then they wouldn't make an elementary school a front line.

It's a terrible, terrible, thing to do, but it is effective. Now Palestine is able to point blame at Israel for sending missiles at schools. The whole thing really depresses me.

At what point does one realize that provocation and military exchanges with no real goal are not going to achieve anything? I blame all parties involved.
I have to agree with this. There's really no easy solution to it, though. Senseless fighting over "holy land". As long as they keep believing that they're fighting for their religion, they won't stop.
