The world only protests when Israel Strikes
"Taliban claim suicide blast that killed 14 Afghan children" 29 DEC
"Bomb in Baghdad kills 22, wounds 54" 27 DEC
"Suicide bomb kills at least 55 in Iraqi restaurant" 11 DEC

Check these links on other deadly suicide bombings

These do not include any of the bombings that happened in Israel over the years.

My point is the world does not give a about terrorists and governments who directly target civilians, which is in violation of international law. The UN, my favorite organization, is very quick to condemn Israel at every moment while being silent over the attacks I just listed. When Israel had enough, takes the fight to the enemy and kills civilians who are near by, the world goes berzerk.

I am sick of Israel getting all the criticism while the terrorists get a free ride.

Have you ever stopped to consider that out side the USA the world may not see Israel as being the model of total innocence?

Lets face it these Israel/Palestinian things have become little more than those tit for tat car games siblings play where they sit there nudging each other and claiming the other one started it.

In terms of the lack of outcry over suicide bombings vs a state killing civilians I think that one has been explained to death on these forums already.

Interesting argument over the ceasefire as there is a strong counter argument that says Israel never fully lifted the blockade which was an integral part of the ceasefire, if this is true then it was Israel that broke the terms.

However I have done nothing to verify any of this primarily because I just dont care about the region.

There's probably a number of very good reasons for this.

(1) The majority of the world really don't really believe that "Israel" is a legitimate entity, but merely another occupier of someone elses land. All this religious crap about "God's chosen people and having been promised a this land by god just doesn't cut it anymore. Zionist extremism is the last straw for most people including myself.

(2) People expect better of the Jews after them having suffered so much at the hands of the Nazi's, whereas I feel most people look upon the muslim extremists as not much better than some sort of neanderthals. Or else, like christians, just another group who wish to subjugate their own people and others with religious mumbo jumbo.

(3)People don't ***** about the muslims because they know it is a waste of time and breath that would be better used for cooling our soup, whereas they do have a hope that the people of Israel will come to their senses one day and realise that there will be no peace so long as they treat the Palestinians and their land as a resource.

There is a difference between that of a country such as Israel who is supposed to know better and a bunch of extremists who cannot be reasoned with at all.

The reason the world doesn't say much about terrorist attacks is because who are they going to complain to? The terrorists?

I will also echo Spike's sentiments that their is a very different perception of Israel outside the USA. The fact is the Israelis kill far more Palestinian civilians than groups like Hamas kill Isreali civilians -alot more.

Look at the scoreboard since the latest conflict this was as of last night on CNN.

KIA Palestineans 300+ (most of which are civilians)
KIA Isreal 3 (2 civilians and 1 soldier)

If the US Media actually bothered to cover BOTH sides of the conflict their would be a lot less sympathy for Israel. I remember a few years ago the IAF dropped a bomb on the apartment building of a known terrorist killing him. Unfortunately, their were 19 other people living in the same building as the terrorist who were killed as well. Killing 19 civilians to kill a single terrorist, that's a bit heavy-handed don't you all think? Is it any wonder why people dont like Isreal?

Don't fire rockets, then hide behind civilians and expect nothing to happen.

Well we know what happens, its the Civilians that get killed, not the terrorists. Its the same reasoning that Tim McVeigh used when he bombed the Murrah Building in Okhlahoma City: Civilians are to be sacrificed for the cause.

That line of thinking was as wrong then as it is now, and we all know what happened to McVeigh.

That's contradictory- If they cannot be reasoned with why try a diplomatic way? Every country would feel obliged to defend itself because that is what nearly every oath is about- you swear to protect your country.
