Exactly, I pay my income tax. No one holds a gun to my head.

Perhaps not physically, yet, but if you didn't pay, you know they'd be at your door with their shiny new MP-5 or M-16 machine guns in short order. ;)

That is so pathetic. They are basing *their* claim on *their* holy book. Funny how it supports *their* view.
I guess all of us US citizens who aren't American Indians should start packing. After all, they can make the same claim.

You are aware, are you not, that "*their* holy book" is also one of Islam's holy books?

Please tell us where to find the Native Americans' "holy book".

If they don't want to "experience slowly but steadily declining health due to insufficient nourishment" they can lock Hamas up or hang them or do something else to get them under control. But instead they'd rather starve and be blown up than be dragged kicking and screaming into the 20th century.

Exactly. And the same principle applies to the Afghans. Bring our troops home and let the Afghans solve their own problems. Ditto Iraq.

I hope you'll permit a modest correction. Your statement would make more sense if it read "... dragged kicking and screaming out of the tenth century."
The Muslims are in much the same place as Christianity during the dark ages. I say give 'em anothe 500 years or so and they'll experience their own "enlightenment" then "renaissance."

I don't agree with anyone on either side, but several things bode well for the Israelis:
1) Israel warned them off and they deliberately ran the blockade.
2) Israel wanted to make sure that no weapons were delivered to Hamas and the deaths prove that the ships were carrying at least some weapons.
3) Israel documented all of this via the media.
Who are these idiots on the ships who attack armed specialists with guns, knives, and clubs, anyway? Darwin, here are some more for your collection!
That said, I wish we could distance ourselves from Israeli politics and let the two countries just duke it out once and for all. Y'know, like this:

What really bothers me are the tire burnings in Pakistan and other world disruptions over this. Oh, for the power to dissolve all religions and the hold they have over idiots of the world...

And you believe that because the Israelis said so, right?
