    But remember they only respond to attacks, kind of like a eye for a eye so if there isnt any attacks from gaza there wont be airstrikes but we all know some moron will shoot of a rocket into israel and then here we go again.

    So the religion in the area requires defiance and israels requires a response. Perpetual motion.

    It only applies in Gaza, so when if someone is killed in the West Bank it will start again.

    The Israel response is always excessive, if a rocket is fired by the Palestinians it is not a certainty to harm, although I stress this still should not happen. But the Israel response is to make sure they kill, if its someone innocent, too bad. Then the Palestinians respond again.

    Sure then he turns up with a couple of tanks and flattens the house, and your other neighbors just in case they happen to know you or by accident.

    Each response is excessive.

    Its why Jesus came along otherwise everyone would be eyeless and toothless plus it saves on needless livestock slaughter.:D

    Religions and the mindless people who follow them, got to love em.

    Perhaps if the jews and muslims followed his ways rather then their ancient books we wouldnt to have hear of this anymore and they would discover peace. Hate is so much easier then love.

    I think Hamas will keep to the terms, I think the Israelis will accuse them of "training" or some such rubbish though...

    It only applies to the Gaza Strip though.

    Any peace at this time, will be short lived. It's not time yet for the peace deal to come. There is a deal coming, but the person who will broker it,isn't part of it yet. That peace deal, will last for 3.5 years before it is broken by the one to brokered it.

    Most of the time it is. However Israel's not guiltless. See the next response.

    I believe what Remmy is alluding to is that Israel is easily provoked into a reaction, and then it goes ballistic.

    Cease-fires aren't always that cut-and-dried. All it takes it one loose cannon to blow it on either side, and all of a sudden it's over. Nobody ever stops to think, "Gee, it might've been somebody deliberately trying to provoke us into a reaction." They just go with their knee-jerk reaction: hit 'em back hard.

    I doubt very much that the Egyptians will break it.

    They piss off all our governments and lose the tourism revenue.

    For Skunk

    Daniel 9:27 - 27: And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

    The week, represents 7 year period.

    When that peace comes, watch for the rebuilding of the temple in Israel. The priest line is already learning how to offer sacrifices, and they are raising red heifers for that purpose. It's not far away.

    It was a small joke, until The Rapture stuck its foot in the door. Now we know why Finalday chose his username...

    Wait, wait...Are you suggesting that the solution to violence in the Middle East is to convert everyone to Christianity?

    No, it isn't. You need to have a memory that goes back more than a few weeks to see what's really going on.

    It's a subject that's very close to me and one that I'm very passionate about, so I think I'll politely leave it at that. As arguments are likely to happen, as is so often the case with this subject.


    EDIT: I've just had a thought; maybe you missed the sarcasm in my previous post? I was actually disagreeing.

    I'm aware of that.

    And although I'm not as short-memoried as you may believe, if you want to leave it at that, I'm cool with it.
