Is Mr Netanyahu right ?

Looks as if tricky Netanyahu successfully lured Hamas into a confrontation HE wanted, not least to get re-elected. He has waited until AFTER the US presidential election (he is a USA-Jew) as he is aware of the rather anti-Jewish notions of the Mormons. And now takes a risky path. But of course can see that Syria is in a Civil War and that Egypt is in a complicated phase still, so that no Arab country will intervene. The Saudi backers of Hamas cannot do much as they while having lots of money do not have any real power

I don't know, but have the feeling he now wants to get rid of Hamas once and for all, which means that there will be a full-scale invasion of the Gaza Territory by the Israeli army within hours or days

If that does happen then to remove Hamas is going to require a lot of lost lives...

Hamas does not wear military uniforms.

Looks that way.
I do not know how they could assasinate a Hamas leader by an air attack while he was in his car? I assume the car was fitted with some sort of Israeli device that made it an easy target??

Yes, as you say the immediate neighbours Egypt & Syria have their hands full. Jordan I assume will stay out of it? From a central government viewpoint Lebanon also has its issues; surprised that Hamas in Lebanon are so quiet?
The other Arab countries are mostly occupied in coping with the results of the Arab Spring so I do not see any co-ordinated actions there?

As was mentioned; problem for Israelis is identifying "who is Hamas in Gaza"

Well, you have to admit that HAMAS make it easy for him by continuing to lob rockets over the fence. If you keep prodding the tiger at some time or another it's going to get irritable and snap back. And it's not like the HAMAS rockets are aimed at military installations either...

We all know the palestinian started this war so I don't understand where the "HE WANTED" is coming from. Israel only wants to live in peace. By the way, I don't understand why people post these kind of threads, it's only stiring up the hatred.

We don't all know that. At least I don't. And "he started it", no "he started it" arguments are rather futile. Let the real men and women stand up and end it.

It's a fact that the first rocket was sent by the palestians, not by the israelis.

Oh I love "facts". I suppose if you are silly enough to think that a rocket started this....

But in any case who started it is not relevant. Let's find someone with the courage to end it.

Yes, absolutely, "the facts". I know and I hope that Israel will end that. It's about time these terrorists bite the dust.

I think this is shared among the majority of not only the Palestinians, but of the World's population.

However, this is not the point.

It's rather how Netanyahu thinks he could ever win such a war, particularly if somehow Barak is involved, after that Israel lost the previous, result of which was a much stronger Hezbollah.

You could say that about many many threads; however, one should easily be able to distinguish between those people and who simply would like to share his/her point of view and maybe reconstruct that one of others ...

Re: Is Mr Netanyahu right ?

It will take courage to end this conflict. More courage than it takes to keep it going. It will take courage because people on both sides are going to have to admit that they have made some BIG mistakes, and that they have committed some terrible crimes. It will take courage, because some powerful people are going to have look to bad and perhaps even be unpopular for a while. It will take courage because both sides are going to have to make concessions. It will take courage because people on both sides are going to have to let go of some long held beliefs and childish prejudices.

I'm not talking about the israeli-palestinian conflict which started because some terrorists decided Israel was their land even if they don't have anything to do with it. The first ones on this land were the jewish people. This specific war was started by the Hamas because for Israel, human lives have a value and doesn't want his soldiers to die, contrary to the palestians who use civilians as shields.

As long as people keep thinking this way, the conflict will never end. Which probably means, unfortunately, that the conflict will never end.

Don't worry it will end because this time, rockets are touching jerusalem and tel aviv. Palestine is going to be razed to the ground. No palestians, no conflict.

So, you think that Netanyhu called some buddies at Hamas, asked them to send over some hundreds of rockets to give him an excuse to attack them?
