    It appears that Israeli military ethics demand collective punishment. Whether it be economic sanctions on 1.5 million people for electing the "wrong" party or subjecting them to a collective "diet" that would make them "thinner" but not dead, to vicious assaults that result in large scale damage to infrastructure and mounting civilian deaths.

    My question is: will this work?

    If yes, why? If not why not?

    well if the Israelis will kill them all, it will work...noone will be left alive, so they can further built their houses on the graves of the people they killed.

    That isn't the Israeli ethic. It's the human ethic.

    Go to a bar and see how long you can poke people in the chest before you get punched in the nose.

    Does that also hold for an occupation of 60 years and a starvation of 2 years?

    Why were they being occupied? Certianly not for nothing. There was no peace agreement, they were still a looming threat. East Germany was occupied for what, 50 years?

    Why were they a threat? And is starvation a justified response to such threats?

    The militant opposition to Israel's existence came first and you know it.

    Of course it did. Why the hell would anyone accept a Jewish state on their land?

    Because it was the right thing to do. The Arabs have no shortage of land, you know that too. The former Ottoman Empire was huge, besides the fact that state borders have historically shifted all over the place. The only reason the phoney attachment to land is emphasized is due to anti-semitism.

    BS. Someone else's religion based fantasy does not make it incumbent on other people to support it. If the Muslims decided to make the world Dar al Islam, should everyone else just accept it?
    The Jews are keeping out non-Jewish natives and importing foreign Jews to have a Jewish state. Thats racism.

    Oppression of Jews across the world justified it, no appeal to religion is necessary.

    If the Jews were oppressed worldwide, they should ask themselves why.

    You cannot become unpopular all over the world without a reason.

    When you get kicked out of every bar, its time to stop blaming the bartender.

    Your anti-semitism is quite clear.

    Of course. Because Israel is filled with peace loving Jews who get along with everyone.

    Umm.. it's kind of ironic you would say that. And I'm not saying that to offend you btw.

    Because I get kicked out of everywhere and cry anti-semitism?

    It gets along with anyone who doesn't condone terrorism and accepts their right to exist.

    No. But never mind, I would feel awkward explaining it.

    Its a terrorist state, built by terrorists. It should commit suicide if it truly adheres to those values
