  1. I recently had a descussion with a former radicalized muslim PLO terrorist. He has done a complete turn around and now supports Israel. He said as a young muslim boy growing up he was taught to hate everyone who was not a muslim. In fact he was told if he killed non muslims he would go to heaven and be rewarded. Jihad was his goal in life. He said the problem is not about rights of palestians or land, it’s about killing or converting non muslims. Gaza is nothing but a distraction as terrorism spreads around the world. If the different factions within the muslim religion kill each other by the hundreds of thousands there is hardly a peep. However, the anti-semetic attitude world wide, condems the state of Israel for taking action against an enemy shooting thousands of rockets into its territory . I haven’t heard anyone suggest that building tunnels into Israel to commit terrorism is wrong or building rockets and firing them into civilian areas in Israel is wrong. However, it’s really wrong to kill palestinians.The radical muslims have destroyed almost every muslim country. Soon they will destroy your country.

    • Hosni ,
      i really doubt your story about your virtual former PLO terrorist , over all your message here considered as part of the propaganda , the usual one which Israel and USA use every year and every day to cover their crimes against civilians ,
      the terrorism is coming to a country and killing people there just because your ancient grandfather used to live on it one day , how many Palestinian killed since the first invasion of Israeli people on Palestine? how many city,village destroyed? how many land has been stolen ? how many church and mosque were destroyed ? before the recent war to started how many Palestinian were killed by israeli army? what do you expect from 2 million people live in an air open prison built by israel to act? when israel cut the water, electricity , food whenever israel gov want? put your children in 4×4 room and give him food and water whenever it pleases you and see his reaction ?????
      defending their self is not an act of terrorism, but your propaganda and what israel army do is terrorism .
