In Israeli ultimate wisdom to free their hostage, they took the decision to bomb a university! http://www.guardian.co.uk/israel/Story/0,,1812450,00.html Both sides are locked in a senseless battle of vendetta and retaliation. The one thing both sides need in this conflict is education and respect it would seem. Surely a university is the one thing that would help foster understanding and empathy for the other side. Why destroy it? As terrible as this hostage taking is, and no matter how badly it reflects on Hamas, surely the bombing of a university is not going to help bring him back? Perhaps someone here with a better appreciation of this terrible and pointless conflict could tell me how bombing a university will help bring an end to this situation, or help the hostage? Will such destruction, and other countless massacres of innocents help either side reach peace, or will it continue to foster hatred and vengeance on both sides for generations to come? Was there such antagonism and hatred in the area before Israel came about? Surely it is about time we realise that NEITHER side has the INTELLECT, GOOD WILL or ABILITY to have the right to their own state, and this right should be taken away from them for the sake of the greater good across the world? Perhaps we should just force the closure of Israel, as they are the more 'advanced society' (despite living with Neanderthal like mentalities), with better education, so should know better than to continue is this senseless way. The Palestinians have never really been given a fair chance in the modern world it would seem, having always been down trodden, and taken advantage of by other stronger forces from Iran and Syria. Isn't it about time we said enough is enough? Lets close down Israel. The people can stay, but they are not allowed to practice their religion (as religion seems to be the deep routed cause here). Lets give more support to Palestine and ensure surrounding Arab nations like Syria and Iran stop using these people as their tool for war against Israel.
