Do you think the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza will escalate into a war involving other nations in the Middle East?
Not necessarily. Not yet anyways. And if it does, I'm sure Israel will kick some Arab ass like they always do. :)
They do not…they're simply defending their homeland…how would you feel if the Chinese just decided to plop down in your house? Wouldn't you want to defend it? I certainly would
I do…but I really hope not
I believe more countries will jump in. Egypt, Syria, Lebanon.
After Israel who do you think will be the next target?
Man the Jews just can't catch a break, can they?? They've been getting pushed around since ancient Egypt!
Of course it will.
It is only a matter of time.
There will be a global conflict of Muslim vs Western culture.
The winner will be China.
It already involves Iran and Syria. And turkey to a smaller extent. You think the idiots in the Gaza make their own?
What world do you live in?
Nice dream, but history suggests otherwise.
Not my problem. I live all the way over here. I can't tell you what's going to happen. But fighting will only make things worse, not any better. They better just learn to live amongst each other in peace. That's what we've learned to do over here.
All other countries need to stay out of this mess.
Why back out of Israel? What have they done to deserve that? They aren't provoking Hamas. They gave the hazard strip to them and all they want is to get a stronghold to bombard Israel. That is in humane and Hamas (a terrorist group run by Iran) needs to be eliminated like al qieda
And they still want to kill millions of people over that little sliver of non-productive land?
agreed. we should completely take our noses out of it at this pint. it's a zero-sum game
lets back support out of both countries and let them blow each other to hell. we'll talk with and negotiate with the victor. they hate each other that much - no amount of dithering or talking or resource spending is going to change that.
I hope not, but the sad reality is that the people of the area, overwhelmingly non-Jewish, had part of their land carved away for the creation of a Jewish State. Some argue that there was such a place thousands of years ago. Fine, there's your guide for about how long it will take to get over it.
Hamas needs to grow up and realize that the world doesn't revolved around them.
This war is a war of centuries, this area has been at conflict for thousands of years.
It is only a matter of time before all scale war erupts.
Hamas does not want to live in peace. They want to kill all who disagree with them. They are the definition of barbarian.

Either way, it just determines whose side we are on.
Sadly, that's probably true.
Speedbump - I agree
There will never be peace there.
Maybe he should get Iran to host the Olympics and make it all go away.
If Romney had won, we'd probably be involved in the war.
Imagine if Romney had won, this would have already been said to be his fault.
I remember this twenty year ago. It seems like it never ends.
Issues between Palestine and Israel happen all the time, this time is no different
