yeah, a wanderer,it seems you're quite prepared to turn a blind eye to the destruction of thousands of homes. Imagine if the US did that in iraq? imagine the protest.
Or if it happened in the US you would be quick to paint it as terrorism.

Like somebody else said, I'm not trying to apologetic for the palestinian terrorist, but Isreal is a LONG way from handling this in a good way.

I see no way this Middle East conflict will ever end, unless both sides stop their hatred for one another. This cutlure of hate has
been intrenched so deeply in the mindset of almost everybody
there, it'll be impossible to change.
When overtures of a peace settlement are discussed, some idiot
on either the Israeli or Palsestinian side does something to ruin
it, it seems.
Not defending the Palestinians, but Israel has had its share of
using terrorism against too.
Breaking bones with hammers, using Apache helicopters to bomb residential areas, capturing supposed terrorists and executing them on spot, using smoke generators to hide their abuse from the media, etc.
In response to this, the Palestinians send in suicide bombers
to Israel, and here we go again. "An eye for eye" bit.
Then there's the argument, Israel has to defend itself in any way.
I agree, Israel has a right to defend itself, but sometimes their
methods just add to more hatred on the other side.
Will this madness ever end???

I think it's no accident that the extremists of other party get extremely violent as soon as we can see peace on the horizon.
They need each other to justify their agressions and they need the agressions to stay in "job".

The fixed report:

The state department said 625 people were killed in 2003, compared with the 307 it claimed in April which is still lower than 2002 (725).

208 terror-attacks are 10 more than in 2002 (first stated 190)

number wounded leapt from 2,013 in 2002 to 3,646 last year. April's document had reported a fall to 1,593.

And... verry important:
The deaths of troops in Iraq were not counted as they did not qualify under the "terrorism" definition, which includes attacks on civilians and unarmed military personnel.
