    Hello,

    Over 257 children were killed over the past few weeks in Gaza and thousands more were injured.

    There may be talks of ceasefire, but these children still need help!

    Please visit the website from the Title to donate to a charity helping out in Gaza, to help these poor innocent children and civilians!

    Many thanks,

    Anhalo.

    This is a legally registered charity I take it?

    edit - My mistake, you're just offering links to official charities.
    Apologises.

    yeah, at the time I set it up I didn't have much time to register my own charity, as the crisis was more urgent.

    Surely if they stopped firing rockets in to Israel then they wouldn't get killed or have I missed something?

    Such a needless waste of life going on there. Both sides have very valid arguments that will never be resolved by violence. On the one hand you have the down trodden and on the other you have the terrorised. Answers on a postcard to.....

    I tend to agree even after the initial ceasefire they fired rockets first to kick it off again. But I agree too many innocent lives being lost

    I think there is a lack of understanding here as to the REAL cause of the problem.

    If the ZIONIST's were not occupying land, slaughtering innocent people by the thousands...essentially inflicting a holocaust on the Palestinian people then there would be no resistance.

    Why dont people go look at a map of the region...say a 70 year old map, its quite clear there was a place called Palestine...funny how its been wiped off the face of the earth...and no one seems to know or care, however if the President of Iran says such a thing about Isreal the whole world is ready to stand up for the Zionists.

    The Zionists need to understand that the resistance or the will of the Palestinian people can never be broken...and until they learn that there is no way forward other than giving the Palestinians their rightful land and to treat them as human beings, the rockets will keep comming.

    On the one side you have one of the most advanced military forces in the world on the other kids with stones, it dosent take a genius to work out that there is a massive inbalance of power.

    I get VERY angry when people who know little about the conflict and its true cause make silly coments like those made above.

    Isreal should be boycotted, the strong lobby in the UK should be singled out and bought to book over the act of terrorism committed by their commrades against innocents and lets not forget us the brits too.

    It was us (the brits) that let this whole mess occur by issuing the Balfour act it should never have been passed, or they should have at least respected it and adheered to it.

    I just love people who know the REAL truth, and the ZIONISTS are all to blame, because they can use SHOUTY CAPS to argue with, despite the fact that they are representing just one face of a multifaceted problem.

    BTW Swisslogistics, what has the "Balfour act" got to do with the middle east? The Balfour Act was a 1902 Education Act establishing local education authorities in England and Wales. You might mean the Balfour Declaration of 1917 which led to the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. A grasp of the details helps...

    what's a zionist?
    is it the infidel western dogs who insist on receiving rockets into their gardens?

    But didn't Israel build the country up on a slither of land surrounded by people that want to wipe them off the face of the earth?

    Okay, with hindsight not the best place to build your country!

    Shame that the Hamas scum bags are using ambulances to transport their troops and using children as shields while they are firing AK's at Israeli Apaches. And then they parade their dead on the streets saying that Israel is slaughtering people in their thousands? Rubbish...

    By the way, I am not too impressed that you are making posts that support terrorism.

    Lets hope that the Mossad sneak into their (Hamas') homes at night and quietly slits their throats. A slightly more legitimate action than the one you are proposing.

    first off: I don't rightly understand the politics going on Israel vs Gaza.

    I have to say though, I don't understand why everyone is being so anti-Israel. :|

    AFAIK, Gaza started this most recent conflict - them being Hamas, a known terrorist organisation. Israel responded, and are now the bad guys. I know this is a very simplistic overview of the situation, but I just don't get it.

    Bottom line is, both sides should stop. But that's easier said than done :(

    The politics involved are centuries old and for most have been lost and are now merely a case of pure hatred!

    Cheshire? ;)

    I agree it is terrible to see children suffering, but these Hamas clowns have used children as shields in the past and will again. The last time israel gave them a tanking they felt it, yet they continue to attack them.

    "Powerful nations will kick your country's butt if you fire rockets to antagonise them" - basic teachings there !!

    The whole 'Israel vs the rest of the Middle East' needs to be addressd, and the UK/US constantly arming Israel and turning a blind eye to them when they use heavy handed tactics is fundamentally wrong. But, someone in that area needs to propose a peaceful solution that will suit everyone, rather than cause more children hurt and further hatred to grow up with.

    It will cease to be a problem once Iran goes fully nuclear anyways....

    Well aware of that... and the religious roots of the conflict can't be sorted out easily.

    I just don't get why the Israelis are being painted as the bad guys when the other side are a known terrorist organisation... :|

    Piss off Mark ... :eek:

    Israel are deemed to be hitting children, hospitals and schools and the propoganda is making sure everyone sees the tv pics of bodies of children ... without mentioning the years they have been firing missiles into Israel and killing civilians too!

    One thing I have learned from growing up in Nothern Ireland.....

    Until people from opposing 'sides' of any conflict can actually see things from the other 'sides' perspective, there is no way to ever reach an agreement.

    From what I ever see, the two 'sides' to this conflict (gaza) will never recognise the other's POV, and it seems to be turned into a purely 'religious' thing. I notice it from the posts on here even tbh.

    In NI, we have finally recognised that both sides of the religious divide were causing grief to everyone, and that allowed people to actually move towards sorting the problem. There is a long way and a couple of generations before this really sorts itself, but in the meantime we have a few hundred less people being killed each year.

    I still canot believe that relgions are so competitive that they allow for members the other religions to be killed without banishing/excommunicating everyone involved......

    There is one major difference though between what happens there and what happens here!

    You have to understand that religion is not just something that happens on a Friday/Sat/Sun (delete where applicable!) its a way of life. The religion dictates what you wear, what you eat, who you are seen with etc etc, so to purely look at changing that is niaive, you are looking at asking the various to completely change their whole way of thinking and breathing.
