You asked a very good question. Why the Arab countries did not start to build a new city for the Palestinians?

Let's see. I have a few suggestions.

#1. Work.. Building a new city requires industry. That's hard work. It's a lot easier to receive money now. Just launch a few rockets into Israel and you have international aid.

#2Oil price. Every time there is a "war", oil price goes up. If there is peace, oil price would remain suppressed.

#3 Jews.. Muslims are supposed to kill all Jews. Building a new city could divert energy away from killing Jews.

Arab Muslims did worst and more cruel things to their own people compare to what Israelis have done; Arab Muslims killed more of their own people compare to the number killed by Israelis. When Arab Muslim do not even respect their own people, respect their own women, respect and give their own people freedom and human right, how do the Arab Muslims expect other people to respect them? Many people do not support Israel, but neither many people like the Arab Muslim.

perhaps it is time to engage in an economic boycott of industries that support such aggression

There is a war going on. I am very sad because it seems that the Malaysian Media and govt as well as the public is jumping in and condemning one side! Our media is not interested in giving fair reporting. They seemed to be concern about who is right! This is not the way to help anyone. We are just being biased. There maybe a lot of truth but this does not mean that Hamas or the Palestinians are blameless. Just because I am a Muslim or Christian or Chinese or Malay or European does not automatically mean that I support "my" side and condemn the other! This I fear is the reason why people who do wrong continue to do wrong because there are unthinking people who are ready to support their kind right or wrong. How can we ever hope to have peace when we are forever saying we are right? How can we ever hope to solve problems when the other is always wrong? Our media and our people are contributing to the problem!!

Perhaps if Muslims stop warring with each other, the future will be better for Islam and the Middle East. In Palestine Hamas vs Fatah or maybe Shia vs Sunni. Similarly in Iraq.

If Muslims are warring with each other, why should the world help.

In Malaysia there is hypocrisy: We don't recognise Shia but we support Iran. Just as we say we are Islamic and yet there's Genting Highlands, horse racing and the attendant gaming.

If there is less hypocrisy amongst those who lead Islamic nations, then maybe Muslms will be better off for the future.

Why is the Saudi Kingdom toilet paper for Bush's arse?

Exactly,looking for International Aid.Our own people here really need aid.Help your own people first before chanelling money to other countries just because of religion.Both Israel and Hamas should be responsible for their own act.Both are taking wrong step.Hamas should care for their own people instead of creating scenes for International sympathy.

The only way to bring real, lasting justice, peace and prosperity to Palestinians and to all the peoples of the region is through common mass struggle against oppression and the pro-capitalist, corrupt regimes. The overthrow of capitalism and landlordism and the creation of a genuine socialist society – putting people before profit and ending poverty – would see real collaboration between all working people of the region, pooling together all the rich resources for the benefit of the many and bringing about real self-determination for the oppressed.

Why is it the muslims don't condemn and blame all these terrorist organisations, Why is it people support blindly, is it because you read the same Holy book so that means you are self righteous, so there are no murderers, crooks, rapists because they are Ummah, might as well free all those muslim convicts in our malaysian jails because they are ummah. Why do muslims complain that they are perseived as terrorists and murderers, who are the majority of suicide bombers, who blew up trains and busses in britain, the train bombings in spain,It is all an excuse, by using the excuse of israel, why go and blow up innocent people who are apolitical. you want to stop the bombers, stop supporting terrorists, somple, the moment the funding and donations freeze or finish off there will be no more money to make bombs, these people are anarchists , who are abusing Islam, and USING ISLAM as a unifying excuse. we recently had a Malaysian women killed in the Mumbai muslim terrorist attacks, we only got lip service, from the muslims in Malaysia, were there protests by UMNO AND PAS AND ALL THOSE UMMAHS at the Pakistan embassy, why the hypocracy? please understand this you push and push someday something has to give, If all the non muslim nations in the world turn around and say please keep your religion and don't bother us anymore, don't do trade with us and keep your oil, we will buy our oil from Russia, all muslims are persona non grata in all western nations. I am just waiting for the day when we see a mushroom cloud on the horizon and maybe a biological weapon's attack, do you want to see nuclear devises raining down on the middle east, Mecca, Pakistan, don't forget the biggest poppy growers in the world are muslims in AFGANISTAN, If you want chaos your wish may just come true. I think the time has come for muslims, to open their eyes and smell the coffee, they get very offended on perceived insults on their Religion but turn a blind eye to murder mayhem and chaos in fact even condoning it, what about the insult to all the intelligance of the rest of human kind on all the bombings. I think the wish of the muslims may just come true, if they cross the line, sept 11 was one where they went too far, now reap what you have sown, cry for the dead muslims, innocents dying everyday for the deeds of fanatics.

While I symphatize with the innocent people killed, I put the blame squarely on Hamas who stirred the hornet's nest to gain international symphaty without regard to its own people.

Tell me, what do you do when someone come to burn your house or rape your women?

Comments here are so different from what we hear and read from approved institution! This Muslim and Arab bashing comes from deep inside the heart, full of zeal and sounding so sincere.

Hamas was pretty stupid to launch attacks it know it cannot finish. They just asked for it and they are getting what they deserve. Israel's response was disproportionate in its force.. No it is NOT.

Can someone answer me why (I mean really, not rhetorically) the gulf Arabs haven’t supported the infrastructure in Gaza?
For the cost of a single multi-billion dollar tower in Abu Dhabi and/or an A380 private superjumbo with gold fixtures a lot of good could be done, no?
The Jews have always been generous with their financial support of Israel.
