I'm tired of these bastards showing the willingness to sacrifice their brain-washed women and children in the name of their great Allah by detonating themselves in public areas. How in the hell do they expect to win over the world's sympathy with these ruthless tactics?

Hi, Draegerman,

Like you, I was confused over what these people were trying to accomplish. Killing non-combatants will hardly bring sympathy for the terrorists or their cause. Then, it finally dawned on me what was going on. The terrorists aren't trying to gain sympathy or bring any kind of "good attention" to their cause.

It's hate. They are so hateful of their victims, that it's worth the "small" loss of their lives to achieve the "big" gain of killing those they hate. They have gotten to the point that causing harm to others, even while causing loss to themselves, is preferable to doing nothing.

Notice also that surrounding nations could absorb the Palestinians, but they don't. The Palestinians are second class citizens in the nations of their supposed friends, as far as getting jobs or owning property. These countries and their governments have something to gain by keeping this wound festering.
