Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From Sky News:

    The Israelis appear unconvinced by Hamas' and IJ's protestations that they are on the verge of stopping rocket attacks against Israel:

    The link is here.
  2. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Round we go again! :roll:

    This is what happens when you have two groups of people with NO sense of humour trying to share the same collection of rocks and sand. Their people have wandered the desert for over 4000 years and don't seem to have run into as much as a fecking 'knock-knock' joke.
  3. :roll: When are Hammas and IJ going to learn that the Israeli Defence Force will never let them get away with any hostile action towards their citizens.

    Giving the land back will not bring a sudden end to the internal strife.

    Personal thoughts......may be bo**ocks!
  4. Those two groups of people have been fighting against each other since the dawn of time. What's new?
  5. No, they've only been fighting each other for 57 years. Before then Jewish communities lived in relative peace throughout the Arab and Islamic world - much more so than they did in Europe, at any rate.
  6. When are the Israelis going to realise that the sooner they stop provoking Palestinian insurgent activity, the sooner their people will stop getting attacked. A cessation of Israeli military strikes on the Palestinians would if nothing else remove some of the legitimacy from the arguments for Hamas and IJ activity. You cannot force your enemy to be peaceful towards you, only remove his reasons to be hateful and give him reason to believe in a peaceful and prosperous future.
  7. HMm that assumes that the Israelis WANT to stop the violence and live in peace with their neghbours. The cynic in me suspects that there may be other priortities.

    There is a noisy and influential minority who seem to beleive that the only good arab is a dead one and the true boundaries of Israel are on the Nile and half way to the Euphrates. What is the point of the truce if you want to break it? Isn't it more convenient to have a never ending struggle with an demonstrably implacable foe who is many many times weaker?
