Palestinian Terrorism began in 1920 and has not let up since then. Various Arab leaders have dedicated themselves to destroying Israel and have killed 10s of thousands of Israelis in the process in the wars and terrorism.
Hamas went on a ruthless and relentless campaign of terrorism in order to STOP the PEACE treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. They bombed buses and cafes time after time after time, stoned little boys, sniped 10 month old babies, shot random civilians in drive by shootings and went on shooting sprees in malls, weddings, etc.
And then, when Israel withdrew from Gaza, they launched thousands of missiles and mortars into the South of Israel - with the strength and quality of the missiles constantly improving.
Twice Israel seriously responded to these attacks - once in Jenin and once in Gaza. Only at that point are their cries of 'slaughter' and 'massacre'.
And how reliable are these claims? Watch this video and decide for yourself: http://youtu.be/t_B1H-1opys.
