    There is no peace in sight between Israelis and Palestinians as violence in the region escalates. Gaza's Hamas leader on Thursday vowed that Palestinians will continue their uprising until they achieve their objectives. The situation in the Middle East is further complicated by the hostility between ultra-religious Jewish settlers and the secular Israeli state. Zlatica Hoke has more.

    If Hamas tries this, Gaza will be pushed into the sea.

    Oh yeah? And who's going to give them food, water, electricity, cement, medical care and on and on.

    And if it weren't for Israel, Hamas will be a gonner with ISIS roaming around.

    Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005. There are no Israelis in Gaza.

    In this I hope Hamas succeeds, Israel/Israelis settlements in the Palestinian territories is illegal. Israel/Israelis has bombed Palestinian schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. Israelis burned a Palestinian child and his family alive in the Palestinian territories.

    Surely can´t israelites and Palestinians live side by side in the name of Abraham? If two state formular is not workable, can´t you unite and live together? Please fanatical beliefs will only spoil lives

    Hilarious. Like Israel is shaking in it's boots with the pathetic Hamas threats. Get knotted Hamas, you have as much chance of taking over Israel as Paris Hilton is of becoming our next President.

    Here's my reply to "Hamas Leader Promises Uprising to End Israeli Occupation:" Hahahahaha. Hahahahahaha. Hahahahaha.

    But the muslims are correct about one thing: they will continue spilling their own blood. There may come a time when Jews no longer control the land west of the Jordan River, and if they're satisfied waiting several hundred years for that to happen then so am I. It won't be happening anytime sooner.
