Israel vs Palestine - a fair fight ?

So lets see how the combatants line up for a fair fight...

In the Blue and White corner we have Israel, armed with:

Army, 134,000, Navy, 9,000, Air Force 32,000 troops, Reserves, 430,000. 3,800 tanks, 1,500 large artillery pieces, 4 submarines, 3 missile corvettes and a fleet of about 12 fast missile patrol boats. 2,000 combat aircraft and alleagely 100 nuclear warheads.

in the red, black, white and green corner we have Palestine armed with 100 men with AK47's, a 60mm mortar, 3RPGs and a rocket, plus 'ahmed' the guard dog, oh and the cook Rosella.

FFS - how can anyone presume this is some how a balanced conflict ?

Update:

Opps sorry I forgot about Palestines 200 school children armed with stones and 4 catapults.

    If Palestine had the atomic bomb then it may just make the greedy Israelis stop and think. Unfortunately now is just a case of David and Goliath

    I've had enough of all of this racism against Jews and Muslims. First of all, before any hate starts coming, i have studied religion for years and have lived in three completely different countries. A proper, decent muslim will agree that all these stupid extremists aren't real Muslims, and the same goes for the Jews. They are essentially the same religion with the same God, but Jews simply dont believe in Prophet Mohammed, and that's all. Also please dont always listen and believe everything that's on the news. Most people do see the similarities between Jews and Muslims, because all they see on TV everyday is them.fighting. I wish all of it would just stop. They aren't gaining anything.

    No, it isn't a fair fight. Israel has all of this manpower and arsenal at its disposal yet it cannot even use a tiny fraction of that power (see the past few days as an example) without being roundly condemned by all quarters regardless of the legitimacy of such an action.

    And for the record, you forgot to mention the positioning of those schoolchildren in front of the men with the AK-47s while Israel, more wisely, positions its schoolchildren in bomb shelters (that would be the ones that are being deliberrately targeted by Hamas' Kassam missles).

    Yeah, a technologically advanced defense force / air force against farmers with pitch forks. It's hardly a fair fight.

    Don't forget about the newly deployed warships by the US off the coast of Lebanon.

    Nice Question- thank you for posting it:

    The majority pro Zionist media fills peoples minds with rubbish, so they don't know what are the real issues.

    Posting questions like this are education and defiance of oppression

  • at last someone came up with that question!! its absolutely unfair, and the whole world is watching hundreds of Palestinians getting killed everyday without moving a finger, all that because America supports the Fu Cking Jews... when the Palestinians create a (home made) missile and create simple damage with no deaths, Israel says ' you are starting the fight' !!!! what do they expect? they expect them to see their families being killed cold blooded and shut up??? i am soooo angry at the America and the Jews

    that's the problem, if the Palestinians had a proper army maybe the Israelis would stop staling land, that's why the Palestinians voted for hamas, for protection as they are the closest thing to an army that they could get
