Thanks,.........
Please monitor this situation closely and report to Topix on your findings.

The Times of Israel is liveblogging events as they unfold through Wednesday, the 16th day of Operation Protective Edge.

The IDF death toll is at 29, with another soldier MIA presumed dead and claimed by Hamas to be in their hands (dead or alive). US Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon are in the region, but a ceasefire does not appear close.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the operation will continue until sustained quiet is achieved for Israel and Hamas’s terrorist capabilities greatly degraded. Some foreign airlines are suspending flights to Israel after a rocket hit a home near the airport. IDF-Hamas fighting in Gaza remains intensive, Hamas is still trying to carry out attacks in Israel through tunnels, and rockets are still being fired.

The BBC's Paul Adams in Gaza reports on the death of a 24-year-old Palestinian woman, Asmaa el-Helou, who despite terrible injuries initially survived an Israeli artillery attack on her home in Shejaiya on Sunday. The strike killed 10 members of her family.

A doctor at Shifa Hospital described Asmaa el-Helou as a "miracle".

She lay under the collapsed concrete of her uncle's house in Shejaiya for 12 hours before being rescued.

Her injuries were terrible. She was badly burned and doctors were not sure if they could save her leg.

But attached to monitors, ventilated and sedated, she clung to life.

"She's strong. She's a miracle," said Dr Ahmad al-Moghrabi.

But the miracle did not last. Asmaa died on Tuesday night, a few hours after we last saw her.

Even if you weren't a christian, you'd be a wanker anyway.
Don't use your religion as an excuse for your poor standards.

So sharing your thoughts is calling me a religitard and making fun of the Bible by calling it the Buybull. So shoving your Evolution lies down our throat and telling us that we are no worthy of respect and uneducated just because we don't have the same views and beliefs as you.
You Atheists tell me how evil I am for being a Christian, but AM I the one swearing here? Am I the one calling other people Stupid and no worthy of certain things just because they don't believe what I believe. This doesn't make a person evil, but it makes them just rude, selfish ignorant people.

While their reasons may differ they all have several things in common that been:-
1. The complete and utter suspension of disbelief.
2. The complete and utter trust in myth over reality.
3. The complete and utter compulsion to lie to protect their version of the so called truth.
They are the first to bully people into their belief system and the first to use the "victim defense" when told to PO.
I have no problem people been religious (despite the fact I find it silly) What I can't stomach are bibull thumping godbots.

<quoted text>That may be true of some atheists, but many of us came to the conclusion that deities are improbable through logical and/or emotional processes outside of science. Not believing in deities makes it much easier to accept such scientific theories as the Big Bang and Evolution, but none of the atheists I know rejected the possibility of deities because of them.
Science is a reality. That makes me an Atheist.

Hamas says ready for humanitarian truce; 3 IDF soldiers killed in Gaza
Some 12 rockets fired at Israel's south and center; UN rights council to form commission of inquiry over alleged Israeli war crimes in Gaza; Israel asks U.S. for $225m for missing Iron Dome parts; Defense minister tells IDF troops: Prepare for next mission in Gaza.

Israel's Operation Protective Edge entered its 16th day on Wednesday, marking the 6th day of the IDF's ground incursion into the Gaza Strip.

Three IDF soldiers were killed on Wednesday, raising the number of Israeli military fatalities since the operation commenced to 32.

At least 350 Palestinians have been killed since Israel began its ground operation, raising the recent escalation's death toll in Gaza to 655, with some 4,220 wounded.

International efforts to stop the fighting between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip have resumed Tuesday, following Monday’s arrival in the region of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the expected arrival of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

On Tuesday, following a rocket attack on Yehud, near Ben-Gurion International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration placed a 24-hour ban on all U.S. flights to and from Israel. Many European airlines also suspended their Israel flights.

God is a something. He does need explaining.
That is a good one if god created the universe who or what created him. Everything that is alive dies and it is over. Trying to understand it is a waste of what we have before us and we need to enjoy that.

I honestly think, you make much more stupid comments that anyone here, Christian or Atheist.
Still having problems with comprehension, and now you are afflicted with willfully judging in my stead as to whether I might find one or more religions to be bad?

What have we ever done(Christians) We spread the word of Jesus but we don't force anyone into believing us. Even if Christians are wrong, it shouldn't be your concern other people choose to convert, that's their problem if they are choosing to believe something silly, not yours.
Then actual history of Christainity and it's spread does not agree with your claims.
It actually has a quite bloody and brutal history.

I doubt that. In fact everything that you have claimed so far that we think of you has been totally off-base. Considering that .... you'd be the last one to think of us, what we think of you, or to even know what we think of you. But keep fanning that flame, who knows you may someday get something right.

Mankind created all gods. And most bestowed upon the gods mankind's worst traits to ensure that other men would fear those newly minted gods. The rich and the powerful have long known that to control most people, fear is the perfect tool. Think of the buybull god, he is claimed to be mean enough to make you eat your children.
