They are going to remove the terror tunnels, a ceasefire will commence, and then the Palestinians in Gaza will happily go home (to the rubble that they have been left with), forgive and forget the murder of their mother, father, brother and sister?
In what sane world do the Israeli government think they are living in?
They think that bombing civilian centers shows that they are willing to strike at Hamas wherever and whenever (even if Hamas isn't located there). By doing this, they hope to intimidate the Palestinian people into withdrawing their support from Hamas.
But, ironically, they only bolster Hamas's influence with every Palestinian civilian that dies. It's a brutal, disgusting, and ultimately ineffective tactic.
If you want to protect your people, don't target the opposition's people. The same goes for Hamas haphazardly launching rockets at Israeli cities.
And eye for an eye approach to the conflict doesn't solve anything.
Yeah, even Ronald Regan once said that killing innocent people in the process of taking out terrorists is also terrorism. Ronald Regan.
Israel is bombing civilians deliberately, schools, hospitals, clinics, day care, Mosques and any other place where people gather the objective being the total elimination of 2.2 million Gazians.<quoted text>
Israel didn't bomb civilian areas intentionally, but don't let facts get in the way.
Actually is seems as though the Palestinians in Gaza while as a majority they support violence against Israeli civilians may be waking up to realize they made a bad decision.
This is not about an eye for an eye but about the fact that Hamas need to be finished once and for all. If they are not the next war will come soon and more civilians will die.
Terrorists must be exterminated not appeased. Appeasement is what has led the world to this point with Jihadis throughout the world massacring people.
The whole Knesset has to be put on Trail in the Hague as War Criminals and convicted and then given Life in Prison..
