Moshe Feiglin: Unethical to Endanger IDF Soldiers in order to Protect Gazans

The residents of Gaza were not occupied by the Hamas; they voted for the terror organization in democratic elections, by a huge majority, by virtue of its uncompromising struggle against Israel.

For this reason, the separation between the armed Hamas terrorists and those ‘not involved’ or ‘innocents’ is false. The Gazans are now paying for the choices they have made.

It is enough for the IDF to make one announcement for residents to evacuate a given area, giving them reasonable time to get away.

Any other measure taken to protect the population against the results of its choices – at the expense of the IDF soldiers – is unethical.

    Good truth spoken!!!

  2. The evil and satanic Hamas Charter says : Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna) http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/hamas.asp

  3. Bravo!! I couldn’t agree more. I just had a conversation with someone just 10 minutes ago and expressed the same sentiment.

  4. Rick Murray says:

    Moshe is the man of truth

  5. Ronald Raff says:

    There is guilt by association so how can you feel sorry for those Palestinian casualties they are who they voted for

  6. Norma Biblow says:

    I agree 100 % now what?

  7. It is similar to the Germans voting in the Nazis and thus Hitler and his henchmen. Did we spare the citizens when we bombed Germany? Of course not- and of course, the citizens all said, when shown the death camps forcibly, that they had no knowledge of them or the Holocaust. They were all full of it- remember Kristalnacht, the Nuremburg agains the Jews, beating Jews up,with glee. Same for the Gazans-they voted in these s, well, too fuc- ing bad what happens.

  8. Yes it is the sad truth.

  10. I agree ! it would make no sense to risk IDF Soldiers !

  11. They chose Hamas and so they’re suffering from their wrong choice.

  12. I agree 100 percent and to hell with world opinion – we are condemned anyway so why risk our lives because we are holier than the pope?!!!!!

  13. Teri Carroll says:

    the idf is the only military that warns the civilians ahead of time…. when and where they are going to bomb….those people had ample time to leave but refused to….give them 24 hours and theyre history…..

  14. Karen Bryant says:

    No disagreement. When I pray for Israel and the innocent Gazans dragged into this by hamas I know that God will sort out “those innocents.” He will protect justly.

  15. Uzi Kattan says:

    Unethical and insane.

Who is Horowitz? He’s Netanyahu’s eyes and ears. He’s very close to him, literally his personal representative everywhere…

in a new report, Amnesty International charges “Gaza armed groups’ with war crimes in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

If there are no surprises, Netanyahu is expected to form a coalition, after some tough negotiations, with the Likud, Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beytenu, UTJ and Shas.

One wonders how many Prime Ministers Herzog envisions sitting in that one chair at the same time.

Netanyahu is expected to have 61 recommendations in his favor.

There’s much disappointment within Yesh Atid as they head into the oppositions.

Final voter counts are in, if Yachad doesn’t petition the courts over voter fraud…
