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 scumbags, well, too fuc- ing bad what happens.

  8. Yes it is the sad truth.

    “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” (Psalm 91:11)
    “And let the angel of the Lord chase him … And let the angel of the Lord pursue them … Let the destruction come upon him unexpectedly.” (Psalm 35:5-8)
    “Behold, I sent an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.” (Exodus 23:20)
    “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14)
    “For Satan himself transforms himself into an ANGEL OF LIGHT. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:14) <3

  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.
