Israel does not claim its army is perfect. It knows that when fighting a war in which terrorists station themselves in civilian neighborhoods, some civilians will be harmed. And the Israelis regret that. They simply want to be judged by the same standard the international community has used in judging other conflicts in which the aggressors end up suffering more casualties than their intended victims.

  1. Well if Hamas would stop launching rockets into Israel then they would not have this problem now would they. Israel should keep on fighting these scum until there are none left to fight….

  3. No it is not. When an action is continued beyond the first response, it is right and proper to use the force necessary to stop it. Hamas could have prevented any escalation what-so-ever by stopping their rocket attacks. No one is asking if the rocket attacks are disproportionate to the imagined fantasy of Israeli subjugation.

  4. Yes it is! and because it is this will contiue to flare up. What Israel should have done is hit the bastards with everything including the kitchen sink, instead they posture and talk 🙁

  5. Yes, Israel’s response is disproportionate. Israel should ignore the [world’s] restrictions and make gAza a nice clean place for decent people to live once again. Clean out the filth! Kahane (OBM) was right; THEY MUST GO! There is no such thing as ‘Palestinians’ and there is no such thing as sharing as far as Islamics are concerned. They want world domination – every human must conform and convert to islam. Well, I can say that my family will not conform and we will remaim true to Hashem forever.
