    Too raw. So unnecessary. Perhaps it should be expected, but, then again, maybe not, to have to face the reality were in now where good people still must fight for civility, decency and acceptance. Isn’t this what we studied during our history classes, thinking perhaps too ideologically, that this just could not ever happen again? This is a harsh reality check. As an American, I am heartbroken. Much praise and respect to the the IDF and the citizens of Israel.

  30. REST IN PEACE MAJOR BENAYA SAREL.
    GOD BLESS THE FAMILY…

  31. Ummm…Susana, do you even know what your country has supported with the War Crimes in Ukraine and Crimea?

    And, just to educate your ignorant ass…

    HAMA intentionally used citizens of Gaza as human shields, lying to them and telling them they would be okay if they stayed put. Israel warned each and every family in Gaza about their attacks of key areas, days before they did it…through pamplets, AND even called their area of residence the day of the attacks.

    But, they stayed put, valuing material things like land over the very lives of their children.

    Humans are weak, we cringe at the words children when it involves death…when the honest truth is everyone will die sooner or later. And, in a time where you’ll have to deal with this the rest of your life, why not sooner?

    Hope that makes you think some, Susana. Atheist *******, are you afraid to die? What is their to gain in life since you believe we’ll all die, and be forgotten? What type of life is that to live, where you know your very existence will be in vain? Huh?

  32. You are in my thoughts and prayers with your family and friends

  33. Cherie Lewis says:
