  4. Jeff Sanders says:

    I am sure they died honorably while fighting the Hamas- Nazis.

  5. May Davies says:

    That’s because Israel DEFENDS its people (as in “Israeli DEFENSE Forces”), and Hamas sends its people to die and places them in harm’s way. The blood of Arab lives lost are on Hamas’ hands, not Israel’s. Does Hamas have a hospital set up for Israeli wounded like Israel has for wounded Gazans? No Hamas won’t even allow one wounded transpot in their ambulances. They are so bent on death that they lead their civilians to die and then leave them to suffer and die when they are wounded. And THEN they complain about lost lives?

  6. May Davies says:

    Islam invests to kill at all cost, and Israel invests to protect lives at all costs.

    I wish I knew the tactical details of these deaths. I suspect, the IDF is taking chances, beyond what they are morally obligated to do, to avoid the deaths of innocent children.

  30. Andrew Barer says:

    These losses are terrible but you have to finish the fight and take Hamas and the tunnels out or these people died for nothing. Iran needs to be gone and Israel will have peace until then they are always in danger.

    IT’S JUST MY TWO CENTS WORTH
    In the news over the past few days PM Benjamin Netanyahu was quoted as saying hamas had a double charge of war crimes…..firing rockets on Israeli citizens and using human shields as well in gaza…I would like to correct the Prime Minster on this and add the following additional charges I believe would also apply as well on the leadership of hamas…the additional civilian deaths in gaza and using children in suicide bombings over the years as well as teaching children to hate …this doesn’t exclude the up raisings over the years where people had gotten stones throwed at the cars and either injured or killed people in these incidences …..to also include countless others that gotten there children or the elderly murdered in the middle of the night and one example of what im talking about is the Fogle children but not to ignore the three young boys who were murdered not long ago…
    25 lives for Hamas to be charged with……I can only hope if and when the leaders of hamas are captured that the Israeli courts will not allow them to get off lightly…….. but rather hanged them in the front yard of abbas’s home in plain view for war crimes

    God is on the side of the Israelis!!! Hamas has sent over 1,705 rockets with the intent of murdering children by the 1,000s. They are just poor shots. Israel protects itself with precision firing of missles at those firing these rockets making sure they hit their target and not kill civilians! FACT! The only problem is, these Hamas cowards strap children onto their backs and place their rockets in the homes of children for the exact purpose for the enemies of Israel to blame Israel for killing babies! FACT! Israel is saving children by wiping Hamas off the face of the earth!!!!!!!!!!! ISRAEL, GOD CHOSEN PEOPLE!!
