This rather annoyed reporter spent way too long in a hot, stuffy bomb shelter.

Jerusalem has opened its bomb shelters.

There are reports that a house was hit in the general area.

  16. Haley Chace says:

    Kick Hell out of them Israel!

  17. Most of the posts here sound like a bunch of haters. The only way that there will be peace in the Middle East is if each & every soul – regardless of race or religion – craves peace more than they crave war. Of course Israel has to defend herself if bombs are being thrown at her but every one needs to want peace. Pray for peace, you know it is the greatest gift given to us by HaShem. Why else would we pray for it three times a day ? Well, mean it next time you pray.

  18. Muslims obviously really don’t see Jerusalem as a holy city so why let them stay there deport to their Arab friends in nearby countries and keep Jerusalem as a Jewish and Christian holy city.

  19. Just carpet bomb and shell Gaza already.

  20. Just carpet bomb and shell Gaza already.

  21. You’re a liar and a fool. Israel cannot “occupy” itself.

  22. You’re a liar and a fool. Israel cannot “occupy” itself.

  23. There is no Occupation

  24. The other Arab countries don’t want them

  25. To all the people that like to speak broadly and impressively of peace, let’s remember very clearly that Israel is the only side here that genuinely wants peace and wouldn’t lift a finger against even a fly In a Muslim home if they weren’t attacked first. This is the truth of Israel, and also of the United States. Leave Israel alone, and suddenly you’ll notice peace. Attack Israel, and that peace will be gone. The absence of peace is exactly the choice of the Muslim terrorist machine. The day that they truly want peace, they will prove it by their actions as well as their words. Starting on that day, there will be reigning peace. Until then, that peace will be replaced by strong self defense by Israel, and the rest of the free world. Now you know who your talk about peace should be aimed at. If you can get the Muslim terrorists to stop their hate and desire to wipe out the west, then the world will be forever grateful and the brotherhood of mankind that you and us all truly seek will take a very large step closer to realization.
