    Seeing that it is civilians that is reported dead not militants.
    Are you now equating Palestinian civilians to murderers who sent rockets?

    I suggest re writing that paragraph and maybe you'll get a decent response

    Let me give a little background: For approximately 8 years cities like Sederot and Ashkelon has been absorbing agressive fire from Hamas soldiers. There has been times of calming, but these were always broken by hamas activists. As of now, their rockets are starting to improve and reach longer distances, endangering more citizens. About a week ago, Hamas sent over 80 rockets in one day at Sederot.

    Currently, I am considered in the hamas' fire zone. Every time I go outside I look for supportive walls in case of rockets dropping at me.

    So sure, right now only one person died in israel. But wait a few days, see how many will die, how many rockets will be sent at Israel and possibly suicide bombers enter Israel.

    Besides, unlike Hamas, the Israeli military tries its best to not harm civilians. I assure you that most of the palestinians who died are hamas soldiers that work every day on planning how to inflict terror on innocent israeli citizens.


    So maybe before you sympathise, try and learn some relevant history.
    May God continue to bless and protect you.

    Welcome to Debate Politics. Your first post is a fine one.

    They deserve credit for nothing and do not deserve your bonhomie.
    True but Hamas doesn't have such technology and hopefully will never get its hand on it.

    Do you not see a problem there?
    I see that Israel was releasing prisoners in good faith. I see Israel giving concessions. I see Israel trying to live in peace. And I see Palestinians with blood and hatred in there eyes and hearts taunting Israel. Attempting to draw Israel into a battle that the Palestinians know they can not win. Well they succeeded. And people died and the world will condemn Israel.

    Do you think that if Hamas had the weapons that could kill more israelis they wouldn't use them. Killing hundreds of Israelis. Israel has no choice but to defend itsself.

    You seem to believe there is no point in expecting Hamas to change. That dovetails with my belief.

    Where does hundreds of Israelis dead come from? Where are you getting that figure?

    I think Hamas has suceeded in making Israel to make itself out as the 'bad' people in this raid.

    I don't know, i remember Hamas when it won the elections. It seemed open to talks but what shuned by I Community. Maybe it can get back to that :P

    Or perhaps both Fatah and Hamas need to be disappear but for those parties to be gone, the need for those groups has to be resolved which means actually sorting out the conflict.

    I know where my sympathy lies ...
    First of all , Laila , Palestine was warned out .
    Israel told them that if they will attack us we will attack back .
    What you see in tv isnt real israel only hurts hamas people they dont have interest in innocent people, but palestine does, they attack us 24\7 for like 10 years with no response from israel, believe me that if israel wants to attack palestine they will our forces are much stronger that yours .
    the arabic people on the tv who lay down and seems to be dying or something like that are only acting most of them are just fine arab just want to show the world what they suffering and walking through.
    i promise you that if you will come to sderot for 1 day your opinion will change.

    Re: Israeli air strikes target Gaza

    Laila,

    You are allowed to condemn Israel if you like, but you have to include a reasonable argument with this condemnation. The fact that you're Muslim, and some of your Muslim brothers are being killed in the Gaza strip, naturally diverts your point of view towards supporting them. Which is fine, but it doesn't make any sense.

    The Palestinian rockets kill and hurt Israelis on a daily basis. I don't even need to provide you with a source; just watch the evening news. But besides that, this conflict doesn't resolve around the number of causalities of both sides. It all boils down to this: Palestinians are shooting rockets, daily, into independent Israeli territories. They are not shooting at settlements - that would be ungainly, as they are likely to miss - they are shooting at large towns instead. Sderot and Ashkelon are two large cities threatened by these rockets, and one day, one of these rockets is bound to carry destructive results - it had happened in the past.

    For some time, we have had a truce with Hamas. It was clear that this truce was meant to give Israeli politicians some time to deal with their own, local affairs, while Hamas armed itself once again. During this period of time, and till this very same minute, Palestinians continue to receive humanitarian aid, which is conveyed to them through Israeli territory. They also continue to receive electricity through our electrical stations, as well as petrol and diesel. And yesterday, two Palestinian girls have been killed as a result of a rocket attack launched by their brothers. And guess who handed out ambulances to them, to take care of the wounded.

    This fake truce has been broken by Hamas, which has apparently decided that they're armed and equipped well enough to continue murdering Israelis. But this time, Israel had a plan ready, which was flawlessly executed this morning. This plan was a defensive act, not a dirty scheme to murder Palestinians.

    The attacks this morning have been carried out in an extremely precise manner, and used as little explosives as possible so as to minimize civilian causalities. It is not our fault that Hamas uses civilians as human shields. This was evident today - when the so-called 'heroes' launching the rockets, couldn't continue to do so from the north of the strip (with a timer, of course!), as the air force was watching. So instead, they retreated to some civilian areas. Lovely.

    It is difficult to understand this situation. Until today, I couldn't understand it myself. I live in the center of Israel and never had any rockets landing near my house. But just today, visiting the city of Ashdod to meet some relatives, I was greeted with the first siren that this city has ever had. And trust me, until you've been in a similar situation, you can't understand how people living in the shadow of this threat live.
