      Honorable groups of people. If Israel is going to change course, the change can only come from the society itself because as we see US, European Union, France, UK, Germay not only are silent but accepting this escalation.

      Perhaps those Israeli protesters should also have protest in support of the one million plus Israelis who are being targeted by missiles .
      The missiles are directed towards civilian centers .
      Deliberately targeting civilians as Hamas does ,constitutes a WAR CRIME,
      irrespective of casualties .
      Terror directed at civilians is a WAR CRIME

        Rsgengland, if you really wanted war crimes prosecuted in Israel, you know there would be tens of thousands of Israeli colonial soldiers behind bars in the hague for perpetrating collective punishment and murdering innocent men, women and children in cold blood. Just shut up.

          Ben,
          Population of Gaza strip is voluntarily engaged in war against Israel.

          From the international point of view Israel is free to do as it pleases – nation which declares war unsupported by the international community is practically stripped of all rights.

          All Gazans have to do is democratically elect government which would stop attacks against Israel. Until then Gazans will have about as much rights as targets in shooting range.

          Indeed, one who allows launching missiles from one’s own back yard should not be surprised to have a similar gift right back.

            Dear Ben ,
            You have thrown a lot of invective , without any evidence or backup to substantiate it .
            How can Israel be a Colonial power ,
            when it is the first Independant country in the area for nearly two thousand years .
            The last Independant state was Judea/Israel after the Jewish Revolt in the 1st century CE,
            Please get your facts straight and be a bit more polite

          Ben, I want war crimes prosecuted on both sides and brought to court – if necessary – in Den Hague.
          But other than you, the ICC prosecutors have seen no reason to indict Israelis, not tens of thousands, not even a hand full.
          You’re – sorry to say – bullshi*tting out of impotent ideologic hatred

      It’s a relief to hear the voices of these people and it’s only sad that, as one speaker says, they are ‘a tiny minority’. I have dared suggest this point of view on my facebook page and have got criticised a lot. There are many blinkered people out there. Thanks for doing this.
