        Shooting fish in a barrel is more challenging than what the IDF is doing to further their own iteration of Lebensraum wherein the ethnic cleansing of the Gaza is the ultimate prize. Condos and Bistros awaiting the victors on the beachfront properties once the dirty deed has been completed. It may take a while but the ultimate goal of pushing the Palestinians into the sea cannot be denied.
        75-77% of the dead are civilians and the most repugnant of mankind picnic on the hills overlooking the Gaza and cheer each bomb blast as the air is filled with the aerosol of Gazan blood. Women and children torn to shreds by shrapnel and the Israeli minions gather on the hill to celebrate the death of innocents who have no where to go. Israel lost its conscience long ago and the moral high ground along with it. Who will weep for these poor souls caught up in such a lopsided frenzy of death and destruction with the ultimate goal being a greater Israel with not a single Arab within its ever expanding borders. By hook or by crook, or outright murder, Palestinians are being robbed of what little they have left after decades of brutal occupation. President Carter was spot on with his description of Israel being an Apartheid State. Much to the chagrin of indignant Israeli’s who are still in denial. Now a morally bereft nation looks within to justify it’s murders as the outside world sees Israel for what it has become. Herzl would be ashamed.

          Israel has left Gaza in 2005, not to return. If Hamas would not be firing rockets at our cities ever since, we would not be responding. We do not want Gaza. If we did, we could have carpet bombmed it like the USA and the UK did in Iraq – which we didn’t

      Shots taken in Syria, nice work, but cars in 2:20 do not have israeli plates. These are not plates from West Bank.

      the above picture of massacred gazans, is shocking.
      the wanton cruelty,visciousness and callousness of israels ‘indefensible’ force is horrifying
      just because they wear green army uniforms, doesnt mean that they are incapable of practicing the kind of state terrorism that they have regularly engaged in and have elevated to an art form, in the past few weeks.
      murder is murder
