      Another day when Hamas refuses a cease fire. Just as they did before the ground operation began. Just as they did when they began firing rockets at Israel and refused to relent before Israel began this operation.

      I can see how angry you people at ActiveStills are at Hamas.

        Yeah, how dare Hamas not accept Israel’s terms. Of course Israel also hasn’t accepted Hamas’ much more reasonable and justified ceasefire terms, but who cares, let’s keep murdering civilians in Gaza, Arb and the crack Hasbara Squad have got our backs.

            Why oh why won’t he give in?! Can’t he see that if he doesn’t, I’ll just keep on hitting him?

            It’s funny that you think it fine for Israel to have a muscular, ultranationalist finish the job/no negotiation with terrorists/never budge an inch ethical code, when you castigate the other side for not being defeatist and “rational.”

            This isn’t about an ethical code. This is about hateful, murderous terrorists shooting thousands of rockets at Israeli civilian areas. That needs to stop. Period.

            Remind me again, in an entire year, how much damage all these rockets have caused? You’re like a gun nut who shoots at kids with a kalashnikov for blowing up cherry bombs in his yard.

        why Israel dose not accept the breaking the siege of of Gaza to ceasefire? Hamas should continue fighting with Israel….It is the right of Palestinians to defend themselves….otherwise whenever Israel wants it begins a war and whenever it can not continue it speaks of ceasefire..

      A foreign worker in Israel was killed by Hamas fire on a greenhouse. Yet you will not see a picture of the dead or injured workers or the destruction caused to the greenhouse. 972mag will not show you the tunnels, the weapons, the rocket launchers or terrorists in actions because they are only interested in a picture which condemns Israel.

        Is this picture available on the Internet, where we all can see it?

          Goldie, never mind the picture of the greenhouse. You should look at the video of the IAF bombing the al-Wafa Hospital in Gaza. It is on Arutzsheva and shows several multiple, secondary explosions of Hamas munitions stored in the facility. From the video it appears the Hospital director and patients cleared out. The only ones left in the hospital were Hamas operatives, who will be reported as civilian deaths tomorrow.

            You could have just said “no, there is no picture online. You are anti-semitic if you don’t just take this on my word of honor.”
