    Good! At least one dead and scores injured demonstrate defending the border, but also restrain.
    Once more this shows popaks are talking nonsense, and state affairs are not games for children.

      The Government of Israel is not going to use overwhelming force in dealing with Gaza until Hamas scores a successful major terrorist attack resulting in at least a dozen Israeli deaths (a few less needed if the dead are children).

      The first responsibility of government is to provide for the safety of ALL its citizens. In Israel’s case, this means the citizens of Sderot, Ashkelon and the areas surrounding Gaza, not just Tel Aviv, Herzliya Pituach and Ramat Hasharon. It certainly appears that the Government under Bibi and Lieberman is failing those most exposed to immediate danger. After the next war with Gaza and the inevitable resulting “Commission of Inquiry” in its aftermath, maybe there will be political will in Israel to “Return Bibi Home to Sara”. ביבי – הביתה לשרה

    Hamas is winning because of Israel’s weakness and stupidity. We be Charlie Brown. Hamas is Lucy. And for 13 years we ALWAYS get Gaza wrong. ALWAYS.
