1. "Spiral" of violence (Obama's new term?)
Steve Klein   (11.16.12)
"Spiral" of violence, cycle of violence, what's the difference? Isn't that what we saw in response to the 9/11 terror attacks? A spiral of violence between the United States and al-Qaeda?
2. Crying like babies!!!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (11.17.12)
These Muslim leaders' are crying, because they know their, cowardly, Muslim brothers are about to get a serious butt-whippin'! Go Israel: destroy these evil Muslims! They can enjoy their 72 ugly virgins in hell!!!
3. don't trust Obama...
Raina ,   USA   (11.17.12)
Well what do you know,,,,,Egypt's prime minister (Obama's Muslim Brotherhood friend) is siding with Hamas's bombings of Israel, and we're STILL giving Egypt billions of dollars in aid........for WHAT? so he can use the money to pay someone to bomb OUR ASSES TOO ??
4. Keep Your Corncern To Yourself
Brett ,   Florida   (11.17.12)
Where was your concern before Israel finally decided to fight back? Your genuine deep concern for a lasting "peace", with animals who only want to murder Israelis! Israel DOES NOT need American approval to kill their enemies. Period. Mind your own business and take care of your own affairs, that will be plenty for you to do. And that goes for the rest of the so called "international community" too!!!
5. Politics when rockets are falling . . .
SD Charger ,   San Diego   (11.17.12)
Do what ya gotta do Israel. They will whine just like last time and sympathize with the terrorists. It's up to Israel to get Hamas to see the light, otherwise they will be back firing rockets in a few days. Enough is enough. It's time to show strength and determination to stop the terror.
6. Oooh,Is not Obama a Israel enemy?
alejandro beltre ,   NY   (11.17.12)
Obama has funded Iron dome, $70 millions, while many in US need that money. The greatest joint drill ever is taking now place. now. Some slly and stupid first speak and then think. Simon Peres says Obama has been most Israel leaing US Pres......Folks, support Israel and put aside to foolish people.
7. Trust the British to worry about Israel.
Redfox ,   Brisbane, Australia   (11.17.12)
According to the article, they think Israel must be going to conduct a ground operation for the purpose of gaining sympathy.
8. British Foreign Minister William Hague
Son Of Cyrus   (11.17.12)
These guys are 2-faced. They are Arab Lovers. Just ignore them.
9. Excuse me Me Hague
Trevor ,   Israel   (11.17.12)
Israel can complete this mission in a few hours....all from the air and 1000s of innocent civilians will die....which is why we would launch a ground offensive, to save the lives of those people that Hamas are using as human shields...but we are sending in our sons in order to ensure that our action is precise so that less Palestinian civilians die....and you say that Israel will lose the sympathy of the west?....unfortunately you are correct...its a crazy world we live in....they hate us anyway....and we dont care....we do what is morally correct for us....and for them.
10. Shocking statement!
Sheik Rattle & Roll ,   USA   (11.17.12)
An Israeli PM thanking President Obama and the America people for spending there badly needed, hard earned tax dollars on Israel. Its about time.
11. #3: TRUST OBAMA MORE THAN FAKE ROMNEY.
Nowhere Man ,   Metropolis, Zion   (11.17.12)
12. @#9 Well said Trevor
Oren ,   Chicago   (11.17.12)
World is full of people who judge while having their head up their asses counting votes. Israel's moral compass points true, though I too fear the potential loss of Israeli lives from the soon to be ground offensive. Yonatan, be safe
13. # 11
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (11.17.12)
Obama has publicly stated he was born in Kenya and that he was a Muslim. He did that right after he was elected senator. When he decided to run for President he suddenly was born in Hawaii and a Christian. You call Romney a fake?
14. welfare
mimi ,   n.y.   (11.18.12)
