1. new policy for gaza needed
Jeffrey ,   Boston   (06.06.08)
scorched earth policy from north to south in gaza followed by a complete asphalt paving will turn gaza into a beautiful parking lot--that's the solution
2. Israel is being raped, still nothing happens
Johnny ,   Stockholm Sweden   (06.06.08)
Beats me.
3. rocket barrage hits negev
olmert ,   Dreamland   (06.06.08)
there's absolute nothing i can do to stop the rockets and mortar fire out of gaza, i am too busy with myself at this moment, but i can tell you, and my very good friend barak will confirm, that the great news is we will have a defence system in place to deal with the problem in 2 years time. shabat shalom and hugsamear
4. Hamas is obtaining weapons directly from Iran.
Robert Bernier ,   Tel Aviv   (06.06.08)
Ever since the Philadelphi Route between Gaza and Egypt was breached, Hamas has been bringing high-quality weaponry into the Strip, which has made it possible to fire beyond Ashkelon, as far as Kiryat Gat and Ashdod. Hamas in Gaza currently has firepower that must be dealt with immediately. If you don't take care of this problem now, then it will become more severe. The more time passes, the operation that will eventually be carried out will cost more casualties and more dead soldiers. An analyse of the present situation at :
5. barak and olmert boasts
alex   (06.06.08)
Notice both barak and olmert say israel wouldn't like to embark on a gaza operation but will if it has to. The operation is near, the decision is soon. Rocket fire will be stopped. Both are absolute liars, one surprisingly general who couldn't hold sharon's underwear, Olmert an absolute buffoon and coward.Sharon hardly spoke, the attack was quick and only held back by the US state department.Barak is no good at defense, the fight has gone out of him except for some covert operations.Olmert will lose every war for israel.
6. if gazans don't behave, i may have to react

no ham and egg for a week
7. Ambush
Robert ,   New Jersey, USA   (06.06.08)
With its missile barrage, Hamas is taunting Israel to respond. Why? Surely it has been itching for an opportunity to further embarrass Israel like its brothers to the north did two years ago. There is an ambush awaiting Israeli troops. Iranian anti-tank weapons smuggled through those tunnels under the Egypt-Gaza border? explosive-formed projectiles, so deadly in Iraq? It doesn't matter. Hamas wants to reclaim some pride. It isn't enough anymore just lobbing rockets into Israel while watching Nasrallah receiving hero worship on the cusp of the two-year anniversary of his losing a war in Lebanon. These Qassams are being lobbed in the face of Israeli threats to respond precisely to provoke such response. A 'surprise' ambush is awaiting the Israelis. I hope they know this.
8. Barak: "Gaza op is now seriously close, really, I mean it"
LEE ,   NY, USA   (06.06.08)
10. policies & procedures
Israel has to change its policy. Israel has to get people with threshold levels above, not below zero on the shock scale.
11. How Stupid Can Olmert Be?
Dan ,   Titusville, FL USA   (06.06.08)
When the first rockets hit Sidrot Olmert should have marched the IDF intio Gaza and clear the infection out. Instead he keep drawing a line and keeps redrawing a line and in each cowardly retreat the Palestinians supplied by Iran grow bolder and more agggressive. Now he says "We're close to attacking Gaza & Iran" and I guess he expects the Mullah's and terroroists to die laughing but instead they are fortifying their defenses putting our IDF in greater jeopardy. What the hell does Olmert care? He is not fighting nor is any of his family so I guess it is OK to waste the lives of IDF soldiers. What a Schmuck Olmerts is. We need Bibi.
12. Get it done!
Shimshon ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.06.08)
It's time to act, Hamas is laughing at us and we have lost all the respect we once had. The Israeli people are eager to finish the job in Gaza.
13. #1 New policy AND new leaders needed!
Rueben ,   Israel   (06.06.08)
14. #9 Atilla, are you drinking again today? You always make me
laugh!! ,   Jan usa   (06.06.08)
15. Rocket barrage hits Negev. Olmert pokes tongue, pulls faces.
Scott   (06.06.08)
This man will go down in history as something....I'm not sure exactly what. For goodness sakes, I think even the Pals are sick of his empty threats?! What an unbelievably weak leader. Pathetic.
16. Bombs? I don't give a damn about bombs! I'm fighting for my
political life here! ,   Ehud Olmert   (06.06.08)
17. A father and husband is dead because of an enemy state...
David ,   Hartford USA   (06.06.08)
that Israel refuses to defend against. No leader in the world would sit by while his citizens are being MURDERED by a rabid hostile government. None except Israel's. It's pathetic. Don't send in the IDF, let the IAF lay waste to the scourge. Why is Gabi such a pussy? How can he look at himself in the mirror? Why isn't he protecting Israelis at all costs?
18. #1-YOU ARE WRONG - new policy is not needed
Arie ,   BaGolan   (06.06.08)
The old policy of deterrence and strong responses is needed!
