2. idf performance
iraj   (01.06.09)
You guys are doing a good job, don't listen to traditional arab wailing which are phony, and don't listen the reflexive coward cries of europe -peace at any price with france and others backed by the arab countries yell threats. Where the hell were they when israel complained about rocket fire and the UN told israel go screw herself. But as we play hockey in canada, design a flap of bullet proof clear plastic that hangs down from the top of the helmet to the throat. The officer would be able to fix it in position if he doesn't need it.This way he would get some protection against eye, face and throat injuries. Also, there should be a protective skin that soldiers could wear on their arms on legs that would increase protection. IDf-and Israel keep going and carefully proceed according to your strategy and not hamas'. Launch artillery and big rocket fire to cleans areas you wish to patrol.
3. Israel could make turist destination in Sderot!
European ,   Monte Negro   (01.06.09)
Sderot was excellent place to get more adrenaline, I was ready to come. but now you are war criminals in the eyes of Europe, very sad.
4. Just another drop in a sea of blood
who cares
5. It is a sorrowful but necessary cost of freedom for other
Rivkah   (01.06.09)
Israelis. The deaths bring back the memories of losing high school and college friends in the Viet Nam war long ago. And now, the children of friends are being lost in Iraq and Afganistan. My comfort is that the deaths are mostly of the young under the age of 25, the age of Jewish Priesthood in ancient times which is a watershed year to the Lord for the eternal fate of those who die, since those who die after 25 are more likely to be held accountable for not choosing the Lord as a lifestyle and belief system.
6. Biased
BuJ ,   Dubai, UAE   (01.06.09)
The whole front page of Ynet doesn't show anything about the 500+ Palestinian innocent casualties, courtesy of the IDF and not Iran.
7. Israel of course is winning this war
Whomyacallit ,   bc canada   (01.06.09)
#1 is obviously furioius that Israel can go into a place like Gaza and smash it, as it is doing. These hamas thugs are getting today something that fatah couldn't do. Of all the wars Israel has fought since 1948, anyone that doesn't hate Israel knows that it hasn't really lost one.
8. to #3
Felix ,   Tel Aviv   (01.06.09)
How about the other way around: Chernogorje gets bombed and we come to get watch and get adrenaline?
9. Thank You
Jewish Refugee ,   U.S.A.   (01.06.09)
Israel does not surrender, we fight till the end. We have no other choice.
10. Blessed be their names.
Vicky ,   Ashkelon, Israel   (01.06.09)
In Israels heart for ever.
11. What goes around, comes around only 10 times worse
Jad ,   USA   (01.06.09)
12. To 1 A kill ratio of 1:100 per IDF soldier is losing?
The Business   (01.06.09)
13. to 4, - like we care what you think...
PHILIP H   (01.06.09)
14. Thankyou #9 for a great link
KO ,   London England   (01.06.09)

jb ,   Canada   (01.06.09)
And you've lost another billion brain cells. Have you finished memorising the Koran yet? Better hurry before Sharia becomes the official religion in the UK! Kill 100, Jews-who cares? Kill 1 muslim terrorist, civilian sympathiser, whatever... massacre, holocaust, genocide! FOAD
16. Censorship?
Avi ,   tel aviv   (01.06.09)
Does the IDF have to give us the casualty report by installment? Why does the military have to clear articles for publication? Those articles are written by the Israeli free press. They are certainly not written by Hamas or Hezbollah. We have failed in our campaign in Gazza and our first casualty was the freedom of the press.
17. To 14. You are more than welcome
Jewish Refugee ,   U.S.A.   (01.06.09)
This two front war we are winning on the military front, but we are getting smashed on the PR war. This site will provide links to other sites as well. Please check it out and tell everyone else about Israel Act Now Also, everyone who feels writing an article for ISRAEL ACT NOW is more than welcome, just e-mail it to me.
18. our finest and bravest sacrificed on the altar
chaim schonbrun ,   brooklyn ny   (01.06.09)
of the criminaly insane leftist self hating delusional traitorous cowards,who worry only about the lives of our enemies,but don't give a damn about the lives of our precious young men. any other normal country would have obliterated gaza from the air and turned it into a parking lot without sending in its young men to be slaughtered in hand to hand combat with these murderous butchers. Olmert and Barak we will never forget and forgive you for this. hope and pray you will one day face a military court for this criminal act
19. Jewish Refugee. I'm recruited
KO ,   London England   (01.06.09)
My son, who also supports Israel, will help me follow your instructions concerning Youtube etc. Thankyou for your kind response. LONG LIVE ISRAEL.
20. Israel has lost ALL credibility.
Jon ,   US   (01.06.09)
Its over - time to call it a day and await the backlash from the rest of the world. Perhaps now you will focus attention on your corrupt politicians and commanders to explain what the hell they are playing at.
21. #8
Libyan Guy ,   Italy   (01.06.09)
Come to Napoli (Cammora) or Calabria (N'drangda) or Bagaria (Mafia), here you get pure adrenalin with original Italian standards (some pizza & pasta) to enjoy it.
22. no more concessions
alexi   (01.06.09)
the only force that can block tunnels in rafah border is IDf at the philadephia route. second, no more ollmert territorial concesions which got us in this trouble in the first place. And that should be understood. Absolutely no withdrawal from the west bank, otherwise ben gurion airport and traffic will be paralysed. They want the whole of israel, don't you realize that. Do not rush into a ceasefire. Keep going and ignore the school bombinga s it was provoked by the terrorists inside.
23. Credibility or not, how can this end?
daniel   (01.06.09)
If Hamas continues to fire misiles Israel can't stop.
24. If u don't live in Israel your opinion is irrelevant!
Israel ,   Israeli   (01.06.09)
25. #16 and Free Press
Elianah ,   Ramat HaSharon, IL   (01.06.09)
They clear it for publication after the family of the soldier has been notified. You wouldn't want the family to find out from reading a newspaper that their son's been killed, would you? Kind of a harsh way to hear harsh news.
26. Hey #15! How about 600 Palestinians?
GUH   (01.06.09)
You seem to be caring a lot for only six. Hypocrisy? I think so.
27. Think
john ,   UK   (01.06.09)
Imagine that Egypt, Jordan, and Syria had won the Six Day War, leading to a massive exodus of Jews from the territory of Israel. Imagine that the victorious Arab states had eventually decided to permit the Palestinians to establish a state of their own on the territory of the former Jewish state. (That's unlikely, of course, but this is a thought experiment). Imagine that a million or so Jews had ended up as stateless refugees confined to that narrow enclave known as the Gaza Strip. Then imagine that a group of hardline Orthodox Jews took over control of that territory and organized a resistance movement. They also steadfastly refused to recognize the new Palestinian state, arguing that its creation was illegal and that their expulsion from Israel was unjust. Imagine that they obtained backing from sympathizers around the world and that they began to smuggle weapons into the territory. Then imagine that they started firing at Palestinian towns and villages and refused to stop despite continued reprisals and civilian casualties. Here's the question: would the United States be denouncing those Jews in Gaza as "terrorists" and encouraging the Palestinian state to use overwhelming force against them?
28. counting the 6th, now all Israeli casualty are military
observer   (01.06.09)
29. to jewish inciters: 2 of the 6 soldiers are Israeli-Arabs
Rami of Nazareth ,   Israel   (01.06.09)
When you decide to incite and spread hatred against israeli-Arabs, just remmemebr that 1/3 of the IDF soldiers killed are Israeli-Arabs defending their country..
30. May Hashem bless the soldier and curse the enemy with death.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (01.06.09)
