1. It's time to take care of Hamas,snake is growing fast.......
Asher ,   NY,US   (08.18.11)
2. Barak
Alfred ,   Raanana   (08.18.11)
Barak should have kep his mouth shut.. The Hamas HQ should have been blasted with all the SOBs inside. All known tunnels and terror cells should be liminated. And no more supplies to Gaza until Shalit is freed . ENOUGH!
3. this time make sure no prisoners!!!
gali ,   israel not palestine   (08.18.11)
4. Go hide with Nasrallah in his hole in the ground.
Rebecca ,   Modiin   (08.18.11)
5. Why is Hamas concerned if not involved?
Cynic ,   USA   (08.18.11)
6. To: Cynic at No. 5
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.18.11)
Because Israel has stated on any number of occasions that ANY terror attacks sourced in the Gaza Strip will be deemed to be the responsibility of Hamas. Hamas -- and the Strip -- are about to get seriously pounded. The terrorists don't much care for any human lives other than their own and they are a little bit scared. As well they should be. Payback can be a bitch. Israel is going to do some real payback. Hamas -- the cowards they are -- are scared. That's all.
7. The heads of the terror organizations must be targeted now.
JBI   (08.18.11)
8. Hint to IDF
Steve Eisenberg ,   ME USA   (08.18.11)
Wait till the Hamas HQ staff returns, then hit.
9. Time to end the farce
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (08.18.11)
Destroy Hamas now and make sure that none at all survive
10. "The IDF will soon prepare for a response."
ya ya ,   houston   (08.18.11)
WTF? Why is IDF not already prepared for a response and able to execute immediately? As soon as news arrived of the attacks in Eilat area, the IDF response should've been launched immediately and harshly. This pussy-footing around is why this persists.
11. @8 prob doesn't matter...
joe ,   st louis usa   (08.18.11)
They generally keep their headquarters in densely populated urban areas. Once such headquarters was in the basement of Gaza City's main children's hospital. Politically they are difficult targets to strike. That's why Israel tracks where Hamas leadership lives, works, which cars they drive, which routes they take... The headquarters is not important. Israel will get them, and will probably do so in a way that doesn't even create the kind of civilian casualties that Hamas would like to see.
12. Hamas vacates HQ bracing for retaliation
William ,   Israel   (08.18.11)
you'll have to return to them sometime, Haniyeh. It's ok...we'll wait. With terrorist scum, we're very patient.
13. Barak and BB please wait
David ,   On this planet   (08.18.11)
until all Hamas buildings are empty for you to strike, isn't that your style, you and BB just freed those criminals last week as a good will gesture, both of you should be accountable for today's dead . If you cant defend Israel leave your office
14. Totally stupid!
Observer 1 ,   Chrangbegbo, Ghana   (08.18.11)
Shoot, don't talk!
15. speedy recovery to all injures!!!!
Ayala ,   Israel   (08.18.11)
16. Interesting - so why now?
William ,   Israel   (08.18.11)
Is this an attack initiated by Hamas to derail the PA's bid at the UN next month (even though it's already expected to fail)? Is the attack a way to gain concessions in the Shalit negotiations, even though it probably just hardened Israel's stance that violence will skyrocket if terrorist scum are released from prison? Maybe the attack was a way to stir attention away from Syria and Hizbullah. The attack was planned in advanced and coordinated, so it wasn't just an opportunistic stunt, which means that civilian were infact the ONLY target these guys had. IDF - go pound the crap out of them. PM - slow down deliveries to Gaza, and end prisoner family visits effective immediately. FM - instruct Israeli diplomats to make this front page everywhere, and educate the world on "palestinian" war crimes, and work to launch lawsuits against Hamas and their supporters. Prosner - call an urgent UNSC meeting to denounce Hamas and pressure them (and all "palestinians") to end all violence before any talks can begin.
17. Retaliation ? Whatever Israel does it
DT ,   TA Israel   (08.18.11)
will be just a pin prick of what is needed for fear of "international condemnation ". Contemptuous.
18. Hitting Home
RD ,   Colorado, United Sta   (08.18.11)
As an American I wish America would wake up. How can we continue to support Palestinian causes and truly support Israel? If this happened in the US, we would automatically make this our enemy. Why should Israel be held to a different standard?
19. Timed Response
Tom ,   CA   (08.18.11)
Israel took a huge hit with the last war due to propaganda. Although they won the ground battles, Hamas won over the media (especially with that boat attack). They're probably biding their time to determine if it really was Hamas who was behind the attack or another group (Iran/Syria) that wants to start another war via proxy.
20. # 6
Jonathan ,   Jersey City   (08.18.11)
I hope you are right, it is about time for this to end. Since they are hiding among the general population whom, for the most part, are helping facilitate these attacks and the anonymity of these TERRORISTS we have to protect ourselves against both "civilians" (and I use the term sparingly) and terrorists alike. That is the harsh truth the world needs to face. Further, for all those whom believe Israel doesn't have the right to defend itself just know, unless you jump on the band wagon with us, you are probably next.
21. welcome the return of targeted assasinations
bg ,   usa   (08.18.11)
I think the IDF will make a statement with this one. HAMAS will be dealt a serious blow and the leadership will be crushed or forced in exile, nobody that is associated with hamas should be spared after this. Also we should re-occupy the Sinai until egypt can show some sense of responsability.
22. how sick... you cant just bomb gaza, because some terrorists
eporue ,   europe   (08.18.11)
attacked a bus... who were the attackers, they were shot ? if you can publish pictures of children with slit throats, then publish the pictures of the dead terrorists, so they can be identified... you cant just bomb the place now... ! this is really sick ! how can you support such a sick thing ? considering the whole picture, i think you were just f>cked by your government anyway... but - you dont care, do you...
23. destroy hamas's beautiful mansions the hamas leaders own!
rachel ,   usa   (08.18.11)
show the world how these people really live !
24. Now is the time for 'disproportional' retaliation.
David ,   Hartford USA   (08.18.11)
Carpet bomb the entire tunnel system. Destroy every hamas gathering place, (wait until they return though!) and target their dirtbag leaders. How long will you allow this cancer to exist on your doorstep? You have carte blanche to eviscerate Hamas- so just DO IT! Much of Gaza should be in ruins tonight. Anything else is just a lost opportunity. How did you let this happen?
25. Ho Hum, nothing will be done
barry ,   chicago usa   (08.18.11)
A few airstrikes, lots of tough talk, nothing more. this is the Israel since 2000. What's the point of overwhelming force if you'll never use it.
26. WHY were terrorists given time to evacuate headquarters?
dante ,   uk   (08.18.11)
how about this: just hit them hard, without warning, WITHOUT DELAY. just kill them. kill every terrorist and all that give them cover or support of any kind. just kill them.
27. we Pray 4 Israel !!!
Joan ,   CA, USA   (08.18.11)
28. Our hearts & prayers go out to the victims & their families
Penny ,   USA\ Israel   (08.18.11)
in Israel. We hope for the day when Israelis can live in peace and security
my heart goes out to ,   Israel   (08.18.11)
30. Eilat
Aryeh ,   Kfar Saba,Israel   (08.18.11)
