1. Yayy!!!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.01.11)
Well, do it. Gilad Shalit is home now. Turn Gaza into a stinking heap of rubble. No mercy. NO MERCY. These jackals need to be taught a lesson. Hello. Welcome to the first grade.
2. Out of curiosity ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.01.11)
... why on earth would Israel want to risk the lives of its soldiers by sending tanks into Gaza when we can destroy it from the air? It isn't exactly as if Gaza's denizens are human beings, you know? Destroy them, before they destroy us.
3. Israel is Sacrifycing its People...
Abdel Karim Salim ,   Jerusalem   (11.01.11)
It seems Israel is the right one to blame for all this . Everything that is going on in the Gaza Strip is Israel's making...
4. foolish Israel much too predictable
Bernard Ross ,   st anns bay, jamaica   (11.01.11)
Israel should be unreadable not transparent as to its actions. Gaza should even be attacked for no apparent reason so as to sow fear and kill terrorists. Now everyone knows that only a massive attack will bring a massive counter. Stupid; they should have a massive attack because it is unexpected. However, ist is obvious that Israel wants to maintain hamas against fatah to prevent unity or swindling peace deals. . Though a good idea it has the limitation of only taking actions of subterfuge and being too restrained.
5. Thank you Egypt
Baruch ,   TA   (11.01.11)
Thank you Egypt for your efforts. Without your efforts it would have been a mess.
6. does this operation have a name yet?

Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (11.01.11)
8. Will the god damn media learn to be responsible
Al   (11.01.11)
Shut the F up. No one needs details, just let the IDF do what they have to do. THE Israel Media is not TMZ. Shut up already!
9. The Final Warning Number 126 from Israeli bigmouths
ab   (11.01.11)
All talk no action.They look more and more like arabs of the yore while the arabs are becoming like Israelis of yesterday. Fire Barak !
10. Sheer Idiocy !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.01.11)
Has the Israeli Pm realy been a Military Officer ? Nr 2 and 4 Has the Point here. I Quote - Offensive to be ordered only after massive rocket fire. Comment - What is a Massive Rocket Fire ? So a Rocket now and then will be tolerated ? If One Rockets Score a Full Hit somewhere and kill dosens of People. What then ? This israeli PM is a - Arn.Sweden.
11. Gaza
David ,   Haifa Israel   (11.01.11)
may HaShem extend his shield to protect our soldiers as they reduce gaza to rubble with tis "people."
12. Translation: Attack on Iran imminent
Jake ,   USA   (11.01.11)
IDF authorized to smash terrorist infrastructure "only after massive rocket fire". IMO - Israel is in the final stages of preparation for an attack on Iran. This is a pre-authorization to respond powerfully to the Gaza rocket fire that will ensue.
13. the upside down world
cristian ,   buenos aires arg   (11.01.11)
the life is too short to be fighting and dying for what? death undoubtedly will come for us all,do not make the death comes faster than it is really has to come,ignorance can be healed by learning but stupidity is forever
14. Ah yes! This solves the menace from the south.
Harry Wright ,   UK   (11.01.11)
What a dramatic decision! I wonder why it sounds just like all the old ones when the terrorists demand that Israel stop all retaliations and Israel complies.
15. Will someone.please stop Israel from its aggression!!!
Melissa ,   US   (11.01.11)
The world needs to slap sanctions on Israel not Syria. Israel destroys gaza and the way people can live there. Israel needs to stop her aggression against the peaceful palistenian peoples. I weep for palestine. Why does israel have to be such a bully. Thatreminds of a saying when I was a child. WHY DONT YOU GO PICK ON SOMEONE YOUR SIZE ISRAEL!?!
Dan ,   Florida   (11.01.11)
Every nation has an absolute right to defend itself from other nations, state sponsored terrorism or mad terrorists acting independently but from a "safe" haven of a supposed uninvolved country. If that defense includes offensive operations to root out the attacker, that is a legitimate act of self defense. Gaza must be emptied of terrorists.
17. #2 Sarah B: Gazans Aren't Human Beings?!??
American Jew ,   New Jersey, USA   (11.01.11)
u r destroying the great state of Israel with ur ignorant rants!
18. #7 Jerry -LEARN ENGLISH!
Shlomo ,   USA   (11.01.11)
19. Abdel Karim # 3
Arnold ,   Canada   (11.01.11)
Israel disengaged settlers and IDF from inside Gaza in 2005. We the people of the outside world assumed the Gazans would take the opportunity to establish the beginnings of the Palestinian society and show the Israelis they can do it by peaceful means. Therefore instigating the push to get settlers out of the West Bank. But instead all they did was fire more rockets at Israel from a closer distance. Gaza GOT what it worked for.
20. Correct Jake,,,
Steve ,   USA   (11.01.11)
Some of this rocket attack from Gaza I think is to make Israel take their eye 'off the mark'. IDF now has their marching orders to 'invade' GAZA as soon as the first rockets are shot after the IRAN targets are starting to be bombed. This is long overdue, sure, there will be consequences, but if the IDF operates from a position of strength (and before IRAN has nuclear weapons they can deliver), they will back down, I'm sure of it. Iran's forces are a paper tiger just like Sadaam's, they will be useless when under attack.
21. Waste of time....
Shalom ,   U.S.A.   (11.01.11)
As long as Netanyahu is in office nothing positive will happen. The posters are wasting their time and energy. This man has no pride, he is spineless! He lets the people's lives to be paralized, he turned Israel into a banana republic, he has suspended money transfer to the PA, for how long? Chase him out of his office!
22. Only after massive rocket fire?
Only Israel
23. After 5 days a green light !
A Very Heavy Stone ,   Florida   (11.01.11)
Wow Israel is really moving to send a message. LOL
24. 30 rockets a day is not "massive"?
dixie ,   South, Israel   (11.01.11)
This is too much. Israel seems determined to allow terrorists who are openly dedicated to the destruction of Israel and every Jew living there to dictate our existance. Since when is 30 missiles in one day, killing one Israeli civilian, NOT "massive"? And since when is 10 hours when Gaza does not fire a rocket into a city a "ceasefire"? Our "leaders" should go home. We have had all the reasons to have massively airbombed Gaza already. The politicos cannot keep starting from zero AFTER a few quiet hours.
25. As soon as one Gazan "civilian" is killed
BJL ,   usa   (11.01.11)
The whole world will shreek in anger, call on Israel to "use restraint" , the will be a UN resolution condeming Israel, Tzipi Livini will call for a cease fire and new elections condeming Likud..etc etc. Israels disfunctional government will cave...not finish the job and the Arabs will laugh and import even MORE missiles from Iran,Syria, North Korea and China. It is easy to predict! Where is the Mighty Israel of 1967?
26. rockets
spookey ,   birmingham uk   (11.01.11)
why dont israel fire rockets back every one they fire you fire six back whats good for the goose is good for the ganda ,
27. the upside down minds
cristian ,   buenos aires arg   (11.01.11)
it seems that is more important the private life of a single person which really does not care to anyone,do not change anyone´s life and do not add anything to anyone´s life only to the one single person than the social life and the social behaviour which changes everyone´s life and add everyone´s life right and good or wrong and bad,everyone just pay attention and judge or accuse the personal life and do not judge nor accuse the behaviour of the social life as i have been thinking for a long,long time ago.this world sucks! and the minds and brains of almost everyone is burnt!,it is more important if an star,leader or "winner" got a mansion,buy a new car,travel around the world,sell millions of goods or whatever than if the workers´salaries are right,if the places are clean and secure,if the workers´participate when factories earn a lot of money,if the students are really learning what they want to be in the future,no one can see the origin of the troubles which leads to evil but everyone only sees the conclusion,missing the most important thing:the origin,ignorance can be healed by learning but stupidity is forever
28. israel geting ready to invade
which other country would allow its people to live under rockt fire israel her self created this mess by leaving gaza how stupid can u be.
29. Nr 12.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.01.11)
You have a point here but I think, the Rockets fired from Gaza, was an Iranian anticipation of an Imminent Israeli strike against Iran. It was conducted to avert Israels attention and resolve. Arn.Sweden.
