Unless you live in Sderot or environs, you really need to shut up.
8. The IDF makes every effort to
Reuven   (11.08.12)
avoid harming noncombatants. The Palis rejoice when they kill our children.
9. If you hang around with terrorists ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.08.12)
.... who fire at Israeli troops, you should expect return fire. What kind of parents allow a thirteen year old child consort with terrorist scum, anyway? Oh ... never mind. I can answer that one.

12. Because this is what happens to live shields
Stoutviking   (11.09.12)
Your beloved freedom fighters intentionally surround themselves with civilians, so the world could come out and call us "child killers". Why our kids don't get killed? Because our troops don't strap them to the jeep when patrolling the border. By the way, had your country finished the repetitions with the families of 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed in your air raids?
13. Gaza motor fire response to the murder of a child by iDF

14. This news was the headline
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (11.09.12)
of all hungarian neo nazi websites, under the title, " Murderous jews killed palestinian kid again ".
15. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
So you mourn the death of a thirteen year old terrorist, yet not a word about the children of Sderot who are terrorized on a daily basis. I guess that says everything about you that anyone needs to know. And the word is "mortar," not "motor." Get an education, can't you? You're making a fool of yourself.

Your meshugeh and you will get Jewish people killed with your views.
19. #1
This is nothing to do with Syria or Syrians. The IDF love to target unarmed women and children, and also senior citizens in Gaza. Stop trying to change the subject!
20. #9 Sarah B.
What kind of parents allow a thirteen year old child to go to a pizza shop alone?
21. To: No. 20
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
He was with four friends. And except for the odd ersatz "Palestinian" suicide bomber, pizza places are safe. And how on earth can you equate going for a slice of pizza with friends with hanging out with terrorists? No wonder you submitted anonymously. You should be ashamed to even make such an absurd analogy.
22. To: No. 18
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
Did you leave school in the third grade, dear? It's "you're," not "your." Get an education -- but you'd have to stop cowering in the corner first. Don't worry; your own shadow won't bite you.
23. To: No. 19
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
The IDF targets the areas from whence mortars and missiles are fired. You cannot fault Israel because the ersatz "Palestinians" are cowards who hide behind women, children and the elderly. For example, they cache their weapons in mosques, schools and hospitals. It's not that they do not realize that in so doing, they turn those mosques, schools and hospitals into legitimate military targets. They know full well. They just don't care. By the way, you need a course in reading comprehension. It was the terrorists who initiated the fire (so much for being unarmed). Israel merely responded.
24. #23 Sarah B.
During Operation Cant Lead, the Israeli IDF 1. Killed a pregnant woman, then had T-shirts made with "One bullet, 2 terrorists" on them. 2. They used a 12 year old boy to open bags that the IDF thought were boobie-trapped. 3. You know about the "good neighbour" policy-using civilians to enter homes and buildings first-again in case they are boobie trapped. 4. As they tanks were leaving Gaza, they fired on, and blew up a farm house containing an innocent 67 year old farmer, killing him for target practice. Indeed the IDF are the cellar dwellers of being moral. You people make me sick!
25. To: No. 24
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.10.12)
You've been watching too much Al Jazeera and reading too much Arab press. Do you know, though, that Cast Lead would never have happened had the ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists not fired missiles and mortars into Israel on a daily basis. You should be grateful -- Israel could destroy Gaza in no time at all -- reduce it to a pile of stinking rubble -- but we didn't do that, did we? How many countries in the world can you name that leaflet areas that are going to come under bombardment, giving people time to move to safety? It is not Israel's fault that terrorists refused to allow the people to leave. The ersatz "Palestinians" make me sick. Not a moral bone in any of their bodies. Just terrorist jackals and hyenas that can slit the throats of a sleeping family of five.
26. #13 There was mortar fire long before
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.10.12)
the child decided to commit suiicide I will tell you what the other guy, since you're not worth a second post on the subject -" Hamas uses any & all of their people as Human Shields, irregardless of age or sex I'll give you a link to "Fathi Hammad", he can be viewed on Youtube Hammad brags about how they used their civilians as Human Shields, he'll explain it in detail [P.S. Hamas starts training their kiddies while they're still in kindergarten
27. #6 - you're question should instead be...
William ,   Israel   (11.11.12)
(directed to Gazan terrorists) "Hiding behind children? Why???"
28. #13 - except child wasn't murdered by IDF
William ,   Israel   (11.11.12)
he was caught in the crossfire between Gaza terrorists and the IDF, after the Gazan terrorists fired on the IDF (for no reason) and used human shields. sadly, those actions (war crimes) are acceptable by you and all BDS.
29. #11 - sad you bring race into this...
William ,   Israel   (11.11.12)
when the real issue is child endangerment by Gazans who use their own children as human shields. Gazan terrorists admitted they fired on the IDF first and reports show they were in a populated area. That's a war crime. If anything, the poor kid's Arab identity made him a justified martyr by Gazan terrorists.
30. #24 - you need to qualify your statements, anonymous
William ,   Israel   (11.11.12)
1) The IDF didn't make t-shirts about anything. If this was done, it was by an errant group of soldiers who ignored protocol. Every army has them and sadly bad things happen when they do. 2) the 12-year old belonged to the same family carrying the bags. If there was nothing to worry about, no one should protest. If there was, the family would have said something before hand. If they didn't and the kid was hurt, the blame is on them for child endangerment - and using kids as human shields by placing bombs next to them is a WAR CRIME! 3) Again, if there is no problem, the civilians won't be hurt, will they? In such cases, civilians were not used against booby trapped homes, they were relatives or friends of terrorists wanted inside and their entry - after announced - was to help convince the person to give up. If the home was really booby trapped, as we've seen in Cast Lead, and all points in West Bank, civilians are cleared from the area and the bombs neutralized which ended up damaging the home. Sadly there are cases where homes are booby trapped with the families still inside. In those cases - one specifically during Cast Lead - the IDF placed their own lives on the line to neutralize the bomb and free the family. Sadly, you consider this use of human shields by terrorists to be ok. 4) You need to provide proof of this. The IDF does not target civilians but is allowed per rules of war to fire on areas from where attacks originated from provided civilian casualties can be avoided. Since you leave the context out here for your own argument, it means you don't have an argument. Sadly, because of your anti-Israel bias, you're willing to accept the massive violence, war crimes, and child endangerment by Arab terrorists - something costing these people their happiness, their health, a decent living, and a future without hatred of others. You people make me sick!!
