1. Barak and Bibi:
Mira ,   Vienna   (11.10.12)
"We will not allow any attacks on Israeli lives. We will respond with determination to any such acts." Blablablablabla..............
Brant ,   Hilton Head, SC   (11.10.12)
Here we go again; Hamas, or some other Israel-hating entity, starts something. The IDF retaliates. The Palestinians announce that the only casuaties are children and old ladies; the media rush to publish pictures of bleeding, innocent Palestinians, and all of it... all of it, is the fault of the Palestinians who fired the first shot; except of course, if the wronged party is Israel, for, in this insane world, neither Israel nor the Jews can be the wronged party.
3. level treatment required
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.10.12)
Israel should warn neighborhoods in Gaza that if they permit terrorists to use their territory to fire at us, we will LEVEL it. After level treatment such as this, the locals will not want their homes leveled and stop them from using their neighborhoods as firing zones.
4. stop doing nonsense to israel
alfredo ,   philippines   (11.10.12)
if you doesnt want to be destroyed stop doing nonsense. hamas need to learn golden rule ( Muslim religion taught " No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself"). by Hadith..... now where this lesson you put?
5. You mean Obama's weapons are being used on Israelis?

#2 What did they expected!
8. Oh well
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.10.12)
You pay your money, you take your chances. Looks like the terrorists lost this one. Cry me a river. I wonder when the ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists will claim that some of those slain were merely picking flowers for their mothers ..... Yeah, right.
9. how are the IDF soldiers that got hit in the jeep?
jerome ,   basalt, colorado   (11.10.12)

13. Level the entire area, and everyone in it - ENOUGH!!!!!!
Talula ,   Israel   (11.10.12)
These savages shouldn't be allowed to live, they are vile vermin. I wish our boys a speedy recovery - bless them.
14. Bibi and Barak are yellow
Rachel ,   US   (11.10.12)
These 2 clowns will never defend Israel.
15. "an additional response will be determined"
A ,   Belgium   (11.10.12)
as soon as DefenseLESS Minister Ehud "Creampuff" Barak finishes watching Rechov Soomsoom. Why is this person still allowed to hold a position that is basically a matter of life or death for Israel? The IDF has been attacked and has suffered casualities, Israel needs a Patton right now, any candidates?
16. Israel hits people, Hamas hits soldiers
observer ,   Egypt   (11.10.12)

18. Destroy a number of hamasss apartments..
Beary White ,   Norway   (11.10.12)
The only way, one hamasssss house pr rocekts sent into Israel...
19. who was the genius?
Let's give a moment to remember who are the geniuses that let this all happen. Not so long ago, Israel ruled Gaza with 3 battalions. Jews and Arabs lived and worked side by side. Then some geniuses imported the pig Arafat and his army to occupy Gaza, and later ethnically cleansed the Jews. Now the IDF forces surrounding Gaza are far greater and more expensive than ever before, yet Arab rockets are striking as far north as Gedera and Yavne. To help those who forget, some of the geniuses are Ehud, Shimon, Shelly, Aryeh, and Zippy.
20. IDF needs to up the ante.
Shlomo ,   USA   (11.10.12)
The "measured" response has failed time and time again. You are supposed to learn from your mistakes, not repeat them.
21. Oh shit !
Gabe ,   Canada   (11.10.12)
One Quassam is too many !
22. #16. So Sderot and Ashkelon and Be'ersheva
A ,   Belgium   (11.10.12)
are military bases. You lie. Moslems lie., its in your genetic make up. And when the Moslem Brotherhood finds out you are taking advantage of the freedom of speech that will NEVER be allowed in your backward, primitive country to post your garbage on an Israeli website, they will take care of you too. Enjoy your life in Egypt...while you still have one.
23. To # 16
AG ,   Sao Paulo, Brasil   (11.11.12)
This is totally wrong. Hamas keeps attacking daily the Israeli residents (Children, woman and old people) that live in the Israeli side of the border. Hamas keeps sending rockets (tenths of rockets every day) to these cities during the day and night. The image that the media passes to the world is wrong.
24. If they usedd bunkeer busting bombs on the tunnels this
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.11.12)
would not happen, but what PM is afraid to use them, just guess?
25. #16
EAM ,   Ra'Anana, Israel   (11.11.12)
I assume you are just looking to 'stir the pot', otherwise you are simply uninformed and without a conscience! Though there are many examples of Hamas targeting civilians (indiscriminate rocket fire being the prime one), perhaps you may want to research the attack on Daniel Viflic! He was not a soldier but a high school aged child who was killed by an anti-tank rocket while riding on a SCHOOL BUS!!!! Get a clue you ignorant moron!
26. #25 so, there are three Palestinians unaccounted for
observer ,   Egypt   (11.11.12)
27. #26
EAM ,   Ra'Anana, Israel   (11.11.12)
And your point is???? When you poke at the sleeping bear long enough, he will eventually wake up and take a swing at you. The bear is slowly awakening! Indiscriminate rocket fire at civilian targets does not compare to targeted fire from aircraft. The goal of IDF fire is to kill those responsible for firing at our civilians and soldiers. Firing from populated civilian areas will virtually guarantee civilian casualties when fire is returned. That is Hamas's way of garnering world sympathy. Why are you not complaining about a government endangering its citizens by allowing terrorists to continue fire from civilian areas? We will not run and we will not hide, unlike your armed forces deployed in Sinai when faced with similar threats from terrorists!!!
28. ... hook, line, and sinker
split ,   US   (11.11.12)
Any of your pinheads have an idea what the anti-tank missile can do to a tank not to mention a Jeep loaded with soldiers ? ,...
29. To # 22 Bravo, I couldn't say it better
alex ,   usa   (11.13.12)
30. 28 Split
Nadirs ,   Israel Los Angeles   (11.13.12)
This is a case of too much power. Anti-Take-Missiles are made for penetrating thick armor, that's why the missile went in through one side and out the other. the damage and injuries were caused by the tail flash and shrapnel from the Jeeps doors . It's my guess the charge didn't detonate until it went through the Jeep. Thankfully that's probably why the injuries were relatively light. G-D bless all those who live in Israel and protect our soldiers.
