1. After 60+ years of independence, why the hell should south's
tom ,   tel aviv   (11.10.12)
residents "brace" for anything but a good night's sleep knowing that IDF will take care of things?!!! I know: it sounds like a joke in today's Post-Zionist israel!
2. Bibi, what are you waiting for?
Maurice ,   Montreal   (11.10.12)
Any other country would have responded very strongly a long time ago! It's high time you entered Gaza and cleaned up all the terrorist scum. How long should Israel`s southern citizens suffer? Or are you sacred of Obama?
3. Sharon's mistake, we pay
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.10.12)
what a mess. Sharon's pull out of Gaza did no good, and while he sleeps, we have to pay for such stupidity.
4. Helping Gantz
Chief of General Staff Gantz called for a security assessment. Let me help you: giving territory and weapons to people who call for your extermination is stupid.
5. I Had Enough....
Reuven Brauner ,   Raanana, Israel   (11.10.12)
We will now clobber Gaza with everything in the arsenal, and bulldoze the entire area. All Gazan Arabs will be deported to Egypt. Gaza will be returned to former Gush Katif residents, made into a resort area with 5-star hotels, and repopulated with 2 million homeless Jews from New Jersey.
6. #5:While sounding crazy: you make total sense! Dream on...
tom ,   tel aviv   (11.10.12)
7. Bibi's only interested in Iran
This has been a pre-recorded message
8. The right way.
michael Pielet ,   Israel   (11.10.12)
What Israel needs to do is listen to the leftists. Create a second arab terrorist state in Judea and Samaria. Let the Jews living in Jerusalem and Gush Dan join in the terrorist festivities. Before the withdrawal from Gaza did not the leftists stand up in the Knesset and make jokes about missilles coming out of Gaza. Well, ha, ha.
9. How can the gov't of Israel expect their citizens to stay by
Moshe ,   Usa   (11.10.12)
the shelters. The best thing that you can do is expell gooozans from goooza starting with the eastern portion. Fence off 20% of it & invite the population to move westbound into ejypt. Get rid of them. Their terrorism is harmful to Israelis & the nation's economy. Please
10. #3 sit down! there were rocket salvos b4 the pullout!
yay I know that's news 2 you!
11. no thank u, I like being homeless in Jersey...
homeless in N.Jersey ,   USA   (11.10.12)
better than being blasted in Gaza! (of course if its important to you, perhaps you will give a thought to moving out of Raanana and into Gaza!)
12. Too bad
John the grace ,   Lagos, nigeria   (11.11.12)
It is a shame that this is happening this way. No man in right sense of his mind would dwell in southern israel. I would even prefer african desert to this kind of place befor this crazy guys use my head for experiment. A soldier lost his two hands and tomorrow another will loose his two legs and so on. An army that defeated seven nation are now quaking before untrained element simply because they have forgetten their roots. Let israel return to their God and he will return to them. So sorry this is a bad time for them. The iranian war has started already.. Good luck guys but if your ball got blown off, take it... Your blood shall be upon the watch's head.
13. Hamas is a plague
marcelo tuchman ,   RIO,BRAZIL   (11.11.12)
every plague needs to be destroyed with a effective medicine. IDF! Is possible to Israel kill terrorists without kill not terrorists
14. Only answer - permanently cut Gaza off from Rafah border
Dr. L. Brnd ,   San Diego, USA   (11.11.12)
This will never end unless IDF occupies a strip to the Med between Rafah and the rest of Gaza that is too wide [3-4 km] to tunnel under. Annex this strip to Israel for good, isolating Gaza. Lightly populated zone easily cleared to create a NoMansLand. Weapon smuggling ends for good, no matter what Iran and Sudan try to do, and Cairo's cheating on Sinai demilitarization with arms smuggling becomes irrelevant. Then just cut off the electricity and water sent from israel, and limit EU goods at the crossings to bare essentials [no more luxurys or Hillary's pasta] - until they surrender ALL the rockets and arms in Gaza as the condition for resuming crossing access, agricultural water and power. Its called UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER, and it prevented attacks on israel for 25 years, until Cairo got the Sinai back and started letting Iranian arms go through to Gaza, in violation of a land-for-peace treaty they never intended to honor.
15. Time for missile salvos going the other way
Ben S ,   Free world   (11.11.12)
Gaza and it's leadership must be crushed now. It's time for them to raise the white flag after the dust settles.
16. It needs to stop
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.11.12)
Let's see if turning one-third of Gaza into rubble dampens their enthusiasm. If it doesn't -- well, there's always the remaining two-thirds. There isn't a single country in the world that would show the degree of patience and tolerance that Israel has demonstrated. But all things must come to an end, and it really is time for Gaza to come to an end. It was a failed experiment, anyway -- the ersatz "Palestinians" aren't capable of normal life.
17. Gazan terrorists issue a uniform statement
William ,   Israel   (11.11.12)
...and the IDF will issue a uniform response. To us, there is no difference between Gazan terrorists. The method and goals are the same, just the names they use are different.
18. Cut the electricity to Gaza
Dan Kelso   (11.11.12)
No sain country can take being fired on by Islamo Nazis from Gaza. Bomb Gaza to the ground and if Hamas uses civilians as human shields, which Islam calls for, thats their fault.
19. Israel fights to lose. Not a formula for survival.
20. #3 leave the big person alone
toni ,   usa   (11.11.12)
Leading a country is not like playing a game in ur salon. Sharon is one of a few hero people lead Israel to the date.
21. Terrorist scum use electricity to make missiles. Every time
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.11.12)
they shoot a missile, destroy an electric generating plant or a big substation. When the population get the idea that missiles being fired by terrorist scum are turning off their refrigerators, the missiles will stop.
22. after elections - operation cast lead II
scott ,   ramat gan, israel   (11.11.12)
no pm wants to start a war before elections, but next spring, there will have to be a final operation to remove hamas. the situation in the south cannot continue. only bibi will have the courage to do this.
23. The Paper Tiger
gene ,   NY, USA   (11.11.12)
Israel had over the years become a paper tiger. The whole world saw Israel's responce to its own peoples suffering, a few missiles droped, empty threats, us or egypt or turkey negotiate cease fire. What a joke.
24. Israel will not gain until arabs in gaza
Barney ,   USA   (11.11.12)
feel extreme pain. cut off all resources and turn gaza into wasteland. arabs can blame themselves.
25. does Israel have the resolve and
Barney ,   USA   (11.11.12)
courage to survive? If the Jews had the same resources when facing the Nazis would they have been as restrained as they are now? What the hell-let loose a response on these animals that they will never forget or never live to remember.
26. Sharon, Olmert are responsible for all
DT ,   TA Israel   (11.11.12)
that is happening now in the south because of withdrawing from Gaza and a failure of Cast Lead to finish the job. Will Israel ever learn
27. It is now apparent
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (11.11.12)
that we cannot unilaterally withdraw from areas we occupy without a comprehensive peace treaty. That was Sharon's mistake. Although I believe that the withdrawal from Gaza was a kneejerk reaction because of the Red Cross withdrawal from gaza. Israel could no longer afford a full scale occupation hence our withdrawal
28. That's the price tag for Israel's illegal occupation.
Rashid   (11.11.12)
Resistance and rockets, until Israel withdraws from ALL the occupied Palestinian territory.
29. A solution...
yossi ,   London,UK   (11.11.12)
A Country with such a military power that can't defeat a few thousands of Terrorist because they are too bloody afraid what the rest of the world will think,and maybe Israel will lose it's "RIGHT" to exist... Israel DOES NOT need to ask for a right to exist from anyone,it received that right from GOD itself ! Fear not Israel and return to god and he will guide you and destroy your enemies ! We must not be merciful against our enemies they need to be killed and exterminated and only then peace will be achievable. Between People who actually want it. Nobody really likes us so why give a damn about what the world thinks ? We need to DO for ourselves !!!
30. Gaza
Observer11 ,   Thornhill   (11.11.12)
It is obvious by now that the government feels its hands are tied. The time has come for residents of the south to create local militias that will be unrestrained in their response.
