1. Israel the aggressor??
What are they smoking?? Being pounded by rockets for 5 years is showing restraint long enough. I knew the world would not understand why we attack after we showed restraint for so long. We should have retaliated right away. This is who we are dealing with...

he is as blind, stupid and anti semitic as all the other islamic terrorist human trash
3. Is Morsi trying to get rid of Kandil ?

4. Can someone please explain?
Rabbi Yakov Lazaros ,   USA   (11.16.12)
We keep reading that the IDF is taking out all the Hamas launching pads. But the missles keep coming. How is this possible? Unless Israel avoids attacking the launching pads in civilian areas. This is a strategic mistake. Israel must bomb every potential launching site. Then the Arabs will be the ones asking for a cease fire.
5. #1
JS ,   USA   (11.16.12)
The united nations hasnt spoken for the world since its inception
6. wolf blitzer of CNN was very worried about gaza civilians
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.16.12)
being killed but not about Israelis being killed. So tell me what was the son of a BBC broadcaster doing in gaza so close to the terrorists that he got killed, making a tape of a rocket launch?
7. Up to Israel what the headlines will be Saturday morning.
Miron ,   USA   (11.16.12)
10% unemployment in US and riots in Madrid. OR Israel killed 500 Gaza children. On my mind we should be solving troubles, both, our own and our friends, instead of creating opportunities for our enemies.
8. If they were pounding 1000's would be killed not 3
Engajo   (11.16.12)
It's all a lot of nonsense, political correctness, making a big show by bombing empty fields, abandoned tin-shack farm houses and empty tunnels. Bozo Barak and the IDF are deliberately failing to win, just as they have done for many years now... They prefer to send the flower of Jewish youth in on the ground unnecessarily, they don't respect jewish life, only Arabs.
9. #8 speaks for me
David ,   Canada   (11.16.12)
Absolutely 10,000% correct. One has a Jewish child, worries about and raises him for 18 years, only to be sent on meaningless dangerous missions, often unarmed, as with the paintball guns. How dare IDF send soldiers on the ground when this can all be done from the air. Better question: why even bother having a country if it is still free to kill Jews? If the current crop of politicians cannot properly protect the Jewish nation because all are spineless and gutless, they should step aside....not send somebody else's child in to be maimed or worse. Four young IDF soldiers were seriously and permanently wounded a few days ago when an anti-tank missile hit their jeep.....and not the slightest response. If the world makes a stink, point out the hypocrisy and double standards, given recent and current wars around the world. Enough of the sickening ghetto mentality.
10. pounding
Deb ,   Ft. Smith / USA   (11.16.12)
So many many times Israel has been shot at from these people and tolerated, now as usual they will try to make Israel out to be wrong because they are standing up for themselves. They are not wrong NO other Nation has ever tolerated what they have and yes # 8 is absolutely right.
11. Any Collateral Damage is Unfortunate
Noah Lev ,   LosAngelesUSA   (11.16.12)
During the siege of Berlin 1945, the Russians lost over 200,000, after pounding the city with thousands of artillery and rocket launchers. Israel knows that if it invades the Strip, without first pounding it, end to end, it will face immense casualties ( hoped for by Hamas) as it did in Lebanon. Arabia, will finance tthe repair and replacement of any bldgs destroyed, infrasturcture, etc. as it did in Lebanon. Iran will resupply Hamas. Sooooo,Israel as to "waste"and "end" Hamas personnel, down to the lowest terrorist fighter. The reverse, see Syria's Assad butchering of his OWN PEOPLE. WITH IMPUNITY. i said years ago that either Hamas/or Hez and their affiliates, must be destroyed, no cease fires, surrender only. That must be Israel's goal, even if Goldstone rears his ugly head againforthe UN. Wolf should have been dismayed by any collateral damage..Jew and Arab. Like Carter, he is getting senile.
12. why do pilots strike open fields in Gaza open war?
observer ,   Egypt   (11.16.12)
because they can get in that way the commission of targeting precisely.
13. CNN is Anti-Semitic Propaganda
elizabethlynne ,   Dallas, Texas!   (11.16.12)
I notice that there are too many of the US media sources that show devastation in Gaza and feature vignettes about the victims, but not about Israeli victims. They do not report, but they know, that the IDF takes extreme measures to try to avoid harm to Gaza civilians. Lies of omission. Boycott CNN. They are vile. My heart breaks for the child killed in Gaza and his family. Why was he in a vulnerable place? His family knew where the IDF would be operating. Hamas is a group of cowards, hiding among civilians... drawing fire on innocent people. It's a tragedy.
David J. Kelly ,   Chicago , Illinois,   (11.16.12)
Ain't war great! Ben wanted this and I'm sure it's most appreciated by all parties involved, there never is enough war, and in the middle east, you have hit pay dirt! Cha Ching! The banking community is happy once again and it's ALL about the banking community!
15. Pres. Mohamed Morsi WWED?
USA   (11.16.12)
Question for you sir: How would Egypt react if an entrenched organization repeatedly almost daily, launched high-explosive projectiles into Egypt with no regard for Egyptian life or maiming Egyptians, while destroying Egyptian cars, buildings, property, injuring and killing Egyptians. And this continues and continues. WWED — What would Egypt do?
16. Gaza Pounding .... may the people
Adam ,   Zichron Ya'acov   (11.16.12)
of Gaza have a thoughtful weekend and perhaps understand that the continued support of their regime will only bring them this endless cycle of destruction, probably for a hundred years and more if necessary.
17. #12 Terrorists launch rockets from open fields
Cynthia ,   USA   (11.16.12)
Also soccer fields, behind schools, UN buildings and next to mosques. They're particularly fond of fields where they can launch rockets, then hide in the bushes with civilian areas in close proximity to use as human shields. That's how the cowardly Palestinian terrorists earn paychecks from Iran.
18. #17 Cynthy baby...
m   (11.16.12)
I would not want to hide in the bushes Cynthy baby unless you were there hiding with
19. #18 Deja Vu, Abu Marco?
Cynthia ,   USA   (11.16.12)
Hezbollah did the same in 2006. Look where it got you. Did they ever finish rebuilding Lebanon? Experts in self-destruction.
20. to Cynthia genius
observer ,   Egypt   (11.16.12)
they launch rockets from among the civilians for if they get caught, civilians will be blown up with them serving the cause. Never do they launch rockets from open fields.
21. #20 "serving the cause"
Cynthia ,   USA   (11.16.12)
Paid proxies of Iran. They fire kassams and bombs at Israel for money. They put their own civilians in harms way for money. Not too honorable.
22. To: No. 20
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
Thank you for reinforcing what we have always known -- terrorists are hyenas with absolutely no respect for human life. Some "cause" they -- and you -- espouse.
23. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
No, they strike open fields because beneath those open fields are the smuggling tunnels. Which then promptly collapse.
24. gaza
spookey ,   birmingham uk   (11.16.12)
so the eygptian showed his true colors he supports hamas , so its ok for hamas to fire rockets on israel , if the ground forces do go in then wipe out hamas once and for all
25. #24 No warplane umbrella, No ground troops, SIMPLE
observer ,   Egypt   (11.16.12)
Israeli pilots will not be able to go to sleep if they return home "safe". They survived the anti-aircraft missiles by SHEER LUCK.
26. to #21, they left soldiers die HONORABLY
observer ,   Egypt   (11.16.12)
27. #25 - over 1000 sorties of several jets each
William ,   Israel   (11.16.12)
over Gaza in the past 3 days. And all of them survived anti-aircraft missiles? Either that's wonderful luck, the kind that delivered Israel a victory against Egypt and Syria in 6 days.... or Hamas has gotten a severe beating and isn't up to the same challenge it was last week.
