1. To our brave Israeli soldiers!
Mina ,   Haifa, Israel   (11.16.12)
Thank you for protecting us! May you be blessed, may you be kept safe and return to us soon. "May the LORD bless you and guard you. May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you. May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace" Amen
2. Sending in our ground troops should be a last resort
Alex   (11.16.12)
The airforce and artillery should be the nr 1 to destroy targets in Gaza, we should only risk our ground troops if it's a matter of last resort. I'd rather see us bombarding whole of Gaza from distance than putting Israelis in risk by going into Gaza.
3. Be Strong and Resolute Israel
Jon From the Nile ,   Niles, USA   (11.16.12)
Israel must absolutely significantly "aggravate the operation" in Gaza now! World public opinion is always against Israel so pay it no mind. A ground offensive is now necessary with rocket attacks able to do a lot of physical and psychological damage in a short period of time. Of course Hamas will signal a truce at it's convenience just when the IDF is fully ready to launch the ground offensive. Double up on the airstrikes if necessary and bring greater lethality into the equation.
4. High percentage chance of Palestinian getting killed by fire
Arnold ,   Canada   (11.16.12)
I was wondering when this scenario would be brought up. Anything fired into Israel towards Jerusalem can just as easily kill Palestinians as well as Israelis. And what happens if a rocket hits the Dome ?
5. Watch Your Northern Border
David ,   Minneapolis, USA   (11.16.12)
Please do not take your eyes off the Northern Border. This could be a pincer movement to catch Israel between the two Iranian proxies in the Region, Hezbollah and Hamas. Iran is the instigator behind this, to try to draw fire from Syria and protect Assad. Phase 1 is Hamas, Phase II will be Hezbollah.
6. To put this in perspective
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (11.16.12)
During Operation Cast Lead 1 10,000 reservists were called up. It appears that our glorious leader has decided that it is time for the IDF to retake the Gaza Strip. Well actually he has no choice if he doesn't he will lose the election. Wonder if 'Sarah B' is flying in to take her place in the lead tank of the invasion force?
More posturing from Netanyahu and Ehud " Barach " nothing will come of this ,just a handful ,literally ,of Hamas terror merchants eliminated , billions of shekels wasted and a photo opportunity.
8. Upon time !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.16.12)
I Quote - 'We're going to significantly aggravate the operation,' state official says. Comment - To take out the weakest enemie first seems right in this case. The Northern front comes second. And Israel - se to it , that you dont listen to those that demand a ceasfire, finish this once and for all. Arn.Sweden.
9. 75001
Sarah B. ,   U.S.A / Israel   (11.16.12)
Its me Sarah..they coming to take me away ha huh they coming to take me away hu hu...
10. RFI
dov ,   usa   (11.16.12)
is it possible that Israel will send ground forces into gaza because they do not want to bomb populated areas that contain rocket launches. If so, that is a tough cal to makel.
11. The post at No. 9 is not mine.
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
12. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
Tuesday the 20th. But I did not serve in the Armored Corps. How about you, Sarah? Where will you be? Hiding under your bed, quaking in fear? You still haven't told us where you served in the IDF. Can it be .... that you didn't? You -- the number one critic of haredim who do not serve -- did not yourself serve. Well, well, well, aren't you the little hypocrite?
13. Two words - PARKING LOT
Bob ,   USA   (11.16.12)

15. Brave?I think not.
nabil ,   usa   (11.16.12)
Brave?I think not.
16. #13 One alternative
Alex   (11.16.12)
Would be to evacuate all civilians in Gaza and drop a neutron bomb. Minor damage to infrastructure + all terrorists dead from radiation.
17. AYC
Douglas Fireman ,   Chicago, USA   (11.16.12)
With all my love to my extended family and friends. You have what it takes to make the difference. Blessings . Am Yisroael Chai!
18. Good work IDF
Fredrik T ,   Sweden   (11.16.12)
In many ways the operation seems to be working well so far IDF. Many targets seems to have been taken out, however few terrorist have been eliminated which means that there's still much work to be done. Best wishes to the IDF forces in the coming operations!
19. alex#2 you are
arne ,   chicago usa   (11.16.12)
right on the money- just bomb and use cannon fire for at least 2 weeks if not longer--keep the troops at close proxcimitry- cut off electric until all is quiet and then if need be send in the troops to finish the job.this is a big job,but it might be a great opportunity to clean the mess up once and foreall. like they say"the window is open" let's get in before it closes.
20. Let unemployment support Obama clames to democracy
Miron ,   USA   (11.16.12)
Not photographs of children dismembered by IDF.
21. two points
Barney ,   USA   (11.16.12)
ground troops should not be used until the target is softened up to the max from the air. next point, any rocket landing in Jerusalem should set off an explosion on the dome. then the whole islamic world can point their finger at hamas and the Jews can get that thing off of Jewish holy ground.
22. Iran
David Asleson ,   Minneapolis USA   (11.16.12)
? Iran started this to take news away from them. So they continue the ....Nuclear-B
23. IDF - Hashem be with you - Light of Ahura Mazda Guide you.
Son Of Cyrus   (11.16.12)
24. Israel is expanding - root cause of conflict
Scott ,   Auckland New Zealand   (11.17.12)
Israel is expanding. This is the root cause of the conflict. What the world is seeing now is slow-motion genocide and gradualised land theft. Zionists can't seem to learn from history.
25. The Islamists thugs of Gaza have brought it upon themselves!
Adam Smith   (11.17.12)
26. To all Sarah B Wannabe's
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.17.12)
My credentials are solid. I served in the store handing out boots and Helmets. I was in the rear with the gear My commander said I was the best distributor they ever had, but unfortunately, after 6 months, I applied for and received compassionate leave as my Liar business in the US was suffering so I had to get back to my day job.
